World-Class Care

Aging is a natural part of life -- but it doesn’t mean you can’t age gracefully. At aNu Aesthetics™ and Optimal Wellness and Optimal Wellness, Dr. Cristyn Watkins and and her advanced medical team offer wellness medicine and age management therapies to help men and women stay younger, healthier, and happier.

As a holistic form of medicine, wellness theraanupies offer a number of benefits like preventing diseases, increasing energy levels, and assisting with weight loss.

Since 2011, Dr. Watkins has provided wellness therapies to countless people. aNu Aesthetics™ and Optimal Wellness believes that healing should be tailored to the patient, as no two humans are the same in nutritional status, metabolism, exercise tolerance, or chronic disease predisposition.

Our customized treatment options are tailored to meet your needs individually, for an optimal anti-aging and regenerative lifestyle.

What Is Wellness Medicine:

The Core of aNu Aesthetics™ and Optimal Wellness

Wellness medicine at aNu Aesthetics™ and Optimal Wellness combines two schools of thought - personalized (or precision) medicine and functional medicine - for a holistic perspective.

Functional Medicine:

Functional medicine shifts away from the traditional focus on disease. Instead of addressing an isolated set of symptoms, it aims to address the whole person and the underlying causes of disease. With functional medicine, we ask ourselves the question, "Why has an illness occurred and why is the patient feeling ill?" to best understand the personalized approach needed to truly complement the patient and their lifestyle and habits.

Personalized (Precision) Medicine:

We heavily focus on your individual and overall condition to determine the best way to bring you to maximum health. Personalized (Precision) medicine rolls together a holistic understanding of the person's hormones, autoimmune system, weight, environmental toxins, neurology, existing pain, and any other conditions they may have, to create a truly precise treatment plan.

The aNu Aesthetics™ and Optimal Wellness philosophy has the patient at the center. In order to ensure overall health, both the mind and body have to be balanced.

We take a holistic look at all factors which may cause imbalances in the body, such as bacteria, inflammation, toxins, viruses, anxiety, poor nutrition, or lack of sleep.

Depending on what our board-certified physicians or advanced medical providers find, we’ll create a treatment plan with the best, scientifically-proven therapies from Western and Eastern medicine to see which ones you respond best to. As the therapies progress, our medical staff will closely monitor their progress and adjust the protocol as needed.

Our Wellness Services

Men and women who are looking for ways to rejuvenate their bodies would benefit from the number of health-related services we offer at aNu Aesthetics™ and Optimal Wellness. Some of our top picks are:

Male and Female Rejuvenation:

The gradual loss of sexual pleasure and comfort can be a huge problem for both men and women. Aging, stress, and other factors can slowly take away the body’s natural ability to express itself sexually, which is why we offer both male and female rejuvenation treatments. ThermiVa uses radiofrequency energy to heat tissue in the area and rebuild lost collagen, while P-Shot gives men the renewed stamina and sensitivity they need.

IV Nutritional Therapy:

Dehydration can prevent your body from performing crucial cognitive and physical functions. Nourishing IV therapies are a quick and easy way to replenish your supply of essential nutrients, vitamins, amino acids and antioxidants.

Medical Weight Loss:

Without proper medical guidance, shedding pounds can be difficult to get right. Our board-certified advanced medical providers at aNu Aesthetics™ and Optimal Wellness can create a safe and effective, custom-designed weight loss program to support you. With our world-class nutrition, exercise, and behavior modification plans, you can expect to see long-lasting results and a healthy body.

Hormone Therapy:

When our hormones are at optimal levels, all body functions are healthy. However, hormone levels tend to decline with age and cause mental or physical deterioration. Supplement your natural hormones through a carefully calibrated replacement protocol and bring your body back to its peak condition.

Float Pod:

Much like a sensory deprivation tank, a float pod is perfect for relaxation as you remain buoyant in 10 inches of a special water and Epsom salt solution. For 60 - 90 minutes, staying in a float pod can lower levels of stress, manage pain symptoms, and increase levels of ‘happy’ brain chemicals.

Far Infrared Sauna:

Infrared saunas target your core body temperature through electromagnetic radiation from warming infrared lamps. As the heat penetrates through you, it heals deep tissues, relieves pain, promotes weight loss, and lets the body release toxins through your pores.
