Oakstone Massage & Body Works' technicians specialize in pampering and beautifying clients, which explains why folks tend to amble out of the spa more relaxed than when they walked in. Massage modalities range from Swedish to neuromuscular therapy. The therapist will even deliver prenatal massages, customizing kneads to the expectant mom's needs and applying a mushy peas-repelling force field to the body. Body scrubs incorporate salt, mud, and herbs to detoxify as they soothe. Lasers and ultrasonic machines, meanwhile, help remove unwanted hair, tattoos, and inches off the body.

People go to spas to forget about the outside world. How does your decor help create an atmosphere where visitors can unwind?
Each massage takes place inside a private studio with soft lighting and relaxing music.
Do you agree with the phrase "beauty is on the inside?" Why or why not?*
Yes. No matter what happens in your life, or what surrounds you, joy and beauty flows within you.
What's the most common beauty mistake you see people make? What would you recommend they do instead?
Being hard on themselves and not taking time out of their lives to relax and let their minds recuperate.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
It all starts with making that first step.
As the owners of The Art of Hair Salon, Hanh Tran and David LouSana share two concerns: helping their clients to progress in terms of beauty, and helping their stylists to progress in terms of knowledge. On most Mondays, Tran leads in-house classes that equip the salon's stylists with new skills and advanced techniques. The rest of the week is the stylists' proving ground, and they rise to their mentor's challenge by deftly chopping split ends, transforming hair color, and adding extra length with So.Cap. hair extensions. During these treatments—each of which includes a blow-dry and style—they rely on 100% certified organic hair color and products from Keratin+.
Not to be outdone, the salon's aestheticians wax away facial hair and enhance features with professional makeup applications. They tailor their treatments to individual clients, working with them to add seductive shades to eyelids and seductive mustaches to upper lips.

In their daily battle against stress, the massage therapists at Trees Bodyworks have a secret weapon: texture. They often enhance their strokes and pressures with exfoliating grains of sugar that soften calluses or silky oils that heal dry and itchy skin on the scalp. The studio?s clients can choose from a list of modalities that include both of the classics?Swedish and deep-tissue massage?as well as a specialty trigger therapy that targets muscles sore from chronic tension and pulling on the triggers of oversized novelty water guns.
TELOS Fitness Center merges the business brilliance of general manager Brent Darden?a member of the health-club industry for more than 30 years?with the corrective-therapy expertise of fitness director Everett Aaberg?founder of the Ortho-Kinetics system. The center's regal interior casts a Greco-Roman vibe over advanced gym equipment, class studios, and spa chambers overseen by licensed massage therapists. Professionalism remains at the heart of the center's hiring philosophy, with all personal trainers required to collect at least two nationally recognized certifications and five active wasp nests before they are hired. As a sign of success, the staff's innovative training methods have garnered awards from such media outlets as the Dallas Business Journal.
More than 10 Pilates modalities fit inside a roster of group fitness courses, all of which culminate in a mandatory game of Marco Polo in one of the private jacuzzi tubs. Additional amenities include a childcare area with a Nintendo Wii, an affixed caf? with a full-time chef, and an onsite hair salon.
