Sabrena Wicker had a light-bulb moment as she received her first massage: her career calling was to become a massage therapist. Wicker enrolled in massage school, earned a degree, and opened Tinker Massage and Day Spa Studio. Within the spa's softly lit treatment rooms, massage therapists practice several modalities and perform spa treatments for singles or doubles. To enhance bodywork sessions, the therapists incorporate elements of nature—heated stones infuse heat into muscles, essential oils perfume the air, and a charm of hummingbirds creates a relaxing breeze.
Carol S. Hickman started practicing massage therapy in 1993, but it wasn’t until 1995 that she really saw the full effect her skills could have on others. After the Oklahoma City bombing, she used her knack for healing to bring the victims physical and mental peace. The satisfaction of helping others—and to see their faces fade from tortured to pain-free—is what has kept Hickman in this career path for nearly 20 years.
Her treatment repertoire includes hot-stone and therapeutic massages meant to soothe muscles and stiff necks, and zen body therapy, which uses high-intensity energy treatments similar to rolfing to straighten the spine, similar to those used to roll out an old, dry piece of play-doh. Hickman also extends her services to animals with arthritis and to infants, focusing on instilling good posture when children’s bones are the most pliable.
