Licensed massage therapist and skincare expert Irina Ionina had always dreamed of running her own spa where she can heal others while fostering relaxation and well-being. Having opened Ganesha Spa, she’s achieved that goal, and now spends her days practicing eight modalities of massage, such as shiatsu and hot stone, to relieve muscle tension and alleviate stress. She also rejuvenates skin with anti-aging treatments such as chemical peels, microdermabrasion, dermaplaning, micro-needling, and nonsurgical face-lifts, and hosts kundalini mediation classes each Monday from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Dr. Lance A. Johnson and his staff of massage therapists and acupuncturists combine their noninvasive skill sets to administer holistic healing without the need for drugs or surgery. He envisions the entire person being well, not just having healthy lungs or healthy knees or healthy banana-peel sensors. This approach, in Dr. Johnson's view, dodges the problem of merely making patients' symptoms go away instead of getting to the root of those symptoms' cause. His staff devotes themselves to getting to this root and, once there, correcting it with such tried and true chiropractic techniques as adjustments, massages, or physical therapy.

The primary concerns for Doctors of Chiropractic Sclafani and Healy are to alleviate their patients’ pain and prevent its recurrence. Whether patients are injured on the job or on the ball field, whether they’re dealing with back or neck pain, the chiropractors get them functioning again through use of massage and physical therapy as well as in-office adjustments. They treat everything from carpal tunnel syndrome and arthritis to pinched nerves and sciatica. In correcting postures and movements, they also help patients prevent the return of injury or pain and teach them a number of exercises to assist in the process.
As a nationally certified and licensed massage therapist with a master's degree in special education, Jolie Schiering knows the power that touch can have to reduce anxiety and show support. Drawing on this experience and more than 1,000 hours of bodywork instruction, Jolie tempers troubled sinews with a variety of massage techniques. Lounging in a private room, clients prepare for Swedish, shiatsu, or hot-stone bodywork as the scented tendrils of aromatherapy oils uncurl through the air. When not calming muscles as a therapist, Jolie uses knowledge gained while acquiring a personal-training license to compete in races such as the San Diego Marathon, and obtained CPR certification from Red Cross.
Executive Park Physical Therapy buzzes with movement as patients bounce on trampolines, jog on treadmills, and pedal recumbent bikes. Designed by a staff of four licensed physical therapists, these therapeutic routines help patients to heal from injuries and relieve the pain of chronic conditions. Massage therapists decompress spinal disks and wrap limbs in kinesio tape to retrain the neuromuscular system following sprains and strains from playing Red Rover with the Rockettes. A colorful assortment of free weights helps patients to strengthen weak muscles, and high-tech tools such as cold lasers and thermal ultrasound machines spirit away pain and inflammation. To open the lines of communication, multilingual staffers assist patients in English or Spanish, unlike some specialty physical-therapy offices that communicate strictly in haikus written in Klingon.
