JoLynn Swain doesn?t subscribe to the one-size-fits-all model of massage. The licensed and nationally certified therapist believes in the body?s ability to communicate its needs, and as an intuitive massage artist, her hands pick up on tension, stress, and pain and tailor their movements in accordance. Working within the framework of treatments such as hot-stone, deep-tissue, and prenatal massage, JoLynn listens to each muscle's patterns and deciphers its thick Texas accent to deliver the best possible treatment and address underlying issues such as past injuries or misalignment. In addition to her custom services, she also excels at reflexology as well as oncology massages, which, with a doctor?s consent, can help clients find emotional and physical comfort while undergoing chemo or radiology.

Professional makeup artist Rachel Tate-Study is on a quest to make the world a more beautiful place, one face at a time. The licensed cosmetician and 23-year spa-industry veteran’s work has been seen on red carpets as well as on E’s Fashion Emergency and in the pages of Bridal Star Magazine. Utilizing vitamin-infused makeup compounds by Franché Mineral Cosmetics, she helps faces to adopt a healthy, radiant glow in time for weddings, parole hearings, and other memorable photo opportunities, and she can even lead lessons that show clients how to accentuate natural beauty using products from their own makeup bag. Her real specialty, however, is permanent makeup––a tattoo-like procedure that delivers permanent pigment to the eyelids, brows, or lips and helps clients to save time and avoid allergic reactions from conventional cosmetics. She also uses the micropigmentation technique to camouflage scars following breast-cancer surgery or other procedures, leading her to receive referrals from countless dermatologists and plastic surgeons throughout the state.
As clients step inside a massage treatment room at Body Logic Massage, soft lighting pairs with a hint of aromatherapy to set the stage for sublime relaxation. For all initial sessions, the massage therapist consults with the client to review health history and help ensure optimal results. Massages are available in durations ranging from 15 to 90 minutes, and clients can opt to undress completely, remain fully clothed, or wear an old suit of armor—whichever is most comfortable. In addition to traditional massage sessions, Body Logic Massage also offers ear-candling services and chair massages.
