The 60-minute Royal East West massage uses herbal compresses imported from Thailand to soothe sore muscles, relieve physical tension, and melt stress into a puddle of biodegradable papier-mâché. One of Touch of Asia's licensed, certified therapists will apply the steamy compresses directly to your skin, warming your postureplace while arresting delinquent muscles in rundown parts of town. Stressed backs will swoon in euphoric bliss as knots, spine tangles, and pains melt like Frosted Flakes drowned in milk.

Named one of Parents magazine's Top 10 Birthday Chains in 2010, Color Me Mine's international franchise of DIY ceramics studios cater to an older crowd as well. Hundreds of unadorned ceramic pieces?including vases, flatware, and busts of Elvis?await the attentions of muses of kids and their keepers alike, as do glazes in earthy tones and bright crimsons to frighten bulls away from china cabinets. Guests follow simple step-by-step instructions that leave plenty of room for creative expression. When painters are satisfied with their work, the professional kiln-workers help glaze and fire it for them before customers retrieve the finished piece a few days later.

CraftyStitches Designs first made their mark on the online sewing community with batting made by Virginia vendors and quilted accessories such as jewelry rolls, makeup cases, and iPad sleeves. But since CraftyStitches LLC debuted its other half, CraftyStitches Studio, the 1,500-square-foot crafters' paradise has gained a new following of budding seamstresses. The studio's sewing classes range from quilting and beginner sewing for Girl Scouts to piecing together a little black dress from scratch, rather than piecing one together from scraps of monster truck tires.

The chefs of Cookology parlay the essentials of planning, budgeting, and cooking quick and healthy meals. With new classes added each month, students can pick an evening from the schedule of Quick & Healthy Week Night Meals classes and stroll into the kitchen for a two-hour course that begins with practical tips on how to plan a meal, how to find the best ingredients on a budget, how to bake dessert from scratch, and how to tell a radish from a battery. Chefs then walk students through the cooking of a full menu from scratch, ranging from a braised chicken with caramelized onions and peppers to fresh-spinach-and-arugula salad, with a sweet finale of macerated berries with chocolate crème. During the culinary clinic, technical skills, such as knife-handling, salad-preparation, and oven-braising methods receive due attention, supplying students with the know-how necessary to feed families, impress friends, and avoid guilty looks from the delivery man.
