In his more than 20 years as a chiropractor, Dr. Charles Knight has learned that the more time he spends with a patient, the easier it is to personalize their treatment plan. That’s why he carves out an hour for first-time patients who visit Knight Gamble Chiropractic, giving him ample time to learn about their health history, perform an examination, and grade them on how well they remembered their own health history on the exam. He specializes in treating patients who suffer from headaches, nerve pain, whiplash injuries, sports-related injuries, and TMJ.
Bikram Yoga Grand Central's Bikram-certified instructors preside over three to six classes each day inside an eco-friendly, 1,200-square-foot studio in Midtown. During the detoxifying yoga sessions, thermostats climb to a sultry 105 degrees in order to limber limbs for 26 different poses. As Half Moon poses loosen obliques and Cobra poses arch backs, a poly-extruded floor accelerates evaporation to keep the space dry and bacteria-free, preventing yogis from having to don uncomfortable hazmat suits during class. Changing rooms and showers help students to smoothly transition between the studio's balmy domain and their next engagements. An expansive, wind-kissed terrace and panoramic windows gird a foyer equipped with Flotex flooring that boasts antimicrobial and waterproof properties.
The licensed massage therapists at N2Health ease muscle tension & promote blood circulation during 60-minute custom massages using Swedish and deep-tissue techniques suitable for each client. The patron can choose a male or female massage therapist, who consults both muscles and their owner to establish pressure preference and choice of oil or lotion in the comfort of a private room. Skilled hands perform long, fluid strokes to ease tension in tight appendages, and circular motion and vibration improve blood circulation throughout the body. As muscles steep in rejuvenated bliss, patrons can inquire about N2Health’s chiropractic and weight-loss programs or interview the potted cactus in the corner on the many benefits of the office’s acupuncture services (not valid with today's Groupon).

Started as a single Newport Beach clinic in 1971, Lindora was the brainchild of Dr. Marshall Stamper, who was motivated by the unfortunate loss of his mother due to weight-related complications. Now, more than 40 years later, Lindora's weight-loss programs continue to bestow humanoids with a plethora of personalized nutrition plans and private one-on-one health consultations. At each Lindora location, medically trained teams of health-care professionals guide patients through lab work, health assessments, and exams to discern the most efficient trajectory into better health. Patients receive encouragement to adjust their lifestyle and behavior, and bellies stay buoyed by nutrition support and menu plans that spotlight fresh, balanced meals.
Long-term weight maintenance is the goal of the clinic's medically based programs, which means patients needn't worry about extra pounds boomeranging back into their lives like a persistent pet chinchilla. Check the FAQs page here for more information about Lindora's approach to weight loss.
