Splash 'Em Out's team of professionals man an arsenal of mammoth 20- to 60-pound front-load washers that can handle up to six loads of laundry at a time. When clothes are washed clean, they're moved into extra-large dryers with high, medium, or no heat settings capable of handling anything from heavy-duty towels to delicate undergarments. For customers who prefer performing the wash themselves, Splash 'Em Out's four locations keep customers' minds off the wait with entertainment including cable TV, video games, WiFi, and a children's play area. Stained clothes get special attention from Splash 'Em Out's staff, who can remove remnants of smoke, soot, or water stains from damaged clothing and thoroughly clean horse blankets without riding the horse through a car wash.
Hairmasters Salon and Spa's team of hairologists, armed with a minimum of 12 years of industry experience and a bevy of brand-name products, keep male and female manes flaunting a fashionable coiffure and a soft-to-the-touch texture.

Those who opt to add a one-hour two-process color treatment to their salon session can let a hair master shift the spectrum of their head hues during a two-process color service.
Dr. Mark Stephens's cosmetic dental practice returns tarnished teeth to sparkling form, offering treatments to straighten, whiten, and fine-tune smiles. The Opalescence whitening gels employ a prescription-strength solution to buff stained chompers back to their youthful shimmer, resulting in a brighter, healthier beam within a week or less. Dr. Stephens personally customizes each set of gels with an alginate impression before handing patients a handy pack of incisor-enhancers that can be applied in the comfort of their home or top-secret chamber of smiles. Along with its aesthetic benefits, most Opalescence formulations include potassium fluoride, which is said to improve oral health by strengthening enamel and decreasing the sensitivity of vulnerable chompers wounded by emotionally unavailable brushes.
Following a six-day-per-week class schedule offering one to two classes each day, the OM place's pliable instructors steep clients of all physical abilities in the practice of various yoga styles. Up to 24 students per class ease into asanas with Yoga Basics classes that teach fundamental postures, as well as Slow Flow sessions focused on connecting breathing with movement. Further up the metronome, Yoga Flow classes vigorously guide yogis through swift Vinyasa movements in a 76- to 80-degree room, and on the third Wednesday of each month, the class morphs into Yoga Pulse to sync the dynamic flow with live drumbeats. Slow Stretch class members use props and specialized breathing to help soothe weary bodies and relax minds feverish from prolonged Rubik's cube ordeals.
Although Lexington is almost 7,000 miles away from the Korean peninsula, you wouldn't know it from the training sessions at Lexington Taekwondo & Jiu Jitsu Academy. Here, adept masters teach their students the ancient art of tae kwon do, the precision kicks and fast strikes of which make it as hard to defend as it is graceful to watch. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu classes focus on grappling and ground fighting to show students how a smaller person can defeat a larger opponent through leverage and superior technique. Of course, these experts don't limit themselves to two disciplines; other classes introduce kids to karate, or train students in the art of martial weapons including the bo staff and nunchaku.

Husband-and-wife team Drs. Teresa Boyd and David R. Thornton share many things, including a home in Lexington, two sons, and a dental practice. But the sharing doesn't stop with the two of them.
