Karen Stoehr established 9th Street Wellness Center after a bout with cancer turned her attention to the healing arts. With the help of her staff, Karen guides clients toward whole-body health using services including massage, reiki, reflexology, and many other alternative energy healing techniques. The center regularly hosts seminars by experts in yoga, EFT, reconnective healing, healthy cooking, and nutrition. They provide clients with access to self-help books and discussion groups, equipping individuals with the ability to self-heal.
With 12 years of experience in martial arts, Daniel Strelka knows his way around a confrontation. Believing that bodies fight themselves when they are stressed, Daniel employs different massage styles to ease stress and help the body heal itself, not unlike cartoon hero Wolverine and real hero Four-Armed Doctor Man. He has patients lie down for 30 or 60 minutes of massage services as he eases sinews by employing strokes of the Swedish and relaxation modalities. Daniel's health center also burrows down deeper into the body through acupressure and cranial-sacral massage, and he offers reiki and guided meditation to quiet surging storms in the cerebral cortex.
An Aveda concepts salon, Tonic employs an arsenal of eco-conscious Aveda products and treatments to revamp masculine manes and lovely lady locks. Their hair hotshots are trained twice a year in order to stay up-to-date on the latest trends and techniques. With both of the available treatments, a stress-relieving session starts things off using Aveda blue oil as a seasoned stylist dispels tension with a light massage to your head and aggressive tickling so clients can kick back and enjoy their tress-tending. For fashionable females, Tonic styles their strands with a shampoo, cut, and blowout treatment followed by an eyebrow wax to complete the expert face framing. Meanwhile, male clients can opt for the option to get a thorough head-edit with a shampoo, cut, style, and a stress-relieving treatment that includes a hot-towel treatment, which helps follicles relax so they don't tense up and hide when out on a date.
If clients peek into the drawers of one of the stylist stations at Chrysalis Salon & Spa, they'll find a variety of tools—scissors for snipping new looks, foils for tinting locks with highlights, and spray for teasing hair into updos. Over at the nail stations, they'll find a sweeping rainbow of shellac, acrylic, and gel polishes. And in the spa area, there are oils and skincare products for facials, waxes, and body treatments.
