Helmed by the accomplished chiropractic doctor Neda Mehrabani Ladjevardi, the friendly staff of the Health Clinic of Southern California pampers minds and bodies with a host of holistic healing techniques that includes detoxifying footbath treatments. During each 30-minute session, feet soak in a gently churning footbath as the treatment draws out the body’s accumulated toxins, heavy metals, and lost socks, and then burbles them away. Many clients notice a reduction of aches and pains and increased energy following the detoxifying session, and the treatment also aims to reduce blood pressure, alleviate the symptoms of heart disease, and boost immune-system efficiency.

Four doctors comprise Tri Health Medical Institute's staff: board-certified internist Dr. Nima Yavari, neurodiagnostics guru Dr. B. Bharatwal, and Doctors of Chiropractic Hedyeh Ranjijifroody and Mahnaz Azimzadeh. Together, they can perform an array of services, from physical therapy to laser hair removal to facials. Weight loss is one of their specialties, for which they offer several solutions. Physician-supervised weight loss programs, for example, use high tech body scanners to measure factors such as metabolic rate, bone mass, and hydration to develop a custom course of treatment that may include fat-burning supplements or B 12 injections. For those more focused on reducing problem spots than total pounds lost, the center also offers ultrasonic cavitation?otherwise known as non-surgical liposuction?that use low-frequency sound waves to melt fat and flush it away.
