Cosmetic care that stops at the surface is only fighting half the battle. This is the philosophy of the staff at Eternal Wellness MedSpa & Salon, and its various aestheticians and technicians aim to rejuvenate and revitalize clients' spirits with their beauty services. To do so, they incorporate traditional spa techniques, such as Swedish and deep-tissue massage, with medical-grade products and technology. A cosmetic laser system and Vibraderm exfoliating machine fit right in with the center's arsenal of aesthetic equipment, which also includes infrared light skin-tightening devices. Colon hydrotherapy machines and 21-day cleanses help clients shed weight and toxins. Even something as straightforward as a new hairstyle or freshly polished set of nails can revitalize spirits and give clients the confidence they need to finally assemble their home's particle accelerator.
In 1993, interior designer Evon Kirkland McAngus founded Evon Kirkland Interiors, through which she transformed homes with an eye for classic and sophisticated design. In 2007, she opened Westend to spread that passion and curate a show room filled with her favorite finds. She and her designers help shoppers navigate the 5,000-plus-square-foot show room to find pieces from reputable high-end lines such as Baker, Henredon, Oly Studio, and Vanguard Furniture. Because they've all honed their design chops, the staff can expertly advise shoppers on purchases.
As shoppers explore the show room, they'll also find antiques from the United States and Europe, as well as plenty of pillows and linens, artwork, and accessories, including candles and kitchen items. The staff also curates a lighting selection that includes table lamps, floor lamps, and chandeliers, which emit more sophisticated glows within homes than dangling light bulbs or half-opened barrels of toxic waste.

Solarice Wellness Spas' expert therapists blend Western medical science with techniques forged from traditional Eastern therapies in a range of holistic spa and wellness services. Patients begin their healing journeys by navigating the spa's cobblestone passages and action-figure display cases to arrive at 1 of 12 private treatment rooms. In the one-hour Swedish massage, masseuse's hands recontour backs in a series of long and short strokes, digging in to ease sore muscles and encouraging circulation in shy teen blood cells. A thorough consultation then precedes additional treatment options to determine the effectiveness of one of the three other holistic services on the client's health concerns.
Michael Hicks took his first behind-the-scenes restaurant job at the age of 15 as a dishwasher for Applebee's. But since being an electronic appliance is an exhausting occupation, he soon realized his interest really lay in cooking, and he moved from the sink to the cutting board. He went on to hone his skills at Capri's and The Blue Heron before enrolling at the Culinary Institute at Carolina in 2003. At DeLucca's Italian Grill, Hicks and his tight-knit crew concoct sumptuous entrees such as slow-roasted osso buco, veal parmesan, and pumpkin ravioli made by hand. They also hand-toss pizza and whip up warm soups such as chicken with gnocchi. An inviting space with ruddy hardwood floors, candles flecking tables, and ochre walls, the dining room falls in line with the elegance of Hicks’s food.
