At Massage Connection, licensed massage therapists aim to ensure that "every sight, sound, smell, and touch" makes clients feel good. While kneading muscles with light or firm hand movements, massage professionals attend to the client's comfort level, adjusting their methods to optimize relaxation and muscle health. Massages target basic aches and pains as well as the needs of expectant mothers, athletes, and milkmaids. Other spa services, including body scrubs and mud-mask treatments, draw out impurities and leave skin feeling supple. In contrast to relaxation-based options, sauna-treatment sessions promote weight-loss by warming the body, inducing sweating, and burning fat.

Epic Skin Care owner Cymone Charles recognizes that everyone’s skin is different, varying in color, type, texture, and tone. That's why she uses botanical-based Bioelements products to create a diverse array of facials. The women’s signature facial softens and smoothes the skin with a high-frequency treatment and the back treatment clears up the skin on the shoulders so that clients can wear backless pajamas to work with confidence. There's even a men’s signature facial that banishes breakouts and ingrown hairs with a deep pore cleansing. Epic Skin Care’s other spa services are equally adaptable: Aestheticians wax 20 distinct face and body areas on both men and women, and nail specialists perform manicures and pedicures that can be enhanced with aromatherapy soaks and coconut-mango foot and leg massages.
It's a fair question: what can chiropractors do that normal doctors can't? The answer lies not in chiropractors' abilities, but their approach. Rather than treat back or neck pain with chemical medications, chiropractors treat physical problems with physical solutions. It's as simple as that, although they must often draw on advanced knowledge of human anatomy to discover the root causes behind muscular or skeletal complaints.
Fortunately, Doctor of Chiropractic John Staub possesses such knowledge. At Avarta Wellness, he uses a range of techniques to heal spines injured in auto accidents, athletic competitions, and grizzly-bear rodeos. Whether he's gently realigning vertebrae or manually checking the spine for blocked nerves, Staub always keeps his patients' comfort in mind.
