Licensed acupuncturist Denise Rusnak and licensed massage therapist Nancy Dionisiou fight physical ailments with natural treatments that target the roots of illness.

Decorating Den Interiors' paint consultation peps up blah rooms with splashes of new color. First, décor gurus chat with the client about how each room is used and whether the household includes pets, children, or sentient rutabagas. Then they sidle over in person to enrobe each room in a new palette. Subtle base tones and brighter accents transition gracefully into adjoining spaces, creating a sense of cohesion. Plus, each chamber's color cocktail will be blended with existing furniture fabric in mind so that couches won't feel left out. Today's Groupon should be enough to cover most three-bedroom homes or six-bedroom doghouses. Although not included in today's Groupon, Decorating Den can also tap into the stores of more than 150 suppliers to implement its plan of aesthetic attack.
Diane Garetano's school—whose curriculum covers piano as well as other instruments—was an immediate success in the first year. She was renting space to accommodate her ever-expanding student body and the pianos that kept sprouting extra keys. Today, The Piano Studio for Kids imparts instrument skills at two locations. The school also has evolved in terms of technique, with instructors now incorporating even more methods built on fun, structure, and positive reinforcement. Once a year, students may elect to show off the fruits of these labors, with admission free of charge at a recital culminating in certificates, gift bags, and applause.
