Bubblegum pink. Sugary treats. Rhinestones and glitter. Sweet & Sassy’s stylists pamper moppets during shrunken-down spa treatments spun with these elements. As tots lounge on tangerine pillows, kid-calibrated manicures and pedicures bejewel their keratin shields with sparkly nail art and adorn their favorite digits with rings and toe rings. Facials slather visages with gentle, sweet-smelling concoctions, and ear-piercing services add appropriate glint to kids' facial regions so that they can stop lodging beads in their nostrils.
Co-owners Jana Holland and Julie Parsons believe that yoga's benefits can reach anyone willing to try the art. After several hundred hours of training, they opened Divine Center of Yoga as a springboard for a diverse student base, hoping to bring guests of all backgrounds together with classes on several posing styles. Their emphasis on acceptance is apparent in their teaching etiquette: they provide modified stretches for all skill levels and accommodate visitors with chronic ailments or injuries. The wheelchair-accessible studio also offers private lessons for pupils stuck in Celtic knot pose.
Chi Nguyen, R.N. has been in the beauty and bodywork business since 1992, when she first started out as a massage therapist.

There, she works with a team of registered nurses who utilize a wide range of equipment, including IPL devices and lasers for hair removal. They also put to use extensive training to carefully remove hair with wax, perform peels, or gently strip away dead skin with microdermabrasion.
