For aesthetician Vicki, clear skin isn't just about outer beauty—it's also about inner confidence. At Skin by Vicki, her goal is to help clients determine what they want for their skin, at which point she can help them overcome acne, signs of age, or other issues with custom skincare regimens. She uses products derived from fruits and plants in all of her treatments, which range from deluxe facials with chemical peels to mini facials designed to maintain skin from week to week.
Stretch Zone mixes up humdrum fitness regimes with a new type of workout, one that can enhance physical performance, muscle symmetry, and flexibility. It consists of table stretching—but not the kind that you're probably familiar with. By working with the autonomic nervous system, Stretch Zone practitioners take muscle extension to a whole new level. Atop their specially designed tables, comfortable straps systematically position, stabilize, and isolate the parts of the body that are not being stretched. This allows the stretched muscle—and the person on the table—to completely relax, extending further than the central nervous system would normally permit. Besides helping rejuvenate and invigorate the whole body, the sessions can also alleviate rheumatic pain for everyone from seniors to adults.
The licensed massage and cranial-sacral therapists of Healing Hands Medical Massage administer specialized manual therapies in order to ease physical pain and promote healthy minds. Through gentle manipulations of the neck and skull, the therapists correct restrictions and imbalances in the cranial-sacral system, striving to relieve chronic aches?such as those associated with migraines or fibromyalgia?and emotional stress. During reflexology treatments, they stimulate specific pressure points located on the feet, each area tied to a larger bodily system. The sessions promote increased relaxation and are ideal for clients who never want to take off their Hulk costumes. Those willing to expose their real back muscles can enjoy Swedish, deep-tissue, prenatal, or hot-stone massages. Healing Hands Medical Massage also provides corporate services such as onsite chair massages and acupuncture.

Michelle Ann's athletic background helped her appreciate the physical challenge of yoga when she first discovered it. After training with Shri Yogi Hari at the Sampoorna Yoga Ashram, she went on to teach classes at parks, beaches, and inside the studio. In addition to creative vinyasa flow sequences, Michelle teaches hatha yoga. A portmanteau that combines the Hindi words for sun and moon, hatha aims to balance contrasting concepts such as "effort" and "surrender," or "healthy" and "tastes good." Michelle also blends vinyasa yoga and Pilates techniques to tone muscles and increase flexibility.
Using all-natural gels and fully customized tooth trays, Pro Smile Teeth Whitening brings professional-caliber dental treatments to homes across the country. After molding the kit to their own teeth?a process that takes just over a minute?customers fill the tray with gel and start their smile-brightening journey. Enhanced with an optional LED treatment, the whole procedure takes about 30 to 60 minutes a day for 7 to 14 days, and results last up to six months with regular brushing. The trays retain their shape permanently, so unless customers lose them or sprout a set of tusks, they can repeat the whitening process as often as necessary by ordering gel refills.
