For more than 24 years, Dr. Ivan Ramos has helped locals boost their health and confidence with medically designed weight-loss programs and minimally invasive aesthetic procedures. Certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine, the doctor held residencies in internal and critical-care medicine before opening up his private clinic. The clinic's many laser-based aesthetic treatments—ranging from laser liposuction and anti-aging facials to spider-vein treatments and anatomical laser tag—use the Cynosure Affirm laser system, equipped with three levels of pulsed-light energy. Doctor-designed weight-loss programs reflect the staff's dedication: in addition to weekly check-ups and customized nutrition plans, every patient can count on a round-the-clock support system for motivation, advice, and inspirational haiku.

At 17 years old, David Pearce spent his nights dancing and DJing in a slick Seattle club. When his best friend recognized his skills and suggested David join him as a daytime ballroom-dance instructor, he was unenthusiastic⎯until a visit to his friend's studio made David realize that ballroom dancing involved nothing but sleek movements and squiring ladies across the floor. He’s been hooked ever since. David opened The Studio with his wife, Jackie, who leads belly and hula dancing, and the pair demonstrates swing, Argentine tango, and other American ballroom dances with help from four other instructors.
Private lessons begin with David’s signature teaching style, which condenses every ballroom step into four basic movements and instills the fundamentals of leading and following before finally acquainting students with the dance style of their choice. Meanwhile, group lessons introduce hoofers to new moves in a lively and relaxed social-dancing atmosphere. Monthly parties, which often follow elaborate themes—such as a luau with leis, photo props, and decorations dappling the studio’s baby-blue walls—invite couples to twirl, sip refreshments, and eventually follow fellow revelers to nearby nightclubs or a Disney prince's ballroom to show off their versatile moves in a real-world setting.
Many people are guilty of putting undue pressure on their bodies, but probably not 405 pounds worth. Doctor of Chiropractic Chad Filimon hoisted that much weight to claim a state weightlifting championship in high school, giving him a first-hand perspective on the body's limitations and the strength to shoulder half the medical partnership of Advanced Chiropractic Associates, Inc. His partner, Doctor of Chiropractic Joseph Ferrantelli, literally wrote the book––two textbooks in fact––on the clinic's preferred method of treatment, Clinical Biomechanics of Posture (CBP), a method that aims to balance areas of pain or injury with mirror-image adjustments and exercises that focus on the alignment of the entire spine. The doctors also specialize in decompression therapy, on-site massage, laser therapy for chronic pain or depressed cats, and auto-accident-injury treatment, for which Dr. Ferrantelli has attended numerous continuing-education seminars.
