Names matter to the massage therapists who helm fuse Massage Therapy. They strive to remember each client's name and to infuse their studio's moniker with meaning as well. When naming fuse, they intertwined two relaxing concepts. The first revolves around the word's English definition: to blend together by melting. The second, drawn from its Japanese meaning, adds the idea of sharing one's gifts. The therapists illustrate both definitions during massages tailored to clients' needs and pressure preferences. Stress and tension melt away as they lavish tender sinews with soothing strokes and gentle friction. During hot-stone massages, heated basalt stones help dissolve muscle knots. The studio also offers skin-smoothing services, such as foot refreshers and body scrubs, and four-handed massages performed by two attentive therapists rather than one semidistracted octopus.

Fluent in Spanish, French, and molar, the dentists at the Tooth Zone and Adult Upstate Dental Care nurse discolored teeth back to their white, just-minted condition. The dental whitewashing, which requires just two visits, is powered by the enamel-bolstering Daywhite ACP whitening formula. On the initial visit, a dentist takes first impressions of mouth bones, judging their compatibility as lifelong friends. When patients return for the second round, they'll receive whitening gel, instructions, and an exact mold of their tusks, perfect for slipping into their mouth for some at-home tooth improvement. After up to three weeks of 30-minute, twice-daily sessions, the whitening process is complete and smiles are ready to be proudly showcased.
As soon as you slip into your robe and slippers and hear the calming music at MG's Grand Day Spa, you begin to notice stress and tension melt away. Between soothing spa or salon treatments—perhaps a milk-and-honey hydrotherapy bath or a facial with Pevonia botanical products, caviar extract, or essence of pearl—listen to a trickling fountain as you savor a light lunch on the open garden terrace. Full-body exfoliations with tangerine- or lavender-infused sea salt leave skin smooth and glowing, and a Misty Rain massage beneath the Vichy shower inspires gargled versions of "I Feel Pretty." Afterward, retreat to the relaxation area to reprise the song at the spa's grand piano.
Dr. Gregory Abrams, DMD, and Dr. Ron Cohen, DDS, go to great lengths to help patients maintain their healthy smiles. When not seating implants, filling cavities, or fitting teeth with braces, Dr. Cohen spends his time engaging in hundreds of hours of classes practicing new dentistry innovations. Dr. Abrams journeys from the Friendly Dental offices to underserved areas in a mobile dentistry van, giving patients access to dental care right in their own neighborhoods. Both professionals ensure their patients stay entertained during treatments by seating them in plush chairs, turning on the in-room televisions, and explaining the show’s finer plot points to teeth.
