The pros regularly attend lectures and conventions to keep their techniques up to date, honing the skills that comprise their prevention-based approach to oral care.

Getting a massage is about more than just relaxation at Healthy Habits Massage. The therapists here believe in massage's ability to ease pain and make life more comfortable for those suffering from a wide range of ailments. To that end, they offer therapeutic massage in a comfortable setting and make it their goal to accommodate patients and diminish their symptoms. Whether it's back and neck pain, insomnia, tension, or joint pain that brought clients in, the therapists will customize a treatment to bring their clients relief, incorporating techniques such as deep-tissue massage, trigger point therapy, and even neuromuscular massage. In addition to loosening muscles, the treatments can help patients overcome problems such as insomnia or limited range of motion, and can relieve mental stress so minds can focus on more important things, like family.
Knockout Fitness's instructors lead one-hour, kickboxing-inspired workout routines. They keep classes small, guiding students first through warm-ups and then stretching routines. Then, they hit the bags, quite literally. Each student squares off against a 150-pound heavy bag or an instructor holding pads, practicing fast-paced striking sequences that help build speed, strength, and endurance. Teachers incorporate ab exercises along the way and lead a cool down that's just as important as the warm-up.
Though fitness classes comprise a lot of what they do, the trainers also teach martial arts classes. In addition to boxing and kickboxing sessions, they lead jiu-jitsu training and MMA classes, where athletes mix all their skills together in one match. Every class focuses on developing technique and endurance, and many guests choose to supplement their training with the gym's weight-lifting focused programs, especially if they plan on fighting a barbell.
