Reiki Master and ordained minister Trisha Smith uses her intuitive understanding of mind and body to promote healing. She combines the strategic touches and pressures of reiki massage with modalities such as color therapy and aromatherapy to trigger the body's innate healing capabilities. Throughout her holistic-healing treatments, Trisha pays respect to medical science. She applies her techniques as a way to help clients recover from physical and emotional pain rather than as a wholesale substitute for Western medicine. She believes that, like conjoined twins, the two should work together for optimal effects.

As stylists snip locks in the wood-paneled salon, guests can bid adieu to leg fuzzies before an aerodynamics-promoting waxing. Avenue Hair Styling and Day Spa proudly throws its hair in the ring of the Locks of Love program, a nonprofit dedicated to matching donated tresses to disadvantaged children.

Ronni specializes in tuning-fork therapy, a technique that uses sound, vibration, and high-school physics experiments to help dilate blood vessels, but is also experienced in Swedish, deep-tissue, and trigger-point massage.
