Q&A with Mike Hachey, Owner And Lead Therapist

What are some of your most popular services? Why do you think clients love them so much?

The 60-minute neuromuscular therapy treatment is our most popular service by far. It allows us enough time to assess and treat the clients' main areas of concern, as well as the areas that have been affected by them. Since our treatment is therapeutic in nature, nearly all our clients come to us with some form of muscular pain and/or soreness, and all leave feeling better than when they walked in.

Our primary goal is to alleviate the pain that our clients are in, and then to correct the problem that caused the pain, and finally to teach our clients how to maintain the problem area, as well as their overall muscular health through stretching and semi-regular massage treatments. This can take multiple treatments, as most soft-tissue problems are chronic, but each session leads us closer to solving the issues.

People go to spas to forget about the outside world. How does your decor help create an atmosphere where visitors can unwind?

We have very calming earth tones as the color scheme in our clinic. However, since we are not a day spa, rather a muscle-therapy clinic, our decor is more akin to a high-end doctor's office as opposed to a high-end day spa.

Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?

The most important thing that we need to communicate is that this is a therapeutic massage, designed with the intent to help correct chronic and acute muscle pain and soreness. [It is] not a Swedish oil massage. ... It is our experience, based on the over 3,000 clients we have seen, that this is usually the type of massage therapy people are seeking when they are in pain. If people are just looking for a day of "getting away" or being pampered, we are not the place for that. However, if they are in any kind of muscular pain or discomfort, we are exactly what they need.

Brandi Chase, the owner of The Athlete Stop, specializes in repairing people. She assembled a deep bench of medical and physical specialists, from doctors and chiropractors to dieticians and massage therapists. They all combine services to help athletes overcome injuries and get back to the sports they love. The team performs all their services in a heavily sports-themed clinic, complete with memorabilia-bedecked walls and an ever-blinking slideshow of patient accomplishments. Of course, the clinic is not without the staff's own personal touches; Brandi and company love the orange, and painted several whole rooms in the color, presumably to help them imagine what it's like to live inside a tiger.
