Liz and Phil Kramer work together to rejuvenate the whole being within a treatment room styled to mimic a comfortable living room with a gas fireplace and plush beds. Liz trained as a holistic counselor, and Phil draws upon certification as a massage therapist to help relax patrons after they chaperone Humpty Dumpty’s gymnastics class. Scents from complimentary aromatherapy unfurl through the air, stirred only by deep exhalations during customized deep-tissue massages. The shelves brim with Yonka products and Firmi sea mud, and the holistic healers also use Soul Synergy's personal cream products and hot towels saturated in aromatic Phyto Bain with every treatment.:m]]
Raya's serves a mélange of comfort foods, with an emphasis on Greek and Italian favorites, in a family-friendly atmosphere. Their menu is a mishmash of mouth treats, featuring everything from pizza (all under $15) to chicken wings, which come in 11 flavors, including Hawaiian, teriyaki, and "awesome," a wing that will give your taste buds a foot massage with one hand while juggling with the other. Burgers, paninis, gyros, and subs (each under $9) all fight it out for sandwich domination, while seafood and pasta lurk in the corner, waiting to jump the winner. The Cajun-flavored Mardi Gras chicken ($12.95) and the Surf-n-Turf topped with shrimp ($14.95) are just a couple of the menu items that Raya's recommends as house specialties. The dining room is warm and inviting, with wood paneling, white table cloths, and comfortable red vinyl booths waiting to prop up hungry diners as they pore over Raya's sizeable bill of fare.

Jim Scoggins first felt the rocking of a ship's deck in the 1950s on the rolling waters of Lake Champlain. Though he traveled south and found himself in healthcare administration for the next few decades, he never lost the passion for sailing—and eventually returned to New England to conquer more waves in the 1980s. With Sail the Sounds LLC established at three local ports, Captain Jim now uses his original sailing craft, an O'Day 39, as part of his training and charter fleet. He and his wife, Teresa, helm an ASA-certified training center, charter service, and cruising club to set guests out on the sparkling waters of Mystic River and Mystic Harbor. Captains pilot three Hunter yachts for chartered trips, as well as six Hunter 240 sailboats for captain rentals, sailing-club events, and classes teaching technique for keelboats, coastal navigation, and safely chartering parties of water-fearing cats.
