Knockouts Haircuts for Men amps up the classic barbershop experience with a lavish, sports-themed approach to men's styling that has been featured on Today and CNBC's The Big Idea with Donny Deutsch. At a still-growing number of locations throughout the country, the company's all-female staff of stylists quarterbacks a full playbook of services ranging from bare-essential to spa-worthy. First and foremost, they clip shaggy locks, but they also administer facials, manicures, massages, and waxes. Complimentary beverages are included with every visit, giving patrons something to sip on while watching a sports game on TV or contemplating how they would fend off a lion using just a comb.
Medical director Dr. David Grant hung up his scalpel after nearly 39 years as a plastic surgeon and now devotes his attention to noninvasive techniques of skin conditioning and repair that allow him to take what he feels is a more comprehensive approach to anti-aging. He and his team at Laser Sculpting Center blast away unwanted fat and body hair with an arsenal of lasers and shoo away wrinkles and signs of aging with chemical peels and microdermabrasion. Massages and bodywork techniques leave muscles relaxed and minds destressed, and raindrop therapy soothes the spine with essential oils and heat from hot towels or tiny lightning bolts.
With a focus on wellness, the staff at Diamond's Garden Massage & Stress Relief promotes feelings of calm with tension-relief and pain-management treatments, as well as three types of massages. Licensed techs also tackle skin woes with body scrubs, hand treatments, and hydrating facials. An assortment of retreat packages, such as the Diamond Treatment, bundles together massages and spa treatments to pamper frames from the inside out.
At ProActive Health & Wellness, a skilled staff revitalizes worn-down or overstressed bodies through chiropractic care, nutritional guidance, and massage therapy.

People go to spas to forget about the outside world. How does your decor help create an atmosphere where visitors can unwind?
Each massage takes place inside a private studio with soft lighting and relaxing music.
Do you agree with the phrase "beauty is on the inside?" Why or why not?*
Yes. No matter what happens in your life, or what surrounds you, joy and beauty flows within you.
What's the most common beauty mistake you see people make? What would you recommend they do instead?
Being hard on themselves and not taking time out of their lives to relax and let their minds recuperate.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
It all starts with making that first step.
Massage 4 Wellness’s founder worked as a massage therapist for 19 years—many of them in physical-therapy and chiropractic offices. The rest of the staff of female and male therapists also boasts extensive massage experience, and two staffers are also certified fitness trainers who have worked in physical rehabilitation.
All of this experience under one roof guarantees that clients' issues— such as a sore back, strained shoulders, or frayed nerves—will be remedied by professional hands well-versed in treating the body. During treatments, therapists soothe tension, tightness, and chronic pain by utilizing a variety of massage modalities such as deep-tissue and sports massage. Therapists also offer Swedish and hot-stone treatments for those looking for a relaxation-focused experience, and they give expectant mothers a break from singing lullabies about building a successful stock portfolio with prenatal massage. The facility also includes a newly remodeled gym where clients can participate in personal-fitness-training sessions.
