Weight gain can be a hard thing to undo, much like how romance novels with Fabio covers, once picked up, are impossible to put down. Shed unwanted corporeal baggage with today's Groupon: for $749, you get six Zerona weight-loss treatments at Arne Wellness Center Chiropractic Spa in Minnetonka (a $1,569 value).
Arne Wellness Center Chiropractic Spa's resident chiropractor, Dr. Stephen Arne, DC, guides his team of trained laser wielders as they melt away unwanted fat with gentle, FDA-approved Zerona treatments. During 40-minute sessions, patients recline comfortably as the cold laser glides over skinscapes to poke holes in fat-filled adipose cells. The free-floating lipids are then swept away by the body's internal clean-up crew, resulting in slimmer physiques. Like wearing sweatbands and spandex shorts, Zerona treatments are best performed in conjunction with exercise and don't require any downtime.
The team at WellSpa believes the body heals itself; they only facilitate the process with craniosacral therapy, ear candling, and therapeutic massages. This philosophy, and the staff’s nuanced understanding of the human body, earned the center a spot on the USCA’s Best of Minnetonka list for both 2010 and 2011 in the Wellness Programs category. The center's noninvasive services also encompass cold-laser treatments, which can help alleviate conditions such as arthritis, asthma, and a belief that lasers only come out of superheroes’ eyes. Spa owner and UltraSlim laser technician Bessie Lahoz-Arne oversees the treatments, and has done so in the Twin Cities since 2009.
