Dr. Randall Medefesser of Camilo Riaño Orthodontics brightens patients' smiles quickly and efficiently while reducing the practice's environmental impact with paperless statements, bamboo flooring, and recycled-glass tiles. LumaLite whitening edits out tooth blemishes without the traditional rubber eraser during three 15-minute sessions. After a screening, Dr. Medefesser coats bicuspids and their cohorts in a gel before catalyzing it with a specialized light to whiten chompers by up to eight shades. Patients depart the dental offices with gleaming mouth pearls after roughly one hour of treatment. Some whitening patients experience minor tingling sensations when drinking cold liquids or brushing their teeth with a feather.
The dedicated instructors at Aikido Suginami Aikikai guide students through balanced and noncompetitive martial-arts classes designed to shape each individual. Developed early in the 20th century, the martial way of Aikido differs from other martial-art forms and techniques, in that it serves as a means to perfect the self rather than to conquer others or to simply tenderize practice dummies. Dojo director Kato Hiroshi Shihan and his band of black-belted instructors instill students of all ages with confidence, valuable life skills, and practical self-defense abilities through aikido, brazilian-jujitsu, and muay thai classes.
Live Fit Gym is much more than an athletic club—it's a wellness club where workouts are just the tip of the iceberg of health. The one-stop oasis features amenities that combine the best of the spa and fitness worlds, with its three locations offering healing treatments such as acupuncture, massage therapy, facials, and chiropractic services. And, more than earning the "gym" in its name, the spot boasts cardio equipment and free weights along with a variety of group classes. Core training and yoga sessions focus on creating toned, flexible forms, while unique offerings including samba workouts combine boot-camp cardio with boot-stomping tunes.
The Advanced Allergy Solutions team of technicians ease the itching, sniffling, and digestive troubles of allergy sufferers with noninvasive, holistic treatments. Eschewing painful scratch tests, needles, and daggers tipped with pollen, these practitioners use massage-like acupressure treatments on patients of all ages, from infants to the elderly. They treat ailments such as eczema, sinusitis, and bloating, but for safety's sake, will not address substances that have been diagnosed as causing an anaphylactic reaction.
The SAGE Project aims to end human trafficking and the sexual exploitation of both children and adults worldwide. Working with partners in the United States and around the globe, SAGE raises awareness about these issues through education and advocacy programs.
SAGE also helps survivors heal and start new lives through comprehensive support services, including mental-health counseling, job preparation, and case management. As many SAGE staff members have first-hand experiences with issues of prostitution, addiction, and homelessness, they provide a valuable perspective on the experience while providing a supportive, judgment-free environment for survivors, as well as women and youth still in the sex trade.
