Rondo, the de facto host of Grooming at Tiffany's, happily greets every guest with a hardy handshake. Or if not that, perhaps an exuberant tail wag, an offering of chew sticks … something that lets visitors know they're welcome. The amiable shih tzu-poodle mix belongs to owner Tiffany Perron, who styles canines with the skills she developed at the Dapper Dawg School of Professional Dog Grooming. She and her fellow groomers provide an array of services, from crate-free full groomings to quick touchups for dogs facing short-notice job interviews.
Skin Care and Wellness Studio updates traditional services with contemporary technology and the latest products. And though the business is new, the spa’s owner, Cris-Anne, is far from new to the scene. She’s been in the industry since 1998 and holds licenses in aesthetics and nailcare and certifications from Bioelements and OPI. Likewise, the entire staff is professionally trained, and the range of services offered at Skin Care and Wellness Studio reflects the staff's broad experience. You can get a customized facial, body-waxing treatment, and Shellac manicure all in one visit, or try the ionic-detox system, which infuses charged ions into a relaxing footbath.
HealthSource provides a full range of services for keeping bodies in line, specializing in chiropractic care, massage, and rehabilitation. Massage therapists manipulate distressed deltoids with hands licensed in therapeutic massage and shadow-puppet recitals, relieving pain and tension from shoulders and backs. The chiropractic consultation provides guests with a detailed overview of causes behind specific symptoms, as well as recommended courses of action, all with a greater success rate than using a fly swatter to squash disobedient aches and pains.
Escaping the hustle and bustle of city life usually means hopping on a plane or driving until skyscrapers shrink into the horizon. Sandlot Sports & Entertainment strives to change all that. Their staff maintains recreational facilities where families can enjoy much-deserved getaways, just without all the traveling. During summer months, members spend time on Sandlot’s private, four-acre pond and beach area where they can avoid crowded city beaches and soak up alien messages coded into the sun's rays. Nearby, full-size football and soccer fields, baseball fields, and a performance stage play host to parties and special events. Sandlot uses those same venues during various children's camps throughout the summer, including musical theater camps and the popular Camp Sandlot—weeklong sessions of creative, educational, and athletic activities.
Before looking through the camera lens, the expert photographers at Picture People spend time getting to know their subjects and establishing a strategy for conveying their personalities in print. Then, film-ready clients pose in the bright camera room, airing teeth amid colorful backdrops and creative props.

Picture People encourages subjects to arrive 15 minutes early to the shoot and offers a variety of creative tips to help enhance mantel-dominating final results. The studio ensures satisfaction with a 100% guarantee on finished products.
A company that was built primarily on referrals, Armstrong Heating and Power Vac Inc. has purged ducts and chimneys for more than 40 years. During each air-duct cleaning, trained techs use power-vacuum trucks and custom duct-cleaning equipment to remove dirt and debris without the use of chemicals or sealers, which has a similar effect on a human’s mouth as peanut butter on a dog’s mouth. When they aren't purging residential air canals, technicians clean out dryer vents and chimneys to keep homes’ respiratory systems in working order and prevent the potentially dangerous results of chronic disrepair.:m]]
Featured in numerous media outlets including Dateline NBC and Shape Magazine, board-certified hypnotist Tom Nicoli guides the mind in its quest to reverse unhealthy behaviors through positive, reparative thought. Tom's A Better You weight-loss series primes client psyches to opt for healthier eats, boost physical activity, and refrain from carrying any more unnecessary anvils. Rather than pine on each patient's mistakes, Tom tries to mend negative patterns such as emotional eating, cravings, and portion control through positive motivation and the reversal of unconscious habits. Most clients schedule their trio of sessions over a 2–3 week span, and, although some see positive results after only three appointments, others may require additional sessions before feeling ready to reconnect with their estranged bathroom scales. For at-home reiteration, Tom also supplies his clients with two 27-minute CDs chockfull of aural support.
