Holden Zalma knows the toll that exertion can take on muscles. Before he received his massage license, he helped to train USC's football, basketball, and swimming teams while he studied to be a physical therapist. After graduation, Holden founded MetaTouch Therapeutic Massage and Wellness Center, where he shares his burgeoning 20 years of massage-therapy experience with others. His philosophy is simple: alleviate pain and treat injuries by scouting out symptoms, hunting down their root causes, and treating the body as a whole by ignoring its unsightly seams. He and his staff of trained practitioners accomplish this task by blending techniques—such as massage, stretching, exercise, and acupuncture—to relieve pain, improve performance, and reduce the risk of future injuries.
When Dr. Abraham Tzadik decides to do something, few things can stand in his way. From serving in the Israeli military as an ear, nose, and throat specialist to climbing Mount Kilimanjaro, his cumulative life experiences set him apart as a dedicated and driven man. This drive is reflected in his work, which spans more than 38 years and includes reconstructive and cosmetic surgery. His procedures range from face-lifts to liposuction, and his nonsurgical treatments revivify the skin with intense pulsed light or the gentle flicker from early vacation stills.
Dermal fillers, laser therapies, and liquid face-lifts represent a trio of Clear Medical's noninvasive alternatives to cosmetic surgery. Doctors administer each treatment, using their knowledge of anatomy, physiology, and apples to reverse or repair signs of aging. In addition to age-management services, the medical personnel treat health concerns such as excess weight, migraines, and acne.
Renowned physician Dr. Andre Berger and his staff at Rejuvalife Vitality Institute aim to restore vibrancy to world-weary bodies with a blend of modern medical techniques and time-honored holistic therapies. Dr. Berger's repertoire of figure-sculpting procedures coaxes fatty tissues from hips, buttocks, and thighs to leave sleeker silhouettes. The noninvasive or minimally invasive techniques, which include skin-tightening lasers and liposuction, allow Dr. Berger to renegotiate bodily curves without the need for general anesthesia or costly bribes to the bosses of lipid unions. He also helps patients shed pounds with a holistic medicinal approach, combining hormone therapy with nutritional and lifestyle counseling to give patients control over their own fitness destinies.
After graduating from Cornell University, Dr. Brian Evans established a practice in California in the hopes of evolving cosmetic surgery results from the "operated" look of the past to more dramatic yet natural transformations. He bolsters youthful looks with cosmetic surgeries such as implants, tummy tucks, and rhinoplasty, and he has appeared as a cast physician on the E! Network's Dr. 90210. He and his team can beautify clients with nonsurgical procedures such as laser hair removal and laser skin rejuvenation, and they also treat patients with dermatological ailments such as acne, abnormal pigmentation, or having the same fingerprints as Al Capone.
Students at Align Beverly Hills Pilates have a lot more than mats at their disposal to get the most of their Pilates workouts. The center's private, semi-private, and group classes might incorporate reformer machines to help students strengthen their cores, or they might rely on the specialty machines of the Gyrotonic Method to increase flexibility and range of motion.
