At heart, Doctor of Chiropractic Randall B. Moore of Moore-Life Chiropractic Wellness Center is a family man and a humanitarian. His work reflects his role as a father: after the birth of his daughter, Dr. Moore decided to train in the Webster technique so that he could help expectant mothers. He is also currently studying toward a diplomate in pediatric-chiropractic care. This compassion extends beyond his flesh and blood, too. He hosts an annual food drive and has designated the first Wednesday of each month as Donation Day, in which clients make a payment of their choice, and the doctor donates the proceeds to local charities and patients who cannot afford treatment.
In addition to specializing in pregnancy and infant care, Dr. Moore has extensive training in treating extremity and sports injuries. He and his team enhance the benefits of chiropractic adjustments with services such as massage therapy, acupuncture, and low-level laser therapy, which is designed to accelerate the body's healing process and enable patients to scan grocery barcodes with their fingers.
Though they operate more than 200 locations in upwards of 30 states, the team behind U.S. Baseball Academy aims to make each young athlete's experience a personal one. Their four- or six-week camps are taught by local instructors who are current or former coaches at the high school or college level, and typically offer a 6:1 or better player-to-teacher ratio for intense, professional-style training. The Academy's proven itinerary of hitting, pitching, fielding, and baserunning drills was developed by an advisory board of college coaches and Major League players, including Cy Young Award–winner and ace pitcher Brandon Webb.
As a gymnastics coach, Kaia F.I.T. founder and owner Nikki Warren always noticed how children in motion tumble and play with ease. They were effortlessly agile and flexible, and yet many of them would grow into adults who would struggle to stay active. Kaia F.I.T. sprang from this realization with the goal of restoring female physiques to the adolescent pliability everyone enjoys before they grow their rock-hard exoskeleton after sixth grade.
At Kaia F.I.T. Lafayette, a team of expert fitness coaches retrain bodies with dynamic workouts designed to strengthen muscles, boost energy, and vanquish fat. They root their F.I.T. sessions in functional training, a method that enlists athletes' own body weight and movement to stimulate fitness. They also ramp up their regular F.I.T. program during Brik boot camps, in which students sweat through ever-changing routines to keep their bodies in better shape than fad diets or preserving them in amber for swimsuit season would. Although each program ranges in intensity and length, all workouts and moves can be modified to suit the fitness level of any client. To further help clients reach their fitness goals, the studio makes available a bounty of healthy, flavorful recipes online.
At No Excuses Fit Club, experienced trainers lead small groups of clients through fat-incinerating TRX, boot-camp, and workout-of-the-day sessions. Every class includes a 15-minute break between sessions in which trainers field clients' exercise and nutrition questions.
After an acupuncturist cured a chronic sinus infection that antibiotics did not help, Michele Pimenta discovered the benefits of alternative medicine. She changed her career from a photographer to a facilitator of healing methodologies, and is now a biodynamic craniosacral therapist and certified practitioner of structural integration. Her techniques overall help align the body and balance the nervous system, and specifically treat back pain, neck pain from car accidents, and lingering pain from old football or thumb-wrestling injuries.
Rather than looking at each person as a blank canvas for needle art, acupuncturist Joni Jackson works with her clients to educate them about the ancient treatment and learn about their symptoms, ultimately maximizing the effects of each treatment. During sessions, Joni inserts hair-thin needles to alleviate stressors on the body and psyche. Her sessions work to curb headaches, sleep issues, depression, anxiety, and addictions to tobacco or acupuncture needles.
