Doctors Scott and Melody DeMent, a husband-and-wife team, each followed a different path that led them toward chiropractic care. Scott started out as a chef in New Jersey before he decided to return to Arizona and follow in the footsteps of his chiropractor father. At the same time, Melody’s struggles with headaches and asthma made her turn to the field for her own health. The two met while attending New York Chiropractic College and shortly thereafter started their business, where they specialize in spinal therapies such as decompression and cold-laser treatments.
At Naturopathic Medicine of Southern Arizona, naturopathic doctor Garrett Smith strives to allay patient maladies and fill noggins with knowledge about illnesses and know-how about treatments. A wide range of services, from weight management and nutrition education to laboratory analysis and low-intensity laser therapy, bolster patient health. The doctor also provides nutrition mediation between children and green beans, and treats chronic diseases or gastrointestinal issues.
Within Specialists in Dermatology's 16,200-square-foot facility, board-certified physicians and physician assistants aim to maintain or beautify skin through general, cosmetic, and surgical procedures. Consultations help skin doctors and patients to craft general treatment plans that can stop the spread of conditions such as acne, hair loss, and polka dots. Spa-like cosmetic services treat the body's outer layer to chemical peels, and high-tech, non-invasive treatments zap off unwanted hair and freeze stubborn fat cells. The clinic's surgical team can also treat more serious issues such as skin cancer. Each of Specialists in Dermatology's physician assistants must pass the Physician Assistant National Certifying Examination to obtain a two-year certification and learn the 500 different ways to pronounce "freckle."
The laser systems at New Looks Wellness Spa & Salon harness diverse wavelengths and specialized powers to contour torsos, reduce hair, and rejuvenate appearances. Unlike lasers developed by NASA scientists to engrave the moon with teasing Russian messages, the spa's FDA-approved gadgets fulfill their beauty-bolstering missions without damaging their targets. For nonlaser enhancement, a slate of chemical peels, microdermabrasion treatments, and dermaplaning technology liberates dead, dulling skin cells to reveal the fresh faces underneath. New Looks also offers a host of other spa and salon services including waxing, hair extensions, Botox and fillers, facials, massages, and acupuncture.
Und1sputed's experienced instructors boost metabolism, self-esteem, and self-defense skills during martial-arts-based and boxing fitness classes in more than 50 scheduled timeslots each week. During one-hour boxing classes, students learn basic skills and professional training methods such as jumping rope, reviewing Rock 'Em Sock 'Em–robots footage, and running medicine-ball drills while admiring the center's full-size regulation boxing ring. A mixed-martial-arts class combines boxing, kickboxing, and grappling techniques to get exercisers' feet flying and hearts pumping. Learn core tenets of self-defense during the Bar Room Brawl class, an intense one-hour workout that targets excess fat with kick-punch combinations, bag work, and toning moves for the abs and gluteals. Classes are followed by open-mat rolls, and patrons have access to a large selection of weights ranging up to 200 pounds, the same weight as 10,000 pro-wrestling VHS tapes.
Tucson Racquet & Fitness Club's clinic will meet every Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. for five straight weeks (a $90 value). Lessons are taught by expert instructors and consist of intense hitting drills, strategy, footwork, girthy grunts, and supervised play. With a 4:1 student-instructor ratio, you'll always have watchful eyes to monitor your progress and make sure you're not sneaking in corked racquets. Regardless of one's swing swagger, all players are placed into compatible groups based on ability and the number of rings on their torso stump. By clinic's end, rookie racqueteers will transform into veteran volley maestros that propel slingshot swings with a Bruce Lee accuracy (Lee was actually a much better tennis player than he was a martial artist).
As a certified plastic surgeon with the American Board of Plastic Surgery, Dr. Gwen Maxwell provides a combination of experience, technical skill, and aesthetic intuition in each medical procedure. With a staff of dermal doyens, clients receive treatments with advanced equipment and techniques. The laser hair treatments last about 10–15 minutes each, can result in a permanent reduction in hair growth, and are ideal for congregations of follicle foes. Hairs on the face, forearms, underarms, or bikini line are wicked from your pores with ease using Candela GentleLASE or Candela GentleYAG laser systems. Both lasers can accommodate a variety of skin types, aim to reduce patient discomfort, and speed up the treatment time by using a large spot size that covers an impressive surface area. The beam of light passes though the skin where it mows down follicle forests and opens up a smooth subdivision of skin.
