After becoming a licensed massage therapist and certified manual lymph-drainage therapist, Kelly Jo Dorn spent two years massaging patients at a nonprofit cancer center. She then used her experience and two levels of reiki training to open Healing Hands Massage Studio & Gifts in 2010. Since the studio's inception, she's enlisted the help of licensed massage therapist Anna Kimpel, who specializes in deep-tissue and hot-stone modalities. Clients enjoy all the relaxing services—ranging from oncology massage to reiki sessions—inside a warm treatment room that can be left silent or enhanced with the soothing sounds of a velvet saxophone.
Since 1865, mariners have dined, relaxed, and mingled in the elegant confines of Toledo Yacht Club. Trophy cases and nautical memorabilia fill the current masonry clubhouse––built in 1908––where chefs treat members and guests to upscale feasts in a formal dining room and casual meals beside the Den Bar’s fireplace and large-screen television. Upstairs, guests dance across a third-floor ballroom during the Commodore’s Ball, one of the club’s many annual events, which also include the prestigious New Year's Eve Champagne Celebration and a family-friendly brunch with Santa.
Outside, tennis, basketball, and shuffleboard courts share space on a massive lawn where tetherballs whip around tall poles and children climb over playground equipment. Members share meals at a sheltered, secluded picnic area, take a dip in the swimming pool, or cast off on a journey down the Maumee River. For longer jaunts, members can contact one of Toledo Yacht Club’s affiliations, which grant access to numerous clubs throughout the U.S. and Canada.

Formula Drivetech fulfills childhood dreams of being a bona fide racecar driver by buckling grown-up gearheads into a variety of acceleratory vehicles for blistering journeys around the track. The Intro to Road Racing experience caters to those yearning for an asphalt-treading solo excursion, commencing with a firesuit and helmet fitting before ejecting revved up novices into the vehicular classroom for a 45-minute orientation. From there, lead-footed speedsters accompany their zen-like instructor on an SUV odyssey around the racetrack in order to experience the straightaways, bends, and metaphorical road forks firsthand before driving. Like the end of every teen movie, the grand finale grants each motorized student keys to the car kingdom, propelling them on a 15-minute, scorching orbit around the course in a Formula Ford with no one else in the vehicle except their grandmother's voice urging them to go faster.
2013 NASCAR Hall of Fame inductee Rusty Wallace allows amateurs to feel first-hand how an open-wheeled race car rumbles as its tires scorch a professional speedway.

For more of the genuine experience, drivers don the full array of safety gear before climbing or vaulting through the window, including a sleek racing suit, helmet, and HANS neck-protection device.
