For more than 15 years, Lifetime Dental Group's team of dentists has worked to keep children's and adults' teeth strong, healthy, and gleaming white. The staff performs restorative treatments that range from cavity fillings to root canals and beautify smiles with near-invisible Clear Correct braces, Zoom! teeth-whitening, and other cosmetic treatments. Throughout appointments, the dentists utilize advanced technologies including digital x-rays, which produce up to 90% less radiation and yield clearer images than traditional x-rays, and E4D technology, which allows for the creation of precisely fitted crowns in as little as one day.
Members at Curves, a fitness center designed exclusively for women, rotate around a circuit of hydraulic resistance machines that have been designed to work with female bodies and promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage participants’ machine maneuvering and muscle making. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing momentum, the hydraulic machines use your own body weight, fitness level, and aerodynamic water bottle to create resistance that matches abilities, decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, each machine uses push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can.
Board-certified Doctor of Chiropractic Michael Brannan emphasizes a whole-person approach, examining the body's musculoskeletal and nervous systems to attend to much more than just symptomatic pain. Before attempting to make any spinal adjustments, Dr. Brannan diagnoses ailments using spinal and postural screenings and x-rays to pinpoint problems and see what's going on inside the body. He then sits down with patients to discuss their medical history and determine if chiropractic care is the correct course of action. He knows that, sometimes, all that's needed to treat pain are corrective exercises, proper nutrition and lifestyle advice, and a giant lollipop.
If he decides that chiropractic therapy is needed, Dr. Brannan uses a variety of adjustments and employs massage therapy using modalities such as hot stone, relaxation, and chair massage for tense recliners. He later gives each person a wellness plan to follow at home.

Every location also hosts a kids' room, where youngsters can craft macaroni kettlebells under the supervision of a full-time staff member.
The Maori word “koru” refers to a newborn, unfurling fern—a symbol of the constantly renewing bond between different people.

Acne and rosacea treatments, custom facials, and chemical peels boost skin health; eyebrow and eyelash tinting, eyelash extensions, and waxing services augment clients’ natural beauty. Clients can also relax with Kathy’s massage-therapy services instead of taking a nap on the grocery store’s cushy lettuce.
