At Combat City combatants are outfitted for controlled engagement using real weapons in a 40,000-square-foot, air-conditioned indoor arena housed in a converted Publix. After briefing players on using the gear and the rules of play, the staff releases players into the arena, where they test their skills among rooms, corridors, and plywood houses. In addition to the indoor arena, Combat City has 180 acres of open and wooded terrain available to combatants.
At Elite Vein Care Center, board-certified specialist Dr. Gregory Samano II and his staff place all their concentration on the treatment of varicose and spider veins. Specializing in these fields, they offer four effective treatment options, including the Venefit targeted endovenous therapy that delivers consistent heat via catheter to reduce discomfort and bruising while collapsing and closing enlarged leg veins. They can also remove affected veins through small incisions or cause them to fade with Asclera injections, turning veins into scar tissue that gradually fades away, unlike many bands that were popular in the 1960s. The team can also perform laser vein therapy, a noninvasive procedure in which the doctor uses powerful pulses of light to dissipate spider or varicose veins.
Following in the osteopathic footsteps of his father, Dr. Gregory P. Samano II, DO, now helms Dr. Gregory P. Samano Sr.'s practice, providing a full range of family-medicine and aesthetic services. He and his staff pride themselves in treating patients the way they would treat their own kin, whether they are setting broken bones, managing chronic conditions, or reading bedtime stories to people getting their blood drawn. Resident practitioners also expertly erase signs of aging with laser treatments and injectable fillers.
Orlando Acupuncture's clinicians are all national-board certified and possess upward of 4,000 hours of training in traditional Chinese healing treatments. Specializing in a 2,500-year-old form of acupuncture, the staff targets ailments such as chronic pain, allergies, and digestive symptoms while customers relax on plush beds flanked by calm lighting and plant life. The acupuncturist sets to work stimulating the necessary pressure points through the use of hair-thin, sterile, disposable needles. Additionally, the well-versed clinicians supplement their services with nutrition advice, reign in maverick symptoms with laboratory-tested herbs, and loosen and recharge tight backs with therapeutic acupressure treatments that act as adequate stand-ins for a pair of AA batteries.
Energizing beats fuel each furious workout at F.I.R.M. Fitness Camp as groups move together to shave off pounds and shape stronger bodies. Certified personal trainers start fresh each day with a new workout that employs dumbbells, jump ropes, and the Lebert Equalizer to keep heart rates pumping while building muscle mass. Unlike other boot camps, the trainers motivate through positive reinforcement rather than by yelling at clients or leaving passive-aggressive post-it notes on their fridges. Additionally, each energy-boosting session is held indoors, so students need not worry about sessions being canceled due to rain.
