The stylists and aestheticians at Indulge glamorize their clients with a full menu of hair, skin, and nail services. They dapper and gussy up men's, women's, and kids' locks during cuts, and artfully apply color to create foiled, balayage, and ombre styles to give hair depth and sheen. Facials and waxes smooth skin, and massages oust tension from muscles more safely than a silk-covered steam roller.
The doctors at Mercer Island Chiropractic work to relieve minor aches and soreness, but they specialize in tough cases: chronic pain and injuries sustained in accidents are their specialties. At three locations, they restore bodies to health with techniques such as manual adjustments that realign vertebrae and traction-table sessions that coax muscles into blissful relaxation. Patients can also rest easy beneath the hands of massage therapists, who employ techniques such as cupping, reflexology, and sternly ordering tension to exit the body.
Klein Massage & Day Spa’s service menu is relatively succinct, but what the center does, it does well—it was nominated for Best of Citysearch in 2010 for tanning and in 2009 for couples massage. Aside from massage, Klein’s body treatments include stretch therapy, designed to help athletes prevent injury and boost performance. But the services are mostly about looking your best. Aestheticians clear skin with facials and microdermabrasion, and other staff members perform beauty treatments such as sunless tanning and lash tinting so that clients will look even more striking than if they covered two-thirds of their bodies in lipstick.
People who come to Mindy Harbaugh for a facial might notice the extra care she takes to match clients with the right treatment, as well as her joy in their successful transformations. Before opening Min's Day Spa, Mindy spent many years as a nurse, and her career working with patients helped shape her approach to client comfort as she transitioned into her new operation. Upon examining the service offerings of the spa industry, the career medical provider found that her skill set uniquely positioned her to raise the bar. With the goal of providing results-oriented beauty treatments, she compiled her menu of services that includes familiar spa staples such as rejuvenating body wraps, massages, and waxing, with technology-based offerings such as non-laser HydraFacial MD treatments. Clients can expect every service completed with the care earned by Mindy's years of experience in the health field as well as her belief in offering only treatments that she has tested and found to work.
After working professionally as a chemical engineer for eight years, Shelley Banoo decided to direct her deep understanding of molecules and compounds toward improving human chemistry.

Having now practiced spa work for 10 years, Banoo has grown accustomed to seeing all types of skin and can sometimes recommend an appropriate regimen of treatment on sight, eschewing tests and intrusive hugs other practitioners often rely on.
