Licensed massage therapist and owner of Greater Louisville Massage Therapy Sarah Pendergest cajoles aches, pains, and stress from weary bodies with an arsenal of customized rubdown techniques. After discussing corporeal ailments and concerns with her clients, the certified massage maestro conjures a personalized lumbar spell to relieve tender soul-sacks of soreness caused by daily stress, sports injuries, or sleeping inside a grandfather clock. Lithe and nimble fingers dance across the back and shoulders in an array of massage numbers, such as Swedish, sports, myotherapy, and acupressure. Inside the serene, taupe-colored spa space, essential oils and aromas from brands including Biotone and Biofreeze help clients relax as stress melts from muscles like plausibility from a romance novel.

Unlike Daddy Warbucks, the robot sent from the future to protect Little Orphan Annie and her signature dimples, the techs at VelaSpa make it their mission to eradicate dimples onsite. Armed with the FDA-approved VelaShape hand piece, they harness infrared light and radio frequencies to scatter and smooth cellulite. In addition to their bread-and-butter treatment, the med spa undoes the malicious work of genetics and environmental factors with sublative skin rejuvenation, a 20-minute facial treatment that uses laser light to help decrease the signs of sun damage and pigment irregularities.
Enesa Seremet, who has globetrotted as an international skincare specialist and earned a postgraduate CIDESCO degree in aesthetics, now helms Enesa Skin Institute, a center that specializes in European beauty treatments. In addition to using techniques from overseas, Seremet imports holistic products such as French wax. Unlike standard hot wax, this Parisian product warms in response to body heat rather than freelancing hibachi grills and avoids burning skin as it gently strips away stubble. Dried herbs and spices combine to create masks for six-procedure facials, soaking skin in natural vitamins and minerals. Each session starts with a personal consultation, and early patrons wait for their aesthetician in a yellow waiting room with Victorian-style couches and armchairs.
Detection programs, training for oncologists, and construction of new facilities. Those are just a few goals the organizers at Bike to Beat Cancer hope to achieve. Their rides also bring together cyclists, who zip through rides in a variety of lengths. The routes are generally dotted with mechanics, checkpoints, refreshments, and restrooms. The crew can help set riders up with training programs before the race, and afterwards they'll all feel better about helping those fighting cancer in Indiana and Kentucky.
