At Malki Dental, Dr. Stephen J. Malki straightens teeth with the advanced metal-free technology of Invisalign. The Invisalign process eschews cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. An initial 30-minute exam, including x-rays, photos, and impressions of your mouth terrain, paves the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift walnut crackers without brackets, bands, or a scared straight dentist visit. Depending on the client’s teeth, as few as 12 or as many as 48 separate aligners will need to be worn during a period of 12–18 months before the straightening effect finally self-actuates in a sudden burst of pink smoke and slobber. Aligners need only be removed when eating, brushing, flossing, or chewing on rocks. For more information, check out the Invisalign FAQs here.

Catherine Bello finds the solution to stress where others rarely think to look: the bottoms of their feet. She and her team of certified reflexologists manipulate pressure points on the feet that correspond with specific glands, organs, and other body parts in order to promote holistic wellness in their clients. These treatments can address specific ailments from headaches and sinusitis to digestive problems.

Reflexology sessions aren't strictly medical, though. Instead, Sole Revival Reflexology aims to provide a spa experience for clients, offering soothing foot soaks and leg massages as well as a variety of add-on services such as paraffin-wax treatments. Foot treatments also incorporate a skincare mask in a variety of scents, including one that will make your soles smell like champagne even if you weren't recently kickboxing at a New Year's Eve party.

Many of the staff members are also nail technicians and provide pedicures with chemical-free polish to complement their reflexology sessions. Others perform the balancing art of reiki, which involves laying on hands to regulate the body's flow of energy. During all treatments, a spa-like environment aims to enhance their calming work as guests relax surrounded by decorative plants and the sound of quiet, relaxing music.

Every day at Action Film Academy, students get in all-out brawls filled with headbutts, roundhouse punches, and sometimes bodies tossed through plate-glass windows. Don't worry, though. They don't get injured, and they're not even mad at each other. They're just doing classwork designed to prepare students for roles in action movies as fighters and stunt doubles.

The preparation process is rigorous and thorough. The academy's instructors, headed by veteran martial artist and stunt coordinator Michael DePasquale Jr., cover a wide swathe of topics to ensure their students stay safe and convincing in the midst of a movie melee. Their courses cover fight choreography, body reactions, and lessons on head snaps, which help make a phantom punch to the face or a mean-spirited insult land with real impact.

Aikido is the "loving protection of all beings," in the words of Morihei Ueshiba, who created the martial-arts style. Although it sometimes incorporates wooden weapons, at its heart, aikido seeks to act as a replacement for violence. Greg O'Connor, founder and chief instructor at Aikido Centers of New Jersey, brings Ueshiba's tenets to his students, who have included children and seniors, as well as members of the New Jersey State Police, the Department of Homeland Security, and the US Secret Service. O'Connor and more than 40 other instructors teach students self-defense tactics that redirect attacks, as well as more advanced methods that include wooden sword and staff training and aikido's dramatic falls and rolls.

Baby's Premiere 3D/4D Ultrasound Studio gives families and parents-to-be a live look-in at these mini milestone moments, all without installing a window on the mother's belly. A certified sonographer with 15 years of experience built Baby's Premiere to be a place for bonding. Relatives do just that by watching their newest addition to the family on a 46-inch flat-screen TV, and reliving the experience time and again with videos, photos, and other keepsakes.
