After a soft opening in December 2013, Massage Heights celebrated the grand opening of the franchise’s 100th retreat in the Iowa River Landing in January 2014. Since then, Massage Heights has become a go-to destination for relaxation and rejuvenation. As the first anniversary of their grand opening approaches, Massage Heights will be expanding their service menu to include facial peels and 90-minute facials.

WineStyles Opens


WineStyles Tasting Station opened in the fall 2014. In addition to hundreds of hand-selected wines and craft beer, WineStyles features a large selection of unique merchandise you won’t find at an ordinary retail store. Shoppers can choose from a variety of gift baskets, delicious chocolates, gourmet food, and specialty items. Looking ahead to 2015, WineStyles is excited to continue to offer public tastings and special events for wine and beer enthusiasts in the area.
