The staff at Healing Arts Institute instructs aspiring therapists in body work that aims to eliminate pain from the center of the body. Anatomy and physiology classes, classrooms with full-length mirrors, and more than 1,600 square feet of space help interns learn body mechanics. A vast understanding of the body?s inner workings help them as they move from classroom study to the school?s onsite spa, where clients can schedule massages with them or with the school?s experts. Student interns complete over 200 hours of training, and while beginning interns perform gentle Swedish-style massages, more advanced practitioners can quell injuries with their handiwork. Regardless of style, all of Healing Arts Institute?s clients depart from the massage clinic feeling more relaxed than a sloth traveling through a speed trap. Healing Arts Institute also has a community-acupuncture clinic where a licensed acupuncturist, not a student, inserts needles into several clients at once. Clients lie back in recliners and rest while the needles go to work. Because the acupuncturist can treat multiple people at a time and no private treatment rooms are used, community acupuncture costs less than private acupuncture. It is also the type of acupuncture commonly used in Asia.

Dr. Fred Silveria, a graduate of the Palmer College of Chiropractic, has been gently adjusting patients and soothing pain for more than 30 years. Drawing on this experience, Dr. Silveria can find the source of back pain by probing the back gently by hand, using x-rays to identify imbalances, or asking if you’ve starred in a series of popular trampoline-accident videos. Once he has discovered potential issues, he draws on a range of treatments. These can include physical therapy and supplements to help strengthen the body or orthopedic supplies designed to counter the tiny imbalances in the feet that lead to back pain.

Skaters fly over the double-pocket bowl and full street-skate course custom-built outside Surf & Skate, and visitors inside try on apparel in themed fitting rooms with beaches, snow, and street scenes. Custom-designed countertops showcase styles reflecting from various local artists, such as urban graffiti and whimsical mosaics. Atop the counters rest skate, wake, surf, and snow gear from brands including O'Neill, Roxy, and Unit, whereas boards designed for surfing, skating, and practicing medicine line the walls alongside bikinis and snow pants. Owner Bob Mitchell opened Surf & Skate in 1981 to supply local skaters and surfers, eventually expanding his shop to supply wakeboarders and snowboarders. Team members are each skilled in at least one or two extreme sports and possess in-depth knowledge about all products. Surf & Skate also hosts events at its skate park, such as the 2010 Volcom Brand Jeans tour, which featured pro skaters, and summer-night sessions with skate shows and barbecue fare. The skate park is open for use for all skaters who have the proper equipment and sign a waiver at the store.

Clint Robinson's U.S. Air Force duty took him around the world, but it was his time in South Korea that made the biggest mark. There, he learned the art of tae kwon do—and the positive fitness and values associated with it. When he returned to the states and left the Air Force, it didn't take long for him to found his own martial-arts school. More than 40 years and 19 locations later, Robinson's Taekwondo continues to thrive on the same principles on which Clint founded his business: excellence, personal attention, and tradition. He now counts children's, adult, and family programs as part of his curriculum. With continued training, students of all ages not only hone their fitness, but also improve their mental sharpness, self-confidence, and discipline.

Kim Stanford attributes her many ribbons, medals, and championship trophies to perseverance and proper training. At Moonstone Riding Academy & Show Barn, she emphasizes these principles as owner and head trainer. Against the backdrop of the Santa Ana Mountains, she teaches beginners and professional competitors alike safe riding techniques in the disciplines of English, huntseat, and equitation. When students aren't studying in the saddle, they'll become well-rounded horsepeople by participating in post-lesson grooming and tacking instead of nailing horseshoes to their boots as a way to bond with the animals.
