For more than 26 years, Hands on Therapies has been helping sore backs find reprieve under the skilled hands of therapists well versed in a variety of massage techniques. Clients can stop in for a soothing Swedish massage, spasm-conquering trigger-point therapy, or tension-melting hot-stone massage seven days a week, or book a couples massage to enjoy stress-abatement side by side with a friend, spouse, or hard-working stunt double. Beyond the therapeutic kneads, Hands on Therapies also brings balance to bodies with life-force regulating energy work, and offers hypnotherapy to help guests quit bad habits, overcome fears, and build confidence.

In the friendly confines of Chiropractic Care & Sports Rehab, MollieShea Stephens manipulates muscles into states of relaxation with various massage techniques. A certified member of the American Massage Therapy Association, MollieShea's first passion was the gentle art of the Swedish massage, which enlivens capillaries and boosts blood flow while soothing away the stress of inner-city traffic jams and outer-city stampedes. For more stubborn soreness, she ratchets up the intensity to deep-tissue massage or trigger-point therapy. Her therapeutic magic can serve to help with sinus pressure or headaches, alleviate joint pain, and scare away muscle-dwelling gremlins.
Since 1990, So Natural Permanent Cosmetics has been embellishing eyebrows, lips, and peepers with permanent makeup, thickening eye fringe with Xtreme lash extensions, and misting on airbrush makeup. The salon’s certified permanent-cosmetics professionals amplify lids with indelible eyeliner, ruby-ify lips, and restore brows that have vanished after years of tweezing or hair-singeing experiments with baking soda and vinegar. The expertly applied enhancements, which take about an hour to apply, render lipstick and eyeliner as obsolete as an Esperanto-speaking lamplighter and last for years, with minimal touchups sometimes required after a few years.
