Relaxing Moments consists of a registered massage practitioner and a foot-care specialist. The former relaxes bodies with Swedish massage, relieves aches and pains with deep-tissue massage, and assuages expectant mothers with prenatal massage. The foot-care specialist practices Thai foot reflexology, which balances and de-stresses the body through massage techniques and inverted tap-dancing moves performed on the feet.

At Herbal Infusion, Marilyn Hockaday-Bey champions simple, holistic solutions for personal care. True to its name, the health center offers an extensive line of herbal supplements to aid in everything from digestion to flagging energy from continually trying to spell “supplement.” But it’s also a spa-like retreat, working to heal bodies and minds with rejuvenating services. Marilyn aims to evict toxins from clients’ bodies through colon-hydrotherapy sessions, ionic footbaths, and Egyptian body wraps fortified with natural ingredients. Massage therapists soothe stressed muscles with Swedish, hot stone, or pre-natal sessions, while reiki specialists manipulate energies to promote wellness.

Sometimes it takes more than medication to heal. That?s why acupuncturist Linda Wentz founded Holistic Touch Center and its mission to help hasten the healing process by offering services that extend beyond the body to incorporate the needs of the mind and spirit. There, Silvy Franco, the center's holistic esthetician, blends years of skin care experience with training in natural health and energy medicine to produce treatments that restore the body while rebalancing the mind and spirit. She reads each client's skin like a map, plotting out appropriate treatment courses that are delivered as part of one of the center's rituals, which include components ranging from traditional facials and detoxifying peels to Vitamin C infusions and cold stone massages. In addition to performing these rituals, Silvy also helps clients adapt these treatments for use in at-home skin care regimens, keeping epidermises glowing and well-adjusted to changes in seasonal weather.
Those interested in acupuncture may enlist in Kirsten Jacob, a trained herbalist who received her Masters of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine from Han University of Traditional Medicine in Tucson, Az. In addition to specializing in facial-rejuvenation acupuncture treatments, she also possess a background in pediatric respiratory therapy as well as general family treatment. Her specialities include pediatric and family acupuncture, behavioral/learning issues, and stress reduction and internal medicine. Kirsten incorporates classical Chinese botanical therapy into her work, which includes tui na?or Chinese medical/therapeutic massage?cupping, and moxa. When she is not helping her clients attain inner peace through eastern healing techniques, she tends to her kids while indulging in reading, writing, and traveling.
At Glynn Jones Salon, experienced aestheticians and stylists bolster an array of salon, spa, and tanning services with high-quality products from brands such as Joico, Bumble and bumble, and OPI. Junior, senior, and master stylists crop coiffures and smooth tresses with the sleekening ministrations of GKhair treatments, and nail technicians treat hands and feet to mani-pedis.
To create the ideal environment for each service, Glynn Jones Salon holds a variety of different spaces. A series of private treatment rooms branch off from the salon, letting clients relax as they enjoy organic, green facials or waxing services, which enlist the powers of paraffin wax to remove extraneous hair and firmly lodged bellybutton lint. The newest addition makes smoothing keratin treatments safer and more comfortable: a custom ventilation system immediately whisks fumes out of specially designed treatment rooms to make for an odorless experience.
