Since 2003, Advanced Health & Wellness' resident chiropractor, Dr. Kyle LeBlanc, has unburdened spines of all their aches and pains. During complimentary consultations, the certified doctor discusses each patient's health concerns, and suggests the most effective course of treatment. For patients recovering from auto accidents, for instance, that means chiropractic sessions that help reduce inflammation and increase range of motion.
Dr. Kyle's expertise isn't limited to chiropractic, though—he employs plenty of other soothing modalities, from trigger-point therapy to electric stimulation. In addition to healing pain-stricken patients, Dr. Kyle and his team help clients learn to care for themselves through educational events, such as chiropractic seminars.
Jazzercise is 60 minutes of cardio, strength training, and stretching that incorporates moves from hip-hop, yoga, Pilates, jazz dance, kickboxing, and resistance training with handheld weights. Dancing with the Stars' two-time champion Cheryl Burke is a big fan of Jazzercise's improvisational workouts, though luckily you won't need her dance moves to get the most out of your class. If you're prone to first-class jitters, though, you can review the basic moves online before you go. Expect to burn off up to 600 calories with each go-round.
After founding Yoga to Go Studio in 2008, certified instructor Linda Jones passed the baton to Kynan Katzman, one of her long-time students. The transition merited a profile by Mehlville-Oakville Patch_, partly because of Katzman’s impressive resumé, which includes endurance cycling. Under the leadership of both Jones and Katzman, the studio has introduced budding yogis to Anusara and Hatha yoga, as well as several forms of meditation geared toward students of all experience levels.
At the helm of the Sheen Vein Institute stands board-certified physician Dr. Vidal Sheen, a specialist in non-surgical varicose vanquishing. Affected hipsticks first undergo an initial consultation and mapping, where the dermal doc will evaluate the patient's medical history in order to cater treatments to each individual case. Dr. Sheen then coaxes arachnoid veins from their not-so-secret hiding spots using sclerotherapy—an FDA-approved treatment that breaks up offending veins using a safe, injectable solution and a sensitive yet firm text message. Visually or ultrasonically guided, the liquid or foam injections are virtually pain-free and patients suffer no downtime, allowing lives to resume and workplace kick-line competitions to commence as planned. The office’s protocol suggests patients receive three check-ups within the first year of the injections, making certain gams stay glamorous and healthy for as long as possible.

Visitors peruse more than 800 bikes in stock, enjoying free on-site assembly before wheeling their new toy off the lot. New rides include complimentary adjustments for one year, whereas all services—including tune-ups, flat-tire fixes, and chest bumps on the way out the door—also carry a 90-day warranty.
