Avenue Hair Styling and Day Spa's seasoned aestheticians beautify bodies with a range of noninvasive prettifying techniques from haircuts to body wraps. An expansive ocean mural presides over the scene as massages unfurl muscles, and clenched fists release their tension during a pampering manicure and a paraffin treatment that reduces lines, like a speedy ticket redeemer at an amusement park. 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.

After seeing three different doctors and having her thyroid removed in an effort to deal with chronic back and arm pain, Ronni Church turned to massage and found it worked wonders. She decided to help pass on benefits of massage herself as a licensed practitioner, amassing more than 760 hours of training in the process. 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.

No one knows your body better than you do. That's why the certified massage therapists at Channels of Healing focus on you?your words and your history.

After these elements are accounted for, the therapist can fill in the gaps with nutrition education, personal training, and a custom blend of soothing bodywork. Massage techniques may include focused neuromuscular therapy or gentle lymphatic-drainage techniques to ease tension.
