From her perch at the G.O.A.L Center Spa & Wellness, Jillian F. Fail, LMT, soothes bodies with a combination of massages, facials, and spa services. She treats each service like a work of art, extracting dirt from pores, kneading aches from muscles, and arranging features as Picasso would have them arranged.
