Great Harvest Bread Company’s bakers craft a heart-healthy assortment of whole-grain breads and baked goods using freshly ground flour. Each month, a newly designed menu allows the team to employ the season's freshest ingredients and harvest the warmest loaves from bread-bearing trees, including cinnamon-raisin-walnut swirl, white chocolate cranberry swirl, and Mediterranean olive loaves.
Kelly Thompson knows a thing or two about handling stress. For five years she served as a police/fire/911 dispatch operator, an occupation that demanded Kelly keep a calm, relaxed head while she coached people in crisis through harrowing situations with gentle reassurance and ample empathy. Once Kelly had a taste for bringing calm to stressed-out, overtaxed people, she sought a way to apply her talent elsewhere. Kelly shifted her focus to the hands-on massage field, earned her license, and opened up Kneading Massage Today’s relaxing oasis. Her previous experience in throwing people emotional life rafts informs her current practice, as Kelly both receives clients at her spa location and totes her massage chair to offices to ease the collective shoulders of employees and the sore necks of their desktop bobble-heads. As she saturates muscles with Swedish and deep-tissue massages, her clients get a blissful reprieve from muscle tension and mental stress. Treatments include doubly soothing accouterments including hot stones and aromatherapy.

Though Point Maid sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
Jennifer Buergermeister is very flexible. She not only moves from job to job—she's an entrepreneur, independent filmmaker, spiritual healer, and app designer—but also from pose to pose while teaching yoga. She has created two yoga DVDs and has a third coming out in November. She's also the owner of Jennyoga, where she works with a deep bench of fellow yoga teachers, offering a variety of classes for all levels. These include Sunrise and Awakening, Hatha Flow, and Deep Relaxation and Restorative yoga classes.
The team at Jennyoga strives to make coming to the studio easy. They built a Jennyoga app for mobile devices that allows students to schedule classes on the fly. And they run an in-house store, where visitors can pick up any yoga gear they might need before heading into one of the studios. They even made a short film to inspire attendance, a sort of narrative commercial about the beneficial effects of yoga in our noisy, modern world where neighbors rev motorcycle engines and fire alarms scream in delight whenever you get home.
