That's because each dentist is certified in a range of specialized treatment, including cosmetic dentistry, gum disease treatment, and teeth straightening. The centres also administer emergency care to deal with with intense pain or dumb, wisdom-less molars.
Extreme Fitness sets Toronto's calories ablaze at the 13 renovated, multimillion-dollar locations peppered throughout the greater suburban area. Each facility hosts a menagerie of group fitness classes, which can be taken à la carte or bundled into a gym membership. Muscles loosen up in hot-yoga classes or bulge into sinewy symbols of might in outdoor boot camps, where students soak up vitamin D or distill Capri Sun from the sun's rays. To make sure members get the most of the gym's myriad amenities, personal trainers kick off fitness journeys with their Smart Start program, taking BMI measurements and analyzing heart health and oxygen uptake to give patrons a clearer picture of how much and what types of exercise they need to hit their goals.
After working up a calorie-blasting sweat, members can retire to the steam rooms or whirlpool tubs to soothe sore muscles. The internet business lounge lets people catch up on email while sipping a rejuvenating smoothie from the juice bar, and the basketball courts host pick-up games where adults can show underdog teams of fifth-graders that it takes a little more than pluck and an adorable animal sidekick to win games.
Moksha hot yoga is a unique yoga series that combines the precision of therapeutic yoga and the foundations of traditional yoga in a specially heated room. The series is a cardiovascular workout that strengthens, tones and loosens the muscles, while calming the mind and reducing stress.
"I now use many of the noninvasive medical services I offer at my clinics to fight the aging process. I have personally never felt or looked better and I am now in my forties," says Eleanor Welsh, founder of Skin Vitality Medical Clinic. Using Elos laser and radio frequency technology, her team of registered nurses and registered practical nurses is able to reshape bodies, erase body hair, and tighten skin with the push of a button. Their skill with beauty injectables comes from extensive training from Allergan and other pharmaceutical companies, giving them the deft ability to leave clients' faces more youthful than a rosebud in a sippy cup. For more dramatic results, Dr. Conor B. Turley performs cosmetic surgeries such as tucks, augmentations, and lifts.

In addition to chiropractic care, the crew strives to restore patient health with acupuncture services and detoxifying foot baths.

At Pro Dojos, certified martial-arts experts lead students of all ages and skill levels through a variety of pugilistic disciplines. Each location is independently owned, so the martial-arts styles may vary, but many offer karate, tae kwon do, kick-boxing, aikido, and jujitsu classes. The instructors elucidate the noble combat arts to kiddos as young as 4 years old, helping them build strength and motor skills while instilling the values of self-confidence. Teen classes focus on honing discipline and treating yourself and others with respect, and adult classes reinforce cardiovascular conditioning, strength, balance, and coordination. The instructors also lead classes for the whole family, allowing them to bond as a unit, which could possibly lead to starring in a hit sitcom about a crime-fighting family who takes down comical villains in their idyllic suburban neighborhood.
Since 1970, Bay Cycle and Sports has been spiffing up spokes and sharpening blades via the hands of an experienced staff. The 8,000-square-foot showroom contains a massive selection of bikes, hockey sticks, and bikes dressed like hockey sticks. Handlebars gleam once donned in useful accessories, such as a Sigma computer to track speed and mileage (starting at $22.99), and the release of bikes from garage dungeons calls for celebratory services, such as a minor tune-up by trained mechanics ($44.99). Bring ice slicers to their spikiest with 10 hockey skate sharpenings ($40), or check out the new Louis Garneau clothing showroom to augment a sluggish wardrobe’s whiny attitude.
