Also available from the team are non-surgical treatments including Botox, Juvederm, and Restylane, and surgical treatments including rhinoplasty, face lifts, and neck lifts.
Rita Ammons still doesn't quite believe it. In 1987, she was in a serious car accident that left her suffering with severe pain from nerve damage. A friend recommended reiki as a healing practice, and within time, Ammons found that it worked—the treatments seemed to heal her. Amazed and inspired, she became a master reiki practitioner herself, eventually expanding her expertise into massage and opening her own practice, Back to Harmony Massage & Bodywork.
Now a licensed massage therapist, Ammons offers treatments in 10 modalities, from relaxing Swedish massages to medical massages that help treat ailments including back pain, headaches, and arthritis. She also seeks to heal guests through reiki and to soothe backs with hot-stone massages, which are far more relaxing than hugging a furnace.

While working as a sales executive for two of the top hearing-aid manufacturers, Nancy Jablonski quickly realized that the people who most needed her products were those who often found it difficult to travel to audiology centers. She established Audiology Concierge as a means to correct this problem, and today, she and her staff travel to homes to perform exams, suggest solutions, and fit custom hearing aids. For the latter, she has been able to access desirable pricing thanks to her years spent as an industry insider.
