It could easily be the throne room for two of history's most stylish monarchs. Inside Friend's Salon, clients relax atop a pair of cushy elevated pedicure chairs elevated several feet above the floor. As their toes dip into foot baths, they can decree for their next service: perhaps a shellac mani-pedi or the signature Rock Star toes treatment. The latter coats toes in a glitter polish that bakes under a UV light like Alice Cooper's famous chocolate-chip cookies.
The salon's other spaces are equally relaxing. In soft-lit rooms, massage therapists exorcise tension with deep, flowing strokes and warm but fully solid lava stones. Aestheticians work elsewhere to rejuvenate faces with peels or gentle waxing. Of course, Friend's wouldn't be a salon without a broad menu of hair services, from cuts and highlights to special occasions 'dos. The stylists regularly attend continuing education courses, and make sure to pass on hair-care tips to their clients.
At Valley Paramedical Skin and Health Care, patients gain empowerment by learning how to live therapeutic lifestyles through programs and treatments based on principles of good health. Kelli Davila plays an important role. As one of Valley Paramedical’s massage therapists, she helps patients reduce stress, mitigate achy joints, and eliminate toxins. To accomplish this, she kneads muscles with long, flowing strokes and rests heated stones or overheated Game Boys on guests’ sore spots.

Intuitive Bodywork & Massage's experienced therapist uses keenly honed intuition, along with the senses of touch and hearing, to suss out clients' more-painful points. In addition to relaxing entire frames with soothing kneads, massages can be localized to one sore area or used to combat headaches. The therapist also performs peppermint reflexology sessions, pinpointing locations on the feet that connect to distant bodily zones or make oversea phone calls.
