If you've tried losing weight and haven't had much success despite dedicating time and money to the problem, you're probably skeptical about trusting a weight loss clinic like Cryo & Contour. You're absolutely right to think that way - many modern diets and weight loss programs are nothing more than quick fixes for weight loss problems that can't be solved overnight.
Fortunately, our weight loss program is different from the rest and designed with you in mind. Our medical weight loss program is a safe and effective way to improve your overall health and maintain a healthy weight in the long term without the need for surgery.
Developed by our medical director, Dr. Lorina Poe, MD., our medical weight loss plans start with a comprehensive analysis tailored to you, your body, and your goals. We start with a detailed wellness exam, blood work, body composition analysis, and resting metabolic rate testing to truly understand you and your body. We then use this detailed information to develop a weight loss plan that is personalized to help you lose weight and meet your fitness goals. For the best results, we like to work with your primary care physician and other medical specialists as necessary to ensure a healthy, progressive continuity of care.
The duration of your weight loss program is determined by weight loss goals specific to you and includes
If you're looking for a partner to help you achieve healthy weight loss in Thompsons Station, TN, Cryo & Contour is the weight loss clinic for you. Unlike other medical weight loss programs, ours was founded upon the power of science with the caring and personalized support of our medical weight loss team.
This initial phase of your weight loss journey starts with blood pressure and weight checks, EKG monitoring for every 50 lbs. lost, lab tests conducted monthly, ongoing nutrition education, weekly nurse visits, and monthly physician visits.
This intermediate phase starts when you have achieved your target weight. At this point, we introduce more foods from the grocery store that you can eat. By the end of this phase, all meal replacements are eliminated from your diet and replaced with other foods.
This phase is crucial and meant to help you keep all that weight off that you have worked so hard to lose. We incorporate S.T.A.R. steps to accomplish this goal, which is a 24-week program designed to help you maintain your new healthy weight.
One of the most common questions we get at our medical weight loss office is who our program benefits most. That's not the easiest question to answer since every person's body and weight loss goals will be different from the next person's. However, we have found that professional, supervised medical weight loss can be hugely beneficial for a range of different people, including:
Shedding some pounds can lead to an overall improvement in health, a lower likelihood of developing chronic diseases, and an increase in energy levels for individuals struggling with weight issues.
Losing extra pounds can have a positive impact on one's well-being and alleviate the effects of conditions such as type II diabetes, high blood pressure, and sleep apnea.
Losing weight can reduce the pressure on joints, which can help reduce pain and improve mobility for people with a limited range of motion or joint pain due to being overweight.
Now that you know a little bit more about our weight loss program and its underlying principles, let's take a closer look at some of the key tools that our physicians use to expedite healthy, long-lasting weight loss.
If you're looking for a way to potentially lose weight, improve muscle recovery, overcome mood and sleep disorders, promote injury healing, and solve joint pain, cryotherapy could be a great addition to your weight loss plan. During each cryotherapy session, you'll step into a chamber and experience extreme cold for just three minutes. Some people have reported burning up to 800 calories during a session. Keep in mind that cryotherapy doesn't cure any specific illnesses, but it might be helpful for those who suffer from conditions like fibromyalgia, lupus, arthritis, and ankylosing spondylitis.
Excellent Supplement to Your Weight Loss Plan with Cryo & Contour
Relief from Pain, Swelling, Inflammation, and Muscle Spasticity
Helps Boost Adrenaline, cortisol, and Dopamine to Fight Pain, Hunger, and Fatigue
Jumpstarts Your Metabolism and Immune System Response to Illness
Are you curious about what happens during a typical cryotherapy session from Cryo & Contour? It starts with the first of three phases, which take place during a three-minute exposure to temperatures below zero.
When the body is exposed to cold temperatures, it undergoes a series of physiological changes to help maintain its core temperature. One of these changes is the constriction of blood vessels on the skin's surface and muscles, which forces blood away from the peripheral tissues towards the core. Once in the core, the blood can be filtered through the body's natural filtration system, which works to remove toxins and inflammatory components from the blood.
This process not only helps to keep the body warm but also helps to keep it healthy by eliminating harmful substances that can cause damage to cells and tissues. Additionally, the constriction of blood vessels can help to reduce swelling and inflammation in the peripheral tissues, which can be especially beneficial for those with conditions such as arthritis or joint pain.
After leaving the chamber, blood circulates to the body's outer tissues, which are now supplied with oxygen and nutrients. This circulation naturally warms the muscles and skin, allowing for increased flexibility and range of motion.
Within a period of 2 days, individuals experience a significant improvement in their physical condition. They have reported enhanced quality of sleep, heightened levels of energy, and faster recovery periods after injuries or exercising.
Looking for a cutting-edge way to enhance your physique? It might be time for you to consider Emsculpt, a body sculpting treatment that uses electromagnetic pulses to build muscle and burn fat. By stimulating muscle contractions, this innovative procedure can help your body generate new muscle fibers and proteins while reducing unwanted fat cells.
The short answer to this question is yes, it absolutely is safe. In fact, this procedure is a non-invasive, FDA-approved body sculpting treatment that uses the power of electromagnetism to tighten muscles and burn fat in areas where pockets of body fat typically collect, like the belly and the thighs.Request Appointment
For those who are struggling with stubborn pockets of fat that won't budge even with diet and exercise, Emsculpt offers a permanent solution. This treatment is most effective for individuals who are close to their target weight and looking for a way to destroy targeted fat cells. The muscle mass created by Emsculpt can last for at least six months or more, provided that patients continue to engage in strength and conditioning exercises to build muscle.Request Appointment
Emsculpt treatments can provide an incredible workout for muscles that would be difficult to achieve through traditional gym exercises. Within just 30 minutes, the treatment can generate an impressive 20,000 muscular contractions. For instance, if the treatment targets the abdominal muscles, it can be compared to performing 20,000 crunches in half an hour.
Emsculpt not only strengthens muscle fibers but also releases epinephrine, a naturally occurring chemical in the body that prompts nearby fat cells to break down. This is a significant development because fat cells are notoriously difficult to eliminate. Contact Cryo & Contour today to learn more about Emsculpt and whether this revolutionary weight loss tool is appropriate for you and your body.Request Appointment
The Verju laser system is a remarkable innovation in the field of non-invasive treatments. In fact, it's the only FDA-approved green laser that is both safe and effective in fat loss and the reduction of cellulite. One of the key advantages of this laser is that its low-level frequency ensures that there is no possibility of injury. Moreover, unlike liposuction or other hands-on treatments, there are no devices that push up against your skin during the procedure. Patients simply lay underneath the Verju lights and let the machine do the rest.
Individuals looking to lose weight with a medical weight loss program often benefit most from treatments like Verju. Why? Because Verju is very effective at eliminating stubborn fat from problematic areas such as your thighs, arms, and waist.
At the treatment sites, subcutaneous fat cells tend to collapse, leading to a thinner body shape for stubborn areas like hips, thighs, and lower abdomen. Based on the research, the average client can lose up to 4 inches over the hips and waist within just two weeks, and the results can be maintained for more than five months. Verju is a unique contouring system that does not damage the fat cells, thereby creating a more natural biological response for losing inches.
Unlike other branded treatments, Verju's green diode system increases the collagen concentration in the dermal layer and remodels collagen within the fibrotic septae. This puts Verju ahead of others when it comes to circumferential and cellulite reduction. Moreover, other modalities have been shown to permanently damage fat cells, leading to asymmetric weight regain in the shoulders, knees, and other unwanted areas.
This treatment is becoming increasingly popular for healthy medical weight loss because it allows you to relax and decompress while it works. Each treatment, which takes about 15 minutes to complete, provides you with a slight warming sensation that is soothing and gentle. This treatment not only feels great, but it's also incredibly convenient and doesn't require any recovery time.
FlexSure technology is a safe and effective treatment for all skin types, with no restrictions based on your body mass index (BMI). It offers multiple applicator sizes, which ensures that the treatment is tailored to your body shape and size for optimal results. Unlike other treatments, FlexSure does not cut or damage the skin, which eliminates concerns about scarring or infection. Additionally, it is a great option for those with darker skin tones, as it does not pose a risk of discoloration or burns.
If you are self-conscious about areas of skin laxity or have problem fat zones that you would like to tone and slim, FlexSure may be the right choice for you. At Cryo & Contour, our knowledgeable and caring medical staff is here to help you achieve your body-reshaping goals, so don't hesitate to reach out to us for more info on FlexSure and our medical weight loss plans.
FlexSure is a highly effective radio-frequency body treatment that's designed to deliver deep and even tissue heating. The peel-and-stick applicator is strategically curved and contoured to comfortably adapt to your body shape, making it easier to target those hard-to-treat areas. Some of the most common areas that our patients treat include:
Our medical weight loss program benefits greatly from FlexSure's use of monopolar technology, which can reach deep into the skin layers and underlying subcutaneous fat. When the temperature reaches over 42 degrees, the fat cells undergo apoptosis or cell death. The lymphatic system will then naturally clear away the debris left by the destroyed fat cells.
Since patients receive the dual benefit of fat reduction as well as skin tightening, FlexSure is often seen as a fantastic total body contouring, slimming, and toning system.
Are you tired of feeling trapped in a body you dislike? The team at Cryo & Contour, led by Dr. Lorina Poe, can help you achieve long-term weight loss success. If you're ready to live a healthier life free from obesity, our doctors and nutritionists are here to guide you every step of the way.

Golf fans in Middle Tennessee got excited a few years back when a land developer announced a Tiger Woods-designed 18-hole golf course would be part of a planned residential project in Williamson County.
Not long after the announcement, Woods visited the 2,000-acre site where the resort-style community was to be built and liked what he saw.
Before Woods' visit in March 2016, however, opposition to the project named Two Farms at Thompson's Station was starting to grow.
That was seven years ago, and if you hit a golf ball today in the area where the development was designated you'd spend the rest of the day trying to find it.
Question: Whatever happened to the Two Farms project at Thompson's Station and its Tigers Woods-designed golf course?
Answer: It never got off the tee. From the start, the project was met with resistance from the area's residents. The blowback started small but grew much greater before the project eventually was abandoned.
The opposition resulted in the creation of a Facebook page titled Two Farms Equals One Nightmare.
For his part, Woods let it be known his company would make an effort to design a golf course that would be aesthetically pleasing and blend with the local scenery.
"(Woods) talks about preservation of the way the land looks today. He's looking to take the character of the land today and enhance it," Beacon Land Development President Mike Abbot said at the time.
Still, Two Farms raised questions from the Heritage Foundation, which works to preserve communities and cultural heritage in Williamson County. The foundation's CEO Bari Beasley told the Thompson's Station Board of Mayor and Aldermen that Two Farms would have a "profound impact" on the area's character.
The late country music artist Naomi Judd and former Franklin vice mayor Pamela Lewis were also among those who spoke out against the project.
Along with opposition from local residents, the project faced issues with water supply, wastewater treatment and development density near Coleman Road.
The water issues put the golf course in limbo.
Beacon Land Development had partnered with Discovery Land Co. out of Scottsdale, Arizona, in an effort to get the project under way in 2017. Discovery, however, backed out, citing lack of a water source in the area for the golf course.
"Unfortunately, we didn't find the ground water needed for the golf course and are not able to move forward. Please withdraw the request," Discovery Land Development president Tom Collopy said in an email sent to then-Thompson's Station town planner Wendy Deats.
While a Tiger Woods designed golf course won't be coming to the area anytime soon, a Woods-backed PopStroke putting and dining venue announced plans recently for 13 new locations, including Antioch in the Century Farms development.
The new venues will open in 2023 and 2024.
Each venue features two 18-hole putting courses, one inside and one outside, created by Woods and his TGR Design team. It also has a restaurant and bar, indoor and outdoor dining areas, other outdoor games and playgrounds.
Balls and rental putters will be provided for customers.

Despite being only 18-years-old, Thompson’s Station resident Elijah Browning has already achieved many things not only on the popular game show “American Ninja Warrior,” but also in the community.
Browning was drawn to “Ninja Warrior” ever since beginning to watch it with his friends as a kid. He was fascinated with the show because it was unique at the time, which inspired him to want to try it for himself.
“Growing up, I had it in the back of my mind,” he said. “I would climb trees and play on playgrounds, and pretend I was some of the big Ninja Warriors.”
After training at a gym coached by 10-time ninja veteran and Franklin native Travis Rosen, Browning finished in the top 16 of “American Ninja Warrior Junior” at just 13. His success at the junior level led to him getting a phone call from Matt Iseman, the co-host of the main show, telling him the show lowered the age limit and that they wanted him to compete.
His debut on the show was postponed a year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but during his rookie season, he finished one obstacle short of stage three of the national finals, placing him ninth overall out of 400 competitors.
In between seasons 13 and 14, which were his first two years on the show, Browning spent time training and building a course on the farm of veteran ninja Lance Pekus in Idaho.
“We all chipped in and built him a ninja course, which was super cool because Lance is one of those guys I’ve looked up to for so long,” Browning said.
Browning, who is nicknamed “The Boss Ninja” while on the course, has ventured into entrepreneurship in his spare time. For example, he runs a business called Boss Sports Cards where he buys and sells football and basketball cards, which made “pretty good money” during the pandemic, he said.
For nearly a decade, Browning has volunteered regularly at a charity known as Both Hands, a nonprofit that benefits both widows and adopting families. He and his friends raised almost $30,000 to help with the adoption of his sister, and ever since then, he remains a big supporter of the organization.
“Ever since then, and since I started running some pretty successful businesses, I just feel like God called me to give back,” he said. “I’ve served at a few Both Hands projects, and then I donate a percent of everything I earn to help the cause, because I just believe in it so much.”
Both Hands is not the only community effort Browning has helped with that is personal to him. In May 2022, he hosted an inclusive ninja workshop at We Rock the Spectrum in Franklin, bringing in over 80 kids to partake in obstacle courses.
Browning believes that even through his success on “American Ninja Warrior,” he has always been called to help people that are less fortunate than him.
“Let’s be real, I’ve definitely been given some incredible gifts, and my parents are so supportive, so I love helping those that aren’t as fortunate,” he said.
The semifinals of American Ninja Warrior, featuring Browning and many other skilled competitors, began airing Monday on NBC.

The more than a 150-year-old town of Thompson’s Station, with a population of about 8,000 people, doesn’t have a liquor store. Among the fast-growing Williamson County municipalities, it was an anomaly.
That all changed on Nov. 8 when voters overwhelmingly chose to allow a liquor store in the town with nearly 80 percent of the vote.
The process started when Steve Poe, owner of a Franklin liquor store and a real estate agent, saw an opportunity at the Tollgate Village subdivision in Thompson’s Station.

He secured a lease for a property, ready to start stocking shelves.
One problem: The city wasn’t authorized to sell alcoholic beverages for consumption off-premise.
Poe needed to collect enough signatures from residents who approved of a liquor store to put a referendum on the November ballot.
Poe said he contacted the homeowners association leaders in the Bridgemore, Tollgate, and Canterbury neighborhoods and was given permission to set up a table at the neighborhood pools, seeking signatures.
Williamson County business news:Tourism recovery, broadband and a new-look coffee shop
“We had to get 10 percent of registered voters of Thompson's Station that voted in the last election which was roughly 2,900, so easy math gave us roughly 290 signatures needed to collect,” Poe said. “I got the HOA approvals and met a lot of fantastic people in the process.”
After submitting the signatures to the Williamson County Election Commission, Poe began a campaigning process.
“The rest is history,” he said.
Poe, who owns Westside Wine and Spirits in the Westhaven subdivision, said the next steps are licensing and construction with a target open date of fall next year for the Thompson’s Station store. The name will be Tollgate Wine and Spirits.
“We will be working with Thompsons Station leadership through this process,” Poe said.
