Founded in 1970 by Tom Cade, a former professor of Ornithology at Cornell University, The Peregrine Fund's World Center for Birds of Prey is a non-profit that strives to save birds of prey from extinction. Their efforts began nearly 40 years ago, when trying to save the Peregrine Falcon, which was eventually removed from the Endangered Species list in 1999. Today, at their 580-acre headquarter campus in Boise, Idaho, they focus on captive breeding of California Condors and Aplomado Falcons for the purposes of preservation.
Jennifer Parker knows what it’s like to suffer through chronic pain. When she found relief through massage therapy, she felt inspired to study at the Apollo College massage-therapy program. There, she honed the skills that she practices while presiding at Body Harmony Massage. As a clinic rather than a spa, Body Harmony Massage focuses on massage as a path to health less tedious than eating an apple a day. Despite being a clinic, they still offer pampering services in a soothing and comforting environment. Its licensed practitioners treat a wide array of conditions, such as headaches, sciatica, and back pain. They tackle these complaints with massage modalities including the gliding effleurage of Swedish kneading and the resistive stretching of PNF—proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation—which can rehabilitate weakened muscles.
