The pampering professionals at Ethereal cater to clients' beauty-therapy needs with traditional spa services and high-tech light-therapy facials. A relaxing spa tour, the Made in Heaven package kicks off with a dip in the hot tub for 20 minutes of weightless hydrotherapeutic relaxation. A 60-minute Swedish massage unwinds tight muscles and relaxes the body with long, languorous strokes before a detoxifying sauna session, dry or steamy. The sauna's heat can extract body toxins, purifying pores and melting muscles the way a flock of baby dragons melts the heart.
Natural light pours through the salon’s large front windows onto polished wood floors and walls decorated with intricate paisley designs like blooming flowers. Amid these modern accents, skilled stylists sculpt sleek layers and manufacture bold highlights to frame the face. Clients may also solicit Total Image for a waxing session, colorful mani-pedi, or a brief lounge in one of several high-tech solar tanning beds.

Working as a paramedic for 10 years, Beth Thompson witnessed the damage of unhealthy eating habits up close and personal. With a passion for wellness burnished by her experiences in that job, she earned her teacher’s license to show young people how to preempt diet-caused illness. That endeavor eventually led her to create Target Metabolism, a health-and-wellness company that champions weight loss through accurate analysis of the body and caloric tracking. Beth and her team of registered dieticians work with clients to create personal portraits of their metabolic needs, and they delve into thinking past carbohydrates and focusing on a “calories in vs. calories out” metric. This caloric count is based on the client's specific metabolism, rather than the average metabolism of the client's age, weight, height, and gender group. In addition to dieticians, the staff includes massage therapists that offer specific treatments to help the body relax during the weight-loss process. Modalities include hot stone and aromatherapy.
