New wellness center in Aiken targets obesity

A new fitness center is now open in Aiken and the target is weight loss.

Palmetto Wellness opened its doors Wednesday afternoon, with an unveiling of the facility located off Silver Bluff Rd. Owners of the clinic said they are trying to tackle obesity by treating their patients with all natural cures.

"We treat people through diet and through nutritional supplements to help them get weight off," said Dr. Gregory Eaves, the found of the clinic. "We don't use injections and we don't use appetite suppressants and things like that for weight loss."

Palmetto Wellness is located at 1397 Silver Bluff Rd.
