The aestheticians at Forever Young Day Spa & Laser Center seamlessly integrate medical technology into treatments that balance both skin and body. To ensure that the journey toward hair-free limbs and winkle-free brows is safe and efficient, the team relies on FDA-cleared lasers and cosmetic injections. Meanwhile, nimble hands wield hair-fine acupuncture needles, deliver flowing effleurage strokes, and place hot stones with precision to reap both physical and mental benefits. Traditional facials deploy serums rich in botanically derived antioxidants and vitamins from skincare lines such as Credentials to empty pores and rejuvenate complexions. More advanced counterparts use low-level electrical and sonic frequencies to boost skin elasticity and rid the dermal surface of bacteria and pigmentation.
The wellness specialists at Ultimate Spa by Adela immerse clients in restorative treatments with body-, skin-, and nail-care services. The team works to target facial services for specific skin types, ensuring that each face receives proper exfoliation, hydration, and cleansing products. In addition to nourishing clients’ natural masks, the team performs body treatments such as reflexology, aromatherapy, and sea-mud therapy to help boost circulation and overall wellness. Waxing and massage-therapy services are also available to help clients remove unwanted hair or gain enough flexibility to fix the leak under the sink and finally stop swimming inside the house.
At Liberty Bell Roast Beef & Seafood, a menu of tasty American cuisine is coupled with a backdrop of New England maritime décor and a pillar-surrounded seating area. Settle into an authentic northeasterly dining experience with a medium bowl of specialty clam chowder, which, like minutemen, fights off hunger tyranny ($4.50), or pacify an irascible stomach with a super roast-beef sandwich, a layered masterpiece melded together with slow-cooked Angus beef and served on your choice of a regular or toasted onion roll ($5.95). Atlantic seaboard sustenance includes fried clam strips, patriotically sidekicked by french fries, onion rings, and coleslaw ($9.50), while the crazy veggie roll-up binds grilled red onions, grilled mushrooms, black olives, roasted peppers, gooey melted cheese, lettuce, and tomato in an edible straitjacket ($5.50).
For more than 35 years, the dedicated soap wardens at Sal’s Custom Dry Cleaning have been pampering the delicate dermises of fine fabrics and garments.

Pick-up and delivery services are also available for busy customer bodies and Greta Garbo impersonators.
After experiencing a very difficult time in her life, mother and entrepreneur Lauri Meizler was in search of a healthy start. She went down many paths to recover, but the results were less than optimal: instead of feeling energized, she found herself lethargic and underweight. It wasn’t until discovering cleansing and Ayurveda, one of the world's oldest medical systems, that life began to change. Soon thereafter, she adapted the teachings of the combination, and has since felt energetic, balanced, and in control of her life once again.
Lauri received certifications as a health coach in raw foods and Ayurveda and pairs the ancient Indian tradition’s holistic-wellness practices with modern nutrition training to help others optimize their health and well-being through eating a predominantly plant-rich diet. Her company, Joos, funnels these nutritious ingredients into bottles to help on-the-go people to build healthy, sustainable eating habits.
In flavors such as green lemonade, citrus refresh, and antioxidant blast, these wholesome potables teem with ingredients such as fresh-pressed, unpasteurized apples, ginger, and bok choy. Each bottle contains 10–14 types of garden-grown goodness, which amount to two times the daily requirement of fruits, veggies, and scarecrow smiles. The juices can fortify meals with vitamins and minerals or serve as the meals themselves during cleanses, which last 5–21 days. Cleanse participants can also drink in the support of a certified health coach/cleanse expert.
