To secure its position as the best massage clinic of 2010, Massage Specialist presented Boulder Weekly with a suite of services that went beyond the basics. The clinic's therapists practice more than 10 massage styles including classic modalities (e.g., Swedish, deep tissue, and sports) as well as uncommon therapies (e.g., manual lymphatic drainage, infant massage, and shiatsu). Most treatments incorporate the clinic's signature water-dispersible oils and lotions that do not stain clothing but may dissolve witches. They prep for appointments by draping treatment beds with fresh, clean linens, and educating guests on therapies that suit their personal ailments. Aside from massage therapy, the clinic offers spinal adjustments, chiropractic care, acupuncture, and herbal consultations.

Megan McCanna brings her thousands of hours of clinical experience to bear in the offices of Inner Path Acupuncture, soothing patients with traditional Chinese medicine. During first visits to the office, Megan collects an initial intake of each patient’s individual needs, identifying mental and bodily disharmonies such as digestive problems, psycho-emotional issues, and pain. A one-hour treatment session follows, during which 1–16 sterilized, hair-thin needles are inserted into key points on the body, restoring energy pathways headed to the body’s vital nervous, circulatory, and stereo systems. Megan specializes in women’s health and fertility and is an experienced herbalist, customizing blends according to each patient’s needs. Patients can upgrade their sessions to 90 minutes for an additional $25 per treatment.

As owner and primary acupuncturist at Boulder Sports Acupuncture, he?s helped a number of active patients recover from injury through the ancient Chinese treatment, which involves the insertion of fine needles along specific points on the body. These tiny tools stimulate the flow of the body?s natural energy, which, in turn, helps heal complaints ranging from tendonitis and carpal tunnel to problems associated with infertility and menstruation. Steven Rizzolo is accompanied by Erika Anderson, who specializes in overall wellness, pain management, and digestive disorders.
