Studies show that a high percentage of Americans consider themselves overweight, and an even higher percentage believe they are being chased by Frankenstein's monster. Alter self-perceptions with today's Groupon: for $849, you get six Zerona laser body-sculpting treatments at Haas Wellness Center (a $1,995 value).
Haas Wellness’ laser treatments assist clients in achieving a slimmer shape. Shed unsightly cellulite and sculpt torsos with the Zerona laser system, a noninvasive treatment that helps to remove excess fat from the stomach, hips, thighs, buttocks, arms, chin, love handles, and back without the use of liposuction or exorcism. Before treatment, each client participates in a consultation with a Haas Wellness medical professional, who helps determine goals, select desired areas to treat, and suggest future nutritional choices. During each 75-minute procedure, Haas Wellness’ staff uses high-powered lasers to liquefy fat cells, which are then gently and naturally excreted by the body and sent to bed without TV. To facilitate the fat evacuation, Haas Wellness then treats shape shifters to a percussive rolling session that mobilizes released fat, followed by a 25-minute detoxifying foot bath.
Haas Wellness Center
Once an international gymnastics competitor, Ken Haas had to turn away from the tumbling lifestyle after his body began to ache. Sports orthopedists couldn't determine what was wrong, he told Charlotte Today, but a kinesiologist finally helped him through alternative methods—methods that Ken, now Dr. Haas, employs at Haas Wellness Center. Understandably, applied kinesiology remains one of the center's major focuses. This system tests for muscle responses throughout the body, scouting for weaknesses that could indicate treatable conditions. Its techniques can even incorporate teachings from acupuncture and nutrition for a truly holistic approach.
Dr. Haas's other services run the gamut from screenings for environmental toxins to natural weight-loss programs and low-level-laser therapy, a purported pain deterrent. Trigger-point therapy, myofascial-release work, and essential oils all contribute to the center's signature massage, and craniosacral therapy employs extremely gentle touch—no more than the weight of a nickel—to try and relieve imbalanced nervous systems, a more relaxing method than shouting into your ear for your brain to "stay calm!"
