FastFrame’s skilled framers customize borders for an array of wall-worthy pieces. Selecting from an extensive inventory of materials, they craft frames to showcase original artwork or to endow special photographs with a dignified display. Their carefully curated conservation materials prevent works of art from fading and prevent their subjects from sprouting a 5 o’clock shadow. But the framesmiths don't limit themselves to two dimensions—sports memorabilia, kids’ artwork, and other three-dimensional objects find artistic preservation within shadowboxes. They even transform flat-screen TVs into customized, framed works of art by installing a VisionArt feature, which transmits the still image of a painting, family portrait, or favorite infomercial onto idle screens.
During Couples Massage Class sessions, one instructor coaches five misty-eyed duos as they deliver easily mastered, Swedish-inspired strokes to their paramours. Teachers demonstrate beginner massage sequences from neck to toe before two-hour classes commence in a room ringed with mirrors, flickering candlelight, and soothing Norah Jones vocals. Clad in comfy, loose-fitting clothing, pupils de-stress while their fingers glide with provided oils and creams in an effort to fully soothe. Couples gain insight usually reserved for massage therapists and competitive jugglers, including how to keep hands moving without suffering from fatigue. Enlightened students leave with a handout that sums up all of the massage techniques necessary to easily reenact relaxation sessions at home.
