Body-contouring sessions at The Pittsburgh Aesthetic Laser Lipo Center begin when a technician straps a set of Lapex BCS LaserLipo paddles onto problem areas such as the belly, thighs, or arms. These paddles emit a low-level laser energy that breaks down fat cell membranes over the course of 40 minutes. Next, patients stand on a whole-body vibration platform for 10 minutes to help purge the expelled fatty acids from the body. The clinic staff recommends 8–12 treatments, along with maintaining a healthy diet, active lifestyle, and perfect wink, for optimal results.
Dr. Thomas Kalkstein earned his degree from Palmer College of Chiropractic in 1983. In the decades since his graduation, Dr. Kalkstein has honed a progressive chiropractic method that can render numerous health benefits. He uses spinal adjustments to relive pain, treat injuries, and even fight disease—all without relying on drugs or invasive procedures.
Nearly a quarter of a century of experience has taught Dr. Robb Fishman that chiropractic treatments should involve the muscles as well as the spine. He sees bones and soft tissue as a system that work in tandem, and his gentle spinal adjustments incorporate massage techniques to ease out tension as well as nudge misaligned discs back into place.
Food, stress, blood-sugar levels, wearing a steel hat—any and all of these factors can bring on a massive headache. According to the West Hills Medical Center, 90% of Americans suffer from headaches, and they use a number of resources to identify and combat the cause. Medical care, physical therapy, and chiropractic care combined with a medically administered nerve-blocking nasal spray work in concert to provide immediate relief, and the effects last longer with each subsequent treatment.
This process stands as just one example of West Hills Medical Center’s commitment to helping patients manage and eliminate pain. Consultations can identify the source of muscle aches while guiding patients toward avoiding the problem in the future. Guided by doctors, skilled massage therapists knead deep-seated tension from the back and limbs. At West Hills, a range of advanced equipment, such as ankle-foot orthotics and knee braces, helps clients safeguard their health after they leave the practice. The staff also focuses on beautification as well as rehabilitation with B12 injections designed to burn fat, boost energy, and make all chocolate bars look like mousetraps.
