Grand Ledge Acupuncture’s licensed chi-finagler, Barbara Brouwer, wields extensive training in Oriental medicine and a set of thin, sterile needles to treat patients for a slew of maladies, including stress, joint stiffness, and chronic pain. In an initial consultation, she asks clients questions about their health history to suss out the root cause of their complaint, whether it be blocked energy pathways or a charley horse taking out timeshares in their left bicep. After constructing a personalized course of action, the experienced needle negotiator pricks extremely thin needles just under the client’s skin at predetermined points in an attempt to stimulate energy flow and unearth repressed memories of their past lives as porcupines. As spiny patients relax and recline, Brouwer targets a needle-free trouble area for a 15-minute massage that complements the effects of the acupuncture treatment.

Even as a young child, Theresa had a penchant for seeking out animals in need. Her parents and relatives can endlessly recount stories of her rescue attempts, which continued until her husband, Earl, emphatically insisted that three dogs were enough in the family. Earl had not seen the last of Theresa’s passion, however; she eventually left her career in the computer industry, and the two teamed up to open The Animal Lodge. Though it proved to be hard work, Theresa convincingly describes the benefits of her new profession: "We come to work in the morning and instead of seeing a bunch of grumpy people who have not had their coffee yet, we see wagging tails, licking tongues, and happy dances in everyone we meet."

Today, the duo works together to keep pets in comfort with daycare and overnight boarding facilities complete with heated floors during the winter, air conditioning during the summer, and a fenced-in yard for outdoor playtime. In addition to the regular bunks, the deluxe wilderness lodge—furnished with a bed, a chair, a television set, and mounted antlers rife with chew marks—recreates the comfortable atmosphere of home for nervous pooches. Groomer Nancy Oberg draws on her canine cosmetology training to round out the lodge’s services with baths, trims, and deep-tissue belly rubs.

Nana-N-Paws' team keeps a round-the-clock watch over owners' beloved dogs, whether they're romping in the 7,000-square-foot indoor play area, dashing along the fence of the 11,000-square-foot outdoor playground, or snoozing in the cage-free overnight center. Private suites are also available for dogs to wind down. The staff splits canines into dedicated age- and size-appropriate areas, such as Loveable Lapdogs for visitors under 25 pounds, and the Senior Center for older dogs. The facility also houses a full-service grooming shop and team of experienced obedience trainers.

Canfield Jenkins' experienced photographers, Andrew Jenkins and Jackie Palmer, set subjects at ease and capture stills of children, families, and high-school seniors on film in a custom-designed studio. During approximately 30-minute mini sessions, gussied-up children aged from 6 months–16 years don one outfit to romp through a century-old Victorian home and its lush grounds. The photographer's lens winks to take picturesque snapshots in which photographees embody preset themes or characters such as little sweetheart, rockstar, little ballerina, chalk artist, and black and white models. After the shoot, clients will choose three of their favorite images from a collection of 10 to frame within a mini desk display that parents or guardians can proudly show off at work.

Armed with an army of innovative and certified shutterbugs, Olan Mills Portrait Studio provides families with high-quality portraits, continuing a mission that was established more than 75 years ago by founder Olan Mills Sr. Skilled in the art of capturing infants, children, families, and bunny-ears-giving ghost orbs on film, Olan Mills’s experienced smile snappers will take a series of poses amid a variety of backgrounds and lighting options. The studio is equipped with a selection of props—including numbers for birthdays, toys, and boxes—and patrons may bring their own photo-enlivening items from home. The resulting photos find their way to prints in natural color, black and white, or sepia tones; they can also be immortalized in the studio's signature Old Masters style, a canvas brushed with highlights to recreate look of an oil painting. Like the gentlemanly mariners of ages past with their full schedule of sea-battles, the photographers welcome appointments, but do not require them.
