For the mind behind Psychic Botanica, it's all in the family. A fifth-generation psychic, she focuses on helping people to find love, repair damaged relationships, and to leave unhappiness behind. Pulling from a toolbox stocked with tarot cards and crystals, she performs palm, psychic, and chakra readings, attempts to peer through the fog of history to uncover past lives, and works to break bad luck streaks, much to the relief of her client's fifth and final set of spare car keys.
Brush Design was created in 2002 by the mother-daughter team Chrisann Goad and Ashley Thorne. More than 10 years later, the duo continues to work one-on-one with clients and dream up designs that revitalize walls.

Nutrition and lifestyle coach Kay Smith discovered the healing potential of regular Pilates practice through her recovery from knee surgery, inspiring her to become a Stott certified Pilates instructor. The Stott Pilates method, modeled on scientific fitness and spinal rehabilitation techniques, uses an expertly designed machine to aid muscles in their quest for strength, flexibility, and an affordable live-in masseuse. Reformer classes last 55-minutes and are kept small, allowing instructors to gently guide students individually. This full body workout is safe enough for pregnant clients and challenging enough for Olympic-level yoga posers. Eight-person mat classes require that students bring their own mat and prepare for 50 minutes of core-strengthening moves designed to sculpt long, lean muscles. Mat classes are held Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at noon. Call ahead for the reformer schedule or to reserve a spot in either class.

Alongside the ranks of stationery stand gifts from brands including Ganz and Willow Tree, as well as greeting cards and holiday decorations.

A graduate of Dayanand Medical College in Punjab, India, Dr. Thandi completed her residency in family practice at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Today, she practices general medicine and performs cosmetic enhancements with equal care aided by an aesthetician and a medical assistant. Dr. Thandi meets with each of her patients and has a hand in every procedure, from cosmetic injections to preventative care exams. The two aspects of the practice seem to balance out. Gentle body-sculpting treatments can be incorporated into a weight management regime, and up-to-date medical acuity can address dermatological concerns such as psoriasis or an embarrassing tattoo of the Pythagorean theorem.
