Tense and craggily bodies are swaddled in soul-smoothing tranquility in Trace Retreat Store & Spa's cozy interior. The signature facial ($75) delves deep into troubled pores, using galvanic currents and steam to revitalize weary complexions and balance mug moisture. During 30-minute microdermabrasion treatments ($60), diamond-tipped wands are waved above faces to buff away the top layer of cells and subsequently erase surface wrinkles, discoloration, and minor scars from failed first dates with bumblebees. Three aromatherapy choices enrich the aroma salt glow body-scrub treatment ($75 value), which exfoliates body skin to reveal a brighter, more youthful appearance from head to foot-finger.
Before graduating from Atlanta’s prestigious Life University, Doctor of Chiropractic James Moore of Harpeth Chiropractic received a bachelor of science in chemistry. The mix of micro-scientific rigor and macro, holistic understanding that he learned in his studies continues to influence his practice. Starting from basic symptoms, Dr. Moore moves from outward signs of distress to hidden, underlying causes, taking into account the entirety of each person’s physical state, lifestyle, and potential to be an incredibly realistic robot. After diagnosis, services such as chiropractic spinal adjustment, muscle-relaxing massage, and nutritional counseling help patrons on the route to overall health.

A native of Tennessee, Doctor of Chiropractic Sharon Roth's experience—from designing exercise programs for the elderly in senior homes to serving as chief spinal sleuth for the Nashville Sounds—reflects her ability to help people in all walks of life. While acting as a guest speaker on The Fox Network or when giving public talks, Dr. Roth advocates the importance of receiving chiropractic care, a belief she puts into practice at Roth Wellness. During sessions, she aims to get to the root of patients' issues, rather than merely masking their symptoms with drugs, surgery, or glittery Mardi Gras masks. This involves thorough consultations, exams, and x-rays, before she recommends a wellness plan such as spinal adjustments or therapeutic modalities.
Certified in the Brimhall Technique, Dr. Roth also sets clients on a course to optimum heath with six steps to wellness—structure, electromagnetic therapy, nutrition, emotional therapy, detoxification, and allergies and sensitivities—and maintains her skills in helping patients with conditions such as arthritis, acid reflux, and phobias of phobias by attending continuing-education courses.

The staff at Ona Ultimate Skincare—which includes a plastic surgeon Medical Director, Registered Nurse with more than a decade of experience, and two highly trained aestheticians—focuses on results-oriented treatments. And to that end, the medspa employs products from Neocutis, Revision, and Hylunia, as well as lasers from Cutera. The team deploys the Laser Genesis system to eradicate unwanted hair, reduce pore size, and smoothe scars, and they render Cutera TITAN light-energy sessions that focus on rebuilding collagen by heating the dermal layer. Ona's aestheticians also smooth epidermises with five types of customized facials and diamond-tip microdermabrasion treatments. The medspa’s efforts have been successful enough to get it featured on WSMV 4's Working 4 You.
