The stylists at Shear Madness are equally comfortable sprucing up hairstyles with cuts and color treatments, waxing away facial hair, and misting exteriors with airbrush tans. But unlike Icarus, who flew so close to the sun that his wings got all sweaty and gross, they know their limitations; they pass clients over to an onsite massage therapist for bodywork sessions, which range from 30 to 90 minutes. Ever accommodating, the staff welcomes walk-ins during most business hours and on Saturdays, and they also schedule appointments for after 5 p.m.

After more than 13 years in the massage business, Marta Vishy closed her practice to focus on being a mother to her newborn son. Now her decade-long hiatus has ended, and Marta has returned with a new wealth of life experience to draw from. In the comfort of a cozy room, guests can seek her expertise for flowing Swedish strokes to promote relaxation or request deep-tissue pressure or trigger-point therapy to relieve lower-layer aches.
Whether performing a Swedish massage or energy work, licensed massage therapist Mary Glimpse customizes every treatment to suit the client. No two massages at Healing Touch Massage and Wellness are exactly alike?Glimpse may supplement a Swedish massage with a stroke from her deep-tissue repertoire, or she might simply sprinkle the back muscles with a touch of paprika.
At Starla's Salon & Spa, more than 20 beauty professionals dedicate their talents toward enhancing natural beauty. They each possess a rich backlog of experience. Owner Starla Zarbo, a stylist with more than 20 years of experience, sets the example by continually enrolling in educational seminars. Aesthetician Judy Kohlberg has accumulated more than 1,000 hours of additional training in London, and integrates technology into various treatments, using a mechanical wand to resurface skin and a cold-light laser to diminish signs of aging such as crow's feet and eagle talons. These women join other specialists who work in a sunlit salon with black, red, and white walls.
