For more than five decades, the friendly staffers at Ross Cleaners have emancipated stains from the shackles of linens through speedy dry-cleaning and laundering services.

Clients can also bring dastardly dirt to justice with wash-dry-fold services that clean multiple items at once before organizing them for easy stuffing in card catalogs ($1.80 per pound).
Ali Mohammad and Nadeem Mazen never got the memo that it was dangerous to play with lasers; they’re willing to carve intricate graphics into almost anything, including the 215 loaves of bread it took to animate the autumnal music video for OK Go’s “Last Leaf.” Now, from their shop—whose sign warns passersby that “it’s the future in here”—they etch equally creative messages and images into the gadgets and gewgaws of their clientele. Laptops, iPhones, and other electronics take on customization, as well as items stocked by the shop itself, from metal business cards to pint glasses and hardwood planks awaiting to become personalized kindling. The showcase demonstrates their expertise with pictures of previous projects, such as a guitar body carved with an elaborate swan and a kitchen knife inscribed with an ominous message.
Hypnotherapy runs in Rebekah DeMartino's family. She spent her childhood watching her grandfather guide clients to well-being through hypnotherapy—a task to which he devoted 35 years of his life. Today, the certified hypnotherapist honors her grandfather at her hypnotherapy practice, Able Success Hypnosis. Through self-improvement and recreational hypnotherapy, she decimates barriers that keep her clients from wellness. Self-improvement hypnosis can preempt the subconscious precursors to poor behaviors, such as smoking or overeating, or simply ease anxiety. Recreational hypnosis, on the other hand, exists solely for fun, allowing clients to relive memories, unearth the secrets of past lives, or reflect on a deeper level.
