Chiropractors at Specific Chiropractic Centers coast to coast get their clients walking tall with advanced spine-straightening technology. They pinpoint spinal abnormalities with an advanced thermographic scan that sends heat cascading through problem areas, allowing the professionals to make an informed diagnosis. From there, they deploy their chiropractic method to fix upper-cervical kinks and restore neural functionality. The goal is to perform as few adjustments as possible both to respect clients' schedules and to carve out more time for practitioners to work on their puppeteer careers.

Out in the park, its not uncommon to see dozens of people swinging their hips, hooping and laughing. They're not going for a Guinness Book record or even competing: they're burning calories in a fun way. It's what Hardcore Hooping is all about—getting people together for energetic, healthy activities that shed pounds. The hooping experts design their multi-colored hoops specifically for the task, weighting them perfectly with water. That water swooshes around while hooping, creating a rhythmic sound that fosters a trance-like focus. Besides burning calories, hoop exercises build core strength and improve balance and flexibility. Hardcore Hooping also offers rental packages for events and leads high-energy fitness classes.

Jayleen Hayden has always had deep connections with the people she meets. From a young age, she noticed that she was especially adept at reading and even feeling others' emotions, a skill that she attributes to her sensitivity to personal energies. This innate ability aids her during the reiki sessions she performs, which treat the energetic blockages traditional medicine doesn't address. By using her energy to shift and balance her client's energy, Jayleen's hands-on therapy can help relieve the symptoms of stress, anxiety, or chronic pain while also healing the underlying energetic causes of these conditions. Customers can call on Jayleen for in-person reiki sessions and animal reiki for stressed or anxious pets.

Maine Optometry’s skilled optometrists determine prescriptions for contacts, such as Acuvue Oasys, and glasses, such as the eye boutique's more than 750 frames including brands such as Oakley, Kate Spade, and Banana Republic. These frames encircle everything from simple single-vision lenses to specialty lenses that cater to athletes or clients who stare at a computer monitor all day waiting for it to blink. Clients interested in throwing off the yoke of eyewear entirely can discuss refractive surgery with the doctors.

Maine Optometry also outfits clients in designer sunglasses and concerns itself with the environment, working with an e-prescribing system that eliminates paperwork, which trees hate to fill out.
