Lasers have long been employed to destroy unwanted hair and planets, but the technicians at Vitality Weight Loss & Wellness use them for therapeutic purposes. In fact, low-level, or cold laser therapy, can help assuage a wide range of health issues. Arthritis pain, spider veins, and even scars can begin to melt away as the laser light triggers a natural healing process within the body. Technicians can even target specific acupuncture points to jump start healing faster than traditional needles can.
But pain and blemishes aren't the technicians' only target. They also home in on unwanted habits, such as smoking. Acupuncture points still act as their road map as they aim their lasers at specific areas that may play a role in decreasing symptoms of nicotine withdrawal and cravings. A similar technique is used to spur weight loss, in which the techs aim instead at the acupuncture points that control the nervous system's hormonal balance.

Dr. Katie Short teaches her patients how healing happens from within. But she does more than talk about it; she demonstrates the body’s ability to recover from a wide range of ailments by performing strictly noninvasive and drug-free techniques. After a thorough consultation and exam, she sets to work stimulating the body’s internal balancing mechanisms with manual spinal adjustments. To round out her services, she works elbow to elbow with licensed acupuncturist Jessie Maxwell. Jessie triggers some of the same healing energies as Dr. Short, but with hair-thin needles instead of adjustments.
