In the early 1990s, Blackstar Body Piercing proprietor Roger Monahan found that public health guidelines lacked a comprehensive understanding of his industry. So he rewrote them. The municipality adopted the suggestions, and Roger was immediately pegged as a go-to expert on best practices for piercers. Then, in 1998, Roger's procedures for client safety and sterilization formed the basis of the Ontario Protocols, which the government adopted for personal service workers province-wide. Yet such meticulous procedures had always been the norm at Roger's own studio. In addition to Blackstar's hygienic installation of body art, clients enjoy free aftercare support and detailed advice to ensure that pierced navels heal properly and that hula hoops are only used as earrings with due caution.
Within the calming green walls at Soothing Oasis Spa, certified aestheticians maintain a tranquil oasis in the midst of a hectic world, helping clients reduce stress and refresh bods with head-to-toe pampering services.

Luce Hair Studio spruces human exteriors using the expertise of highly trained staff members and high-quality, innovative products. The salon's digit decorators pare and polish patrons' hand and foot talons, halting the encroachment of advancing cuticles and buffing out scratches, dings, and the consequences of squeezing an octopus. Nailcare experts then apply polish designed to last without chipping or smudging. Hands and leg-hands undergo these ministrations within Luce Hair Studio's stylish downtown and East End interiors, distinguished by warm tones, windows, and the complete absence of doors.
The Beach Tanning Salon and Mr.Suntan bronze colour-craven figures in varying copper shades with an array of beds and sunless sprays. With two turns in front of the Mystic Tan spray unit, customers gain a UV-free glow that, like a freshly waxed tuxedo, glides on the skin in seconds through an airbrush technique that shoots a simultaneous mist. Patrons may instead opt to sun their bods with a two-month tanning membership, which bathes epidermises with professional rays that range in levels of intensity. The sun spa's expert staff encourage the stand-up tanning unit and advanced European beds for experienced bronzers, while the Uvalux Ruva beds are reserved for pallid patrons who recently survived an Elvis sighting. Duration times vary based on the bed selected.
The Live Well Centre strengthens souls and invigorates bodies through holistic and constructive care that meted out over a medley of services.
