New Dr. Sears wellness centre in Florida to combine ancient remedies with latest anti-ageing technology

By

The Sears Institute for Anti-Aging Medicine, a 17,000sq ft (1,579sq m) facility in Royal Palm Beach, Florida, opened recently within The Sears Wellness Center.

The Sears Institute for Anti-Aging Medicine is a wellness centre rather than a traditional spa, said sustainable spa development president Alison Howland, the consultant who worked on the project. The centre is the brainchild of anti-ageing pioneer Dr. Al Sears, who is also a charter member of the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine and a prolific author.

The Sears Institute for Anti-Aging Medicine uses a blend of Western science, anti-ageing technology and ancient healing remedies, including telomere testing, bio-hormone replacement therapy, nutrient IV therapy, thyroid therapy, chelation therapy, platelet-rich plasma therapy, detoxification therapy, hyperbaric oxygen and stem cell therapy.

Each client first receives a consultation and on-the-spot lab work, before procedures and recommendations are decided.

“This is really about anti-ageing medicine,” Howland told Spa Opportunities. “It does offer what people are asking for, such as Botox and other injections, but that’s not the major focus.”

The centre includes a consultation room, on-site sterile lab, two hyperbaric chambers, a procedure room, relaxation room, two advanced aesthetics rooms, two advanced bodywork rooms, a therapy room, a P.A.C.E. fitness room and yoga room and a steam/shower room.

The facility is a stand-alone building, located on a lake and surrounded by palm trees and native flora.

“The interior of the facility is based on the vision of Dr. Sears: honouring the medical aspect, complemented with high-level luxury, integrated with the soothing aspect of nature, through aquariums positioned in various areas of the facility,” said Howland.

The centre uses products developed by Dr. Sears, including Pure Radiance Skin Care and Supplements and Primal Force Supplements. Linens are by The Madison Collection.

“Dr. Sears didn’t want people to feel too clinical – he wanted the experience to be much more human,” added Howland. “Especially for things like the hyperbaric chambers, we wanted to do it so patients feel very comfortable. We needed luxurious linens for that, and they needed to be 100 per cent cotton. People coming through for the tours have been blown away by the beauty of the hyperbaric chamber.”
