Dr. Steve Lee’s extensive training has prepared him for any dental situation, from routine checkups and teeth-whitening treatments to challenging root canals and dental implants. He also provides dental services to less fortunate folk, and helps raise money to build dental clinics domestically, internationally, and intergalactically.
Licensed naturopathic physician Dr. Leny Eidsmore of Highlands Naturopathic Physician often fuses botanical remedies and Chinese medicine to help bring bodies into balance, but she doesn't ignore the role of technology in healing. When Dr. Eidsmore meets clients for free consultations, she takes a holistic approach to determining treatment goals by asking about health history, current medications, and the last time the client was struck by lightning. From there, she may prescribe custom nutritional plans or begin aesthetic treatments, such as reducing cellulite with detoxification and radiofrequency therapy or minimizing rosacea and acne with IPL treatments.
Licensed acupuncturist David Mitts takes the expression "looks can be deceiving" seriously when it comes to his practice. A patient who walks into his clinic exhibiting signs of back pain may actually be dealing with a digestive problem. A client with headaches may have no head-related issues at all. David's form of acupuncture is uniquely suited to tackle deceptive cases like these. Classical Five Element Treatment, as opposed to many forms of Western health management, doesn’t just treat symptoms, but instead zeroes in on the root problem. By nipping diseases and ailments in the bud, David helps his patients not only achieve the symptomatic relief typically achieved Western medicine, but also improve their overall health in the long term.
Nationally certified personal trainer Luka Hocevar turned to fitness tutelage after 20 years of shooting hoops, which took him to the NBA Summer Pro League and Europe's premier basketball leagues. Since then, he has applied his exercise expertise to help fitness newbies and UFC, NBA, and NFL athletes alike whip into shape, making his way into the top five best personal trainers named by KING5 Best of Western Washington in 2010. He doesn’t just dive right in, though. After a friend revealed to him that “people don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care,” Hocevar has made a commitment to get to know his clients before building an expedited fitness program around their goals and needs.
Hocevar leads a diverse team of passionate, experienced trainers that includes a seasoned martial artist, a soccer player, and a kinesiologist. They motivate clients in both mind and body with customized exercise regimens during group personal training and athlete-performance training, a strength and conditioning program designed to enhance sport-specific movements and improve recovery time. The 4,600-square-foot facility brims with Olympic platforms, kettlebells, dumbbells, and strongman equipment, as well as functional implements to ensure that each workout is varied and challenging.
Vigor Ground Fitness and Performance also serves as home base for the award-winning Renton Results Boot Camp. Hocevar designed this results-driven program that mixes cardio and strength training with vigorous interval workouts to trim fat from physiques. To help students best burn fat, trainers constantly rotate drills to keep different muscles engaged, and nutritional manuals outline wholesome meal plans. With Bootcamps-to-Go media in the form of videos, mp3s, and self-destructing scrolls, students can continue to hone their flab-blasting moves at home. Hocevar also strives to make each boot-camp endeavor a personalized one, providing unlimited email support to all of his clients.

In addition to classes and workshops, Maya Whole Health Studio offers health services including massage, holistic skincare, sugar hair removal, and acupuncture, all of which are focused on releasing fear and tension and bringing more joy and spontaneous hugs from strangers into clients’ lives.
