At Sierra Tahoe Laser and Wellness Center, Dr. Michael Nelson treats patients of all backgrounds through a nurturing, holistic philosophy.

The Class IV laser, meanwhile, targets deep tissue and alleviates maladies such as arthritis and ligament sprains from competitive rock, paper, scissors tournaments.

Chief instructor Paul Reyes brings more than 20 years of teaching experience to 360 Martial Arts Academy, as he helms a team of MMA instructors who guide combatants through an all-terrain combination of kickboxing, grappling, and weapons handling. Students commence butt-kicking with the Introductory Course, comprosed of one group and two semi-private classes, in which gurus teach the basics of muay thai, tae kwon do, kali, and Brazilian jiu-jitsu. From there, the adult program takes the fully grown on a journey to black belt, during which trainees learn the rigors of self-defense and permanently banish suspenders from wardrobes. Underage pugilists train at one of three levels; 4- to 6-year-old Little Dragons and 7- to 8-year-old Dragons work through age-adjusted 10-month programs with a special belt system, whereas kids ages 9–12 immerse themselves in a miniature version of the adult track, which pits cherubs against juice boxes instead of kicking bags.
