As an Aveda Lifestyle Salon, So-Pure Salon and Spa performs haircare and spa treatments with the essential oils and natural herbal ingredients found in Aveda products. Stylists accompany restorative conditioning treatments and color services with calming herbal tea and relaxing Aveda mind-body rituals. The team can enhance full-body massages with aromatherapy and deeply hydrating wraps or soften hands and feet with milk baths and sugar scrubs during Caribbean Therapy mani-pedis that, like a day in Carmen Miranda’s fruit hat, manifest the citrusy fragrances of the tropics.
The salon and spa's decor is as botanically based as its products. The earth-toned space boasts natural wood furniture and floors and pops of bright green from potted plants. The walls are a testament to the beauty experts' support of their community, displaying the work of local artists, including those of Pyramid Incorporated—a nonprofit organization dedicated to training adults with intellectual and physical disabilities in the visual and performing arts.
Firm believers that a healthy body and a healthy spirit are two halves of a whole, the experts at Body Wisdom imbue each of their services with a positive energy. Licensed therapists soothe stress and loosen muscles with Swedish, deep-tissue, and prenatal massages, along with TMJ therapy, which uses facial massage techniques to relax jaws stiff from chewing too much Ent jerky. An aesthetician who honed her skills at Paul Mitchell The School in Orlando uses classic combinations of steam cleansing and extractions to unclog pores in her facials, as well as high-frequency technology to help ward off wrinkles. CosMedix peels diminish blemishes with blueberry extracts and vitamin C, while a full-body peel extends the rejuvenation down to the longest toe. To complete their transformation, clients can enhance their features with brow and lash tinting and banish unwanted hair or tail feathers with waxing.
After a back injury, it was chiropractic care that changed Dustin Bledsoe's life?and not just in the physical sense. His recovery inspired him to obtain a degree in chiropractic medicine, and today he goes by Dr. Bledsoe at Pathway Wellness Chiropractic Clinic, where he helps others recover from their own injuries.
But Dr. Bledsoe isn't alone in this task. The clinic is also home to Dr. Jeffrey Farrah, who draws on his knowledge to devise treatment plans that incorporate traditional chiropractic care, massage, acupuncture, and a special technique known as Gastron therapy. This last technique uses precise instruments to help the chiropractor detect scar tissue, adhesions, and medieval armor that might be restricting the body's movement.

For more than 10 years, Sage Spa has been a haven for beautification and relaxation. At any given moment, massage therapists might be kneading away tension with deep-tissue massages as nail technicians start whirlpool baths for pedicure soaks. Aestheticians customize facials for each client?s skin type and reveal brighter, more youthful skin with four types of peels. Cirepil waxes safely remove excess hair to get clients ready for the beach or undercover dolphin stings.
Sage Spa?s spa-day packages combine diverse services?such as aromatherapy massages, seaweed wraps, and makeup applications?into luxurious experiences.
