The extensive facilities at Bisbee Golf Center, which include a driving range with 40 grass tees and a 5,000-square-foot putting green, set the stage for practice and improvement under the expert eyes of professional teachers. Since opening the center in 1988, owner Jeff Bisbee, a Class A PGA professional, and his father, Doug, a PGA Class A member since 1962, have helped students lower scores and increase their enjoyment of the game through private and group lessons. Their instruction involves thorough analysis of the swing to identify areas for improvement, calling upon computer-aided techniques to break down the swing into its most basic components of backswing, downswing, and bowing to vanquished opponents.
Fitnessology's crew of professional fitness consultants, nutrition counselors, and pain relievers works to help patrons meet their health and fitness goals with personal training, nutrition counseling, and small-group classes. Since she opened the business in 1995, owner Jacqueline Larsen, a fitness trainer since 1980 and a nationally ranked bodybuilder from 1994 to 2003, has focused on aiding clients in their quests for total-body wellness by teaching them how to integrate fitness, healthy habits, and thumb wars into their everyday lives. She is so committed to total wellness that she has created The Clinic—a subset of the Fitnessology facility that treats muscular pain and is staffed by a chiropractor, neuromuscular therapist, and corrective exercise specialist. Their thorough assessments and medical-term quizzes help them assess and understand pain before treating conditions that include lower-back pain, headaches, tennis elbow, and motion restrictions.

Licensed massage therapist Lily MacFaydian dreamt up the name for Of the Sea Therapeutics one day in the midst of a cupping session. Cupping, which uses vacuum cups to suction the skin in an effort to release muscle stiffness, tends to leave temporary marks that are circular and red. To Lily's imagination, they looked like the work of an octopus. After deciding on the name, she opened up shop.
Since her relaxing revelation, things have changed for Lily. She's traded her cupping therapy for full-on massage and has since relocated the business into Santa Fe Salon. Here, Lily comforts muscles and restores vitality with a range of treatments. Gliding Swedish massages boost circulation and chase away stress, and deep-tissue sessions knead the tautness out of pulled muscles. Lily makes sessions extra relaxing by applying hot towels, customized aromatherapy, and hot-water pillows and by not leaving out a ventriloquist’s dummy with eyes that seem to follow you around the room.
