Tori Cipra-Willmon seldom gives the same massage twice. That's because she tailors each treatment to the specific needs of the client, which means bringing relief to a sore back. In addition to doling out deep-tissue and Swedish massages that target both stress and physical pain, she can also tailor treatments to suit expectant mothers or those suffering from fibromyalgia, and can enhance any treatment with add-ons such as aromatherapy and hot stones.

After scouring Manhattan in search of affordable eye care for his six children, Dr. Richard Presley decided to take matters into his own hands. He had already spent years in practice when he founded Success Vision in 1999, and he drew on this experience to pair accurate prescription lenses with stylish frames. Rather than restrict himself to the latest whims of designers, Dr. Presley reduces costs for his customers by offering his own brand of frames. At Success Vision?s speedy on-site laboratory, technicians fit these frames with prescription lenses and x-ray capabilities within an hour.
With more than 386 locations dotting North America, JCPenney Optical's ubiquity is matched only by its extensive selection of contact lenses and designer frames that includes brands such as Armani Exchange, Liz Claiborne, and Nicole Miller. Despite this wide reach, all lenses are cut at the same optical laboratory, ensuring a consistency of quality and a pretty good idea of where to look if your glasses run away from home. Each location has an independent state-licensed doctor of optometry, who can perform vision exams and help clients determine which type of vision correction will work best.
Certified yoga teacher Cat McMahon harnesses her 17 years of yoga experience to lead students of all fitness levels through challenging routines of Iyengar yoga. Various classes tone the muscles and improve the motion range of bending bodies with an emphasis on breathing techniques and dynamic seated and standing postures. Restorative yoga employs a variety of props to help students recover from the stress of busy work schedules and weekend dragon slaying, and slower-paced Yoga for the Young at Heart sessions offer older students a less intensive option for greater comfort. Sessions last roughly 90 minutes and are offered throughout the week. The two-hour private session gifts students one-on-one time with an instructor, or two-on-one time should they decide to bring a friend or mannequin for a joint session.
