Doctors of Chiropractic Nicole and Alexandre “Mick” Sicre perform x-rays, adjustments, and posture analyses inside Active Family Chiropractic's vibrantly hued treatment rooms. Patients recline on special treatment beds as a spinal expert realigns vertebrae that clients have knocked askew by getting injured in sports games or typing on a computer keyboard tied to their back. A weight-loss program incorporates packets of Ideal Protein into patients' diets to help them shed stubborn pounds.
The confidence that doctors Miamee and Aman exude when performing procedures is nearly enough to put anxious patients at ease, all on its own. Their command of the dental sciences is bolstered by their use of the latest technology, such as CEREC. With that impressive machine, they capture detailed images of teeth that allow them to craft customized restoration pieces, such as crowns that are fitted, sized, shaped, and colored exactly to fit each mouth's own unique layout. Digital x-rays, meanwhile, also allow them to capture comprehensive views of teeth and identify signs of decay or any watermelon seeds the patient forgot to spit out, all while exposing patients to much less radiation than that given off by traditional x-rays.
Koko FitClub’s automated personal-training system rockets both men and women toward fitness goals with 30-minute custom workouts that incorporate cardio and strength training. An initial consultation determines fitness levels and baseline measurements, which Koko’s computerized equipment uses to design a tailored workout plan that precisely measures the weight, pace, and rest time appropriate for each exerciser.
The Koko machines guide exercisers through each workout and adapt as the user’s fitness needs change in order to constantly challenge the body. Designed by professional trainers, workouts maximize the body’s lean-muscle mass, which can boost metabolism and help fight off disease by challenging viruses to kickboxing matches. Exercisers can track their shrinking waistlines and swelling muscles online by analyzing workout scores and comparing individual fitness levels to the Koko FitClub community.
Understanding that eyes are delicate organs, Dr. Michael Khalil emphasizes the value of trust between optometrist and patient. He earns this trust with his nearly four decades of experience, which includes certifications in laser-correction consultation and the treatment of certain eye diseases. His real passion, however, is pairing “hard-to-fit” patients with contacts that more easily accommodate thin corneas or glowing triangular pupils. In addition to assessing visual acuity and testing for cataracts, glaucoma, and other issues, Dr. Khalil stocks his shelves with fashionable frames from top-name designers, such as Prada, Gucci, and Hugo Boss.
The Eyewear Gallery's staff—composed of two optometrists and three eyewear-style specialists—cover all aspects of eye care, from giving exams to selecting flattering frames. Once they've helped match frames with faces or light-sensitive Renaissance portraits, The Eyewear Gallery has them inset with high-quality Hoya and Zeiss lenses. Their passion to help others see the world clearly has caused two of the staff members to bring their skills to remote villages in Honduras, where proper vision helps children stay successful in school and enables craftspeople to ply their trades.
Since 1973, each of Sport&Health's clubs has aimed for full fitness coverage with programs for every taste and family member. Guests can spark positive lifestyle changes with workouts and wellness services, or engage in a variety of sports. Each facility houses different athletic amenities for games and laps, from pristine swimming pools to squash and racquetball courts. The camaraderie of group classes such as Zumba and Les Mills BodyPump barbell routines complement scores of club equipment meant for exercising solo—or with the guidance of a certified personal trainer. The clubs also emphasize kid-friendly activities with arts and crafts, Kidz Klub childcare, and youth certification courses that teach teens the ins and outs of training. Depending on the location, spa treatments can knead tension from muscles and paint one's favorite kettlebell with a layer of Shellac.
To teach the Bikram yoga method, each aspiring instructor must endure nine weeks of intensive training program, along with 500 hours of practice. For Bikram Yoga Reston's instructors, the training was just another milestone on their quests for wellness. Designed to be as practical as it is aesthetically pleasing, the airy practice space is outfitted with cushioned flooring that is covered in an antimicrobial woodgrain sheet, and mirrors span the walls to help students identify which of their fellow cobras are actually basilisks. A cleaning crew wipes down the studio and shower facilities daily.
