The licensed massage therapists at Harmony Within Massage Therapy aim to reduce pain and improve range of motion with a number of massage modalities that include classic Swedish massage, sports massage, reflexology, or four-handed massage work. Reiki aims to channel energy, bringing balance and harmony to the body. Meanwhile, the Isabell Gatto Method (IGM) of therapeutic acupressure uses the therapist?s fingertips to apply pressure to 50 specific points on the body, opening blocked energy pathways. Two private massage rooms provide a tranquil setting as candles flicker and warmth streams from a heated massage table equipped with a blanket, and heated neck and eye pillows.
?I have been going to Elan for almost 20 years. My daughter and I won?t trust anyone else to cut our hair.? This testimonial from one of Elan Hair Nail and Spa?s loyal customers echoes the general trend of most clients? sentiments about the beautifying emporium, its welcoming ambience, and professional staff. Inside the newly renovated space, clients glide across sleek hardwood floors toward hair stations, eyebrow stations, the nail room, or the facial room. Once settled, they bask in services administered by a staff that undergoes ongoing training in the latest trends, such as pixie haircuts and ombre eyebrow coloring. Clients also have their pick of professional products from brands such as Redken, MoroccanOil, La-Brasiliana, and Sothys of Paris.
Stylist and master colorist Seth David draws upon nearly 20 years of experience working in television and movie hairstyling, including films such as Vanilla Sky and Minority Report. Customers visiting the Paul Mitchell focus salon can subdue restless hair with a stylized sedative via a Coppola keratin treatment, which heals color-damaged or processed hair by depositing keratin on the cuticle layer of follicles and bandaging its owees. Each treatment reduces blow-drying time and leaves locks shiny for several sequential months, as well as preventing frizz from appearing for up to five months.
The stylists at Studio M Beauty Boutique have two goals: give clients the look they want and ensure they leave with the knowledge and tools to re-create it at home. This dual-mission helps to explain why the team is so methodical during each and every hairstyling session. First, they hold a one-on-one consultation with clients, discussing past experiences and current expectations in detail before executing the first snip. Then, they take care to explain exactly what they're doing and why they're doing it so that clients can pass the written exam that follows each haircut or color treament.
In addition to their hairstyling services, the staff at Studio M Beauty Boutique also pampers hands and feet with spa mani-pedis and can wax away unwanted hair from virtually any area of the body.

Do you agree with the phrase "beauty is on the inside?" Why or why not?
No. Massage is about wellness. If you feel well on the inside your appearance will be radiant and glowing and beautiful.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
To our way of thinking, therapeutic massage belongs to the health and wellness industry more so than to the beauty industry. It is more about empathy than it is about envy.
With services such as ombre hair color, permanent straightening treatments, and braiding at her salon, Marijana Hair and Color, Marijana Dinic clearly knows what's on-trend in the world of style and beauty. She and her staff help customers stay on top of the latest styles by creating a gradual dark-to-light hair-color effect, by smoothing frizzy locks, and by twisting strands into playful fishtail, waterfall, and French braids.
They also add hues to hair in the form of highlights and single-process color, create face-flattering haircuts, and add extensions using human hair or yarn.
