One wasn't enough for Radiant Complexions Dermatology Clinics—its team of doctors and nurse practitioners have established 11 offices across Iowa and Arizona in the past decade. At each location, dermatology specialists preserve the health and unique character of all skin types with medical and cosmetic treatments. They can resolve all types of skin problems, and tend to strictly aesthetic concerns from the outside in with chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and dermal fillers. Offices are equipped with advanced StarLux fractional lasers, which firm the skin by stimulating collagen production at the dermal layer, and VelaShape machines that use radio and light energies to reduce the appearance of cellulite and sagging skin. A scientifically formulated line of skincare products allow for at-home care with glycolic acid, retinol, and Vitamin C.

Elsewhere, an arcade enthralls gamers with titles such as Time Crisis 3 and Guitar Hero, and a bounce house shelters leaping tykes aged 7 and younger. Kingpin Pizza reenergizes visitors with its extensive menu of paninis, pasta, salads, and made-from-scratch New York--style thin-crust pizzas cooked in a Roto-Flex oven whose rotating stone shelves can bake up to 100 pizzas every hour.

The one-month membership also gives fitnessmongers access to a full-length pool at the North location, which accommodates fat-banishing underwater three-legged races, as well as tennis courts at the South location. Additionally, patrons get access to more than 90 weekly group classes. Brightly lit, mirrored studios play host during the calming yoga-Pilates fusion Group Centergy, while Power Aqua breaks sweats without aggravating joints in the pool.

Cindy Larson, the massage therapist behind Total Relaxation, has relieved aching bodies with a variety of hands-on techniques since 1997, including at the Special Olympics in 2006 and at Iowa State University's dance marathon in 2009. At her practice, she discusses the ins and outs of different massage modalities with clients before sessions, helping them choose the most beneficial one for them. Relaxing Swedish massages alleviate tension with light pressure, whereas trigger-point and muscle-release techniques work to unclench tense muscles and constricted fascia. Cindy specializes in relieving hip, back, and shoulder pain, as well as headaches and pain associated with plantar fasciitis.
