Eastport Aesthetics pampers patrons with a full menu of spa services in a luxurious, relaxing environment. During a fotofacial, a licensed nurse practitioner will use a nourishing combination of intense pulsed light and radiofrequency energy to erase sunspots, age spots, freckle spots, and the other discolorations and spots that life stencils onto your skin while you're sleeping. Afterward, clients can wrap up in a soft and fuzzy robe while ogling Charleston Harbor, then slip back into real-world clothing before steering their freshly tended flesh toward the outdoors.
Aesthetic physician Dr. Barbara Ringwald's skilled staffers at Medical Aesthetics Inc turn back the hands of time and coax natural beauty to the surface with an arsenal of noninvasive procedures. Armed with an eye for detail and a gentle touch, technicians seek out noninvasive, natural-looking solutions for smoothing skin and sculpting bodies that can be deployed in the space of a standard lunch hour or substandard Christmas break. As patients enter the waiting area, cushy leather chairs and couches beg bodies to sink in before they're summoned into secluded treatment rooms. The clinic links outer beauty with inner health and wide-ranging well-being by adding nutritional counseling to body-sculpting treatments and even stocking Dr. Barbara's Bookshelf with recommended reads and fake volumes concealing safes for stashing worldly cares.
The instructors at Fusion Yoga Studio Sacramento showcase the ways in which yoga fits into more or less any lifestyle. The group includes teachers, pediatricians, mothers, and college professors, all working together to pass along the relaxation and wellbeing they’ve discovered.
On colorful mats near swaying potted plants, the instructors slip gracefully through poses during vinyasa classes. Offering three separate studios, Fusion Yoga has more than enough space to provide ample class choices, everything from power yoga to yoga therapeutics. Other classes at the center cater to specific groups, including yoga basics, prenatal yoga, and Mom & Baby Yoga. Ample parking makes this studio easily accessible for yogis on-the-go.
Since 1972, Spare Time Clubs has evolved into a 10-club, full-service family sports club company that includes programs for both adults and children. Each location varies in size—some boasting multiple complexes—and houses amenities such as lighted tennis courts, pools, kids’ play areas, and fitness centers. At the Diamond Hills and El Dorado Hills locations, members can shine up in the onsite European spas, and the jewel of the Gold River club is a lighted stadium court encircled by a 5,000 square-foot observation deck. In the event of inclement weather or courts being overrun by ball-chasing dogs, players can schedule time at the dedicated indoor-tennis center, where eight fully sectioned-off, championship courts glow under the power of tournament-level lighting. World-class coaches develop kids’ court skills at the junior tennis academy, students of which can practice with an unlimited number of sessions at any of Spare Time’s other clubs.
As they enter the training circle at Curves, female guests come face-to-face with the smiles of other women. And just as points on a circle share a common distance from the circle's center, workout participants share the experiences of those nearby, trading stations throughout the 30-minute training session. One minute is spent on a piece of strength-training equipment built for feminine frames and designed to work two opposing muscle groups with a single movement. Exercisers then move on to a recovery station, where they run, jog, or dance to maintain heart rates and keep platforms in place during momentary losses of gravity.
Inside the studio of The Yoga Solution, certified yoga instructors strive to build a sense of community. They provide support to students of all experience levels and focus on proper alignment in poses. During classes, students use blocks, bolsters, and special ropes affixed to the walls to help stretch the body and form correct poses. In addition to regular classes, the staff teaches a therapeutic class that helps guests suffering from fibromyalgia, chronic pain, multiple sclerosis, and panic attacks.
