Pediatrician Dr. Julie O'Toole founded Kartini Clinic, an inpatient, outpatient, and day treatment center, twenty years ago. The family-centered clinic treats adolescents and young adults, ages six to eighteen, who are dealing with eating disorders ranging from anorexia and bulimia to food phobias. The team of pediatricians, therapists, and counselors focuses on helping people restore their optimal weight to ensure healthy development. The center provides housing for patients' families through the local Ronald McDonald House.

For glow-inducing facials, organic waxing (bikini, brows, et al), vegan eyebrow tinting, and skilled clean-makeup application using brands like Intelligent Nutrients, One Love Organics, and RMS, this cozy, women-run Portland studio is by far your best bet. The studio is open seven days a week, the vibe is low-key, and the aesthetic is akin to hanging out a friend's bungalow rather than an aesthetician's office.

The design at Löyly (which is Finnish for the steam that comes off hot rocks at a sauna) is distinctly Scandinavian, with straightforward hardwood floors, clean light woods, and minimalist wooden lounge chairs occupying the communal space. It’s just a $23 fee to get in, but we recommend springing for one of their famous—obviously Swedish-style—massages, which start at a reasonable $45. This is the larger of the two locations (with more saunas), but there's another outpost in Southeast Portland.
