When John Richardson was teaching 4-year-olds how to kick a soccer ball during a preschool class, it may not have been immediately obvious that this was a career opportunity.

Today, Revolutionary Sports has grown into a team of 50 coaches who lead classes and camps for an array of ages and ability levels. Among its many duties, the staff teaches youngsters how to shoot a basketball, hit a baseball, spike a volleyball, and weave football flags into umbrellas.
Armed with certifications in Asian bodywork, Sally Schroeder treats men, women, and children with holistic treatments based on Eastern philosophies. Unlike Western-style massages—which focus on the body's muscles, connective tissue, and intricate pulleys—Asian bodywork hones in on meridians, the inner channels through which the body's energy, or qi, flows. During shiatsu and acupressure treatments, Sally applies gentle pressure to specific points using her fingers, elbows, or knees. Tui-na session employ a more flowing technique of kneading and stretching to restore energy flow, and fire cupping uses suction to promote circulation and healing.
