Since 2006, licensed massage therapist Jacqui Magaletta has dismissed tension and pain from shoulders and backs with deep-tissue kneads, trigger-point therapy, and other techniques. At My Intuitive Touch Massage, she rounds out the spa experience with pampering details including customized aromatherapy. She also incorporates therapeutic stretching and soothing heat into each massage.
At Dental Bright Advanced Family Dentistry, a team of seven dentists keeps teeth looking and feeling their best with a full spectrum of services, from general dentistry to periodontics to orthodontia. Using digital x-rays and oral sedation, they help dramatically reduce both radiation and anxiety. Their treatment rooms' chair-side flat screens also keep restless uvulas entertained during services. It's important to the dental crew that kids grasp the importance of dental health, so the Dental Bright Kids Club periodically plies tykes with helpful tips along with ice cream, pizza, or sugar-spun dental floss at bowling parties.
The office itself lives up to the practice’s name with sweeping, airy spaces that are tied together with huge windows, curved blue walls, and orange accents. Even the kids' section of the waiting room is chic, with round neon stools and mod murals adding pops of color to the toothbrush-scrubbed interior.
Self Awakening Yoga Studio owner Barbara Sterling describes its mission as guiding students toward a sense of balance that helps them be present in their own lives. Glossy, eco-friendly bamboo floor spans 1,900 square feet of airy studio space, whose white walls are painted with large-scale lotuses and Eastern designs. The studio fosters a community atmosphere with complimentary coffee and tea and by lending books, magazines, DVDs, and CDs to students for use at home.
The studio’s instructors have a variety of reasons for coming to the practice of yoga, whether it was recommended by a doctor after an injury, the solution to physical stress from marathon running or rugby, or the life-changing vocation of a close friend. Consequently, they teach classes and workshops that address a variety of needs through a spectrum of yoga styles, including hot yoga, Vinyasa flow, and Iyengar. Memberships and private lessons are also available to let students adjust the frequency and individual attention of their own curricula.
Since Dr. Stanley Pearle opened the doors to the first Pearle Vision in 1961, the franchise has expanded to more than 800 stores nationwide. In these stores, optometrists assess the ocular health of patients before onsite opticians help them navigate the assortment of frames from brands such as Versace, Ray-Ban, and DKNY. If they're not in the store, clients can utilize the Try-On tool, uploading a photo to see what they or their dog looks like in different types of glasses. Pearle Vision also helps focus the world with contacts from Acuvue and Biofinity.
Since 1965, the family-run Ski Haus has kept customers coming back by adhering to the family motto: “Make sure we keep a fun environment and give everybody a fair deal. They get a ton of stuff for their money and we stay in business for a long time." Patrons can still expect the same low prices and see the same friendly staffers’ faces year after year while shopping for winter gear.
Racks stocked with apparel by brands such as The North Face and Marmot, skis and snowboards by brands such as Atomic and K2, and a team of skilled technicians have earned Ski Haus accolades from Ski magazine, SnowSports Industries America, and New England Winter Sports Representatives, Inc. During tune-ups, technicians polish skis, stone-grind ski edges, apply hot wax, and repair bases damaged by treacherous slopes and sharp snowman noses.
