Since she’s not the sore one, licensed massage therapist Victoria Laursen doesn’t always make her clients come to her. From 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. on most days, she packs up her massage oils and travels to homes and offices to administer relaxing chair massages designed to ease tension from all-day sitting or general stress. Holding more than 500 hours of training, she also assuages aches with six other massage modalities, including trigger-point therapy, sports massage, and reflexology.

When Ling treats patients, it’s really two masters at work. This is because she traces her knowledge of traditional curative practices back to not one mentor, but two: a renowned doctor of herbal formulas and a master of acupuncture, who specializes in skin diseases, allergies, infertility, and pain management. Inside her clinic, where jars of herbs and natural medicines line wooden cabinets and hardwood floors glow with natural sunlight, Ling applies this knowledge when assessing patients’ health, prescribing herbs, and treating ailments with signature acupuncture sessions.
To realign the spine and put your bones back in the order prescribed by campfire sing alongs, opt for Swanson's skeleton-shuffling, posture-straightening chiropractic treatment. At the beginning of your session, your chiropractor will perform a full chiropractic exam, checking your muscular scaffolding for any out-of-place pieces and giving your nerve endings a look-see to make sure none of them are being pinched by a crab. Should your interior décor require a closer look, x-rays will be taken as well. When your points of pressure are fully identified, your chiropractor will use hands, or gorilla gloves if they're feeling mischievous, to apply gentle, precise pressure that puts bones back in their rightful places—relieving pressure on any nerves affected by the misalignment and targeting specific conditions, including sciatica, lower back pain, tennis elbow, Wii tennis thumb, and fat Elvis pelvis.
