The chiropractic doctors of Premier Chiropractic & Pilates blend chiropractic services, Pilates, and HydroMassage to help their patients on the way to optimal health health. During initial visits, patrons can expect an exhaustive consultation, examination, and suite of x-rays, allowing the doctors to best chart a course of treatment. Afterwards, they can partake in the appropriate service, be it corrective exercises, nutritional counseling, or physiotherapy.
Under the supervision of Dr. Jon Dresser, a staff of nurse practitioners and registered nurses bolsters client confidence and boosts well-being with noninvasive aesthetic services.

Having struggled with weight problems when she was younger, Healthy Habits Studio owner Rose Zahnn knows the importance of exercise and eating right firsthand. She opened the studio almost 20 years ago, and in that time has seen it grow to hosting more than 25 fitness classes each week.
The Healthy Habits schedule catalogs a diverse selection of group workouts. Fit Body Boot Camp classes each feature a unique workout that helps tone and strengthen muscles, burn fat, and boost metabolisms to burn more calories for hours after the workout, not just during it. In addition to group classes, the staff is available for one-on-one sessions that can focus on weight training, Pilates, and yoga. Rose also offers a weight-loss program in which she emails clients once a day with nutrition and exercise suggestions for 10 days, or the time it takes a team of NASA scientists to reengineer your body into its healthiest, most aerodynamic version.
Even before becoming a naturopathic doctor, Dennis Godby was always interested in preventative medicine and the healthy effects of exercise and nutrition. A lifelong runner and founder of a cross-country activism project called The Run, Dr. Godby works to educate patients on the mind-body-spirit connection and how it applies to overall wellness. At Sacramento Naturopathic Medical Center, he and his team use a variety of tests and good old-fashioned listening to diagnose chronic and acute ailments. They then treat these ills with supplements, counseling, and other proven methods.
It might be more accurate to call Todd Buckley and Sara Tittle the artistic directors rather than the owners of Mosaic Salon—he recruits promising stylists and she trains them in the methods of Vidal Sassoon, Toni & Guy, and other top industry names. They then put the best stylists on the salon floor, arming them with products from Kérastase and Bumble and bumble, professional styling tools, and shears forged by long-haired artisan blacksmiths. In addition to providing hair services, Mosaic's team refines the rest of clients’ images with face and body treatments using SkinCeuticals and Dermalogica skincare products.
