At Four Paws Spa, groomer Laura hides nothing, preferring to wash, trim, and pamper pups where everyone can see them. She beautifies every canine that walks through the door and ensures all clients leave the business free of excess hair, fleas, and bad attitudes. The spa's services run the gamut and include shedding treatments, nail trimming, anal-gland expression, and fur coloring for all breeds and sizes.
The family-owned Rhanes Spa offers its clients an abundance of holistic facials, massages services, and other aesthetic and relaxation treatments. Its diverse service menu includes traditional spa and salon services, from Swedish and deep-tissue massage to reflexology and tanning, which is useful when your baseball mitt’s been in the garage all winter. It also pairs these classics with inventive offerings such as the Bellanina face-lift massage, an all-natural means of releasing tension in the face to lessen the appearance of fine lines, as well as sugaring—an alternative to waxing—and Alpha heating treatments that help detoxify the body.
The family of florists at Rebecca's Flowers and Gifts builds elegant, prismatic arrangements with an arsenal of fresh flora that includes tropical blooms, dried flowers, and a diverse jungle of greenery. Petals of such varieties as roses, lilies, and orchids sprout from the elegant creations, whose spectrum of colors can help to enliven weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, and black-and-white-movie marathons. The designers also flaunt their artistic finesse as they construct gift baskets brimming with candy, fruit, and gourmet snacks.
The staff at Asporea seeks to destress guests with a slate of body wraps and customized full-body massages. To unearth stubborn knots, the spa's massage therapists call on a variety of techniques, such as the strokes of effleurage, the percussive techniques of tapotement, and vibration, which relies on shaking sleeping muscles awake so they stop dreaming about human pretzels. Beyond their standard strokes, the professionals can augment massages with tension-melting hot stones and skin-softening paraffin wax.
Express Lawn Services supplements landscapes with grass-growing products and services designed to rouse ailing lawns from slanted or injured states. Thinning, weakened yards damaged by pets, children, or copycat crop-circle artists may be returned to their green glory with a dose of Bermuda sod. One pallet, which covers about 550 square feet of ground, strives to cultivate lush, skyward-blooming blades from downtrodden land. Bermuda sod is a durable grass known for its capacity to withstand hot, sunny climates and its eerily sentient ability to scream at neighborhood kids that dare to tread upon it.
Famous Footwear offers an array of fashionable hoof-hammocks, humanely branded with well-known names like PUMA, Skechers, and Naturalizer, and ready to anchor the wanderings of children, juniors, and adults. Outrun gravity’s painful punches with a pair of Nike Dual Air Fusion running shoes (women’s and men’s models), or cool off your overly hot dogs with a classic duo of Converse Chuck Taylors. Famous Footwear’s extensive selection of women’s dress shoes perform fancier footwork, adorning the fashionably frugal with such pedal accouterments as Madden Girl Fawwns, which have a trendy taupe tone that camouflages stealthy feet in an underbrush of leg. The shop features plenty of girls’ and boys’ options as well, including Crocband clogs made with antimicrobial materials to repel the germs that scour youngsters’ feet for fallen cookie crumbs.
