Dance Motion Xplosion carries on the legacy of MBS Training Center for the Performing Arts, which provided 30 years of dance instruction to Detroit-area students. Two instructors affiliated with MBS, Sabrina Breedlove and Shira Duncan, now inspire a new wave of dancers by teaching the foundations of technique, discipline, and music appreciation. They lead all ages and skill levels through hip-hop, ballet, and Zumba classes and keep advanced students on their toes with competitive performing groups.
Bio Balance Therapy's staff works to shape silhouettes and smooth skin with massages, organic scrubs, and mineral-infused mud and seaweed wraps. During the cellulite massage, deft digits work to dislodge fatty deposits, clearing the way for overstayed toxins to escape the body inside “ahh” speech bubbles. An organic concoction of brown sugar, coconut milk, and orange rind, the body scrub gently exfoliates newly smoothed epidermises, and the parafango body wrap works to tighten skin with mineral-infused mud and firm pressure. During a libido-boost wrap, spa staff swathes bodies in organic seaweed mud, essential oils, and aphrodisiac herbs grown by French maids.
Certified massage therapist Crystal Jennings helms Mellow Moods Therapeutic Massage, thoroughly yet tenderly traipsing her trained hands over musculature suffering from chronic pains and severe aches. During the one-hour fusion massage, Jennings pays special attention to the neck and shoulders, blending Swedish and deep-tissue modalities with passive stretching techniques to temper muscular tension, treat adhesive tissues, and diffuse active trigger-point pain and microscopic thermal detonators. As a heated massage table and warm-towel treatment mollify soul sacks, a calming soundscape aims to uproot anxiety from the mind—the one stressed-addled place Jennings isn't able to massage due to the skull's thickness and a lack of neurological training.
HealthQuest's nonsurgical treatments have raised many eyebrows in the sports world, especially around the locker rooms at Ford Field. The center often finds itself the temporary home to some of Detroit's gridiron greats, who take advantage of the staff's non-invasive chiropractic treatments—which combine the power of pulsed laser light and traditional chiropractic care to alleviate knots and aches—to stay in Sunday shape. Non-football clients also find relief, consulting with HealthQuest's doctors on treatments to increase blood flow, decrease inflammation, and promote soft tissue healing.
