As he explained on Park City Television's Mountain Morning Show, Cory Hymas realized about 10 years ago that he was carrying around 65 pounds of excess weight. Though he was uncomfortable and unhappy, it wasn't until he found himself holding his breath just to be able to tie his shoes that he decided to take action. Hymas believed that the best way to learn about health and fitness was to teach others about it. As the CEO of Inspired Life Center, he now has the opportunity to do just that.
Today, Hymas helps individuals to explore the link between their emotional and physical selves, and recognize that the way they feel is just as important as their nutrition and exercise. His compassionate staff keeps clients accountable for their dietary choices at regular meetings, and empowers them with life principles, tools, and products that allow them to move past their personal barriers. The team can also enhance natural results with high-frequency ultrasonic-liposuction treatments, which work to trim inches without invasive methods such as surgery or scolding them away.
The curriculum at Elase Academy is a well-rounded look at what it takes to be a salon professional—maybe because cofounder Carrie Brinton isn’t just a skincare expert but also a business owner who employs more than 20 master aestheticians herself. Thanks to her influence, students learn the principles of customer service, business operations, and sales at the same time as they practice their aesthetics skills at the school’s onsite spa. Brinton’s staff of experienced instructors supervises students as they treat clients to spa services both traditional and trendy. Students perform facials, chemical peels, nail services, and waxing to cover their classic treatment bases, and man ultramodern lasers to oust unwanted hair, moles, and tracking devices from the skin.
Though A Touch of New York Salon has the upscale hustle and bustle of the Big Apple, the stylists still take dedicated time to take care of each guest who walks through their door.

Between scheduled haircuts, they also offer complimentary ear and neck trims to ensure all coifs are in expert condition.
When clients book a massage with Laretta Tompkins, they can rest assured knowing they're in good hands. Not only is Laretta a licensed massage therapist and member of the Associated Bodywork and Massage Professionals organization, she has also taken numerous continuing education courses to expand her knowledge of specific techniques such as trigger point therapy, and earned certification in cupping therapy along the way. Depending on her clients' needs, she coaxes away knots with light Swedish-style techniques or more pressurized strokes––deep tissue sessions are ideal for those with chronic pain, while hot stone massage uses heat to penetrate deeper muscle layers and melt tension until it evaporates in a showy puff of steam.
Licensed massage therapist Emily Sparks attended Eagle Gate College, where she perfected hands-on techniques such as Swedish massage, deep-tissue bodywork, and opening a pickle jar with one finger. Now in the comfort of her own Spark of Life massage suite, Emily can melt stress with a relaxation massage or apply firmer kneads to relieve muscle aches and spasms.
Offering treatments that battle fat and cellulite with ultrasound cavitation, Hot Mama Body Sculpting takes the high-tech approach to helping customers look their best. Patients can shed between 1/4 and 1 inch during sessions, where technicians target specific areas such as the abs, stomach, or thighs. The noninvasive sessions target fat cells, breaking them down so they can be removed via natural bodily mechanisms. Hot Mama Body Sculpting also offers a radio frequency treatment to help tighten areas of loose skin, but results vary heavily and depend on each individual and their genetics.
The goal at Solitude Massage isn't just to temporarily relieve pain—it's also to help clients change their lives so the pain doesn’t return. To that end, the company's licensed therapists follow their custom massages with exercise suggestions and nutrition assistance, as well as advice on how to offend bears so they won't hug you. Not that the treatments aren't plenty attractive on their own. Trigger-point and structural-integration massages call on intense kneading to quell chronic pain, and hot towels and dōTerra essential oils add to the experience. Clients can also solicit a therapist for offsite shiatsu bodywork during such events as corporate parties or long waits at the ATM.
