As a physical therapist with his own private practice, Hand & Stone founder and chief operating officer John Marco made sure that he kept abreast of the rapidly growing health and wellness industry. After a period of careful research and planning, John decided to create a spa based around convenience and affordability—Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa.
Since its launch, Hand & Stone has expanded to more than 20 states and four planets. The spa’s core concept is to offer massage, facial, and hair-removal services performed by licensed, certified, or registered professionals and offered at convenient times, seven days a week. Each location adheres to a traditional spa aesthetic with soft lighting, heated treatment tables, and plush linens.
High End Barbershop & Salon opened as a modest 390-square-foot shop in 2003 and has since expanded to nearly three times the size. Hoping to expand their expertise and attention to detail as well, owner Richie Garcia and his scissor-wielding staff sculpt new 'dos for men, women, and children. Highlights, extensions, and keratin treatments beautify women's hairstyles and hot-towel shaves prevent overgrown beards from violating city-zoning regulations.
The rustic stone façade of Peace Nails & Spa belies the modern techniques used within to beautify skin and nails. Clients look at ranks of traditional and gel polishes on a mosaic-decorated display before swiveling in manicure stations’ royal blue chairs. Cushioned pedicure chairs help patrons relax as staffers buff away calluses or treat feet to lavender and aloe treatments. While emery boards rasp quietly, classic or french pedicures leave feet beautiful for when you don flip-flops or realize nobody can see if you’re wearing shoes behind a news desk. The shelves at the shop also brim with waxes for removing hair from faces, appendages, and bikini areas.
Nicole Wilkins, owner of Acupressure Massage Center of Morristown, trained in Thailand and studied at the Cortiva Institute before dedicating herself to bodywork. Now boasting a decade of experience, she leads a team of therapists who promote health and wellbeing through precision massage sessions. They untangle brawny knots with modalities such as Swedish, deep-tissue, and sports massage, and target bodily systems with reflexology techniques and manual lymphatic drainage. Regular clients cite the sessions as the source of increased wellness indicators ranging from reduced stress and decreased anxiety to improved circulation and more accurate Stretch Armstrong impersonations.

The friendly staffers at Aura Salon Spa work their pampering wizardry in a large, modern space. The 30-minute express pedicure kicks off with a sole-softening soak, preparing feet to meet with the buffer and file. Next, cuticles and calluses are removed, stems are moisturized, and tootsies are topped with enough shiny color to garner envy from the Las Vegas Strip. The 30-minute basic manicure converts nails from their natural state of corporate-ladder-climbing claws to elegant, unruffled shapes. Cuticle care and a candy-colored coating complete turkey-stencil transformation.
