Matthew Leahy could be called a body mechanic—and not just because he works on Ironmen during their triathlon events. He's memorized the ways that the body's components can move, stretch, and strain, causing tension to accumulate in muscles. His massage treatments try to alleviate that tension with several modalities. From flowing Swedish kneads to the targeted pressure that addresses sports injuries, his approaches are customized to each client. He has also mastered ART, or active release techniques, a system of massage and specific movements that aims to restore tight, overworked tissues to their healthy state.
At Metro Eye Care, a staff of experts checks the ocular health of clients aged 5 and older and helps to improve vision with ideal sets of glasses, contacts, or shades. Comprehensive eye exams with the optometrist not only yield prescriptions, but also check for disorders, diseases, and the mythical apple of each patient's eye. After the proper prescription has been identified, a team member can help patrons to peruse the vast collection of designer eyewear from brands including bebe, BCGB, and Nike. Metro Eye Care fits these frames with lenses that range from basic plastic varieties to Gunnar Advanced Computer Eyewear. For a frame-free style, the staff also fits eyes with contact lenses.
At Karma Therapeutics, massage therapists soothe clients' minds and bodies with a variety of relaxing services.

At Thrive Chiropractic, Dr. Molly Kallenbach and her fellow practitioners tackle clients’ ailments by integrating traditional medical solutions with nutritional counseling and blood testing. Exams and digital x-rays pinpoint the source of the pain, while adjustments, spinal decompression, and FDA-cleared laser therapy treat troubled muscle tissue. The team helps clients shed stubborn extra pounds with clinically supervised weight loss programs such as their comprehensive 8 Weeks to Wellness regimen. During the course, practitioners analyze 42 wellness indicators through lab work and tests before crafting custom plans that often find clients up to 26 pounds lighter upon their conclusion. With extensive training in the clinical biomechanics of posture, Molly can also coach busy professionals on how to out-pose the Venus de Milo.
The 180 Image staff is equipped with the skills and tools needed to refresh faces and relax muscles with professional panache. During the hour-long Swedish massage, the mitten fillers of a master massage therapist will skate smooth circles and figure eights on the surface of your back, boosting circulation, oxygenating muscles, and promoting peacefulness. Catapult your countenance to healthier-life levels with the Serenity Indulgence facial, which includes a thorough cleansing and skin analysis. Steam vapor will open up shy pores, releasing dirt and grime like so many social inhibitions, and a subsequent toning, exfoliation, and face, neck, and décolleté massage will insert good feeling into an increasingly fresh outward appearance. This facial is preventative for younger clients, rejuvenating for mature clients, and ineffective for immature manchildren.
