Though diet and exercise are often touted as the best ways to lose weight, they don't often produce immediate, visible results. However, the certified technicians at Trim Body Xpress have alternative methods that do: ultrasonic cavitation and radio frequency. The noninvasive ultrasonic cavitation procedure sends low-frequency ultrasound waves to blast unwanted fat, morphing it from a solid to a liquid that is cycled through the lymphatic system. In addition to melting 1/2–3 inches of fat away during one treatment, the procedure can be coupled with a radio frequency skin-tightening treatment, which stimulates the skin's elasticity. Together, the treatments help to tighten skin, reduce cellulite, and increase the body's ability to bounce quarters off of its midsection.
Therapists at Complete Trinity Colon Hydrotherapy perform medical-grade treatments to evict toxins from the body, but that doesn't mean the office has the feel of a doctor's. Instead, flickering candles and modern art complement Asian-inspired decor that stands out against walls of saturated green, purple, and blue. In the softly lit, private treatment rooms, the therapists draw upon a time-tested therapy whose origins stretch back to ancient Egypt. The theory is simple: toxins and waste become stuck in the colon, compacting and hardening the longer they stay there, so by introducing warm water to soften and evacuate the waste, the treatment can render clean bodies with a reduced likelihood of illness.
The therapists who perform the treatment can vouch for its benefits. One, Diana, spent years suffering from intestinal problems before finding relief in hydrotherapy. The other, Nataya, brings her talent for massage to the treatment for an extra dose of healing, leaving clients as relaxed as an abacus during the Y2K scare.
