Glendale Chiro Care's treatment center feels more like a day spa than a medical office. Warm yellow walls lit with soft ceiling lights guide patients to the front desk, where a friendly staff member sits surrounded by therapeutic products, wood-stained furniture, and electric guitars. Relaxation is paramount in the treatment rooms, where Doctor of Chiropractic Gassia Titizian eases any anxieties about her methods before she and her staff ease bodily stresses with acupuncture, chiropractic, nutrition-counseling, and massage treatments. They tend to patients of all ages, including children and those who've just given birth or swallowed an entire watermelon.
Aveda products are as renowned for their plant-based ingredients and eco-friendly packaging as they are for their beautification prowess, so it’s no surprise that the experts behind Glendale Aveda Salonspa rely on them during each of their styling treatments. Armed with their botanical tinctures, the salon’s stylists, mold manes with marshmallow-root texture lotions and lather locks with aromatic shampoos and conditioners. They also tint hair with colors infused with plant oils that subdue damage and leave each strand shiny and healthy. These hues come in natural blonds, browns, and reds, as well as primary and secondary colors distilled from sustainably harvested crayons. On the other side, spa staffers also reach for Aveda products—including hydrators and cleansers—as they clarify and rebalance careworn epidermises. When they aren't nourishing clients, the stylists at Glendale Aveda Salonspa attend weekly classes to hone their skills. They also donate their time to nonprofit organizations, such as the Coalition for Clean Air and the Glendale Health Fair.

With certifications in chiropractic medicine, oriental medicine, and acupuncture, Dr. T. Jimmy Kazandjian utilizes a holistic approach to health and wellness when treating clients. The National Institutes of Health concluded in 1997 that acupuncture is an effective treatment for a variety of conditions, including asthma, allergies, headaches, menstrual cramps, and back pain. Even fiddle-fit specimens of health can benefit from acupuncture treatment, as it is known to boost the immune system—just in time for flu season. The treatment is paired with a vigorous 30-minute acupressure massage, which stimulates specific trigger points to normalize blood flow and alleviate areas of pain.
With decades of experience to speak for their haircutting prowess, the stylists at Universal Cut & Beauty Supply cut, style, and condition hair for women, men, and children. They can also add vibrancy to new 'dos with highlights and color, or fight frizz with Brazilian Blowout keratin treatments that eliminate the need to wear a floral swim cap on dry land.
Energetic music and excited dancers fill Heartbeat House in Atwater Village throughout the day. The entire wall facing the sidewalk is made up of windows partially covered by sheer curtains – still, with the thumping of feet and inescapable rhythms, you can’t help but look inside to find a well-appointed studio space, open and airy. Depending on the day and time, you might catch an eyeful Zumba, kids’ hip hop dance or the genre-mixing Yoga Booty Ballet. All levels of experience are welcome, and instructors do their best to include everyone and to provide a fun expressive dance class. These non-competitive classes keep a vibrant, upbeat atmosphere, drawing in the progressively hip neighborhood who would like to tone and sculpt without dragging themselves to the gym. Monthly class passes are available, as are cheaper weekly classes, like a seven dollar community yoga that ensures there’s room for everyone.
