At Flow Natural Health Care, Dr. Marsha Hamilton mixes the healing principals of natural medicine with the sciences of modern medical treatments, including Arvigo techniques for Maya abdominal therapy. During each 60-minute Maya abdominal-therapy-massage treatment, a licensed practitioner gently rubs and applies pressure to abdominal and pelvic regions to improve circulatory flow and reduce internal constriction. Men benefit from pressure point therapy on bladders and surrounding nether regions, while gastrointestinal highways are noninvasively relieved of traffic bottlenecks. Through a series of repositioning tactics, women's ornery uteruses get equally assuaged, relieving pain related to monthly cycles, endometriosis, and menopausal-related perils.

Pure Elements Salon & Spa uses all-natural Aveda products on clients from head to toe. The company also follows through with Aveda's green mission to beautify without harming the earth. The skilled staff members peruse Aveda's robust selection of eco-consciously harvested serums, shampoos, and lotions as they prepare for a range of spa services that includes hair, skin, massage, makeup, and nail treatments for both men and women. Nail technicians exfoliate feet with an all-natural sea-salt scrub before polishing toes. Massage therapists use natural elements during the hydra-stone massage, which, as its name suggests, incorporates both water and hot stones to make muscles as loose as a procrastination club’s meeting times. Aestheticians slough dulling dead skin cells from the face with microdermabrasion, facials, and glycolic peels. Clients can mix and match a combination of Pure Elements’ services to build extra-long spa packages or bridal packages to spiff up ladies on their big days.
The MVP haircut is reserved for guys who want the brawn of a chiseled cut with the extreme adrenaline rush of a pleasant pampering. Following careful instructions or expert intuition, stylists can clean up the edges without sacrificing any degree of edginess.

Licensed massage therapist Michelle Dusek helps clients of all shapes and sizes overcome the stresses of modern life. Michelle believes that because all bodies are built slightly differently, massages need to be fluid. For this reason, she conforms to an infinite number of body shapes like somebody who makes coffins for snowflakes.
Michelle works equally hard to keep clients comfortable throughout each session. During deep-tissue, trigger-point, or stretching sessions, clients relax on a thickly padded massage bed surrounded with glowing lanterns and potted plants. A large window admits cascades of natural light, letting clients' half-open lids keep tabs on the outside world.
