Q&A with Syl, Owner, Licensed Massage Therapist

Sometimes the little things make all the difference. Do you bake any supplementary services into your main services?
Before your massage, the therapist will place a hot towel on your back. You may listen to your choice of music while you lie on the heated table. Afterward, a mirror makes it easy to check your makeup and hair.

What are some of your most popular services? What do you think clients love them so much?
Swedish massage provides a welcome release from the stresses of a busy life. Prenatal massage allows the mother-to-be to relax and eases the discomforts of a changing body. Trigger point (a form of deep-tissue massage) relieves the taut, shortened muscles challenged by overwork or trauma. Clients love receiving massages because they realize that if they are going to give their best care to others, they need to take care of themselves also.

The course at High Lands Golf Club challenges visitors with 6,599 yards of tight lies, concealed obstacles, and fairway trees extending their unlucky limbs into players’ sightlines. Tree-lined fairways and immaculate greens yield some scenic vistas for players bashing orbs along the course’s serpentine length. The signature third hole starts players off from an elevated tee shot that must stay out of the out-of-bounds area on the left, but not drift too far right, where clearing the wooded ravine on the second shot would become impossible. The next shot onto the elevated green is made difficult by the black walnut tree guarding the green, making for an altogether difficult run at par. Toward the end of the round, players must face a gauntlet of obstacles on holes 16, 17, and 18 before heading in for the day. Named the “Bermuda Triangle” for the architect’s tendency to incorporate treacherous waterways and affinity for Bermuda shorts, hole 16 challenges golfers with difficult lies, slippery putts, and water hazards that loom large.

  • 18-hole, par 72 course
  • Four sets of tees per hole
  • Total length of 6,599 yards from the back tees

The individual attention of personal training and the camaraderie of team workouts converge at The Edge, a 3,000-square-foot kettlebell gym inside Personally Fit’s workout studio. Here, certified personal trainers lead three types of functional fitness classes that use tools such as weighted sleds and suspension-training harnesses to increase strength, burn calories, and gear up for Santa’s annual reindeer tryouts. During the studio’s signature kettlebell classes, students sculpt limbs and cores using cast-iron weights shaped like small cannonballs. To help to prevent injuries and reap each motion’s benefits, a Russian Kettlebell–certified instructor stresses proper form throughout the workout. The earth’s gravitational pull powers TRX classes, which help up to 10 students to master body-weight exercises using suspension-training straps. Since each movement can be tailored to a variety of skill sets, these workouts suit the needs of new exercisers and seasoned athletes alike. Built around a circuit of cardio and strength stations, boot camps boost fitness levels with sandbags and battling ropes, not piggyback rides from Richard Simmons.
