Discover the difference with our Weight Loss Program
Here at Body Synergy Wellness Center, we lead the way for Weight Loss in Warrensburg. Dr. Watts does not utilize faddish diets or gimmicks to help patients lose weight. Dr. Watts starts out with a full exam and history to first try and identify if there are any underlying factors that may be preventing the patient from having success in their weight loss journey.
Some patient suffer from underlying physiological disorders that may prevent them from being able to lose weight. Here at Body Synergy Wellness Center, we order blood panels on patients to verify a patients condition and weight are not being impeded by one of these conditions. After an examinations and review of history, the Doctor will determine if blood panels are necessary and which panels should be tested. Some of the panels that may be run on you as a patient might be: Vitamin D, complete Thyroid panel, CMP, hormone panel.
Diet & Lifestyle
At Body Synergy Wellness Center, we offer a complete Weight Loss System that addresses diet, exercise, lifestyle changes, blood chemistry, and nutrition. This is not a one size fits all approach because not everyone is dealing with same weight loss hurdles. This program educates the patient on nutrition and lifestyle choices and teaches the patient how to continue on with a healthy and fit life even when they are done with the weight loss program in our clinic.
Laser lipolysis is a minimally invasive procedure that uses heat from fiber-optic lasers at various wavelengths to melt body fat. This is a different process than liposuction, which involves removing fat from the body using vacuum suction. The added benefit of laser lipolysis is that it spurs the production of the protein collagen, making skin more taut. Clinical results were drawn from the laser lipolysis and liposuction procedures of more than 2,000 patients over a three-year span. Researchers found that patients overall lost significant fat bulk in different parts of the body and saw an increase in skin tightness. Patients didn’t suffer from any major complications, though some complained of minor pain and bruising.
History of the Whole Body Vibration Plate
As a therapy, whole body vibration (WBV) was explored by Russian scientist Vladimir Nazarov, who tested vibration on cosmonauts in an effort to decrease the loss of muscle and bone mass in space. As there is minimal gravitational force in space, muscles and bones are not loaded as they normally are on earth. Cosmonauts (and astronauts) in space lose their muscular strength very quickly (muscle atrophy), which is why they are not able to easily walk when they come back to earth. The decrease of bone density increases the risk of bone fractures, so it’s not safe to stay in space for extended periods. As a result they were forced to return to earth rather quickly.
How does vibration training work?
By exercising on a vibrating, and therefore, unstable surface your muscles are forced to respond in order to regain stability. Your body does this by performing reflexive muscle contractions many times per second.
These contractions must work in multiple directions, because the platform not only moves up and down, but also vibrates from side to side. As you increase the vibration frequency (Hz) or the intensity from high to low your muscles will always be facing a renewed challenged.
Your body is extremely smart, and will always respond to any change or challenge. In fact as health and fitness professionals, it’s one of the principles we apply, and… we’re letting you into a little bit of a trade secret, that the solution to any form of successful physical training is to keep your body guessing by regularly changing the training variables i.e. speed, resistance, tempo or repetitions.
In sport, the new catch phrase is ‘instability training’. The idea is that, the more you keep the body guessing, the more it has to adapt. For example, injured rugby players run around a large sandpit to strengthen weakened muscles, and challenge their balance and coordination reflexes. This would have been unheard of a few years, in fact, it would have been frowned upon! But as sports science learns more about how our bodies function, the more technology can be used to improve it.
So whether you’re aiming to lose weight and look good in your jeans, or you are training to compete in an Iron Man event you will experience significant improvements in strength, tone, shape and power through this form of instability training or vibration training as it is called. And to make it even more exciting you can achieve in 10 minutes what would usually take one hour.
