Named after the colorful bracelets that jangle on the wrists of many Indian women, Ruby’s Bangles gives its patrons an opportunity to partake in ancient Eastern beauty rituals. In the spa, aestheticians use eyebrow threading techniques inspired by Egyptian beauty rituals to remove unwanted hair. Skilled henna artists can transform hands and feet with dramatic plant-ink designs. The store's boutique boasts a wide selection of Indian-inspired jewelry, including bindis, necklaces, bangles, and hip chains for belly dancing or keeping prank-prone jeans from running away.
Melissa Simmons offers soothing facial treatments at Trilogy Salon, where she customizes her processes based on personal need and preference. Her treatments can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, oily skin, or acne, or simply can rejuvenate and refresh visages. At the salon, customers also will find nail services such as manicures and pedicures, and hair services such as cuts, extensions, and color treatments.
Dr. Ben Childers oversees Sheer Beauty Medical Skincare, a clinic dedicated to helping clients look their best. Licensed aestheticians perform a range of beauty treatments, including chemical peels, laser hair removal, and Botox fillers—all using high-grade equipment. The platelet-rich-plasma vampire facial uses blood to promote healing and collagen production in damaged skin, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and sun spots.
Spa days are meant to be relaxing retreats, but often focus more on beauty services than actual relaxation. The Kinetic Mind Body Wellness Center offers an alternative, what owner Stephanie Carper-Smith calls a Wellness Day.
Staffers encourage each person to kick off their Wellness Day by admiring the visual beauty of the center, including the fine art that bedecks the walls. While guests reflect, the staff plies them with glasses of water or hot cups of tea sweetened with organic honey or agave.
These may include everything from a relaxing massage and acupuncture to a structured fitness class, such as yoga. Full-spectrum infrared saunas can help clients by elevating core temperatures, lowering blood pressure, and even jump-starting the metabolic processes that contribute to weight loss. The center also provides nutritional therapy and holistic health coaching, a gentle form of guidance that doesn't involve anybody in shorts blowing whistles and shouting, "Get healthier, son!"

Paige of Therapeutic Massage by Paige combines that experience with her training at Hands-On Medical Massage School to relieve stress and muscle tension. Though she specializes in Swedish and deep-tissue modalities, she can also perform pregnancy, sports, and geometric-release therapies.
