We Are Hiring

We are looking for a massage therapist (preferably female). In addition, we are looking for a nail technician to join us on a booth-rental basis. If you are interested in working with us, or know someone who might be interested, please send us email:

Nail Services Are Back!

After a while with no nail tech, we have found a very good one. Need to pamper those hands and feet? Please call to make an appointment for one of our excellent manicure or pedicure treatments.

No Acupuncture for a While

We have lost our acupuncturist. Until we find a new one, there will be no acupuncture for a while. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Check our our new slide show on the News Page!

Notice to Our Clients Who Have Had Japanese Thermal Straightening

We apologize if your results were not totally satisfactory. We are now using the Milbon Liscio thermal conditioning straightening system. This system, which is imported from Japan, is the best available. We recommend all clients who are interested in thermal straightening to try this system. We are certain you will be pleased with the results.

We professionally recommend, use and sell Bioelements Custom Blend skin care products and Ion hair care products.
