AfterGlo Spa to host holistic expert 'Dr. Tom' for seminars


AfterGlo Spa & Wellness Center in Ocean View will be hosting Dr. Tom Baldwin in the coming weeks for seminars on everything from the secret to weight loss to myths of modern medicine.

“Dr. Tom” graduated from the University of Maryland School of Dentistry in 1970. He established a dental practice in Towson, Md., specializing in holistic and non-toxic dentistry. He retired from his practice, but he continued his holistic education and his focus on treating the cause of problems, rather than simply treating symptoms, as he said is the case with traditional dentistry and medicine. After completing graduate work at the Clayton College of Natural Health, he was recently awarded a master’s degree in holistic nutrition.

Baldwin and his family now live in Ocean View, and he said he is looking forward to sharing his expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of toxicity (including heavy metal toxicity), holistic treatment of auto-immune disease (such as arthritis of all types) and the treatment of ADD, ADHD and allergies with visitors to AfterGlo Spa and Wellness Center and members of the community. His goal as a holistic health practitioner, he said, is to help people build up and strengthen their immune system to help ward off diseases, more naturally.

“I was trained years ago in metabolic and nutritional typing,” explained Baldwin, adding that with a simple test, they can tell which types of food are best processed by a specific person’s body.

“People are told to ‘eat a good diet,’ but they have no idea what that means to them,” he said. “Sixty percent of chronic problems can be addressed by targeting what people need nutritionally. With the quality of the diet, the body can heal itself.”

Sheila Brittingham, licensed esthetician, certified medical esthetician and owner of AfterGlo Spa & Wellness Center, said she met Baldwin and his wife about a year ago, after they became clients.

“I knew of his background,” explained Brittingham, “and thought this would make a great partnership. He is really just an awesome person and has such a wealth of knowledge. He is like our own Dr. Oz!”

AfterGlo Spa & Wellness Center offers hair, makeup and nail treatments, spray tanning, peels, and waxing. They recently added their wellness center, where they offer massages, facials, Reiki, ear candling and dermaplane service (a manual exfoliation similar to microdermabrasion).

“Dr. Tom” will hold the first in a series of free “Dr. Tom Talks” on Thursday, Nov. 8, from 7 to 8 p.m. at the AfterGlo Spa & Wellness Center in Ocean View. The series includes “G-Bombs,” which Baldwin said is “the secret to low weight and longevity; “Eat a Good Diet,” discussing what that means; “The Seven Myths of Modern Medicine” and “The Four Points” of good health and longevity.

Refreshments will be served. The seminars are free to the public. A RSVP is requested but is not required. For more information, call (302) 537-SKIN or visit afterglospa.com for a complete list of their services. For more information on Dr. Tom Baldwin, visit www.wholebodyhealth.us.
