The licensed and insured professionals at Specialty Air Ducts aren't doctors, but they do help their clients feel better. That's because by ensuring home air vents are free of dirt, mold, and bacteria, they can actually bring relief to those suffering from allergies, asthma, headaches, and even sinus problems. Using EPA-approved cleaning solutions, they'll safely and effectively remove buildup from ducts, improving indoor air quality and ensuring home heating and cooling systems work as efficiently as possible.
Over the course of its 22-year existence, Ocean Experience Surf School has helped somewhere in the neighborhood of over 15,000 students to safely discover and refine their passion for watersports. Students 6 or older hop atop surfboards, paddleboards, and kayaks for on-the-water practice under the care of experienced instructors during private lessons and group classes.
The local press and community showers the school's companion retail outlet with praise, which won both the Best Surf Shop and Best Skate Shop in CityBeat's 2010 Readers' Poll. In an effort to give back to the community, the organization runs an afterschool sports program offering surfing and skateboarding lessons to kids up to 18 years old and adults with a note from a certified kindergarten teacher.

Ryback Landscaping finds barren yards that are marred by dying grass and scraggly bushes, and transforms them into works of living art. Its team can install custom water features, build fences, and aerate lawns, whatever it takes to make yards look beautiful. For more routine needs, staff members can also come to homes to trim shrubs, weed lawns, and give garden gnomes a talking to.
Hands On Therapeutic Massage is passionate about helping clients relax and heal. Nationally certified in therapeutic massage and bodywork, Nancy Nicholson, LMT, and her team do so through Swedish massage and deep-tissue massage modalities, as well as through customizable 30-minute therapeutic sessions. In addition to in-office services, therapists also transport a massage chair to different locations for on-site sessions, such as homes or offices.
Human performers can take advantage of the center's indoor track, three pools, an array of exercise equipment, and a full schedule of fitness classes. Rows of Life Fitness machines magnify gravity's weighty influence over the entire pyramid of muscle groups, and more than 80 pieces of cardio equipment remind members that hearts are muscles, too. Lonely lifters can convene in a calendar of collectively powered classes, including yoga, aerobics, cycling, and mat Pilates. The aerobic Sweat! class tones the whole body with a combination of bosu, step, and weights, and Vinyasa yoga bends bodies from rigid breadsticks into limber pretzels. Heat-seeking muscles land their sights on the club's sauna, jacuzzi, or 90-degree therapy pool. Tai Chi and Reformer Pilates classes are not included.
