Michaela Torcaso, the owner and CEO of Tibia Healing Center, couldn't decide what the world needed more—inner or outer peace—so she decided to give it both. The former begins its incubation in the massage school, where aspiring massage therapists spend 675 hours training for their certification. From there, calm is channeled through graduates' hands and into the minds and muscles of the clients of the Tibia Healing Center, where myriad modalities address everything from injury to stress from trying to balance a checkbook on one's nose.

When she's not planting the seeds of inner peace in her clients, Tibia's owner is spreading it outwards through her nonprofit, Creating a Peaceful World, which volunteers healing bodywork services to individuals including the families of murder victims and charity participants. Torcaso also offers scholarships to aspiring massage therapists who need financial assistance to pursue their education.

Personal Gun Trainer's NRA-certified instructors, Auric Gold and Andrea Alongi, design firearm classes based on the latest Wisconsin gun laws. These include beginner-friendly courses on the state's concealed-carry laws, during which the instructors not only teach how to carry a pistol, they also explain the subtle mental skills required to be a responsible firearms owner. Aside from these custom-designed programs, the gun experts teach lessons straight from the NRA curriculum. During NRA pistol courses, they lecture on safety and then teach hands-on skills for various calibers of firearms.

And these techniques aren't just useful for literature and cereal-box backs. Classes cover strategies for magazines, newspapers, technical manuals, and websites, stressing the importance of retention and productivity along the way. Upon completion of Iris Reading's courses, students have reported the ability to tear through their reading material up to five times faster.

Wisconsin Aviation Academy may have started small in 1981, but you'd never guess it now. The flight school today boasts a fleet of about 20 airplanes, ranging from two-seat trainers to jets that offer a luxurious flying experience that rivals being carried on a palanquin by bald eagles. Some aircraft are best for charter flights, others for rentals, and still others?the 110-horsepower Cessna 152, for instance?for flight lessons.

These lessons help aviation students obtain their private pilots license and feature both flight and ground-school instruction with an instructor. For learning about risky situations, there's also an ultra-lifelike flight simulator.

A former private detective and bodyguard, Tim draws upon his firsthand experience to teach self-defense skills and safety procedures at Wisconsin Concealed Carry Training Academy. In courses with or without a shooting component, the NRA-certified instructor creates an interactive, comfortable environment for students to learn about safe weapon handling and storage, the parts of a firearm, and state gun laws. Though he trains pupils in shooting fundamentals at a local outdoor range, Tim also stresses self-protection alternatives such as pepper spray. Once classes wrap up, he happily answers any lingering questions.
