The staff members at Sylvan Learning's numerous study facilities understand that each child learns differently. Therefore, they don't try to implement a uniform tutoring system; instead, they design custom lesson programs based on the results of standardized testing, diagnostic tools, and one-on-one interviews.
Tutors work with students from kindergarten through grade 12, illuminating topics ranging from basic reading and writing to remembering complex algebraic formulas without having them tattooed on your chest. Many of Sylvan's instructors work in local schools, so they are intimately familiar with common curricula and understand how to gear lessons toward optimal results.
Desert Sun Tanning's FormoStar body wraps radiate infrared heat onto the limbs and torso in order to boost metabolism and accelerate the burning of fat. During the 50-minute treatment, clients can adjust the body wrap's temperature to suit their levels of heat tolerance and pyromania. The heat from the wrap helps alleviate muscle pain, promotes calorie burning without muscle or lung fatigue, and stimulates the lymphatic system. The sweating that the treatment induces in users is also thought to exfoliate away dead skin cells.

Dr. Chen-Ying (Richard) Huang has a former patient to thank for his foray into holistic medicine. It was during his time as an occupational therapist in Taiwan that he noticed a dramatic surge in progress for one of his recovering patients. Upon inquiring into this change, Dr. Huang found that the patient had tried acupuncture to augment his rehab, with great results. That's when Dr. Huang began to explore acupuncture and other alternative forms of healing. At Amazing Alternative Acupuncture, he combines Western and Chinese medicinal approaches to assuage physical and emotional pain with treatments such as acupuncture, Chinese herbal supplements, and NAET allergy relief.
The team at Modernized Exteriors helps homes reach their full potential by boosting their curb appeal.
