To help clients combat weight problems, Westport Chiropractic offers noninvasive Lipo Light body-contouring treatments. These use light and heat energy to shrink fat cells and boost collagen and elastin production, which results in lost inches and smoother, tighter skin.

Shalva Clinic's name comes from the Hebrew word for "peace" or "serenity." That's the feeling naturopathic doctor Ellen Lewis hopes to inspire at her practice, and she hopes clients will take that feeling home with them. That's because Shalva, she says, refers not only to her clinic's environment but also to the feeling of peace and balance that results from her treatments. Lewis's noninvasive, holistic treatments include reiki and detoxification programs.
