Stretch Zone mixes up humdrum fitness regimes with a new type of workout, one that can enhance physical performance, muscle symmetry, and flexibility. It consists of table stretching—but not the kind that you're probably familiar with. By working with the autonomic nervous system, Stretch Zone practitioners take muscle extension to a whole new level. Atop their specially designed tables, comfortable straps systematically position, stabilize, and isolate the parts of the body that are not being stretched. This allows the stretched muscle—and the person on the table—to completely relax, extending further than the central nervous system would normally permit. Besides helping rejuvenate and invigorate the whole body, the sessions can also alleviate rheumatic pain for everyone from seniors to adults.
Dr. Yelena Pakula practiced as a medical doctor in Russia before changing fields and continents more than a decade ago. Now an acupuncturist licensed by the state of Florida, she runs Vita-Health Acupuncture & Wellness Center, a clinic for nonconventional healing and aesthetic medicine. She and her colleagues?including another expatriate physician from Brazil?perform acupuncture and herbal treatments, along with massage therapy and colon hydrotherapy. Their beauty menu includes treatments to laser away body hair, contour the thighs and stomach, and rejuvenate complexions after one too many ghost sightings.
Under the supervision of a physician, the technicians at Sunrise Laser & Hormone Institute beautify bodies with a variety of noninvasive, high-tech services. They remove hair from virtually any skin type with the Alma Soprano laser, whose cooling mechanism keeps skin surfaces so comfortable that many patients compare the treatment to a hot-stone massage. To reduce sagging skin, the Alma Soprano also uses true laser technology to tighten skin in the arms, neck, face, and stomach. To reduce cellulite and wrinkles caused by attempting to spell kohlrabi, staff members call on the radio frequency and magnetic pulses of non-invasive systems. Their service menu also includes laser body-slimming treatments and bioidentical hormone-replacement therapy, along with body contouring, chemical peels, and facials.
