Dr. Steve Abercrombie’s life-long passion for athletics earned him several injuries that landed him in the chiropractor's office time and again. After one such injury left him considering surgery, the chiropractor took the time to convince Dr. Abercrombie to try a more holistic approach to recovery: meaning letting his body heal itself—with time and regular chiropractic treatment—instead of relying on pain medication or invasive procedures. It was a conversation that changed Abercrombie's life and, ultimately, his profession. Now a chiropractor himself, he works at Physique Wellness alongside Dr. Haesung Park, an expert in Active Release treatments that restore spinal range of motion and proper posture.
Owner Toni Moore maintains a comfortable, homey salon-spa environment so that her clients can truly relax while being pampered. Swathed in earth tones, her beauty emporium boasts plush pink couches, framed artwork, and large windows, as well as verdant plants that dot the space with fresh green hues and occasionally demand new haircuts. Moore and her staff treat their clients to services for the whole body, from salon sessions in the form of haircuts, hair color, and relaxers to spa treatments such as facials and massages.
Beauology's owner Sridevi Rejeti helms a team of beauty specialists, who style strands, groom nails, remove unwanted hair, and apply makeup and henna to skin. Like a first date, each appointment begins with a consultation to discuss the client's requirements, and staffers then create a service to accommodate individual needs. Salon chairs rest in front of tall mirrors where clients watch new hairstyles form with the snips of scissors or brows retreat with the twist of a cotton thread. Neon pillows pop from the black background of a sleek leather couch stretched out behind pedicure tubs, and separate treatment rooms soothe clients with tranquil greens or blues and organic décor.
