Misty Moon Nickel opened Bria Pilates and Wellness Studio as a healing conduit for clients, leading them to new vitality through therapeutic movements. The studio's array of equipment includes the Reformer, Chair, Barrel and bosu balls, all of which augment posture and balance during Pilates classes. Both small group and private sessions are open to students of all fitness levels and stress proper form over displays of strength such as PowerPoint slides that track your six-pack's emergence. With five lesson tiers that vary based on experience levels, classes can hone sports performance, minimize chronic aches, or simply streamline physiques with a repertoire of core-toning moves.
Having been named Seattle's Best Pilates Instructor in 2008 by Seattle Metropolitan magazine, as well as Seattle's Best Massage Therapist in Allure, Misty remains devoted to staff quality: she and each of her instructors are certified through internationally recognized Pilates organizations.

Guided by Dr. William Philip Werschler, whose aesthetic expertise earned him a spot as judge for Prevention magazine's 2010 Defy-Your-Age Beauty Awards, the staff at Werschler Aesthetics overhauls outer appearances with advanced med-spa treatments. The Clarisonic skin-cleansing system jump-starts each specialty facial with sonic frequencies that, though inaudible to human ears, work to remove deeply embedded oil and dirt, priming skin to absorb pharmaceutical-grade serums from brands such as iS Clinical and SkinMedica. Techs also wield lasers specialized to tackle different maladies, from spider veins to acne, and they work to smooth faces with injectables such as Botox.
At Artistic Plastic Surgery Center, Dr. Khash A. Dehghan and a team of specialists educate clients on the risks and benefits of aesthetic, cosmetic, and surgical procedures before performing treatments that enhance outward appeal.

Anna Johnston, a Euro Institute of Skin Care graduate, makeup artist, and medical aesthetician, supplements the center's surgical procedures with spa services such as derma planing or chemical peels, which remove dull, dead cells or dry, flaky milk moustaches.
Dr. Mike Jensen and his staff of dedicated tooth tamers spruce up smiles and enhance oral health with delicately administered general and cosmetic dental care.
