Holistic-health practitioner Gary has experimented with an array of holistic and metaphysical treatments to treat his chronic insomnia, anxiety, and gout. Today, at the Lightpath Discovery Center, he practices a range of these services, such as cupping, Thai reflexology, and meditation. Gary has also developed several wellness treatments of his own, including body reflexology, a form of bodywork derived from Thai yoga, Thai massage, and acupressure, and vibrational tuning, a healing technique aided by tuning forks and chimes.
Nothing says "Sunday" like a relaxing day at the spa. The expert staff members at Like Sunday Salon and Spa aim to keep the ethos of their namesake through indulgent and relaxing services within the robin's-egg-blue salon. They cut and style hair into short, spiky pixie cuts or long box braids. The staff can also relax shoulders with a massage or cleanse faces with a facial.
Roy Johnson was working on his yoga certification when he discovered Thai massage—sometimes called "lazy man's yoga" for the way practitioners stretch and manipulate their clients' limbs. Intrigued, he sought out classes in the style, then went to Thailand to meet other practitioners. Today, Thai massage is just one modality he employs at Lion and Dragon Yoga Bodyworks, which he and his wife, Brenda, strive to make a one-stop shop for bodywork services. In a tranquil, unrushed atmosphere, the pair targets tension through mindful massages, employing various tools such as Hot Stone, Essential Oils and Heated Thai Herbal Bundles. Reflexology treatments target pressure points on the feet to benefit the whole body.
