Seeing the results for herself compelled her to pursue a career in massage therapy, and today she helps clients get balanced with massage sessions instead of suggesting they sleep on tightropes. Each massage is tailored to the client's individual needs and Jaime draws from experience in a variety of modalities including myofascial release and trigger point therapy.

Although RockSalt Spa offers various types of massage including Thai and LeStone, its signature and unique treatment is salt therapy. Also known as halotherapy, salt therapy creates an anti-inflammatory environment that is beneficial to those suffering from allergies and other respiratory problems. During 45-minute sessions in a salt-therapy room, clients simply breathe in the micronized salt air which helps clear out bacteria, excess mucus, and any Legos they may have inhaled as a child. The therapy has been credited for relieving various ailments of the lungs; it may even help treat bronchitis, sinus infections, and ear infections.
Ansley Watson first discovered the rehabilitative power of Pilates in 1998 after a car accident laid her low. The simple exercises helped her rebuild flexibility and shore up weakened muscles. In fact, Her introduction to Pilates was so life changing that she decided to become a certified Pilates instructor.

At Joie de Vivre Pilates, Ansley and her fellow instructors lead students through a variety of private and group Pilates classes. Sessions designed for pregnant women help bolster back muscles, and cardio jumpboard sessions targeted toward skiers amp up stamina. Of course, the studio also hosts tried-and-true reformer classes where students and undercover bosses of all experience levels can work at their own pace.
