Massages are supposed to be relaxing, and the massage treatments at Valley Cellulite and Therapeutic Massage live up to that expectation. But they also have another purpose: freeing bodies from embarrassing cellulite. During cellulite massages, certified massage therapists apply targeted pressure to problem areas, breaking down pockets of subdermal tissue and releasing toxins. The result is skin that looks sleeker and smoother. Although the cellulite massages are a specialty at this Granada Hills practice, they’re not the only specialty: clients can also opt for deep-tissue or sports massages.

During his training at King's College Hospital in London, Claude Matar mastered the old-fashioned art of listening. Today, he still believes that the key to providing a successful diagnosis lies in taking the proper time and energy to listen to each client's concerns. Though he no longer practices medicine, the nutritionist, board-certified naturopathic physician, and founder of Pasadena Weight Loss Center has used his ears and his education to help thousands of clients achieve their individual health goals, including former Dallas star Linda Gray and professional football champ Dwight Hicks.
To help clients shed inches, he utilizes the highly personalized Matar method, a system he believes offers patients their best chances for long-lasting results. It begins with an in-depth evaluation including a nutrient analysis, thyroid tests, and identification of any factors inhibiting weight loss. Matar then consults with the client to develop a plan focused not only on diet and exercise but also on strategies for improved sleep, hydration, and detoxification. He and his staff stay in daily contact to answer questions regarding progress or tips for turning uneaten bear claws into table art and will also reevaluate clients' success at a weekly face-to-face meeting.
With the slow hiss of water through machinery, the flat surfaces of the hydraulic press carefully come together with 20 tons of force. Between them, an array of raw fruits and vegetables flatten, yielding every last drop of their nutritious vitamins, minerals, and plant enzymes into a pulpy liquid. The workers of Pure Juice Detox bottle the nutritious ambrosia, pack it up, and send it home with clients, who purge their bodies of toxins with daily regimens of these raw-plant cocktails. The staff packages the juices in ready-to-go three-, five-, and eight-day menus, handily numbering each bottle so customers know which juice is which.
With meals from Wholesome Vegan, going vegan doesn't have to mean extensive recipe research and tofu shopping—instead, it just entails eating the healthy prepared meals delivered to your doorstep. One day of Wholesome Vegan meals encompasses breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert, plus two snacks. A typical day might start with vegan oatmeal, for example, followed by pasta salad with basil and lemon juice, and a dinner of veggie tacos with eggplant chunks. Along the way, snack on a banana or an apple; for dessert, feast on vegan key-lime pie rather than the worst of all the vegan ice creams: plain ice. All food is made fresh weekly, and free of sodium and preservatives.
