The team of holistic healers at G & L Acupuncture and Wellness Center manipulates the body’s healing energies from the inside out with combinations of acupuncture, massage, and Chinese herbs. Disharmonious meridians wreaking havoc in the form of chronic pain, digestive issues, or headaches come into alignment with acupuncture or Tuina massage. Chinese herbs combine the benefits of plant-based medications with the joy of swallowing pills to maintain the therapeutic momentum of acupuncture and Tuina massage.
Although they adhere to the same philosophy of holistic healing, each member of the team brings their own unique skill set and experiences to the practice. Two acupuncturists with backgrounds working in a 500-bed Chinese hospital join together with an acupuncturist who trained in physical therapy and one who trained in applied physics.
When it comes to keeping muscles healthy, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Just ask Leverett Miller. A licensed massage therapist, he uses his soft tissue bodywork sessions to keep muscles pliant and healthy. Whether his clients are training for a marathon or simply looking to stay in shape, Leverett loosens pent-up tightness and increases circulation. In the event of preexisting injuries, his work also brings relief from the soreness and range of motion issues associated with pulls and strains. Leverett's massages don't just benefit the body; his relaxing kneads also encourage the release of mood-boosting chemicals including DHA, dopamine, and endorphins.
A self-service spa, Healthy Spaces fosters proactive wellness through stress relief, detoxification, and weight loss. During a 90-minute session, spa-goers may partake in a buffet of therapeutic equipment scattered throughout the quiet, peaceful space. As patrons wander freely from heated shiatsu massage beds to Ashiyu foot spa, they interact little with staff members, save exchanging the occasional secret spa wink. The bright glow of the light-therapy machine stabilizes clients' sleep while they repose on the E-Motion therapy massage chair, which mutely knead muscles in the shoulders, back, and dorsal finlets. After steamy sessions in the calorie-burning infrared sauna, clients may rehydrate with alkaline-ionized water or refresh with a cup of bSkinny fat-burning coffee.
Sport Clips specializes in creating a just-for-the-dudes atmosphere that’s tailor made to tickle the Y chromosome. "Men's women" stylists futz with the follicles of men and boys in a sport-themed environment decorated in a bold black, white, and red color scheme—evoking racing flags, professional sports teams, and jokes about newspapers. Your MVP haircut begins with a consultation about the look you want, followed by the precision haircut itself. Your guy-savvy stylist will then dole out a delightful scalp massage with Tea Tree shampoo. After a dollop of leave-in conditioner, you'll get to savor the warmth of a barbershop-style steamed towel and feel sports-related frustration melt away during an upper neck and shoulder massage. In between haircuts, you can come in anytime and get the back of your neck cleaned up for free, since unsightly neck stubble is known to attract the unwanted attention of poltergeists, sandworms, and debt collectors.
