A family-focused clinic, Alpine Wellness Chiropractic & Massage Therapy has solutions and treatments for clients of every age—including newborns. Doctors of Chiropractic Denesa Pozner and Janea Rather helm the office, each skilled in a variety of treatments, including chiropractic adjustments, corrective exercises, and physiotherapy procedures such as ultrasounds. Dr. Rather's love of running and triathlons has focused her work on athletic injuries that she treats with myofascial and soft-tissue work, while Dr. Pozner tackles a variety of pediatric conditions, combating ailments that range from bedwetting and ear infections to scoliosis and torticollis. She encourages expectant mothers to stop in for prenatal chiropractic care that may help prevent complications.
A welcome beverage of lemon water, coffee, or tea serves as a prelude to pampering at Reflections Salon & Spa. Within private treatment rooms, aestheticians and massage therapists perform facials, waxing services, and bodywork. Out on the salon floor, meanwhile, stylists bustle about wielding scissors, foils, and, conditioner in bottles rather than scissor-vulnerable water balloons. The spa's treatment packages combine several services for a morning or afternoon of relaxing luxury, and the boutique stocks jewelry items from Michael Michaud and other designers.
Licensed massage therapist Neyssa Encarnacion calls upon more than 15 years of experience to knead away bodily stress with massages coupled with salt scrubs. During the Swedish massage and salt scrub, beneficiaries choose between two fine-grain salts before the therapist administers an oil-infused rubdown, which buffs away dry skin and unveils the luminous epidermis beneath. Dexterous hands then go toe to toe with tension, applying long, flowing strokes that smooth out muscular knots sustained from napping in cement mixers. A scalp massage boosts cranial circulation as fingers press peppermint essential oils along temples and caps, prompting minds to relax and split ends to sprout candy-cane seedlings. Clients may emerge from their treatment feeling such benefits as reduced soreness, larger energy reserves, and alleviated stress.
The massage therapists at A Healing Touch provide full-body massages, customizing each one so that they can focus on their clients’ specific areas of stress and pain. Whether they’re doling out Swedish, deep-tissue, or hot-stone massages, they pay attention to problem areas and apply careful pressure that soothes tense muscles and creates relaxing experiences.
Though she began practicing massage therapy full-time in 1990, registered massage therapist Carrie Steffens has always been interested in helping others. She was raised by parents who emphasized the importance of holistic health and an eco-friendly lifestyle, growing their own produce in an organic garden and incorporating meditation and energy work into their everyday lives.
At Alchemy Massage & MPS Therapy, Steffens continues their tradition of physical and mental healing with a variety of specialized treatments. She performs deep-tissue, prenatal, and neuromuscular massage therapy, but she is also experienced in structural integration bodywork and is a master teacher of reiki-energy techniques. Dexterous at the art of pain management, Steffens can alleviate discomfort resulting from whiplash, carpal-tunnel syndrome, or extended eye contact with two clowns smushing their faces together.
Colby Bryant is a licensed neuromuscular-massage therapist who specializes in soft-tissue ailments such TMJ disorder, carpal-tunnel syndrome, and whiplash. By identifying sources of tension, Colby hopes to isolate treatment and accelerate the healing process. A typical session may consist of Swedish strokes to promote circulation or firmer deep-tissue pressure to access lower-layer aches.
