Inside the Open Marketplace mall, Aqua Massage and More tucks visitors into cushioned capsules for quick, soothing sessions at the hands of 36 automated jets. Percussive blasts of warm H2O buffet bodies from ankle to shoulder with gentle physical contact that goes beyond the reach of two hands or a misappropriated rolling pin. A protective impermeable liner separates patients from the watery jets so they won't have to worry about disrobing or getting wet.
Best friends Kimberly Reneé and Paris Chanel started Blush Me Beautiful to share their knack for makeup with fellow Memphis ladies. Catering not just to brides but to anyone in need of a little pampering, Kimberly and Paris customize looks for each client. Services are available à la carte—clients can come in just for brow shaping, for instance—and in the form of full-face makeovers. To brush up on cosmetic skills of their own, some patrons even enroll in the duo's private makeup classes.

Inside Epiphany Salon and Gallery, natural light cascades from a wall of floor-to-ceiling windows, illuminating styling chairs, paintings, and paintings of styling chairs. While stylists create artful hairstyles with products by Farouk and Biolage, clients can browse a collection of jewelry, paintings, and sculptures in the attached gallery, which raises funds for nonprofit organizations and features the artwork of local artists. Free parking is available for customers.
Owner and licensed massage therapist Josee Knecht promotes well-being through holistic and medical massage therapies, body-contouring treatments, and lifestyle advice gleamed during her days as a certified paramedic and nurse's assistant. With advanced training in lypossage and Medilift body contouring, Knecht assists clients as they pursue reductions in waistlines, cellulite visibility, and visits from door-to-door encyclopedia salesmen. Knecht also beautifies bodies with spray-tan applications and laser hair-removal treatments backed by her certification from the Laser Institute of America.
Soft candlelight illuminates Massage Bug's array of private treatment rooms, where licensed massage therapists use structured touch to ease muscle tension and pain. Some treatment spaces include a miniature fireplace filling the room with warmth, while others allow clients to relax as tiny fountains grant catches to tiny fishermen. Staff members welcome clients into the lobby with complimentary bottled water and tea, although the therapists can also travel beyond the spa's walls to give chair massages at parties and health fairs.
