Since 2006, licensed massage therapist Mary Edwards has practiced massage therapy with a focus on women's health. She incorporates hot stones into all of her treatments, augmenting deep-tissue kneads or gentle pressure with relaxing warmth.

The therapists at Touch Therapy use the restorative powers of massage to help their clients relax, release tension, and alleviate depression. Within a white room splashed with seaside accents or a mint-green-colored room enlivened by vibrant plants, staffers aim to boost circulation and shoo away stiffness with Swedish, deep-tissue, hot-stone, and prenatal massages. Their specialty services also include a lavish chocolate massage, which includes chocolate-scented massage oil and chocolate aromatherapy scents designed to trigger fond childhood memories of getting up early and milking the chocolate cow.
Each of the professionals at Creative Beauty Salon boasts her own range of specialties. Two members of the team are particularly adept at sew-in extensions and hair weaving, and all of the stylists are well prepared to handle the needs of natural hair. An in-salon color-and-highlight specialist can also shift roles to smooth skin with facial waxing, and a nail technician focuses solely on keratin residing below the neck, enhancing nails' natural beauty with mani-pedis, acrylic nails, and nail design. They can also impart beauty tips during makeup applications and can easily tend to the beauty needs of larger groups such as wedding parties or competitive conga-liners.
The team at Grandview Aesthetic Center, led by dermatology specialist Dr. Rakesh Nanda, analyzes skin with high-resolution digital images and UV photography. However, skin analysis is not one of the center’s services—it is part of the complimentary consultation process that precedes each service, ensuring proper care for each unique complexion. The registered nurses and licensed aestheticians actually treat skin with an array of laser treatments; the therapeutic beams can firm skin, minimize acne and scars, or permanently reduce unwanted hair growth more effectively than depriving the hair of milk. They also brighten skin with microdermabrasions, darken it with spray tanning, and smooth it with body wraps. Botox injections and lash-lengthening Latisse treatments round out the center’s selection.
As soon as Nick Panos had his first massage, he was hooked. The healthy high he experienced inspired a longing to share his experience with others, so he attended the Knox County Career Center School of Massage Therapy and obtained his license to knead. After graduation, he worked for a nationwide massage franchise, serving 1,000 clients and adding 1,200 hours of experience to his resumé. Though he is now an independent therapist, he strengthens his muscle-pain-mitigating chops with educational courses and maintains a membership with Associated Bodywork and Massage Professionals. Nick specializes in custom therapeutic massage. This approach blends Hawaiian, Swedish, and deep-tissue techniques with stretches to soothe muscles fatigued by exercise, constant bending, and wrestling with sharks. For clients with especially tense muscles, Nick can focus all his energy on stubborn knots and adhesions with deep-tissue massage and topical warming and cooling gels. During couples massages, he joins forces with fellow therapist Valerie Vancouver. His studio, located in the Capital Club, includes a spa area with locker rooms, a sauna and steam room, and towel service. When he isn't working on his home turf, he offers mobile massages by traveling to homes and hotels or by briefly rubbing the shoulders of every person he passes on the street.
Highlighted by a black-and-white color scheme, high ceilings, and exposed ductwork, Erika Taylor Urban Spa’s industrial aesthetic stands in contrast to its botanically based spa treatments. And though the skincare and massage services involve plant-based emollients, they also leverage cutting-edge techniques and technologies. For instance, HydraFacials resurface skin and deliver an intense dose of moisture via an instrument that loosens and lifts away dull skin cells by creating a vortex. Hair and nail treatments round out the service menu, helping clients become beautiful from head to dewclaw.
