CLARKSBURG, W.Va. - WBOY employees recently wrapped up the Get Git for the 2018 Winter Olympics competition with Tuscan Sun Spa and Salon.
Participants lost a combined weight of 164.2 pounds.
Tuscan Sun Spa's Cheri Satterfield said a smaller number on the scale isn't the only benefit.
"The average weight loss was over 20 pounds, so it tells everyone that you can do it, too, and we just talk with people in the hallway and they were so happy. And they said they felt better, they woke up easy in the morning, their energy level was great, they didn't need to feel bloated, and they felt healthy and they wanted to continue. And that's the best success that we can have," Satterfield said.
Everyone who participated lost at least four percent of their body weight.
CLARKSBURG, W.Va - Since 2014, technicians at Tuscan Sun Spa and Salon have performed thousands of Cool Sculpting treatments.
"Cool Sculpting is an FDA-approved way to reduce pockets of fat in various areas of the body. So that's what we're really looking to do - sculpt people's bodies and give them the look they're actually wanting," said Jill Sloboda of Tuscan Sun Spa and Salon.
It requires multiple treatments in certain areas and only takes 35 minutes per session.
"Abdomen, flanks, inner and outer thighs, those are the most popular areas," said Sloboda.
CLARKSBURG, W.Va - Lose weight while cutting down on your trips to the grocery store - for many people, it's pretty "ideal!"
Tuscan Sun Spa and Salon said one of its programs helps you do just that, and it's easy as 1-2-3-4! Ideal Protein is a medically-designed partial meal-replacement program.
"If you need to lose 10 pounds before a big event or lose 100 pounds, we get you in a fat-burning state, but with the ideal amount of protein, we actually protect muscle mass as well," said Kristen Cooley of Tuscan Sun Spa and Salon. "The typical person on the Ideal Protein protocol will consume three Ideal Protein products a day, plus a real meal at the end of the day. You'll have a whole protein and two cups of select vegetables."

"Hormones are very much like the oil in your car's engine. It touches everything. Your hormones in your body are the same way. So, if the oil is low in your car, you'll probably have engine damage - same thing in your body," said Jann Foley, nurse practitioner and certified nurse midwife at Tuscan Sun Spa and Salon.
That's why Foley said her team uses hormones, specifically bioidentical testosterone, to rebalance your levels.
"In your 40s, your hormone level tends to rapidly decrease, in men and in women. Some of the symptoms you might experience include fatigue, decreased muscle strength, decreased sexuality..." said Foley.
Hormone pelleting has been around since the 1970s, according to Foley. The procedure usually takes 20 to 30 minutes
“The thing I’m most happy about, that I’ve seen since I started the spas 10 years ago, are that people are now looking at taking care of themselves as wellness instead of something froufrou and not needed,” she said. “When I first started, it was a real education and it’s still an education in West Virginia for people to allow themselves to take care of themselves.
“West Virginians, we come from a background of hardworking people that feel that if we do something for ourselves that it’s like we’re doing something wrong,” Satterfield elaborated. “I get it. I understand that mentality. Especially women think if we do something nice for ourselves it’s wrong.
“West Virginians are beginning to think, ‘How do we stay in shape? How do we keep our bodies healthy?’ I think the trend will be you’re going to see more people saying, ‘This isn’t a treat. This is a necessity. It’s not just about the looks. If we’re not healthy, we’re not going to live long.’
