Terrie Klotz originally attended beauty school in 1993, but her unending penchant for new knowledge has repeatedly led her back to school, expanding her expertise to new areas. At Miss. Alter Ego, she beautifies clients with her thorough training in airbrush tanning, facials, nail services, and waxing.

Growing up in rural Oregon, Shane immersed himself in magazines and television and became amazed by the trends popular outside his own sleepy town. But his interest in style did not bubble up completely until many years later, when he left a successful career in finance to pursue his true passion in life.
Now an experienced hairstylist and nail technician, Shane personally tests each product on the market before it ever touches his clients? nails or hair. Using styling products by Schwarzkopf Professional hair care, he creates cutting edge cuts, colors, and updos. And when it comes to nails, he reaches for OPI Laquer or soak-off gel polish to create nail art that could include polka dots, flowers, or tiny celebrity mug shots.
Though multiple physical heads would perhaps cause concern in most chiropractors, the pair behind Shephard Clinic of the Chiropractic Arts work to prove that two individual heads are better than one. The two Doctors of Chiropractic here each have a separate focus, leading to a broader and more in-depth base of knowledge and skills. Dr. Tomaino works extensively with the nervous system, using controlled-force adjustment methods to maximize its function, and Dr. Gerhart’s understanding of soft-tissue injuries and exercise mechanics make him particularly well-suited to assisting cyclists and pedestrians injured by out-of-control cars or rogue Segways.

The spa?s signature mani-pedis leave nails trim and refined, incorporating everything from salt scrubs and sea clay masks to warm herbal towel treatments, creating an indulgent spa experience. Additionally, the staff performs classic facials, foot massages and reflexology sessions, and waxing treatments that use hard or soft waxes and withering glares to get rid of unwanted stubble.
