Deep-seated stresses dissipate at the hands of Limback Wellness Center's certified massage therapists. The center specializes in hot-stone and hot-towel massages, which employ penetrating heat and soothing circular motions to boost circulation, oxygenate muscles, and alleviate the lingering stiffness that comes from serving as the spring festival’s Maypole. Aside from their popular heated modalities, the team of male and female massage therapists treats clients to gentle relaxation massages and more focused deep-tissue work.
When runner Nolan Lee hurt himself during a track and field event, a licensed massage therapist descended from the stands to come to his aid. After the therapist guided Nolan through stretches and massage, he was awestruck to be feeling relief so immediately without wrapping his legs in hot pancakes. He enrolled in massage school and soon after graduation opened V.I.P Massage. Now into his sixth year as a massage therapist, Nolan uses an athlete's understanding of muscle pain and soreness to inform his sessions, whether the client wants the soothing strokes of Swedish massage or the more in-depth ministrations of deep-tissue therapy. Nolan especially takes pride in working on clients' back, neck, and shoulders.

Gauzy curtains line the path to the cream-colored room where licensed massage therapist Chelsea Oglesby kneads skin and soothes aches.

Clients can also soothe stressed feet with the Sweet Treat, which includes a hot soak and a salt-and-sugar scrub.

Physician-owned and operated, Healthy Image Physicians reverts visages to more youthful appearances using quick, noninvasive techniques. During a 10-minute Botox treatment, technicians inject a specially formulated serum to undo frown lines by blocking nerve impulses around wrinkled foreheads, smoothing between-brow mountain ranges into level, prairie-like skinscapes. The FDA-approved injection delivers results within a few days without the need for recovery or downtime, and its effects can last for up to four months. Juvéderm XC ($500–$575 per syringe, treatments usually require one to four syringes) fills in facial folds around the mouth and nose with a smooth, consistent gel treated with hydrating hyaluronic acid, which promotes a fresh, vibrant complexion and eschews the need to steam press stubborn crow’s feet.
