The licensed massage therapist at Ahimsa Healing pulls out every tool in the musculoskeletal toolbox, calling on everything from the popular gliding strokes of Swedish massage to the energy-based healing techniques of Japanese reiki to defeat chronic pain. Visits begin with an intake form, on which clients or enchanted pencils scribble down notes regarding chronic conditions or injuries so that therapists can design a custom pain-relieving treatment. Nimble hands then manipulate muscles, calling upon deep-tissue kneads to offset injuries and craniosacral therapy to reduce headaches caused by accidentally holding your helmet and wearing your jackhammer.
Staffers describe Life Transformation Fitness as "an exclusive fitness facility with the amenities of a large facility. When members swipe their key fobs to enter the 24-hour gym, or wrap up a workout with smoothie or sauna session, they'll begin to see why. The facility is designed to be a flexible space that makes working out easy. Amenities range from the small details, like the personal TVs stationed at every cardio machine, to the Kids Club, which keeps littler visitors occupied instead of being confused for dumbbells. During personal training sessions, participants receive iPad-friendly guidance with help from the facility's Activtrax progress-tracking system. But perhaps the gym's most prized facility is its spacious interior itself. Airy and brimming with top-notch equipment, the space makes it easy for clients to curate their own routines and exceed fitness goals.

The husband-and-wife photography duo of Aubree and David Hahn provide moment-capturing services with professional panache. Together they make a practice of using their engaging personalities to lure each individual's essence from within, and then mercilessly capture it on film. Your photo session will include a 60-minute shoot to snap pristine poses of up to four people, so feel sure to invite your most contemplative or snap-happy friends and family members for the revealing session, even if it’s just you, yourself, and your personal poltergeist George. All snapshots from the photo session can be viewed in an online gallery the following day, and your favorite will be made into an 11"x14" print. Or, you can purchase up to three Groupons and combine all of them for one 16"x20" Giclée print and 30% off additional services.

Pairing works by local artists with museum-quality framing, Prairiebrooke Arts is both a gallery and preservation studio. Canvases, sculptures, and intricately blown glass dot the studio's walls and tables, representing handsome finished works available for sale. To help decorate homes and businesses, the gallery's staff performs on-site artistic consultations wherein they discuss with clients which piece would best complement a room's color scheme or its resident stack of old magazines.
An equally discerning eye is cast on each of Prairiebrooke Arts' framing projects. Fine art consultants offer their ideas for how to best frame a photo or piece of art, whether employing gold leaf, French details, or museum-grade preservation materials. Their talents also extend into three-dimensional pieces, which stand inside shadow boxes that display objects such as colorful fishing lures and baby shoes.
