With machines set up in rows to encourage competition, many ordinary gyms cater to men's bodies and psychology, right down to the urinals that were accidentally installed in the women's locker room. At Curves, you'll move around a circle of hydraulic resistance machines designed to work with women's bodies, promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage machine maneuvering and muscle making. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing momentum, the hydraulic machines use each lady’s body weight and unique fitness level to create resistance that matches her abilities, decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions can 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.
For Doctor of Chiropractic Matt Ogle of Highland Chiropractic, it's not enough to ease the symptoms of ailments. He wants to pinpoint their cause. During exams, Dr. Ogle investigates issues in children as young as newborns by looking for their source, using high-tech computer scanning equipment. Once he's located the source of issue and the patient's hidden set of car keys, he sets to work stimulating the body to recover from it. For this step, Dr. Ogle relies on traditional, drug-free chiropractic techniques, such as spinal adjustments and massages.
Dr. Lon McRae mitigates dental dilemmas with an anxiety assuaging environment and expert care. The dental cleaning includes a thorough exam, bitewing x-rays, and a basic preventative prophylaxis cleaning. While undergoing chew-box maintenance, patients can use personal movie glasses to watch 500 channels. If further dental deeds are required, this Groupon can be combined with insurance to foot the bill. A take-home bleach whitening kit blanches teeth lighter than a pair of unsunned thighs covered in vanilla cream cheese frosting.
Doctor of Chiropractic Steven Killion’s practice, Integrative Health Centers of Idaho, is focused on keeping bodies pain-free by ensuring backs are at their healthiest. He expertly straightens out troublesome spines using Triton DTS spinal-decompression therapy. The decompression sessions combine several simultaneous actions: isolating the spinal disk and joint, placing them under a vacuum-like negative pressure, widening nerve openings, and gently stretching ligaments and muscles to improve circulation. Dr. Killion keeps his patients feeling great by adding massage therapy and passive therapies that use ice, heat, or Bob Seger records.
Dr. Katherine Elstun, medical director of Eagle Health and Wellness, understands the frustration patients feel when a physician lacks the time to discuss the lifestyle changes that will lead to better health. Eager to redefine the traditional doctor-patient relationship, she expanded her team to include a medical aesthetician and clinical counselor who work cooperatively to execute anti-aging skin treatments, weight-loss therapies, and synchronized cartwheel routines. The wellness squad motivates patients within bright and airy offices decorated with vivid wall art and neatly stacked herbal and medical-grade products.
The “move” in Move Fitness’s name might be a shimmy, a salsa step, or a spin—instructors at this studio only teach Zumba.

The calorie-torching classes convene five days a week in Eagle and Meridian.
