The experts at Massage Lakes are well-versed in a variety of massage modalities, each of which bestows its unique benefits on the body. Their Swedish massages employ light-to-medium pressure to improve circulation and reduce stress, while deep-tissue massages target chronic aches and knots of tension buried in the Mariana Trench of the muscles. Sports-focused treatments help athletes avoid injury to overworked areas of the anatomy and prenatal massages coddle the expectant. And because the therapists agree that––no matter the modality––massage should be an accessible and integral ingredient to their clients' overall well-being, they offer wellness memberships that provide priority bookings and discounts for friends and family.
Current and former military and law enforcement officers comprise the staff of instructors at Blue Line Defense, who aim to increase firearm awareness and the training level of the general public with each class they teach.

The site also provides firearm-related resources for the community, such as familiarization with use-of-force laws, firearm-sales intricacies, and gun-naming dos and don’ts. Blue Line also regularly participates in fundraisers and charities to help give back to the community.
The licensed massage therapists at Massage Advantage dote on visitors with a slew of custom massage techniques, including Swedish, prenatal, and deep tissue. Armed with warm blankets and a credo to respect patients' privacy, therapists begin each 30- or 60-minute session with a discussion on clients' specific aches and ailments. Therapists can also haul their equipment to office buildings for workplace chair massages that help reinvigorate fatigued employees or stressed-out water coolers during 5–15 minute stints. Each succession of kneads is designed to alleviate stress, muscles soreness, and various medical conditions, such as high blood pressure.
