Thanks to 25 years working in the corporate world, Connie Murphy, Touch With Intent's licensed massage therapist, has firsthand knowledge of work-related stress and the health issues it can bring. Murphy brings this knowledge to her massage sessions, which she tailors to each client’s individual troubles. This might mean calming the nervous system with soothing Swedish strokes, softening tight muscles with hot stones, or delving into sore spots with the more insistent pressure of deep-tissue or trigger-point therapy. Aromatherapy scents add a more comforting sensory element than samples from a tableside gravy boat, and the organic products she uses help her hands glide over her clients’ muscles in a natural fashion.
Folicure's developers approach hair restoration with an artist's precision instead of treating customers with the same unchanging template and sending the specs off to a factory. With each client, they map the original hairline, density, and characteristics such as cowlicks. Then they re-create them through a mold and base, fitting the customized hair system to the scalp with a medical adhesive. Working on the hairline by hand and blending new hair in with the sides and back, they construct a natural-looking head of hair that can be styled, slicked back, spiked, parted, washed, and combed. The approach creates hair that moves, feels, and talks like the real thing. The system is designed for both men and women, and in many instances they can send clients home with their new hair the same day as the consultation.
At Finesse Bodywork, Chris Bell is a licensed massage therapist. His clients appreciate his focus on comforting sore and tired muscles during personal training sessions, and clients can also include full-body stretching in any of their sessions. Those just interested in relaxation or the excitement of lying in a new bed can benefit from Chris's hot stone, prenatal, and Thai table massages.
Additionally, Chris creates custom fitness programs that guide clients through five important steps on their path to health and wellness. First, he inquires about each client's medical background and their fitness and nutrition practices to glean an understanding of their current health. Then, the client works with Chris to set individual goals, which he uses to design personalized workouts and nutritional guidelines. He then follows through on helping clients adhere to their wellness plans, guiding them during workout sessions and providing encouragement to help them stick to food plans.
