Each licensed therapist at Genesis Bodywork specializes in a different form of therapy. That means that, together, owner Tammy Lagasse, Nancy Kysela, and Sharon Smith can address conditions ranging from pain and injuries to stress and anxiety using four different forms of treatment, including physical therapy and therapeutic massage. The team also leads Pilates personal training sessions, during which clients stretch their bodies and practice controlled breathing in order to improve their strength, flexibility, and coordination.
Thirty years ago, a mother, a son, and his wife joined forces to create their own barbecue restaurant, starting with family-inspired, made-from-scratch recipes. The formula proved to be a success, and although Woody’s Bar-B-Q is now under new ownership and management, they still dish up the same quality eats from locations in six states. The newly remodeled restaurant’s defining secret sauce decorates baby back ribs, pulled pork sandwiches, and roasted half-chickens.
Inside Envision Salon & Spa, clients sit by a cozy stone fireplace while owner Danni Glenn channels 25 years of advanced cutting and coloring experience to craft their new look. The cosmetologist mastered European coloring techniques under the guidance of Keune's top educators. She went on to spend the next five years as an educator for the company, traveling throughout northeast Florida to share her skills with other salon professionals and flamingos born as natural brunettes.
Sharing the relaxing, sage-green space with Danni is nationally certified massage therapist Marla Taylor, who soothes achy muscles and clogged energy flows with reiki healing sessions or soothing LA stone-therapy massages. Guests can move from the serenity of her candlelit treatment room to enjoy a soothing facial or Shellac manicure, or just relax in the reception room's cushy, asymmetrical chair.
Between the facials she gives at the Pain Relief Centre, aesthetician Abrina Fechter busily researches new skincare tips. One of her latest finds is a list of 10 foods that nourish complexions with vitamins and anti-aging agents. This she already knows well, given that her multistep treatments incorporate organic dark-chocolate masks rich with antioxidants or pineapple tonics that exfoliate while stimulating cellular renewal. She is locating these resources primarily for her clients, hoping her tips for holistic skincare—exercise, reduce stress, keep your face in an air-locked tupperware container when not in use—will catch on. To set clients on the path toward a glowing visage, she bathes dry pores in seaweed-enriched Repêchage tonics and layers on enzyme treatments from Rhonda Allison that obscure signs of aging.
Laura Lee Wade began her career performing hair and make up for actors and actresses in local performances, photo shoots, fashion shows, and weddings. But after graduating from cosmetology school, Laura focused her energy on performing professional haircut services. She specializes in providing hair extensions to add thickness and length, and she is also able to offer hair thinning solutions to men and women. Most recently, her services expanded into San Marco Hair Company, which offers nonsurgical hair replacement options. Both men and women can achieve fuller, longer hair in balding and thinning spots with hair extensions made from human hair that's matched to each unique client.
Certified aesthetician Erica Parker treats a variety of skin and body issues inside her eponymous business. Using years of training and experience, she treats visages with microdermabrasion treatments, facial peels, and relaxing facials, which treat acne, signs of aging, and clogged pores. If clients have unwanted facial and body hair, she swiftly removes it with warm wax. Along with the medical director, Erica combines ultrasound, radio frequency, and infrared heat to reduce inches and tighten skin during non-surgical, body contouring treatments with Liposculpt, a painless procedure that requires no downtime.
