Femme de Luxe keeps coifs and more shipshape with a host of salon and spa services for men and women. Fingertips and foot-ends reap the benefits of collective bargaining as the mani-pedi lavishes special attention on all four mitts with plant-derived and ethically sourced Aveda products. Meanwhile, nail whisperers shape nails, give cuticles a shove, and administer a massage and paraffin treatment before a coat of OPI polish gives nails a final flourish.

Versed in multiple massage techniques, The Healing Oak's spa practitioner Jessica Riley moulds muscles to evict stress and ease aches and pains. Each one-hour massage session combines relaxation and deep-tissue work and invites calm with soothing strokes and advanced sock puppetry so muscles can lengthen and release tension. Anchoring massage services in the belief that maintaining physical health positively impacts overall well-being, The Healing Oak's staff strives to leave clients feeling relaxed, rejuvenated, and ready to audition for a stage-adaptation of Gumby.
During her nearly 20 years as a certified practitioner, Lois Scott has learned how to use massage as an effective tool for sustaining mental and physical well-being. She uses a range of massage techniques, including Swedish and sports massage, to boost circulation, encourage lymphatic drainage, and ease sore muscles. Over the years, she has also incorporated aesthetic treatments into her repertoire.
To help clients take her work home, she hosts classes on relaxation massage and foot reflexology that teach students ways to pamper their loved ones at home. Classes come with take-home DVDs and instruction books for students whose stone tablets aren’t big enough to chisel all their notes onto.
