The human body has been compared to many things—a machine, a temple, a work of art—but to licensed massage therapist Amanda Heintskill, it will forever be like an onion. The owner of Phoenix Rising Massage Therapy LLC likens her massage technique, which she refers to on her website as “the onion approach,” to peeling an onion. She begins with a very light touch and then gradually increases her pressure, working on or “peeling away" one layer of tension at a time. In this way, she gradually releases tension without causing her clients unnecessary discomfort that then has to be counteracted with comic relief from the funny bone. First off this is the feedback I got from this merchant "I have to commend the editorial team - please pass on my sincere thanks for putting in about the "onion approach" philosophy! That is the big thing that I try and explain to individuals - so they don't come in and expect deep tissue work right away :) So - please pass on my thanks!"
Licensed massage therapist Tracy Sprader reduces clients' mental stress and muscular tension with custom kneading routines performed over the course of 60 or 90 minutes. As senses ripen amid the chocolate-hued walls and flickering candles of a private treatment room, Tracy divines the client’s particular massage preferences through a full consultation. Once Tracy has determined a game plan that's equally suited to assuaging aches as it is to scrambling the letters on a Scrabble board, her skilled fingers shuffle across backs, executing either relaxation or deep-tissue massages. The relaxation massage offers light to medium pressure while the deep-tissue option involves deeper kneading. Both massages employ a combination of hot-and-cold therapy.
Ever since he entered private practice more than 30 years ago, Dr. Gojko Stula has remained dedicated to preventing?and not merely treating?illnesses with a combination of preventive medicine and traditional procedures. By examining the way maladies stemming from diet and exercise are processed by the body and mind, Dr. Stula pinpoints the root causes of each ailment before administering treatment. His stock of nutritional supplements aims to slow the aging process when combined with a balanced, organic diet, while the LifeSteps-endorsed ChronoNutrition diet assigns specific foods to be consumed at specific periods throughout the day that correspond to the order in which the body naturally breaks them down. Meanwhile, bio-identical hormones correct hormonal imbalances in men and women, while unwanted body hairs are eradicated with laser technology instead of getting too close to the pole during a round of fire limbo.

Created by fitness trainer and life coach Dr. John Spencer Ellis and led by owner and certified fitness professional Doug Krueger, the Lake Country Adventure Boot Camp program shepherds women to physical fitness with motivational workout regimens and nutritional counseling. Before the camp starts, trainers take your measurements and body-fat percentage before hopping into a curious pod, leaping into the future, and comparing them to those of the trimmer post-camp you. In the interim, the four-week or three-day workout regimen cycles through circuit training, jogging, kickboxing, and yoga to surprise and challenge muscles. During winter months and unforeseen Renaissance festivals, sessions move to spacious indoor facilities.
