Leading Edge salon has a great vibe. It feels more like a spa experience with a mellow kind of energy - head and neck massages (your choice of aromatherapy oil) and none of the loud crazy music than many salons subject you to. The staff is always friendly and welcoming. Additionally, they use Aveda products and have a great selection of products for purchase. I had been going to Leading Edge for years, and when my stylist left, I left with her - but now I'm back.

Todd is a healer in the true sense of the word. He brings from his world travels an expertise and a skill that is not often found in the healing world. Japanese acupuncture, which is what Todd practices, is non-invasive in nature so if you have any concerns about discomfort - you don't need to. His approach is quiet and calming and his technique is flawless. Todd has helped me in using his huge body of knowledge in Japanese acupuncture therapy. In addition, Todd is a great guy with a beautiful spirit and heart.

I was referred to Auto Body and More and was told they were honest and they really take care of their customers. I didn't need any more convincing than that. Bryan and his team took great care with my car, communicating with me at each step so I knew exactly where they were in the process. They couldn't have been nicer to work with and my car looks brand spankin' new. I hope I don't need them again, but it's good to know there is a great company with super nice people who will get the job done when you need it. No stress, good prices, great service, nice folks - Auto Body and More is a winner.
