For the past five years, Tamara Thomas has been soothing shoulders and unknotting muscles during her relaxing massages. Believing that massage is a necessity, not a luxury, she glides hands over backs during tension-relieving Swedish massages or works to alleviate pain during targeted deep-tissue massages. She adds pampering treatments to the massages to further relax guests, such as dipping hands in warm paraffin, or placing warm stones on specific bodily areas.

Massage therapist Bee Queener channels her training at Ann Arbor Institute of Massage Therapy and passion for helping to ease discomfort and pain into custom therapeutic massages. Bon Vitale Naturale massage oil helps Bee's hands to skate smoothly over the skin as they apply targeted pressure on client-chosen areas, untying knots and easing aches in modalities ranging from Swedish massage to myofascial-release therapy. Beyond banishing discomfort from backs during massage sessions, the spa's custom facial massage services—in addition to perfecting the skin—seek to ease tension from the face, neck, and jawline, helping clients to swiftly chew steak without help from mother birds. In keeping with her own personal vegan habits, Bee uses vegan facial products from Lush, carefully chosen to match each client’s unique skinscape.

Bee’s ground-level office employs warm orange tones to elicit feelings of health and vitality. The welcoming atmosphere encourages patrons to express their needs and comfort levels, and in keeping with this philosophy, clients can undress as much or as little as they like, lounging beneath professional draping or keeping on beloved aluminum foil cardigans.

Peridot Health & Massage's proprietor, Lori Planck, delves digits into muscle groups to extricate deep-seated tension and soreness. In order to customize each session, she consults with clients to discover their most tender tense areas and whether they have a tendency to involuntarily do the caterpillar on trains. Light-to-heavy stretching may accompany massage sessions, which Lori renders more dynamic by drawing from a range of modalities, including her specialties, deep-tissue and relaxation massage. Lori also augments her massage roster with aromatherapy treatments, which come in blends such as calming, soothing, relaxing, and catatonic.

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.

J. Bruno's Salon & Barbershop may be small, but it has a big heart and an even bigger sense of obligation to keep its clients looking good. This salon is staffed by friendly stylists who can revamp women's silhouettes with haircuts, which they always start with a quick chat about what the client wants and what hair-shape will best accentuate a recently purchased monocle. Barbers are on hand to help men look dapper with fades, tapers, razor lines, and warm lather shaves. Since the team considers looks from head to toe, they also offer to update digits with manicures and pedicures.
