Bordered by a dark hardwood floor and amber walls warmed by low light, the lobby of Bella Pella Medical Spa cultivates a serene feeling even before treatments start. Velvet chaise longues, a small waterfall, and glowing bouquets of light-tipped stems also occupy the room, lulling guests into a tranquil state that continues in the treatment rooms. There, services as varied as hot-stone massages and laser aesthetics help visitors feel and look their best.
The Zen Den's mission is to help clients unwind completely, much like the world's largest ball of yarn after its meeting with the world's largest kitten. That mission is accomplished in each of its services, which include energy balancing sessions, therapeutic spa services, personalized yoga instruction, and an on-site counselor. However, it is most evident in its signature, most sought after massage treatment, My Zen Myokinesthetic Massage. This 75-minute sojourn into relaxation includes a relaxing massage that employs Swedish, deep-tissue, and trigger-point techniques to quiet aches and pains, plus reflex-point therapy on the hands, feet, ears, and scalp. For good measure, the massage also includes hot towels, hot stones, and an aroma of the client's choice.
My Massage Therapist owner Sherri Armas brings a wealth of experience, from working with professional athletes to studying chiropractic, to her client-focused business. As a personal trainer, former collegiate bodybuilder, and nutritional counselor trained by PFIT, Sherri knows how to read the human body and helps clients to achieve their overall health goals while ridding stress of muscles with custom massages. Sherri exacts an array of massage techniques, such as Swedish, hot stone, and prenatal, to address client-specific concerns and can also help to ease injuries incurred from automobile accidents or circus cannonball launches gone awry.
LaVida Massage knows that unlike offices, schools, and calendar printers, back pain doesn't take Sundays off. That's why their facilities stay open Sundays, as well as every other day of the week. That's also why they employ a large staff of female and male massage therapists that can accommodate many sessions every day at each of their locations. This commitment to meeting clients' needs extends beyond the hours and therapist availability, though. With the understanding that every back, joint, and body is different, LaVida allows clients to customize their massage based on a level system that ranges from gentle and light touch to focused, deep pressure. And they offer multiple modalities, including deep-tissue, Swedish, and prenatal massages.

Orthossage leaves no doubt that its therapists know what they’re doing: every week, they participate in continuing-education courses to stay up to snuff on their craft. That dedication enables the Orthossage team to deliver a wide array of modalities, including an advanced orthopedic technique that focuses specifically on muscle attachments. No matter the type of massage a client chooses, though, Orthossage enhances every visit with aromatherapy, topical muscle pain reliever, and steamed towels. The facility also provides 3D anatomical photos so clients can see what groups of muscles get worked on without having to dissect a mannequin.
