Harrah Chiropractic & Center for Natural Medicine treats its patients holistically. That means the center's staff doesn't just help clients shed pounds with treatments such as laser therapy and injections. Under the guidance of licensed chiropractor Dr. Damon Coffman, they also provide lifestyle advice, including nutrition counseling and exercise blueprints. Patients can even sign up for a free website membership, which includes wellness tips from a monthly Healthy Living newsletter. It's all part of the center's "whole-person approach," which advocates treating the underlying causes of a patient's symptoms, not just the symptoms that get jammed up in their big toe.
After years of learning an array of healing techniques from physicians and fellow therapists, aesthetician and massage therapist Chellie Abernathy opened her own practice to address clients? individual needs with soothing massages. Her wide range of interests, from cosmetology to surgical technology, gives Chellie a well-rounded view of the human body?s inner and outer workings, which helps her relate to a wide range of people, from professional athletes to professional couch surfers. Though she specializes in the more intense, deep-tissue style, Chellie also performs other modalities, including Swedish, hot stone, and acupressure.
From her private station in The Guild Salon, aesthetician Tobi Hight refines faces with trained hands and professional products. From issues ranging from the acne of youth to wrinkles caused by an aging tooth fairy switching faces with you while you sleep, the skin expert can devise a solution to leave any complexion clear and radiant.
During personal training sessions at Samantha Rayne Fitness, staff ensure that no more than two people are training on the floor at any one time. This lets trainers focus their attention entirely on a client's form and progress. In addition to personal training, the facility hosts group endeavors such as Pilates, yoga, and kickboxing sessions. After intense sessions, clients can take advantage of the gym's massage therapy to help ease muscle aches.
At Red Rock Massage, certified massage therapists and skilled aestheticians deliver a range of relaxing spa treatments. Swedish massages reduce tightness and improve circulation with a combination of gliding, kneading, and friction strokes, and deep-tissue techniques dig into muscle tissue to excavate stress and fossilized car keys. With Swedish strokes and volcanic basalt rocks heated up to 120 degrees, hot-stone massages soothe the last shreds of stress from a long day of asking coworkers about the location of Carmen Sandiego. Staff members massage necks, heads, and shoulders and rub scalps with scented aromatherapy oils during a moisture-minded Wax and Relax treatment, which also washes away tension from hands and feet with a warm bath of paraffin wax.
Stress can make it difficult to perform even the most mundane tasks, such as walking, sleeping, and hanging from ceiling fan blades. Thanks goodness for licensed massage therapist Justus Bosquez. In the comfort of his cozy studio, he blends light to medium pressure with firmer techniques to ease chronic tension and promote deep relaxation. Justus is also been a charitable supporter of the Wounded Warrior Project, an organization which provides support to injured military vets.
