Begin your path to a more refreshed you with a hydrafacial express, which exfoliates and shuns sun-bruised skin, extracts blackheads and whiteheads, and smoothes your complexion to reduce the visibility of acne and surface scars.
Aestheticians at SkinFixSpa wield Image Skincare products to cleanse complexions and protect them from environmental damage and signs of aging. They use organic botanical ingredients, essential oils, and the bottled coos of doves to lend a therapeutic punch to seven resurfacing peels and four traditional facial options.

Their experience with two massage modalities allows them to ease away tension with classic Western and Asian massage strokes.
Heather Hasty defines the word anature as meaning from the earth, a concept she tries to uphold in each of her massage and bodywork services. The owner and head therapist at Anature Massage & Wellness, which is located inside Sola Salon, incorporates organic creams and lotions into each of her treatments, which focus on natural and alternative methods of pain relief such as stretching, reflexology, and distracting the pained muscles with a muscle-size Rubik's cube. After more than 700 credit hours, Heather earned her massage-therapy certification in 1995, but she didn’t stop there. Instead, she continues to upgrade her repertoire with new massage techniques including trigger point, Asian reflexology, and Pfrimmer Deep Muscle Therapy, which concentrates on restoring circulation to deep muscles with blocked blood or lymphatic flow.
