Seeing firsthand the positive effects that chiropractic medicine has had on his clients keeps Dr. Wayne Hansen passionate about his profession. At Solutions Clinic, he delivers these inspiring results by selecting the most suitable treatment plan from a list of specialties that includes traditional adjustments, ice and heat therapy, and the application of kinesio tape to support weak muscles or conceal them with wrapping paper. He can tailor his services to treat a specific condition, too, be it upper back pain, tennis elbow, or carpal tunnel. Solutions Clinic also employs a massage therapist and a dietician is available at all clinics to draw up healthy meal plans and show clients the proper way to dead lift a 5-pound bag of apples.
Tucked within The Sky Lodge’s resort compound, Amatsu Spa’s aestheticians summon contentment with indulgent services performed in view of majestic mountain vistas. Kick off serene seclusion with the Ultimate manicure ($40) and pedicure ($55), during which the spa's master of mitts soaks, scrubs, and massages paws into purring appendages before applying a polish of choice. Clients prune bodily landscapes with more than 10 waxing options, defoliating underarms ($35+), lips ($10+), or full legs ($70+) before adding on a 25-minute reflexology treatment ($45) or a 15-minute collagen eye treatment ($25). During the 30-minute Earth & Fresh body ritual, scrubbers exfoliate surfaces with gentle cucumber and green-apple botanicals, and a cucumber-and-linden-blossom shea-butter cream deeply hydrates dry patches ($80). Additionally, a series of massages and facials keeps clients calm, clean, and centered enough to tackle daily stressors or beat the last level of Bubble Bobble.
At Sophia's Nails, a cast of cuticle curators bathe and hand-paint nails with a stylish stockpile of brand-name products. During the classic pedicure, feet plunge into warm water before an aesthetician trims and shapes digit tips and whisks away calluses. A skin-smoothing cuticle treatment with exfoliation is followed by a massage and concluding coats of polish, bestowing feet with the confidence to strut about town in saran-wrap sandals.
Massage and Fitness SLC helps clients not only build stronger bodies in group exercise classes, but also unwind after their workouts with custom massages. Licensed massage therapist Elizabeth Anne Galloway targets testy areas such as the triceps and glutes with the gliding kneads of Swedish massage as well as the probing motions of the deep-tissue technique. Scalp massages melt away tension using hot oil and pressure-point stimulation, and reflexology sessions activate specific sites on the feet, hands, and ears to promote improved health in corresponding areas of the body, including the liver, bladder, and dorsal fin.
