The fitness instructors, massage therapists, and holistic well-being specialists at Beaverton Healing Center all have the same mission: to create a positive learning and healing space. To that end, services are geared toward balancing mind, body, and spirit, with offerings such as private and group yoga classes, chakra clearings, and pregnancy massages. The center's motto is "you deserve good things" and that policy is followed from top to bottom—even the floors are cleaned with special H2O steam mops that also coo lullabies to your ankles.

At The Strand at Sola Salons, the deft and generous fingers of stylists Abby and Michele attend to scalps with relaxing, massaging movements. This supplemental courtesy, which accommodates every haircut, evidences the duo’s commitment to client satisfaction. Abby and Michele don’t just rush through services; rather, they take time to listen to clients before administering signature cuts, colorings, or keratin smoothing treatments. In this way, they not only achieve unique and classic styles—they also generate good karma with clients so they can form long-term relationships and eventually be reincarnated in the form of well-groomed poodles.
Many people realize their lives' passions during college. Rachel Joyce discovered hers in a car accident.
