Her online portfolio includes creative nail designs that pay homage to cupcakes, holidays, cartoon characters, animals, and entire novels by Proust. Steffani’s services include manicures and pedicures that she upgrades with french tips and chip-resistant gel polish. All of Steffani's pedicures include a foot massage, and she also offers seasonal services such as lemon manicures and pumpkin pedicures.

She draws on her extensive colonic experience and combines other therapies, such as herbology, meditation, and oriental medicine, to proper digestive health, which is critical to overall wellness and hotdog eating contests.
Darkness and empty space stretch to infinity, and your increasingly visceral thoughts seem to expand to fill it up. Of course, the actual space inside Drop of Calm's sensory-deprivation tank isn't endless; it's actually quite cozy, small enough to "play a bit of pong with yourself bouncing from wall to wall." But as clients float on the surface of the Epsom salt–infused, body-temperature water inside, they may as well be floating weightlessly beyond the solar system's distant Oort cloud for all the peace and quiet they're afforded during relaxation sessions.
