Select one of five types of massage—neuromuscular therapy, therapeutic massage, Swedish massage, aromatherapy, or deep-tissue massage—to reward your body for enduring years of the punishing physical comedy required for success in corporate America.

Like a bespoke Batman costume, each massage is tailored to the personal necessities of each patron.
The aestheticians at The Face Place know that different faces have different skincare needs. That’s why they design each of their facials with an audience in mind—they have a smoker’s facial for smokers, an anti-aging facial for adults advanced in years, a teen facial for adolescents, and a European facial for turncoats. Along with facials, the staff offers a full menu of health and beauty services that includes body treatments, waxing services, and makeup applications. And, to round out the mix of wellness services, they have a clinical hypnotherapist who performs hypnosis to help clients conquer phobias, improve self-confidence, or release stress.
WWE wrestlers, American Idol contestants, and chiropractors have all turned to Hands On Massage and Holistic Therapy's onsite licensed massage therapists for relief. The team has attracted these notable clients by mastering different techniques for different needs: Swedish massages induce a deep sense of relaxation, and neuromuscular massages locate pain's trigger point and stun it into submission before it causes clients to inadvertently name their firstborn children “Ouch.” Each of the center's many modalities is designed to target specific afflictions, and therapists further customize each treatment by focusing on each client's greatest areas of strain.

They also use Premierlash eyelash extensions crafted from 100% cruelty-free mink fur or nylon-based materials.
Going below the surface, Inner Peace Center indulges guests with spiritual services administered by a Reiki master, hypnotherapist, yoga instructor, holistic life coach, and clairvoyant. The retired nurse who oversees and performs these services aims to assist clients in navigating their life path, demagnetizing the needle of anyone’s internal compass.
The stylists at Mitchell's Salon & Day Spa have beautified Cincinnati-area clients for the past 30 years. During that time, the staff has grown to more than 400 employees across five locations. They've also garnered several press mentions, including their most recent victory in The Knot's Best of Weddings 2013. These accolades are all possible because of the meticulous care that the salon pours into both its posh ambiance and soothing treatments. Stylists perfect 'dos with haircuts and smoothing keratin treatments, and aestheticians perform antioxidant facials, which make the skin more resilient against hazards such as environmental damage and cheek-pinching aunts.
