The mind and the body receive equal attention at Hoboken Wellness Spa. The staff seeks to create a holistic community that will educate patrons on the health benefits of ayurveda, an alternative medicine philosophy that originated in ancient India. Aiming to emulate the word ayurveda itself—which means "knowledge for long life"—it focuses on each individual's body type to yield the best results. People with a pitta body type might need treatments such as a cooling cucumber and peppermint footbath followed by a medicated-oil massage. Staffers might recommend a warm ginger footbath for those with the kapha body type, along with an herbal tea eye treatment that enhances that ability to read Earl Grey leaves. The team also offers waxing and threading services to leave skin smooth.

?I knew dentistry was for me when I was just 8 years old,? Dr. Joseph Zagami muses in his bio. He had just gotten a number of fillings, and the young Zagami thought his dentist?s skills were akin to a magician. Since then, he's lived and breathed dentistry, having served a residency at Lutheran Medical Center and lectured at universities and professional functions. Dr. LuAnne M. Curatola took a different approach?the devoted student decided to double-major in biology and art history, so that when it came time to attend the NYU College of Dentistry, she had a background in science and a sharp attention to detail. At their clinic, both dentists check for signs of disease and decay during routine checkups, and perform more specialized services such as extractions and dental implants that look, feel, and taste like real teeth.

Murder mysteries should be anything but silly. That’s the view espoused by Live In Theater Productions, the brainchild of prolific actor and playwright Carlo D'Amore. Eschewing the goofy tone of some other shows, Live In Theater plunges participants into cases that take their immersive details from unsolved, historical murders in New York. Showgoers make their way along the city streets where the real crimes once took place, interrogating actors playing roles ranging from 19th-century Irish slumlords to strung-out 1970s junkies. Each event plays out differently as the amateur sleuths weigh evidence, pursue leads, and finally find some use for their pocket-sized polygraphs, creating a one-of-a-kind adventure that earned a 2012 Drama Desk nomination for Unique Theatrical Experience.
