  • The Love Lab
    The Love Lab founder and renowned massage-industry expert Meagan Holub has helped some pretty discriminating clientele to relax and unwind. From Forbes CEOs and professional athletes to rock stars and royalty, her therapeutic massages have melted away the stress that is inherent in any A lister's life. According to Holub's blog, gift certificates for one of her massages were given away in VIP gift bags at the 2012 MusiCares event honoring Paul McCartney, so they made their way into the hands of celebrity musicians, such as the Foo Fighters, Katy Perry, and Coldplay. But Holub talks massage with as many down-to-earth, everyday people as she does famous folks, thanks to a compassionate streak she's demonstrated since childhood. As a young girl and teenager, she rescued stray animals, volunteered at Easter Seals camp, became a physical-therapy assistant, and served as an aide for a person with paraplegia. Today her passion for helping others translates into The Love Lab's services, including group massage classes and private massage lessons that teach individuals and couples to execute the same techniques so sought after by Hollywood stars. Holub and her team of certified massage therapists also instruct employees at workplace events, where they demonstrate stress-relief techniques, which come in handy the next time the boss requires mandatory overtime to help her solve the Sunday crossword.

  • Science Factory
    Through exhibits that explore everything from astronomy and physics to biology and paleontology, the Science Factory inspires a lifelong love of science in children as well as adults. Above all else, the nonprofit embraces a motto of "please touch," creating safe, engaging opportunities for children to act on their curiosity and gain insight into the principles underlying scientific and technological theories. The Exploration Dome exemplifies the immersive nature of the Museum, surrounding audiences with a full-dome screen that displays digital and live-action films. These educational features can take guests to virtually any location in the world and beyond, including the heart of the Borneo rainforest, the depths of prehistoric oceans, the edge of our galaxy's super-massive black hole, and a universe where popcorn kernels never get stuck in your teeth. Permanent exhibits—including a feature on responsible recycling as well as a terrarium of lizards, frogs, and plants, complete with Renegade, the Museum's resident iguana—explore topics in more depth, complementing both the Exploration Dome’s videos and an ever-changing roster of special attractions.

  • Adventures Unlimited
    At Adventures Unlimited, infants to 12-year-olds develop their love of learning through hands-on exploration in a safe environment, overseen by a team of first-aid- and CPR-certified caretakers. The center combines a park-like outdoor play area, ideal for aspiring tag-players and botanists alike, with an onsite trove of dress-up clothes to aid children as they become pirates or tiara-wearing pirates. Adventures Unlimited also fuels fun with snacks throughout the day, though children are responsible for bringing their own sack lunches. Age-targeted activities abound throughout the year, with story time for infants and toddlers, after-school activities and transportation to local elementary schools for school-age children, and a pre-school for 3- and 4-year-olds with semi-structured art, science, math, and language classes. A registered private kindergarten pampers 5-year-olds with attention before transitioning them seamlessly into local public schools. During the summer months, the center’s camp hinges on weekly themes that can transform participants into chefs or educate them on Oregon’s history of hiding gold in its rivers and children's ears.

  • American Guitar Academy Portland
    Each of the guitar coaches at American Guitar Academy are certified in the school’s signature teaching method. Developed over 25 years, this house-honed instruction technique incorporates scientific research to help fingers learn to shred frets up to eight times faster than alternative methods. During private half-hour lessons, instructors guide budding rock stars aged 4 years and up through the basics of strumming chords and seamlessly stitching together riffs. These comprehensive lessons on classical, electric, or acoustic guitars are offered once a week with a live instructor or online and guarantee that students will be playing their favorite music within six months of training. Students may begin lessons without owning a guitar, but are encouraged to gain access to one quickly for mastering scales and the ability to solo with their teeth.

  • Braingystics Hillsboro
    Brains need workouts, too, according to the founders of Braingystics, a licensed Brainobrain learning center. Here, adults, seniors, and children aged 4–14 hone their abilities to listen, learn, and tackle nearly any problem that comes their way. The center’s whole-brain development program revolves around games, coaching, and brain training that incorporates neuro-feedback, music therapy, and multisensory exercises. As kids hone their math and reading skills, they build confidence, creativity, and a vocabulary as broad and sophisticated as an ocean with a British accent. To help all children achieve their true potential, the center offers learning assessments and therapy for gifted children as well as those with challenges such as dyslexia, ADHD, and autism-spectrum disorders. Seniors can attend classes that use both instructor-based and technologically enhanced exercises to keep mental faculties sharp and improve emotional health. Adults 18 years and older can also benefit from brain training, beginning with an assessment to determine mental fitness and continuing with small-group classes or one-on-one coaching, which can enhance focus, memory, and communication skills, and even help with weight-loss and stress-relief efforts.

  • Power Brain Training Center
    Some people never use their brain to its full potential, whereas others stretch their brain far beyond its potential—and try to take over the world. At Power Brain Training Center, certified brain-education trainers fuse traditional Asian mind-body practices with the principles of neuroscience to create a curriculum that teaches adults and children how to properly manage the power of their brains. The center utilizes its own five steps of brain education to help people reduce stress, improve concentration, lose weight, and have those long-awaited telepathic conversations with their pets. The trainers use a combination of physical exercise to amp up blood circulation and mental-fitness exercises to help the brain become more adaptable. Mindful breathing and confidence-building exercises work to release negative emotions and refresh the brain. Finally, the trainers teach their pupils to implement the principles of their training in daily life to help students master and control their brain's potential for good.
