Gravy, Randy, Jann, and Stephanie arrive at the location at 7:00 pm. The owner let us in and we took a quick walk through of the building and heard the claims. The group brought in their equipment and began setting up and taking environmental readings. The owner wanted to stay during the investigation and we welcomed that as she was also sensitive.

During set up the group attempted to debunk some of the claims listed below. Jann and Stephanie tried to debunk the giggle heard in the nail room by having Stephanie go outside and giggle. She could be heard from inside and right next door there is an orthodontist office; however, it was closed that day. Randy and Gravy tried to debunk the door closing claim by checking around the door for heating/cooling vents and seeing if the door was plumb. The group looked in the salon for shelves with any type of beads that could have rolled off and possibly bounced and hit the stylist, there was nothing around and the client she was working on also witnessed it.

When the group was just about finished setting up they discussed the new "Trigger Object" kit that was going to be used during the investigation. Jann mentioned she used to play jacks when she was younger as that was one of the objects in the kit and a noise that sounded like a groan was heard from the back hallway. Jann went in the back hallway and sat on the floor and played with the jacks for a bit to see if she could get any interaction.


  • One of the stylists had a small bead thrown at her while working with a client in the salon
  • A massage therapist was pushed from behind while walking down the hall
  • A nail tech and client both heard a child giggle in the nail salon
  • A male figure has been seen in one of the massage rooms
  • A door repeatedly opens and a robe hanging on the wall in the same room has been pulled as if someone was picking it up by the bottom hem
  • A metal wall hanging has been shifted on the wall numerous times

START TIME: 9:19 pm

LOCATION: Basement

The group and the owner situated themselves in the basement. The group observed 5 minutes of silence to get accustomed to the natural sounds of the building. It wasn't long before the group heard what sounded like a muffled conversation between a man and a woman. Gravy and Randy went upstairs to make sure that the front door was locked and no one was in the building. It was noted that Steph, Jann and the owner couldn't hear them upstairs moving around. After they came back down and again were situated the group heard music playing. We checked the open basement area and could faintly hear music playing from one of the corners. After checking upstairs again, it turns out that a neighboring house had outdoor speakers with music playing loudly and that explained the activity. No other activity occurred during the EVP session in this area and the group moved to a new location.

END TIME: 9:50 pm

START TIME: 10:01 pm

LOCATION: Main Level

The group situated themselves throughout the main level back hallway. Randy sat in outside the Water Room, Gravy outside the Wood Room, Jann in the Earth Room, and Stephanie sat in the Fire Room with the owner. The group observed silence again noting some settling in the building. At 10:07 pm a thud sound came from a wall, the source was undetermined. At 10:22 pm Jann and Gravy heard a growl noise come from inside the Earth Room after Stephanie asked for the robe to be moved. Stephanie and the owner decided to close the door to their room at 10:24 pm to see if it would open on its own. Jann heard knocking coming from the Earth Room at about the same time but again the noise couldn't be identified. No other notable activity occurred at this time and the group decided to head to the reception area.

END TIME: 10:34 pm

START TIME: 11:13 pm

LOCATION: Reception Area

After the group took a small break we spread out and observed 5 minutes of silence. After the control silence was concluded, they began an EVP session. Stephanie and the owner were in the nail salon, Randy and Jann were in the hair salon and Gravy was in the reception area. We were all within earshot of each other. At 11:14 pm, Jann and Randy noted a knocking noise coming from the sink area of the hair salon but couldn't figure out what it was coming from. At 11:17 pm, two knocks were heard after asking for two knocks. No other activity occurred during this time and the group decided to re-visit the basement.

END TIME: 11:38 pm

START TIME: 11:43 pm

LOCATION: Basement

The group spread out in the basement again and began an EVP session. At 11:51 pm the owner experienced goose bumps after Gravy started to ask questions to the male figure in a more forceful tone. Jann checked the temperature around the owner and oddly it was actually rising. Jann and the owner switched places to see what would happen. At 12:02 am Jann felt a cobweb feeling on her face and the owner felt a touch on the back of her neck. There weren't any spider webs or anyone near them within touching distance.

At 12:11 am Gravy saw a green flash of light on the ceiling in a corner of the basement. No explanation for the light was found. After a question was asked by the group about what the owner's middle name was there was a noise heard that sounded like an inaudible word at 12:19 am. The group then asked another question and seemed to get a response at 12:21 am. We couldn't find the source of the noise. The owner felt as if the male figure was aggravated at some of the questions that were asked.

No other events occurred during this session and the group decided to head upstairs.

END TIME: 12:30 am

START TIME: 12:36 am

LOCATION: Main Level

The group situated themselves throughout the main level back hallway again. Gravy was in the Fire Room, Stephanie sat in the hallway outside the Water Room, Jann and the owner sat in the Earth Room, and Randy sat in the hallway near the additional trigger objects of a Barbie and horse figurine.

At 12:45 am, taps were heard from in the Wood and Earth Rooms, which adjoin. A few seconds after that Jann and the owner heard music and then had a foul smell in the room. At 12:53 am Randy, Stephanie and the owner decided to move to the hair salon on the other side of the building so Gravy and Jann could try some provoking. We also wanted to see if the owner would continue to feel the sense of aggravation from the male figure. The owner notes at 12:57 am, she still feels "they" are aggravated, upset and she felt nervous. At 1:02 am, she can feel a wave of calm come over her as if "they" were gone. Stephanie and Randy decided to have the owner think of a random word, (home), for the spirits to go yell at Gravy and Jann.

No other events occurred at this time and the group decided to take a break.

END TIME: 1:16 am

START TIME: 1:41 am

LOCATION: Basement

Before the group headed down to the basement, Gravy set up his green grid light in the hallway where it would be picked up by one of their video cameras. The group went back downstairs again and spread out for an EVP session. They recorded no activity and decided to head back upstairs.

END TIME: 2:06 am

START TIME: 2:10 am

LOCATION: Main Level

The group decided to do one more EVP session in the back hallway. They didn't have any activity and decided to wrap it up.

END TIME: 2:23 am

Before the group left, we decided to try and debunk the metal wall hanging noise by playing music near it to see if it would reverberate enough to move on the wall. We could not get it to move. After gathering their equipment and packing up, the owner was notified, thanked, and the group left.




This was PIM's first visit to this location. We were called in because of the activity and curiosity as to why it is happening. We tried to debunk all of the claims and were successful with a few but most of us had personal experiences and those couldn't be explained.

PIM would like to stress that the activity at the business is anything but threatening and nothing there should be feared by any of the employees or clients there. The claims of activity at this location are varied and extraordinary, but they do not occur very often which leads us to believe this location has low activity overall.

PIM would like to thank those who made this investigation possible and would be happy to come back to do a follow-up investigation at a later date.
