In Scott Crawford's world, fitness is everything. First drawn to the importance of healthy living during a soccer career that would see him play professionally, Scott's interest initially centered on staying fit enough to take the pitch. However, he also found himself intrigued by the psychological side of wellness. This curiosity led him to earn degrees in psychology and study in Ph.D. programs for somatic and sports psychology. Along the way, he never neglected his physical side; after his playing career ended, he earned a slew of training certifications. Soon, he held licenses in personal training, bodywork, and yoga from governing bodies ranging from the National Academy of Sports Medicine and Stott Pilates to The Body Therapy Institute the White Lotus Foundation.
After cutting his teeth as a trainer at exclusive clubs and resorts throughout Texas and California, Scott finally blended his twin interests, founding SOMA Get Fit in 2007. There, he earned renown by devising custom-tailored wellness programs that combine goal-specific training with a holistic blend of mental-wellness counseling, Pilates, yoga, and nutrition education. Depending on his initial consultations, clients might sweat through adventurous sessions of beach and mountain training, ramble across forest paths on mountain bikes, or work their way through overnight retreats. This all-encompassing approach earned him a star-studded client list; past participants in his sessions include Calvin Klein, Michael Jordan, and Katy Perry. The press caught wind of his work, too, with glowing reviews appearing in the pages of Marie Claire, Sunset, and the Hollywood Reporter.
Now working with the Montecito Aesthetic Institute, Scott delivers his signature massages and bodywork treatments to clients within the center's tranquil modern treatment rooms.

LA Laser and Skin Center's board-certified dermatologist Dr. Daniel Taheri decorates his office with a Valentine Honor, the most prestigious award bestowed upon a UCLA Medical School graduate. A tenacious academic after graduation, he has published more than 25 articles in scientific journals and authored a tome, Practical Management of Skin Cancer, which medical schools use in their curricula, and high school cafeterias boil down into lunches. The Center reaps the benefits of Dr. Taheri's continued diligence, with special departments for skin-cancer management and medical dermatology. Beauty is also cultivated at the cutting edge.

After founding the Advanced Dermatology and Skin Cancer Institute—where he has mended the skin woes of such celebrities as Cindy Chiu—Dr. Lin turned his attention to his clients' outer appearances, and the Linage Dermatology Institute was born.

Light-based devices, such as the Sciton laser for hair removal, the ProFractional laser for wrinkle reduction, and the laser pointer for receptionist amusement, enhance exteriors with a noninvasive approach, and injectables such as Juvéderm and Botox help restore youthful radiance. For at-home care, the physician's signature line of Linage LINQ products helps keep newfound faces nourished and protected.
