Hot and cold each have a purpose at Cryo180. During whole-body cryotherapy sessions, patrons are exposed to extremely cold temperatures—somewhere between -238 and -274 degrees Fahrenheit—for just under three minutes. This brief exposure triggers several key reactions throughout the body: it restores some of the skin's natural elasticity, bolsters immune system and metabolic function, and causes the sort of anti-inflammatory response that can alleviate chronic joint pain. On the other end of the temperature spectrum, the studio's private, jade infrared sauna pods shower clients with a combination of near- and far-infrared rays while soft music and soothing aromatherapy help them to relax. These infrared rays deliver heat deep beneath the surface of the skin, improving circulation throughout the body and stimulating collagen production. And, just like with cryotherapy, the sauna sessions can also help relieve aches by triggering an anti-inflammatory response and by literally melting tension so it may be safely mopped away.
Over time, our bodies accumulate environmental toxins in much the same way that uncles accumulate embarrassing jokes. The staff at Cleanse Thyself Purely focuses its effort on alleviating that bodily burden with a selection of detoxifying services.
To remove waste from the lower colon, guests can book appointments for closed-system colonics that last about an hour. Alternatively, ionic footbaths rely on harmless levels of electricity to extract impurities from the body through the soles of the feet. Cleanse Thyself Purely even invites clients to detoxify in its infrared sauna, which eschews traditional radiant heat in favor of penetrating infrared rays. Without heating the ambient air, these sessions illicit a sweat response that reduces toxins while relaxing muscles, relieving pain, and improving circulation.
A licensed psychologist, marriage and family therapist, and clinical hypnotherapist for 35 years, Dr. Harvey G. Davisson puts each component of his education to good use at Diet by Design. His weight-loss programs spur patients toward their fitness goals with unique blends of appetite suppressants, low-calorie diets, and even hypnosis. The prescription HCG system pairs injections of a fat-torching hormone with a special diet calibrated to rapidly shed pounds. Clients can also tighten, tone, and firm using botanical body wraps that help improve skin texture and minimize the appearance of cellulite. Through psychological counseling and hypnotherapy, Dr. Davisson helps patients reshape bad habits, such as eating after the fridge has gone to sleep for the night.
At Davisson Clinic, Dr.
Harvey Davisson and counselor Lisa Davisson plumb the depths of the subconscious during psychological counseling and hypnosis sessions. Each practitioner boasts a separate specialization; Harvey focuses on mitigating the effects of ADD and ADHD, and Lisa spends her time helping kids and adolescents cope with death and divorce. Their hypnosis sessions help patients focus on common goals, such as weight loss (for those looking to shed a few pounds) or smoking cessation (for those who are addicted to making their own barbecue). When it comes to weight loss, treatments don't end with counseling sessions; the clinic actually offers a holistic plan that incorporates hypnosis, personal training, and supplements.
