Helmed by owner Jeanie Chaney, Jeanie's Salon And Day Spa is an oasis of beauty and pampering. Her staff of stylists, massage therapists, and aestheticians tends to the hair and skincare needs of ladies and gents alike, offering a full menu of cuts, color treatments, facials, and massages.

At Back to Nature Health and Wellness Center, leading practitioner Argo Duenas's deep belief in the benefits of holistic healing took her off the path of traditional medical nursing two decades ago and redirected her journey toward certification in colonic hygiene, reflexology, and energy adjustment. Inside her clean, homey, brick-fronted clinic, Duenas relies on drug-free methods such as reiki, colon hydrotherapy, and ear candling to purge the body of toxins and attempt to alleviate ailments ranging from digestive disorgers to chronic fatigue. Argo also teaches body awareness, and preventative wellness through lectures and seminars.
Vincent Wright snipped his first bang in his uncle’s barbershop in 1963, and that bit of creativity went on to became his lifelong passion. He later went on to study at the Vidal Sassoon Academy in London, perfecting his styling techniques so much that he was invited to join the faculty. Eventually, he returned to Maryland, where he opened Ascension Salon and Spa in 1988.
And his shears haven’t slowed down since. He and his team of stylists trim, style, and color hair, while their aesthetician allies cleanse skin with facials or paint nails in lacquer, Shellac, or tiny oil portraits of Renaissance beauties. On the spa side, massages knead away tension in 30- to 90-minute sessions and aromatherapy treatments extend calm feelings into the air you breathe.
After more than 25 years spent promoting and practicing wellness, Jandel Benjamin can untie nearly any knot a muscle can get itself into. The nutritionist and massage therapist draws on a wealth of knowledge to relieve pain and improve circulation during Swedish and deep-tissue massages. Benjamin’s talents stretch far beyond these traditional modalities, encompassing specialty techniques such as lymphatic drainage, reflexology, and hot-stone therapy. There’s even a modality tailored specifically to expectant mothers. This pregnancy massage combines strokes and kneads to relieve back pain and tap out lullabies in Morse code.
