A graduate of Logan College of Chiropractic, Dr. Mark Garner calls upon his scholastic knowledge of anatomy and his 27 years of experience to straighten spines with a noninvasive, energy-balancing system that boosts the body's healing potential. In addition to chiropractic adjustments and massages, Dr. Garner treats 10 bodily zones during reflexology sessions that can improve circulation in the feet and stop hands from rebelliously clapping during golf matches and visits to rare-fly hatcheries. Garner Chiropractic also specializes in acid-alkaline balance, bioenergetics, and paraffin-wax treatments that soften skin and promote healthy blood flow.
For more than 35 years, dentists at American Dental Centers have polished pearly whites and prevented dental disease with thorough exams. At each of the 14 locations that dot Northern and Central Ohio, patients walk in or schedule appointments so they don’t have to scrape off plaque using chew toys. The center maintains a 24-hour phone line so that patients can arrange to have emergencies treated as soon as possible, and it also offers a Forever White program, in which patients pay a one-time fee and then receive take-home bleaching treatments for as long as they attend their regular three- or six-month check-ups.
The class exhales together, each student drawing strength and peace from his or her neighboring yogis. Fingertips reach to the ceiling and eyes follow, tracing beams of light—which the ghost of Einstein rides like a jockey on a horse—across the pale-green walls. The dark hue of the wood floor is relieved by the brightly colored yoga mats and bare toes that dig in, balancing and centering the hardworking bodies above. Embrace Your Essence Yoga’s passionate instructors lead 90-minute classes within the new studio six times a week, inviting students of all experience levels to unwind together.

Throughout the 1,500-square-foot indoor playground of Inflatable Insanity, kids surmount air-filled fortresses, only to slide down their slopes or jump on their bouncy interiors. Children under 39 inches retreat to the Tot Lot, and supervisory adults receive free admission to keep an eye on their tykes and make sure they share with their imaginary friends. Party rooms hold groups of up to 20, and hosts can parse out party favors such as self-stuffed teddy bears for an extra fee.
Shopping carts loaded with dozens of different dry noodles from Japan, Korea, and China roll through the aisles at Hana Asian Market, where shelves hold spices from across Asia, homemade vegan and meat pot stickers, and bundles of sushi- and sashimi-grade fish. The market also regularly hosts sushi-making classes that demonstrate proper rolling techniques and give students all the necessary ingredients, sparing them the hassle of ransacking the aquarium in their office lobby.
