Their noninvasive techniques can help patients move past concerns such as carpal tunnel syndrome or knee pain, while acupuncture services provide another GPS-free route to whole-body wellness. The specialists can also help clients seeking lasting weight-loss solutions, either through contouring laser lipo treatments and calorie-burning whole-body vibration, or with nutrition services. A team of massage therapists and Reiki practitioners are also on hand, ensuring muscles stay relaxed and free from square knots.

Inside Color and Hair Connection's light, eggshell-hued walls dotted with eastern calligraphy, Brenda A. Vernon calms rebellious follicles with relaxing blowout treatments. During each of four doting sessions, stylists begin whipping hair into shape with a lathering, restorative shampoo and a demand that each follicle do a single pull-up. Then heads heat up under the soft hum of a blow-dryer, where manes shed their moisture and gain a luxurious shine. Finally, hair tamers transform unruly locks into well-mannered coifs, styling elegant 'dos for upcoming dates, evenings on the town, or parties to celebrate a pet's promotion to honorary child.
Natural light pours through Textures Hair Salon’s large front windows, illuminating polished wood floors and buttery yellow walls.
