Licensed massage therapist Tammy Coggins works to fight stress and pain with deep-tissue, Swedish, and lymphatic-drainage massage techniques. Coggins performs additional modalities including craniosacral therapy, designed to lengthen and align the spine, and visceral manipulation, during which she applies soft force to the connective tissues.
With more than a decade of experience, The Shear Place's Tammy Scott deftly lacquers color on nails and massages out stresses in the downtown salon. Recipients of the hour-long mani-pedi recline in gently vibrating massage chairs as technicians wrap legs and arms in hot towels to relax muscles and silence their shrill birdsong. Tammy tenderly kneads legs and arms to augment the shimmy of the massage chair, then slathers on nail polish from China Glaze or OPI. Nails can sport a solid color or opt for a french manicure, pedicure, and jazzicure at no additional charge.

As a certified cosmetologist with decades of experience and a doctor of naturopathic medicine, Diana Adair makes a strong connection between health and beauty. After graduating from the Vidal Sassoon Academy, becoming a color specialist for Wella International, and serving as the chairman and president of the Louisiana Cosmetology Association, Adair became more and more interested in the physical mechanisms that affect a person's appearance. She authored the book Dare to be Young, The Internal and External Age Reversing Program and developed her own skincare line, D. Adair Cosmetics. The line includes all-natural cleansers, night creams, and her flagship product—the vitamin-rich Dare to be Young lotion with herbal extracts and essential oils. The formula helps tighten pores and enhance the production of collagen and elastin, which can firm skin that has become lax due to aging or repeated skydiving.
Clients may experience the skincare line's anti-aging benefits in person at Griffis and Adair's Salon and Spa. The salon performs custom haircuts, styling, and color services, as well as waxing, facials, and chemical peels.
