The certified pamperers at Tennessee Floyd's Bodywork soothe frayed nerves and rekindle sallow complexions with a robust repertoire of massage and spa treatments. With dexterous, attuned fingertips, licensed massage therapists deliver long, relaxing Swedish-style strokes, unburdening bodies of the tension that coils minds into Slinky-esque shapes. During sports-medicine-influenced massages, therapists target athletic afflictions, and clients in search of exotic forms of bodywork can indulge in specialty massages, such as hot-stone and rain-drop treatments, which boost blood flow and usher in deep serenity. Additionally, during exfoliating salt and sugar scrubs, aestheticians slough off epidermis-dulling dry skin to restore a natural glow rivaling even the most enthusiastic firefly. Clients meanwhile relax into aromatherapy sessions to awaken olfactory glands that have been in a deep sleep since the neighborhood donut shop shuttered its doors.
The yoga studio at The Bee Well Boutique & Spa is probably much different from what students are accustomed to. More living room than studio, the space features bright-white wainscoting, decorative mirrors and clocks, and even a fireplace. This quirky setting makes for a comfortable, welcoming environment where students of all levels can work through yoga poses and breathing exercises.
The homey ambiance extends throughout the rest of the space, where aestheticians conduct a variety of facials in private treatment rooms. Post-facial, clients can opt for a sunless tan, or peruse the varied massage menu. On the boutique side, accessories and locally made beauty products occupy shelves, and patrons can even rent out the unique space for private events such as bridal showers and birthday parties.

Before developing Elite Ceuticals Non Surgical Face Lift, the owner spent more than 20 years formulating skincare products for other companies. Armed with that experience, she creates skincare blends that stimulate and revive aging skin with aloe vera that's grown hydroponically—that is, fed a regimen of minerals and vitamins and never treated with pesticides or put through a laminating machine.
