All too often, muscle pain holds people back from enjoying their day-to-day lives. The Center for Neuromuscular Therapy has been helping clients escape the shackles of those chronic aches for 21 years. By specializing in alleviating pain, the staff is able to more effectively isolate and eliminate the problem. The team also recognizes that, like a snowflake or each of Abraham Lincoln's beard hairs, each patient's problems are unique.
The center treats pain with neuromuscular massage therapy and deep-tissue treatments that target specific body aches. It also relies on holistic practices such as chiropractic, yoga, and a Chinese cupping technique.

Studio 210 Salon founder Sohelia has more than 15 years of experience behind her, but still she shines the spotlight on her coworkers, gushing on the staff page about her salon's "house full of energetic and enthusiastic hair stylists." Her team of makeup artists bring with them their own distinctions, including Catherine, a former model and theatrical costume designer, and Casey, a makeup and hair department head for E! Entertainment. The entire beauty team, working in conjunction with massage expert Kim, devotes themselves to subtle, feature-flattering makeovers or aesthetic overhauls on par with Picasso's shift from his blue period to his burndt-sienna phase.

At Releaf Day Spa, experienced nail technicians lavish fingers and toes with professional nail-care services. During a 75-minute gel manicure, a nail pro sculpts talons, restrains encroaching cuticles, and scrubs away lifeless cells before applying blankets of CND Shellac, a durable UV-set gel polish that can last up to two weeks on natural nails and deliver the winning edge in games of paper football. The 75-minute spa manicure supplements basic grooming and standard polish with a dip in paraffin wax to hydrate the skin, a hand-and-arm massage to release limbs laden with tension, and aromatherapy oils to relax and untangle frazzled fingers. Alternatively, clients can opt for nail extensions, annexing digits with a full set of thin, flexible, Backscratchers extensions that sustain color for weeks at a time without harming the natural nails below. Releaf's cheerily patterned wallpaper, gilded mirrors, and vintage furnishings add a sense of eclectic fun to serene, unhurried service.
