Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Allan Parungao has written the book on plastic surgery—quite literally, in fact. The co-author of A Woman's Guide to Cosmetic Breast Surgery and Body Contouring, who has also written about surgery for physicians' textbooks and presented his skin-cancer research to a number of physicians' associations, Dr. Parungao knows the concerns and questions that may arise when patients consider plastic surgery. Before beginning any procedure, Dr. Parungao takes time with each client to understand his or her unique goals and desired results, whether from facial, breast, or body-contouring surgery.
More than 10 years ago, Transformation Bodywork owner Kathleen Fanning eschewed her corporate career for a more wholesome, fulfilling path. After earning her massage therapist certification in 2004, she traveled to an Indian orphanage where provided massage therapy to children with polio. She now works with two other licensed massage therapists at Transformation Bodywork, where they strive to impart tranquility on clientele through a variety of Eastern healing practices. Along with massage therapy services that range from hot stone to cranio-sacral, Transformation Bodywork also offers reflexology, health counseling, and personal training. Each service adopts a holistic approach, and the health counseling sessions cover all aspects of nourishment, including relationships and physical activity. Personal trainers travel to home gyms and health clubs to work within client schedules. Kathleen also shares deeksha—a spiritual practice through which she aims to impart clear mindedness, inner tranquility, and joyfulness to her clients, among other benefits.
At Chirosport Family Health Center, Dr. Brian L. Sailor helps patients heal from injury, stress, or sickness with non-invasive physical therapy.

Here, patients can also assuage aches or fight the urge to smoke with specialized acupuncture procedures, or asses and treat their allergies with BioSET enzyme therapy.

Clinical staff at The Center for Health and Nutrition design custom dietary plans that aim to drop one to five pounds from clients’ frames each week. During the initial consultation, a body composition test analyzes five areas to determine the body’s lean tissue to fat ratio, propensity to harbor extraterrestrials, and basal metabolic rate. A registered dietitian then creates a customized eating plan based on the client’s eating habits and body chemistry, incorporating 21 nutritionally complete OptiFast liquid meal replacements over the course of six weeks. Staff will also assess progress and modify the plan as necessary during three 15-minute follow-up sessions.
