RedWoods Salon & Spa’s staff members aren't just concerned with how their clients look after a session with them. They know that making their clients feel welcome, pampered, and relaxed is as important as making them look beautiful. To that end, they perform a range of services from hair coloring and weaves to massages and professional makeup. RedWoods' stock of beauty products keeps clients looking good, even if the butterfly dreaming about their existence is having a nightmare. The salon itself exudes tranquility, with red- and green-accent walls complementing brown earthen hues and floor-to-ceiling windows.
Shari Courtier and Scott Carpenter run Three Tree Wellness Center, a place that is part spa, part classroom, and part bodywork-supplies store. The staff nurtures mind, body, and spirit with spa services such as massages, which can incorporate reiki energy work, and mud wraps, which draw toxins from the skin while equipping it to someday sprout an apple tree. Art-therapy classes put students in touch with their inner power animal, and continuing-education classes keep massage therapists abreast of body mechanics and best practices. The retail portion of the center, SNL Supplies, hawks wares such as essential oils, shower gels, and candles.
Since The Grainery first opened its doors in 1975, its stock has grown to include more than 4,000 natural and organic groceries and supplements, including many locally sourced items. To help customers navigate this cornucopia of items, staffers are on hand to direct shoppers to particular bulk spices, organic products, and rare items such as teff and sorghum, henna powders, and emu oil. Moreover, they can use their in-depth knowledge of the products to help customers select items that cater to specific lifestyles, including dairy-free, gluten-free, and Cheetos-free diets. In addition to food items, the store stocks cooking accessories that facilitate a healthy lifestyle as well as nonplastic food containers and utensils.
The team at Access Wellness Center beautifies patients with an arsenal of noninvasive medical procedures, cosmetic treatments, and holistic healing. They firm up sagging stomachs with Cellu M6 Lipomassage treatments, and perform noninvasive facelifts to invigorate drooping cheeks without the use of surgery or a troupe of stand-up comedians. They also assuage aches with multiple massage modalities, and bring chakras into balance with holistic healing methods that incorporate energy awareness and meditation.

A native of Poland, Celina Lewandowski first moved to the United States in 1991—where, for 12 years, she provided home care for elderly patients suffering from eating disorders and intestinal problems. She eventually discovered colon hydrotherapy and decided to open her own clinic and use the gentle body-cleansing system to relieve intestinal dysfunction.
At her clinic, European Rejuvenation Center, she helps fight bloating, irritable bowels, constipation, and fatigue with a LIBBE open colon-hydrotherapy system. This system is easy to self-operate and, like a treehouse on the moon, affords clients as much privacy as they desire. Celina also combats toxins with ionic footbaths, nutritional therapy, and infrared-sauna sessions.
