Norma Brinker could be called a natural. Starting at a very young age, she honed her skills painting for the fun of it, eventually earning a college degree doing what she loves best. Today, she brings a wealth of experience and a bag of ideas to her studio, Noric Art & Wellness, where she inspires amateur artists with her passion for painting. During Friday night's BYOB classes, florid brush strokes alternate with delicate sips while Norma instructs students on painting pre-made portraits of hearts, trees, and scenic blank canvases. When not teaching art classes, Norma puts her skills as a licensed massage therapist to work by doling out massages, cupping treatments, and reflexology.

When the aestheticians of The Upper Level Spa blend water, lemon juice, and sugar, they're not making lemonade. Rather, they're forming a paste that uproots hair and temporary tattoos without causing skin damage. Unlike traditional waxing, sugaring eschews artificial ingredients, scents, dyes, and even heat?though the paste is warm, it will never burn skin, making it ideal for large or highly sensitive areas. In addition to sugaring, the skincare specialists offer vitamin-infused facials, 15 types of chemical peels, and natural airbrush tans. A massage therapist complements these and other spa services with bodywork sessions in a variety of modalities.
