Meeting Your Kneads means meeting clients on their front doorsteps.

Consider VA Spa & Salon a beauty and relaxation sanctuary. Inspired by beauty icons of the past such as Audrey Hepburn, whose portrait hangs above a pedicure chair, the staff beautifies its clients with hair styling, nail care, and other spa treatments. To wit, the Rita Hayworth Touch and Caress treatment combines a soothing Swedish massage with essential oils for complete relaxation. And aestheticians specialize in administering facials inspired by Grace Kelly or Ava Gardner, and, for the gents, a Cary Grant facial that includes a neck and shoulder massage.
The breadth of Taschler Spine & Rehab's list of alternative treatments makes it easier for doctors of chiropractic Jennifer Lee Taschler and Kevin P. Ward to do their jobs. That's because, depending on their patients' needs, they can mix-and-match treatments to create a level of personalized healthcare normally only obtained by having a hospital wing named after you. A particular patient, for example, could complement their deep-tissue massage with therapeutic exercises, spinal decompression, e-stem, therapeutic ultrasound to relax their muscles, or nutritional supplementation. Drs. Taschler and Ward stand by the motto of
"Got pain? We have the answer!" They offer traditional chiropractic work which they can augment with therapeutic pillows, lumbar ice packs, and heating pads.
At Bela Luz Health Salon, which derives its name from the Portuguese words for “beautiful light,” wellness specialists harness the power of light-based technology and detox treatments to instill a sense of wellbeing from the inside out. The techs coddle mainframes in herbal and mineral body wraps, which sculpt sleeker shapes while ousting toxins through the lymphatic system. Infrared light shares the stage in a duo of treatments, soothing muscles alongside jade rollers in sauna massage beds and reversing wrinkles while hides soak up UV rays during skin-rejuvenation tanning. Additionally, Bela Luz’s skin savants utilize LED light to chase away fine lines and monsters during DermaKinetics and LED photo facials.
Looking good and feeling good should go hand in hand, which is why the staff at Dante Salon & Wellness Spa has compiled a list of services that go beyond beauty to help treat full-body health.

Meanwhile, aestheticians coddle skin in Image Skincare professional products that soak into pores to remove dirt and exfoliate away dead skin cells before they have a chance to rise again as undead skin cells.
