Do you agree with the phrase "beauty is on the inside?" Why or why not?
I do. It goes along with the saying, "Don't judge a book its cover." We do it all the time, whether we notice it or not. My best friend almost wasn't my friend at all because I had decided that because she was so beautiful on the outside, there was no way she was beautiful on the inside. As it turns out, she is one of the most caring and loving people I know. There are all kinds of people out there. If we don't take the time to know them, then we have failed not only ourselves, but our future generations.
What's the most common beauty mistake you see people make? What would you recommend they do instead?
It's the fact that some people don't wash their faces or they use regular body soap to do it. Being a massage therapist, I take care of the body and soul. Being a Mary Kay consultant, I take care of skin. The skin on your face is more delicate and has a different reaction to what you use on your body. You need something that is formulated for your face to take care of any problems that you might have.
What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a client?
When they told me that I made them feel human again. It broke my heart that they had experienced so much pain during their recovery and then after. Their doctors couldn't find a way to relieve their pain, but I did. It made my day to see a big smile on their face.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
I love to talk and to get to know new people. So if you come in for a treatment and would like peace and quiet, just let me know before hand. My goal is to help you relieve stress, not to cause more of it.

Stepping into Nadwa Hair Spa is almost like stepping onto a movie set for a futuristic film: bright overhead lights shine across metallic accents and row upon row of high-tech hair-dryers and styling gadgets. Inside this innovative space, owner and master stylist Nadwa Yono puts forth her training from the renowned Trevor Sorbie of London to pamper and style both men and women. The stylist and her crew sling products from Pureology, Aquage, and Morrocan Oil as they snip and color locks or weave extensions, wigs, or second faces into hair. Aestheticians and massage therapists set up camp in secluded mint-hued rooms, where they wax away unwanted fuzz, tailor facials to treat acne, aging, or sun-damaged skin, and tenderize sore muscles with deep-tissue and hot-stone massages.
Massage therapist Danielle Ball received her certification from the Clarkston Institute of Massage Therapy in 2009, and has since partnered with Believe Salon & Spa to start her own practice, Pure Relaxation Massage. To pair with her specialty Swedish and deep-tissue bodywork, Danielle utilizes the Young Living brand of essential body oils with soothing essences of lavender, lemon, and peppermint. After shoulders melt under the sultry heat of a hot-stone massage, guests can question Danielle about her travel bodywork services to enjoy massages on-the-go without the hassle of stowing a massage therapist in a carry-on bag before flights.
At The Body Center.us, specialists Marcella Clark and Jeannine Proulx detox their client's physiques. However, their preferred methodology is different. Marcella specializes in therapeutic yoga, massage, and colon therapy, which clears waste from the lower intestine with triple-filtered water. Jeannine, meanwhile, focuses on reiki, a hands-off massage style geared towards manipulating the client's energy field.
