Colon Care Center's proprietor, Rosie Machette, oversees the withdrawal of toxins from bodily systems via holistic treatments such as ion-charged foot baths, FAR infrared sauna sessions, and colon hydrotherapy. She also boosts her clients' health with massage therapy, nutrition counseling, and ear candling—all of which uphold the old adage that "an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure," made famous by Ben Franklin and later appropriated by the oft-injured Wile E. Coyote.
Yarn Shop and More unspools a snuggly superabundance of fine yarns alongside an array of knitting and crocheting supplies, notions, books, and a lineup of technique-based classes. Embark on woolly adventures in tutorials such as Knitting 101—Knit and Purl or Knitting 102—Oops–Knitting Disaster, which teach the basics of casting on, knitting, purling, and repairing rookie mistakes with forgiving aplomb ($25 each). For hardy needle-wielders, private-session classes instill wisdom in realms such as the left-hand-focused Continental Knitting ($25) and Design Your Own Sweater ($30), where wool wearers can create their own pattern using Sweater Wizard software in place of an obsolete Rumpelstiltskin. Knitting students are required to bring their own supplies to all classes and may choose to cull them from the shop's well-stocked shelves of skeins that are arranged by color, weight, fiber, and zodiac sign.
Fine Arts Theatres? four venues surround moviegoers with classic silver-screen ambiance as they present the latest independent and mainstream film offerings. Lovingly refurbished neighborhood movie palaces such as the early-20th-century Rio Theatre now boast surround-sound digital audio, high-backed rocker seats with arm-mounted cup holders, and movie trailers acted out by gregarious ticket takers.

Makeup artist and licensed aesthetician Chavon Swartz tends to the faces that walk down runways, appear on television, and visit her salon, Adorn Beautique. Inside the newly remodeled salon, Chavon and her staff pamper their clients from head to toe. They exfoliate skin during custom facials, wax brows, and even apply lash extensions that make customers look more alluring and less threatening to camels. Additionally, custom airbrush tans bronze every inch of exposed skin.
The state-licensed technicians at iNail Artistry & Spa are neatniks when it comes to health and hygiene in their salon. In addition to sterilizing all reusable implements, they never use blades to slice away calluses or nail clippings. They work to reduce staff and client exposure to malevolent fumes and carefully assess the nail health before beginning treatments.
The staff sets itself apart from other nail crews by offering reflexology pedicures, which use precisely applied pressure to specific areas of the feet to stimulate different body organs or nerves, and it has been known to help with vascular disease and arthritis.
Grace Designs & Esthetics’ skincare professionals upgrade the health and look of skin with face and body treatments performed inside a newly renovated space adorned with modern accents. While the spa’s makeup artists expertly camouflage imperfections, aestheticians work to correct their underlying causes with facials that rehabilitate dry, aging, or smart-mouthing skin.
