Inside the treatment room of Lotus Affordable Acupuncture, clients relax in their own recliner, their own buffer zone of personal space, and cover up with their own blankets—but they heal as a community. In China, community acupuncture is the norm, and acupuncturist Kelly H. Hahn’s adheres to this traditional approach. Kelly walks between the recliners administering sterile, hair-thin needles to the legs, feet, hands, and face while clients relax amid soft music for 20 to 45 minutes.

In CKO Kickboxing’s action-packed classes, students wail away at heavy, hanging punching bags, working out stress while building muscles with every punch and kick. Because the bags are so heavy, they add significant resistance into the workout, toning up muscles more effectively than punching slabs of beef and then eating the evidence. During the 60-minute classes, students rotate between cardio and strength training, bolstering heart-rates and targeting arms, legs, and cores.
For Esther Piskunov, teaching Zumba doesn't feel like a job—it feels like a party. That's because she pumps international tunes during her classes, and choreographs spicy dance moves that students of all skill levels can follow. During each one-hour workout, students torch calories in a fun and supportive environment.
