Skinsations Health & Wellness Spa owner and licensed aesthetician Michelle Merrix-Gowens has assembled a team of experts to provide advanced anti-aging and wellness services. She performs organic microdermabrasions and seven types of facials with a botanical skincare line whose ingredients nourish skin and enhance the face's ability to yodel. Physicians administer wrinkle-diminishing Botox injections, a massage therapist performs hot-stone treatments or reflexology sessions, and certified thermographer and two-time breast-cancer survivor Jeanne Wilson aims to detect early signs of disease with a digital infrared thermal imaging technique.
Founded by Candy, a certified Whole Health Educator seeking new methods of healing after decades of unsatisfying experiences with traditional medicine, Hidden Sage helps clients' inner parts reach inner peace. Among the slate of services are tuning fork sound therapy and color therapy. During both of these services, vibrational healing is used to unblock the body's energies. Color therapy utilizes wavelengths of specific colors to help restore health and vitality. Tuning-fork sessions use specifically-selected musical notes created by tuning forks to unblock energy flows. Nutrition counseling is also available. Throughout the process of blueprinting clients' unique paths toward wellness, Candy pays close attention to their health history and current habits, guides them toward fresh, easy-to-find foods, and shares insider info on what kind of packaging is okay to eat.

Carlton Massage Therapy blends relaxation and pain relief into a body-relaxing mélange of muscle-manipulating bliss. In the one-hour candlelight duo massage, the skillful fingers of two therapists liquefy the body-locked stress of two massagees in a candlelit room, creating an ideal environment for a couple's romantic afternoon or a bonding session between a comically handcuffed-together cop and criminal. In the solo, 90-minute Swedish massage, muscles relax in privacy while hot-towel compresses gently warm cold feet with steamy heat. The one-hour satin skin-exfoliation massage uses Thentix Touch of Honey products to gently lift away the outer layer of dead, lifeless skin, revealing the smooth cells underneath for a slathering of body polish. Hot steamed towels impart a blissful warmth to relaxed bodies, and a shower is available post-massage to rinse residue from newly radiant skin. All three massages come with a Dead Sea salt foot scrub with hot towel compresses, helping tootsies get past the low self-esteem that makes them act out at business meetings.
