    We have an integrative massage clinic which has been in Utah county for 12 years. Unfortunately for us, and for anyone who needs our team’s expertise and hasn’t found us yet, there doesn’t appear to be a category for us! There are multiple categories for beauty in the “health and beauty” section. Some for larger businesses such as a spa, and various types of individual services. May I suggest, and request that our service industry be added to this contest? Thank you for your time and consideration.

Plus the beauty of her heart and soul matches her face! I told her that I was her new best friend.. she laughed. But ever since she has transformed my hair into something so extremely beautiful. I come at least once a week to get my hair done by Jill Johnson. Sometimes twice a week. Just to see and talk to her plus get my hair done. She is my Heaven from my crazy life!! Just love her❤❤❤
