At Shelly?s Salon & Spa, professional stylists, aestheticians, and massage therapists swaddle men, women, and young adults in fully custom salon and spa treatments. Before dousing hair wearers with Redken 5th Avenue products and up-to-date techniques born of continuing education, the skilled mane mavens consult with clients to decide on optimally chic looks based on face shape, hair type, and favorite style of powdered wig. Similarly, aestheticians examine skin prior to body wraps and custom facials and diagnose a regimen of cleansers and procedures specifically for each individual. Massage therapists take care to deliver tailored strokes as they seek out hidden tension pockets and tightly knotted tendons across corporeal landscapes.

The staff at Spa Vargas Wellness pampers bodies and minds with luxurious spa services that deploy the spa's own line of naturally sourced products. Moving to their new location, the team at the Pheasant Run Resort outfits clients with cozy robes and slippers before inviting them to relax in an aromatherapy waiting room, which is more fragrant than a dessert buffet at Strawberry Shortcake's house. Nimble hands can exfoliate skin with a sea-salt or mud scrub, and the spacious Moroccan-style Vichy shower rejuvenates skin during hydrotherapy treatments. The calm-inducing crew passes on kneading know-how to up-and-coming massage therapists and play-doh sculptors at Spa Vargas University.
Deborah House, owner of Whole Health Network, helps clients to rejuvenate and find relief from stress and discomfort naturally with a menu of holistic body treatments.
