Heartland Dental Care's member practices pursue a patient-centric approach to keeping teeth tartar-free and bite-ready. Show off your champion chompers to an oral x-ray machine, which will be so suitably impressed it'll snap photos providing toothy views unavailable to the naked eye or standard-issue x-ray specs. A thorough cleaning polishes each mouth stone without the clumsy mechanics of a jaw-mounted rock tumbler, turning average grins into blinding megawatt smiles. An expert exam makes sure each tooth is in good shape and securely welded to the cranial frame. Superb for competitive taffy eaters and Cheshire Cat impersonators, rebuffed teeth provide everything a mouth needs to preserve its reputation of being the most dangerous place for food.
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 circuit of hydraulic resistance machines that have been designed to work with women's bodies and promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing your momentum, the hydraulic machines use your body weight and fitness level to create resistance that matches your abilities, decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions 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.
Joan Krueger?a certified hypnotherapist who has been practicing since 1994?has her own metaphor to describe the subconscious mind: she likens it to a filing cabinet filled with the programs that help you function. She believes the key is to rewrite the programs, changing the information so we can function in different ways.
At Joan Krueger Hypnosis, she helps to change habits such as smoking cigarettes overeating, or biting your fingernails. She does this by bringing clients into a relaxed state during which their subconscious mind becomes receptive to suggestions. She then delivers the suggestion that will enable you to create the changes you desire. Krueger claims a high success rate: according to her website, 80% of clients are able to quit smoking after just one visit.
Opened in 1960, Union Hills Golf Course's 18-hole layout presents a tale of two nines. On the front nine, golfers can swing freely?and find their rhythm?on a mostly open layout, easing their way into the round. The tone shifts on the back nine, where fairways tunnel through dense groves of trees that have grown tall in their half-century of maturation. Adding to the difficulty, water hazards come into play on four holes throughout the round.
Course at a Glance: * 18-hole, par 72 course * Length of 6,560 yards from the tips * Course rating of 72.1 from the tips * Slope rating of 134 from the tips * Three tee options * Scorecard
