Soft strains of music mingle with the aromas of essential oils at Regeneration Centre of Beauty and Health. There, a staff of beauty and wellness specialists performs hair- and bodycare services with a wide range of traditional elixirs as well as organic products and supplements. Through massage treatments, the therapists aim to restore energy, well-being, and a sense of peace akin to frolicking in a field of marshmallows. They also perform therapeutic services such as reflexology, acupressure, and moxibustion—a traditional chinese remedy that promotes circulation through the burning of mugwort over affected areas. The team performs haircuts and styling services with Schwarzkopf organic products, and improves strands’ lustre with botanical hair and scalp therapy. Detoxification supplements and herbs are also available for purchase.
Free of parabens, dyes, and other chemicals, Pure SKN's cosmetics and skincare products are as unadulterated as fresh snowfall. That's because the company's line of blushes, lipsticks, eye shadows, and moisturizers are made exclusively from natural ingredients, such as red rooibos tea from South Africa and crushed minerals imported from Germany (though the products are actually manufactured in Michigan).
The organic nature of the products has been appealing; the line is available at retailers throughout the Midwest, and it has attracted customers to the company's services, which range from spray tanning to makeup and eyelash-extension applications. For aspiring models and people who want to produce illegal stamps with their faces on them, there's even a headshot package that includes makeup and hairstyling.
At Ferndale Relaxation Spa, massage therapists employ a holistic approach twice over, soothing the entire body with techniques from around the world. Beyond the traditional Western modalities, such as Swedish and hot stone, the indian head and neck massage calls upon ayurvedic-healing principles, and Chinese reflexology methods aim to boost the immune system during foot massages. Amid a bubbling fountain and soft music, the spa promotes relaxation with optional experiences such as rose petals scattered in candlelight or side-by-side massages for couples or presidential running mates.

Waxing treatments help clients showcase hairless bikini zones, bare underarms, and smooth legs.
Even before he became a chiropractor, Dr. Robin Roberts understood the power of a good adjustment. He played on a minor league baseball team, and before and after every game, he observed the team chiropractor keeping players healthy enough to hustle for ground balls, swat dingers, and run away from broken windows. It was enough that, once he hung up his glove, he decided to become a chiropractor himself.
Since 2003, Dr. Roberts has been administering his hands-on chiropractic techniques to professional baseball players, hockey players, and patients suffering from aches and chronic pain. Eschewing every ounce of conventional medication and invasive techniques, his non-invasive methods trigger the body's own self-healing resources to correct ailments ranging from chronic pain to migraines.
