Massage therapist Renee assuages muscles with various massage-therapy services at R-n-R Therapeutic Massage. During a Swedish massage, muscles relax under the light pressure of gliding strokes and racing matchbox cars, which help stimulate circulation and relieve tension. She takes aim at tightly wound muscle fibers as she administers acupressure massages, relieving painful knots with direct pressure. A deeply soothing treatment, the relaxation massage involves slow strokes that cause some recipients to slumber and others to fly south for the winter.

Maintaining a balanced, holistic lifestyle requires a multifaceted approach to health care. With a combination of chiropractic treatments, therapeutic massages, and nutritional counseling, ChiroHealth’s team of chiropractors and massage therapists helps alleviate symptomatic pain while simultaneously helping the body heal naturally and better resist complications in the future.
Among their many ache-alleviating techniques, the office’s chiropractors regularly perform the activator method, which uses a handheld instrument to help deliver quick, precise adjustments without causing undue strain. These adjustments target misaligned vertebrae and promote healthy neurological function, restoring balance to the body’s network of organs. Complementing chiropractic adjustments, the center’s massages and laser-therapy sessions relieve joint and muscle pain traditionally caused by daily stress or nightly full-contact shadowboxing.
The Lash Lounge's founder Anna Phillips—an advanced certified eyelash-extension trainer—once traveled the nation to impart the art of semipermanent eyelash application to scores of fellow lash artists. Now, at all of Lash Lounge's locations, such artists work to ensure that every guest returns to their day-to-day activities batting fuller, darker lashes. They meticulously apply each synthetic strand to a natural lash with medical-grade glue, imbuing peepers with a customized, natural look that can last up to two months with proper care. Applying lashes of varying lengths, thicknesses, and degrees of curl, they have earned the praise of publications including Allure magazine and Women's Wear Daily.
They also strive to eliminate lengthy daily makeup applications with permanent-makeup services. After a complimentary consultation, a staff of licensed aestheticians and permanent-makeup artists precisely applies permanent eyeliner, lip color, or third eyebrows. For those who prefer makeup that washes off, Anna has concocted her own line of mineral cosmetics, brushes, and primers.
When the time came for Vickie and Victor Bennett to name their new day spa, they simply reached for an English-to-Italian dictionary. Vasaio, which means ‘potter’ in Italian, captures the Bennetts’s commitment to revealing the untapped beauty in each of their clients, much like a potter uncovers the beauty in wet clay or uncooked cookie dough. Using organic lotions, scrubs, and muds created in-house, as well as Keune Haircosmetics products imported from the Netherlands, Vasaio’s stylists, massage therapists, and nail technicians sculpt, soothe, and pamper their patrons amid a luxurious spa setting.
Dr. Laura Tinning leads Vasaio’s med-spa arm, administering and overseeing rejuvenating procedures such as microdermabrasion, chemical peels, Botox and Juvéderm injections, and laser treatments. Armed with the Cutera laser system, Dr. Tinning and her team battle nail fungus, acne, unwanted hair growth, visible veins, and the body’s internal asteroid belt.
