Yuen Lui Studios, a family-owned photography business specializing in individual and family portraits and wedding photography, creates photographic heirlooms in a tradition of quality it has upheld since 1947. With several area Yuen Lui studios available, each boasts a multitude of backdrop options for portraiture sessions, or photographers may take sessions outdoors to add natural scenery to the frame. Wedding and engagement shots come to life under the careful eyes of each photographer as they seize rare moments and trap them in frames to be displayed like trophies from a hunt. High-school, child, baby, and family portraits keep precious memories locked in time for clients, who can peruse an online gallery of their images after their session.
Aiming to keep their clients looking and feeling great, Tropical Tans offers a variety of services, from B-12 injections and red-light therapy to custom airbrush tanning. Upon entering the low-lit, luxuriously appointed boutique, visitors can head back to private rooms to enter stand-up, lay-down, or hamster-wheel tanning beds. Or they opt for a restorative, UV-free session in one of the red-light-therapy beds.
For some, the urge to create delicious desserts far exceeds the willingness to eat stale candy and unwrap waxy chocolate. For those brave few, Dawn's Candy and Cake carries more than 8,000 molds and organizes candy- and confection-making classes that help candy connoisseurs craft their own confections. Instructors lead students through the basics of making treats such as hollow bunnies and chocolate piñatas in Chocolate 101, and delve into the worlds of truffles, liquor-filled chocolates, and chocolate-dipped fruit, pretzels, and cookies in other courses. Specialty classes investigate advanced topics such as icing, petit fours, and cake pops. Dawn's also hosts a cake club, during which members meet to enjoy snacks, guest demonstrations, and gossip sessions about why Little Debbie only wears one outfit.

The staff at Dynamic Chiropractic Clinic believe that, because it's the body's communication center, the spine’s condition can affect the health of the entire body. During treatment sessions, chiropractors correct the alignment of vertebrae with up-to-date techniques—such as motion palpitation, which detects dysfunctional joints, and active release, which treats overused muscles with motion techniques—that are gentler than past methods and more effective than propping patients up with puppet strings. Other corrective techniques, such as exercises and massage therapy, retrain the muscles to support correct alignment. The clinic specializes in rehabilitating clients with injuries from accidents and other traumas, though they can help patients of all ages and backgrounds maintain good spinal health.
