As Shawon Brown-Gullette told Robin McMacken of the Dayton Daily News, she keeps a box of tissues near her hair-system station at Infinitee Trichology Centre. But they aren't there to curb sneezes or fold into origami. According to Brown-Gullette, they absorb the tears of joy and renewed self-confidence that the hair-loss expert often witnesses as she outfits clients with discrete hairpieces that match the natural color and texture of surrounding hair.
Brown-Gullette—who is certified through the International Association of Trichologists and who has presented local seminars on hair loss—takes a holistic approach to reversing alopecia, one that may require a commitment to a healthy lifestyle and proper nutrition. After running medical tests to explore the root causes for thinning hair, Brown-Gullette employs several personalized treatments, including the use of electrotherapy, ultraviolet rays, and low-level laser therapy.
Owner and massage therapist Kenyatta Bozeman understands that massage is a practical way to relieve chronic pain?she graduated from the Dayton School of Medical Massage?but she also believes it should be a memorable experience. That's why she enhances her treatments with hot-towel add-ons, nine essential oils including tea tree and ylang-ylang, and even time for an after-massage nap, which can last up to 30 minutes or until the client's REM cycle has finished downloading the latest edition of Netscape Navigator. These add-ons complete the eight styles of massage available, including deep-tissue, hot-stone, and prenatal.
Allurea Salon & Spa’s staffers don’t just cut and color hair—they help restore it with laser treatments that target balding areas on the scalp. They can certainly appreciate a full head of hair, as they spend much of the day straightening and texturizing locks or sewing in extensions for added length. At the same time, the team understands that hair doesn’t always grow where you want it, which is why Allurea includes waxing alongside the makeup applications and mani-pedis that fill out its service menu.
New Beginnings Salon & Spa pampers guests from scalp to toe-tip with an indulgent menu of beautification services.

At Peace Massage & Wellness is a one-stop shop for muscular euphoria, backing each offered service and class with the deft touch and extensive knowledge of an expert staff. Pull the plug on shoulder and back pains with your choice of any of the center's nine 60-minute massages ($60). Swedish massage employs long, soothing strokes to relieve muscular tension and improve blood flow, while craniosacral therapy aims to restore balance within the membranes and fluids surrounding the spinal cord, subsequently increasing the body's ability to heal itself, ward off disease, and reprimand inconsiderate cannonballers. Warm bamboo therapy is a rather new modality that combines the gentle kneads of Swedish massage with the application of controlled heat (via warmed bamboo and rattan) to simultaneously melt away everyday stress and stubborn summer popsicles.
