SVS Vision Center?s founders opened their first shop in Sterling Heights, Michigan, in 1974 to help the community clear up its vision. But even these optical gurus never foresaw their humble business expanding to more than 60 locations sprawled across 8 states. Today, each shop continues the tradition of ensuring ocular health and crystalline sight, beginning with exams from seasoned optometrists. Afterward, patients head to the optical dispensary, where they try on frames by Coach, Tiffany, Nike, Versace, or Ray-Ban. The staff then fits the stylish selection with polarized and scratch-protected prescription lenses to help guests read books clearly or see a charging moose from a distance. Most of SVS Vision Center?s frames can also hold sunglass lenses as well, eliminating squinting during summer months and tropical vacations.

Nestled in Yorktown Center, floor-to-ceiling windows shed sunlight across the tan leather seating and rustic Italian décor of Healthy Family Physicians' lobby.

Patricia Kooy?a licensed massage therapist and board-certified HPT and CMMT?has learned a great deal about the body?s inner workings during her 10 years of practice, much of which adds up to a single guiding principle: ?Healing is a process, not an event.? Patricia begins this process with her advanced repertoire of bodywork techniques, which includes targeted manual therapies as well as holistic energy treatments. She understands that each healing journey requires its own combination of methods, so she tailors her techniques to each individual, treating specific ailments such as arthritis and fibromyalgia with medical deep-tissue techniques or connecting chakras with healing-touch therapy. Depending on the technique and her client?s level of tension, Patricia may incorporate essential oils, hot stones, an infrared-heat lamp, or molten lava to help her melt away stresses.
