Dr. Robert Jackson modifies the way people look, but he also aims to shape the future of cosmetic surgery in the United States. When he's not filling wrinkles, removing fat, or tightening loose skin at Hamilton Surgical Arts, he authors articles for medical journals, plays tic-tac-toe on cocktail napkins, and contributes wisdom to professional organizations that oversee and uphold industry standards. Dr. Jackson works alongside Dr. Chris Lowery, a board-certified doctor of general and cosmetic surgery. The doctors combine their expertise to help clients attain their desired look, whether through minimally invasive or surgical procedures.
The Gonstead concept of chiropractic is based on a simple, clear idea: like any structure, the body has a foundation. The Gonstead method, an advanced technique practiced at Grant Family Chiropractic, directly addresses the body's foundation—the pelvic girdle. Balance in this region leads to stability and balance in the spine, which leads to being able to stand, walk, and topple someone over in order to take over their hopscotch game. Using this method, along with other techniques and treatments, Doctor of Chiropractic Pamela Grant helps to move her clients toward better health. She works alongside licensed massage therapist Adam Johnson, who also aims to provide relief for beleaguered bodies through various massage techniques.

Exercise is challenging, and people frequently give up on their fitness routines. How do you keep clients motivated?
We have multiple different styles of classes, for both strength training and conditioning, and there are constantly new releases of the program styling.
Do you believe in the maxim, "No pain, no gain?? Why or why not?
No, that's a silly expression. It's all about the question, "What are you training for?" Goals are not based off the level of pain a person feels, it's about the results, the lifestyle change, and how the person feels.
What is the biggest mistake you see people make when trying to get fit on their own?
No guidance ([feeling] overwhelmed and not knowing where to start). Ultimately, they get bored and typically give up.
Koko FitClub’s automated personal-training system rockets both men and women toward fitness goals with 30-minute custom workouts that incorporate cardio and strength training. An initial consultation determines fitness level and baseline measurements, which Koko’s computerized equipment uses to design a tailored workout plan that precisely measures the weight, pace, and rest time appropriate for each exerciser.
The Koko machines guide exercisers through each workout and adapt as the user’s fitness needs change, to constantly challenge the body. Designed by professional trainers, workouts maximize the body’s lean-muscle mass, which can boost metabolism and help fight off disease by challenging viruses to kickboxing matches. Exercisers can track their shrinking waistlines and swelling muscles online by analyzing workout scores and comparing individual fitness levels to the Koko FitClub community.
At Hamilton Town Dentistry, David Shock, DDS and his team employ the latest technology to care for patients' teeth and gums. Dr. Shock uses the innovative Smile-Vision system to create computer images of the projected outcome of cosmetic procedures. To allow the patient to see firsthand the work that needs to be done, he illuminates the mouth with the Soprolife Light-Induced Fluorescence Evaluator, whose miniature video camera can also document the tongue’s ability to communicate in sign language. Dr. Shock wields a dental laser as a nonsurgical alternative to treating gum disease, and has specialized training in the placement of traditional implants as well as immediate-load implants that can be placed in a single visit.
