Though its name stems from its signature service, Touch Massage has recently expanded its focus to encompass a range of spa treatments and wellness services. Inside the spa, massage therapists ease muscular pain through long strokes and focused pressure during eight types of massage, including Swedish, deep tissue, prenatal, sports, and reflexology. They further encourage relaxation with add-ons such as aromatherapy oils, which blend scents of tangerine, pine, eucalyptus, basil, distilled Hawaiian sunshine, and peppermint. The staff also performs facials that rely on organic oils, deep-cleansing skincare products, and vitamin-infused solutions. To tend to clients? joints as well as skin, the spa's two owners?both certified Pilates instructors?teach slow, rhythmic movements in Pilates Reformer classes. A trusted destination for great massages for 10 years, Touch recently relocated across the street, taking their shop from Beverly Hills to LA, and evolving into a destination of overall wellness. Take relaxation to another level thanks to their dedicated, underground parking making your visit that much easier.
Laura Monahan comes from an artistic family, and spent her youth practicing sculpture, oil painting, pottery, and what turned out to be her ultimate passion: photography. Her ability to preserve candid moments has left an indelible impression?she has a published portfolio on three continents and product lines appearing at national retailers such as Hallmark and JCPenney. Laura?s photo shoots always take place outdoors, capturing newborns, older kids, and families in soft, natural lighting and poses that never appear unnatural. Her settings span the country from San Diego?s foamy beaches to Denver?s red-rock sunsets and into the Midwest?s autumn leaves, and she holds mom's night out events all over the country, including in Honolulu, San Diego, Minneapolis, Chicago, and Denver.
Since 1962, Thunderbird Aviation has nested at Minneapolis?s Flying Cloud and Crystal airports, sending on-demand charters skyward, offering aircraft repairs and parts, and training new pilots. Composed of Cessna planes, the aviation agency?s fleet runs the gamut from light, sport aircraft to twin-engine Seminoles, and encompasses one of the state?s largest selections of instructional aircraft. Certified flight instructors accompany student pilots on their journeys. As novices approach pilot certification, they can augment their hours in the cockpit with time in an FAA-approved flight simulator, which is more useful than its unapproved counterpart, jumping on your bed while cawing.
The Life Time Turkey Day 5K jump-starts Thanksgiving celebrations with a healthy, full-body feast of exercise, with proceeds benefiting local food organizations.

Additionally, strollers are permitted during the race but must line up behind individual runners and must not be equipped with nitrous.
Lara Olson was unhappy with the quality of art education her children were receiving in school. Taking matters into her own hands, she decided to open Kidcreate Studio as a place where youngsters can exercise their creative muscles while practicing the visual arts in a fun learning environment. The studio?s curriculum immerses students in the kaleidoscopic world of art through professional lesson plans, incorporating media ranging from watercolor paints and pencils to clay and cloth. Birthday parties at the studio keep children thoroughly engaged with hands-on activities and themed projects, and play groups lasting up to three hours give kids enough time to make new friends or think up at least a dozen more imaginary ones.
