Dr. Kevin E. Young and his staff set their sights on holistic dental health with comprehensive aesthetic, periodontal, and preventative services. The tooth technicians go after signs of decay and other potential issues at their literal roots with thorough cleanings and routine exams. Fluorescent lasers courtesy of Diagnodent pinpoint tooth decay with more than 90% accuracy, and dental x-rays reveal developmental abnormalities and hollowed-out molars where tooth fairies keep their coins. The staff also brightens smiles with a variety of cosmetic services, including light-activated Zoom! whitening treatments, porcelain crowns, and bridges. Dr. Young combats periodontal disease with treatments tailored to each patient and dresses damaged teeth in restorative filings, caps, or full and partial dentures.
True to its simplistic name, Wellness Forum Hot Yoga cranks the thermostat to a warm, humid, and detoxifying temperature designed to burn body fat, loosen stiff muscles, and flush out toxins. During each 90-minute hot-yoga class, the studio's trained instructors lead a looped series of 26 flowing poses, pushing well-warmed student bodies to forge new, flexible frontiers while maintaining rhythmic deep-relaxation breathing. After just a few flowing sessions, mentally limber students at Wellness Forum Hot Yoga can expect healthier-looking skin and occasional bouts of endorphin-induced giggles. To make the most of the heat-seeking experience, first-timers should arrive 15 minutes early with beach towels and yoga mats (rentals available for $1), plus water in their bodies, their bottles, and, if applicable, in any unattended at-home aquariums.
Daniel, the licensed acupuncturist behind Ohio Wholistic Acupuncture, is spreading the word. Carrying with him the skills he gained while studying in Los Angeles and Seoul, he works to introduce people to the benefits of acupuncture, a healing art he believes can help to heal and prevent pain essentially without any side effects. Using sterilized, single-use needles as fine as a human hair or 1/187th of a pie, Daniel targets acupressure points, which can help to rechannel the body's energy flow and potentially relieve pain, lessen stress, and improve overall health.
Running puts one in touch with the body’s delicate workings. A good distance runner recognizes even the slightest twinge in a muscle and knows the damage a long-term injury can do. Christopher Au of Monarch Massage and Bodywork spent more than a decade running for high-school, college, and postcollegiate track teams, and throughout that time, he became well acquainted with all the aches and pains that can afflict a physically active body. These experiences are what originally led him to become a massage therapist, and he keeps them fresh in his mind while soothing injuries and helping patrons decompress. In addition to Swedish- and sports-massage techniques, he uses the Rossiter System—a series of more than 100 two-person stretches that quickly loosen and elongate connective tissues to relieve pain and restore range of motion after setting the world record for hitting your funny bone on stuff. Christopher is also a member of the American Massage Therapy Association.

Acupuncture is an ancient discipline involving the insertion of ultra-thin, sterile needles in order to reduce pain and help the body heal itself. In addition to increasing circulation and reducing inflammation, these treatments promote holistic health by jump-starting the immune and lymphatic systems and by boosting serotonin levels throughout the body. The clinic's laser systems can also treat people during weight-loss and smoking-cessation laser therapy.
