On the back deck of The Vineyard Salon, a set of french doors invites guests meander in and out while their color treatments process. It's here where clients can unwind while admiring tangles of foliage in the adjacent vineyard or while listening to the soft gurgle of nearby creek. Beyond the entry of this peaceful haven, The Vineyard Salon's team of certified cosmetologists, aestheticians, and manicurists pamper clients with an indulgent barrage of beauty treatments. There's even an essential oils specialist on staff who, using only organic products, employs the soothing oils during scalp massages that are at once uplifting and relaxing. That emphasis on comfort is the theme at this full-service salon and spa, whether clients stop by for haircuts and color treatments, facials, or Swedish massages. The services here go beyond the standard, too?the beauty experts also offer permanent makeup applications and teeth whitening to clean up traces left from coffee, wine, and chewing nervously on paintballs.

Why did you decide to start this business?
Although Physical Connections only recently celebrated its grand opening, fitness, massage and nutrition have always been a big part of my life. I owned a mobile fitness business for 10 years, and I have contributed to the health and wellness industry since 1988. After battling cancer for five years, I personally identify with the importance of staying healthy and being fit for longevity. I bring life experience as well as education to my business.
Do you use any products or brands you're particularly proud of? What makes them uniquely effective?
For massage clients, I use Biotone massage lotion, and I apply warm, steamed towels to remove any excess lotion. Yoga classes have access to prop blocks for assisting in movements. I customize Meal plans as well as personal training sessions.
A pinched nerve. A tweaked muscle. An out-of-whack joint. For most people, these ailments represent an inevitable facet of the aging process; for massage therapist Karin Ward, they represent an opportunity for improvement. Karin uses her sessions to jumpstart the healing process with therapeutic bodywork learned over a 13-year career. Whether she's easing nagging pain with gentle Swedish strokes or targeting deeper discomfort with the help of soothing hot stones, Karin delivers treatments that leave her clients rested, relaxed, and ready to face the day's next challenge.
As part of the salon team at Selah—which comes from the Hebrew word for "pause"—Corinna Rose performs an extensive selection of salon treatments supported by research on the most current styles and techniques. She specializes in cuts and color, and can adjust hair hues with all-over color gloss or meticulously placed highlights. There are also texturizing treatments, such as body waves and keratin infusions, as well as weave and extension applications that are more en vogue than a powdered wig or a salted cornrow.
A plump Buddha statue stands guard near the entrance of Chakras Healing and Day Spa. Along with Persian rugs and earth-toned walls, he's part of the award-winning spa's decorative strategy meant to ease clients' minds. Client peace of mind is one of the highest priorities of Chakras' staff, which is composed entirely of veteran providers. They believe Chakras' exclusive use of high-end products and reliably comfortable ambiance are the two chief factors that attract clientele. For example, while treatment rooms at some other spas have sterile, clinical-looking furnishings or are haunted by ghosts, Chakras' treatment rooms sport hardwood floors, ornate wall hangings and drapes, and soft lighting.
Chakras Healing and Day Spa also offers a large array of spa services including manicures and pedicures, massage treatments, facials, and body wraps. Those looking to combine treatments may opt for one of the spa packages.
