Herbel Healing is an independent distributor of Young Living, a company that makes therapeutic-grade essential oils for an array of purposes. For instance, the thyme oil can help thwart bacteria and the peppermint oil can help detoxify the liver. Depending on clients’ needs, Herbel Healing’s staff can drip their oils onto backs during essential-oil therapy or firmly knead them into feet during reflexology sessions.
At Calm Spirit Acupuncture, licensed practitioners expert in both acupuncture and Chinese herbology work to treat conditions ranging from chronic pain to gastrointestinal, psychological, and neurological disorders. After consulting with patients, staff employ traditional treatments ranging from energy-balancing acupuncture to gua sha and cupping therapy used to treat respiratory conditions.
After receiving his MBA and a doctorate from Palmer College of Chiropractic, Dr. Chris Tomshack opened his own practice. But one wasn't enough. He needed a real challenge, so he opened two more—all while studying the successes of other industries. With this knowledge and experience stowed safely in his hippocampus's glovebox, he eventually launched his own nationwide franchise: HealthSource Chiropractic and Progressive Rehab.
Today, his chiropractors work alongside massage therapists and rehab experts as they craft custom action plans to help their patients overcome common ailments—such as neck pain and headaches—as well as severe conditions. Their Progressive Rehab method combines chiropractic techniques with rehabilitation therapies to relieve nerve pressure and pain. When they aren't nudging rebellious vertebrae, staffers stock a gourmet coffee bar with complimentary treats that always know just what to say.
Healing Touch Massage Therapy founder Lori Garcia certainly sees the relaxing benefits of her trade. She finds that massage can act as a stress combatant that prevents the onset of disease, or simply, as she puts it, as "a positive ripple effect" that resounds throughout her clients' personal and professional lives. Her private rooms—warm, low-lit spaces with comfortable massage beds and lullaby karaoke—most definitely contribute to the spa's restful vibe.
But Lori is also an advocate of the more acute applications of massage, as she specializes in medical and therapeutic treatment. Upon receiving her certification, she pursued advanced training in 11 different techniques, including oncology massage, reflexology, and applied kinesiology. To that end, she performs 16 types of body treatments at Healing Touch, which range from neuromuscular and trigger-point therapy to hot-stone massage and raindrop technique. She has recently expanded into detoxifying therapies as well (including ionic footbaths and far-infrared body wraps), and will soon be introducing aesthetic services.
Roxie Falco started out as a makeup artist, but she soon came to view her work as more of a Band-Aid than a real solution for problem skin. So she pursued numerous certifications at the Colorado School for Paramedical Aesthetics and began addressing skin concerns head on instead of just covering them up. Now, at Flawless Skin Studio, she takes this one step further; under the belief that no two complexions are the same, she’s made it a point to customize every treatment to meets the unique needs of the individual and their skin. This goes for all of her services, whether she’s conducting a signature revitalizing facial, a skin awakening peel, or a gentleman’s hot towel facial.
