Licensed massage therapists Andreas Correa, Missy Werner, and Kerri Holler use their knowledge of the human body to sleuth out the root cause of aches and pains, not just alleviate them. The therapists rely on a variety of different modalities to tailor their massage sessions to each client. Whether Kerri is employing the intense kneading of deep-tissue massage, Missy is targeting difficult muscle knots with hot stones, or Andreas is adding in the healing fragrances of aromatherapy, all of their services are priced at a flat rate. Clients can select the exact service they want and the duration they want them for, saving them the hassle of adding up additional costs or inquiring about the price for hearty pats on the back.
The skilled therapists at Massage On The Go are dedicated to healing aches and pains with customized, soothing services, reducing stress by drawing on modalities including deep tissue, myofascial release, and sport massage. Relief isn?t confined to their clinic?though the office is equipped with multiple treatment rooms and therapists, the team is ready to bring their services to client?s homes and offices. And lest the rest of the body become jealous, the staff also pampers clients with ion detox foot baths designed to release toxins from the whole body through the foot's pores.
From the street, Spa Sass? is barely distinguishable from the other little black awnings and narrow storefronts. But step inside, and the narrow storefront opens up into a 5,000-square-foot refuge from the downtown bustle.
Guests are encouraged to arrive 15 minutes early for their appointment, giving them ample time to slip into fluffy robes and slippers and sip complimentary juice or tea before being ushered into a private treatment room. Here, aestheticians strive to ensure a soothing experience by treating skin with the utmost delicacy. They nourish it with natural ingredients such as honey, cacao, and Dead Sea salts, and, during laser hair removal, they wield the SoftLight laser, whose beams are gentle enough to zap hair from faces without damaging pores.
The team of experienced therapists at Rebound Massage Therapy and Sports Wellness treat all of their clients with the same care they would show to a professional athlete. They design each of their massages with the end result in mind: depending on their individual clients, they might rely on relaxing Swedish strokes, stretching kneads, or trigger-point techniques that train muscles to kick their bad habits.
As often as they unwind knots in muscles, the staffers at Healing Spirit Touch also smooth out harder-to-find tangles in their clients? minds by presenting a slate of soothing services. The end goal of their holistic treatments remains the same, however: balance. Owners Barb Pickle and Hannah Heacock, along with their fellow therapists, administer a wide variety of massage and energy services, from reflexology to reiki and clairvoyant readings. They customize their services to the needs of each client through consultations, intuition, and specific tools. For example, different aromatherapy oils can augment massages with their respective effects: lavender causes calm, rosemary breeds positive vibes, and frankincense tells you what people named Frank smell like.
Barb carries that sense of harmony outside her center as well, conducting classes on the Colonial Office Campus that make use of her center's wellness strategies. A video tour of the facilities and its services can be seen on the their website.
When she isn't paddling a dragon boat down the Willamette River, licensed massage therapist Debra Oden helps her clients navigate the turbulent waters of stress, chronic pain, and injury toward relaxation. She customizes a fresh approach for every patient—drawing from more than 10 years of bodywork experience—whether visitors simply wish to relax or have recently injured themselves attempting to crab-walk up an escalator. To supplement her mastery of Swedish strokes and specialty styles such as pregnancy massage, she holds certifications in shiatsu, deep-tissue, and neuromuscular therapies. This leads to highly flexible wellness plans—guests might stop in for a one-time appointment or schedule recurring sessions that steadily unwind knots of tension. Regardless of the condition she treats, however, Debra's ultimate goal remains the same: to improve her clients’ quality of life.
