After ringing in the New Year by reopening in a new, spic-and-span storefront, Skin Deep Salon & Spa continues to transform neglected nails into the crowning glory of their digits. The full spa manicure trims talons, nudges overreaching cuticles into line, and coats newly smooth nail surfaces in a color that matches your mood. Those who choose to treat their toes can opt for the spa pedicure, relieving calluses built up by months of squeezing feet into stiletto clown shoes. Skin Deep offers its full menu of salon and spa services from a streamlined aesthetic atelier bedecked in dark wood tones and set aglow by floor-to-ceiling windows. After the treatment, toes emerge tapping and hands head out high-fiving any acquaintance or passing squirrel they meet.
Specializing in Swedish, pregnancy, and sports massage, licensed massage therapist Melissa Ertle tailors sessions held within Bakeris Family Chiropractic. She taps into her vast experience working at senior-living communities and athletic rehab training centers to help alleviate pain, boost circulation, and keep muscles loose.
One of the main contributing factors that makes Dr. Chris Jacobi such a successful chiropractor is that he's been involved with athletics for most of his life. Playing several sports in high school and college helped him better understand how the body works and how the muscles interconnect - experience that he applies to everyone he treats. With that base of knowledge to inspire him, he went on to earn his doctorate of chiropractic degree before entering the field and to establish a practice that focuses on connecting with clients on a personal level to fulfill their unique needs. As his practice has grown, so have his treatments, which now encompass mechanical massage to help relax muscles, stretching and strengthening exercises, as well as chiropractic adjustments.

Appointments commence with free consultations, and coiffeurs accommodate busy schedules.
Licensed massage therapist Caitrin Rames, LMT, specializes in shiatsu bodywork, a form of massage that focuses on balancing the body's chi in order to treat internal ailments and imbalances. Rooted in traditional Chinese medicine, shiatsu massage employs focused pressure along the body's meridians to heal backs strained from kneeling in rice paddies or from pole vaulting over the Great Wall. In addition to her flagship shiatsu technique, Caitrin also soothes muscles with cranial-sacral-release therapy and pregnancy massages for expectant mothers.
