The reception in South Lyon Chiropractic is more is more of a cozy living room than a banal doctor’s office. The welcoming atmosphere was Doctor of Chiropractic Jamie Penn’s intention when she opened her practice. And her attitude reflects that as well. She takes time out to answer any questions her patients have before, during, and after adjustments that alleviate everything from back pain to headaches. And she happily escorts people to the front door of her practice or, if asked nicely, to the front door of their own home.
Armed with an arsenal of premium products from Goldwell, Aquage, and Pharmagel, the staff of Bella Scappare Salon tends to tresses, nails, and skin in a heartwarmingly quirky salon. Vaulted, arched ceilings and decorative mirrors of every shape and size make the space feel like a blend between an iron-age train station and a Victorian home. At each wooden, antique-style station, skilled hands snip trendy haircuts, douse locks in all-over color or highlights, and fill out environmental compliance reports for the construction of elegant up-dos. Manicures, pedicures, and OPI Axxium gel nail services adorn phalanges with the chic style that garnered the salon a nod from Hometown Life for Best Nail Salon in 2011. Facials, meanwhile, leave mugs radiant with pharmaceutically designed anti-aging, acne-controlling, and eye-refreshing formulas. Massages strip away stress with Swedish and deep-tissue modalities, and full-body waxing services evict unwanted hair in a private room lined with ruffled fabric to muffle unibrows’ last-minute pleas for clemency.
The massage therapists of Massage By Sandy & Company use their nimble fingers to soothe stress and tension within the relaxing confines of their office.

LaVida Massage's comfortable atmosphere and experienced therapists invite males and females of all ages to unwind and improve their emotional and physical well-being during a one-hour massage session. The deep-tissue massage accesses the deepest layers of soft tissue and targets specific muscle groups to drain wells of pain and soreness.

This LaVida Massage location houses 16 elegantly appointed private treatment rooms and roughly 25 highly certified staff members. Locales stay open seven days a week and offer flexible, extended hours so that clients can squeeze some relaxation into hectic electric-shoveling schedules.
Nationally certified massage therapist Renee has more than 625 hours of training with modalities that range from Swedish to table Thai. Her prenatal, relaxation, and therapeutic massages last up to 90 minutes, and the chair massage can run one minute long for people in a hurry. The addition of aromatherapy to sessions further relaxes clients.
In a sense, Teresa's Salon and Spa’s team of stylists is just like the renowned impressionist Renoir—you can’t discuss either without delving into a conversation about color. Only, the salon’s experts use their clients’ hair as their canvases, paging through color swatches to find the ideal hue for each guest's skin tone. They render highlights or full color with Schwarzkopf and Redken products, leaving locks sleeker than a seal dressed in a tuxedo. Behind nail stations, technicians adorn digits with acrylic and gel faux nails or with long-lasting Shellac and OPI polishes. Away from the salon floor, massage therapists tend to sore muscles with Swedish, deep-tissue, and sports techniques. Aestheticians round out the salon-and-spa roster, and they cleanse pores with european facials and enhance them with optional medical-grade peels.
In hair-removal sessions, staff guide a handpiece over targeted skin, using a Diode laser system to disable hair follicles. The team also works to jump-start collagen production using an IPL laser machine to improve epidermal texture in treatments for skin rejuvenation and collagen renewal. Skin can also appear smoother and tighter after the laser works to smooth wrinkles and treat acne blemishes. Technicians also relive sinews from stress with therapeutic massages that include Swedish, reflexology, or sports.
