At RoxStar Fitness, the choreographer, performer, and Pilates guru Natasha Brown transforms dance routines into high-energy workouts where women can have fun while getting in shape. She pulls dance moves from many genres—rock, pop, hip-hop, swing, and more—and ties them together in RoxStar’s calorie-torching classes. Besides providing a good workout, Natasha shares dance tips that students can put to good use while busting moves at a wedding or in the background of a White House press briefing. Clients can supplement spirited dance classes with flexibility- and strength-building sessions of yoga and Pilates, as well as one-on-one personal-training programs.
Two Northwestern College of Chiropractic alums oversee the services at Foothills Chiropractic. Since the school didn't have a football team, Doctors of Chiropractic Jurgen Oltjenbruns and Gail Shriner have reserved their rah-rah spirit for the adjustment techniques they learned, which include the Diversified, Activator, and Thompson Drop techniques. Complementing the adjustments are other traditional pain-relieving services such as physical rehab, massage therapy, and reflexology.
When Joy was a child, she would wake up in the morning and amble over to her family's Arabian horses, whom she would then feed and groom. Eight hours later, she'd come home from school and care for them some more, getting the horses dressed to go dancing at equine speakeasies. "Riding," she explains, "was a part of life, and all extra-curricular activities included horses." Joy was still a young child when she set her sights on becoming a professional horse trainer. Since then, she has won numerous riding awards and worked with a number of horses. At Joy Reed Training & Management, she shares her love of the sport with riders of all skill levels. In her own words, she seeks to help "build confidence, self-esteem, pride, and responsibility in youth and adult riders."
Instead of playing a background role in directing Premier Aesthetics of North Scottsdale, the aesthetic surgeon on staff is directly involved in the care of each patient. A team of technologists aids the surgeon in performing cosmetic services, which range from microdermabrasion and dermal fillers that smooth the face to scar revision that partially erases the surprising results of break dancing in a briar patch. During their visits, patients can watch the flat-screen televisions that dangle from the walls of the clinic’s private treatment rooms.
Carl Sonder, MD is on a mission: to create beauty and happiness in a world often beset by strife. He has seen his fair share of the latter. After studying internal medicine at the prestigious Mount Sinai School of Medicine, Dr. Sonder served in the military as a general medical officer in Vietnam. His focus was on the treatment of severe burn injuries, and it was here that a lifelong passion for aesthetic medicine was born. After his military service, Dr. Sonder became board-certified in psychiatry and neurology, and practiced psychiatry and internal medicine in New York City for 25 years. Dr. Sonder then relocated to Arizona in 1999, and nurtured his interest in aesthetics with a series of courses and trainings in aesthetic technology and cosmetic procedures. He was recently elected to the American Academy of Hyperbaric Physicians after becoming certified in the use of the above-hospital-grade Khrunichev hyperbaric oxygen chamber.
Dr. Sonder now directs the team of doctors, nurses, and medical aestheticians at Regency Medical Spa. The clinical team combats signs of aging on the face with injectable fillers and Botox, and contours bodies with anti-cellulite mesotherapy sessions or LipoDissolve procedures. The reception area at the Phoenix facility boasts a large, reddish-brown painting that mirrors the rich red floors and accentuates the brown leather chairs. The Scottsdale site is also bedecked in soothing earth tones. Both locations offer a private concierge driver service to get clients home after treatments or acquaint extraterrestrials with local businesses.
