The certified reflexologists at Rejuvenesence Reflexology believe that the body is always communicating itself, and they specialize in listening. Using their hands like tuning forks, the team detects physical and emotional disharmony through the hands and soles of the feet and attempts to restore balance through applied pressure. Each treatment ensconces clients in a soothing atmosphere marked by aromatherapy inside a private treatment room.
For the past 30 years, Another Look Hair Institute’s scalp experts have been rejuvenating thinning manes and receding hairlines with a range of preventive measures and synthetic hair restoration. The crux of their regimen is the synthetic Cyberhair, a fiber that mimics the texture, appearance, and styling properties of human hair. The Micro Point Link process ties four of these Cyberhair strands to your existing individual hairs, creating the appearance of a full head of hair by adding up to 600 additional strands. The team also helps mitigate hair loss naturally with their Hair Support program, which cleanses clogged follicles to encourage new growth.

If a cornucopia could grow to the size of a city block, it would look something like Lansing City Market. On a typical day, baskets brim with peppers, squash, and turnips from local farms, and homemade pies flaunt fillings as sweet and colorful as the rainbow that fathered Shirley Temple. Nearly 20 year-round merchants chat with passersby, telling the stories behind handmade wares such as soaps, chutneys, and garden statues. At Caruso's Candy Kitchen, kids ogle hand-dipped chocolates and bins of bulk candy, which teem with gummi bears and Jelly Belly jellybeans. Adults gather around the tables at Uncle John's Fruit House Winery, drinking in the flavors of Michigan's orchards with free samples of cherry wine and apple brandy. To make shopping as enjoyable as possible, Market Place Massage's trio of therapists melts muscle knots and undigested cheese logs with trigger-point therapy and flowing Swedish massage strokes.

Over the course of a two-hour appointment, Andrea Loveless of The Head Room Salon trims, hydrates, and lightens feminine manes with artillery from high-end brands such as Aveda, Redken, and Enjoy. Clients sip on complimentary beverages as Andrea susses out their likes and dislikes, current haircare regimen, and favorite congressional hairstyle during an initial consultation. Armed with a patron-approved plan of action, the skilled stylist shapes and sculpts head threads into a comely configuration, and douses strands in a soothing deep-conditioning treatment to leave locks hydrated and silky smooth. Finally, partial highlights dress tresses in a sun-kissed glow without the hassle of taking Apollo on a dinner date. Andrea doles out her mane-maintenance services within the chic confines of The Head Room Salon, located in a modern rehabilitated space equipped with distressed hardwood floors, sleek counters, and foot rests at every shampoo bowl and dryer chair.
