John Mitchell’s many certifications allow him to perform massages, personal training sessions, CPR, as first aid, as well as combat bloodborne pathogens when vampires get reckless. John dispenses most of those skills at Advanced Bodyworks, where clients recline during relaxing massages and stay upright during calorie-burning workouts.

At the recently opened Christopher Brian Salon, a certified master colorist oversees cranial transformations with haircuts and highlights, and a beauty professional smoothes facial terrains with an arsenal of waxing services. A wash rids hair of oil before a professional mane mowing molds tresses into a face-framing style. Then a styled blow-dry keeps styles from getting soggy, and a gloss treatment makes hair shine brighter than a disco ball covered in crisco. Instead of the wash and gloss treatment, patrons may opt to stripe select strands in their choice of shade with a partial foil highlight. Alternatively, clients can banish unwanted whiskers from upper-lips and eyebrows with three full visage waxes, which may be redeemed over multiple visits to stunt the growth of future facial forests.

Body Image Optimization's aestheticians pamper fading physiques with a bevy of technologically advanced beautifying procedures.

Tightening technicians vacuum and massage skin as they employ an amalgamation of bipolar radiofrequency and infrared light energy. The silkening savants suggest six shaping sessions to gradually smooth skin and reduce cellulite, until patrons are as smooth and alluring as a dolphin at a masked ball.

When Barbara L. Baaden underwent what doctors said was life-altering eye surgery, she drew upon her skills in massage therapy, hypnotherapy, homeopathy, and aromatherapy to ease her discomfort. Now, when she's not applying her medical massage skills to fellow eye surgery patients, she uses those techniques to help heal clients at Body by Baaden. The licensed massage therapist incorporates homeopathic and essential oils into seven varieties of massage, including shiatsu and myofascial styles. She also enriches bodies with skin-soothing aromatherapies and her natural Flawless Facial, whose botanical oils help prevent wrinkles and brighten complexions more effectively than attaching a strobe light to your forehead. Barbara also ministers to inner wellness, stimulating bodies' healing responses during homeopathic sessions and plumbing the subconscious during hypnotherapy sessions that rid patients of addictions and phobias.

Revive’s talented team of licensed massage therapists calls upon extensive educational backgrounds and experience coddling muscles to soothe away each client’s stress and aches. Massage modalities target ailments from anxiety and depression to the injuries and stiff muscles that result from a battle with Medusa. Swedish massage's long, gliding strokes assuage pains inside and out, whereas deep-tissue massage's targeted pressures lift out knots. Anatomical menders also focus on holistic healing during reflexology visits, where pressure in the hands and feet travels through the body's interconnected pathways to help improve the health of organs. Myofascial release stretches out cramped soft tissue to take pressure off of nerves and blood vessels, and shiatsu massage targets pressure points to unclog the body's energy meridians in time for a roller derby or marathon of speed-reading.:
