EcuaBella Skin Care Spa owner Geovanna Ortega believes that the impact of cosmetic treatments can be more than skin-deep. “Caring for our appearance and looking our best helps us feel better about ourselves," she writes on her spa’s website.

Doctor of Chiropractic Shawn Sizemore presides over a practiced crew of licensed massage therapists that brings more than 40 years of combined know-how to Kentuckiana’s curative kneadings. Having spent his childhood in nearby Irvington, Dr. Sizemore brings a local’s charm to each appointment that, when coupled with his demonstrable chiropractic wisdom, sets his patients’ minds immediately at ease. When he and his staff aren’t massaging muscles to hasten the body’s convalescence from weeklong Simon Says tournaments led by snakes, their noninvasive chiropractic treatments work to realign disks and promote overall health.
