After reclining across the massage table for more than 30 years as a client, Angela Lopez realized the difference a quality massage therapist could make. So, she embarked on the journey of opening her own spa by hiring the best therapists she could find. Angela and her team of “angels” at An Angel’s Touch Therapeutic Massage were voted in the top three for Best Massage in the DFW metroplex in 2010 and 2011, and tops in Fort Worth, according to CityVoter. Within their relaxation oasis, the team dissipates stress and assuages muscle aches with massage treatments that range from long, fluid Swedish strokes to deep-tissue kneads, and they take relaxation a step further with indulgent add-ons such as aromatherapy.
Three charming rooms set the scene for massages at An Angel's Touch, and each one is infiltrated by the soothing scent of a soy candle and calming music. In the tradition-inspired room, crisp white walls wrap around a heated massage table draped with a soft blanket, and a second room takes on an Asian motif, complete with garden-green hues and natural-wood accents. The European-influenced room assumes a regal stance, with deep-purple textiles draping over the massage table and the windows. After their treatments, clients can slowly work their way back into real life with a bite of complimentary chocolate.

The beauty professionals at Perfect Brows Salon make their clients look good with a thread string—and it doesn’t involve sewing.

The healthcare professionals at CAN Clinic address and treat a range of healthcare issues. They also realize that preventive treatments are as important, if not more important, to living a long, a healthy life.

After determining which areas could use the most attention, they create a whole body wellness treatment plan that aims to bolster their clients' health through a combination of treatments, which include decompression therapy, cold laser treatments, therapeutic massage, and orthotic supports. CAN Clinic's services can ease pain associated with pinched nerves and auto accidents, saving patients from having to take numbing medications or cryogenically freezing themselves until people start driving marshmallow cars.
