Between her passion for massage and her gregarious personality, Kate Heriot has much to share in the way of healing. That’s why she founded MyMassage, where she kneads away knots and encourages her trained staff to expand their already considerable muscle-mending repertoires with new techniques. Ask Kate about the benefits of massage therapy and she will likely expound at length on its ability to ease tension from working long days at the office and heal muscles injured while carrying one’s boss to and from the bathroom.

At this Aveda hair salon and spa, the beauty specialists pamper and beautify their guests with gentle, plant-based products for hair and skin.

The treatment nurtures skin with warm seaweed masques, paraffin dips, and massages before refreshing nails with color or French styles.
Steve Randleman appreciates the beauty of women. So much, in fact, that he's devoted more than three decades of his life to enhancing their beauty as a hairstylist. After finishing barber school and spending about 10 years working at different salons, Steve assembled a team of stylists, massage therapists, aestheticians, and nail professionals, and opened Strands Salon & Spa in 1991. To this day, clients—some of whom have been going to Steve for more than 30 years—frequent the salon and spa for an array of hairstyling and skincare services fueled by products from Redken and Dermalogica. In 2010, Steve moved Strands Salon & Spa to a new location renovated with seven styling stations, two spa rooms, exposed-ventilation ceilings, and a concrete floor that looks like leather but tastes like concrete.

After discussing your back's particular bothers with a friendly therapist, you'll lie peacefully on a bed of clean sheets heated by a warming blanket. One of Selah's therapists signs a war treaty with tight muscles, deploys troops of Swedish strokes, and drops bombs of pressure to leave bodily tissues content. Believing it important to pause life for a moment of healing meditation, Selah focuses on helping customers relax, reduce stress, and improve posture and circulation with its Swedish massages.
