When guests walk out of Salon Ji, they always feel different from when they entered, whether they’re reveling in newfound confidence due to a fresh hairstyle or an aura of relaxation after a soothing massage. In addition to cuts and color, stylists sweep hair into elegant updos, add extensions, or decorate locks with trendy feathers, which can help clients establish a good rapport with neighborhood sparrows. Nail specialists treat hands and feet to mani-pedis using regular or long-lasting Shellac polish, which remains chip-free for up to two weeks. The staff further pampers guests with facials and body waxing.
Pendant lights cast a soft glow over Salon Ji’s sleek purple-gray walls, which contrast with a collection of vibrant paintings. Waiting guests can cozy up in modern black armchairs and browse the web with complimentary WiFi while sipping coffee.
Licensed massage therapists render a panoply of massage modalities geared toward fulfilling their professional mission of vanquishing pain. The team observes that pain encroaches into bodies from many sources, such as stress from work, overexertion from playing sports, or stiffness from traveling cross-country in an overhead bin. To combat these many causes and iterations of pain, each massage therapist culls their experiences to choreograph their own interpretations of massage modalities, each tailored specifically to fit the needs of the client.
Not one to rest on his hard-earned academic laurels, Optimal Health Center's presiding chiropractor Dr. Stephen Gradwohl continues to bolster his Doctor of Chiropractic degree with advanced studies in orthopedics and sports chiropractic.

This commitment to unceasing education pays off for their patients, who benefit from a combination of traditional chiropractic spinal adjustments, nutrition counseling, and lifestyle advice. The doctor and his staff focus on treatments that complement one another and heal the body holistically, accounting for psychological needs with personal consultations and dramatic reenactments of classic feel-good movies.
One member of that staff, licensed massage therapist Jessica Williams, works to knead tension and discomfort from muscles with a range of treatments. Depending on the needs of the patient, she might put to use warm river stones, aromatherapy products, or the long strokes of Swedish massage. She also has experience working with athletes and expectant mothers.
Massage Midwest's licensed massage therapist and rehabilitation specialist mends muscles with relaxation- and medical-style massages. During a chair massage, the client sits facing the cushions of a specially made massage chair as the professional kneader assuages the exposed back, shoulders, neck, and arms. Clients can opt to receive the relaxing treatment atop a massage table or in a kitchen sink instead of a chair, and massage upgrades are available for an additional cost.
With return clients making up approximately 90% of the studio's business, the bodywork experts make sure that each treatment addresses the particular therapeutic needs of the individual. Patrons can part the pea soup with a moment of clarity that will live beyond their visit to Massage Midwest. They may use their newfound clearheadedness and rubberized being to achieve higher productivity, contagiously relax those around them, or finally beat Galaga.
At Skin Clinic, owner Adriane Ritchie creates an environment in which clients are treated holistically to address skin conditions that are often squelched with plastic surgery. During complimentary consultations, skincare professionals analyze each client's skin type while taking into consideration lifestyle, diet, and their complete medical history. With this all-encompassing view in mind, the spa's team designs treatments specific to each person's needs and desires. For instance, the aestheticians can recommend noninvasive skin-tightening treatments. Additionally, they educate their clients on how best to care for their skin on a day-to-day basis. The center's experts may also help boost self-confidence by reducing concerns associated with sun damage, acne, and hyperpigmentation by administering rejuvenating facials, microdermabrasions, or chemical peels.

After appointments, colorful bottles of styling potions vie for attention near the salon’s exit, ready to be adopted by a loving nest of hair.
