A woman enters a chiropractic clinic, but she's not there to talk about a stiff back, a knot in her neck, or even sinus pressure. Just a short time before, the woman underwent a surgery that resulted in a clipped nerve, adversely affecting both her uterus and bladder. Recognizing that an adjustment would offer little relief, Dr. William Buhrman Jr. instead applies Avicenna laser therapy to encourage tissue regeneration. He soon receives a call from his patient, during which the woman tells him she's regained use of her bladder. A second-generation chiropractor, Dr. Buhrman takes an integrative approach to structural care and rehabilitation, beginning with orthopedic and neurological evaluations to identify what treatment methods will most positively impact each patient's whole-body health. Dr. Buhrman then designs a care regimen, which may combine therapies such as massage, custom nutrition based on a gene SNP DNA screening analysis, and jetpacks that reduce the impact of walking.
Since the Maganias family opened the first Astro Skate Family Fun Center in Tarpon Springs more than 32 years ago, customers have flocked to the skate rinks for birthday parties, summer camps, and family-friendly fun. At each location, a live DJ cranks out danceable tunes as skaters wheel and glide across a huge lacquered wood floor. Off-rink, kids compete for redemption prizes at a host of arcade games, or take flight in the safe confines of a cushy inflatable bounce house. Astro Skate Family Fun Center keeps things fresh with a schedule of special events, including jump-rope contests, foam parties, and roller-derby matches.
Bright colors and self-defense precepts rarely go together, but there’s purpose behind such a coupling in Elite Tactical Training’s paintball sessions.

The educational paintball battles complement the company’s other offerings, such as marksmanship lessons and concealed carry courses.
The racks and shelves at Doodlebugs Kids Consignment rarely look the same from visit to visit. The inventory of consignment clothing, toys, and furniture for children changes frequently, according to the new or gently used items the staff receives each day. A colorful set of pint-size chairs and table; strollers decorated with cartoon characters; outdoor play sets with swings and slides—these are some of the items that might await parents within Doodlebugs' walls.
Bill Jackson's Shop for Adventure is a full-service outfitter providing adventure apparel and instruction to outdoor enthusiasts.
