Mouth bones are put through more wear and tear than any other exposed bone in the body. Keeping them pristine by ensuring that no cavities, gum disease, or event horizons have occurred is of the utmost importance to overall health. Dr. Fryer, who has over 20 years of dental experience, will look deep into your primary head hole and thoroughly examine and cleanse the toothen structures therein. X-rays will be taken, which is both a worthwhile and fashionable procedure, as leaded aprons were one of the most popular spring garments at NY fashion week.

Before stepping foot into his namesake practice within the Willo Medical Building, licensed acupuncturist Anthony Lorenzo spent hundreds of hours learning the ins and out of Chinese herbal treatments and acupuncture. This dedication led to a master's degree in Oriental medicine as well as a specialization in the Japanese style of acupuncture.

Today, from his intimate practice, Lorenzo employs this form of acupuncture, which uses fine, sterile needles and minimal manipulation to increase blood flow, reduce discomfort, and increase energy levels more effectively than a dose of motor oil. The ancient treatment also works to reduce aches and pains caused by headaches, digestive issues, and autoimmune disorders.

The grappling fighting style known as jujitsu first came to Brazil in 1914 stored in the hands and mind of Mitsuyo Maeda, a Japanese immigrant and master of the art. He only stayed a year, but it was enough time to plant the seeds for a new jujitsu academy in Brazil. One of the first students at that academy was Hélio Gracie.

Hélio absorbed the fighting style quickly, adapting many of the techniques to suit his small frame. He discovered methods of leverage that allowed him to execute joint locks, choke holds, and takedowns on much larger opponents, forming the core of his new Gracie jujitsu method. Ultimately, Hélio's son Royce brought the fighting style to America, famously winning UFC 1, 2, and 4 by defeating opponents many times his own size. Suddenly, Americans lined up to learn this newly unveiled Brazilian fighting style, demonstrating their eagerness by folding themselves inside a box and shipping themselves south.

Relson Gracie, Hélio's second oldest son, chose to be an ambassador of his family's fighting style. He was already teaching abroad when his little brother Royce skyrocketed Brazilian jujitsu to popularity. He founded his first school under the name Relson Gracie Jiu-Jitsu in Hawaii, and as the art became popular, he opened new branches of his academy all across the United States. Today, he visits more than 40 academies and associations, sharing his knowledge with thousands of students. In his absence, he leaves instructors whom he personally trained to oversee the education of aspiring fighters.
