Inspired by time spent in Germany, where massage plays an integral role in healthcare, licensed practical nurse and massage therapist Leisa Leber has made it her mission to promote wellness with the healing power of touch. Leber has used massage to help both nursing patients and family members, and went on to study Swedish, neuromuscular, and deep-tissue modalities at the Colorado Institute of Massage Therapy. She continued her training at Upledger Institute International, adding lymphatic drainage and craniosacral therapy to her manual repertoire. To stay informed, Leber maintains membership with the Associated Bodywork and Massage Professionals and the International Association of Healthcare Practitioners, having learned the elaborate, reflexology-based secret handshake required for participation.
Leber enhances the many benefits of treatment with soft music, paraben-free aromatherapy oils, or soothing paraffin wax. Entrance ramps accommodate walkers or wheelchairs, and a walking path next to the studio invites patrons to explore the tranquility of nature with newly limber muscles.
Since 1996, Adrienne Mohn has provided pain relief and relaxation as a certified massage therapist. Her specialties range from traditional deep tissue, Swedish, and head-and-face massages, to less pervasive modalities, including French aromatherapy and energy bodywork to balance chakras drawn from Native American and Hawaiian culture. As for the benefits of her treatments, there are many, including decreased anxiety, boosted energy levels, reduced fatigue, and improved joint flexibility.
Shear Perfection Salon & Spa invites guests to enjoy relaxing services that cover nearly every facet of beauty. As stylists sculpt manes with haircuts and permanent waves, nail techs pamper paws with mani-pedis that include a skin-softening scrub, soothing massage, and a reading of each toe's favorite bedtime story. Armed with both a standup tanning bed and spray-on techniques, the salon helps patrons conquer pallid complexions and complement the natural glow produced by facials and pore-purifying microdermabrasion. Those looking to add a touch of glamour to an already polished exterior can opt for eyelash extensions or ask about the salon's ear-piercing services, while those who prefer to leave the Mediterranean-inspired confines feeling lighter than when they came can shed stress under the relaxing ministrations of a Swedish or cellulite-reducing massage.

Trend Setters Hair Salon's owner and captain stylist, Jen Palmer, calls on more than 18 years of experience and specialization in cuts and coloring as she leads her staff. The team's comprehensive menu runs the gamut from keratin treatments and perms to facial waxing. In time slots doled out by appointment only, they discipline rowdy locks with products from Moroccanoil and Nioxin and brighten nails with artful french tips or resilient shellac gel that guards against chipping so that clients don't have to wear oven mitts to work. Surrounding the stylist's beautification chairs, muted, green walls hung with photos of flora and fauna craft a woodland-like environment.
