Licensed massage therapists Andreas Correa, Missy Werner, and Kerri Holler use their knowledge of the human body to sleuth out the root cause of aches and pains, not just alleviate them. The therapists rely on a variety of different modalities to tailor their massage sessions to each client. Whether Kerri is employing the intense kneading of deep-tissue massage, Missy is targeting difficult muscle knots with hot stones, or Andreas is adding in the healing fragrances of aromatherapy, all of their services are priced at a flat rate. Clients can select the exact service they want and the duration they want them for, saving them the hassle of adding up additional costs or inquiring about the price for hearty pats on the back.
At Yora Massage, the massage therapists work to relieve joint and muscle issues with two steps: they massage the soft tissue and manipulate the joint itself. Based on Dr. James Cyriax's practice of transverse friction massage, the staff's techniques are designed to break down fiber adhesions and restore the muscle's proper shape, so clients don't have to seek out muscle-shaped Jell-O molds. The therapists work on the surface layer of muscles as well as into their deeper strata while oscillating the joints. In doing so, they can recover a muscle's functionality, rather than just relieving its pain.
Reaching a profound state of relaxation might seem like a lofty goal, but at Body Sage Massage Therapies, it's what the staff composed of certified and licensed massage therapists hope to provide with each customized massage treatment. A variety of massage modalities can be applied, including orthopedic bodywork and massages for cancer patients or those with chronic ailments. Regardless of the style, the massage therapist takes special care to meet each client's specific needs.

Considering they're charged with maintaining an extensive array of equipment across 15 locations, it's a good thing each state-certified member of the SunsUp Tanning Centers team commits to at least 10 hours of update training each week. The constant training prepares the specialists for working with the centers' 10 types of standup and lay-down UV beds as well as with sunless Mystic Tan and VersaSpa booths. In addition to tanning, SunsUp offers the Fit body wrap, an infrared heat therapy designed to detoxify and slim the body. Patrons can adjust the wrap's four independent heat zones in 1-degree increments up to 130 degrees or until their body parts start to whistle.
