Niagara Gazette — Each treatment in the series is 40 minutes and Mokhiber noted payment plans are offered. In addition, she has put out special offers on Groupon, the online coupon system. She estimates she got 50 percent of her clients from Groupon since she opened in January.
Mokhiber said she was trained in the program with Dr. Jams Fettig, a North Dakota chiropractor and author of “The Creator’s Manual for Your Body.”
Catherine Stack, RN, doctor of naturopathic medicine and owner of Journey II Health on Porter Road (also a Gazette columnist who appears today on Page 1C), has hosted Mokhiber’s nutrition business at her center in the past and believes Mokhiber is a positive addition to the center.
“I like how she incorporates nutrition with what she does,” Stack said. “And it seems people are dropping inches.”
Custode, who signed up for a second series of nine treatments, said she is happy with the 14 inches she has lost — in total — from her body measurements. She has signed up for more sessions.
“If I didn’t think it worked, I certainly wouldn’t have signed up for another series of treatments,” said Custode, who also follows a diet called the “Blood Type Diet,” which both Mokhiber and Stack recommend. The blood type diet recommends different types of foods, depending on the blood type.
Custode said that her blood type, Type O, responds better to a diet that includes red meat and so, after a lifetime of avoiding red meat, she has happily included it in her weight loss regimen.
Custode continues to work out about five times a week, but now she feels she is finally seeing results from her efforts.
“I was killing myself at the gym and the pounds wouldn’t come off,” she said, adding the sessions with Mokhiber, about three times a week, have helped her lose a total of ten pounds.
“I’m not really seeing the pounds come off, but I’m seeing inches come off,” she said.
