Every local community has a story, a history, and a unique personality that cannot be replicated. This is often thanks to specialized, small-scale businesses, like this one, which contribute to a neighborhood’s distinctive character and promote a thriving ecosystem in their community. Small, independent businesses offer diverse products and services, fostering economic resilience by removing the local economy’s dependence on a single industry. When you buy local, you build local, and deepen your connection to your own community.
As a result, patronizing a local business like this is an act of community building. Check out their website to learn more about the local experience you can discover today.

Doors to Heaven Spa
Under the leadership of spa president Sandra Vascones, the corps of therapists and beauticians at Doors to Heaven keep clients looking their best with aesthetic skills that they regularly brush up in continuing education classes. Body-buffing services include waxing and cavitation, which helps patrons shed pounds by dissolving fat. Those looking to unwind can opt for massage, which deploys modalities as Swedish massage and deep tissue massage to dissolve stress that has accumulated in the body after too many nights spent shouting at nearby owls to be quiet.
