Softouch Permanent Makeup uses the finest beauty products to restore visages to prelapsarian levels of smoothness and radiance. In the microdermabrasion treatment, a stream of fine particles gently dislodges the outermost layer of tired, sulky skin, giving young, untested cells the opportunity to prove themselves and finally show their parents that being a face cell is just as important and respectable as being a neuron. The procedure is effective in reducing fine lines, blemishes, and sun damage. A repairing serum and smoothing mask are applied after the treatment to expedite the body's natural healing process, quickly eliminating the slight puffiness and soreness that accompany the treatment and helping forge skin with the uncanny smoothness and alluring glow of a phosphorescent baby shrimp.

At Mario's Massage Therapy, the on-staff therapists are intent on quelling aches and stress. But before they put their hands to work, they hold a pre-massage consultation. This gives clients a chance to point out any areas they'd like the therapist to focus on, such as a sore back or a grumpy skull tattoo. The therapists will then administer a custom-tailored massage that addresses those concerns. They might call on Swedish and deep-tissue kneads, or perhaps lymphatic-drainage treatments or shiatsu. With this range of modalities, therapists have the skills to address both physical and emotional stress: Swedish massage can help clients relax, whereas deep-tissue and shiatsu can help them overcome muscle tension or chronic pain.

A full-service spa, Peaceful Beginnings treats clients to an array of relaxing and rejuvenating services. Swedish massage, a light- to medium-pressured technique, uses long, connective strokes and kneading to improve blood flow, stimulate the lymphatic system, relieve physical tension, and melt stress into a puddle of biodegradable papier-mâché. After a licensed massage therapist employs oils and lotions to moderate muscular tensions, clients emerge with a newfound sense of repose, looser limbs, and a spring in their step.

Since 1960, US Bio-Chem Medical Lab has aimed to answer a common, yet complex question: am I healthy? Their team administers more than 400 tests, one for every day of the year and then some. Some potential options include glucose screenings, EKGs, and vision screenings. Attempting to provide a more efficient alternative to hospitals, they require no doctor's orders, complete screenings in around 30 minutes, and typically turn around results the next day.
