Mark Toomey once helmed his own recruitment firm in Nottingham, England, on the outskirts of Sherwood Forest, but a disdain for damp winters led him to the sun-drenched beaches of Siesta Key. Since opening Robin Hood Rentals in 2009, Mark has persevered through what he calls "Florida's harshest winter in 30 years," during which temperatures teetered near the freezing mark. He equips visitors with rental land-based and aquatic craft that let them explore the area without having to saddle a horse or propose to a dolphin.

From its perch near the Jim Neville Marine Preserve, the company fits cyclists with a range of beach, mountain, and tandem bicycles; matches riders to a fleet of two-seat 49cc automatic scooters; and trains visitors to venture off on newer-model i2 LeanSteer Segways. They also let kayakers explore the local waterways from sunrise into the nighttime.

At Acupuncture and Holistic Medicine Healing Center, skilled Eastern medicine practitioner Dr. Glenn Eichenauer targets and relieves chronic pain and discomfort with sterile needles during holistic acupuncture treatments. During the 90-minute new-patient exam and initial treatment, patients discuss their health history as Eichenauer examines them to develop a personalized plan to banish chronic pain such as headaches and arthritis, sports injuries, paper cuts, and a wide variety of other discomforts. Then, he applies sterile needles into the skin, pinpointing specific zones across the body to manage the energy flow, which soothes and assuages patients' pain. A second appointment continues the healing and rejuvenating process as the ancient holistic art battles aches for another 60 minutes.

The relaxing treatments take place in private treatment rooms accented by dark wood cabinets and blown-glass fish, sending patients into a serene state not experienced since languidly backstroking in a cozy womb.

Director Ginny East's illustrious dance career has taken her around the country, from the Manhattan studios where she trained to schools and companies in Boston, St. Louis, and New York where she's taught and worked as a choreographer. Now she leads a team of lifelong dance lovers at ReFlex Arts in Sarasota, where she also co-directed the successful Flex Dance Studios for nearly two decades. It was while working at this latter location that, out of a belief that a studio should put just as much thought into its children's classes as its adult classes, she began developing her own youth-dance curriculum, known today as Kiddance. Like someone who was sent a link to a video of pandas rollerblading, the idea clicked: East soon began selling her syllabus to teachers from across the country, along with accompanying training videos and CDs. But even as kids' classes remain a focus for East—the Children's Dance Center teaches students ages two to eight basic dance skills and proper studio etiquette—she's found a way to incorporate into the center her additional expertise as a certified yoga instructor. Packed with exercises performed on suspended strips of cloth, the center's aerial yoga classes help students develop the gracefulness they need to execute a pirouette or climb a ladder on a unicycle. Since all the activities at ReFlex Arts involve developing the capabilities of the body, it makes sense that the center would also help visitors unwind with massage and body treatments. Services draw on techniques from around the world, from the popular gliding strokes of Swedish massage to the ancient Japanese healing motions of reiki.

In a profile for Plastic Surgery Practice's 2011 Top Docs feature, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Christian Drehsen described how a person's entire facial expression, rather than just sagging cheeks or crow's-feet, is the object of his practice at Venus Clinique Spa by Clinique of Plastic Surgery. This comprehensive approach reflects his mastery of artistic composition, as well as his extensive experience, which is capped by more than two decades of sculpting the denizens of the Tampa Bay area, including mermaids built in sand. After thorough immersion in all fields of plastic surgery at the University of Louisville, Kentucky, he sought out specialized studies in hand surgery and microsurgery and developed a deft touch with children and burn victims during his residency at Morton Children's Hospital in Louisville. His steady hand is constantly innovating ways to harmonize features. He reimagined the face-lift to replicate the firm cheeks and stifling ennui of someone in their mid-twenties and repurposed clients' fat cells as catalysts for their own rejuvenation. Computer imaging helps his patients to see and evaluate what he envisions and then collaborate in the creative process. His practice has grown to three locations, two of which offer non-surgical aging solutions. There, medical aestheticians lavish complexions in carefully engineered Obagi and SkinMedica products while a nurse practitioner injects wrinkles and sagging cheeks with seven kinds of FDA approved dermal fillers and volumizers. Lasers work overtime at the spa, smoothing cellulite, routing unwanted hair and veins, and promoting even skin all over the body.

The quote “Everything seems impossible … until it’s done!” adorns the walls of Apple Jelly Studios, inspiring the women within the private studio to achieve their fitness goals. Drawn together by a shared love of pole dancing, a quartet of women decided to spearhead the private studio, where they continue to teach dancing and fitness classes today alongside a handpicked crew of certified female instructors. Reflected in wall-to-wall mirrors, they teach students of all shapes and sizes to twirl around eight chrome poles during beginner, advanced, and intermediate pole-dancing and pole-trick classes, boosting confidence, toning muscles, and burning calories. Certified instructors also lead a variety of yoga, Pilates, and boot-camp classes upon the studio’s hardwood floors.

The studio rents its facilities out for private events, providing pole-dancing instruction, sultry red lighting, and a professional sound system for bachelorette parties, birthdays, and brazen knitting circles.

Natural Health Center's doctor of oriental medicine, Mary Kay Cetan, taps into the ideologies of traditional Chinese medicine, which dates back more than 5,000 years and conceptualizes the body as a landscape affected by emotional and physical climates. Holistic services and supplements combat both acute and chronic ailments. Hair-thin acupuncture needles safely boost blood and energy flow to assuage pain and enhance internal functions, such as the digestive process that turns blue cotton candy back into blueberries. A licensed massage therapist with more than 35 years of kneading experience aims soothing strokes at pent-up aches, tension, and knots. Honed over 2,000 years, homeopathy mediates bodily discordances with diluted doses of irritants, such as a naturally derived onion substance that wards off watery eyes or a pulverized Cupid's arrow that heals heartbroken clients.
