At Massage Sanctuary, nationally certified massage therapist Brandon Woolard offers his clients the opportunity to relax and receive personalized massages in a soothing atmosphere. After initial consultations?complete with a box full of stress stones if customers need some preliminary unwinding?guests undress to their own comfort levels and fit between sheets, ready for calming massages. As he works, Brandon encourages his customers to speak up about comfort levels in case the heated table is too hot or the aromatherapy ostrich too pungent and squawking. Brandon soothes backs and muscles with a variety of modalities, incorporating Swedish, deep-tissue, sports, hot-stone, and aromatherapy methods into his massages. Afterward, complimentary mints and water rejuvenate the senses as customers, suspended in massage euphoria, go home, take hot baths or showers, and maintain relaxed states.

Sporting faux torches and animal skins on its walls, The Man Cave is committed to taking its title seriously. But its figurative meaning—a place where men can escape to let go of their stress—also applies. Here, barbers buzz or trim hair into neatened styles, often augmenting the service with a hot lather and towel shave. The cave is also a spa, with facials, back scrubs, and scalp massages that soothe the skin. As for mani-pedis, they don't come with polish, but they do include a complimentary jewelry cleaning and shoe shine.
