The waterless wash experts at Fashion Fresh absolve clothes from stain-related sins with advanced cleansing technologies. Friendly staff takes in soiled second skins at any location or drops by homes to whisk blouses ($7.43), blazers ($8.55), and business-casual spacesuits off to their cleaning facilities. Slink into a fresh-scrubbed skirt ($9.67–$7.78) or unsettle blind dates in a gleaming white lab coat ($8.25). Pseudo-suds experts also aid comforters ($27.92–$43.77) and pillowcases ($4.16) in reconnecting with their former fluffy selves.
Naples Massage Therapy's licensed, certified massage therapist Dori Stephens kneads knotted muscles using techniques that range from time-tested Swedish and deep-tissue modalities to treatments targeted to golf injuries and specific body areas. The new anti-aging bellanina facelift massage caresses facial fabric and its skeletal support beams with acupressure, lymphatic drainage, and contouring strokes for 60 minutes, and botanical products cleanse, exfoliate, and moisturize the skin until it looks young enough to get past the bouncer at the city's hottest build-a-bear workshops. A basic head, neck, shoulder, foot, and hand massage forcibly evacuates stress from the body's most frequently used extremities after its forked tail. Once annoyed scowls have been softened into blissful grins, Dori slaps some soft heat pouches onto the palms of her hands and spends the next 30 minutes warming back muscles.

A passion for healing others runs in Dr. Liwen "Lily" Heh's veins. She's the third generation in her family to study the art of acupuncture, a calling she has been practicing for more than 20 years.
