Although Starlight Tanning Salon's fleet of tanning beds includes such top equipment as Matrix beds imported from Italy and high-pressure standup units, it would be a mistake to assume its sole focus is UV tanning, since the salon's lead trainer is actually an airbrush-tanning specialist. In fact, even the beds aren't only for tanning, since the salon also carries a skin-rejuvenation model used solely to promote the production of collagen and elastin, not pigment. Clients can also opt to whiten their teeth or duck into the oxygen bar, where a generator produces ambient air to increase oxygen intake to 95 percent and help improve the body's alertness and function. While there, patrons can simultaneously enjoy tanning services and sips from empty glasses.
While taking a barre fitness class, Ashley Walters Kanter noticed that her fellow students were struggling to perform the more difficult movements. Already the owner of Elite Movement, a fitness studio specializing in Pilates Reformer classes, Kanter decided to create a barre routine that was easier on the body. She quickly partnered with barre guru Brookelin Gottlieb, and the pair created EMBarre, a series of ballet, Pilates, and cardio exercises that work each muscle group instead of overworking one or two. Elite Movement's barre fitness classes round out their schedule of Pilates and Reformer classes.
Even before Craig Swogger ventured into the holistic world as a professional, he practiced what he preached; he was and is an avid meditation participant and instructor. Now as an alternative-care practitioner—who also holds a master's degree in acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine—Craig utilizes his knowledge in the services he provides, including creating his own ointments from Chinese herbs. His dedication to his craft is also apparent to his clients as he rids them of aches, nausea, and anxiety with cupping, tai chi, moxibustion, and the ancient art form of acupuncture.
Florman Orthodontics’ husband-wife orthodontist team have straightened more than 1,300 chomper sets via Invisalign and other aligner methods, earning them an Elite Preferred ranking from Invisalign in recognition of their exceptional depth of experience. The Invisalign process straightens crooked chompers with a combination of highly advanced, 3-D computer graphics and the spells of old-fashioned orthodontia, eschewing cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. An initial 30-minute exam, including x-rays, photos, and impressions of your mouth terrain, paves the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift walnut crackers into perfect alignment.
