 Gainswave Therapy Pinellas Park, FL

How Do GAINSWave Treatments Work?

GAINSWave might sound too good to be true on the surface. However, this type of erectile dysfunction treatment in Clearwater uses science-based, research-backed applications and technologies that have been proven to be effective.

GAINSWave works by targeting the underlying issue of ED: blood flow. Continuous blood flow is critical in maintaining an erection. As men age, blood vessels in their penis break down and fill up with micro plaques, further reducing blood flow. GAINSWave treatment addresses this issue using low-intensity shockwaves or acoustic pulses to re-open closed blood vessels and help form new ones simultaneously. This increased blood flow essentially eliminates the symptoms of erectile dysfunction, letting men across the country gain a new lease on life.

Because this procedure is drug, surgery, and needle-free, most men won't have to stress about costly insurance claims or ugly scarring. All you need to think about is enjoying life with a new pep in your step, whether you're headed to work or spending time with your spouse in the bedroom.

Alpha Med Group's patients love that GAINSWave is quick, effective, and gets right to the root cause of their issues. Our GAINSWave treatments yield long-term results with optimized sexual performance and even treat other issues like Peyronie's disease.

Who is a Candidate for GAINSWave Therapy in Pinellas Park, FL?

Any man older than 30 can enjoy the benefits of GAINSWave therapy. Men with or without erectile dysfunction use GAINSWave to reshape their sex lives without resorting to over-the-counter pills and prescriptions like Cialis. While it's true that the “blue pill” can temporarily relieve ED, that relief is short-lived because pills don't address the root cause of the issue. To make matters worse, many drugs have unwanted and unsafe side effects. GAINSWave represents a much safer, more effective solution for men who are sick and tired of the stress and embarrassment associated with ED.

Whether you're dealing with severe erectile dysfunction or you simply want a little more spark with your partner, GAINSWave is the surgery-free, drug-free alternative you can rely on.

To help you get a better understanding of Alpha Med Group's GAINSWave therapy, consider these quick facts:

  • GAINSWave is Among the Safest and Most Effective ED Treatments Available
  • Many Men Experience Results After One GAINSWave Treatment
  • Sessions Are Usually Short and Typically Last 15-20 Minutes
  • Most Men Need Between Six and Twelve Sessions
  • GAINSWave Releases Growth Factors that Help Form New Blood Vessels
  • Treatments Break Up Plaque, Which Further Stimulates Blood Flow
  • Many Men Enjoy Longer, Harder Erections with GAINSWave Treatment
  • GAINSWave Therapy May Activate Stem Cells That Foster New Cell Growth

What About Taking Pills for My Erectile Dysfunction?

In today's day and age, products that promise quick results and convenience are king. It makes sense, then, that many men want the fastest solution to their ED problem. While it's easy to pop a “little blue pill,” doing so can come with consequences that you don't get with GAINSWave treatment. And when it comes to sketchy over-the-counter options that you can buy at your local gas station, the risks are quite concerning. Before you re-up your prescription or head to the gas station, consider these side effects:

  • Heart Palpitations
  • Back Pain
  • Vision Loss
  • Rashes
  • Fever
  • Nausea
  • Respiratory Problems
  • Pain in Penis
  • Heart Failure

If you're one of the many men who settled for strange side effects just to regain confidence in the bedroom, it's time to celebrate. Rather than relying on prescriptions or a la carte options, health-conscious men are using GAINSWave treatments for a safer, natural solution with no side effects.

What Client Say About Us

What are the Signs of Peyronie's Disease?

Men suffering from Peyronie's disease may notice an array of symptoms, which may manifest quickly or slowly. Some of the most common symptoms include:

Severe Bend of Penis: One of the most common symptoms of Peyronie's disease is significant bending of the penis in a certain direction, with or without achieving an erection.

  • Scar Tissue: If you notice unusual bands or hard lumps of tissue under the skin of your penis, it could mean you have Peyronie's disease.
  • Hourglass Shape: This disease occasionally causes the penis to narrow, resulting in an hourglass shape.
  • Pain in Penis:The curve caused by this disease is often painful, regardless if you have an erection or not.
  • Shortened Penis:Some men have reported that their penis is noticeably shorter with Peyronie's disease.

A Natural Solution to Peyronie's Disease

If you're one of the many American men who has lost hope because of Peyronie's disease, there is a new reason to be hopeful. Peyronie's disease is treatable, and you don't have to rely on surgery, vacuum devices, or a wait-and-see approach to get results.

If you're a man searching for a safe, non-invasive, natural treatment option for Peyronie's disease, GAINSWave therapy is the way to go. GAINSWave incorporates premium low-intensity, high-frequency shockwaves that break down plaque (or scar tissue) while opening and creating new blood vessels. When blood flow is increased, the penis curvature associated with Peyronie's disease is often reduced, giving men a new chance to enjoy a healthy sex life.

St. Pete’s first dog waterpark and bar Mutts & Martinis is under construction in the Grand Central District

St. Petersburg, already the nation’s most dog-friendly city, is about to become even more accommodating to canines with the highly anticipated Mutts and Martinis on track to open in March.

The brainchild of Natalie Conner, owner of Love My Dog Resort and Playground, which has locations in downtown St. Pete and northern Pinellas County, Mutts and Martinis, first announced by St Pete Rising in October 2020 and located at 2900 Central Avenue, will be the city’s first dog park and full-liquor bar.

With more than 5,000 square feet of space, the facility will feature a zero-entry splash fountain and water sprays. The fountain will be only about 10 inches deep so there’s no risk of drowning.

Like the nearby Dog Bar, memberships will be required and, to obtain a membership, dogs must meet certain requirements such as being up to date on vaccinations.

“I would love to be open for spring break,” Conner says. “The bar is built. The countertops and flooring will be the next stages.”

The property was formerly the home of an auto-repair shop, King’s Transmission, and Conner is taking full advantage of the large garage-door openings that were already part of the building.

“We’ll have nine garage doors,” she says. “It will have a nice pet fence, thick-gauge, wrought-iron fencing that goes around the entire property.”

Like a dog park, Mutts and Martinis will have double-gated entry to ensure the safety of dogs and their owners. “One way coming in, one way going out,” Conner says, adding that small dogs and senior pups will have a separate entrance for added safety. Dogs will have to be leashed when they aren’t in the specific park portions of the facility.

The entertainment of pup parents hasn’t been overlooked, though — Conner says the bar will have 27 TVs.

“We’ll be watching all the NFL games, the hockey,” she says. “We’ll have live music here, too. We’ll build out a stage.”

She adds, “The idea is that people go in with their dogs, then every 20 minutes or so, we’ll be like, ‘Hey, let’s get all the little dogs in, or all the senior dogs in.’ We’ll keep swapping them back and forth. That way, we won’t have the big guys chasing little dogs. It’s a little more controlled and it’s safer.”

Mutts and Martinis, Conner adds, will also have a dedicated area where pooches can be dried off after they’ve splish-splashed their way around the park.

Human customers will be able to enjoy a full selection of beer, wine, and liquor, with some of the cocktail names being dog-related, and Conner plans to bring in local food trucks to round out the menu. She also plans to sell dog treats and accessories and would like to host breed-specific meetups. Also, a portion of the bar area will be air-conditioned to provide relief from the summer heat.

Conner says Mutts and Martinis will likely have a soft opening and then it will be open Wednesday through Sunday, with Mondays and Tuesdays possibly being available for private events. Information about memberships will be forthcoming.

“We know a lot of doggie people,” Conner says. “We just hope they come down here and have a drink.”

Tampa Bay, Christmas is over. Here’s how to throw out your tree.

If you’re the type who starts hunting evergreens as soon as you’ve emerged from your Thanksgiving food coma, that beautiful Christmas tree you picked out a month ago might be looking a bit Charlie Brown-ish by now. And even if you’re a live-tree lover who waits until mid-December with designs to leave it up through New Year’s Day or Epiphany, it’s probably time to think about when to dispose of the Fraser fir in the corner of your living room.With the New Year bearing down, cities and counties across Tamp...

If you’re the type who starts hunting evergreens as soon as you’ve emerged from your Thanksgiving food coma, that beautiful Christmas tree you picked out a month ago might be looking a bit Charlie Brown-ish by now. And even if you’re a live-tree lover who waits until mid-December with designs to leave it up through New Year’s Day or Epiphany, it’s probably time to think about when to dispose of the Fraser fir in the corner of your living room.

With the New Year bearing down, cities and counties across Tampa Bay are releasing guidelines on how to trash your trees. One rule they all share: Take off your lights, your ornaments, your toppers and stands before disposing of the tree.

Shed a tear for the end of the holiday season, then read on to find out the options for your neck of the woods.

Clearwater

Residents in single-family homes should place the trees, whole, on the curb on their regular yard-waste collection day. There’s no set end date on tree collection and no quantity limit.

Residents in apartment buildings or condos should check with their property management company or homeowners’ association for instructions on tree disposal.

Hillsborough County

The county will pick up trees on the curbside on regular yard waste collection days. Trees should be cut into sections up to four feet long and six inches in diameter. Yard waste won’t be collected on New Year’s Day; for households where the scheduled collection day falls on Jan. 1, waste will be picked up on the next scheduled day.

Trees can also be dropped off at two county yard waste processing facilities: one at 13000 U.S. 41 in Gibsonton, the other at 8001 W. Linebaugh Ave. in Tampa. Those facilities will be closed on New Year’s Day.

Pasco County

There’s no curbside pickup program for Christmas trees in Pasco, but residents have drop-off options at both ends of the county. One is Wesley Chapel District Park at 7727 Boyette Road; the other is Veterans Memorial Park at 14333 Hicks Road in Hudson. Both are open through Jan. 11.

Pinellas County

Pinellas County provides an online search tool, called Where Does It Go? , for residents to figure out where to dispose of different kinds of solid waste, including Christmas trees. It links to curbside tree pickup instructions for 18 cities, a few of which also have drop-off options. Residents who live in unincorporated parts of the county can see whether their waste hauler offers curbside pickup.

Those who don’t have a curbside option, or who miss their window, can take their tree to one of several yard-waste facilities listed on the page, including the Pinellas County Solid Waste Disposal Complex at 3095 114th Ave. N., St. Petersburg.

You’ll get a remembrance of Tampa Bay residents we’ve lost, including heartwarming and amusing details about their lives, every Tuesday.

And those in apartments or condos should consult their property managers or homeowners’ associations for guidance on tree disposal.

St. Petersburg

A city-wide collection of trees is scheduled for Jan. 14. Once decorations are removed, trees should be placed at the usual trash pickup spot — on the curb or in the alley — by 7 a.m. Residents in condos and apartment buildings should ask their property managers for disposal instructions.

Trees can also be dropped off at any of the city’s five brush sites, which are open 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. every day except Jan. 1. They’re located at:

1000 62nd Ave. NE

7750 26th Ave. N.

2500 26th Ave. S.

4015 Dr. Martin Luther King St. S.

2453 20th Ave. N.

Tampa

The city will collect Christmas trees curbside, at no extra cost, beginning on Jan. 3. Tree limbs must be cut into bundles up to four feet long and put out on the regularly scheduled yard waste collection day. Any lights or decorations being thrown away should be put in the trash. Tree collection runs through Jan. 13.
