This is going to be very hard to please ask when something doesn't make sense.

I have a site that the client wants very few clicks to get to the content they need. I really want to use this CMS. I have the first level there...with the main content and main navigation showing up. Think of a Spa. The Spa has Services. Services is the highest level, so it's on the main navigation. So, I have a template for that Services page because it'll have a description (overall) of Services and a nice little picture. But within the main Services there will be a hand full of Categories of Services like: Facials, Massages, Beauty, etc (see image). Now...each of those Categories will also have content, that need to be displayed in a similar tabular fashion like in the screenshot (see image).

Then, going even one more deeper...there will be links inside once more, that will bring up something similar to a lightbox or some overlay. I thought jQuery would be perfect for all this, but I can't seem to get the second level content into the boxes

here's a screenshot of the overlay once they click on a link from within the tabbed box (like if they clicked 'The Subtle Blush'):

So in theory, there are three levels.
1 --> Services (has content that shows on the screen with a submenu that i want in tabs)
2 ----------> Facials (has content that will also have submenu)
3 --------------------> The Subtle Blush (has content that i want in a lightbox/overlay)
