At the first rock 'n' roll–themed salon in Saginaw, stylists infuse the passion, edge, and authenticity of rock music into every spa and beauty service they perform. In the spacious salon, stylists and aestheticians beautify from the shoulders up by trimming locks into innovative styles, applying bold color and highlight treatments, and accenting faces with basic and airbrush makeup services. Rock Your Locks Salon offers on-location wedding beauty packages, and stylists will stay with wedding parties until the reception to apply last-minute touchups or give awkward, rambling toasts. In a dedicated massage room, clients melt into heated massage beds as therapists—who are certified in advanced medical and soothing Swedish massage—knead away aches and pains.
Owners Debra and Craig have built up for a diverse repertoire of skills in the natural health field, which they channel into their business, Alternative Health & Wellness. Since 1993, the pair has worked in health food stores and chiropractic offices, studied naturopathic health and homeopathy, and spent time learning the nuances of practicing massage, including using essential oils, herbs, color, sound, and music during sessions. While the versatile duo helps heal plenty of clients with their own hands, the center also houses more independent therapies, such as an infrared sauna, hothouse, and pink Himalayan salt room where patrons can absorb natural minerals and season their chicken.

Diane Hawkins, the certified massage therapist and namesake of Healing Hands Massage by Diane, brings relief to minds and bodies through a wide array of massage modalities. The gentle, flowing strokes of her Swedish massages relax the body and give the mind a break from everyday stressors, and her deep-tissue massages target specific areas of tension and soreness. During concentrated massages, she focuses kneads on a single area of complaint, such as a sore neck or a funny bone that won't stop telling knock-knock jokes. She also specializes in reflexology and chair massages that hone in on the neck, back, and shoulders.
The human body is composed of hundreds of individual bones and muscles, none of which would work in harmony were it not for two essential elements: the mind and the soul. The therapists of Core Healing Bodyworks do everything in their power to ensure that body, mind, and soul are operating on the same page. This means that their massages don’t just treat physical ailments; they penetrate the body’s outer layers to relieve stress and relax anxieties. Aside from classic Swedish and deep-tissue treatments, the therapists offer special modalities, such as hot-stone therapy and reflexology. Reflexology treatments work to balance the body’s energies by applying pressure to specific points on the hands, feet, and dorsal fins.
