At Within, passionate nutritionist and reflexologist Jennifer Forbes guides patients on a holistic path to health and wellness. After personally experiencing the powers of reflexology to help her heal from second-degree frostbite, Jennifer earned her diploma in the field, and now shares the practice’s benefits of relaxation, stress relief, and enhanced circulation with clients. Her nutritional consultations yield custom plans for diet and lifestyle changes that alleviate fatigue, depression, and cardiovascular irregularities. Toxin-banishing ion cleanses flush the body’s joints, organs, and lymphatic system to revive energy and relieve pain. Patients can also get a muscle-response allergy test and take advantage of ear candling to evict waxy buildup and catchy jingles for sweet potatoes from their heads.
Ever since elementary school, Yugoslavia native Zdenka Jovic yearned to practice massage therapy for a living. She followed her passion to Canada, where she studied at the Canadian College of Massage and Hydrotherapy. With the opening of Zdenka's Divine Therapeutics in 2008, she transformed her passion for massage and its many benefits into a profession. Her practice focuses on massage techniques such as trigger-point release, deep tissue, and relaxation, which makes the body feel as comfortable as a kitten napping in a baseball glove. Her therapeutic services also include wellness procedures such as lymph-node drainage, rehabilitation therapy, and myofascial-release therapy.

Founded by optician and inventor of the double-flare eyelash extension Jason Carruthers, Zipp Lash specializes in long-lasting extensions.

Elite Hair and Skin Care owner Sue Shaker spends her days chasing a natural high. Fifteen years ago, she noticed that feeling confident about her looks positively affected her overall well-being, and so she has been trying to help clients develop confidence through hair ever since. Her journey began at California School of Beauty, where she gravitated toward hair colour because another student mixed the formulas together and created a black hole. Now she corrects unflattering dye jobs with aplomb, having honed her specialty in highlights and lowlights for nearly a decade. To keep the salon current, she attends regular colour classes and arms her fellow stylists with products from Aveda and Moroccanoil.
The resident aesthetician nourishes skin with Dermalogica's products and methods, building custom facials based on analysis of each zone of the client's face and spheres of influence on their friends' faces. Her nimble fingers also manipulate fine threads to shape eyebrows, and trap body hair with traditional resin wax and sugar paste that will not tug on tender skin.
Wielding professional products from Dermalogica, Zoya, and Qtica, aestheticians rejuvenate bodies with a suite of services tailored to each client?s needs. While custom facials clean the skin to remove blackheads and birthday candles buried deep in the follicles, nail services pamper hands and feet with hydrating masks and paraffin dips. Waxing, sugaring, electrolysis, and threading services can rid bodies of unwanted fuzz, and massages help banish tension from achy backs and shoulders.
