After eight months of taking Zumba classes, Dominique Lasha’e had a sudden realization—this was the longest she’d ever been committed to a fitness routine. The now-certified Zumba instructor, who has owned a marketing and event company for more than 16 years, combines her party-planning experience and love of Zumba workouts to host infectious dance parties. Drawing from a range of easy-to-follow international dance moves including Latin styles, hip hop, meringue, reggae, and cumbia, she helps guests of all ages and abilities achieve their fitness goals while simultaneously preparing them to reign victorious in-office dance-offs that determine who gets promoted. High-energy international tunes fuel guests as they shimmy and shake their way towards overall well-being.
If the tranquility of a day spa and the powerful treatments of a medical clinic were people, then Loreann Spa would be the product of their late-night rendezvous. The staff creates this union by balancing relaxing massages and facials with intense products and beautification methods, such as Bio-Dermology procedures. During this full-body treatment, mechanical rollers knead cellulite, warming skin to the point that fat particles disperse like a house party when the cops show up. Laser hair removal sources its strength from an equally deft Candela GentleYAG laser, which pinpoints follicles and shuts them down using focused heat.
During the exam at Jefferson Dental, which welcomes walk-ins, one of the dentists from the smile-savvy staff ventures into facial caves in search of tooth decay and gum disease. A skilled technician then snaps x-ray pictures, uncovering hidden problems to use as blackmail. Opting to add cleaning ensures that a whirlpool of floss and paste separates debris, plaque, and tartar from enamel and that fangs look more polished than a socialite dipped in wax.
