The staff at Thomas Anderson & Associates strives to make clients smile—and not just during their before-and-after pictures. Massage chairs, flat-screen TVs, and a wide selection of movies and music help make visits to the office as relaxing as a tumbler of whiskey enjoyed in one's very own pit of quicksand. Technicians apply a gentle touch when performing exams, x-rays, and other general-dentistry procedures. Cosmetic services—including teeth whitening and Invisalign—remain as noninvasive as possible.
The walls are lavender. The doors are lavender. The smell might even be lavender. But here's the thing—Lavenders Nail & Tanning Studio is serious about the entire spectrum of colors, from bronzed skin tones to kaleidoscopically vivid nail polishes. Eight tanning beds install fresh-from-the-space-station glows with UV-light systems, while airbrush artists coat clients form head-to-toe without harsh aftereffects. Optional red-light therapy beds stimulate collagen to keep skin youthful by diminishing sun spots, hyperpigmentation, and other blemishes. Nearby, nail techs can coat nails in solid colors, polka-dot patterns, or collages that feature glitter and decals. However classic or daring clients want their nails to look, the savvy staff at Lavenders listens closely and delivers artful results.
Although some may think the eyes, the hands, or the kneecaps are the most important parts of the body, Arnica Muscle & Fitness believes muscles are actually the most vital. With the motto “muscles move us,” the business tends to muscles through therapeutic massage, personal training, and fitness classes. Circuit training and yogilates—a hybrid yoga-Pilates class—put muscles through the ringer before a licensed massage therapist quells soreness and tension with targeted pressure, soothing strokes, and heated stones.
