Vitality Worx Clinic Opens in Pensacola

Jul 31, 2020 04:05PM ● By Daralyn Chase

Christine Briggs, an advance practice registered nurse, recently opened Vitality Worx, a Pensacola clinic specializing in the use of hormone therapy and holistic medicine to restore overall vitality and health.  

“We take the time to understand how your body is currently functioning, identify causative and aggravating factors to your symptoms, and guide you accurately to help achieve better health,” Briggs says.

Hormone imbalance symptoms can range from subtle to debilitating, and they are often masked by medications prescribed for anxiety, depression, insomnia, weight gain and other issues, she says. As a certified BioTE hormone therapy practitioner with a certification in peptide therapy from the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine and the International Peptide Society, she helps men and women achieve optimal sexual and thyroid hormone balance to improve energy and vigor. She often combines hormone optimization with peptide therapy as an anti-aging treatment that improves immune function, gut healing and tissue repair.

Briggs is joined at the clinic by naturopathic doctor Ramona Shires, who specializes in medical nutrition therapy, GI repair, chronic pain and inflammation, and oncology support. Shires addresses nutrition, lifestyle, botanicals, vitamins and minerals, hydrotherapy, hypnotherapy and bioenergetics to restore a patient's vitality.  

“Too often we address the symptoms of a disease without looking for the root cause,” she says. “At Vitality Worx, we apply the holistic approach to identify and remove obstacles to healing and recovery, and to facilitate and augment our inherent self-healing process.”

Vitality Worx offers standard lab testing, specialized labs and several genetic labs and sells BioTe and professional-grade nutriceuticals. It also offers complementary therapies, such as the Cryion laser system for laser lipolysis, body sculpting, skin tightening and face, eye and neck lifts; infrared sauna; foot detox baths; and constitutional hydrotherapy. Appointments are available Monday through Thursday.

Location: 4590 Isabella Ingram Dr., Bay Center Ste. B, Pensacola, FL. For appointments or information, call 850-361-8995.
