What Makes the Med Spa Experience Different?
If you aren’t familiar with a medical spa, think of it as a combination between a traditional medical clinic and a day spa. While a medical spa offers many more clinical services than any day spa would, we at The MediSpa at Life Time Athletic desire to provide a wide range of treatment options in a relaxing atmosphere and safe atmosphere like that of a day spa. One quote that people often use to describe a medical spa is “a place where luxury and medicine meet in the middle.”

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) as Part of our Integrative Medicine Focus
Because aging is not a disease, doctors in the field of traditional medicine don’t know what to do when their patients complain of multiple symptoms of hormone imbalance as a result of the aging process. For women who are experiencing perimenopause, which is the stage of life leading up to menopause that may last several years, the resulting hormonal imbalance can cause problems in many areas of life. While every woman who visits The MediSpa at Life Time Athletic has different symptoms and needs, the following issues are most prevalent in middle-aged females:
- Hot flashes and night sweats
- Rapid mood swings
- Decreased interest in sex
- Chronic fatigue
- Weight gain
Men don’t fare much better when it comes to dealing with the effects of hormonal imbalance. In the decade before he turns 40, the average American man loses up to 10 percent of his testosterone hormones. This can result in symptoms like erectile dysfunction, osteoporosis, and many similar symptoms experienced by women in menopause such as hot flashes and night sweats. What many doctors who practice a disease model fail to realize is that most or all of these issues are traceable to hormones and can be treated with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy.
If you want to learn more about Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy, a physician at The MediSpa at Life Time Athletic will take a blood or saliva test to determine the current functioning of your sex hormones as well as your thyroid hormone and adrenal glands. The doctor utilizes this information in creating a customized Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy that is individualized to correct your specific hormonal issues. Since the main ingredients come from soybean and yam plants and replicate human hormones with amazing consistency, using Hormone Replacement Therapy as a wellness tool is an excellent choice for most patients.
