Transformations Health’s services chase a single end result: weight loss. From custom weight-loss programs to whole-body-vibration sessions to untying anvils knotted to their customers' ankles, the staffers at Transformations help clients pursue their slimmer selves under professional, safe supervision. Their goal-oriented programs begin and end with professional feedback so that participants can apply the weight-loss tools they've discovered to their everyday lives.
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.
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.

Maintenance includes a one-time resetting or removal of the quills for clients in need of general upkeep or a reprieve from roosting cockatiels.
