Since she first began painting elaborate fingernail art, Paula's favorite canvases were people. She mastered manicures, permanent-makeup application, and even the creation of porcelain dolls. Today, however, she focuses her talents on guests at All About Face, where she draws wearable art directly onto their bodies. Her face-painting designs transform kids into fearsome tigers or ethereal butterflies, and her henna tattoos ornament limbs with swirling flowers and suns. She also specializes in tattoos made entirely of glitter, which take the form of vibrant dragonflies or glimmering, abstract spirals.

A massage from Jessica Yvette is like two spa treatments in one. Jessica slathers bodies with organic coconut oil during her kneadings, which include Swedish massages or her personal favorite, lomi lomi massages. The coconut oil is primarily used to help her hands glide effortlessly over the body, but it also acts as an intensive moisturizing treatment for the skin. Plus, because it has anti-bacterial properties, it may help fight acne much more effectively than coating the back in toothpaste.

However, Jessica doesn't use the oil during every massage. Sometimes, she needs to use focused pressure to work out deep kinks, such as with her deep-tissue massages, and sometimes, her clients stay fully clothed while she stretches out their limbs, such as with her Thai massages.

When she's not reducing stress through massages, she's doing it through body-scrub sessions with aromatherapy, spa facial therapy, and reiki energy healing.
