Our Approach

We begin with a consultation and evaluation to understand what your weight loss goals are. We may recommend some or all of our weight loss services, depending on your needs. Our full range of options includes:

Without getting too technical, semaglutide mimics a hormone in your body that targets areas of your brain that control appetite and food intake. It is a component in diabetes medications that has been found to promote weight loss and fat burning, while also lowering blood sugar.

It is a non-stimulant appetite suppressant that has been shown to improve cardiovascular health and lower A1C numbers.

Semaglutide can be taken in lozenge form, either daily or every other day. It can also be injected once a week. Our medical staff can provide either method, depending on your preference. Most people find that the lozenges allow them to maintain a more steady dosing than the injections. We are contracted with a compounding pharmacy to manufacture the lozenges for us.

Red light therapy uses particular low-level wavelengths of red light that are directed through the skin. These wavelengths are absorbed by the cells, creating a reaction that boosts the energy-producing capability of cells.

Research shows that this low-level light affects the fat-storing cells of the body, reducing their size and causing a measurable loss of fat. It has also been shown to reduce hunger by regulating leptin and ghrelin levels in the body.

Red light may also stimulate the growth of new muscle mass, which helps promote weight loss.

We have a team of physical therapists and personal trainers, as well as our own on-site gym to help you get the appropriate amount and type of exercise you need to help you reach your weight loss goals.

Our physical therapists offer a number of post-workout recovery therapies, including compression pants. These thigh-high pants squeeze the legs and then release, creating a pumping action that helps remove fluid buildup in the legs. They are helpful for fluid retention and diabetes symptoms.

Naturally, your weight loss program will include dietary education and counseling to help you create meals that support your goals while providing you the nutrients you need to be your healthiest.
