Healing Hands Massage?s scheduling book never has back-to-back appointments. So if someone has a 60-minute deep-tissue massage at 1 p.m. with licensed massage therapist Howard Dodd?who is also a certified personal trainer and lead instructor of the massage program at Lincoln Technical Institute?s Brockton Campus?there won?t be a Swedish massage at 2 p.m. with Dodd, however, appointments would be available to schedule with another licensed massage therapist. This scheduling approach allows the clients to enjoy their massage service without feeling rushed out the door. Adding to the comfort, the staff can customize its kneads to alleviate pain, tension, and ailments from common sports injuries, such as spraining a muscle or mistaking a bowling ball for a basketball and trying to dunk it.
At Good Days, the gears on a 1950s vending machine turn, sending a Coca-Cola bottle tumbling to the bottom. Smiles festoon vintage photos hanging on walls. And on hot days, an ice cream window refuses to stay shut, its staffer serving an endless line of customers who await their chance at a locally-made scoop. This is where the nostalgic and the simply hungry go to quell their cravings for American fare and breakfast served all day. In booths and at tables, forks dive into fish and chips, moist turkey roasted in house, and French toast made with dense slices of banana-nut bread. The restaurant is open seven days a week, just enough time to try almost everything on the menu or proclaim a new favorite dish 21 times.
At i Free To Be Hypnosis, certified hypnotist Larry Quemere helps patients to overcome anxiety, habitual behaviors, and other issues through guided hypnosis sessions and personal coaching.

Inside Morrell's Country Tavern, plates arrive at tables piled high with fish 'n' chips and grilled sirloin tips marinated in bourbon sauce. After perusing the menu, diners can savor the seasoned bread crumbs on their baked scrod or dip a spoon into a brimming bowl of new england clam chowder.
Though its name evokes Italian cuisine, Cafe Romano supplements its Italian bites with American diner classics. Old-country entrees such as frittatas or a dish of eggs, red bliss potatoes, and meat share space on the breakfast menu with American-style hash browns and eggs. At lunch, diners can dig into housemade lasagna or pastrami sandwiches.
