At Burke Cosmetic Dentistry, doctors Hashem Sedaghatpour and Farnaz Jabbari combine their experience to offer complete oral health care.

Every year, the NCAA men's basketball tournament is a three-week saga of single-elimination suspense, where athletic juggernauts must fight for their records and overlooked programs have the chance to shine. In 2006, the George Mason Patriots penned their own March Madness Cinderella story by unseating powerhouses Michigan State, North Carolina, and Connecticut to become the lowest seed ever to advance to the Final Four. The Patriots' historic run left fans gasping for air and basketballs everywhere reaching for the nearest pump before the team finally bowed out to the eventual champions, Florida, in the national semifinal.
Though the Patriots' Final Four berth garnered tremendous national attention, George Mason's athletic prowess extends beyond the basketball court. In their proud history, the Patriots have won NCAA championships in multiple sports, including men's indoor track and field and women's soccer.
Cheyenne Liao and the team at Chi Wellness were inspired to pursue Chinese medicine and holistic healing by family members who practiced the science before them. They combine Western and Eastern medical therapies to treat everything from migraines and carpal tunnel to sports injuries, whiplash, and chronic pain.
In addition to medical massage and acupuncture, which can help patients in the treatment of pain, smoking cessation, and weight loss, clients can also benefit from a comprehensive array of treatments directed at specific conditions, including massage modalities such as Swedish, prenatal, and trigger point therapy, as well as herbal medicine. But no matter the treatment, the practitioners believe that the body should be treated as a whole, and work to promote full-body wellness through their targeted services.

Kids will flex social muscles, exercise emotional intelligence, and bench-press cognitive processes.

The certified instructors at YourCore Pilates cultivate leaner torsos and stronger muscles with a range of Pilates and yoga classes. During the semiprivate Pilates Basics class, founder Susan Aarhus focuses on safety as she guides neophytes through fundamental movements, alignment, and breathing. Using this approach to teaching, Susan believes that students will be hooked if their first Pilates experience is fun, educational, and enjoyable. The method's controlled maneuvers tone core muscles to improve posture, coordination, and scores in games of Whac-A-Mole. Other classes, such as Pilates Fusion, blend Pilates with various workout techniques, incorporating yoga and stretching exercises. In Power Pilates, students use traditional weights for full-body resistance training.
