Modeled after traditional Korean spas, King Spa and Sauna houses nine distinct therapy rooms, each of which specializes in treating a different form of ailment or anxiety. The Charcoal room lines its walls with antibacterial briquettes, which can alleviate conditions such as eczema and undercooked pork sausage. The domed sauna in the Fire Sudatorium encircles entrants in the room's dry-heat and oak-tree aromatherapy, whereas the low temperature of the Ice room encourages blood flow to the chilled parts of the body. In the heated Base Rock room, slabs of siraka stone deploy infrared rays into prostrate patrons, inciting increased circulation and lymphatic drainage during a process that, like most mixed-martial-arts careers, typically doesn't last longer than two 15-minute sessions.

At an initial in-home consultation, Lone Star Blinds will help clients peruse window coverings from a plethora of sources. Well-behaved 2-inch faux blinds from Hunter Douglas’s EverWood collection won’t warp, crack, or run off to join a forest like hardwood look-alikes ($70+). Applause and Duette honeycomb shades block sunlight from homes ($140+), and a set of 3.5-inch shutters can stop big-bad wolves and annoyingly persistent census takers from peeking inside fairy-tale cottages ($300+). Once a selection has been made, blind minders jot down the windows’ height, width, and favorite flavor of saltwater taffy so that they can gallop back with a garment carefully fitted to its panes. All prices are based on a 3’x6’ window whose middle name is Steve.
The corporeal caretakers at Texas Beauty Institute thwart the façade-fading effects of aging and natural wear with an enlivening array of noninvasive, anti-aging solutions. The less jaded cousin of microdermabrasion, the Jet Clear peeling system eschews irksome microcrystals for the lush, hygienic surge of saline to help correct skin imperfections such as acne, scars, wrinkles, and grossly mislabeled temporary tattoos. A nourishing medley of collagen and elastin widen skin channels to sink deep into pores and usher in a refreshing flood of beneficial skin serums. Jet Clear's procedure begets a gleaming facial transformation without the irritating ruddiness and scratchy sensation of microdermabrasion. There is no downtime, and faces leave the beauty institute with hydrated skin that's smoother than Barry White's pet dolphin.
Enchanted Faeries Studio seems less like a venue for family photos, and more like a portal to another world. During sessions, children don flowing dresses or fantasy woodland costumes, as well as shimmering wings. They pose for pictures by sitting atop giant toadstools, holding bright lanterns, or even puckering their lips at a hopeful frog figurine. The staff members touch up the images with ethereal effects—they can add flames to a brandished sword, or create a mirror-like pond to complete the forest environment. Parents can even wear wings of their own in a group portrait, and later purchase photo packages of prints and DVDs.
