Jeff Haskins understands stress. In addition to playing college football, he worked in a prosecutor's office, as a stockbroker, and as a stock market regulatory investigator before deciding to pursue a more tranquil path that allowed him to ease the stress in others. He established Relaxation Station Massage & Bodywork in 2006, where he continues to calm overly talkative nerves with an array of specialized massage modalities.
Since virtually every treatment is customized to his client's needs, Jeff begins each massage with a brief consultation to understand how they hope to feel by the end. Using this information, he targets knotted muscles with a combination of flowing strokes, rocking motions, and focused pressure intended to ease physical and mental tension. These techniques reinvigorate recipients by boosting circulation to the treated areas, increasing joint flexibility, and helping the body naturally heal any damaged tissue.
General dentists, certified lab technicians, and specialists in areas from root canals to orthodontia work together on Columbia Dental’s diverse team. They safeguard smiles with a comprehensive array of services, placing special emphasis on disease prevention with rigorous exams, cleanings, and digital x-rays. However, when disease strikes, the team can treat it in-house, tending to inflamed gums and eliminating chronic pain with root canals. The staff can also straighten crooked smiles with Invisalign treatments, which are more effective than constructing mouth guards from rulers. The office accommodates hectic schedules by staying open seven days a week, with evening appointments available.
Dr. Jeff Martone, DPM, FACFAS and the staff at Family Foot Care Center's two offices help feet find relief from disease-, age-, and grape stomping-related symptoms with an array of services.

In addition to treating foot woes, the staff contributes to patients' podiatric knowledge with a slew of educational resources available on its website.
Each instructor at Evolution Pilates is certified through Stott Pilates, which requires a minimum of 200 hours of training.

At Monaco Center for Health & Healing, Dr. John B. Monaco and his staff of certified weight-loss counselors assist clients in shedding pounds through the Ideal Protein weight-loss plan. At the introductory seminar, Dr. Monaco expounds upon the four-phase Ideal Protein program, employing pyrotechnical displays to convey the weight-loss potential of cutting carbohydrates from the diet. Clients sample nutritious dishes during the seminar to get a feel for the meals included with the program. A personal weight-loss counselor then meets with waist-whittlers weekly for 15 minutes or longer to field nutrition questions and discuss progress in weight, body fat, muscle mass, and antler growth.
