Cheetah is an expert at viewing every client's body as a one-of-a-kind canvas and inventing custom combinations of modalities to address their aches. She even encourages her patrons to get involved in the process, inviting them to blend their own mix of essential oils, which they can take home to use on themselves, friends, or door hinges that could smell better.
In addition to Swedish and deep-tissue treatments, Cheetah administers signature TLC massages that promote lymphatic drainage. This style draws from her work with the elderly and children who have special needs, employing a gentle touch that can calm hyperactivity while soothing muscles. Her couples-massage service includes servings of chocolate-covered strawberries and champagne, whereas a Look at You massage aims to tone the skin and minimize signs of cellulite. In the interest of making each guest more comfortable, Tracey can also target her massages towards specific benefits, from increased circulation to decongested sinuses.

Linda Evans wields the scissors behind Sassy Shears at The Salons at Bella Suites, continuing the work has occupied her hands for more than 30 years. Although she snips away anywhere from 1 to 15 inches of hair on any given day—leaving clients lighter and more stylish—her signature service is color. She prefers Paul Mitchell color products for their thorough coverage, and they pair nicely with her preferred moisturizing conditioner from It's A 10. While she works, she provides clients with complimentary beverages to sip on, as well as the occasional bit of sample product to take home and experiment with by making one's pet shih tzu resemble Johnny Depp as closely as possible.

For a multi-sensory experience, any of Clarissa's services can be enhanced with stimulating aromatherapy oils.
