Angel Tips has clearly built a fan base since opening its first location in 1996—the business has expanded to more than 60 locations in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut. Perhaps it's because each licensed staff member formally trains at the Angel Tips training center in Stamford, Connecticut, ensuring that each location employs skilled nailcare and waxing technicians. Their services include pedicures infused with fresh lemon, manicures with hand and shoulder massages, and upgraded manicures with durable, chip-resistant gel polish. They also perform facials and body treatments, such as a signature body scrub, which begins with a sauna session, continues with a dip in a jacuzzi, and finishes with an essential-oil massage.
Executive Park Physical Therapy buzzes with movement as patients bounce on trampolines, jog on treadmills, and pedal recumbent bikes. Designed by a staff of four licensed physical therapists, these therapeutic routines help patients to heal from injuries and relieve the pain of chronic conditions. Massage therapists decompress spinal disks and wrap limbs in kinesio tape to retrain the neuromuscular system following sprains and strains from playing Red Rover with the Rockettes. A colorful assortment of free weights helps patients to strengthen weak muscles, and high-tech tools such as cold lasers and thermal ultrasound machines spirit away pain and inflammation. To open the lines of communication, multilingual staffers assist patients in English or Spanish, unlike some specialty physical-therapy offices that communicate strictly in haikus written in Klingon.

Before patrons come by to claim their frosted dozen, the pastries take up temporary residence in the 1950s-themed shop, basking in the glory of an artificial-additive-free existence.
