Vibrant red, yellow, and blue walls envelop a plethora of weightlifting and cardio machines in Body & Soul Core Fitness’s main room. While lifting barbells or twirling legs atop treadmills, patrons can watch flat-screen TVs or peek through the windows into the cardio-kickboxing room lined with red heavy bags swinging under the force of swift kicks and punches. The gym’s classes also include Zumba, DanceSports, spinning, and circuit training. Those interested in more individualized attention can take part in one-on-one personal-training sessions with the gym’s experienced instructors.
Cristina Queiroz specializes in gentle hair removal utilizing a sugaring technique in order to give her clients the closest possible wax without lingering irritation. In addition to performing her specialization on the Brazilian region, she provides sugar hair removal for men, as well. She also provides spray tans, chemical peels, and facials.
Dr. Scott Erichsen believes that wellness is the result of a very specific cocktail—one part chiropractic care, one part acupuncture, and one part massage. He and his staff administer these treatments at the Erichsen Family Chiropractic & Wellness Center, where the approach centers around encouraging and trusting the body's natural healing mechanisms. Dr. Erichsen handles the chiropractic element by consulting with clients and adjusting spines to correct subluxations, or misalignments in the vertebrae. Acupuncture sessions, meanwhile, arrange hair-thin needles along the body to balance its flow of energy, thereby easing issues such as headaches, digestive problems, and stress. Massage therapist Joan Lee is the final ingredient. Her sessions target tense muscles and send guests into a state of physical and mental calm.
The center also offers weight-loss services outside of its signature treatment-trio. The Ideal Protein program helps participants to burn fat as they adopt a healthier lifestyle, teaching them what foods to avoid and how to effectively pole vault over the dessert section of the grocery store.
After more than 30 years as a registered nurse, Karin Johnson decided that she wanted to continue helping people, but in a new way. She then became intrigued by Chinese medicine, and later founded AcuSource Healing as a way to treat patients with a more personal, holistic approach. The center’s diverse staff––which includes an occupational therapist, nutritionist, and licensed massage therapist––makes pain a distant memory with services such as cupping, acupuncture, sotai, and foot reflexology. Through hair mineral analysis, the team can find the presence of heavy metals that can make bodies feel sluggish and convince brains that they enjoy Black Sabbath. Microlight rejuvenation, meanwhile, boosts collagen production and smoothes fine lines and wrinkles.
The massage therapists and aestheticians at Royal Serene House shun noxious odors and synthetic compounds for spa products that are natural and organic. The result is most immediately noticed by the nose, as the fragrance of lime leaf, apricot, and mango body scrubs swirl through the air while their sugars slough off dead skin cells. Mud from the Baltic Sea, seaweed from Norway, and Bohemian black organic fango clay keep facials free of chemicals as they draw out toxins and oils.
