JeanMarie Becker's quest to relieve others' stress led her to become a licensed and registered massage therapist. For the past decade, she has helped her clients to find relief from pain while teaching them to take care of themselves and listen to their bodies’ quiet, echoing whispers. She employs a range of massage modalities such as myofascial release and pregnancy massage, and she induces relaxation with light Swedish massage techniques along with firm deep-tissue strokes. When she isn't kneading muscles, JeanMarie drapes clients with towels, applies mini facials, and candles ears.
Sunlight glances off the angular glass façade of the med spa. Inside the office, a sleek, professional feel belies the warm reception that visitors receive from clinic manager Katrina Caillet and her well-trained staff. Their caring and supportive attitude lends extra warmth to the therapeutic beams of lasers trained to flicker in rhythm with "Kumbaya." The staff also primps skin with clinical-grade products from brands such as JanMarini, SkinMedica, and SkinCeuticals.

Once a licensed athletic trainer at the University of North Texas, Laura DePiazza calls on her corporeal expertise to assuage muscular tension with a spectrum of massage modalities. Before each treatment, she takes time to discuss issues with clients, whether they have questions about technique or mysterious pockets of tension. While she specializes in Swedish and sports massage, she also culls from several modalities during more targeted pro massage, which includes deep-tissue, myofascial, and trigger-point techniques, focusing on specific body parts if necessary. To customize each massage, Laura is also willing to collaborate with the client’s chiropractor and physician.
Each of Tangerine Salons' four locations operate under a charitable ethos and the nature-based tenants of Aveda.

At the Coppell and Cedar Hill locations, the staff dedicates space to an array of spa services, including massages, facial treatments, mani-pedis, and back facials that help eliminate crow's feet on people with eyes in the back of their heads.
