At North Creek Medicine, Dr. Mark Swyer and his trained staff treat the body both inside and out with their range of health and beauty services. Laser technicians harness the dual power of the el?s system, which uses radio and light frequencies to gently, yet effectively, eliminate unwanted hair and diminish rosacea, spider veins, and other epidermal flaws. The team also welcomes the entire family into their care for gunnysack races and preventative medical screenings. Aside from physical wellbeing, the center cares for mental health with psychiatric counseling for adults and teens.
Also known as DJ O'Please, Micheal Eddings has turned the tables for everything from break-dance competitions to car shows to wedding receptions to skating rinks. Though DJ’ing is his specialty, he doesn't limit himself to just the music: he also runs live fantasy-football drafts to get leagues started with a bang.
Snohomish County's largest full-service family athletic club, Columbia Athletic Clubs has something for everyone. One hundred group exercise classes are offered each week; Cycle Cross takes place in the cycling studio while Water Aerobics and Aqua Motion utilize the Big Pool. Hot yoga and classes in the Mind/Body Studio come included with each membership. There's also an indoor Salt-Pure lap pool for advanced swimmers and shiny-sunken-object-retrievers. A talented group of personal trainers work with clients to get the most out of every workout.
The club's amenities extend beyond pure fitness. The Silver Lake Cafe serves up healthy and tasty meals, and massage therapy is offered onsite. At the Kids Club, youngens can play games under the supervision of an experienced staff while parents hit the gym.
All Rice Thai Hut neither resides in a hut nor serves only rice, but the name aptly encapsulates the chefs' casual Thai food. They prepare a large range of dishes, including their signature fried rice medley of jasmine rice with eggs, prawns, barbecue pork, Chinese sausage, pineapple, and veggies. Other specialties include the deluxe seafood curry and the golden noodle beef, which features chili-spiced steak on a bed of crispy egg noodles that are considered just as valuable as gold bullion in certain regions of France.
In the fitness industry, only a select few exercise pioneers enjoy widespread name recognition. Bikram Choudhury is one of them, and the instructors of Bikram Yoga Everett have earned that name by enduring his legendary nine-week training course. The program also keeps yogis on their toes by requiring recertification every three years. In the intense training sessions, aspiring instructors learn to make use of a heated environment to push the mental focus and muscular endurance of students during the 90-minute classes.
The Bikram Yoga Everett Studio welcomes visitors with a lobby bursting in bright primary colors and a spacious workout room swathed in natural sunlight. The computer-controlled temperature remains evenly regulated throughout the space, and a ventilation system provides a constant supply of fresh air, occasionally pumping in helium for cartoon voiceover workshops. Floors are covered in Zebra yoga mats that dramatically reduce joint strain.
Shortly after Shivani Kant, DDS, graduated from the University of Washington School of Dentistry, she went about 15 miles north and opened Puget Park Dental. There, she and her staff run a family-friendly, community-minded practice that provides teeth cleaning, crown cementing, and cavity filling, among other general-dentistry duties. The practice works to keep kids comfortable with a play area and a post-appointment prize.
