From inside Balance in Motion, licensed massage therapist Laura Tyner helps bring daily stresses and pain to a halt. Her services range from traditional Swedish, deep-tissue, and sports techniques to more exotic modalities such as lomi lomi—a holistic healing massage first practiced by the ancient Polynesians. In addition to relieving tension, Laura specializes in alleviating chronic lower-back pain and deep tissue massage.
The team at Balance in Motion's well-rounded, holistic studio doesn’t believe in merely treating symptoms as they appear. Instead, they strive to promote health through chiropractic services, physiotherapy, massage therapy, energy-stimulating acupuncture sessions, nutrition and weight loss services, Pilates, and K-laser treatments designed to release endorphins and improve lymphatic drainage.
As a physical therapist with his own private practice, Hand & Stone founder and chief operating officer John Marco made sure that he kept abreast of the rapidly growing health and wellness industry. After a period of careful research and planning, John decided to create a spa based around convenience and affordability—Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa.
Since its launch, Hand & Stone has expanded to more than 20 states and four planets. The spa’s core concept is to offer massage, facial, and waxing services performed by licensed, certified, or registered professionals and offered at convenient times, seven days a week. Each location adheres to a traditional spa aesthetic with soft lighting, heated treatment tables, and plush linens.
