Licensed massage therapist Bilky Joda-Miller believes that massage can do more than just loosen tight muscles. That?s why her signature services go beyond full-body massages?including those for children and infants?to include regimens geared toward the pain relief and detoxification of fertility and prenatal clients. Her belief in the healing nature of her art also extends to cancer survivors and their caregivers, whom she grants special discounts. Whatever their background may be, clients begin their treatment by settling onto a cozy massage table as soft notes of soothing music keep their minds centered and their spirits providing beatbox accompaniment.
Bonnie View Golf Course?s first tee box?outfitted with natural stone seating and a vibrant spread of roses and perennials?serves as a fitting gate to a nine-hole course. The scenic, player-friendly course encompasses three waterfalls and a pond, which often draw visits from whitetail deer, wild turkeys, and sandhill cranes looking for work as forecaddies. Though many of the course?s scenic features stem from recent renovations, it still maintains the same arboreal diversity?the layout boasts more than 100 varieties of trees?common to its early days in the 1940?s. As beautiful as it is bountiful in its resources, the grounds also encompass a patio-flanked club house, where golfers can unwind with a celebratory beer, glass of wine, or soft drink.

At CrossFit Sanction, instructors break fitness success down into three distinct categories. The first is proper technique: the platform for any good fitness regimen. New CrossFitters learn the proper movements the first time they enter the gym, limiting the chance of injury. The second is the effective use of the body's muscle systems??specifically those that allow for fast bursts of speed, long tests of endurance, or powerful feats of strength. Finally, there's mobility: the stretching and calisthenics part of CrossFit that keeps athletes nimble, healthy, and limboing under barbells.
Though Professional Eyecare Center lines its walls with designer frames from brands such as Gucci, Fendi, and Ray-Ban, its staff remains fixated on overall eye health. The team offers preventative eye exams, pre- and post-surgery care, and LASIK consultations for those who may be eligible for permanent vision correction. Team members also perform consultations and examinations designed to reveal signs of trouble and to pair patients with lenses that will finally allow them to find needles in haystacks or craft stores with minimal signage.
