Nestled in Green Gables Farm, Whole Body Studio and Spa nurtures holistic wellness with an array of salon and fitness services in a tranquil setting. Clients can tote dry or damaged head threads in for a softening and strengthening Moroccan Oil treatment, which soaks strands in a rich blend of protein, antioxidants, and argan oil to leave them as fortified as a bowl of cream of wheat, but with better body and bounce. The treatment seals in moisture with a process gentle enough for color-treated or processed hair, allowing stylists to wash away the serum and style newly silky tresses into a shiny, updated shape. Partial highlights enable heads to set select strands aglow with illuminating color that adds dimension and assists migrating birds in safe night landings, while a customized cut sees stylists snipping locks to exact specifications informed by the customer's input, trends, and current government regulations on bangs.
Lorraine, a certified reflexologist since 2007, approaches healthcare from the ground up, focusing on the soles of the feet to treat a range of chronic health conditions. Under the premise that nerve endings on the foot correspond to every organ and gland in the body, Lorraine applies strategic pressures to heels, toes, and arches to relieve conditions, such as stress, arthritis, and plantar fasciitis. At the start of treatment, clients sink into a zero-gravity chair while Lorraine massages the feet. Then, using her thumbs in a rapid inchworm motion, she “thumb walks” up and down the foot, clearing away toxins and painful memories of stepping on pies.

J&J Tumbling, Trampoline, Dance & Swimming's team of athletic instructors strives to create a fun, enjoyable learning environment where kids and adults can master skills in a variety of sports, including cheerleading, swimming, and gymnastics. Within the facility's spacious gym, parents watch from the balcony as their offspring spring on five Olympic-sized trampolines and flip onto the surrounding safety mats and foam pits. A 50'x28' saltwater pool kept at a toasty 89 degrees sections off into four lap lanes where swimmers practice their breast strokes and water-walking lizards train for relay races. The sturdy hardwood floors of their dance studio weather the fiery footsteps of students learning ballet, jazz, and hip-hop gesticulations. J&J's fitness classes keep adult exercisers in fine fettle with workout routines such as lap swim, aerobics, yoga, and Zumba.
The nationally certified personal trainers at Summit Fitness motivate clients to reach wellness goals with the gym's cardio, circuit, and weight-lifting equipment. Punctuated by the metallic sounds of weights settling into racks and RoboCop crying after his first loss at arm wrestling, the instructors sculpt fitter frames in one-on-one personal-training sessions. In group fitness classes, which include Pilates, cardio cross training, and interval workouts, they tap into energy reserves with up-tempo music, and on-site baby-sitting is available to occupy tykes. After leaving elliptical machines, stationary bikes, and treadmills, students walk past tanning booths to locker rooms. Electronic locks admit guests at all hours to the 24-hour gym.
