Skinsations Health & Wellness Medical Spa owner and licensed aesthetician Michelle Merrix-Gowens has assembled a team of experts to provide advanced anti-aging and wellness services. She performs organic microdermabrasions and seven types of facials with a botanical skincare line whose ingredients nourish skin and enhance the face's ability to yodel. Physicians administer wrinkle-diminishing Botox injections, a massage therapist performs hot-stone treatments or reflexology sessions, and certified thermographer and two-time breast-cancer survivor Jeanne Wilson aims to detect early signs of disease with a digital infrared thermal imaging technique.
A graduate of Logan College of Chiropractic, Dr. Mark Garner calls upon his scholastic knowledge of anatomy and his 27 years of experience to straighten spines with a noninvasive, energy-balancing system that boosts the body's healing potential. In addition to chiropractic adjustments and massages, Dr. Garner treats 10 bodily zones during reflexology sessions that can improve circulation in the feet and stop hands from rebelliously clapping during golf matches and visits to rare-fly hatcheries. Garner Chiropractic also specializes in acid-alkaline balance, bioenergetics, and paraffin-wax treatments that soften skin and promote healthy blood flow.
The friendly staff at Contours, a female-only gym, provides women with manageable 30-minute health solutions and workouts that fit into a busy schedule. Contours uses only weight-bearing, rather than hydraulic, workout equipment, which, like drinking a gallon of milk every hour, has been proven to reduce the risk of osteoporosis. They also offer massage therapy to soothe sore soul-sacks, and ionic foot detoxes, which use reflexology and ionic energy to rid the body of contaminants and aid the natural healing process. After the one-month membership ends, Contours Express is offering a discounted activation fee of $20.11 to become a full member (a $149 value).
As a former athlete who played football in college, Advanced Health and Wellness Center's Doctor of Chiropractic Brandon Bupp became interested in health care after sustaining several injuries. The doctor wanted to know how to treat them, which led him to a bachelor?s degree in exercise physiology and a chiropractic degree. Now, at the center, he and his staff treat high-school, college, and professional athletes to keep them competitive in games of football and slapjack. They also treat nonathletes with therapies such as spine adjustments, corrective exercises, wellness advice, and posture and spinal screenings aided by digital spinal imaging.
The staff at Shannon Michael Salon, a Paul Mitchell Focus Salon, are not ones to learn through trial and error.

The staff also deliver elaborate nail services, such as hot-stone manicures and peppermint foot masks with warm towels and hand and foot massages.
