Before developing Elite Ceuticals Non Surgical Face Lift, the owner spent more than 20 years formulating skincare products for other companies. Armed with that experience, she creates skincare blends that stimulate and revive aging skin with aloe vera that's grown hydroponically—that is, fed a regimen of minerals and vitamins and never treated with pesticides or put through a laminating machine.
During her time spent managing Tuscan Sky Hair Salon and Massage, Yvette Barlow has tackled a sweeping variety of hair care problems. She has tamed frizzy and unruly curls with advanced keratin smoothing treatments and transformed lifeless locks into glamorous up-dos. The seasoned stylist has also performed the once-impossible feat of coaxing stubborn tangles out of the hair of restless children and snipping up cute new styles. She begins every service with an initial consultation to discuss desired looks, address concerns, and interpret any hairspray-related dreams. Yvette and her team of stylists operate out of a spacious salon, where lofty front windows bathe the hardwood floors in warm sunlight.
For an Air Force veteran, Eric Green is awfully comfortable straying into unfamiliar territory. Stationed in Florida, Green took up the practice of reiki, a healing method that deals with a subject that's fascinated him since adolescence: the flow of energy. Today, as a certified Reiki Master, Green practices Usui and Tibetan-style reiki, using strategic hand positions to relax the body, diminish stress, and promote overall health. Green customizes his reiki treatments for each client, sometimes relying on Hayashi hand positions, sometimes turning to hands-off techniques, and sometimes chit-chatting about his old scoutmaster, Mr. Tim, if the client was in his old scout troop and remembers Mr. Tim. Green also offers training for all levels of reiki, including Reiki Master.

For Maya Zahira, belly-dancing is both an activity and a prescription. She views the dance as a healing act that can affect the mind as well as the body and has personally reaped its many benefits—practicing the art helped her to lose 100 pounds. Today, she leads private, semiprivate, and group lessons for all skill levels. Her classes are geared toward women of every age and build because Maya maintains a safe, positive setting for rehearsing sinuous techniques. Regardless of each pupil's experience, she strives to build their sense of confidence and poise simultaneously.
Weekly class series highlight beginning and intermediate choreography and outfit dancers with props such as hip scarves, finger cymbals, and, for advanced protégés, a second belly on their back. During Slow Burn Bellydance sessions, Maya shifts her attention to strengthening core muscles with the dance's hypnotizing isolations. She can target her private classes and workshops toward specific goals, whether clients want to perfect their arm work or learn to twirl with veils; she also performs at special events from birthday parties to wedding receptions.
