When corporations decide to revise the way they handle resources, Ace?an acronym for ?a creative environment??springs into action with suggestions for environmentally sustainable practices. Ace Wellness is a division of the company that helps businesses and communities develop fitness programs. One of these is Carlsbad Village Yoga and Fitness, which aims to invigorate the local community with more than 50 yoga and fitness classes, which are more effective than spiking the town?s water supply with Mountain Dew.
From beach boot camp to kids? exercise classes, the offerings are as diverse as the instructors. Of these teachers, some hail from Brazil and some have studied in exotic locales such as Istanbul, but they all enhance their classes in their own ways. The majority of these sessions happen inside a studio known as ?the heartspace.? Local artwork covers the walls of the studio, which is lined with hardwood floors and surrounded by mirrors. Out on the brick patio, guests can enjoy veggie protein shakes or count bricks until they fall asleep. On the first Friday of the month, the studio hosts black-light yoga, yoga for kids, and a community potluck. On weekends, the space is available for rehearsal dinners, art openings, and other events.
Nutrition Zone's stores pack their shelves with products designed to power workouts and support a holistically healthy body. Educated staff members swarm the store, ready to answer inquiries and help conquer performance problems and sentient, vengeful treadmills. Customers can prepower weight lifting with containers of BSN N.O.-Xplode ($35.99) or Jack3d ($26.99), each of which floods the nervous system with energy, supports healthy muscle construction, and erects barriers against fatigue. Individual Hammer nutrition gels ($0.99) pop into mouths midworkout to deliver a vital kick of energy, and a 26-pack ($16.99) sustains stamina long enough for bodies to translate War and Peace into interpretive dance. Sixteen ounces of Barleans flax oil ($14.99) rebalances fatty-acid ratios thrown askew by omega-6 overpopulation, and B12 lozenges ($4.99) pipe bodily vivacity from beneath tongues. Nutrition Zone also aims to amend their patrons' eating habits with free diet consultations available upon request.
Carlsbad Eye Care's board-certified ophthalmologist Michael Tracy cares for eyes with the latest technology and a wealth of advanced training. After attending medical school at Columbia University's College of Physicians and Surgeons in New York, Dr. Tracy went on to perform his residency in ophthalmology at the Scheie Eye Institute at the University of Pennsylvania. He then completed a fellowship in corneal and refractive surgery at the prestigious Bascom Palmer Eye Institute at the University of Miami, which has been ranked as the top eye hospital in the United States by U.S. News & World Report.
Dr. Tracy has performed thousands of eye procedures, including LASIK, custom surface ablation (PRK), and cataract surgery. He employs state-of-the-art equipment during LASIK surgeries, eschewing a handheld blade or Keebler elf’s samurai sword in favor of the advanced IntraLase femtosecond laser.
During the past five years, Dr. Phillip Milgram has used the FDA-approved PinPointe FootLaser to address the nail concerns of more than 2,200 patients. A team of NIH-funded scientists and medical professionals spent two decades developing the technology used in the laser, which carefully eradicates fungus without damaging the nail or surrounding skin. After each of the approximately 30-minute procedures, patients can immediately resume normal activities and expect their nails to grow back clear or with a french tip.
Skincare expert Candy Granados has witnessed the evolution of the beauty industry over the past 17 years, working at international resorts and spas and now staying on top of the latest research and technology at her own practice. She customizes more than 20 types of facials, peels, and specialty treatments with professional products by Le Mieux and Mesoestetic USA, and she adds to the relaxing nature of each visit with a face, neck, and shoulder massage. Enhancing beauty through technology, Granados exfoliates skin with a microdermabrasion device, deploys ultrasonic waves to deep-clean pores, and uses LED therapy to address redness, laxity, or pallid skin caused by clapping the dust out of chalkboard erasers.
