Why did you decide to start this business?
Although Physical Connections only recently celebrated its grand opening, fitness, massage and nutrition have always been a big part of my life. I owned a mobile fitness business for 10 years, and I have contributed to the health and wellness industry since 1988. After battling cancer for five years, I personally identify with the importance of staying healthy and being fit for longevity. I bring life experience as well as education to my business.
Do you use any products or brands you're particularly proud of? What makes them uniquely effective?
For massage clients, I use Biotone massage lotion, and I apply warm, steamed towels to remove any excess lotion. Yoga classes have access to prop blocks for assisting in movements. I customize Meal plans as well as personal training sessions.
A pinched nerve. A tweaked muscle. An out-of-whack joint. For most people, these ailments represent an inevitable facet of the aging process; for massage therapist Karin Ward, they represent an opportunity for improvement. Karin uses her sessions to jumpstart the healing process with therapeutic bodywork learned over a 13-year career. Whether she's easing nagging pain with gentle Swedish strokes or targeting deeper discomfort with the help of soothing hot stones, Karin delivers treatments that leave her clients rested, relaxed, and ready to face the day's next challenge.
The team behind Chez Beaute Salon and Spa primps patrons with services amid stately wooden styling stations, tile floors, and orange accents. Hairstylists mold manes with products by Redken, Pureology, Paul Mitchell, and Brazilian Blowout, and makeup artists paint faces with custom techniques and products by jane iredale. Beauty techs tint fa?ades with spray tanning and nourish epidermises with skin treatments by Dermalogica. They also evict unwanted hair with wax, enhance beloved fuzz with brow tinting and lash extensions, and adorn hands and feet with OPI polish. Massage and bodywork heighten the relaxation. At the front of the shop, a boutique area with jewelry, hats, and scarves equips guests with accessories before they return to the outside world and their robot overlords.
When muscles' fibers part ever so slightly, blood flows efficiently and healing begins. At Healing Arts Awareness, licensed massage therapist Rob Warfield creates this space within muscles by working across the fibers—a technique appropriately dubbed cross-fiber. Rob often integrates innovative methods such as cross-fiber strokes, acupressure (trigger-point work), and stretching into his massage therapy sessions, depending on whether his clients are sore from a tough week, experiencing the physical challenges of pregnancy, or dealing with chronic muscular disorders. And of course, Rob can also deploy these specialized maneuvers to boost the healing effects of more traditional Swedish, sports, and pregnancy massages. Relaxation and healing is furthered with the soothing sounds of tropical raindrops with crickets or oceanwaves crashing on shore.
