Duos can celebrate holidays, anniversaries, or Skeleton Appreciation Day during the 60-minute couples massage, in which two massage therapists help pairs unwind, pampering their limbs and musculature with a choice of massage. For a more pointed approach to ailments, acupuncture's hair-thin, sterile needles can puncture into the shallow chi speedways beneath the skin to direct healing energy around the body. The ancient healing art is believed to treat maladies such as abdominal pain, arthritis, and tendonitis when coupled with softly crooned lullabies.
Industrial, chic décor contrasts the warm, dark-hardwood floors in the expansive garage-turned-spa space. Stylish accent walls add vibrant splashes to each room, pleasing eyes with soothing earth-tone colors to match the soothing treatments, resulting in a state of relaxation usually reserved for soaking in an adenosine bubble bath.
Though Gateway Bodyworks sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
Gateway Bodyworks owner Lisa Firey believes deeply in the power of holistic treatments, as she has seen remarkable results firsthand. When her beloved dog, Porter, came down with an immune disease, doctors attempted to treat the symptoms with Western medicine. She suspected the medicines were weakening Porter’s immune system, so she began to research alternative methods. Soon she was treating her dog with vitamin C, nasturtium, and dandelion root, as well as massage. This method reenergized Porter and prolonged his life. Impassioned by this discovery, Lisa went on to earn a degree in muscle therapy and is now pursuing a doctorate in natural health.
Today, Lisa employs a staff of 20 experts to practice holistic healing methods. Within her garage-turned-spa space, her team focuses on acupuncture, bodywork, and massage. During reflexology treatments, therapists push pressure points on the feet, relieving stress and removing stuck-on shoe inserts. Acupuncturists treat everything from fatigue to autoimmune disorders and suggest herbal remedies. Alternatively, massage therapists use the long, languid strokes of the Swedish modality, and can also alleviate pain related to sports injuries, pregnancy, and postpregnancy. To round out the center, Lisa also set up a yoga studio with classes such as Hatha, Mommy & Me, and Kundalini.
