Before settling down in Arizona, Tracy McDonald made her home all over the world. She spent time in Senegal while volunteering for the Peace Corps and lived in Madagascar while participating in a coral-reef sustainability and diving expedition. She also studied yoga in India and went on to become a yoga instructor, as well as a board-certified polarity instructor, a cranial-sacral therapist, and an expert in issues related to weight and body image. She now uses her expertise to help clients revamp their lives inside and out with such services as Ashtanga yoga sessions, cranial-sacral sessions, and lifestyle coaching.

At Naked Body + Bath, customers can pour the bath product of their choice into big brass tubs of warm water before slowly submerging their feet into a fragrant bath. These complimentary foot soaks—lauded by KHOU-11 as “heaven”—are one of many ways Naked Body + Bath empowers customers to experiment with the store’s selection of all-natural, customizable bath products.
To find ideal skin serum, customers begin by perusing a selection of unscented bath soaps, creams, salts, and lotions that are free of parabens and other chemicals. They then can dress them up with more than 200 fragrant oils, botanicals, milks, and glitters. Staffers allow customers to sample every product in-store and provide wells of already-concocted recipes to help spark ideas. Should customers mix a masterpiece, the staff record recipes and keep them on file to recreate at the customer’s bidding.
Thanks to full medical staff, which includes registered nurses, medical assistants, and physicians, MedShape Weight Loss Clinic's weight-loss programs pack a more powerful punch than most. Take the signature Slim Now Therapy program, for example. It helps vanquish unwanted fat with medical techniques that include prescription-strength appetite suppressants, nutritional supplements, and, if needed, hormone therapy. Other helpful tools at the staff's disposal include Fat Burner vitamin injections and several methods for analyzing body composition without using mail-order x-ray specs.
FIT Medical Weight Loss helps clients to lose unwanted pounds with medically supervised weight-loss regimens, prescription and natural amino acid appetite-suppressant programs, and energy-boosting injections. The custom, doctor-led programs are easy to follow, with motivational, in-depth coaching and refrigerators that emit a tsk-ing sound after 8 p.m. Unlike other weight-loss facilities, FIT does not sell clients prepackaged food or shake meal replacements. Instead, patrons are provided with healthy recipes as they strive to meet their weight-loss goals.
