Inside her massage studio, Sherrie Huckleberry thwarts tension and chronic pain through custom massage therapy. She practices various massage techniques and can enhance sessions with boosters including essential oils, heated stones, and relaxing whale calls.
As a licensed therapist for seven years, Lisa Schultz believes everyone should have a better life and sees massage as one method of achieving it. Fueled by this notion that massage is, at its core, an altruistic endeavor, she spent the first two of those seven years in a chiropractor's office. While working alongside a professional spine-straightener, she helped mend muscles that were burdened with chronic pains or injured by auto accidents. Bolstered by this experience, she now runs her own private practice. With experience treating patients with whiplash under her belt, she rescues ailing sinews with her specialty deep-tissue and relaxation massage techniques, accompanied by additive-free natural oils and no synthetic fragrances.
Massage Heights Wildflower Village’s commitment to reducing its carbon footprint is evident in all aspects of the business. Rechargeable, battery-operated faux candles set a relaxing air during sessions, the walls sport coats of VOC-free paint, and the staff even uses biodegradable lotions and oils during their massages and facial treatments. The staff keeps the facilities pristine with non-toxic cleaning supplies and separate bins for recycling paper, plastic, and exhaled air. This commitment to green practices grants clients even greater peace of mind as they loosen up during massage services customized according to their unique physical needs or facials attuned to address a wide range of skin care concerns.
After honing her craft at McKinnon Body Therapy Center in California's Bay Area, Kelsey Sora Khatter returned to her native Oregon to practice massage therapy and energy healing. She specializes in prenatal and postpartum massage, helping women experience relief from the unique aches of each trimester and escape stress after delivery. She also applies her skills to infant massage, which can ease colic and improve babies' sleep habits, as well as help them forget about the storks that abandoned them at the hospital. Kelsey can make outcalls to clients' homes, offices, and even bachelorette parties.
The muscle menders at Massage Therapy Eugene are capable of lowering high blood pressure, relieving stress, and aiding recovery from an injury—all with a simple touch. Their therapeutic massages help the body achieve well-being by jump-starting its own healing processes. By kneading muscles and ligaments, they increase blood circulation, which in turn decreases inflammation, improves range of motion, and even relieves pain.
Such healing prowess is emblematic of the larger, multi-pronged approach to health that Massage Therapy Eugene is part of. A facet of Evans Chiropractic Group, the clinic benefits from the leadership and holistic outlook of Dr. Jerry Evans himself. The massage therapists often work with him and other chiropractors to customize their sessions, focusing pressure on a specific area of concern or helping clients see that a clothes dryer is a bad place to sleep. And Dr. Evans rounds out his health haven by giving clients access to spa-like amenities: a full-service private gym, LED facial rejuvenation, and even spray tanning.
Dr. Jerry Evans leads a caring crew at Evans Chiropractic Group, drawing from more than 20 years of experience dekinking vertebrae to finesse skeletal structures ailing from work injuries, sports-induced aches, and everyday boo-boos. Spreading the treatments over two visits, the initial session begins with a consultation to discuss problems and pains before the chiropractic exam realigns spines and unspools tightly wound physiques like a yo-yo running away from its shadow. The second appointment provides time to converse about the doctor's findings as well as develop a pain-management game plan, if necessary. A 60-minute Swedish or deep-tissue massage concludes the healing meeting as a trained muscle kneader loosens limbs and fluffs bone cushions for a pillowy soft feel.
