House of Élan offers revitalizing body treatments for existing humans and personalized hair-removal options for men and women. Dr. John Verstraete and his team of whisker-erasers employ elos technology to clear bodily brush without resorting to wax or wildfires. Over the course of six sessions, strand assassins will harness bi-polar radio frequencies and light energies to precisely target unwanted keratin and foil follicular invasions, systematically weakening woolen defenses with each treatment.

A hair studio, yoga den, and holistic wellness center might seem like a unique combination, but it makes perfect sense to founders Holly Williams and Angela Cronk. Both come from work backgrounds in beauty services and maintain personal lifestyles that emphasize holistic wellness—creating the roots of their center that combines the best of both worlds. At Hagoyah, they’ve assembled a team of stylists, massage therapists, yoga instructors, and life coaches that provides just those things to all of their clients and students, helping them achieve a personal balance between the physical and mental.
On a regular day at Hagoyah, a massage therapist soothes muscles with various techniques, and elsewhere instructors move through relaxing yoga poses within heated rooms. Aestheticians create their own facial products for clients, and stylists with John Paul Mitchell and other credentials cut and color hair to complement their clients’ looks. The services don't stop at the studio, though. Life coaches and nutritional coaches are also on hand to help clients make lifelong positive changes that can bolster their health inside and out.

Some issues that may be uncovered based on brainwave patterns include depression and anxiety, poor overall wellness or mental acuity, and lacking athletic performance.
