Doctors Weihua Wang and Guoji Wu both graduated from Beijing University of Chinese Medicine with a major in acupuncture. Dr. Wang went on to work as a licensed acupuncturist in China for 10 years, treating conditions such as insomnia and chronic pain, and Dr. Wu went on to get his Ph.D. in medicine.
Now, at Green Point Acupuncture, they both practice community acupuncture in a large treatment room outfitted with five tables. They see multiple patients an hour, using hair-thin needles to help the body expunge toxins, boost the immune system, and pick up HBO legally. This method of treating multiple patients at once allows them to keep acupuncture costs down.
Gregg's Cycle has been bike-riders' resource since 1932. Now owned by its third generation of Greggs, the shop occupies multiple locations, and has occupied a well-worn page in cyclists' address books for decades.

At Cosmetic Surgical Arts Center, owner and triple board-certified surgeon Dr. Donald Wortham uses his expertise and certifications in cosmetic, facial plastic and reconstructive, and head-and-neck surgery to sculpt and contour bodies during a range of surgical procedures. Because plastic surgery is a weighty decision, the doctor strives to inform each patient about the details about their desired service and tailor each procedure to the patient receiving it. A thorough presurgical consultation not only helps the patient understand their procedure, but also informs the physician about the patient's aesthetic concerns. With this knowledge, the surgeon devises a custom treatment plan and presents it to the patient through detailed discussion and spirited rounds of Pictionary.
Since 1996, a medical aesthetician has helmed Cosmetic Surgical Arts Center's full-service med spa. To ensure clients get the best effects, the aesthetician personally researches and evaluates many skincare lines before offering them for purchase. They remove unwanted hair with a LightSheer laser and perform a slate of Aromatic spa facials, clinical chemical peels, and microdermabrasion treatments.
Dr. Rebecca Long didn’t always want to be a doctor, but family ties drew her into the profession. At her sister Dr. Lara Long’s graduation, her father delivered an inspiring commencement address that included a story about how chiropractic helped to heal an infant. In that moment, Rebecca realized that she could help just as many kids by becoming a chiropractor, and, three weeks later, moved to California to start at Life Chiropractic College West.
Today, along with colleague Dr. Michael Groves, the Long sisters practice chiropractic medicine out of their eponymous clinic. Their services range from spinal correction to nutritional counseling. They perform these services for patients of all ages who suffer from sports, auto, or pogo-stick injuries. All three doctors share a passion for volunteering and bringing chiropractic to foreign countries, and together they hope to one day open a clinic in Africa to help children suffering from AIDS.
David Kadzielewski spent 15 years as a trainer and a manager in several big gyms. Over and over, he saw a pattern repeat itself: the gyms would become impersonal, customers would tire of mass mailings, and individual attention would be replaced with a one-size-fits-all approach to fitness. So David set out to do something different: he founded
Latitude 47 Fitness , whose comparatively smaller size and higher levels of personal attention help programs stay client-focused. The fitness side of Xhale features equipment, such as cardio machines and treadmills that can be bench-pressed, along with classes and personal training. Wellness experts also offer nutritional guidance. Spa treatments include massage and saunas. While parents work out or get a tan, kids can roam free in a supervised play area.
The continually educated mouth specialists of Sunshine Dental keep smiles healthy with a tag team of preventative dentistry and modern technology. During the appointment, a licensed dentist scours the mouth for signs of decay, cavities, and lost gummy bears (a $97 value) with an attention to detail normally only exhibited by pickleball referees. X-rays, including four bitewings, an extraoral, and a panoramic (a $234 total value), allow the certified tooth whisperer to inspect cuisine crushers in greater depth in a set of black-and-white snapshots. Take-home whitening treatments evict the yellow from teeth with stain-fighting bleach and a sheriff-delivered court order. Mouths that return dutifully to the dental office every six months for a checkup receive additional treatments for free.
