As a former collegiate golfer and member of the Nationwide Tour, PGA teaching professional Jon Butler synthesizes his own experiences with the teachings of influential colleagues to form a unique teaching philosophy. Jon believes that each golfer’s swing should be custom fit to their set of physical characteristics to improve their play and lower their score. To achieve this, he uses advanced swing tools and demonstrations to help players find a balanced swing plane, as well as video analysis so golfers can determine whether they’ve eliminated the instinctual pirouette from their follow-through.
Though most instruction takes place on the range at West Bay Beach and Golf Club, Jon can also follow golfers out onto the course to teach course-management skills and strategy in different situations.
Clients don't need an appointment at Granite Diagnostic Laboratories. At 10 locations across the west coast of Florida, lab technicians administer dozens of in-house and reference tests for walk-in visitors. From a single drawing of blood, they can screen for diseases or check levels of cholesterol, growth hormones, and most everything else that powers the body's internal combustion engines. The technicians work thoroughly and efficiently, and hand over results within a few days.
From the soothing cornflower-blue walls to the children’s play area, it’s clear that the team at Estero Family Chiropractic wants you to feel comfortable and welcome. Instead of vials of medicine, scalpels, or shockingly cold stethoscopes, the doctors rely on their hands and patients’ bodies to bring about health and relief from pain. They achieve this feat by first tracking down the source of pain with exams and x-rays, and then correcting issues with noninvasive spinal adjustments.
Inside the 1,300-square-foot training area of Estero Martial Arts & Fitness, experienced and certified instructors teach classes for children and adults. Their curriculums include mixed martial arts, martial-arts drills for children aged 3–6, kickboxing, and aikido. The facility also hosts a pro shop for equipment, as well as an observation area with seating for onlookers.
Living Well Chiropractic's spine-savvy staff is helmed by Dr. Vivian Ebert, whose 30 years of chiropractic experience and continuing education, including advanced courses in extreme adjusting and rehabilitation, help her to mend and massage backs. The team treats a variety of conditions, including headaches, lower- and mid-back pain, and injuries stemming from automobile accidents, work, or sports. Their motto, "Eat well, think well, move well," applies directly to their method of care—they first assuage immediate pain, then work to maintain spine stability through physical therapy and rehab so that the patient can resume his or her favorite activities. The office prides itself on catering to its patient's needs—the team strictly enforces a "no-wait" policy and recites Shakespearean monologues upon request.
Along with adjusting vertebrae, Living Well's staff focuses on patients' overall health. The center's six-week weight-loss program helps to restore metabolism through better nutrition and one-on-one counseling, telephone, and email support. On Saturdays at 9 a.m., Dr. Ebert can be found heading up her newly formed walking club, “Walk for Health", a free 1–5 mile jaunt or slow-motion hopscotch through town.
