The massage therapists of Boulder Massage & NeuroMuscular Therapy possess different skills and backgrounds, but work toward a single goal: to relieve stress and chronic pain. Jason Summers specializes in treatment-oriented massage, while Zeona McIntyre excels in combining orthopedic work and Swedish massage. Lauren McWilliams also has a knack for rooting out pain, exercising her talents with myoskeletal therapy to gently realign the spine.
The practitioners respect each client's investment by devoting the entire session to massage, with time only deducted for undressing or sharing knock-knock jokes. Additionally, they support the community by volunteering at nonprofit organizations and hosting interns from local schools.

Members at Curves, a fitness center designed exclusively for women, rotate around a circuit of hydraulic resistance machines designed to work with female bodies and promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help to manage participants’ machine maneuvering and muscle making. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing momentum, the hydraulic machines use participants' own body weight, fitness level, and aerodynamic water bottles to create resistance that matches abilities, decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, each machine uses push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can. Between each weight station lies a recovery board where ladies cool down while walking, jogging, or running in place to keep up momentum. With each workout warrior at a different station, the only competition that exists is with one's own burgeoning muscles.
Licensed acupuncturist Suzanne L. Stricker uses the art of traditional Chinese medicine to help individuals overcome a wide range of ailments, including allergies, back pain, and headaches. A former plant conservationist and assistant nurse, Suzanne shifted her focus to acupuncture in 2005 for a more holistic approach to wellness and to improve her ability to find a needle in a haystack. Although she treats an array of conditions with acupuncture and Chinese herbs, she specifically focuses on women's health issues and fertility problems.
