With a soft stream of warm filtered water, Upstate Colon Care Center's hydrotherapists extract pernicious impurities and dissolve ossified fecal matter. During the 45-minute procedure, an FDA-approved, pencil-size speculum distributes the filter-like particles of a melted snowman around the viscera to sequester unstirred sediment. Upon bestowing bowels with a sprucing rinse, the liquid is flushed, taking with it potential toxins such as candida, mucus, and any misplaced handcuff keys. Freshly inundated insides lead to many benefits, including weight loss and a diminished risk of autointoxication caused by built-up dross.
Licensed acupuncturist and doctor of Oriental medicine James C. Kapetanakos clears out clogged meridians and reroutes blood flow to ailing areas during acupuncture sessions that bridge broken synapses between the mind and body. With calm, unwavering hands, the doctor inserts hair-thin needles into the skin to target pain at its source and clear away circulatory traffic jams. Having honed his skills in a variety of Eastern medical disciplines, Dr. Kapetanakos employs the same acupuncture techniques on patients that he once used to quell his own chronic pain and fear of balloon-wielding clowns. These techniques include neuromuscular reeducation, passive resistance, and a targeted “spot-shotting” method designed to address the root causes of ailments such as neck pain, headaches, and sports-related injuries.

At Highland Walk Golf Course, Bermuda grass fairways and greens arch over 6,407 yards of steep hills studded by tall Georgia pines for a challenging 18-hole layout. Throughout the round, the course’s dramatically undulating terrain gives way to sweeping views of the countryside as well as numerous blind shots, giving an advantage to players whose golf bags double as periscopes. Georgian course architect Denis Griffith’s creative use of the terrain is on full display at the signature 17th hole, where golfers drive the ball from terraced tee boxes and over the shadowy, intimidating depths of a ravine. Though the elevation changes place precise shot making at a premium, the course features relatively open fairways and greens, providing ample landing areas for aggressive drives and caddies airlifted in for emergency putt-reading services.
Course at a Glance: * 18-hole, par 72 course * Length of 6,407 yards from the farthest tees * Course rating of 71.4 from the farthest tees * Slope rating of 131 from the farthest tees * Four tee options
