Always looking to learn new things, licensed massage therapist Ashley Haydel studied massage and bodywork and now wants to earn her bachelor of science in alternative health and holistic medicine. She believes massage bridges both medical and holistic disciplines, and the massages she performs help treat a wide array of issues.

In the words of its holistic, spiritually minded massage therapists, Nirvana Studio for Wellness and Massage is a place "where every day feels like a day at the beach." In part, this is because therapists use indigenous Hawaiian traditions to heal and refresh, delivering Mana Lomi healing treatments and lomi ili'ili sessions that target the spirit, muscles, and bones alike. Regardless of their preferred service, clients can further elevate their experience with such add-ons as hot-stone therapy, aromatherapy, and an abundance of beautifying scrubs and wraps.
A Smart Tan certified salon that's been locally owned and operated since 1997, Sunscape Tanning Salon banishes pale hues with a variety of skin-bronzing services. Their SuperSonic standup booth infuses skin with color borrowed straight from sun, and their exclusive airbrush formula mimic a trip to the beach without the UV exposure. In addition to their extensive tanning experience and education, the highly trained staff continues the beauty enhancements with waxing services from brow to leg and facials that benefit teens, men, and women.
Like a trail of breadcrumbs in a dense forest, organic spa treatments guide guests to beauty and graceful, healthy aging at Vita Revive's European-inspired retreat. An expert team, including clinical aestheticians, a certified nutritional consultant, and a master reiki practitioner, reflects Vita Revive’s hybrid identity as both a wellness center and a spa. Together, these professionals blend Eastern and Western approaches, soothing stress with the ancient kneading of massage and targeted pressure of reflexology while fighting fine lines and wrinkles with modern facial treatments that rely on glycolic acid, pressurized oxygen, and microcurrents. Advanced technology fuels the spa’s infrared sauna and infrared body wraps, whereas old-fashioned water works its timeless wonders during a Vichy shower, whose high-pressure jets create a rain massage so that clients don't have to squeeze into their dishwasher for a full cycle.
As its name implies, the spa and wellness center incorporates USDA-approved organic ingredients into its treatments, crafting body wraps with seaweed algae extracts, moor mud, and Mediterranean wine and honey. The space itself also pays homage to the natural world with the earthy beige tones and bamboo flooring that outfit seven private treatment rooms.
