Reflexology Rocks’ Wendy Girl knows exactly which buttons to push. Skilled in a range of practices—from hand and foot therapy to kinesiology—the well-rounded holistic healer swaddles aching feet in organic foot creams, as she applies gentle pressure to specific nerve endings. The massage technique can stir relaxation and relief throughout the body, while also promoting internal well-being. Aside from treating feet, Wendy also works her magic on visages with face-reflexology sessions that relieve muscles sore from smiling at cardboard kitten cutouts for days on end.
The Ada Rios team only uses the best and most natural ingredients they can find to whisk and mix their face and body products. Whether picking up a pomegranate salt scrub or a shea butter- and chamomile-laced anti-wrinkle night cream, customers can rest assured products are free from harsh chemicals and other less-than-natural ingredients.
After taking the time to curate ingredients, develop effective recipes, and concoct their potions, the Ada Rios team applies its discerning standard of quality to its in-store spa services, too. These include organic facials, massage therapy, Reiki treatments, and nail services. Of course, aestheticians only use Ada Rios products during these treatments, swaddling clients in natural and earth-oriented goodness from head to toe.
As someone who has always been in touch with the intangible elements of health, Tara Cornish is well suited to a career in reflexology and energy. She brings that gestalt mindset to bear when kneading pressure points on the hands and feet in an effort to address depression and anxiety or bolster the function of individual organs. Training in reiki, a form of gentle-touch therapy, prepares her to combat a range of maladies by channeling energy said by practitioners to run through the body and universe. Tara also serves as a doula, or labor helper, to expectant mothers, coaching them through the birthing process and explaining why every baby has to be named Cranston.
Vera Reed, a licensed massage therapist, is the wellness equivalent of a one-stop shop. In addition to mastering shiatsu, lymphatic drainage, energy balancing, reflexology, and other techniques over the past decade, she’s dived into dietary and herbal studies. This makes it possible for her to provide holistic treatments for the whole body, rather than just one system or two really small toes.
In addition to caring for her patients with organic products, Vera and the staff of Body Nutrients also take care of the planet. Their efforts have resulted in the offset of nearly 2,000,000 pounds of CO2, over 16,000 pounds of waste kept from landfills, and the planting of over 1,000 trees.
With a service menu that lists everything from foot reflexology to chemical peels, its clear that Eyelash Extensions and More lives up to the "And More" part of its name.

As owner of Apple Rehab, Lisa Wilson-Foley has a simple goal: to stretch the concept of therapy. She and her staff of expert therapists offer wellness services ranging from physical, occupational, and speech therapy to nutritional counseling. Clients may request a restorative facial treatment, or retreat to a private room for soothing deep-tissue bodywork from Apple Rehab’s licensed massage therapist.
