Head & Sole revitalizes the entire body, top to bottom, through services ranging from microdermabrasion facials to foot massages. Within a relaxing environment, aestheticians treat skin ailments such as wrinkles, acne, or rosacea, though the spa's specialty lies in treating our first point of contact to the earth—the feet. During reflexology treatments, massage therapists help ease tension in the body by focusing on specific points on the soles that correspond with specific organs, tissue, and body parts. Other times, they simply focus on reducing pain and tension in the foot itself, such as when athletes strain their heels after running a marathon or standing on a bed of coals.
Aches and pains evaporate as the hands of licensed massage therapist LeAnn McDonald sweep over muscles for Swedish or firm-pressure massages. While noses drink in aromatherapy through their nostril-mouths, LeAnn's targeted kneading unravels the knots in torsos that form when the topsail attached to the spine gets tangled in the rigging near the ribs. Clients may also request LeAnne's mobile spray-tanning services for off-site bronzing.

She says that the best compliment she's ever received from a client is one that comes up again and again—a repeat visit. "It tells me that I've done a good job and provided excellent service," she says.
In addition to massage, she and her fellow staffers also provide spa services, including fat-melting body wraps and mind-soothing aromatherapy.

My Make-Up Rocks's cosmetic connoisseurs, who are also certified airbrush technicians, and hairstylists regularly attend seminars to develop the talent that earned them the Bride's Choice Award from Wedding Wire/Martha Stewart Weddings in 2011 and 2012. Constantly honing their craft equips these cosmetologists with the skills needed to expertly make over imaginary friends, brides, boudoir-photography subjects, and faces seen in magazines and TV broadcasts. Though the makeup mavens and locksmiths have all worked with stylists and makeup artists to the stars, visage-vivifiers offer one-on-one tutorials that that teach even the least experienced makeup wearer how to use her own products.
