The experienced staff at WellnessOne of Eastgate eases tension and corrects misaligned spines in a relaxing, patient-focused setting. During a one-hour massage, muscle manipulators bring skilled fingers to bear on downtrodden tissue. Massagees can choose from options including prenatal, deep-tissue, lymphatic, and hot-stone massage (hot-stone massages must be scheduled in advance), helping them depart from the premises with muscular fibers singing as harmoniously as a barbershop quartet, instead of screeching like the lead singer in a Norwegian death-metal barbershop quartet.

If you hang around outside Distinctive Tan, you might notice a trend: everyone leaving the building has great-looking skin. At both locations, clients can get a custom bronze in either a UV tanning bed?of which the facilities offer a diverse array?or within Mystic Tan airbrush booths. But tanning isn't the only focus of the salons, which have been in business for more than 20 years. Their knowledgeable, Smart Tan?certified staff also supplies WhiteICE teeth-whitening kits and administers red-light therapy, a treatment designed to firm skin and minimize wrinkles wrought by age or time spent trying to impersonate an accordion.
Given her cool expertise, one can be forgiven for thinking that Molly Peebles has owned and operated The Joyous Tulip Birth & Holistic Healing Service for decades. Her path as a therapist and doula actually began a mere 18 years ago, when her son was born. Having been guided through her pregnancy by a certified nurse-midwife, she felt compelled to give other women the same support system by becoming a doula.
Before long, Molly was studying at Bastyr University to become a certified birth doula and had graduated from several massage programs. She draws on all of her diverse skills at The Joyous Tulip, where her growing service menu includes pregnancy massage, postpartum massage, and other types of bodywork designed to ease the pains of carrying around a child for nine months or pushing a boulder uphill for eternity.

Far removed from the revolving door of many health clinics, Doctor of Naturopathy Ashley D. May takes time to get to know his patients. Before administering any of his drug-free services, such as acupuncture, massage therapy, or chiropractic adjustments, he learns about patients through consultations, combing through their health history and telephoning their high-school principal. He uses this information to formulate a custom treatment to help clients overcome a full range of ailments.
