Magic Escape Spa’s massage-therapy team ushers clients into blissful states of relaxation using classic Swedish and deep-tissue kneading techniques. The Swedish massage treats the entire body to a one-hour respite filled with more gliding strokes and rhythmic taps than a ski trip with Fred Astaire. Tailored to the client’s pressure preferences, the service dissolves knots in the top layer of muscle tissue while also promoting circulation to expel toxins and speed the healing of injuries. During custom deep-tissue massages, targeted strokes tunnel deep into the innermost layers of sinew to combat sources of chronic pain and stiffness. Like the Swedish massage, this kneading style is an ideal way to melt stress and can even help smooth over common muscle problems, such as back sprain or restless trapezius syndrome.

Olan Mills Inc. provides families with high-quality portraits, continuing a mission that was established more than 75 years ago by founder Olan Mills Sr. Skilled in the art of capturing infants, children, families, and bunny-ears-giving ghost orbs on film, Olan Mills’s experienced smile snappers will take a series of poses amid a variety of backgrounds and lighting options. The studio is equipped with a selection of props—including numbers for birthdays, toys, and boxes—and patrons may bring their own photo-enlivening items from home. The resulting photos find their way to prints in natural color, black and white, or sepia tones; they can also be immortalized in the studio's signature Old Masters style, a canvas brushed with highlights to re-create the look of an oil painting. Like the gentlemanly mariners of ages past with their full schedule of sea battles, the photographers welcome appointments, but do not require them.
