From its bamboo floors to its locally sourced ceilings, Body Solutions embodies owner Steve Young's belief that healthy environments beget healthy bodies. Within the eco-friendly facility, Dr. Young melds the best of Eastern and Western medicine to help patients recover from injuries or to bolster wellness. Rather than kneading bodies with chemical-filled lotions and used motor oil, massage and physical therapists soak pores in all-natural soaps, cleansers, and lotions. They supplement massage therapy with Pilates, yoga, and martial arts, helping clients optimize their range of motion and achieve whole-body health.
As a board-certified surgeon who specializes in minimally invasive cosmetic surgery, Dr. Adam Goldstein, along with his fellow board-certified vascular surgeons, knew he wanted to use the latest in laser therapy techniques to contour bodies and eradicate varicose veins. Dr. Goldstein, the founder of ScuLpt Cosmetic Surgery, says he was drawn to SmartLipo because it allows doctors to not only contour bodies by liquefying and suctioning out fat but also to do it in a way that is less invasive than traditional liposuction, which can often result in extensive bleeding. This enables patients to have speedier recoveries and get back to normal activities, such as work or counting the seconds until the End Times, in a few days.
The vascular surgeons on staff rid legs of ropey varicose vessels with ultrasound-monitored endovenous laser therapy (ELVT). This technique closes off painful blood conduits with laser energy, clearing up the dark veins on legs with very little downtime.
CrossFit workouts are not meant to be easy, though they are meant to be accessible to students of any fitness level. They incorporate functional movements alongside elements of track, gymnastics, and weightlifting, encouraging students to push themselves through sequences of pulling, squatting, jumping, throwing, carrying, sprinting, and levitating. Yet every drop of sweat falls in a safe and supportive group environment. Coaches Carlo Profico and Keakahiwalani Landschoot help each attendee scale the load as well as the intensity of the exercises, creating workouts that are challenging, yet doable. Increased strength and stamina is a given over time, but the coaches also hope to inspire their students mentally and emotionally by helping them overcome the workouts’ physical challenges and mid-rep pop quizzes.
There's room for all types of workouts in Nexxt Level Sports' 22,000-square-foot, climate-controlled facility. Basketball players can hone their technique on two NBA-length hardwood courts, and baseball players can perfect their swings in 70-foot batting cages instead of going to an orchard and waiting for regulation-sized apples to fall. In group-training classes, meanwhile, gym patrons can focus on strength or build endurance with varied circuit workouts, including strength and resistance training. For a more private workout, personal trainers also lead one-on-one sessions, tailoring their exercises to the clients' fitness goals.
Per their name, the five clinics that compose Brilliant Smiles Dental Group can lighten teeth by up to eight shades in a single hour. Their secret is the Zoom! whitening system, whose light-activated whitening gel penetrates each tooth’s surface, lifting deep-seated stains along the way. Like the clinics’ veneers and crowns, their whitening treatments beautify smiles more effectively than a bracelet wrapped around your tongue. However, the clinics complement their aesthetic services with preventative care, such as x-rays and gum disease screenings, as well as cleanings, root canals, and other general dentistry.
