Before she was Wellness From Within Massage & Healing's principle therapist, Kelly Manley worked in conventional medicine at a family practice. Although traditional and holistic medical philosophies sometimes clash, Kelly is able to harness the wisdom found in both approaches to helm a practice focused on whole-body wellness. She blends her experience in traditional medicine with Eastern techniques to ease chronic pain with trigger point techniques, help mothers-to-be manage pain with pre-natal massages, and expunge stress with Swedish strokes and hot towels.

Though Kathy Vanderveen enjoyed her 18 years spent working as a beauty teacher at a local college and a specialist at high-end spas, she never stopped dreaming of opening up a shop of her own. Determined to bring her fantasy to fruition, Kathy gathered a staff of specialists and created Me,Me,Me! Manicures. There, Kathy can focus on her true passion—mani-pedis—as her staff administers professional waxing and eyelash extensions.
Kathy's spa is a tranquil cocoon of sea-green walls, where clients recline on cushy white beds, plush sofas, and overstuffed armchairs. Soft light streams in through billowy curtains, causing the silver furniture to sparkle. Throughout the space, framed pictures proclaim inspirational messages—cheerful adages that you might find crocheted on a pillow or tattooed across the bicep of an unexpectedly sensitive truck driver.
Situated in Southern China, Guilin is a picturesque snapshot of mountains and rivers so beautiful that the landscape is depicted on the back of the 20-yuan bill. The image conjures feelings of serenity and tradition, and the Li family aims to reproduce those feelings at Fuji Foot Spa. They've brought a piece of their Guilin home to Indianapolis, offering traditional foot massages and reflexology treatments.
Dark wooden floors converge with earth-toned walls in the open and airy space, which may be transformed into semiprivate havens for individuals, couples, and groups by way of wooden room dividers. The traditional treatments begin with a warm herbal footbath. Then, the specialists dissipate pain and anxiety with the soothing massage and localized pressure of reflexology. Once feet are tended to, the comfortable leather chairs fall flat, allowing clients to completely relax while their calves, upper back, and neck are pampered. Though foot massage is the Li family’s specialty, they have a team of licensed massage therapists on staff to administer full-body massages as well.
Specializing in a variety of nonsurgical and surgical beauty-bolstering procedures, the Gillian Institute for Plastic, Aesthetic, and Laser Surgery people attain aesthetic goals both big and small. The SkinTyte facial treatment uses pulsed light to deeply heat skin while cooling and protecting the entire treated surface area, stimulating collagen production and leading to a firmer, tighter skull covering. The glow-endowing treatment is effective for all skin types, including dry, oily, and stegosaurus, though most people's skins require four treatments to achieve maximum results. Immediately after your SkinTyte procedure, you can return to normal activities, be they shucking pistachios or cat nannying.
