Though their moniker implies a limited focus on only two treatments, the staff at The Lash & Wax Boutique has padded their aesthetic portfolio with far more services than just eyelash extensions and body waxing. Their classic and clarifying facials keep complexions smooth, and six assorted peels help fight signs of aging in delicious flavors such as blueberry and pomegranate. Spray tans, permanent-makeup applications, and long-lasting mink and synthetic lashes give the facility a spa-like feel. However, the real staff specialty is hair removal that reaches way beyond wax?the staff also banishes unwanted strands via threading and body sugaring, which is not only a gentler depilatory than wax, but receives a far warmer reception when accidentally dropped into a pot of coffee.
The massage therapists behind Body Therapy Group practice varied modalities based on their areas of expertise. Timarie Hansen has spent the past 15 years helping clients after vehicular and on-the-job accidents, whereas Karla Miller pulls double duty as she doles out therapeutic massages and heals clients’ energies and spirits as a reiki master. The final member of the team is aesthetician Jayme Williams, who is known for her Brazilian waxes.

Sometimes the little things make all the difference. Do you bake any supplementary services into your main services?
Come and experience a truly relaxing and invitingly deep massage. I strive to make my bodywork as relaxing as it is therapeutic. I blend several different styles such as, Swedish relaxation, deep-therapeutic relaxation, myofascial release, neuromuscular treatment, and aromatherapy into my massage to provide you with a profoundly relaxing and effective massage experience.
Because of the intensity and uniqueness of my work, I usually see no more than three or four clients a day to make sure that I can give you the best massage experience possible. I also leave you plenty of time after your massage to relax on the table and dress in a leisurely manner.
Do you use any products or brands you're particularly proud of? What makes them uniquely effective?
DoTERRA CPTG-certified pure therapeutic-grade essential oils are 100% pure, natural, aromatic compounds carefully extracted from plants. They do not contain fillers or artificial ingredients that would dilute their active qualities, and they are free of contaminants such as pesticides or other chemical residues.
What is the best reaction you?ve ever gotten from a client?
From a 90-years-young female client receiving her first massage as a gift from her daughter, "If heaven is anything like this, I am ready to go."
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
A fair portion of MassageBeneficial's mission is to empower my clients with tools for safe, effective self-care between visits. Most people cannot afford a massage everyday or even every time they feel the need. For those wishing to learn more about natural approaches to wellness and self-care, I offer private consultations and education around which essential oils or blends may be the most effective in supporting a client's individual emotional or physical concerns.
Founded 20 years ago by Dr. David Perlow, Any Lab Test Now boasts more than 100 centers nationwide where technicians administer thousands of standard lab tests priced to increase access and affordability for uninsured or low-income patients. Each location doubles as a draw center where technicians acquire the specimens necessary for popular services—including glucose readings, HIV screenings, and urinalysis—before sending them to an offsite laboratory for testing.
Any Lab Test Now respects the need for discretion, so each HIPAA-compliant test can be taken anonymously in certain instances. Results are often available within 24–48 hours, and can be mailed, faxed, picked up, or transmitted telepathically for ultimate confidentiality. Though the team doesn’t divulge any medical advice, results can also be passed on to primary-care physicians for further analysis.
Beyond Beauty is about much more than making clients feel beautiful. The staff also hope that their salon will serve as a restful sanctuary where customers can come to escape from everyday stressors for an hour or two. That's why, in addition to specialty services such as brow tinting and lash extensions, the spa menu is filled with treatments designed to relax and rejuvenated. Hot-stone massages, for example, use heated basalt rocks to melt tension along the spine and increase energy flow throughout the body, while pumpkin-enzyme facials take inspiration from mother nature's most handsome squash, and deliver a powerful dose of vitamins and antioxidants that leave skin looking brighter.
