The makeup artists at the organic beauty boutique apply 100% nontoxic beauty products, and during the half-hour makeup application, only the likes of RMS Beauty, Julie Hewett, Vapour, and other natural brands will grace your face. The Still Point's trained appliers will work with you to create a customized look for any special event or reality-show audition. Opt for a dramatic dusting of color to the cheeks to appear appropriately rosy, or request expertly lined eyes to enhance a striking facial feature, your earlobes. The application also includes detailed instructions on how to replicate the look in front of a mirror at home or in an amusement park.
Aza Wellness is home to experienced and licensed massage therapist and holistic health practitioner Razan Gregory, a graduate of the Baltimore School of Massage. In a cozy environment, clients receive a one-hour signature massage ($65) that combines calming Swedish-massage techniques, a muscle-untensing deep-tissue massage, stretching for increased range of motion, and rocking movements gentle enough to balance bodies. Afterward, patients can relax with a 25-minute anti-aging facial massage ($50), which exfoliates before massaging the facial/neck/décolleté zones, cleansing with a honey mask, hydrating, and applying an essential-oil-drenched hot towel. The treatment turns an adult face into that of a baby adult or just a baby.

Detoxification services, such as colonics, ionic footbaths, and steam baths, work to deport impurities from this republic of respite, whereas acupuncture, reiki, and reflexology help keep energy levels balanced.
