Situated in the middle of Oregon, Redmond acts as a logical home base to explore activities across the state. A 20-minute drive north in Terrebonne, Smith Rock State Park draws rock climbers with its impressive crags of welded tuff and hundreds of routes for both novices and experts. Groups of climbers camp out for $5 a night, gathering around communal picnic tables each morning to share breakfast and scheme the next day's adventures.About 20 miles west of Redmond, the little town of Sisters exudes cowboy-country charm, with quaint shops lining the main street hawking everything from T-shirts to barbecue to boots. Sisters takes its name from the nearby Three Sisters peaks of the Cascades, Hope Faith, and Charity, which rise like virtuous, volcanic older siblings in the distance.Roughly 17 miles south of Eagle Crest Resort, the city of Bend represents Central Oregon's largest metropolis, with its historic Old Mill District bustling alongside its lively downtown. The Deschutes Brewery keeps this beer town's whistle whetted, restaurants emit the smell of grilled fare, and music venues buzz with blues-rock. A chat with lifelong Bend and Redmond resident Dylan Jones sums up the common sentiment of the locale: "It seems everyone wants to be here nowadays. They're catching on."
Pure Esthetics Skin Care rejuvenates skin with LED light therapy and luxurious treatments powered by Repêchage, EcoEssences, and Anesi products.

After visiting one of the studio's seasoned waxing technicians, brows, legs, and bikini lines emerge smoother than a dolphin in silk pajamas.
The licensed massage therapists at Massage Advantage dote on visitors with a slew of custom massage techniques, including Swedish, prenatal, and deep tissue. Armed with warm blankets and a credo to respect patients' privacy, therapists begin each 30- or 60-minute session with a discussion on clients' specific aches and ailments. Therapists can also haul their equipment to office buildings for workplace chair massages that help reinvigorate fatigued employees or stressed-out water coolers during 5–15 minute stints. Each succession of kneads is designed to alleviate stress, muscles soreness, and various medical conditions, such as high blood pressure.

Do you use any products or brands you're particularly proud of? What makes them uniquely effective?
I use a totally organic, edible beeswax-based massage cream that is made locally here in Oregon.
Besides making clients happy, what do you like most about your job?
I love the sensation of feeling the muscles give and begin to completely relax and melt under my finger tips. It is the moment when the muscles begin to "melt" that I know the truly deep and effective work can begin.
What's the most common beauty mistake you see people make? What would you recommend they do instead?
People should try to look like the best version of themselves, as opposed to trying to look like an ideal.
