At Venice Health and Wellness—headed by Doctor of Chiropractic David Allen—the team treats aches and ailments with gentle spinal manipulation and massage. Whether the patient is suffering from whiplash due to an auto accident or a strained back after a limbo tournament, the practitioners here draw upon years of experience to recommend the proper rehab protocol. Additionally, this clinic offers body-contouring services using the i-Lipo laser system. This noninvasive device whittles away at fat deposits without the risks of surgery.
Jay J. Garcia MD Weight Loss and Wellness Center offers individualized care and a strong network of support for patients looking to shed unwanted pounds. During an initial visit, doctors will perform a complete health assessment, blood work, and an electrocardiography. They’ll then use the results gleaned from these tests to design a weight-loss program tailored to your needs, offering a nutrition plan, dietary supplements, and FDA-approved medications that reign in your rampaging appetite and force your metabolism to increase its productivity. Weekly check-ins keep clients accountable, and most participants lose an average of 15 to 20 pounds during their first month of the program.
At Becoming New, a diverse team of licensed cosmeticians, a paramedical esthetician, a massage therapist, and nail technicians enhance appearances with modern technology. The experts shy away from invasive surgery and instead employ ultrasonic technology to target fat deposits and ultherapy to sculpt arms and necks. The spa’s arsenal also includes detoxifying and slimming body wraps, as well as chemical peels that help erase fine lines and other signs of aging. For gentler rejuvenation, skin experts treat pores to blueberry and champagne facials. The staff add the finishing touches to appearances with permanent hair removal and manicures that brighten nails with CND Shellac and Gelish polish, which resist chipping even while slapping a rude statue.
The professionals at Rx Med Spa turn back the clock with noninvasive procedures aimed at smoothing and tightening skin. They de-wrinkle faces with Botox Cosmetic and reduce the appearance of cellulite with VelaShape—a body-contouring treatment that has graced the frames of Access Hollywood and the Rachael Ray Show. During elos skin-rejuvenation treatments, they use a combination of bipolar radio frequency and light energies to help fade sunspots and freckles that spell out secret messages to the moon. Clients can pile on multiple services in one day, relaxing in between treatments in a lounge area furnished with complimentary fruit and tea.
If it’s a healing art that ends in “-puncture”, licensed acupuncturist Michael House likely practices it at All Natural Healing Medical Center. After graduating from East West College of Natural Medicine, he journeyed to China and trained in biopuncture, studying the discipline’s homeopathic injections applied at traditional acupuncture points. Specializing in non-surgical neck, back, and shoulder repair, he relies on these injections for the majority of his treatments as a surgery alternative, while also boosting health during biopuncture and prolopuncture sessions. His B12-powered medical weight-loss program burns fat while also boosting metabolism and lean muscle. Naturally, he also practices traditional shot-free acupuncture, and irons out skeletons in time for Halloween with chiropractic treatments.
