The holistic healers of Natural Healing are used to viewing health through a different lens. They study the whites of the eyes to determine causes of sickness in the body, and channel energy to help and adjust imbalances. They also guide their clients through meditation to help them achieve inner balance.
Surrounded by a sprawling shopping center that features restaurants, stores and salons, the Regal Village Square 18 is one of Vegas’ many multiplex theaters. But rather than succumb to the noise and chaos of some other chain theater houses, Regal Village Square 18 maintains a quieter, more serene environment. Patrons have the luxury of watching most new releases from plush seats, while 3D images scream past. Other high-quality screens show films in standard formats, and everyone can enjoy the stocked concession stand, lined with the usual assortment of colorful candy snacks. Looming sodas, dangerously piled popcorn tubs and heartier fare like pizza, nachos, corn dogs and chicken nuggets round out the offerings.
At 808 Tapas, two island cuisines converge in a bounty of Japanese and Hawaiian dishes. The worldly palates of executive chef Yoshiyuki Kojima and sous chef Rex Ibanez don't stop there, either. Elements from global recipes influence every one of their dishes, whether it’s the eatery’s take on nachos—ahi tuna poke and avocado atop fried lotus root chips—or their potato-free fries, composed of Panko-crusted slabs of eggplant. Italy even gets its time in the sun with a caprese salad crowned in lomi-lomi salmon, a Hawaiian specialty. Inside the restaurant, diners ponder whether science will ever determine how many Hawaiian islands there are at long communal tables or at the sushi bar, where chefs craft more than 20 roll varieties.
Rivi Salon & Boutique's skilled aestheticians evict strand squatters from their dermal domiciles using Dermalogica techniques to minimize discomfort and ensure quality hair removal. During the 20- to 45-minute waxing treatments, patrons recline inside a private room as professionals de-hair underarms or tighten lower body perimeters by eradicating stray bristles with a bikini wax. Alternately, a Brazilian wax comprehensively clears the entire area, extricating hair from the bikini zone’s nethermost nooks to leave skin as smooth as a zambonied basketball court.
If you ask a child to draw the meaning of Christmas, there’s a good chance it would look something like Rocket Fizz. A step into Rocket Fizz is a step back in time—into a wonderland of old-fashioned candies and sodas that appear to be straight out of a kid’s imagination or a sugar factory’s family tree. The progeny of cofounders Rob Powells and Ryan Morgan, the shops—which have been mentioned on The Price is Right and endorsed by celebrities such as Snooki from _Jersey Shore_—burst with thousands of soda pops and candies.
Rob and Ryan created their own brand of pure-cane-sugar Rocket Fizz sodas, which tickle tongues in flavors such as banana nut, cherry cola, and apple jalapeño. Lester’s Fixins and Melba’s Fixins sodas—named for Ryan’s grandparents—offer sweet tastes of apple-pie soda or key-lime soda and adventurous flavors such as bacon soda and sweet-corn soda. Candy bars include classics such as Rocky Road, Bit-O-Honey, and Sky Bars, and bite-size candies include favorites such as Nerds, Milk Duds, and peanut-butter cookie-dough bites. Each shop also stocks nostalgic items, such as movie and music posters, gag gifts, and popular Jones sodas.
