From the deep stretching of sports massage to the precise pressure of shiatsu treatments, licensed massage therapists Aimee Wood, Josh Berndt, and Jesse Walters work to find the modality best suited to relieving their clients' pain and tension at BodyWorks Massage. Besides massage services, the trio can treat ailments throughout the body using holistic treatments such as reflexology and ear candling. Rather than hiding their secrets on the back of the Declaration of Independence, the three pass on their knowledge through classes on topics such as infant massage and core conditioning.
At Threading by Sonia, Sonia uses her experience as a licensed aesthetician to remove facial hair via the ancient art of threading. Using her fingers and a single loop of thread, she precisely shapes eyebrows by removing hair by the root. She completes the process without using harsh chemicals and without pulling on the skin beneath the hair, which can be gentler and last longer than other hair-removal methods such as shaving or poking the hair follicles with a rock.
As a personal trainer certified by the American Council on Exercise and a licensed massage therapist, Chris Aiello, Jr., has a thorough knowledge of the human body. He created Workout Boss as a facility where clients can tap into his expertise to address issues related to health, posture, and injury all in one place. He chats with patrons during personal-training sessions, encouraging them while blending cardio and a range of exercises in a gym with free weights, cable machines, kettlebells, and punching bags. On massage tables, therapists employ specialized techniques such as myofascial release and lymphatic drainage, which aim to straighten postural irregularities and detoxify muscles, and utilize deep-tissue massage to ease pain from sports or other injuries. The trainer also draws on a stock of recipes and nutritional advice to help clients augment workout plans and shed inches.

The salon?s master stylists shampoo and blow-dry hair before sculpting it into busts of George Washington, and steady-handed nail technicians tend to hands and feet with luxurious manicures and pedicures.
