EHC’s 5th Anniversary

Greetings and Salutations!!

It is very exciting to know that EHC is reaching a milestone anniversary, FIVE YEARS! This milestone anniversary is often representative of wood as it symbolizes stability and strength…it represents strong roots. This is representative of EHC in other ways as well as getting to the root cause of symptoms has been part of the directive in helping patients become empowered.

Last year I was able to share with you all on how I have felt EHC to be similar to a child, watching and experiencing each stage of growth. As we now begin to reach a state of more stability than previous years and a recognition that new challenges await with further growth. Over the years I have been able to observe and see what ways patients’ needs have been met by EHC in addition to being aware of aspects of health that have been necessary to address and acquiring tools in order to do so.

Just as you all have been part of EHC’s growth and development it is humbling to say myself and EHC have been part of momentous stages in many of your lives.

It has been beautiful to see some patients prepare for pregnancy, others becoming pregnant and then seeing their new addition to the family arrive. Unfortunately others find themselves on the flip side where pregnancy is not possible for various reasons. Those going through menopause have their own set of unique challenges as well.

Although I have been able to address some of these concerns with the tools available, I have sought out additional instruments to bring to EHC to ensure I can bring greater chances of symptom relief for many during the physical changes they are experiencing.

The stages in life that were mentioned come with both physical and hormonal changes that weaken pelvic floor muscles in addition to changes in the vaginal wall. The Exion device, when using the intimate applicator, provides 360°radio frequency energy that will allow increased local circulation for the relief of vaginal and/or pelvic pain, muscle spasms while also tightening internal and external vaginal muscles. This goes beyond addressing urinary incontinence and sexual wellness but rather general well-being to prevent you from avoiding activities that you enjoy.

The Exion device goes beyond women’s health and has something for everyone. With the body applicator the combination of radio frequency with targeted ultrasound helps improve hyaluronic acid and improve skin laxity while also allowing volume reduction in hard to reach/treat places and/or stubborn fat bulges below the buttocks, upper thighs and back. 

The face applicator has the same functions that the body applicator has but targets more delicate areas on the face and neck. A concern for many, male and female, is the implications of saggy jowls that come with natural aging and weight gain; although the aesthetic may be enough for some to consider non-surgical solutions, the effect on general well being with sleep and snoring is worth considering.

The last applicator of the Exion is one that is a revolutionary skin solution, the fractional radio frequency applicator that allows microneedling for the face and body. Using the latest technology of AI, optimal delivery of thermal energy that ensures impact in a single pass, allowing deeper layers of the skin to be treated without physically puncturing the dermis and allowing for a less painful experience when compared to the traditional microneedling options available in the current market. As a result significant improvement in skin pores, texture, wrinkles, and scars can be achieved.

The other device that is just as exciting and impressive as the Exion is the EMface! It is the first therapy that works on the framework of the face from the inside out. EMface treatments are the natural alternatives to Botox and fillers but if both are being done already, it can further complement and enhance them.

The main drawback to dermal fillers and anti-wrinkle injections is that the results are not permanent and require frequent maintenance treatments and never stimulating your own body’s ability to stimulate collagen and elastin production while also strengthening your facial muscles.

However, the EMface is able to achieve just that! For that reason, those that have experienced Bell’s Palsy, sequelae of strokes and/or muscle wasting conditions may be able to find a solution with the EMface in regaining some of their facial muscle function that had been lost – and it is this patient population that had me recognize how the EMface can benefit many on a functional level.

The Exion is a powerful device that I am proud to introduce to EHC for its 5th anniversary as the uses are vast, literally from head to toe for EVERY body! The EMface is a perfect pair with the Exion when bringing natural alternatives to facial rejuvenation.

Celebrating EHC’s 5th anniversary is being done by bringing on additional solutions for patients’ concerns to ensure you can continue to do the things you love to do when you are feeling your best! I appreciate your trust in allowing me to be part of your journey to optimal wellness! 

As a thank you for allowing EHC to continue to thrive, a supplement sale for 25% is being launched on your favorite platforms, FullScript and Wellevate, until the end of August! Please keep an eye out for when we launch the Early Bird specials for services being done with the Exion and EMface devices!!

Once again, thank you for your support on behalf of me and the EHC staff!!

In Good Health,

Dr. Carmel Ferreira, NMD, LAc



Pioneer Day

Pioneer Day is a state holiday in Utah in the United States. It is celebrated on July 24 each year to commemorate the entry of Brigham Young and the first group of Mormon pioneers into Utah’s Salt Lake Valley in 1847. This day celebrates the bravery of the original settlers and their strength of character and physical endurance.


This day commemorates the entry of Brigham Young and the first group of Mormon pioneers into Utah’s Salt Lake Valley on July 24, 1847. The Mormon pioneers viewed their arrival as the founding of a Mormon homeland, hence Pioneer Day. The Mormons, as they were commonly known, left their settlement in Nauvoo, Illinois, and journeyed west seeking refuge from religious persecution.

Determined to settle in an isolated region, the pioneers made their way across the plains and over the Rocky Mountains to Utah. They lost many of their party to disease during the winter months. By the time that they reached Utah, the desolate valley was a welcome sight. Potatoes and turnips were soon planted, and a dam was built. With solemn ceremonies, the settlers consecrated the two-square-mile city, and sent back word that the “promised land” was found. By the end of 1847, nearly 2000 Mormons settled in the Salt Lake Valley. The first Pioneer Day was celebrated in 1849 with a parade, band music and speeches. In modern times July 24 is celebrated annually as Pioneer Day, a state holiday, in Utah.

What Do People Do?

Pioneer Day activities include fireworks, parades, picnics, rodeos and other festivities throughout the state. Some people say that this day is celebrated in Utah with more zeal and pride than major holidays such as Christmas. Children take part in essay contests and projects about pioneers, while families enjoy the day with concerts and festivals. For the parades, some people may wear costumes that resemble clothes worn during the 19th century when Salt Lake Valley was founded.

Pioneer Day is also celebrated in many parts of Idaho, where it is commonly known as Celebration Day. Family reunions are popular on or around July 24.
