At Blissful Wellness Medical Weight Loss Centers, Dr. Elyssa Blissenbach and her team of licensed medical professionals and counselors devote their medical expertise to combating obesity. They take a three-pronged approach to slimming clients: customized programs, top-shelf supplements, and constant support. Like snowflakes’ DNA strands, no two patients are alike—and so staff members carefully calibrate diet and supplement plans to suit each client's metabolism, condition, and body type. The program also provides a support system for clients, offering everything from individual therapy to group outings to help ensure long-term weight loss.
Elements of Style's seasoned cosmetologists, aestheticians, and massage therapists combine their talents to augment outer appearances with progressive beauty techniques and products from Redken, Design Essentials, and Chi.

Elements of Style thoroughly pampers passersby with comprehensive gift packages that include facials, massages, and mani-pedis.
Under the direction of owner Kimberly Blair?a clinical and medical skincare therapist?the aestheticians at Bella Skincare Studio specialize in rejuvenating the faces of men and women.

Armed with skin-nourishing wares, epidermis experts dispense services ranging from tailored facials and glycolic peels to waxing services.
The tinkle of wind chimes announces clients' entry into Healing Waters Therapy, where licensed massage therapist Kristi B. Gabriel relieves muscle tension with health-minded massages. A graduate of the Coastal School of Massage Therapy, Gabriel uses her specialty in deep-tissue massage and neuromuscular therapy to prevent injury during treatments that take place in a space replete with peaceful flourishes—candlelight filters through an intricate wooden-lattice screen, and optional aromatherapy repels people who walk around setting off fireworks so they can enjoy the smell.
Christiana revels in the fact that all of her clients are their own unique beings. That means she gets to create a new, custom hairstyle at every appointment?the second-most popular reason for people becoming a stylist, right behind getting to play with hair clippings. She displays her true calling by expertly creating simple bobs or pixie cuts, leaving locks long and wispy, or adding body with lots of layers.
