Chiropractic physician Dr. Julie Kotiw puts her doctorate from the Palmer College of Chiropractic to work at Sage Chiropractic, Massage and Yoga Center, helping her patients deal with pain. Her extensive knowledge of the musculoskeletal system combined with her compassion and skilled hands help break down tensions and ease the nervous system. Dr. Kotiw performs chiropractic services to treat migraines, slipped discs, and pain associated with auto accidents and carpal tunnel. Her acupuncture services aim to control pain and balance the body by releasing the flow of natural energy. She also works with four licensed massage therapists. With modalities such as myofascial release, deep tissue, and Swedish, they improve range of motion so that clients can hang over a TV to adjust cables like a towel on a clothesline.
Inside a private treatment room, visitors to Pure Massage Therapy unwind as a licensed therapist, who is certified in 12 different massage styles, applies techniques such as myofascial release, aromatherapy, tried-and-true, trigger point, cranial, and Reiki. Other styles include sports, prenatal, deep tissue, Swedish, hot stone, and medical massages. But clients shouldn't feel overwhelmed by all the pain relief options. The knowledgeable therapist helps recommend a modality based on what the client needs, whether it's stress relief, muscle recovery, or a good night's rest after a long, long week of the cat's chasing laser pointers in her sleep.
At Creative Nails Too, courteous nail technicians add a little dazzle to hands and feet. Once all 20 fingers and toes have been trimmed and filed, technicians can emboss them in glossy no-chip polishes or carefully paint on intricate designs such as snowflakes or tiny portraits of your favorite Baldwin brother. Once toes and fingers have been freshened up, eyebrow and lip waxes also can be booked to help ensure clients leave with a fresh face to match.
Each location offers the regenerative properties of various varieties of massage that make a soul vessel feel springtime fresh. Of your 90-minute massage session, 10 minutes are set aside for dressing time and a consultation with your therapist to ensure your massage is customized for you.
When it comes to beauty, Joanna of Joanna's Hair & Lash Extensions not only knows the latest trends, she knows how to achieve them. The stylist and lash technician stays on top of the latest styles, smoothing out coarse and frizz-prone hair with the Brazilian blowout system and adding length to short cuts with natural-looking hair extensions. She also flexes her hair-coloring muscles during ombre color and highlighting sessions, imparting locks with everything from subtle, sun-kissed hues to fun, candy-colored streaks. Showing off her expertise in all things hair, Joanna adheres lash extensions to existing lashes, emphasizing the eyes without applying mascara to them or drawing a third eye between them.
