Once an international gymnastics competitor, Ken Haas had to turn away from the tumbling lifestyle after his body began to ache. Sports orthopedists couldn't determine what was wrong, he told Charlotte Today, but a kinesiologist finally helped him through alternative methods—methods that Ken, now Dr. Haas, employs at Haas Wellness Center. Understandably, applied kinesiology remains one of the center's major focuses. This system tests for muscle responses throughout the body, scouting for weaknesses that could indicate treatable conditions. Its techniques can even incorporate teachings from acupuncture and nutrition for a truly holistic approach.
Dr. Haas's other services run the gamut from screenings for environmental toxins to natural weight-loss programs and low-level-laser therapy, a purported pain deterrent. Trigger-point therapy, myofascial-release work, and essential oils all contribute to the center's signature massage, and craniosacral therapy employs extremely gentle touch—no more than the weight of a nickel—to try and relieve imbalanced nervous systems, a more relaxing method than shouting into your ear for your brain to "stay calm!"
Board-certified surgeon Dr. Bruce Marko has a light touch for body sculpting and facial rejuvenation at Enhanced Images Medical, eschewing the "no pain, no gain" beauty philosophy. Dedicated to minimally invasive procedures, he has continually sought out new, gentle technology since he completed his surgical residency at the Orlando Regional Medical Center and saw the wrinkles Linda Hamilton developed while screaming in The Terminator. His specialty in microscopic hair transplantation represents both his technical precision—he painstakingly duplicates the original growth pattern with new follicles—and his interest in creating a natural look with small adjustments. He also takes his time with patients, who develop a safe, effective route toward their ideal look during free 20-minute conferences.
Although Dr. Marko can lift slack cheeks with a few deft incisions, he maintains a collection of five cosmetic injections to smooth facial creases with little more than a pinprick. Erchonia and Cynosure lasers help patients to sidestep weight-loss surgery and skin-rejuvenation techniques that abrade cheeks through exposure to Fran Drescher's laugh, and the lasers can also rout toenail fungus and unwanted hair.
Skin Elements MedSpa's Dr. Gail Griffin supervises a team of registered nurses and skin specialists as they perform a suite of advanced aesthetic services using tools including hair- and tattoo-removing lasers, dermal fillers, and microdermabrasion wands. To ward off signs of aging and restore patients' youthful glow, the team can create an individualized beauty plan incorporating traditional spa facials to address fine lines or acne, chemical peels to erase hyperpigmentation and smooth wrinkles, and microdermabrasion to resurface faces for a perfect canvas for moisturizer, makeup, or clown noses applied with Gorilla Glue. Clients can seek more pronounced results with dermal fillers such as Botox, which enter the skin via injection where they work to immobilize the muscles that cause wrinkles on the forehead and around the mouth and eyes.
If you’re looking for variety, MC3 Salon and Wellness Center doesn’t disappoint with a service menu that reads like an encyclopedia of salon and spa treatments. Led by 28-year veteran Mickey Coffino, the salon’s stylists revitalize hair with everything from simple cuts to keratin straightening treatments. Not to be outdone, the spa’s nail technicians hydrate hands in warm paraffin wax and brush vibrant OPI polish across nails during manicures and pedicures.
As if that weren’t enough, the spa’s licensed aestheticians soothe and restore skin with nearly 20 services for the face and body. MC3’s services extend far beyond what you might expect from a traditional spa—there’s even a 20-minute teeth-whitening treatment that brightens teeth by up to 10 shades to attract strangers or blind unsuspecting enemies.
With padded lime-green chairs lounging on a pillared porch that runs the length of a two-story, century-old wooden house in Dilworth, Folicle could easily be mistaken for a bed and breakfast at first glance. Though they can’t stay the night, guests are encouraged to stop and rest awhile as stylists and aestheticians snip, shade, and smooth their hair, shape their nails, or unknot their muscles amid floor-to-ceiling mirrors that reflect honey wood floors.
Globetrotting salon CEO Edward Woody shares expertise garnered from training with Vidal Sassoon, Aveda, and the Netherlands’ Keune and a sense of style honed while designing dos for Badgley Mischka, Ellen Tracy, and the fashion spreads of several magazines. Visitors who catch his ear may find him ready to point out the salon’s eco-friendly features, such as a shampoo-area floor made from recycled tennis shoes and furniture made from banana plants whose monkeys had already abandoned them.
As a mother of two, the owner of Shug-A-Bug Kids Spa understands the value of mother-daughter bonding. Though her bubblegum-pink spa for girls sets the scene for storybook spa days, her crusade for beauty is secondary to empowering young girls through their own intelligence, healthy choices, and cutthroat campaigns for public office. In step with this philosophy, she pioneers programs that reward good grades and other accomplishments with services, including candy-flavored mani-pedis and facials. Beautifiers only employ natural products without harsh chemicals, ensuring that makeup or updo sessions unfold without evoking a thunderstorm from a miffed Mother Nature.
The spa's whimsical decor lends itself to everyday outings and birthday parties alike. Beach chairs line the walls in lieu of pedicure chairs, a giant pink high heel offers cushy seating, and a poster of Justin Bieber casts a swoon-worthy gaze at guests.
Fresh off her achievement of becoming the valedictorian of her graduating class at Dudley’s Beauty College, Hope D. Hannibal wanted to test her mettle. She signed up for a duo of competitions, snipping and cropping her way to a second- and third-place finish in the Bronner Bros. Student Rising Star and Student Mannequin competitions. Springboarding off those victories, and undergirded by her bachelor's in business management, the aesthetics go-getter started her own salon.
In 2009, she flung open the doors to Bella Cheveux Salon and Spa, where she and her staff treat clients to an array of prettifying services. As a national educator for Dudley’s haircare products, Hope ensures that her team is up on the latest beauty innovations. She harnesses continuing education and training to outfit her patrons with the latest trends, sprucing up coifs with cuts, highlights, and relaxers or accenting nails with colors more dynamic than a rainbow seen through a prism.
Insight Wellness's resident massage therapist and acupuncturist, Tom Cohen, aids achy backs by applying the theories of the Somatic Education Technique (SET), a system he also relies on in his role as a martial-arts trainer. The core of this philosophy is that our bodies change slowly, and that once we live with bad habits, such as poor posture, we must concentrate on "unlearning" them before we can be well again, much as dogs must unlearn their master's commands before they can hold political office.
These beliefs manifest in Cohen's services, which include orthopedic pain-management acupuncture sessions that treat not only aches and pains, but fatigue, stress, and insomnia. Cohen's massage talents are likewise far ranging: his neuromuscular therapy manipulates the body's trigger points to eliminate the source of pain, and his sports massages improve flexibility and relieve injuries, earning him the endorsement of professional football player Damione Lewis.
Unruly curls can find a place to belong under the auspices of the Ouidad-trained staff at Alter Ego Salon & Day Spa. Healthy, manageable curls result from use of the trademark Carving & Slicing technique that maintains and enhances the natural pattern of spirographical locks. As one of the salon’s Ouidad-certified stylists, owner Jennifer Godfrey finds that helping clients love their curls has been one of the most rewarding parts of her 12-year experience. Aside from helping ringlets stay as twisty as the nationally treasured curly fry, Godfrey and her staff tend to various hair types to cut, color, or chemically treat strands. On top of a spread of classic salon services, Alter Ego's nailcare maintains healthy hand appearance, and special children’s mani-pedis keeps little ones' claws sharp to guard against impending scratch-n-sniff pop quizzes.
Vervé Beauty Spa & Salon's owner and licensed cosmetologist, Verbena Wilson, beautifies physiques with massage, facial, waxing, nail, and hair services. Experienced staff members wield Image Skincare products comprised of organic ingredients, as well as contemporary techniques in hair-cuttery and manicures.

As a native of Trinidad, Marcia M. Speer lives and breathes the serenity of the islands. Her grandfather made a living as a healer there, and he eventually passed down his gift for touch. Marcia called on this gift again and again while attending the Southeastern School of Neuromuscular & Massage Therapy and finally opening My Island Touch, where she draws on her family traditions—as well as her experience as a nursing assistant and an EMT—to nurture her clients' minds, bodies, and souls with massage. She employs Swedish, deep-tissue, and hot-stone techniques to help boost circulation and soften overused muscles. She also calls on marjoram to soothe headaches, lavender to ease anxiety, and romantic comedies to loosen tense tear ducts.
Beneath the roof at Satin Med Spa, a team of medical providers, a physician, a nurse practitioner, and a well-meaning juggler specialize in noninvasive medical procedures. The staff emphasizes a patient-first approach, taking part in complimentary consultations to answer all questions and plan customized treatment programs. They then perform treatments such as Botox and dermal fillers to assuage frown lines, laser hair removal to smooth skin, laser tattoo removal to remove unwanted ink, and facial treatments such as refreshing chemical peels and microdermabrasion.
Tina Sewell, the licensed massage and bodywork therapist who helms Spa Bliss, channels the relaxing vibe of Hawaii with soothing strokes from around the world. After graduating from the Atlanta School of Massage, she honed her skills in a chiropractor's office in Maui. Here, she developed expertise in lomilomi, a Hawaiian massage technique that involves manipulating sore muscles with the hands and forearms. Like many of her services, lomilomi can ease physical tension while dissolving emotional stress and undigested fudgesicles. Tina also specializes in neuromuscular therapy, a blend of deep-tissue massage, trigger-point therapy, and Japanese shiatsu techniques that can decrease the chronic pain and stiffness caused by musculoskeletal disorders, tennis elbow, carpal-tunnel syndrome, and TMJ.
True to their name, the folks at Bambù Organic Massage use 100% organic oils and lotions, which are free of parabens and propylene glycol, to guide each and every one of their relaxing and therapeutic massages. Jeffrey Paul Schafer and the six other nationally certified massage therapists specialize in their own brand of bodywork, including time-tested standbys such as Swedish and deep-tissue, but all share a desire to work out stress and muscle kinks and can combine modalities to induce mind-body harmony. The versatile menu of massages also goes beyond the basics to include exotic treatments such as reiki and bamboo massage, which augments deep muscular work with warm bamboo stalks to soothe tense muscles and lure away any pandas sitting on the spine.
