In the midst of rustic woods, there sits a three-story building. Upon opening its front door, visitors unleash a gentle wave of aromatherapy scents and warm air. They step inside, where therapists lead them past wood accents and into private treatment rooms. World of Serenity’s spa atmosphere recalls the calm of the surrounding wilderness, and inside its walls, therapists adopt a holistic approach; they educate guests in wellness basics, such as why humans don’t eat sand, and perform a range of customized spa services. They soften faces, deep-cleanse pores, and slough of dead cells during customized facials; sometimes scouring or soothing the skin with an additional enzyme deep cleanse, warm stones, or anti-aging collagen. They also ease muscle tension with six massage modalities such as deep tissue, warm stone, and reflexology; and scrub clients from head to toe using salt and sugar rubs, and wraps made from natural dead sea mud or Paradisius—a blend of ground fruit and flower extracts.

It isn't every day that a licensed massage therapist gets to work during a rock concert. Jasmine McKenzie had just that opportunity when she gave much-needed kneads to performing artists and crew members at the Rock on the Range music festival. She's also accustomed to the refined ambiance at the Scioto Country Club, where she previously practiced techniques ranging from deep-tissue and hot-stone massage to neuromuscular therapy and pregnancy massage.
Between her experience and education?a bachelor's degree in health and wellness and training at the Cleveland Institute of Medical Massage?Jasmine's talents have brought her many unique client experiences. Now at her own practice, she continues to wield her massage talents against ailments such as back pain and injuries caused by athletic exertion or fist bumps that have gone horribly wrong.
As a child, Michael Cremar would watch, rapt, as his mother––a hairstylist of 28 years––enhanced a person’s natural beauty using nothing more than a pair of scissors and a little creativity. Inspired by his mom's magical touch, Cremar decided to follow in her footsteps, leading him to undergo rigorous training at the Aveda Institute, where he earned his cosmetology license. Today, he performs his own small miracles inside Shear Beauty, making dead ends disappear with a simple flick of his wrist and transforming frizzy, rebellious locks into smooth, straight strands with keratin treatments. Not content to limit his styling expertise to hair, he also offers waxing services to leave skin looking smooth and soft, as well as manicures and pedicures to soothe digits left stressed after a long week of typing, texting, or scratching the backs of itchy statues.
