Clients at Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa receive a completely customized service, down to the lighting and sound levels that transform treatment rooms into relaxing oases. As they tuck into the clean linens that bedeck heated tables, they divulge their chronic aches to massage therapists or their skin concerns to aestheticians. With each visit, the staff updates a client’s regimen so that a treatment remains effective in soothing aches or clean pores that are terrified of extractions.
It’s hard to believe Good Karma Salon & Retreat is staffed by only six people when considering the number of available services: hairstyling, nailcare, skincare, massages, body treatments, and waxing are all part of the collective repertoire. Within the soothing, earth-toned studio—with nature-inspired accents such as potted bamboo and green accent walls—the staff also specializes in applying makeup and accentuating the eyes via an eyelash tint, faux lashes, or faux lashes made out of fluorescent bulbs. During treatments, the staff relies on botanical products from Aveda and hair products from Pureology.
Inside a charming Victorian house, Lindsey Garger works, digging into her toolbox of shears, clippers, and professional styling products daily to give each client a look of their own.

At Clackamas Massage Rehab & Chiropractic, Doctor of Chiropractic William Parker wants his patients to live pain-free lives without having to worry about the legal mumbo-jumbo involved with getting hurt.

With that issue taken care of, Dr. Parker and his massage therapists get to work right away, calming chronic and acute pain with noninvasive spinal adjustments and massages.
Sport Clips specializes in creating a just-for-the-dudes atmosphere that’s tailor made to tickle the Y chromosome. "Men's women" stylists futz with the follicles of men and boys in a sport-themed environment decorated in a bold black, white, and red color scheme—evoking racing flags, professional sports teams, and jokes about newspapers. Your MVP haircut begins with a consultation about the look you want, followed by the precision haircut itself. Your guy-savvy stylist will then dole out a delightful scalp massage with Tea Tree shampoo. After a dollop of leave-in conditioner, you'll get to savor the warmth of a barbershop-style steamed towel and feel sports-related frustration melt away during an upper neck and shoulder massage. In between haircuts, you can come in anytime and get the back of your neck cleaned up for free, since unsightly neck stubble is known to attract the unwanted attention of poltergeists, sandworms, and debt collectors.
