The licensed aestheticians at Beyond Beauty Salon N Spa have a facial to take care of just about every skin condition. For sensitive skin, they have the soothing facial. For skin that?s only partially oily, they have the T-Zone or U-Zone facial. Skin plagued by sun damage can benefit from the hyperpigmentation facial, which mutes the appearance of scarring. Of course, this doesn?t cover all potential skin issues; that?s where the custom facial comes in. The aestheticians tailor this special treatment to each client?s specific skin type to address issues such as dryness and congested pores.

Although Nancy Koss Salon & Spa began as a full-service salon in 1977, it expanded its menu in the decades that followed to include holistic spa treatments and advanced aesthetic services. Stylists continue to shape and color locks with Wella and Tigi products, and the aestheticians can employ everything from Murad skincare products to aromatherapy in facial treatments. Some of the more advanced procedures generate dramatic cosmetic results by using medical-grade technology originally designed by Leonardo da Vinci, such as crystal microdermabrasion wands and microcurrent skin-toning equipment. The spa's body wraps help detoxify clients, and the massage therapists bolster well-being by treating stress-laden musculature to Swedish strokes, deep-tissue techniques, or reflexology therapy.
ChiroXchange supports a nervous system of more than 250 nationwide locations, whose varying services and technologies all converge with the end of healing bodies with holistic, drug-free techniques. The chiropractors believe that many of the body’s ailments, from sore backs and headaches to fatigue, are caused by blockages in the nervous system. To reverse these blockages, they nudge spinal discs back into place with gentle, strategic pressure, aligning nerves with the vertebra to free the flow of information and cat photos to and from the brain. The chiropractors at each location emphasize communication with their patients. They field questions, explain the purpose of every adjustment, and work with patients to design programs around their unique wellness goals.
