A swimmer stands at the edge of the pool, scanning the bottom for her lost goggles. The water is so crystal clear that she spots them immediately and dives to retrieve them. This pool was cleaned by Shane Allen's Pool Service, whose team uses green methods to maintain pool clarity and keep chemicals balanced. The technicians also repair any pool parts, including pumps, motors, and filters to keep water algae-free so pool owners don’t have to hire freelance catfish.

At The Arc, trained staffers use up-to-date technologies to firm skin and battle body fat. Each 45-minute body-contouring treatment begins with the application of a special slimming gel. Next, a technician encases the body in a far-infrared slimming blanket designed to relax the muscles, release toxins, and seal in freshness. During the 45-minute cellulite body-reshaping treatment, on the other hand, an UltraLipo machine uses ultrasonic radiofrequencies to penetrate the skin’s layers, while the Thermo C system introduces vacuum massage in the same visit. Altogether, the treatment relies on four different strategies to nix fat in bellies, buttocks, thighs, and hips. The Arc’s private rooms ensure modest, comfortable treatments or clandestine exchanges of classified documents.
