Jamie Szybala followed in her family’s footsteps when she became a second-generation healer and practitioner of Traditional Chinese Medicine. She treats allergies and chronic pain with hair-thin acupuncture needles or cupping treatments, which entail suctioning cups onto the skin to move areas of stagnant blood. She also helps her clients improve their wellness with a custom blend of herbs in granular form, as a pill, or disguised as a Twinkie.
Each of the 18 fairways at Haven Golf Course presents golfers with a lush Bermuda-grass oasis in which to craft artful divots as they traverse the par-72 track. The Arthur Jack Snyder, ASGCA design leads playing groups along 6,905 yards of the Green Valley, clustering around a large elongated lake on one side and wrapping around several residential blocks on the other. Prior to embarking on their expedition, groups can warm up at the practice facility, complete with grass tees that mimic on-course lies.
Adjacent to the main championship course lies Haven's Tortuga Golf Course, a short par-3 course with holes that measure between 50 and 90 yards. This shrunken jaunt presents beginning golfers with an easy place to take up the game and more experienced golfers a place to practice air strumming their putter.
Course at a Glance:
Founded by Dr. Daniel Bluth more than two decades ago, Wisdom Teeth Only comprises a network of oral surgeons and dentists who are highly trained in caring for wisdom teeth. Their care often includes extracting these troublesome molars from the mouth because of their tendency to push on their neighbors like rude commuters on the subway. Wisdom teeth also tend to get trapped below the gums and cause infection. Extraction is a simple surgery that can be performed under local anesthesia or with the help of an anesthesiologist.
Owners Tom and Dawn Wilson hope that members of Zona Fitness can move as casually and comfortably to the gym's free-weight rack as they do to their own front door. In an effort to combat the overwhelming crowds and uncomfortable scrutiny of "box" gyms, they created a smaller, more welcoming workout space, equipped with an aerobics studio and modern exercise machinery. Here, they view intimidation as the enemy and customization as the ideal.
Their personal-training programs build routines for clients of all skill levels and aspirations. In addition to adult appointments, the nationally certified trainers host sessions for children and teens that accommodate growing bodies, instead of simply telling them "you'll lift more when you're older." Instructors also demonstrate barbell lifts, martial arts strikes, and cardio dance moves during Les Mills group classes, which share the schedule with yoga and boot-camp lessons. The staff even caters to family members at each end of the age spectrum: childcare services supervise youngsters, and Silver Sneakers courses showcase senior-friendly maneuvers.
