Every local community has a story, a history, and a unique personality that cannot be replicated. This is often thanks to specialized, small-scale businesses, like this one, which contribute to a neighborhood’s distinctive character and promote a thriving ecosystem in their community. Small, independent businesses offer diverse products and services, fostering economic resilience by removing the local economy’s dependence on a single industry. When you buy local, you build local, and deepen your connection to your own community.
As a result, patronizing a local business like this is an act of community building. Check out their website to learn more about the local experience you can discover today.

At Massaggio Galore, licensed massage therapist Ray Misra offers an escape from stress and tension with The Ray Special. The three-hour massage package includes a variety of modalities, including Swedish, deep-tissue, and mysofascial release techniques. But he can work his magic in just an hour, too, using the same techniques to loosen the muscles and relax the mind. His other services include sports massage, which is ideal for those injured on the field or while dumping a barrel of Gatorade over their boss's head. He takes his healing hands to those who have trouble traveling to the studio through mobile services.
