The Women's Wellness Weekend is all about educating women about building a healthier, happier life and inspiring them to positively change their lifestyle. During the two days of events, you'll get solutions to everything, including stress, relationships, weight issues, parenting, self-confidence, and more from keynote speaker Dr. Jana Joshu and a variety of special guests, including surprise guests from The Biggest Loser who are no longer technically surprise guests, but it would still make them feel good if you act surprised. Other speakers include dancers, Pilates instructors, consultants, motivational speakers, psychologists, and more.
Whether retooling the body's hormone levels or removing tiny impurities from its pores, there's no treatment too big or small for the staff at Solutions Wellness. On the spa side of things, hair-removal expert and aesthetician Cassee Young uses wax to eradicate unwanted fuzz and save her clients from the burden of regular shaving. For solutions of a more medical nature, advanced practice nurse Cristina Moore helms a clinical team that specializes in bioequivalent-hormone replacement therapy and medical weight-loss strategies.
While awaiting treatment, guests can relax and enjoy a warm or cool beverage in the welcoming reception area, whose golden walls are accented by red- and orange-toned prints and bright-red leather chairs.
The technicians at LaserDerm Medspa use lasers to smooth and contour bodies. They specialize in laser hair removal on bikini lines, underarms, and toes. To whittle down excess curves, they activate a Zerona device that uses low-level lasers to cause fat cells to release their contents as clients lie down and relax, read, or listen to the Tuvan throat singing playing on their iPod. The body-contouring treatments also include cavi-lipo sessions, in which a vibrating handset breaks down adipose tissue and tightens areas of loose skin or unwanted fat. Additionally, the center offers treatments for skin issues such as lines, scars, or sun damage.
Local physician Dwaine Allison's "feel it and fix it" motto permeates each facet of his professional career, from the chiropractic care to the ancillary wellness services he performs at Wellness Center of Franklin LLC. Along with his team, Dr. Allison employs a number of innovative therapies, including high-tech NRG laser allergy treatments, designed to bring relief to those with allergies to food or seasonal irritants.
Adam Roberts first delved into traditional Chinese medicine as a means of helping his wife cope with the symptoms of an idiopathic blood disorder. He discovered a true passion for helping people and, as he puts it, “a better way to get better.” Today, he employs those techniques in relaxation and aromatherapy treatments at Herbal Health & Wellness. Seeking out clusters of nerves and energy in the body, he works to remove tension using pleasant-smelling essential oils and strategically applied pressure.
After honing her skills as a managing partner at the Body Enhancement Center in Paducah, Kentucky, Elizabeth Harris took the reins at the second location in Franklin. Once she actually purchased the business, she moved to a larger building and expanded services to include lypossage, oxygen treatments, body wraps, and her own body-contouring creation, CelluSleek. Harris also created her own skincare line, Alleia Skin, based on the legend of Alleia, the siren who discovered five natural streams in Capri.
With the goal of bettering body image, the spa staffers perform massages, facials, and body wraps. They also use the Medilift system, which targets stubborn fatty areas and is championed by celebrity speaker Robin McGraw. The newly installed Celebrity Room accommodates up to four simultaneous services during business events, social gatherings, or sweet-16 parties. Old-World European decor, complimentary wine and cheese, and a lack of pickpocketing chimpanzees cultivate an atmosphere of hospitality and relaxation.
Growing Younger's squad of physicians and staffers blends hormonal balance with natural and prescription remedies personalized to each patient to help to slim physiques, boost vigor, and make skin appear more youthful. Botox injections, dermal fillers, facials, and SkinMedica products all work to smooth wrinkles and produce glowing visages. Bodies follow suit as the doctors and staff aim to hone in on hormonal imbalances that advance weight gain and aid in shedding pounds with hCG diets, appetite suppressants, lipotropic injections, and installations of anticheeseburger electric fences. To polish off slimmer physiques, a pair of laser treatments exiles unwanted hair from bodies, and different lasers enhance skin tones, iron out wrinkles, and reduce redness.
