Health coach and nutrition expert Theresa Grisanti's path to a healthy relationship with food hasn't been easy. Once while in college, and again after the birth of her children, Theresa found herself using food as an emotional crutch and putting her own health at risk. Both times, however, she was able to pull herself out, and in both cases, she sites her ability to establish a mind-body connection as the reason. Through her work, she aims to help others turn around their unhealthy eating habits, and she believes that the only way to fix bad habits is to understand where they stem from. With a focus on emotional healing and extensive nutrition education, Theresa aims to help guests find the correct combinations of foods and equips them with the knowledge necessary to make healthy choices.

Man's best friend isn't just a pet to the staff at this pup parlor, but a member of their client's family. As such, each canine is treated like a four-legged king and rewarded with luxuries ranging from spa appointments to birthday parties.

Though denied a driver's license by state law, furry pals can still get from point A to B with taxi services, which employ a van outfitted with special harnesses to shuttle dogs to their daycare or grooming sessions. The Good Dog Spot also boasts a small boutique stocked with pet food, collars, and treats from local New England manufacturers and trusted national brands.
