Lead by 25-year martial-arts veteran Durwyn Lamb, the instructors at Phalanx MMA Academy are actual fighters and competitors. Each of them posts a winning record in their respective art, from MMA tournaments to wrestling. Yet, they're not brutes; each member of the team has been selected not only for their first-hand experience in the ring, but for their personality and ability to work with kids and adults alike. Instructors teach a variety of classes, from combat-focused Brazilian jujitsu and muay thai classes to cardio- and kickboxing-fitness sessions.
Licensed doctor of naturopathic medicine Judy Hinojosa-Sinks begins each treatment at Naturopathic Vitality Wellness Center the same way: with research. Before drafting a wellness plan, she may check for food allergies, analyze body-composition statistics, view hormone and toxicity levels, or all of the above. This commitment to sound research not only warms the hearts of bibliographers but also helps engender correct diagnoses for ailments ranging from irritable bowel syndrome to anxiety. Dr. Hinojosa-Sinks and her certified assistants then combat these conditions with treatments such as acupuncture, hydrotherapy, and herbal medicine.
