More than three decades have passed since head instructor Bobby Giordano founded American Martial Arts Center. Giordano spent that time earning not one, but five black belts, and learning the ropes of muay thai and jeet kune do. The former bodyguard spreads his expertise to the masses through private martial-arts classes and enlists a staff of talented instructors to amplify the effect. Together they expound practical self-defense techniques designed to preempt attacks in the ring, on the streets, and in grocery-store aisles the day before Thanksgiving. Teachers whip students into shape during mixed-martial-arts, muay thai, Brazilian jujitsu, and kickboxing classes, which are all practiced in a fun, safe environment.

Kids and teens warrant their own kid-friendly branch of the business. Whereas adult classes aim for fitness and skill, the kids’ sessions emphasize values such as self-confidence and self-discipline, which come in handy when betting a punching bag that you won’t punch it.

The multi-lingual staff at Dr. Dental, a family-run practice, strives to shatter orthodontic stereotypes by tidying up tusks in an unintimidating office sporting the ambience of a friendly neighborhood establishment. Return choppers to a glowing state with a new-patient cleaning, a procedure that polishes pearly whites and analyzes teeth’s deep-seated fear of falling out and being exiled by a fairy. After a deep cleaning, the non-judgmental dentist administers bitewing x-rays to inspect for toothy ailments and lays out a long-term treatment plan for molar maintenance. Many locations offer after-hours and weekend appointment times for patients who are busy with work, family, or animal husbandry.

Don't be distracted by the name?Pro Sports Orthopedics is a clinic for athletes and non-athletes alike.

And with three different offices and three affiliated hospitals, the clinic helps patients heal all across Greater Boston.

Majestic Yoga Studio's seasoned instructors pilot an extensive roster of 75-minute classes. During Hatha-yoga courses, participants of all skill levels can practice breath control while moving through a series of postures that were developed centuries ago to help individuals to refresh their bodies after watching too much TV. Vinyasa, or "slow flow," classes enlist gentle, smooth movements and asana sequences to elevate pupils' self-awareness and, like balancing a Faberg? egg atop one's head, Anusara-inspired sessions bolster proper body alignment. Students with injuries or limitations can opt for gentle yoga, designed with basic mobility and range of motion exercises.
