LASIK surgeon to the Globetrotters and fixed-vision patient himself, Dr. Mitchell Jackson of Jacksoneye has performed more than 30,000 blade-free procedures, facilitated by the precise IntraLase flap-creation technique. Dr. Jackson tailors each LASIK procedure to individuals with a pre-op consultation, during which a computer imaging system details each eye's contours, smoothness, corneal regularity, and ability to turn mortals into stone. On the day of surgery, patients and their designated drivers spend roughly 2.5 hours at the office, though the actual process takes only about 10 minutes per eye. The IntraLase system creates and adjusts a corneal flap, forming microscopic, subsurface bubbles to provide a more exact fold than possible with handheld tools. Patients receive an oral sedative and topical anesthetic, though minimal discomfort may be experienced in the 12–36 hours following surgery, such as an itchiness likened to a trapped eyelash or the dawning realization that one's spouse is actually a coat rack. With the exception of swimming, patients generally return to their normal routine within two days.

What is one of your signature services? How is it performed?
Prenatal Massage: Massage for the pregnant client is performed much in the way of a relaxing Swedish massage, with some special considerations. Every woman and pregnancy is unique, so each session is a tailor-made massage ready to promote relaxation and help optimize prenatal wellness. Contrary to popular belief, yes, you CAN have a massage while pregnant, and, conditions pending, can continue to receive massage all throughout your journey. A pregnant belly may also be massaged, with mommy's permission, of course. This is in fact wonderful to receive and carries a plethora of health benefits for mommy and baby alike.
When and how did you first develop a passion for your work?
My interest in prenatal and perinatal massage therapy really began in late 2011, when I was trained in prenatal and geriatric massage in college. This really took off in 2012, when I became pregnant with my first little one and decided to explore what wonderful benefits I could receive from having a regular pregnancy massage from a credentialed massage practitioner. In June of 2014, I took things a step further and took a continued education course in prenatal and perinatal massage.
Out of your entire repertoire, which is your favorite service to perform and why?
It goes without saying that I most enjoy pregnancy massage, my new specialty. Being a mother of two, there's a whole scale of empathy and understanding that goes with caring for other expecting mothers and their babies. Prenatal massage, for me, is as enjoyable to give as it is to receive, and it is an exceptionally fascinating field of massage. In becoming a prenatal massage specialist, it was a huge development in my growth as both a therapist and a mother.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
Prenatal massage received on a regular basis carries wonderful health benefits. To name a few, these can affect mommy's heart rate and lower the risk of blood-pressure-related pregnancy ailments. Prenatal massage stimulates the flow of fluid between mother and child, optimizing nutrition and minimizing the risk of blood deficiency to the uterus.

Aside from being a premier venue for watching sports, Saloon on Calhoun is a bacon utopia with a daily all-you-can-eat bacon happy hour, bacon-infused vodka, and a menu of bacon-accented pub classics. Widescreen TVs speckle the wooden walls throughout, allowing patrons to catch game replays and Martha Stewart knitting segments from the bar, pool tables, or Internet jukebox. As darts bust cork, thin-crust pizzas present guests with slatherings of homemade sauces and bacon burgers, wraps, and beer-battered fish emit puffs of steam in solidarity with the ears of infuriated cartoon characters. In addition to weekly trivia, karaoke, and live blues events, a fully stocked bar with 15 craft beers tests the limits of patrons' tolerance for fun.
