A Navy veteran, graduate of Arizona State University?s kinesiology program, ACE-certified personal trainer, and master massage therapist, Jerry Coy knows a thing or two about the body. He brings all of that knowledge to Therapeutic Massage & Fitness, where he tends to clients in as many ways as his expertise permits. His massages run the gamut from custom treatments?which include aromatherapeutic blends of Swedish, deep-tissue, and reflexology techniques?to LaStone Therapy, a geothermal treatment that alternates between applications of hot and cold stones.
But just as Jerry?s certifications go well beyond the field of massage, so do the services he provides. During his salt-glow exfoliating scrubs, he uses blends of mineral-rich salt, pure jojoba oil, and medical-grade essential oils that he mixes himself on the day of each session. He also offers far-infrared body wraps to encourage cellulite reduction, as well as nutrition counseling to help clients squeeze back into the bucket seat of their first car.
Mind, Body & Flow was voted one of the best new businesses in the East Valley Tribune's Best of the East Valley 2011 awards for harnessing the body?s innate ability to bring itself into balance. As you step into their 1,700-square-foot facility, the deep-red walls of the reception area and clean, spa-like treatment rooms invite rejuvenating relaxation.
The crew also combats stress and physical maladies with a repertoire of holistically minded treatments, including infrared-sauna sessions, nutritional programs, and body wraps, whose infrared rays can help clients relax, reduce fat, and alleviate pain and joint stiffness. Deft massage therapists deploy various forms of massage to calm the autonomic nervous system, enabling clients to play Operation for hours without flinching. Recently, Mind, Body, & Flow has expanded its service scope to include chiropractic care and functional medicine, which work in tandem to align the body, detoxify it, and promote healing. By integrating such treatments, clients achieve inner balance while combating underlying obstacles blocking their path to total wellness.
The client truly is the boss at It’s All About You. After her guests arrive at the studio, massage therapist Michele allows them to dictate which modality they prefer, which areas to focus on, and which areas to avoid. Once this has been determined and sealed with an aromatherapy-oiled handshake, Michele begins her work. A member of the Associated Bodywork and Massage Professionals group, she maintains a client-centric practice in more ways than one by basing her pricing on the massage’s duration as opposed to its type. During this time, clients are encouraged to keep an open dialogue so Michele can fully customize the treatment and deliver benefits such as decreased anxiety and enhanced sleep quality.
For Cimarron Anderson, helping to de-stress professional athletes, expectant moms, and college students is all part of a days' work. The massage therapist harnesses her experience working in high-end spas, athletic departments, and corporate wellness programs to slay tension and silence back-talking muscles through massage modalities including Swedish, deep tissue, aromatherapy, and shiatsu. And her knowledge stretches beyond massage, as well. She uses her mentorship with a naturopathic doctor to incorporate herbs and nutritional supplements into her clients' wellness routines. Yet, no matter the treatment, Cimarron focuses on providing clients with tangible results that last, unlike a water-soluble goblet.
For nearly a decade, Heather has been exploring how the muscles respond to various massage modalities including deep tissue, Thai, and trigger point.

Her massages feature a blend of all of these and other techniques to ensure that she can provide complete relief from neck, back, and prehensile tail pain.
