Argentina?born soccer enthusiast Gustavo Szulansky opened Super Soccer Stars to provide the boroughs with a program that championed the personal development of youngsters rather than solely a skill-based focus. Since its debut in 2000, it's grown throughout the city, helping countless youngsters learn teamwork, boost confidence, and decrease arguments during home games played on the dining-room table. This rapid growth is due in part to the positive values Gustavo instilled from the first class. His coaches are carefully selected for their ability to cultivate a noncompetitive, sensitive approach to learning the game, and they dole out their knowledge in both classes and camps.
Super Soccer Star's Kick & Play program features family-friendly classes that help tots 12?24 months old develop pre-soccer skills and physical skill sets simultaneously. During classes, a team of talented and enthusiastic instructors and an athletic duo of puppet friends named Mimi and Pepe buoy budding soccer players with positive reinforcement, individual attention, and the merry clickety-clack of cleated tap dances. Designed with the help of early-childhood specialists, each age-specific class helps players build skills at their own pace with positive reinforcement, individual attention, and engaging original music.

When doctors told Brian Chang that he would never fully recover from the injuries he obtained in a car accident, he was undeterred. Instead of accepting the news, he traveled to Asia, where he sought treatment in the form of acupuncture and herbal medicine. After several months of therapy, he began to regain function and even found relief from several of his more incapacitating symptoms. His recovery inspired him to become Dr. Brian Chang, an acupuncturist and practitioner of Classical Chinese Medicine.
In his practice, Dr. Chang uses a holistic approach that addresses the underlying causes behind clients' symptoms, restoring a sense of balance to the body's natural energies (or chi). During acupuncture sessions, he accomplishes this by inserting hair-thin needles into key spots along the body, removing any blockages that interfere with the flow of these energies and helping alleviate everything from musculoskeletal pain to emotional stress from not knowing what it's like to be a pin cushion. While acupuncture is his core service, Dr. Chang offers treatments such as essential-oil therapy, cupping, and moxibustion as well.
