The saying "practice makes perfect" couldn't ring more true for nutritionist Sadhana Bahl, who spent 1,380 hours training to become a licensed paramedical aesthetician. The owner of Adonia Skin Wellness Spa works alongside aesthetician J. Brooke Thurmond, an advanced medical skincare specialist who also clocked 1,380 hours of training, in her quest to develop the skills necessary to treat and correct common skin disorders. Together, Team Adonia tackles everything from rosacea to enlarged pores using advanced aesthetic treatments and products from Image Skincare and PCA Skin. The spa's corrective facials are customized to each client’s skin type, and the signature Indian herb facial uses ayurvedic principles and ingredients such as turmeric, sandalwood, and aloe vera to balance the skin. Bahl and Thurmond also foster glowing complexions by exfoliating the epidermis with crystal or diamond microdermabrasion treatments or with LED light therapy, which uses blue light to kill bacteria and make acne feel so sad it leaves.
The NRA-certified instructors teach at indoor and outdoor ranges.
Depending on the class, shooters use different calibers of handguns, such as .22, .380, 9 millimeter, and a .38 revolver.
Before becoming state- and NRA-certified firearms instructors, each Elite Tactical Training team member worked in law enforcement or the US Army. They draw from these experiences to teach safety during one-on-one, group, and women's-only classes that incorporate scenarios. To deal with each simulated situation, the experts teach their clients––who range from civilians to law-enforcement officers––to select a suitable caliber, safely handle their chosen firearm, and practice self-defense techniques.
Each Eye Doctor’s Optical Outlets location is doctor-owned, uniting the staff with a common vision to sharpen sight and boost eye health. Eye examinations reveal prescriptions and uncover any other ocular problems. After patients choose a new set of lenses, the in-house technicians get to work crafting them in the shop’s own lab rather than sending them off to be made during a summer camp’s arts and crafts day. Sundry designer frames border eyes in looks from Giorgio Armani and Marc Jacobs to Nike and Harley Davidson, and there is usually a trio of technicians in the shop, enabling multiple clients to summon help with a single pigeon call. Doctors can also help patients select the right contact lenses from brands such as Acuvue and Bausch & Lomb.
With machines set up in rows to encourage competition, many ordinary gyms cater to men's bodies and psychology, right down to the urinals that were "accidentally" installed in the women's locker room. At Curves, you'll move around a circuit of hydraulic resistance machines that have been designed to work with women's bodies and promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage your machine maneuvering and your muscle making. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing your momentum, the hydraulic machines use your body weight and fitness level to create resistance that matches your abilities, decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, each machine uses push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can.
