As a registered yoga school with the Yoga Alliance and International Association of Yoga Therapists, KCFitnessLink regularly mints new instructors. The fitness company advances students through 200- or 500-hour programs that yield certifications in various styles including Hatha and Vinyasa. In addition to transforming students into teachers, KCFitnessLink empowers people to become healthier and happier. Corporate wellness programs bring relief to stressed-out employees by integrating massage, yoga, and retreats to naturally occurring water coolers. Alternatively, personal-training sessions tackle individual goals such as weight management and sports conditioning. Replete with drop-in yoga and boot-camp sessions, KCFitnessLink's class schedule caters to athletes of all abilities. Massage therapy, available in several modalities, keeps muscles limber and free of knots.
Kandy Grimes owes much of her success as a massage therapist to her first career: registered nurse. At Massage for Wellness, she and her team aim for goals beyond relaxation as they banish soreness from clients' muscles. Their modalities range from Swedish and Deep-Tissue to Myofascial Release and Trigger Point techniques, all of which can impart health benefits to stressed bodies.
But communication factors into each massage as much as an adherence to form. During medical massages, for example, they discuss the sources of chronic pain and other ailments, then tailor the massage to address overworked or injured areas. Kandy and her staff also administer specialty services, such as massages for elderly clients, sports massages that improve athletic performance, as well as prenatal and infant massage classes, where parents can learn how to connect with their baby through touch instead of email.
Licensed aesthetician Erica Munoz, owner of Spa Catalina, helms a staff of beauty maestros, who conduct a symphony of skin-sprucing treatments. Erica has studied under Dr. Doris Day, a board-certified doctor and frequent guest on Good Morning America. And Spa Catalina's laser technicians each achieved national certification in laser technology before they began setting to work removing unwanted hair or etching their initials in the moon. Laser hair-removal treatments toast follicular pigment with intense light energy, shutting down strand-production factories without harming the surrounding tissue. When they aren't zapping epidermises, Spa Catalina's experts mollycoddle visages with facials, ease the appearance of aging through microdermabrasion and dermaplaning, and swaddle corpuses in relaxing body wraps.
The chiropractors at Fountain of Life Chiropractic address chronic pain with adjustments and strive to correct problems via posture correction while also helping patients make changes to nutrition and lifestyle. They also relieve muscular and skeletal maladies with spinal decompression as well as massage performed by certified massage therapists. These treatments have been known to cure afflictions other than back pain, and include maladies such as allergies, headaches, and sciatica.
Before developing Elite Ceuticals Non Surgical Face Lift, the owner spent more than 20 years formulating skincare products for other companies. Armed with that experience, she creates skincare blends that stimulate and revive aging skin with aloe vera that's grown hydroponically—that is, fed a regimen of minerals and vitamins and never treated with pesticides or put through a laminating machine.
The follicular technicians at Brow Threading whisk away facial hair with a removal procedure that's more precise than waxing, plucking, or facial-hair immolation. During the five-minute treatment, one of Brow Threading's hair-removal heroes employs intertwined pieces of thread, which trap follicles and pull them out in the same direction by the root. Hair removal lasts up to four weeks, demolishing unwanted soul patches or sculpting eyebrows into a permanent state of surprise.
