Drawing on her medical background, Marlene Fortney transmits youthful brightness back into clients' features with skin-refining treatments in an intimate spa setting, located inside A Little Indulgence Day Spa. Her spa service menu centers on the face in a range of treatments that incorporate creams rich in antioxidants, deep-cleansing ultrasound rays, and enzyme exfoliants that gently whisk away roughened façades like a brick-wall repossession. For more intense skin restructuring, Marlene can draw on a retinue of high-powered treatments, such as glycolic-acid peels or diamond-tip microdermabrasion treatments that work to unveil smooth complexions from beneath dull skin cells. The specialist also brandishes waxing treatments that span from faces to feet to rid bodies of unwanted hair or sculpt brows into arches sharp enough to pop double-entendres in midair.
Lynne Wooddy has worked as a massage therapist for more than 25 years, using the power of strong strokes and gentle touches to un-knot tense muscles and relax stressed shoulders.

When she massages a client today, she combines her years of experience with what she's learned about kinesiology and anatomy to create a completely customized treatment.
The stylists at A Little Indulgence Salon sculpt hair into works of head art, cutting strands with shears sharpened on years of know-how. After scuttling split ends, adding layers, and picking out burs, mane tamers bathe head threads in shampoos from lines such as Dermalogica or Enjoy Professional Hair Care. Half or full highlights then deepen looks by enhancing the dimension of freshly lopped locks. Service concludes as hair undergoes a finishing styling that reflects its grower’s personality or favorite Dr. Seuss character. While undergoing scalp metamorphosis, clients can relax within the studio’s décor of stucco walls, murals of palm trees and archways, and leopard-print upholstery.

Dr. Gregory Stafford had tried nearly everything. After suffering from back pain for several years, he unsuccessfully attempted to fix his pain with drugs and spinal injections, stopping short of surgery. Instead, and the behest of his wife, he went to a chiropractor. The pain quickly dissolved and changed his life so dramatically that he quit his job at a pharmaceutical rep and went back to school to become a chiropractor.
Now at the helm of his own clinic, he fixes his patients vertebra by vertebra with consultations and digital x-rays that unearth the cause of pain. Alleviating aches and strengthening bodies is a number of services including massages, adjustments, and exercises such as pushups with an exercise ball or bench-pressing Dr. Stafford.
