Solace Therapeutic Massage's experienced massage therapists soothe patrons with an arsenal of relaxing and clinical modalities. Like chemists at a soda fountain, clients can mix and match their own modalities or allow the therapist to tailor the treatment as they see fit with techniques such as polarity therapy or positional release. Swedish techniques apply gentle pressure and massage muscles in the same direction as blood returning to the heart from its circulatory sojourn, attempting to coax toxins out of their homes while better oxygenating the body. Clinical techniques delve into the musculature in search of the causes behind such persistent discomforts as back pain, tennis elbow, and chess wrist. Reflexology treatments target the feet with a specialized therapy that spends approximately 30 minutes attempting to rebalance the corporeal systems before finishing the hour with a full-body massage. The staff also prevents the need to rub the back on a telephone pole by performing prenatal and sports massages.

At Three Mountains Wellness, LLC, Liz Billings uses a holistic approach to treat patients. After studying advanced Oriental medicine in Korea, Liz obtained a certification from the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, which she uses to diagnose and treat patients afflicted with a variety of problems. She combines Oriental medicine as well as acupuncture with other approaches such as nutrition, exercise, and proper sleep habits to help clients overcome difficulty with chronic pain, memory loss, stress, anxiety, and depression.
Resident massage therapist Alicia Bruce frees her clients from long-held tension during private sessions. Her carefully trained fingers ease aches during relaxing Swedish massages and precisely place heated basalt stones during hot-stone massages to warm deep-seated muscles that are sore from their owners posing as Atlas. Reflexology sessions focus on trigger points in the hands and feet, working to release congestion throughout the body and stimulate circulation. Alicia also packages massage sessions with spa services such as mani-pedis or facials to create an afternoon of pampering.
