A skilled staff of massage therapists and acupuncturists boosts clients' bodily morale with a slew of holistic services at The Healing Path. The repertoire of massage, acupuncture, nutritional-coaching, and counseling services work together to improve clients' total well-being. Before massage sessions, therapists interview clients to better understand their health before deciding on which of the massage modalities at their disposal will best ease physical pain and unwind mental stress. The long, flowing strokes of traditional Swedish massage form a blissful foundation for therapeutic sessions, which aim to release knotted soft tissue, dispel stress, and improve circulation. Hands carefully knead away deep aches during prenatal massage to help make mother, unborn child, and the unborn child's weekend houseguests comfortable during pregnancy.

Before acupuncture sessions, acupuncturists make a comprehensive evaluation of clients' concerns before inserting fine needles into specific points along the body to help boost the immune system and increase circulatory flow. The Healing Path also facilitates mental healing with psychotherapy sessions to help develop coping skills, work through issues, or provide a safe space to unspool stress.

Getting an awful haircut can be an oddly traumatizing experience. When a teenaged Elizabeth Ford got an awful haircut, she used it as inspiration to work toward opening her own salon one day, where she would ensure her clients would leave happy with how they look. She eventually opened As You Like It Salon and Spa, where after 35 years she's still motivated by the idea that everyone should have a style that makes them feel beautiful. To that end, her and a team of stylists perform everything from haircuts and coloring treatments to keratin and bioionic hair-straightening services.

Over the years Elizabeth also added a spa, and now counts a certified aesthetician and massage therapist among her ranks. Resident aesthetician Gina used to be a television makeup artist, and the studio offers makeup applications as well as lash extensions and glycolic facials. Massage services include relaxation and prenatal sessions, as well as essential oil-based raindrop therapy, which is generally preferred to lightning therapy.

Reflexology: Tracking Energy from Head to Toe

Though reflexology shares much in common with acupuncture, it has its own unique properties and origins. Read on to learn more about the practice.

In the early 20th century, you might have been able to identify patients coming from a reflexology appointment by the clothespins on their fingertips. Today?s reflexologists generally carry out their treatments by hand in a wellness clinic or a massage studio, but the principle remains the same: apply pressure to specific points on the hands, feet, or ears, prompting responses in organs throughout the body.

Similar to acupuncture and acupressure, the practice posits that energy pathways run throughout the body. Reflexology?s system, however, is a bit simpler than Chinese medicine?s complex map of meridians. Envision vertical lines running from each toe up through the leg, joining lines running from each finger up the arm toward the neck and coming together in the head, and you have the body divided into 10 attractively slimming reflexology zones. Within each zone on the palm or?most common in reflexology sessions today?the sole, certain pressure points are thought to correspond to organs, joints, or other tissues elsewhere in the same zone.

Dr. William Fitzgerald?originator of the clothespin technique?began practicing what he called ?zone therapy? in 1915. While research has yet to find a concrete link between modern medical thought and the millennia-old idea of imperceptible bodily energy, that doesn't mean reflexology can't be relaxing. Patients can expect the benefits of a treatment to include at least those of a good foot massage: increased circulation, relieved muscle tension, and decreased stress and susceptibility to tickle attacks. Even early proponents of the technique accepted that results might vary from person to person. Writing in 1928, physician Bernard Lust was content with claiming that ?the adoption of the method is attended with absolutely no danger or disagreeable results, and may be the means of lengthening short lives and making good health catching.?

At Jamachi Plastic Surgery & Medi-Spa, a diverse team of practitioners helps beautify clients from head to toenail. At the helm is plastic surgeon Dr. Emeka Onyewu, who has performed thousands of procedures—with a specialty in breast surgeries and liposuction—earning him a level of expertise that's been shared on news programs such as NBC 4. He's joined by Dr. Adaku Onukogu, a board-certified internist who administers flu shots and assists patients with managing their weight, overall health, and well-being. 

Nail technicians, massage therapists, and aestheticians head up Jamachi's spa services, which are performed at mani-pedi stations or in treatment rooms. Aesthetician Trina McIntosh draws upon postgraduate training at the International Dermal Institute when revivifying faces with custom blends of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. April Parnell softens hands and feet with such specialty ingredients as champagne, olive oil, and happy unicorn tears during mani-pedis, and massage therapists Nmaku Onyewu and Joel Price lure stress out of bodies with customized techniques.

It's a haven for an hour's relaxation or a little special attention. Behind L&N Massage's doors, therapists unfurl the soothing techniques of Swedish, deep-tissue, and prenatal massage on tired backs and bodies, easing away the stresses of a mother's busy day. And while these bodywork sessions are relaxing on their own, they can be made even more so with lavish add-ons. Clients can supplement their massage with warm towels or hot stones, back scrubs that recharge the muscles, and aromatherapy scents that evoke tropical islands. Ever keeping an eye on the body's overall well-being, L&N Massage's healers also offer wraps with infrared-sauna treatments to help detoxify and slim physiques.

Window decals of traditional barbershop poles signal the entrance to Kisner’s Barber Salon, where licensed and certified hairstylists cut, color, and perm hair seven days a week. After sitting down for an initial consultation, men, women, and children can add new dimensions to their looks with a sleek cut and style. The salon’s services don’t stop at the scalp, however. Nourishing facials infuse skin with essential moisturizers and professional massages melt away stress with gentle strokes. Thankfully, none of that stress will come from being dissatisfied with one’s haircut; clients may return within two days for an alteration or a confidence-boosting compliment, both free of charge.
