Dawn Kelley is a member of the American Massage Therapy Association and the massage therapist at Active Elements Massage. With the knowledge that each body is unique, she personalizes her treatments to accommodate each client’s aches, pains, and dog tattoos that need their bellies rubbed. She offers relaxation and therapeutic massages, the latter of which incorporates modalities such as myofacial release, stretching, and deep tissue in order to balance out the body and muscles. Then there’s the polar massage, a sojourn through bliss that includes a sugar scrub and hot towel wrap for the feet and a face, head, and neck massage.
OM SPA's founder Omar Holmes began his career as a health and fitness coach. He first became aware of massage as a way to help his clients recover from or prevent injuries, but the more he learned about it, the more interested he became. Eventually, he realized he had a passion for the technique, and enrolled at the American Academy of Reflexology to being his education. He still uses the Flocco Method of reflexology in treatments, combining treatments of the hand, foot, and ear to relax the entire body. He rounds out his techniques with modalities such as Swedish, deep tissue, and lymphatic drainage.

Some people wear their jewels on their ring fingers; others wear them on their fingernails. The artists at Art Nails & Eyelash Spa can do classic mani-pedis, but they're especially adept at creating tiny, glittery works of art that incorporate 3-D gems and metallic swirls. Other aestheticians apply nearly weightless eyelash extensions one by one, and massage therapists use hot stones or simply their own talented hands to induce relaxation.
