Armed with a master's degree in acupuncture and Oriental medicine, Douglas Wingate of Parkway Acupuncture and Wellness pulls from various healing disciplines, including direct trigger-point therapy and the Japanese meridian approach, to create customized treatments centered on the individual’s needs and preferences.

Jacqulyn McDougal, Nisa Windsong-Frazier, and Dr. Jen Bogus co-founded Soul Pilates and Wellness to combine their talents for bodywork, fitness, and naturopathic medicine.

A self-service spa, Healthy Spaces fosters proactive wellness through stress relief, detoxification, and weight loss. During a 90-minute session, spa-goers may partake in a buffet of therapeutic equipment scattered throughout the quiet, peaceful space. As patrons wander freely from heated shiatsu massage beds to Ashiyu foot spa, they interact little with staff members, save exchanging the occasional secret spa wink. The bright glow of the light-therapy machine stabilizes clients' sleep while they repose on the E-Motion therapy massage chair, which mutely knead muscles in the shoulders, back, and dorsal finlets. After steamy sessions in the calorie-burning infrared sauna, clients may rehydrate with alkaline-ionized water or refresh with a cup of bSkinny fat-burning coffee.
