Though the original Shangri-La may have been a mythical utopia, the Shangri-La Spa and Wellness Studio is a real, brick-and-mortar escape from the stresses of everyday life. Here, massage therapists alleviate tension with careful kneading, a medical esthetician turns back time with anti-aging facials, and a makeup artist teaches clients how to apply flattering cosmetics. But the studio doesn't focus on bettering the body alone. Free monthly meditation workshops help participants to center themselves, while Cell Free Sundays encourage participants to unplug and simply draw a smiley face when they feel like taking a selfie.
CODA Music Therapy Services, LLC (CODA MTS) is a privately owned agency which specializes in providing music therapy services within schools & hospitals and early childhood music & movement classes. CODA MTS offers a number of services which provide Creative Opportunities for Developing the Abilities of our clients.
A checkered-flag door rises from the 1950s-style gas station facade of Corky?s Detailing Shack, where owner Robert Elliot welcomes cars inside for a personally performed detailing. Elliot?s washes use only 100% purified water without the grime of reclaimed alternatives or inefficient spit shines, and his interior detailing services go so far as to remove seats during steam cleaning if necessary. Paintless dent removal, window tinting, and stain guards help maintain aesthetic appearances, and the garage's hydraulic lift assists with more extensive services that range from brake and tire repairs to light electrical repair.
Once you pass Salon Savvy?s pristine hairstyling stations and black-leather mani-pedi chairs, you reach a private room surrounded by blue-grey walls and illuminated by flickering candles. This room is Ashley Kosloski?s home away from home, where her clients visit so she can fix their skin problems. In doing so, Ashley customizes her facials to ensure any skin type or issue is correctly addressed. She extracts acne-causing dirt and bacteria from pores and imbues dry patches with moisturizer. A special microdermabrasion wand tackles fine lines and blemishes by exfoliating the topmost layer of skin on faces, revealing a visage that looks millions of seconds younger.
The menu at Westgate Tavern launches armadas of scents from individually sculpted burger patties and hand-tossed pizzas. Flat-screen televisions glow overhead as diners start their engines with Wisconsin mozzarella melting over handmade deep-dish breadsticks ($6.99) before tearing around the golden-baked corners of a barbecue-chicken pie loaded with pineapple ($9.99+). Bleu cheese and bacon tango atop a burger escorted by fries curlier than Shirley Temple’s handwriting ($7.99). Billiards balls clink on an expanse of green felt as players fuel their aim with a deluxe Italian sub’s folds of ham, salami, capicola, and provolone ($7.99). A cheeseburger pizza ($8.99+), meanwhile, draws on hybrid flavor like a centaur's recipe for sweet and sour sauce.

Do you agree with the phrase "beauty is on the inside?" Why or why not?
I do. It goes along with the saying, "Don't judge a book its cover." We do it all the time, whether we notice it or not. My best friend almost wasn't my friend at all because I had decided that because she was so beautiful on the outside, there was no way she was beautiful on the inside. As it turns out, she is one of the most caring and loving people I know. There are all kinds of people out there. If we don't take the time to know them, then we have failed not only ourselves, but our future generations.
What's the most common beauty mistake you see people make? What would you recommend they do instead?
It's the fact that some people don't wash their faces or they use regular body soap to do it. Being a massage therapist, I take care of the body and soul. Being a Mary Kay consultant, I take care of skin. The skin on your face is more delicate and has a different reaction to what you use on your body. You need something that is formulated for your face to take care of any problems that you might have.
What is the best reaction you?ve ever gotten from a client?
When they told me that I made them feel human again. It broke my heart that they had experienced so much pain during their recovery and then after. Their doctors couldn't find a way to relieve their pain, but I did. It made my day to see a big smile on their face.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
I love to talk and to get to know new people. So if you come in for a treatment and would like peace and quiet, just let me know before hand. My goal is to help you relieve stress, not to cause more of it.
