With a signature pizza size called the Monster, you’d expect Pudge Brothers Pizza to be more focused on quantity than quality. But in fact, the chefs create their signature varieties of hand-tossed pies by blending together the flavors of three sauces, a range of meats, and fresh veggies. From within sizzling ovens, chefs pull out creations such as the Jersey Girl—a pizza featuring italian sausage and green peppers—or the White Delight—a ham, chicken, and garlic-sauce combination. Pies range in size from 10 inches to 18 inches, with a range of garlic bread, wings, and cinnamon bread to fill in a meal. The shop also offers delivery service, ensuring clients can have a hot, hearty meal when time is short or when the paparazzi won’t leave their front yard.
Amazing Hands translates the complex body language of its clients with a diverse selection of massage styles and techniques expertly deployed to suit each body’s aches and tensions. At each location, a team of licensed massage therapists harnesses eastern and western techniques to oust muscle tension and detoxify tendons as clients relax on heated tables. Therapists specialize in helping to heal shoulder, knee, and back injuries with a combination of invigorating massage strokes and deep-tissue pressure, which can also help break up scar tissue. They use up to nine essential oils to stoke simultaneous mind and body relaxation, much like practicing yoga or sharing a hammock with a hypnotist.
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.
At Desert Acadia Skin and Massage Spa, Tess Elges does it all. The accomplished massage therapist performs seven different modalities including medical, deep-tissue, and hot stone massage. But she's also a licensed aesthetician who treats skincare woes with everything from microdermabrasion to pumpkin peels to oxygen infusions. Tess can also smooth bodies with sugar or salt scrubs, wax away fuzz from the face and body, and give a new tint to brows, lashes, and car windows.
Amie Griffin has had a passion for hairstyling since childhood, so it was no surprise that she ended up a student at the Paul Mitchell School in Denver. She has advanced education in razor-cutting, corrective color, and received certifications in Brazilian Blowouts and hair extensions?all to better serve her clients at Roxylocks. Amie isn't content to rest on her laurels, though. That's why she's received additional education on products from Paul Mitchell, Redken, Joico, and American Crew.
