Arkansas Body Mechanics is an exclusive gym and wellness center that helps its clients maintain a healthy body and lifestyle by combining fitness programs with massage and stretching treatments. At this 24/7 gym, certified personal trainers offer one-on-one training and group fitness classes such as boot camp, Zumba, yoga, step, and Core Crunch. Members also have unlimited access to the onsite cardio machines, free weights, and strength-training equipment in the spacious workout area. After working up a sweat, clients can head to the private massage area, where an experienced therapist can loosen tight muscles and help stretch out any sore vestigial tails.
The sense of harmony that pervades the atmosphere of Statement Salon, Spa and Fitness extends to the spa’s lengthy menu of treatments, all of which work in unison to imbue the body with beauty and health. Whether cropping hair, polishing nails, or soaking skin in UV-free spray-tan solutions, the team works to accentuate clients' best physical features while complimentary fruit waters and herbal teas soothe frazzled nerves. Miriam Lopez is a multitalented aesthetician who came to Statement after studying at a professional Paul Mitchell cosmetology school, hoping to extend her expertise towards a variety of services, including hairstyling, facials, and waxing.
Though a visitor to the tranquil spa’s treatment rooms might not realize it, the sounds of pulsating music and stretch-induced groans echo throughout the studio just next door, where trainers lead personal workouts and fitness classes. Students of all ability levels can dance to the energetic beats of Zumba classes, stretch their limbs in yoga sessions, and haul bags filled with hot stones to the spa’s massage-therapy rooms during muscle-building boot camps.
The beauty experts at Statement Salon, Spa and Fitness create a bustling sanctuary where clients can enjoy a host of relaxing services. As hairstylists snip and color strands, aestheticians man private spa rooms, where they dole out seaweed facials and microdermabrasion treatments and enhance peepers with eyelash extensions or brow waxes. Nail technicians pamper fingers and toes with indulgent manicures and pedicures, and tanning technicians spray clients with a bronzing mist to prepare bodies for the beach or a career as a human trophy. Separated from the beauty mayhem in the salon, experienced instructors host personal-training sessions and group Zumba, boot-camp, and yoga classes in Statement's spacious, wood-floored fitness studio.

The licensed follicle whisperers at It's All About Me raise drooping spirits with a head-turning mane makeover. The human fleece revision begins with a color infusing lowlight or highlight service, adding depth to hair and playing favorites with sibling strands. Tresses also receive a proper trimming and style from the steady hands of the stylist, ramping the chic factor to new heights. A deep-conditioning treatment bolsters limp locks, giving hair a strong body and enough courage to finally tell their smothering hairbands to hit the bricks.
Licensed massage therapist James Hudson believes that massage is both a healing art and a science. Approaching his profession in the same way he lives his life—by treating everyone with dignity and respect—James helps clients relax while also ensuring they obtain maximum benefits. Ultimately, his massages are designed to alleviate pain, fatigue, and muscle or joint stiffness stemming from spending several days in a runaway hot-air balloon. Depending on each client’s needs, this could mean offering a Swedish, hot-stone, deep-tissue, or prenatal massage.
