Amy and Miguel of The MacSpa put their technological expertise to work both at their facility’s spa-inspired space and clients' homes to repair Macs, iPhones, and iPads. While they wait for diagnostic, upgrade, or data-recovery treatments to be completed, patrons peruse a rotating selection of local artwork hanging on the shop's exposed brick walls. In addition to optimization, the crew administers creative services including graphic and website design, presentations, and e-book publishing.

Named best massage/facial service by Connecticut magazine for five years running, Tranquility places an emphasis on natural, holistic treatments. Customers enter a lobby decorated in soothing earth tones through a portal wreathed with vines, where they can then choose their preferred method of relaxation, beautification, and stress lancing. The light-to-medium pressure of a Swedish massage can improve muscle tone and stimulate circulation that stalls during the course of long workdays and transcontinental boat rides in sedentary soil boxes. The Rejuvenating facial, with its deep cleansing, toning, exfoliation, mask, and extractions, can hydrate the skin and reduce evidence of aging. Additionally, customers who spend a total of $400 (including this Groupon) in November and December at the spa and attached shop will receive a $50 gift certificate though the Shop and Save Days program.

At the tender age of 6, Mark Cafiero received his first camera. Though it was broken and filled with cartoons his father had drawn of Mark and his sisters, that camera sparked an early interest in photography. Since then, that spark has erupted into a full-fledged passion, leading Mark to become a professional photographer who has snapped photos for hundreds of clients, including celebrities and professional athletes. To share his spark with others, Mark founded Chimpsy, an resource that helps photographers of all experience levels calibrate their skills with casual in-person and online classes.

Available in more than 30 cities across the nation, Chimpsy's two-hour crash course features a hands-on shooting session and campfire-style presentation on topics ranging from camera anatomy to photo composition. For home study, online classes help photographers—beginners and aspiring pros alike—get more from their pictures through two-hour video tutorials that cover photo-editing software, shooting tips and techniques, and steps on how to build a photography business. From the comfort of their bedrooms, students can watch these professional photographer-led tutorials live or replay previously recorded sessions. Along with instructional classes, Chimpsy offers shutterbugs a place to submit photos for contests with monthly prizes or for feedback from peers, pros, and sentient picture frames.

As memory cards replaced film reels, many photographers—both professional and amateur—felt befuddled by the new technology. That's where Digital Photo Academy stepped in. Since 2007, the business has facilitated workshops that explore all aspects of digital imagery, from operating cameras and uploading digital files to editing images and airbrushing realistic mustaches. Seasoned professionals lead the courses, helping understudies hone their use of light, framing, and timing. Students furnish their own cameras, and can tote along any ancillary equipment such as tripods, laptops, and flashes that relate to the course at hand.
