European Med Spa was established to give clients and friends an oasis to focus on one’s self, relax and nurture a person’s well being. Personal wellness is achieved through a lifestyle of exercise, healthy eating, rest, relaxation and grooming of the body and skin.
In 1942, a group of women decided that it could raise funds to improve the community. The initial projects included war-effort contributions, starting a children’s theater, and the Children’s Receiving Home of Sacramento. As the decades passed, the women expanded their outreach, and today the Junior League of Sacramento welcomes all women aged 21 and older to engage in volunteerism in the community. Among their many outreach efforts, the group assists nonprofits and community programs through charitable work and fundraising to help programs reach those in need.
The sun spills its hazy rays across tables arranged on Greek Village Inn’s outdoor patio. It’s in this warm, inviting atmosphere that diners slide into high-backed chairs to dig into authentic Greek fare such as gyros with tzatziki, moussaka layered with seasoned beef and béchamel, and flaky pieces of baklava. Chefs concoct all their traditional Mediterranean morsels with a flavorful blend of locally sourced items, including produce and meats, as well as imported Greek ingredients, such as feta cheese, kalamata olives, and extra-virgin olive oil. This dedication to assembling the best ingredients possible even helped earn the eatery accolades from Zagat and the manufacturers of World’s Greatest Grandpa coffee mugs.
More than a decade after creating her signature line of cosmetics, JanElizabeth cemented her commitment to facial beauty when she established The Perfect Eyebrow & Makeup Center in 2007. She leads her team with nearly 20 years of experience, which enables her to blend custom foundations to match clients' skin and determine the right shade to tint lashes and brows. Rather than follow an overarching philosophy of how eyebrows should look, JanElizabeth thickens, streamlines, and arches brows to enhance facial architecture or reflect the whims of the stock market. They offer makeup lessons on an individual basis.
Once upon a time, Swanson's Cleaners technicians would begin their days by firing up irons, stirring starches, and strapping on roller skates. The business was once one of the largest dry-cleaning facilities west of the Mississippi, the epicenter of Salvin Swanson's vast dry-cleaning empire—an empire packed with Sacramento's laundry, even the chain mail of its knights. To get the job of all this weighty laundry done, staffers needed their own wheels, plus wheels for their hampers.
Now helmed by the third generation of Swansons, the business has grown to 15 locations. In these locations, the team launders and dry-cleans garments with the eco-friendly Revive system, which uses a gentle, odorless, and antibacterial solution made from organic ingredients. Ever mindful of the earth and the community, Swanson's Cleaners recycles its hangers and plastic bags and has collected more than 27,000 coats for local children in need through its Coats for Kids program.
Plastic surgeon Dr. Craig E. Berris estimates that he's performed over 10,000 procedures over the course of his career. While that seems like a staggering number, this level of experience is the norm. Dr. Berris believes that physician designed skin care products and custom blended peels are the most effective treatments available and the Center's esthetician has over 25 years of experience in medical esthetics. Together at the Center for Cosmetic Eyelid and Laser Surgery, they keep faces looking ageless with services ranging from facials to surgery.
