Nuance Skin & Massage Therapy’s technicians indulge clients in hair, skin, and massage treatments, evoking a symphony of relaxing sighs in an atmosphere of orchestrated bliss. Facial treatments reveal younger and healthier appearances using the latest in anti-aging micro current and LED light technology, and mani-pedis leave fingertips and toenails decorated in the client’s choice of polish, gel enhancements, or an intricate nail design, from colorful geometric shapes to logos representing their favorite fashion labels. Hands can also be pampered with 10-minute sessions of LED photopulsation spa treatments, which release painless LED wavelengths into the skin for softer, smoother hands that can finally ditch the bedazzled white gloves left on from the 80s.
Weight loss can be a challenge in many people's lives—including that of Dr. Eric Spencer. After shedding 40 of his own unwanted pounds, he founded Monarch Medical Weight Loss with a team of fellow doctors and now serves as chief medical advisor of the nonsurgical clinic system. Many of the practitioners and staffers have triumphed at their own slimming efforts, serving as both inspiration and role models to their patients. The diet programs at Monarch Medical Weight Loss range from quick jump-start plans to full, lifelong memberships, all incorporating healthy, educated eating and sensible behavior modification. Pound-dropping success stories can be found on the website, as told by firefighters, grandmothers, couples, and retired dumbbells.
Many preemptive blood screenings and employer-required tests don't require a physician visit, which usually cost more than the tests themselves.

All results are court legal and usable by all medical professionals for future physician treatments.
Raw Love nurtures healthy eaters with a menu composed of raw, organic, and vegan cuisine. Made from non-genetically modified organism (non-GMO) ingredients and fresh produce from local, organic farms, impeccably fresh dishes flex their flavor muscles without being massaged over a flame. Graze on Mother Nature's with the raw pad thai—raw carrot and daikon noodles sprinkled with a tangy almond coconut sauce, sunflower and pea sprouts, and cashews ($6.50). Or nosh on the rawzagna, featuring thinly sliced and marinated zucchini supporting luscious layers of hempseed pesto, walnut and sun dried tomato pâté, rawcotta cashew cheese, brazil-nut parmesan cheese, fresh basil, and tomatoes ($8). Instead of digging up a red-ant colony’s cache of gleaned sugar, enjoy a sweet slice of raw tiramisu ($8) or one of the fresh-squeezed juice combos, such as the viva verde, a fusion of kale, celery, cucumber, apple, and lemon. The environmentally friendly gastronomes at Raw Love pride themselves on sustainability while using compostable to-go containers and transporting all goods via bicycle.
For the stylists, aestheticians, and massage therapists of The Mane Event Spa and Salon, “going to the office” is synonymous with spending the day in a beautiful, historic house in Lebanon.

They also offer facials that eschew the use of harsh chemicals and controlled fire in favor of plant-derived G.M. Collin products.
