When the stylists at Hair Candy Salon & Spa look at a head of hair, they see nothing but stylish possibilities. Depending on the client, they might add dimension with partial highlights, lengthen hair with extensions, or use keratin treatments to tame stubborn frizz and curls. Once they've transformed manes, the beauty experts turn their attention to the rest of the body. They wax unwanted hair and smooth skin with more than a dozen facial treatments, including a therapeutic pumpkin mask with the same nutrients that keep jack-o'-lanterns from ever getting pimples. In addition to these services, the staff uses FDA-approved lasers to prevent and reverse hair loss.
Herbal Concept's compresses and body wraps are filled with a soothing blend of 12 aromatic herbs, including lavender and chamomile, and natural grains that maintain their temperature long after being microwaved or stored in a freezer. Each of their mittens, booties, neck wraps, and back compresses boasts a soft, fleecy exterior in a choice of eight hues, while an eco-friendly line remains the natural shade of their organic marshmallow fibers.
Minimal packaging is used in wrapping IQ Natural’s all-natural serums, just one of the staff’s many demonstrations of eco-consciousness. They operate on a five-tier commitment to organic ingredients, ensuring that all products are free from unwholesome fillers, parabens, or multiple-choice test questions for animals. Many items are vegan.
From among the product lines, peels, masks, and toners set complexions aglow under mineral makeup that's culled from deep inside the earth’s cosmetic counter. Massage oils and scrubs render softer, smoother skin, and specially formulated baby products leave freshly scented tots in their wakes.

Amanda Ruley was inspired to help heal others through massage therapy by her mother, who struggled every day with multiple sclerosis and found respite in massage and acupuncture. Mary Boyd found her passion for therapy working in behavioral management with at-risk youth. Though these two followed different paths to discover massage, their mission is the same: to soothe body, mind, and spirit with the therapeutic benefits of physical contact. Each massage is customized to the client’s individual needs, incorporating Swedish and deep-tissue techniques to boost circulation and sports bodywork to improve range of motion in muscles or remove stubborn foam fingers.
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.
