Certified therapist Lawrence Urban buttresses the body's self-healing abilities with wellness boosting therapeutic massages. Before starting sessions, Larry works with patience to develop treatment plans that cater to client's needs. In addition to traditional Swedish techniques that foster relaxation, he brings balance to the body's energy pathways through cranial-sacral release. During reflexology sessions, he skillfully targets ailments all over the body by gently kneading their corresponding points on the hands and feet. Unperturbed by a challenging case, Larry also aides bodies in their natural healing processes to help muscles oppressed by chronic pain, which is often caused by fibromyalgia, sleeping at the bottom of a human pyramid, or other conditions.

Stylists update hairstyles for men, women, and children with cuts, permanent color, highlights, and perms. Skincare specialists rejuvenate clients with facials and waxing services, and they ease weary muscles with the smooth, heated rocks used in a hot-stone massage, a service that was recently added to the menu to replace the less-soothing cold, jagged-stick massage.
There was a silver lining to be found in an auto accident. After Brian Hanks underwent chiropractic care and massage therapy in the wake of his car crash, the efficacy of those treatments inspired his eventual career choice—doctor of chiropractic. Now, Dr. Hanks practices at Muscle Science Chiropractic, helping others by specializing in functional neurology therapy, diagnosing and treating brain lesions to boost the health of the nervous system. He also uses craniosacral therapy, acupressure, and lymphatic drainage to get to the source of clients’ maladies. Another pillar of Dr. Hanks’s treatment regimen is massage therapy, which he renders in modalities such as deep tissue, myofascial, and trigger point.
