Tuscan Sun Spa and Salon: Hormone Pelleting


If you’re looking to improve your strength, mental acuity, and energy levels – and lose some weight in the process – Tuscan Sun Spa and Salon says it has the product for you!

“Hormones are very much like the oil in your car’s engine.  It touches everything.  Your hormones in your body are the same way.  So, if the oil is low in your car, you’ll probably have engine damage – same thing in your body,” said Jann Foley, nurse practitioner and certified nurse midwife at Tuscan Sun Spa and Salon.

That’s why Foley said her team uses hormones, specifically bioidentical testosterone, to rebalance your levels.

“In your 40s, your hormone level tends to rapidly decrease, in men and in women.  Some of the symptoms you might experience include fatigue, decreased muscle strength, decreased sexuality…” said Foley.

Hormone pelleting has been around since the 1970s, according to Foley.  The procedure usually takes 20 to 30 minutes.

“I cleanse the area, which is usually on the hip.  The only thing you will feel is the pinch of the needle and the burning sensation of the Lidocaine as it goes in, but then you’re numb from then on.  The pellet is the size of a Tic Tac, a little better.  For women, we put in one pellet or two, and men get six pellets,” said Foley.

Foley said many people who try it keep coming back for many reasons.

“People feel, after hormone balancing, their minds seem to work better, and they have clearer thoughts.  They’re losing weight, feeling happier.  They’re feeling less stressed, less anxious. I lost 35 pounds in six months and feel much stronger,” said Foley.
