Dr. Nazila Doroodian and her team of dental hygienists pamper grins with modern technology and spa-like amenities designed to keep clients comfortable and relaxed. Guests slip their hands into paraffin gloves as their backs undulate to the beat of a massage mat's rolling strokes. During the exam and cleaning, hygienists maneuver intraoral cameras to discover decay and lost lottery tickets before gently sweeping away debris and snapping a few low-radiation digital x-rays.
Board-certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Umang Mehta may specialize in rhinoplasty and other facial and eye surgeries, but his practice’s treatment list extends far beyond these services. He and his staff, including a licensed aesthetician, also deliver wrinkle fillers, laser cosmetics, and peels. After visits, complexions leave youthful and glowing like a phosphorescent corsage on prom night, and testimonials reveal that clients appreciate the team’s friendliness as much as they value their aesthetic expertise.

They specialize in motivational personal training, as well as athlete-inspired performance training classes that perform functional movements at high intensities.

Owner and instructor Christina Kish spent 15 years applying the skills she learned earning an M.B.A. to work in high-tech marketing and co-founding the DVD-delivery service NetFlix. Despite her achievements in business fields, she feels an even greater passion coaching others to meet their fitness goals and gain personal confidence. She now has a team of enthusiastic instructors who build students' flexibility and endurance in dynamic pole and aerial fabric-based workouts.
The 3,200-square-foot studio sports four aerial fabric, two corde lisse, and 12 aerial hammock mounts for indoor dangling and ten permanent, 20-foot poles for students to practice movement-based tricks, dance moves, and crime-fighting techniques. Instructors guide students through mid-air acrobatics on poles and aerial ropes, or blend yoga and Pilates into aerial hammock training. While most of Poletential's classes cater to women, aerial and power pole sessions also allow men to escape gravity's crushing bear hugs.
Doctor of Chiropractic Benjamin Manuel founded Mid-Peninsula Chiropractic following a tenure of treating pro athletes and regular patients alike. Today he uses that diverse experience to help his clients overcome chronic or injury-related pain. Following a consultation, the doctor examines the spine, snaps x-rays if necessary, and performs the most apt treatment to kick the body into a self-healing frenzy. Treatment varies by patient, but it could entail cold-laser therapy, an adjustment to correct spinal misalignments, or electrical stimulation.
