Doctor of Chiropractic Det James is a firm believer in the body's natural healing power. That is why he founded Geist Chiropractic nearly two decades ago, and why he continues to eschew drugs and surgery in favor of getting to the root of patients' problems with multidisciplinary chiropractic care. Alongside Dr. Urvi Vyas, Dr. James complements his spinal adjustments with massage therapy, exercise counseling, and nutritional counseling.
The earth-toned office fosters a feeling of calm by avoiding bright lights and loud machines. Treatment rooms are stocked with special adjusting tables for infants, children, and pregnant women, allowing the chiropractors to rid bodies of subluxations for more comfortable pregnancies and less crotchety childhoods.
After developing 2,100 barren square feet into a fully custom, comfort-minded space, Dream Weaver Salon & Day Spa opened its doors on August 15, 1999, with a small staff of five pulchritude purveyors. Later expanding to 3,500 square feet and broadening its staff to nine stylists, three nail technicians, three massage therapists, three aestheticians, and three disoriented musketeers, Dream Weaver blossomed into the vast full-service salon and spa flower it is today. A dramatic rounded arch separates the waiting area from the rest of the space, where the certified staff perform a range of beautifying services, including coif coloring, haircuts, mani-pedis, facials, and anxiety-slaying massages.
In her 20 years in the industry, Mary has become a Pureology expert and a certified Juvexin stylist. At Schedule My Hair, those credentials are just a starting point, though. In addition to haircuts, coloring, and Juvexin hair-taming treatments, she offers facials and treatments that help slow the loss of hair and encourage new growth.
Heather Hasty defines the word anature as meaning from the earth, a concept she tries to uphold in each of her massage and bodywork services. The owner and head therapist at Anature Massage & Wellness, which is located inside Sola Salon, incorporates organic creams and lotions into each of her treatments, which focus on natural and alternative methods of pain relief such as stretching, reflexology, and distracting the pained muscles with a muscle-size Rubik's cube. After more than 700 credit hours, Heather earned her massage-therapy certification in 1995, but she didn’t stop there. Instead, she continues to upgrade her repertoire with new massage techniques including trigger point, Asian reflexology, and Pfrimmer Deep Muscle Therapy, which concentrates on restoring circulation to deep muscles with blocked blood or lymphatic flow.
Dannielle Snellenberger—the massage therapist behind IRA Massage and Bodywork—has trained in a wide variety of modalities, and stays ahead of industry trends as a member of the American Massage Therapy Association. She specializes in sports and deep-tissue massage, loosening taut muscles within the center's small, private spa or in clients' homes. Snellenberger also is certified in techniques such as hydrotherapy and Siddha body detoxification, an ancient Indian method that aims to draw out impurities with heated oil.
Snellenberger enhances massage sessions with warm river rocks and essential oils, and offers several soothing spa treatments. She also performs corporate chair massages that can enhance employee productivity and reduce the number of pencils stuck in ceilings.
Jemea Kim Deeter believes in the power of touch to facilitate inner and outer healing. The licensed massage therapist has witnessed firsthand massage's benefits—most notably while pregnant with her two sons—and today she spreads the power of massage with her own practice. At Mea Massage Therapy, she performs Swedish and deep-tissue massages for anybody struggling with muscle tension, pain, or lingering injury. She also specializes in prenatal massage to help expecting mothers deal with the physical demands of pregnancy. Jemea also confers her knowledge to new parents during private Baby's First Massage lessons, which cover safe massage techniques to calm newborns or stoke precociousness in calculus or horticulture.
