With a fitness center, a spa, a physical-therapy center, and a boutique all spread over 9,000 square feet, Zenergy Boise Health Club & Spa aims to function as a single stop for all things wellness. After hitting the cardio, free weights, and functional training equipment—or one of the 30 group training classes held each week—members can head to the eucalyptus steam room to detox, sweat, and figure out how they get eucalyptus trees to exhale all that steam. A team of personal trainers and physical therapists are onsite daily, helping members to make the most of their workouts and keep their bodies fit and injury-free. Stop by the boutique on the way in or out to shop for fitness and yoga apparel, as well as the skincare products used at the spa.
At Resonance Natural Health Group, massage therapist Erica Gomez doesn't subscribe to the “take a pill for that” method of healing. Instead, she treats the whole person, looking for ways to cure the root of problems, rather than the fertile 6 inches of topsoil. To do this, she takes a four-tiered approach that often integrates chiropractic care, acupuncture, naturopathic medicine, or massage therapy. Erica focuses on trigger point therapy, prenatal care, and swedish and deep tissue massage.
Each noninvasive method utilizes the body’s ability to heal itself given the proper stimulus; acupuncture awakens the body’s natural defenses and chiropractic adjustments realign vertebrae. She can even treat pets, using amended chiropractic adjustments to ameliorate health issues.
Licensed acupuncturist and clinical professional counselor Jean Kuty has been practicing acupuncture for more than 15 years. The last few years, she's spent time stateside and overseas acting as a military and family-life consultant for active service members, but she has recently returned to Boise to offer her services full-time. In addition to acupuncture treatments—which use tiny, sterile, one-use needles to treat a variety of ailments—she also offers medical counseling, which helps her patients move toward wellness and healing.
During their more than 32 years of practice, Drs. Keith and Josh McKim have treated more than 20,000 patients. Depending on their needs, they treat some patients with traditional chiropractic adjustments and massages, and others with advanced technological equipment. The DRS Protocol machine, for example, gently stretches the spine to remove pressure from discs and to allow patients to get on certain rides at the fair. Either way, all of Keith and Josh's techniques are noninvasive, low-risk, and require no drugs or surgery.
At Zuma Massage, owner and founder Russell Walgamott forges Eastern and Western massage techniques into completely customizable treatments. The licensed massage therapist, versed in Swedish massage, anatomy and physiology, and Chinese tui na massage, offers soothing sessions in 60-, 90-, and 120-minute increments. Clients can choose between tailor-made custom strokes designed to alleviate their specific maladies or a stress-reducing hot-stone massage. No matter the treatment, Russell confidently backs his services with a 100% guarantee. If a client is not completely satisfied, he'll try again with a complimentary massage or give them a free puppy. Satisfied clients, meanwhile, can enroll in Zuma’s contract- and fee-free membership program, which provides discounts on future services and gift cards.
