Honey and raw silk aren’t two things normally associated with a spa, but at Beauty Within, they’re key components to reaching beauty and relaxation. Honey-dew facials moisturize and gently exfoliate the skin, thanks to honey’s alpha-hydroxy acids and humectants. And raw silk comes to play during the garshana massage, an ancient massage technique from India. The massage therapist wears special gloves made of raw silk and other fibers that help boost circulation and oxygen flow. Other services at Beauty Within include slimming body wraps and body sculpting.

At Fit Slim of Michigan, the team’s preferred weight-loss tool is light.
