Kaitlyn Confer, a massage therapist at Family Rehab and Medical Massage, says that she loves helping her clients relax and forget about their day-to-day problems for a while. And she does so with the aid of her talented thumbs, which skillfully employ multiple modalities of massage ranging from the more intense deep-tissue massage to Swedish massage to gentle chair massage, which is ideal for tense office workers and their tense office chairs. She says that the best compliment she's ever received from a client is one that comes up again and again?a repeat visit. "It tells me that I've done a good job and provided excellent service," she says.
In addition to massage, she and her fellow staffers also provide spa services, including fat-melting body wraps and mind-soothing aromatherapy.

You might not be able to tell by looking at her now, but Natalie Bocard once suffered from hormonal acne and oily skin. For a lifelong fashionista, this was simply unacceptable. Natalie tirelessly researched methods to help her achieve the clear skin she dreamed about, and her eventual success inspired her to help others with similar concerns.
Today, Natalie is a licensed aesthetician and makeup artist with certifications in both microdermabrasion and airbrush makeup. At Natalie?s Notable Beauty, she helps her clients achieve healthy and youthful skin with services that include facials, body treatments, and spa parties. Her past experience has prepared her well for this current venture; aside from her aesthetic expertise, she spent 23 years as a NASA contractor, working with astronauts and researchers to treat the moon's perennially pockmarked fa?ade.
