The massage therapists at Human Kneads Healing Massage use a variety of techniques to restore physical and emotional balance. Owner Brynn Walker—who is working toward becoming a nutritional consultant and holistic health practitioner—has joined forces with fellow Healing Arts Institute graduate Brooke Elizabeth Keller. Together, they perform massage modalities ranging from neuromuscular rehabilitation to restorative, sesame-oil-based Abhyanga sessions rooted in the ancient Ayurvedic tradition. They also specialize in healing therapies such as jin shin, an acupressure technique that facilitates the flow of energy via chakras, meridians, and an intricate network of model-train stoplights.
Walker and Keller enhance massages with soothing steam-therapy treatments and Pink Papaya products infused with botanical extracts including lavender, sweet orange, grapefruit, and bergamot. They also send clients home with a "massage-scription" that details their findings and recommend therapeutic exercises to help bring relief between visits.
No two treatments performed at NoCo Massage are the same. Every time someone lays down on the table, the massage therapist hones in on the specific muscles that are vexing that client. The therapist kicks off the pampering by chatting with guests and drawing up a customized kneading plan that draws on a wide range of modalities. Swedish techniques dole out gentle all-over pressure with long, flowing strokes. At the other end of the pressure spectrum, deep-tissue massage and shiatsu burrow down into muscle structures in localized areas to root out knots and pieces of swallowed chewing gum. To amp up the endorphins, NoCo kicks in a helping of hot basalt stones or essential oils at no extra charge.
At Total Vein Care, board-certified phlebologist Dr. Steven Kaufman uses his more than 20 years of medical experience to help relieve patients of spider-veined skin and other venous maladies. Using sclerotherapy—a safe injection of detergent solution—Dr. Kaufman seals veins shut, cutting off blood supply and causing webbed veins to slowly disappear or relocate to the arms of human-arachnid superheroes. Each session covers one leg and lasts approximately 20 minutes, or roughly the same amount of time it takes to learn Hot Cross Buns on the keytar. Most patients require one to four treatments per leg to reach desired results. Procedure only performed on Thursday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Irwin Family Chiropractic's skilled doctor of chiropractic, Nathan Irwin, heals body-support columns with gentle adjustments and other holistic treatments.

He then discusses treatment options during in-depth consultations and treats such ailments as subluxations through precise pressure applied to misaligned vertebrae or joints. To tackle the root cause of suboptimal wellness he eases aches with massage and spinal-decompression treatments, and helps enhance overall well-being by instructing patients on proper nutrition and exercise, including the most ergonomically effective way to do The Worm.
