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.

Simple Healing Touch Massage
At Simple Healing Touch Massage, the massage therapists ease tension and stress with a variety of massage modalities. Swedish massages boost oxygen flow and circulation and decrease muscle toxins thanks to the massage therapist's long, gliding strokes in the direction of blood flowing back to the heart. Deep-tissue massages are similar, but focus on the deepest layers of muscle tissue to relieve chronic pain. Clients can also indulge in hot-stone massages, which employ smooth, water-heated stones—rather than rocks from the studio's backyard volcano—to ease stiff muscles. In addition, the studio offers bodywork sessions specifically for athletes, pregnant women, and seniors.
