The experts at Healing Laser Centers can ease pain without a single touch. That's because they harness the healing power of the cold laser, a device that sends low levels of energy deep into strained and injured muscles to jump-start the healing process. In each 5- to 20-minute treatment, staffers suffuse the body with this powerful light energy to relieve pain caused by work stresses, athletic endeavors, or attempts to give itself a back massage. Many patients feel nothing during the treatment and often feel progressively better for days afterward. To enhance the technology's muscle-mending capabilities, the center also keeps massage therapists on staff for hands-on tension relief.
Aqua-Tots Swim School trains and encourages swimmers in the art of buoyancy through its array of services, specializing in instructing those aged 6 months–12 years in small groups. Instructors boast national certification, completing 32 hours in the company’s Lessons for Life training program and successfully completing the Water Safety Instructor exam.
Children are placed in one of eight class levels, from Tadpoles (6 months–18 months), which acquaints infants with the pool, to Stingrays, which is for children who have more experience and want to refine their strokes and one day sting a jellyfish. Each individual class contains no more than four students training under the watchful eye of the instructor in a climate-controlled indoor pool. In addition to the children’s program, Aqua-Tots Swim Schools also leads adult swim classes and provides training for both swim competition and first aid.

Safe, comfortable spinal adjustment is Ballard Chiropractic Clinic’s bread and butter. The clinic treats scoliosis, pinched nerves, and subluxation, among other conditions, and specializes in helping patients recover from auto accidents. However, chiropractic services are far from the practice’s sole healing treatment. After adjustments, clients can maintain the soothing effects at home with customized exercises learned in-office. Alternatively, lifestyle coaching and nutritional counseling teach patrons which activities and foods to steer clear of and which to embrace for optimum wellness. For some extra doting, they can opt for a paraffin bath, moist-heat therapy, or massage.
The students at West Cobb Martial Arts know that a fight isn't won with a series of memorized punches and kicks. That's because they learn how to apply each goju-ryu karate technique to a real-life situation. While their instructor imparts wisdom gained from more than a decade of experience, they build strength and coordination. Trim waistlines lead to bolstered confidence, and longer attention spans make it possible to read all the way to the end of recipes, avoiding any future birthday-cake tragedies.
