Knowledge is power, especially when it comes to physical health. Doctor of Chiropractic Christina Trzaska helps patients take control of their health by sharing her knowledge. She educates her clients while performing a variety of healing techniques, including drop-table adjustments, kinesiology taping, and Graston-technique massages, which incorporate smooth stainless-steel instruments to create a cross-friction movement across the soft tissues. Dr. Trzaska's practice also has elements of a spa; clients can relax in a Himalayan-salt infrared sauna, for example.
The Massage Studio combines relaxing kneading sessions with a romantic atmosphere to create a cozy spa getaway that leaves guests unwound and stress free. Bring a mate, friend, or life-sized drawing of Elvis for respite from busy workdays with the 70-minute couples massage. Each individual will have his or her own personal, licensed therapist slugging stress with a muscle makeover while bodies relax side by side within a private room. Nimble fingers will lull muscular tension into a false sense of security with traditional Swedish-massage strokes before striking with soothing deep-tissue techniques to release hapless stress. The addition of hot-stone therapy warms up world-weary meatsuits, allowing for better absorption of oils and lotions and warmer muscles for clearing icebergs out of the paths of transatlantic cruise ships.
Despite spending most of their 125-plus-year history as a minor-league organization, the Bisons were a major-league club from 1879 to 1885. All told, nearly 3,000 players and managers have donned the Bisons uniform, including 20 who have been immortalized in the National Baseball Hall of Fame. Currently, the Bisons compete every summer for an International League title, as well as the Thruway Cup—a regional and bragging-rights-based trophy chased by the Bisons, the Rochester Red Wings, and the Syracuse Chiefs. The Bisons have played half of their games since 1988 at Coca-Cola Field, which boasts the largest video board in the minors and an infield kept moist by hoses that spray water and not the soda that the field’s name would suggest.
