Healing and intuition are in Tamara's blood. Her family tree is rife with psychics and empaths, and she channels those genetic talents in her work at Reiki at the Ranch. As a medium, she doles out clarity and closure, and as an animal communicator, she soothes troubled critters. In addition to practicing energy work such as reiki on humans and horses alike, she administers hypnosis to help her clients lose weight, overcome addiction, and fully ignore clock pendulums.
At Acupuncture by Kim, licensed massage practitioner Kristin Taylor melts muscle knots with therapeutic strokes and eases stress with calming skin and body treatments. Kristin offers her signature massage in 40-, 60-, and 90-minute increments, relaxing clients with soft, flowing strokes and the gentle touch of cranial-sacral therapy. Ideal for clients battling the aches of fibromyalgia, TMJ, or migraine headaches, the delicate headwork Kristin performs during the cranial-sacral segment can enhance clients’ quality of life by boosting joint flexibility, dampening anxiety, and dissolving undigested popsicles. The skilled massage therapist also partners with other alternative health practitioners such as licensed acupuncturist Kim Blaufuss to help clients fight chronic pain with a holistic repertoire of services. In addition to enjoying massages in the studio, clients may purchase tools such as flaxseed hot packs and still-point inducers to tame tension at home.
Bohemian Massage & Bodywork's featured massage therapist, Valerie Kelly, honed her craft at chiropractic offices, spas, and sports-treatment facilities for years. This diversity has helped Valerie develop a signature massage style that fuses therapeutic care with spa-like pampering. Her roster includes clinical treatments, such as therapeutic massages to help rehabilitate after auto accidents and sports-related barroom brawls. She can also perform lavish seaweed wraps and sugar and salt body scrubs. As a trained doula, she has the know-how to help ease pregnancy woes with labor and birth massages or memorialize the experience with plaster belly casts of expectant mothers.
Dr. Troy Dreiling has taken his passion for chiropractic outside the usual places. In the past 18 years, he's opened clinics in Romania, served on Panamanian missions, raised money for charity, and hosted a family-friendly radio show that discusses healthy choices.
Dr. Dreiling hasn't neglected his office, however. At Zenaptic Chiropractic, he strives to alleviate all types of corporeal discomfort with a combination of traditional and high-tech treatments: adjustments and massages work alongside heated hydro-massages and traction treatments. A firm believer in "Dr. You," Dr. Dreiling also empowers patients by teaching them self-care techniques, such as stretches, nutrition tips, and ways to distinguish a safe motorcycle jump from a risky one.
Adults love to drink coffee. Kids love to play. But unless you have a frappuccino-filled swimming pool in your backyard, there aren't many places where both activities can take place. That's where Little Cups & Grownups comes in. Part cafe and part play-space, Little Cups allows adults to relax and converse as their children interact in a supervised area stocked with toys and books. Baristas pour Caffe D'arte coffee and espresso drinks alongside salads, chicken wraps, and turkey paninis, while parties provide kids with snacks and drinks of their own, including personal pizzas and juice.
The technicians at Holistic Vibrations believe healing begins at the cellular level, so they employ pulsated electromagnetic-field therapy that helps naturally raise cell vibration, increasing immune function, tissue healing, and balancing of the sympathetic nervous system and the body's biorhythms. And they aren't the only ones. Electromagnetic-field therapy has been written about in thousands of scientific publications and was featured on The Dr. Oz Show. The therapy uses magnetic-resonance stimulation to encourage cells' health, which relieves pain and injury throughout the body.
