Body Composition Testing – InBody*

Weight can be misleading when used as an indicator of health. Your body is a complex structure made of different components such as water, fat, and muscle. To thoroughly learn about your body and its condition, take the InBody test. In less than 30 seconds, the InBody will reveal your body fat percentage, muscle distribution, and body water balance. Watch for improvements from exercise and diet and do not let your hard work go to waste. Please call about specific steps to be followed prior to your test.

The MELT Method:
Hand and Foot Treatment

Erase pain and tension in your hands, feet, neck, and low back brought on by everyday stress, overuse, and longevity. The MELT Method will make your whole body feel better by incorporating specific, easy and brief treatments for your overworked hands and feet! The MELT Hand and Foot treatments reduce the negative effects of aging and an active life. They aid in reducing and preventing chronic pain. Using both soft and firm balls we create the effects of hands-on therapy to enhance mind-body awareness, rehydrate connective tissues, and re-balance the nervous system for resilient health and pain-free movement.

Session includes:

Dozens of treatment techniques for hands, feet, arms, face, and neck
1 soft MELT Ball and Bag
The Hand and Foot Rx Guidebook
