Rebecca Rowell's private massage room is an oasis of relaxation amidst the hustle and bustle of Krazy Nails, Hair & Body Shop. Here, Rebecca works to banish aches and stress with her specialties of Swedish and deep-tissue massage.

The learned team of doctors and therapists at Avanti Health assuage chronic discomfort, pain from personal injury, and other health conditions with chiropractic and massage services. Before dipping into the dim, cozy treatment rooms, clients step into the Avanti Health office, which is illuminated by floor-to-ceiling windows that cast natural light upon a marble-top reception desk, verdant potted plants, and shadows giving each other massages. Fully dedicated to patrons' overall wellness, the staff also helps patrons shed excess pounds with programs for medical weight loss, dieting, and exercise.
Renew Mind & Body Spa, a cozy spa that is ensconced by greenery, small waterfalls, and ponds and filled with soothing, warmly lit rooms, hosts a team of licensed massage therapists who train healing hands on strained spines and taxed tendons. During the one-hour Swedish massage, Renew's muscle menders relax sinews, attenuate tension, and put stress to sleep with a combination of relaxing massage techniques and droning lectures on the inception of moist towelettes. Fluid strokes and varying pressures encourage muscle malleability, boosting circulation and bodies’ natural healing processes.
Given the name, it should come as no surprise that Elements Therapeutic Massage pays extra attention to the basic elements of massage. One of these is compassion, and it follows that the staff takes care to match each client with the therapist best suited for the job. Borrowing from different modalities, therapists calibrate each session to one of four distinct levels of pressure. These levels encompass everything from gentle strokes to deeper trigger-point work and may relieve ailments such as stress, chronic aches, and shoulders stuck in a permanent, perplexing shrug.
True Colors Salon's owner recently remodeled the place, adding modern texture and color to all the furnishings. Stylists perform much the same service upon peoples' hair, creating new looks for their clients. Meanwhile, therapists sooth muscular tension with massages, and technicians shape nails and paint them with unique nail art. Chazidie Lane adds even more variety to the services with her specialized skin treatments that restore moisture to winter-weather- or sun-damaged skin. She combines her facials with hair removal, shaping eyebrows or removing lip fuzz with the aid of hot wax.
