Behind the red-brick walls of Knoxville Therapeutic Massage, licensed massage therapist Jessica Howard deflects stress with relaxing Swedish techniques. These smooth, gentle kneads allow sinews to uncoil and the body's energy to flow freely. To get tight limbs moving again, Jessica applies concentrated deep-tissue techniques and hot towels. She also offers aromatherapy—soothing smells that ease mental tension because nostrils are basically the brain's ears.
Salon Alere’s stylists battle the unchecked growth of facial frames, using years of experience and quality products to sculpt desired results. Scissor-wielding virtuosos trim and tidy skull curtains to exact specifications while customers considering a new look for high-school reunions and mug-shot photos may opt for the KeraGreen keratin-smoothing treatment. KeraGreen contains no formaldehyde, and instead utilizes purified water, olive oil, and hydrolyzed silk to leave hair straightened and unable to trigger olfactory-related memories of freshman biology. Salon Alere also imparts its wisdom with complimentary hair consultations that aid patrons in achieving salon results within their own domiciles.
Sophia’s Salon tranquilizes tension in the Knoxville area with a dulcifying menu of salon services.

Smile-A-Nu provides teeth-whitening services to erase telltale signs of tar-chewing contests and catching paintballs in your mouth. After comparing the current shade of your teeth with a shade-guide comparison chart, a Smile-A-Nu technician will assist you in applying hydrogen peroxide gel directly onto each mouth bone while ensuring minimal spilloff onto gums. Peroxide concentrations vary between treatments. In the traditional treatment, a gel is applied to a tray that’s placed in the mouth and worn under an LED light for 30 minutes, while in the advanced treatment, customers don a cheek retractor, then apply gel directly to teeth themselves before a 15-minute LED light shines brightness into dull incisors.
The licensed massage therapist at Balance and Tranquility employs the healing power of touch to release trapped muscle tension and improve well-being during relaxing one-hour massages. Once clients undress to their comfort level and shimmy beneath a modest cloth, they will be immersed in the soothing scents of oils and candles, as well as musical strains more relaxing than a whale humming Debussy. Next, the therapist's expert hands unleash the long, flowing strokes of Swedish massage or the targeted pressure of deep-tissue massage. Each technique's kneading helps unblock circulatory traffic jams, loosen stiffness in rusty joints, and bring harmony to the musculoskeletal system. Today’s Groupons are nontransferable, so all massages must be used by the same person or troupe of shockingly lifelike mannequins.
Licensed massage therapist Dana Good has never performed the same massage twice. She believes cookie cutters should be left in the kitchen or hanging in doorways to mark gingerbread-man safe houses, and opts instead for a highly personalized treatment philosophy. She discusses each client's specific needs and medical history to create an optimal massage session, drawing upon more than a decade of experience with a wide variety of massage modalities and bodywork techniques. In an integrative massage, Good incorporates Swedish and deep-tissue pressure with styles such as myofascial or positional release, trigger-point therapy, as well as deep breathing and other relaxation exercises.
Good also offers pregnancy or sports massage for targeted relief and helps clients lead healthier lifestyles as a certified wellness coach specializing in weight loss and stress management. As a way to give back to the community, the caring therapist offers discounts for military personnel and first responders.
