Blowouts are popular for any kind of hair and can restore elasticity and softness to even the most stressed-out strands. Where a wrathful head octopus once suction-cupped stray scissors and cotton candy, a waterfall of must-be-touched feminine allure will cascade into place after the treatment. With your new, pulchritudinous mane, you'll be able to put silky lioness manes to shame at the zoo, or become an instant celebrity for hosting the first nesting pair of endangered Beauty Eagles, which only rear their young in the most gorgeous of 'dos. Thanks to their personal attention and creative touch, the skilled stylists at Phresh will channel this incredible transformation in the most pleasant possible manner.
After graduating from Fort Wayne’s own Center for Vital Living, Vicki Salzbrun opened her massage-therapy practice at the stunning Lotus Yoga, Wellness, & Gallery. With her 800 hours of massage study and 200 hours of training as a yoga instructor, Vicki fit right in with the center’s cooperative of wellness professionals, all of whom specialize in fields such as personal training, chiropractic care, yoga, and massage.
The huge, airy studio—whose walls hold numerous pieces of eclectic contemporary art—continues to serve as the home of Vicki’s massage-therapy business, Full Circle Wellness. Balancing this business with full-time studies at IPFW has taught her to attend to her own wellness as she shoos away stressors that arise from work and school. She imparts these stress-management skills to clients in wellness assessments that analyze the body and mind to help develop achievable lifestyle goals. To further demonstrate her breadth of knowledge, Vicki also heals energies with Japanese reiki therapy, guides students down meditative pathways during private yoga sessions, and periodically challenges her fellow yogis to interminable games of Twister.
At Relax.ology, licensed therapists and aestheticians carve out a quiet, tranquil space where their clients can indulge in holistic bodywork treatments.

The attentive massage therapists target tight muscles and soothe frayed nerves while facilitating optimal health and well-being, and they augment treatments with detoxifying foot soaks that use organic essential oils and special blends to coax contaminants from the body. Dry blood analysis and ionic foot detoxes are also available. Eyelash extensions and movie-star airbrush makeovers are also available from Relax.ology's resident makeup artist.
The 80-minute Minkyti facial is Woodhouse's signature anti-aging facial treatment for all skin types. The soothing, hydrating treatment combines customized nutrient-rich facial products with acupressure and connective-tissue facial massage to lift the skin and improve tone and is followed by an oxygenating mask that infuses the skin with trace elements and minerals. After the mask, skin appears youthful, smooth, and bright enough for political pundits to doubt its ability to lead, due to a visible lack of executive-experience shadows.
Inches Away Salon and Day Spa's professional staff swaddles clients in body-slimming bandages to help them to possibly lose 6–20 inches after a one-hour treatment. During a Slendertone body wrap, spa specialists gently wrap clients in mineral-soaked elastic bandages that help to expel irksome inches caused by metabolic waste, water retention, and mylar balloons accidentally swallowed at surprise parties. Spa-goers will perform a sequence of light exercises during the treatment to increase slenderization and improve circulation. The wrap can detoxify bodies, reduce the appearance of cellulite, and inject nutrients into soul husks faster than sleeping atop a salad bar.
