In a private treatment room at The Spa at 22 Changes?a 5,000 square-foot salon and spa retreat?a massage therapist kneads, rolls, and taps bamboo sticks across a client's back during a bamboo massage, relieving tension and checking to see which parts of the spine work best as a xylophone. Among other soothing services, infrared-sauna treatments help guests detoxify, ease stress and pain, and boost circulation. The aestheticians on staff perform waxing and facials, while manicures, pedicures, and hair services are also available.
Lindsay Le puts training at Seattle's Permanent Cosmetics School, over 10 years of permanent makeup experience, and a steady hand to use to beautify faces and enhance features. At Permanent Make-Up & Nail Land, which she has owned for over 14 years, she uses brand-new supplies to maintain sanitation during each permanent-makeup application, and topical anesthetics numb flesh before Le deposits pigments into the skin. The process can even out discolored complexions, enhance eyes and eyebrows, or increase the thickness of lips to leave them beautiful.
Licensed Aesthetician, Professional Makeup Artist, and Permanent Makeup Technician Monica McKay accentuates facial features with eyebrow makeup, eyeliner, and lip color. In addition, Monica helps gussy up individuals for special occasions. Prior to each procedure, Monica meets with clients during a free consultation to obtain a clear idea of personal needs and expected outcomes. Eyeliner and lash-line enhancements provide eyelashes with either a subtle or smudgy base, and eyebrow treatments fill in thin or missing eyebrows. Permanent Makeup shortens morning pampering routines for clients so they can spend more time sleeping in or writing sonnets using leftover eyeliner pencils.
A bright red couch, delicate calla lilies, and a warm abstract painting are the first things that greet you when you enter Creative Nails.

In addition to nails, the staff here also tend to skin with facials that remove dirt, dead skin, and stubborn stick-on beards, as well as waxing services that strip away unwanted stubble.
Patti Martin adds flair to her clients’ eyelids, brows, and lips by using the SofTap hand method of applying permanent makeup. This treatment is a more comfortable alternative to the machine method, and Patti also liberally slathers numbing cream on the skin to ensure each procedure is practically pain-free. She creates these long-lasting, smudge-proof looks at her two Wake Up Beautiful locations (in Vancouver and Silverdale), the names of which are an obvious nod to the fact that patrons will no longer have to apply makeup every morning in front of a bathroom mirror or still pond.
