While some people wander the globe in search of ways to make their mark, licensed massage therapist Stacy Breeden affects positive change on the citizens of the city where she grew up. A native of Knoxville and a Smoky Mountain enthusiast, Stacy channels the restful quality of her rolling surroundings, decreasing anxiety, improving circulation, and increasing joint flexibility with reflexology treatments and a collection of massage services that include Swedish, deep tissue. Her Indulge Your Senses massage uses hot stones and aromatherapy to enhance relaxation, and raindrop therapy drips essential oil along the spine to rid the body of toxins and stress.
Upon walking into Debbie's nail salon, guests are encouraged to kick back and relax as she beautifies hands and feet with gentle care. While patrons sink into the comfy pedicure chairs or share a self-brought snack with friends—both of which are welcomed and encouraged by Debbie—a heated footbath jiggles away stress with gentle vibrations. Debbie can target a range of specific issues with clients' phalanges, such as ingrown nails, fungus, and muscle ailments. Whether patrons stop in for aesthetic touchups, health upgrades, or a speed-reenactment of North by Northwest, they'll leave with prettily polished nails and softer, smoother skin.
