The holistic experts at Optimum Health fuse Western medicine and alternative therapies to tackle clients? health and wellness concerns. While chiropractors identify and treat disorders of the musculoskeletal and nervous systems, physical rehab specialists treat injuries and disabilities by crafting custom protocols composed of therapeutic exercises, hot and cold therapies, and neuromuscular re-education. Similarly, skilled massage therapists employ deep-tissue, myofascial, and trigger-point therapies to loosen and restore tense sinews. Doctors and nurse practitioners target pain at its source rather than merely covering up the symptoms with painkillers or a plastic tarp. Additionally, Optimum Health's specialists craft custom treatment plans for patients struggling with weight loss, nutrition, and stress as they target the underlying causes of health issues.

Former Georgia PGA Teacher of the Year, Jim Goergen has guided the game improvement of students ranging from amateurs to the PGA Tour. Whether coaching a first-time player, US Amateur Champion and PGA professional Matt Kuchar, or a sentient 6-iron, Jim seeks to hone what he calls the game’s true fundamentals. Boiled down to their most essential components, good swing mechanics consist of a single-plane swing of the club shaft, a square clubface through impact, and an athletic movement to make them happen in unison. All other variables, such as grip, posture, and takeaway, can only enhance the true fundamentals. Additionally, Jim places a great deal of emphasis on the short game, where the average golfer can make the largest improvements in number of strokes and number of putters saved from an angry knee smash.
Golf Instructor John Marshall can hit the golf ball a long way. While some "big hitters" are merely the product of boasting, John has the hardware to back it up. He won the American Long Drivers Association Super Senior National Championship in '05 And '06, and is a five-time RE/MAX World Long Drive Championship finalist.
These unconventional results come from a somewhat unconventional method. John has long used?and now teaches?a swing developed by legendary long driver Mike Austin, who once crushed a 515-yard drive at the 1974 U.S. Senior Open, the longest ever recorded in competition. As an instructor at Steel Canyon Golf Club, John illuminates the principles behind this swing that generate high club head speed without sacrificing accuracy. Lessons combine one-on-one coaching to help students get comfortable with the technique, which is likely a little different from the swing they're used to.
