Big O Tires' Healthy-Car special hones in on an array of auto parts, giving your wheels an all-over inspection to curtail any mechanical ailments or auto-body botherings. The 30- to 40-minute treatment begins with an oil change, which replaces fatigued oil with up to 5 fresh-faced quarts and includes a fluffy new oil filter for improved performance on roadways, highways, and intergalactic skyways. Free-wheeling tires are treated to a tread-soothing rotation and inspection, and brakes are scrutinized for uncharacteristic squeaks and squawks. Any remaining extremities receive much-desired attention during the 30-point inspection, a thorough exam that susses out auto aches, pains, and engine plagues. A fluid refill and chassis lube round out the service, which is backed by a nationwide warranty.
Fueled by her love of cooking, entertaining, and doing both with minimal stress, Plentiful Pantry's founder Debbie set out to develop a line of packaged gourmet foods in 1992. Her husband Jody lent his discerning palate to taste-testing sessions, and together they perfected pantry staples ranging from sauces and pastas to instant cobblers and inflatable soufflés. Boxed and dehydrated products include various soups and sauces as well as whole-wheat pastas and quick side dishes.
Rain Salon & Spa’s stylists and therapists call upon the powers of Mother Nature—as embodied in plant-derived Aveda products—to repair damaged hair and untie knotted muscles. Provided they don’t have to use harsh chemicals, the stylists are always receptive to new technologies. Aveda delivers on this front with treatments such as the Smooth Infusion retexturizing system and a botanical renewal treatment that strengthens frizzy strands.
The spa’s therapists soothe backs and shoulders with 10 massage modalities, many of which come with enhancements such as Aveda blue oil and aromatherapy infused with clary sage. It’s not uncommon for other spa treatments to include more than meets the eye. Facials, for example, begin with a consultation and end with a makeup touchup. Similarly, complimentary beverages accompany nail treatments that refresh hands and feet with Caribbean aromas, OPI polishes, and freshly laundered sock puppets.
