At Premier Life Massage, the team members are not interested in temporary fixes when it comes to their patients’ health. Through their treatments, they strive to relieve pain with long-term holistic solutions, whether they are realigning the spine with chiropractic adjustments, kneading muscles with various massage styles, or facilitating systemic well-being with nutrition programs. Massages can be tailored based on an initial 10-minute, one-on-one consultation with a doctor. Patients can also work with Dr. Lance Stromberg, D.C., who may recommend x-rays and a posture assessment to improve on their next massage–techniques much less insulting than asking the patient if he or she has ever starred in The Hunchback of Notre Dame.
Guided by a team of experienced physicians, Clinical Skin Therapeutics’ technicians beautify bodies and freshen faces with noninvasive cosmetic treatments in a safe, comfortable environment. Spindly spider veins’ death grip on patients’ lower limbs is loosened by a laser that sends blood vessels scurrying away like so many plasma-filled dust bunnies. Though experiences can vary, 30 minutes is usually enough time to treat one area of skin on each leg, such as both thighs, both calves, or both webbed knees, and most clients see results in two to four treatments spaced six weeks apart.
Body wraps increase circulation in target areas. When coupled with botanical extracts and gentle warmth, this can have a range of positive effects. Those effects are the goals of The Wrap Advantage, and they can include everything from weight loss to smoother skin. Some of this takes place through a process called lipolysis, in which the ingredients applied with the wrap help break down fat cells. Wraps are also intended to release the toxins that can build up in fats, as well as lessen cellulite, and the staff at The Wrap Advantage can help each patron identify their own health and aesthetic goals.
Licensed massage therapist ToniRose understands that each client is different and not everyone needs the same massage. She can customize services with modalities ranging from prenatal to deep tissue in order to treat a wide range of symptoms, such as the overworked muscles of a construction worker or the special needs of an expectant construction worker. Along with her standard massage services, she also offers chair massages to simply relax after a long day.
Licensed massage therapist Natalie Schuler worked the salon circuit until opening Gentle Health Alternatives in 2011. Since then, she’s been practicing her trade in the welcoming studio, inviting clients to relinquish the stress of the outside world and indulge in Swedish, deep-tissue, or pre-natal massages. To further pamper her guests, she doles out salt glow scrubs, hot and cold stone massages, and detoxifying foot soaks.
