The staff at Styles of India focuses solely on the art of hair removal to shape brows and remove unwanted fuzz across the entire physique. An ancient technique, threading makes use of pure cotton strands, rolled and lifted along the face and eyebrows to remove hair in a straight line—ideal for eyebrows or sculpting sideburns into the style Benjamin Franklin sported: lightning bolts. The technicians at Styles of India are also adept with wax, removing unwanted hair from legs, arms, and bikini lines.
The scents of aromatherapy drift throughout Ash Britt Je' Ne' Celebrity Spa, where licensed massage therapists have been pampering stressed muscles with healing massage strokes since 1982. Inside fragrant massage suites, therapists rub away muscle tension with gliding effleurage strokes that stimulate circulation and set off toxin scavenger hunts sponsored by the lymphatic system. The gentle motions pave the way for firmer petrissage strokes, whose combination of kneading and tapping focuses on muscle knots and areas of particular stress. The massage cleanses muscles of impurities and loosens stiff knots, assuaging both quotidian tension and pain from overexertion, chronic conditions, and back flipping home from the Olympic closing ceremonies. Clients will also receive a complimentary spa gift to take home at the end of their massage.
Tracey Butterfly Clark, the owner and head healer at Mariposas Garden, wants to make every service at her soothing studio an experience to remember. Against a backdrop of Buddhas, mirrors, and butterflies, Tracey offers multiple types of massage therapy, from Swedish and hot stone modalities to deep-tissue, prenatal, and Thai bodywork. Along with massage, clients might enjoy the luxurious chocolate facial, which uses a cacao bean scrub to exfoliate the skin—it's the number one facial in the world according to Willy Wonka.
Solutions Health & Rehabilitation counsels patients on the path towards both physical and mental health. Therapists guide physical recovery from auto accidents or workplace accidents, helping patients recover and build the strength to return to form.

Touch of Pure Joy Massage & Day Spa situates itself as an oasis for physical relaxation, and has relaxed clients with its signature therapies since 1999. A one-hour hot-stone massage gives stressed clients the opportunity to unwind and enjoy an utterly unrushed experience as aromatherapeutic oils perfume the air and stones send warmth deep into muscles. For those experiencing chronic pain or the discomforts of pregnancy, deep-tissue, applied kinesiology, and prenatal massages forge a truce between muscles caught in a tug-of-war match between the office chair and that recliner in the office lobby. When they've explored the spa's extensive repertoire of relaxing massages, clients can extend their day spa mini vacations with a skin-perfecting facial, or bid adieu to sandpaper skin with hand and foot salt scrubs.
The massage therapists at Horizon Massage and Wellness have noticed something over their more than 18 years in business: an increase in stress among their patients. They do their best to counteract this rising tension with soothing handiwork in styles that range from gently relaxing Swedish massage to prenatal massage to the intense strokes of deep-tissue massage. Not only working out of their Dallas-area locations, staffers occasionally travel to local businesses to perform 15-minute massages on especially rigid office chairs.
