Family patriarch Nordy Rockler opened the doors of his first store in 1954 to supply his fellow craftsmen with knowledge, friendly advice, and a large selection of tools for at-home woodworking projects. Now, the chain of retail outlets brims with more than 20,000 tools and specialized woodworking equipment. Next to a steely rainbow of hinges, casters, and screws, a supply of lumber and exotic hardwoods provides planks for building tree houses or just leaving around as a warning to uncooperative trees. The tenor buzz of power tools operated by newly knowledgeable guests drifts from educational sessions on operating equipment and woodworking.

At Brown Chiropractic, Dr. Rebecca Brown and her team relieve spinal and nervous-system stress and empower patients to maintain good relationships with their backbones. After collecting new patient forms, a chiropractor begins the exam by gently palpating the spine to check for curvatures, any spastic muscles that are chaffing nearby nerves, and vertebral disks that may be considering a move to a stress-free career in the shin. A computer then analyzes circulation problems and motor nerve impairment, and controlled movement of achy joints screens for damaged tissue. Depending on information gathered during the exam and subsequent interviews of your childhood PE teachers, the doctor may administer x-rays to further scrutinize alignment and bone growth history before deciding on a proper course of treatment.
Bettina Blanchard makes use of her master's degree in organization and management and 10 years of experience to help others to develop organizational and time-management systems they can rely on every single day and every double day. Her classes and public-speaking engagements, such as Clutter Control 101 and Speed Cleaning, instill the methods of those systems—systems Bettina believes are integral to reducing stress in daily life. Once her clients can enact organizational skills themselves and get their environment in order via filing and storing, Bettina's cleaning services show them how to keep it clean. She can also execute regular housecleanings on a scheduled basis. With package plans, she helps clients to start projects such as de-cluttering the home while cultivating methods to keep spaces from cluttering up again. As a finishing touch to a put-together space, Bettina brings in a painter, Donna George, to put a fresh coat of paint on walls and cover up imperfections such as ceiling stains and old yearbook pictures glued to the wall on a dare.
As detailed in the Portland Press Herald, Arcana Acupuncture, a holistic healing center and boutique, soothes the soul with something as complex as alternative medicine and spiritual workshops or as simple as sparkly original jewelry. The spacious lobby's green accent wall, exposed brick, and babbling fountain establish a bohemian yet modern atmosphere that continues beyond the gold curtains to private, soundproof treatment rooms that allow guests to retreat from the everyday with acupuncture, massages, and life-coaching sessions. After a workshop in aura hygiene and a tarot-card reading that reveals an impending decrease in fortune, guests peruse the boutique. Owner Kate Hebold handpicks its items, which include zodiac pocket watches, light-up steampunk cog rings, local crafts, and books.
