Norma Brinker could be called a natural. Starting at a very young age, she honed her skills painting for the fun of it, eventually earning a college degree doing what she loves best. Today, she brings a wealth of experience and a bag of ideas to her studio, Noric Art & Wellness, where she inspires amateur artists with her passion for painting. During Friday night's BYOB classes, florid brush strokes alternate with delicate sips while Norma instructs students on painting pre-made portraits of hearts, trees, and scenic blank canvases. When not teaching art classes, Norma puts her skills as a licensed massage therapist to work by doling out massages, cupping treatments, and reflexology.
The licensed aestheticians of Simply Nails and Spa have one goal in mind: make their clients' nails look great. To that end, they offer spa manicures and pedicures, gel nails, and intricate nail art delivered in a professional, no-frills environment. Come in and sink into a cushy chair and dip toes into a sea salt soak, then have nails buffed, filed, and polished to perfection by one of the friendly staff. Clients can also opt for French and shellac pedicures to give feet more oomph than a glitzy pair of Christmas socks. Simply Nails and Spa provides free mimosas upon request and also offers massage and waxing services.

The therapists at Holistic Integrative Solutions don't waste their time trying to sleuth out the cause of a particular ache or pain. Instead, they take a step back and examine the condition of a client's entire body and mind. After this big-picture analysis, they devise alternative-medicine treatment plans that tend to the whole person, not just the symptoms. Their treatment services range from Swedish massage and aromatherapy to meditation and prayer, with each session geared toward healing of body and spirit.
