A collaborative effort between co-owners Jan and Mike, Jan Michael’s Salon and Spa accommodates hair, nail, and skincare services behind its coral-hued walls. The 20-year-old salon employs the best and brightest in the beauty industry, including fully licensed massage therapists, colorists, nail technicians, and light bulbs. Spa services are performed in a separate, secluded area to minimize outside distractions and keep the massage oils from fraternizing with Moroccanoil hair serums.
Upon entering Massages Reduce Stress, guests are asked to remove their shoes. As they skate around the space in their socks or provided slippers, they can choose from 16 different massage modalities, including Swedish and hot-stone treatments as well as ones geared toward pregnant women and cancer patients. Body scrubs and nutrition advice from therapists supplement tissue work, with all treatments striving to lift away anxiety from clients’ bodies and send it into the atmosphere, where it will eventually plug up holes in the ozone layer. Therapists also devote themselves to their community by participating in local fundraisers, grand openings, and employee-appreciation events.
As an avid cyclist and licensed massage therapist, Liz Oehmen understands the discomfort that can be felt in the legs and hips. This personal experience, combined with her continuous pursuit of knowledge in her field, makes her uniquely suited to soothe aches at Sore No More Massage. Along with her specialization in sports massage, Oehmen employs a variety of modalities to help clients re-energize, detoxify, and relax. Therapeutic sessions employ techniques such as cupping and reflexology to address specific concerns, and prenatal massages ease the stress of filling out preschool applications. When Oehmen isn’t performing massages, she tends to clients with services such as manicures, body wraps, and ear candling. She also supports overall health by teaching raw-food-preparation and hula-hooping classes.

The stylists and aestheticians at Extasy Hair Studio & Spa pamper bodies from head to toe using natural beauty products. They rely on the therapeutic properties of essential oils and Éminence Organic Skin Care serums, as well as the acne-fighting benefits of fruit pulps and spices. Aveda remedies restore moisture to parched hair, and paraffin treatments hydrate dry feet better than socks soaked in Gatorade.
The full menu of services also includes haircuts, color, makeup applications, and massages. A children's room provides a place for kids to play and swap stock tips while parents get beautified.
Owner Shaun McMillin named his salon after his own two daughters, but he makes every client feel like a member of the family at Taylor Nicole Hair Salon & Spa, where aestheticians bring a personal touch to hair or skin treatments. The staff includes stylist instructor who specializes in haircutting for short and sassy locks and barrel-curl styles for long hair. The rest of the troupe also performs sleek cuts with practiced technique and shrewd fashion sense, offering keratin and coloring treatments that reinvigorate strands that look damaged or stripped of their glossy hues. On the spa side, UV- and spray-tanning services help bronze pale or transparent skin, and mani-pedis further aid clients' pursuit of head-to-toe beauty. Dr. Randa Sawan is also on hand to correct skin issues with Botox injections, dermal fillers, and laser hair-removal treatments.
