Gaylan Roth knows pain. At the age of 10, his mother was diagnosed with fibromyalgia, and he would often try to relieve her ailments with gentle yet therapeutic massage. Seeing the way his own hands could take away some of her suffering, Gaylan decided to pursue massage therapy as a career in order to bring the same type of relief and healing to others.
Today, he augments traditional Swedish and deep-tissue massage with aromatherapy and tension-melting hot stones, which are placed upon acupressure points to loosen muscles and melt any icebergs clients have accidentally swallowed. On select evenings, his therapists use their hands to deliver simultaneous stress melting during couples massages or safe and therapeutic relief during prenatal sessions. The spa’s treatments are designed to alleviate ailments ranging from anxiety to migraines, though all services are custom tailored to treat the unique needs of every client.
Elevations Therapeutic Massage's two NCBTMB-certified male massage therapists soothe tense muscles with Swedish and hot-stone massages. Inside the studio’s private treatment rooms, tranquilizing music and the scents of aromatherapy oils drift over trickling fountains, comfy massage beds, and candles lit by the joyous tears of sensitive fireflies. To supplement their massage work, the therapists offer several add-on services including warm bamboo-fusion techniques, deep-tissue kneads, invigorating aromatherapy oils, and massage cupping to stimulate circulation.
While rocks serve many purposes—eco-friendly paperweight, climbing wall, letter opener—you probably never thought they could help alleviate your chronic back pain. In fact, memories of the rocky bedding on your last camping trip suggest that stones may have contributed to the problem in the first place.

The relaxation experts behind AQUA Spa & Wellness Center understand that men pamper themselves differently than women, which is why they designed both a general menu and a menu specifically for gents. Men, women, and Cabbage Patch children all benefit from Aqua’s status as a certified green spa that uses organic and all-natural products, including handmade Eminence Organic skincare salves from Hungary. The spa’s team performs an array of facials that use fruit pulp and seeds to help remove dead skin cells and clean dirt and oil out of pores. They also administer body-contouring wraps with M’lis products that help boost circulation and detoxify the body.
At ADIO Chiropractic Center, Dr. Matthew Dickson uses natural chiropractic care to help each of his clients achieve optimal health. He begins with a comprehensive consultation to determine each patient’s history and concerns. After that, he performs an exam, using orthopedic, neurological, and chiropractic testing methods as needed. Spinal adjustments and non-surgical decompression treatments can help with a wide range of problems, from chronic pain and fatigue to auto injuries and headaches. Dr. Dickson focuses on finding the cause of health problems so he can eradicate them at the source, rather than simply ameliorating the symptoms or convincing patients that a third ear is actually a very good look.
At International Eyebrows, owner Hana Abebe and her staff have many ways of highlighting their clients' natural beauty. Her signature service is facial threading, in which she loops a long, cotton thread around unwanted hairs on the brows, upper lips, and hairlines. This technique offers more precision than waxing, allowing her to create a perfect brow arch. However, she tackles larger areas of the body with wax, creating smooth legs and beach-ready bikini lines in a more traditional manner. She rounds out her service menu with nourishing facials, which help improve the clarity of your skin without sleeping in a bath of mud every night.
