Giant fire trucks, prehistoric temples, and towering superheroes fill Monkey Town Party & Play Center’s 15,000-square-foot indoor playground. Sock-clad children scale ropes up 20-foot-tall inflated climbing walls and spring through the multi-colored interiors of six bounce houses, while parents watch from comfortable massage chairs or join the festivities themselves. Games of air hockey provide a break between bounces, and a hurricane simulator provides all the thrills of high-force winds with none of the storm-chasers. For special events, cosmic parties create a kid-friendly club with moving laser lights and music blasted from a 5,000-watt sound system. Monkey Town can also customize parties to suit needs and budget, and hosts Parent’s Night Out events to give adults an evening to themselves as the crew supervises their children.
With more than 370 locations and 300,000 patients, HealthSource Chiropractic and Progressive Rehab brings well-trained doctors and, thus, pain relief to all corners of the continental United States. Each office’s staff provides treatments designed to quell lower-back and leg pain, vertigo, scoliosis, migraines, and carpal tunnel. Rather than rely on what they call passive chiropractic care—roller tables, heat packs, ice packs—the staffers at HealthSource mostly prescribe an active care plan to patients. This means they will perform rehabilitation routines alongside chiropractic adjustments to soothe muscle spasms, increase flexibility, and straighten posture so much that local schoolmarms begin suffering from midlife crises en masse.
At GOGA Studios, 10-minute sessions on whole-body-vibration GOGA platforms pair with infrared saunas, himalayan salt lamps, and ionized water to detoxify and rejuvenate bodies. Each experience at GOGA centers on the FDA-recognized vibrating platforms, which oscillate and simulate a walking motion. This causes muscles to contract up to 30 times per second for a multitude of benefits, such as weight loss, toned muscles, decreased stress, and an improved shimmy. Sessions in the infrared sauna further aid weight loss by stimulating the body’s metabolism with warm, soothing infrared light.
Licensed massage therapist and Associated Bodywork & Massage Professionals member Danielle Eaton specializes in a range of modalities, including Swedish, deep tissue, and hot stone. The team at LaRosa Massage Therapy also diffuses stress with a variety of aromatic facials and body treatments, such as the Cinnamon Cocoa Delight body wrap, which envelops the body in warmer and more fragrant ingredients than a tracksuit sewn by Keebler elves.
For more than two decades, the experienced technicians at In The Nails have been making Huntsville’s scenery brighter by outfitting its residents with vibrant polish and artificial nails as well as pampering clients with a selection of skincare and massage services, including deep-tisse and shiatsu treatments.

Along with the expert nailcare that inspired the salon’s name, the team promotes all-over wellness with massages, peels, waxing, and other clinical skincare services and participates in community-service efforts to keep discarded hangnails off the streets.
