Although most gyms claim to be safety-conscious, few can say they have a chiropractor on-staff. Guilford CrossFit, however, counts two chiropractors?both of whom train at the gym?among their staff, helping CrossFit-certified trainers safely whip clients into shape. Trainers push clients to overcome their own perceived limitations through an intense strength-and-conditioning program that incinerates fat with the same techniques used by tactical operations teams, military special-operations units, and champion martial artists. Customized regimens of intense functional movements change daily, but often include weightlifting, plyometrics, and chasing passing police cars on foot.
Founded in 2006 by plastic surgeon Dr. Deborah Pan, Esana Plastic Surgery Center and MedSpa was voted best medical spa by Connecticut Magazine in 2010 for its wide variety of aesthetic services, including facials, peels, laser skin treatment, and full cosmetic surgery.

A graduate of the Rolf Institute of Structural Integration, Rachel Felson helms New Haven Rolfing, where she performs the specialized service in an effort to release built-up tensions and adhesions in clients of varying ages and backgrounds. During Rolfing sessions, Felson manually loosens connective tissue, or fascia, by kneading the labyrinthine network with her fingers, hands, and elbows. After roughly one hour of the holistic bodywork, visitors may notice an improvement in their health, observing higher levels of elasticity in their tissue and a greater feeling of balance on tightrope commutes to work. Among its myriad benefits, Rolfing boasts the ability to improve individuals’ posture, decrease anxiety levels, and amplify energy for long-distance pogo-stick marathons.

For the latter, she has been able to access desirable pricing thanks to her years spent as an industry insider.
