At Laser Therapy Spa, technicians and aestheticians enroll in ongoing education classes to make sure their services stay on the cutting edge. The dual-focus spa encompasses two main branches. One centers around laser treatments performed with Harmony XL or Accent XL lasers, which can be calibrated to minimize unwanted hair or skin blemishes or to tighten lax skin on the face or body. The other side of the center focuses on traditional spa services, including massages and facials administered with Obagi and SkinMedica products. The spa even has a hyberbaric oxygen chamber, which clients can hop into during immune-boosting oxygen-therapy treatments or during a game of hide-and-seek with the office staff.
Martin Joo and David Clarke have been fighters for a long time, and also have years of experience in mixed martial arts and fitness training. They decided to take their skills outside the cage by training other fighters to have the skill, fitness, and courage to follow in their footsteps. So they founded Omni Combat Fitness, where classes focus on a broad range of fighting styles as well as fitness techniques. Trainers might combine boxing and jiujitsu in a single class, or move from a plyometric workout to sparring in the ring to teaching the proper technique for launching tomatoes in a food fight.
