Groomingdale's of Columbia?s certified groomers treat pooches of all breeds and sizes to thorough baths and grooming sessions and have done so for the past 18 years. These professional canine cleaners meticulously tidy up Fidos and Fifis, washing away grime accumulated during days spent building and immediately destroying sand castles. During baths and the more involved grooming sessions, dogs relax as fur is brushed, nails are trimmed, and ears are cleaned. After scrub downs, a snazzy bandana adds a bit of flair to your pet?s birthday suit. Four-legged companions who opt for grooming will also procure a new coiffure and a trimming around the face and feet, making it easier to wear glasses and/or cowboy boots.

When clients partake of mild hyperbaric oxygen therapy (mHBOT) at Simply Oxygen, they are flooding their lungs with air that is close to 100% oxygen. This concentrated quaff is thought to speed healing and promote detoxification, in addition to boosting energy levels and easing chronic aches. Clients breathe in the air's healing powers from within a soft, tube-like chamber that comes fully appointed with blankets and pillows to help them relax or pretend they're at space camp.
Names matter to the massage therapists who helm fuse Massage Therapy. They strive to remember each client's name and to infuse their studio's moniker with meaning as well. When naming fuse, they intertwined two relaxing concepts. The first revolves around the word's English definition: to blend together by melting. The second, drawn from its Japanese meaning, adds the idea of sharing one's gifts. The therapists illustrate both definitions during massages tailored to clients' needs and pressure preferences. Stress and tension melt away as they lavish tender sinews with soothing strokes and gentle friction. During hot-stone massages, heated basalt stones help dissolve muscle knots. The studio also offers skin-smoothing services, such as foot refreshers and body scrubs, and four-handed massages performed by two attentive therapists rather than one semidistracted octopus.
"We use the best soaps, solvents and equipment available to the industry. We do not take short cuts," Tripp Penninger told Columbia Metropolitan in 2011, one year after the magazine's readers voted Tripp's Fine Cleaners as the best dry cleaners in Columbia. Grandson of the couple that founded the business in 1987, Tripp and his staff of nearly 100 employees have earned their prestige; as Sanitone-certified master dry cleaners, they've carefully cleaned thousands of garments and have been trusted with preserving the wedding gowns of brides in South Carolina and beyond.
They clean regular laundry with low-temperature water, ensuring that nothing shrinks or becomes misshapen, and they use special procedures for high-end garments, making sure to wine and dine Chanel suits before removing wine or dinner stains. Tripp’s seamstresses are on hand to remedy ill-fitting garments, usually returning alterations in about three days. The staff picks up and drops off items free of charge in specified areas and offers complimentary seasonal storage with the purchase of cleaning.
