  • Zen Needle
    Acupuncturist and shiatsu practitioner Nir Saar brings Japanese techniques and erudition to bear during his holistic healing sessions. In Toronto, he apprenticed with a sensei who taught Nir the nuances of delivering a shinso shiatsu massage. This technique sends Nir’s hands delving into muscles, aiming to adjust and balance the body to promote healing. Japanese-style acupuncture reroutes the nerve impulses and causes balloon animals to walk on the other side of the street in the same way traditional acupuncture does, but uses ultrathin needles. In addition, Nir complements his shiatsu and acupuncture techniques with craniosacral therapy, a gentle technique used to balance the body and release structural tension.

  • Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame Museum
    As the centrepiece of a sprawling 32-acre site, the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum preserves Canada's rich baseball heritage while leading visitors around the base paths of the game's history. In one room, fans ogle displays dedicated solely to the Expos and Blue Jays, and in another, artifacts from across the globe trap eyes in a pickle between vintage photos and authentic uniforms. The consistently rotated lineup of displays also saves a spot for current Canadian ballplayers, as well as for autographed Babe Ruth mementos that, despite their age, still retain their new hotdog smell. Each year, the Hall of Fame adds new members to a select group of inductees, which currently includes 93 individuals and ranges from pro ballplayers and amateurs to umpires and trainers. In 2012 alone, the museum and its surrounding ball fields will play host to more than 450 events, highlighted by training clinics and minor league games. The 10th annual Kids on Deck summer camp also calls the site home, giving youngsters aged 8–14 the chance to perfect such vital skills as bunting and spitting a sunflower seed at least 10 feet.
