At first glance, professional athletes, retirees, blue-collar workers, and well-traveled crash-test dummies may appear very different from one another. However, all four may share chronic or temporary pain that can be coaxed out by the strong hands of a skilled massage therapist. In contrast to repetitive relaxation-focused massages that you might experience at a resort or a spa, the therapeutic modality practiced at Natural Intuition Therapeutic Massage uses advanced techniques to relieve pain, increase range of motion, and help speed up recovery from an injury. To meet these goals, the massage therapist works closely with clients to determine what needs fixing and then hones in on troubled areas. That?s not to say treatments are strictly utilitarian: therapeutic massage can have relaxing effects too, helping decrease overall stress and tension and producing long-lasting results that can leave clients pain-free even after their visit.

West House is guided by the keen eye of photographer and digital-image editor Krystal Blase. No matter who's in front of her lens, she always aims to keep the atmosphere playful and the results within her vintage, fashion-forward style. Krystal has snapped subjects ranging from serious, style-savvy models to swooning, lighthearted couples to jumping extraterrestrial tourists, and will happily accommodate an on-location shoot of up to six photogenic persons. When considering location, Krystal typically encourages subjects to select a backdrop that best matches their personal narrative, so you should probably avoid shooting between competing outdoor poetry slams. After your shoot, Krystal will draw on her postproduction expertise to compile your high-resolution images on CD. Disc in hand, you'll be free to spread your shots liberally across the Internet, across the fridges of familial acquaintances, or across the desk of one highly impressed nose-modeling agency.
