At American Barbershop, stylists work to resurrect the corner barbershops of yore, when striped poles spun out front and everybody knew each other's name. They're off to a good start?their red, white, and blue barber's pole twirls in front of the shop, and the vintage feeling continues inside, with red leather barber's chairs sidled up to antique wooden workstations stained dark with pale trim. They even have a rocking-horse haircut chair for kids or the tiny cowboys who mosey on in for a beard trim. The barbers offer hair services for men, women, and children, and keep their menu simple and no-fuss: haircuts and shampoos, along with beard trims for men and blow-dry styles for women.
As a child, Joseph Downer’s study of isshinryu karate led him to a deeper knowledge of acupuncture points, meridians, and traditional Chinese medicine. At Stratford Acupuncture & Wellness Center, Joe forgoes his martial-arts moves for the slender, precise needles of acupuncture and supplements sessions with Chinese medical massage, raindrop essential-oil techniques, and qi-gong therapy. Practitioners use tenets of Chinese medicine to diagnose and root out imbalances and can also supplement acupuncture therapy with dietary recommendations and herbal supplements.
Doctor of Chiropractic Jennifer Lynne and her staff help clients to achieve wellness by using alternative methods to reduce the risk of pain and illness.

In private treatment rooms, the staff also soothes muscles with massage therapy, brings bodies into balance with acupuncture, and helps to restore patients' movement with physical therapy.
The clinic is nestled up against a charming gift boutique. Once visitors finish their appointments with Dr. Lynne or a therapist, they can browse through the boutique's selection of quirky decorations, handbags, scented candles, and motivational plaques written by happy backs.
