At Divine Wellness, wellness doesn't mean giving up chocolate--instead, it means applying it to your face. During their Chocolate Layered Facial, chocolate-infused products brighten skin, combating signs of aging such as wrinkles and tattoos of rotary telephones. The center's signature facial, meanwhile, deploys products tailored to the client's skin, and the microdermabrasion treatment sloughs away dead skin with sterilized crystals. Massages further relax physiques, in styles ranging from classic Swedish kneads to holsitic reiki massages, which aid the flow of universal life force energy through the body.
At Bridge2Recovery, licensed massage therapist Bridgette Greenfield specializes in therapeutic massage that incorporates three massage styles?relaxing Swedish, vigorous deep tissue, and reflexology. Her single-modality kneads, meanwhile, range from hot stone massages with smooth, volcanic rocks to aromatherapy massage sessions. All massages are set to soothing music, which dissolves stress more effectively than everyone in your life yelling "calm down!"

Today, she's a master stylist, but before beauty school, Hali Owens focused on psychology while immersed in a criminal justice curriculum. Since shifting to her true passion, however, she's cultivated a service menu that ranges from bang trims to elaborate wedding updos topped with three-tier cakes. Despite all these choices, Owens advises guests not to get too overwhelmed: "Don?t worry about knowing exactly what you want," she says. "I am glad to help you decide and make the process as easy and stress-free as possible." Customers are able to relax in Owens's chair, knowing they can depend on her 15 years' experience and expert eye to shape and color the perfect hairdo. Her specialties help clients feel their best, and to Owens, that's the best part of the job: "My favorite moment," she says, "is when my client looks in the mirror at the finished look and I can see their confidence rise!"
Heidi Niewendorp returned from her first-ever massage feeling invigorated, and not only because of the relaxing strokes and customized pressure. It also inspired her to choose a new career path?she realized she wanted to be on the other end of the table helping people as she had been helped. So she attended school, earned her massage therapist's license, and in 2008 began her career. Heidi specializes in firm pressure, performing massages she calls deep-tissue relaxation, which possess both the deep reach that can ease muscle pain and the comforting strokes that can diminish stress. But Heidi is versatile, and she's happy to change up her style?a lighter Swedish massage for general relaxation, perhaps, or a focused pregnancy massage for expecting mothers sore from building geodesic dome-cribs. For even deeper serenity, Heidi also offers hot-stone massage and aromatherapy add-ons.
