Gary Rumel, physiologist and founder of Fitworks Corrective Therapy, believes that the key to good health isn't found only in traditional Western medicine but also in caring for the body and frame by correcting musculoskeletal imbalances. In 2000, Gary pioneered a method that works to do just that—he helps patients to identify, build, and stretch specific muscle groups through custom exercises and stretches, allowing their joints to align and their posture to improve. Employing this method, he's removed 47 people from surgery waiting lists for conditions such as scoliosis and lordosis and has developed The Decompression Band, which relieves the pain associated with bulging discs.
At Master Kwon's World Class Tae Kwon Do, Grand Master and seventh-degree black belt Jin Yong Kwon imparts more than a quarter-century of tae kwon do wisdom in lessons for participants of all ages. Through tae kwon do training, pupils develop technical martial-arts skills while seeking to build traits such as self-control, respect, and confidence that carry over into other facets of life.
In 1911, when he opened Standard Optical, Henry Schubach could not have guessed that his successors would be providing LASIK treatments and contact lenses in 18 clinics. Each office fills with chatter as doctors check prescriptions and work to identify common optical issues, such as glaucoma or weeping when an onion dies. Light skips off ranks of designer frames from Coach, Maui Jim, Guess, Lacoste, and Dior, and transitional lenses darken as newly keen-eyed patrons mosey from the shop. The staff at Standard Optical has also performed more than 15,000 LASIK procedures, and offers a free consultation for those seeking to ditch frames.
At each of Crossroads Fitness' four locations throughout the Wastach Front, members of all ages build strong, healthy bodies through a regimen of group classes, personal training, and extensive wellness evaluations and health assessments. Registered dietitians and fitness experts help clients manage their fitness goals, while a schedule of BodyPump, Zumba, yoga, and resistance training burn away unwanted fat while building lean muscle. After leveling up their endurance and speed with sports-performance training or flexing their legs in a cycling class, members relax and rehabilitate muscles with on-site massage therapy.
Piloted by Board-certified physician Dr. Ehsan Hadjbian, the Vein Institute of Utah’s welcoming and experienced staff aims to relieve restless, painful, and cramping legs from the constraints of varicose and spider veins. During sclerotherapy treatments, Dr. Hadjbian will inject unsightly blood tunnels with medicine using a delicate needle. Over the course of 2–5 months, the vessel’s lining will dry out and break down, allowing the body to re-absorb it into the same black hole that sucks in stray thoughts and undigested Twizzlers. As blood is redirected to healthier veins, legs can experience improved circulation and a clearer skin canvas. A consultation and evaluation with the doctor before treatments is required and is included with this deal.
The technicians at The Body Sculpt Xpress specialize in ultrasound-cavitation body sculpting, a noninvasive technique that’s popular in Europe and Australia. Rising to fame in the United States, the treatment, featured on the Dr. Oz show, uses ultrasound waves to break down fat cells, whose contents are them removed from the body through natural metabolic processes. The techs customize treatments based on the thickness of fat and its distribution throughout the body. Their other services include massage therapy, vibration therapy, which causes a body to burn fat while standing still, and radio-frequency skin tightening.
