When you feel better, you look better. And when you look better, you feel better.

While skin treatments and anti-aging techniques can help improve our appearance, it is vital to remember that our bodies are often a reflection of our total health. For example, our skin isn’t just affected by external factors like time and sun exposure — it can also change due to your diet, exercise plan, hormone levels, and genetics. Understanding your total health means understanding how to be and look your best.

Wellness Consultations at the Medical Spa

With over 20 years of experience as a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine, Dr. Pacheco has an intimate understanding of how who we are is intertwined with how we feel – and how diet plans, supplements, preventive medicine, and osteopathic manual medicine can help many people achieve a healthier lifestyle and look.

During a one-on-one consultation with Dr. Pacheco, patients will be interviewed, undergo a focused exam, and receive a suggested treatment plan. This plan could include the following:

Advanced preventative medicine. When it comes to health, wellness, and beauty, preventing issues before they ever surface can be the most effective, not to mention most cost-effective, option. These treatments may delay the appearance of aging and keep patients feeling active and vital.

Osteopathic manual medicine (OMM) treatments. OMM is the skillful use of the hands to diagnose and treat structural and functional concerns in various tissues and organs throughout the body. In addition to physically harmonizing the movement of bones, joints, muscles and other soft tissues, the practice of OMM includes the manual assessment of metabolic function, making it an integral part of complete medical care. OMM is not equivalent to manual therapy, which is used by non-physicians such as physical therapists and bodywork practitioners.

Epigenetic treatment plans. This DNA evaluation of your metabolic blueprint can improve your health by revealing how your body is programed to work as well as what you can do to work with your body.

Medicinal diet plans. If your last diet plan came from a magazine or a friend, you might want to rethink exactly how you are fueling your body. Our medicinal diet plans are research-based, healthy, and safe – and we can monitor and measure your progress.

Bioidentical hormone rebalancing. Both women and men can benefit from correctly balanced hormones, especially as they age. However, traditional, synthetic hormone therapy comes with risks and side-effects that many wish to avoid. Bioidentical hormones are derived from natural sources and are designed to match the unique needs of individuals – two differences that make them the choice for some experiencing menopause or andropause.

Vitamin and mineral assessments. Is your body getting the nourishment that it needs to function optimally? By having your vitamins and minerals assessed, you can discover and correct deficiencies that may be affecting your health, wellbeing, and energy.
