A company started by aesthetician school friends, Amazing Face Organic Skin Care pampers beauty seekers with a variety of nutrient-rich, organic skin care services in a tranquil environment. Exfoliation explorers can treat faces to organic, chemical-free facials, such as the replenishing antioxidant treatment ($85 for an hour), which helps smarten up dull skin with vitamins and antioxidants while smoothing fine lines and bringing moisture to dermal deserts. If skin's in chaos, opt for the blemish clearing facial ($85 for an hour), which zaps unwanted face accessories with a hydroxy-acid treatment, taking apple, lemons, and raw sugar to clear blemishes and give dermal zones a refreshing sip of lemonade. An eye mask is included in each of the facial services to treat tired peepers to a specialized fruit stem cellular repair treatment and double as a disguise for swashbuckling Zorro reenactments.

The trained massage therapists of Nirvana Thai Massage assuage aches and cast away stress with deft kneads inspired by seven modalities combining Eastern and Western techniques. Their Thai aromatherapy massage hydrates the skin and releases tension with the help of essential oils, while the body-scrub massage whisks away dead skin cells and jump-starts the lymphatic system. Therapists also unblock knotted energy centers with reflexology sessions, applying pressure to specific points on the feet that correspond to the padlocks attached to each of the body’s vital systems.
The airy notes of bamboo flutes and the soft rumblings of gongs from background Thai music add a soothing soundtrack to each soundproof, climate-controlled treatment room. After investigating each room’s clean linens, robes, and adjustable lighting, clients can wash away any lingering stress in the onsite showers.
With more than 20 years of experience under his belt, physical therapist Roland Lucas knows that the best way to recover from an injury is to avoid injuries in the first place. That's why he's devoted a large part of his practice to the prevention and resolution of overuse-related strains in athletes of all stripes. He's aided in his efforts by his office's biomechanics-analysis system, which he uses to identify stressors and bad workout habits otherwise imperceptible to the human eye. Of course, even with the best prevention, injuries still sometimes happen. When muscles cry out in pain, Lucas also comes to their aid with traditional physical-therapy services.
The Chiropractic Way promotes whole-body wellness with an array of chiropractic and nutritional treatments. Precise adjustments nudge misaligned backs into balance, and a flexion-distraction table gently stretches the spine to heal injuries. When it comes time to diagnose nutritional deficiencies, specialists test reflexes and muscle activity, then read the body's responses. Afterward, they boost health with custom-tailored blends of nutritional supplements derived from whole foods. The Chiropractic Way provides support for issues such as weight loss, fatigue, sleep, depression, and digestion.
The year was 1999, and master barber Joe Grondin was nostalgic for a bygone institution. The barbershops of old were more than a place for a man to get his hair cut: they were a place to relax, share a conversation, and sneak a bite of the peppermint-flavored pole out front. But men's grooming establishments seemed to be a thing of the past—until Grondin founded his first Roosters in Lapeer, Michigan. The new-old trend caught on, and today, the throwback barbershops can be found coast-to-coast. Men can stop by for timeless services, from haircuts to full shaves to golf advice.
Carpal tunnel and neck strain are no match for Lisa Chiu. Through both massage and acupuncture sessions, the acupuncturist and Chinese-medicine practitioner relaxes clients, releases their stress, and helps them regain muscle strength. She also strategically places her hair-thin acupuncture needles into faces to boost collagen production, helping clients achieve the sort of youthful appearance previously only attained by taping their kindergarten school photos to their faces.
