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.
The stylists at Allure Salon & Spa strive to cultivate a personable environment—they compare the salon’s atmosphere to that of the TV show Cheers, except with less beer, more shampoo, and no patronizing laugh tracks. Inside this amiable salon, each stylist boasts more than 20 years of experience in the haircare industry. They get to know their clients before dolling them up with MoroccanOil and American Crew products in order to craft elegant hairdos or glossy, manicured nails that complement each guest’s personal style. A certified keratin straightening practitioner transforms damaged or frizzy hair into a smooth waterfall of strands, skincare specialists evoke natural skin tones, and massage therapists loosen clenched backs and shoulders with calming strokes.
The eponymous owner of Darrell Barrett Salon strives to keep his salon at the top of its game by constantly broadening and deepening his stylists' skill sets with ongoing workshops and seminars.

Flattering cuts come in both classic and high-fashion varieties, and a range of specialty hair services can make locks pop with color after partial or full highlights. Glamorizing services—including makeup application, waxing, and eyelash extensions—prepare visages for weddings, special events, and a night out hitting up various book clubs.
