Integrated Touch and Bodywork
Judith Allen, owner of Integrated Touch and Bodywork, started her own salon to break free from the rigid atmosphere of her previous employers. "I guess I couldn't follow rules anymore," she guffaws. "I'm getting old!" Now, she's free to perform specialized beauty services—including Brazilian waxes, gel manicures, and spa facials—in whatever way she sees fit. Judith's boisterous wit and upbeat nature keep clients laughing through services, assuaging the pain of losing a hangnail that had a nickname. A tree-ringed brick pathway leads to the door of her salon, where classical-style pillars support glass-topped tables and leafy plants point the way to private treatment rooms.
