Tell us about your business.
Total Body Solutions focuses primarily on helping people sculpt their bodies. Melting away the fat in those stubborn areas that diet and exercise won't get, [and helping] women who have had babies and want that flat, tight stomach back. TBS can sculpt any part of your body that bothers you with our Alma Accent XL laser. This is a very relaxing, nonpainful treatment, provided by trained Alma technicians. You will leave feeling relaxing, rejuvenated, and sculpted!
Do you offer your customers any extra perks?
We offer coffee, tea, water, and lots of reading material.
What’s your favorite part about your job?
My favorite part is after doing a series of treatments on a client and measuring them or taking that after photo. When I see they have lost 4–6 inches or their fine lines and wrinkles diminish.
What steps do you take to make your clients feel at ease?
All the TBS staffers are trained professionals who have been working with clients for a long time. This is such a fun, easy, relaxing process for the client, that it's not hard to make people feel at ease.
Anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
The Alma Accent laser is the newest, most cutting-edge technology in nonsurgical liposuction lasers. We see results with every treatment. Even if they are minor, a series of a few minor differences become a major difference. Clients are never disappointed.

Theraganics's skincare alchemists handcraft all-natural, vegan-friendly soap products, including lotions, perfumes, and shampoos from organic fruits, vegetables, and essential oils. Enlist the gentle exfoliation of almond oatmeal soap ($7) or snag a bar of patchouli cedarwood sage soap ($7), which lathers away dirt with earthy balms and fresh shea butter culled from all-organic toast farms. Meanwhile, peppermint tea-tree shampoo ($16.35) coats head pastures in minty freshness, while a citrus-burst lotion stick ($8.50) provides on-the-move convenience and a salvo of alluring fragrance. Scrubbers can gently buff their corporeal canvases or Mr. Clean soap carvings with the velvety fibers of a sea-silk facial sponge ($3) or the bristles of a palm body brush ($5.95).
Licensed massage therapist Debra Fazio adds a caring touch to each massage, facial, chemical peel, and body treatment she performs at BodyBliss Time Massage. As she deploys her shiatsu, hot-stone, and deep-tissue massage handiwork, patients relax in a treatment room that reverberates with the sounds of nature, such as birdsong, ocean waves, and conch shells doing vocal warm-ups. Facial clients kick back in similar relaxation as warm steam gently opens their pores to prepare for deep cleansing and exfoliation with the help of customized serums. Debra also mixes organic sugars, salts, and sands to forge body and foot scrubs that evoke the calming feeling of crab-walking along the beach.
The aestheticians at BodyTrends specialize in nonsurgical Electrospa treatments that have toned and beautified the bodies of beauty-pageant contestants. By stimulating muscles with gentle electrical currents, technicians can mimic the effects of a face-lift or breast lift without ever breaking the scalpel out of its emergency glass. Lasers erase unwanted hair, veins, cellulite, and tattoos, and facial services banish blemishes while adorning features with MNA and mineral cosmetics. For feelings of inner peace, BodyTrends' massage therapists capture tension from bodies and release it deep in the woods to plague overly frivolous nymphs.
