The team of experienced therapists at Rebound Massage Therapy and Sports Wellness treat all of their clients with the same care they would show to a professional athlete. They design each of their massages with the end result in mind: depending on their individual clients, they might rely on relaxing Swedish strokes, stretching kneads, or trigger-point techniques that train muscles to kick their bad habits.

At Studio Golf, players smack their golf balls into a large screen that displays a highly accurate visual of a real golf course and uses ball flight information to produce real-world results. Rather than travel to oft-distant courses and schlep their clubs around 18 holes, players get to remain indoors and let the computer do the traveling for them. The system can be configured for lessons and clinics in addition to 9- or 18-hole rounds, allowing players to focus on aspects of their game such as drives off the tee or iron approaches.
Boasting 55 years of educational experience and a 100% passing rate for all graduates in 2010 and 2011, Gary Knepler Driving School specializes in making independent motoring accessible to both first-time students and drivers with special needs. During the eight-hour classroom course, students will be taught the ins, outs, and U-turns of safe driving, such as when it is appropriate to pass on the right or through the picture windows of a mall. This course helps new drivers meet some of the state requirements for obtaining a driver's license, including the required two-hour parent component. Grouponers can receive a $100 discount off the full 30-hour classroom/8-hour driving training program (a $699 value).
The staff members at Sylvan Learning's numerous centers understand that each child learns differently. Therefore, they don’t try to implement a uniform tutoring system; instead, they design custom lesson programs based on the results of a skills assessment using diagnostic tools and one-on-one interviews.
Tutors work with students from pre-kindergarten through grade 12, illuminating topics ranging from basic reading and writing to remembering complex algebraic formulas without having them tattooed on your chest. Many of Sylvan’s instructors work in local schools, so they are intimately familiar with common curricula and understand how to gear lessons toward optimal results.
