In the comfort of serene, private rooms, massage therapist Tracie Nichols treats clients with a medley of kneading styles to address their individual ailments. During her more then seven years of experience, Tracie has specialized her skills around massage styles that assist in pain management, such as deep-tissue, trigger-point-therapy, and fibromyalgia massage. As a frequent student in the field as well as a practitioner, Tracie has added an array of other muscle-soothing styles to her repertoire, including hot-stone massage, cold-stone therapy for migraine sufferers, and cupping methods believed to infuse the skin with a more youthful, saucer-esque appearance. Clients may choose to add aromatherapy elements into their sessions, infusing the regular oil with calming scents, or culminate their service by dipping hands and feet into softening paraffin wax.
Deep-seated stresses dissipate at the hands of Limback Wellness Center's certified massage therapists. The center specializes in hot-stone and hot-towel massages, which employ penetrating heat and soothing circular motions to boost circulation, oxygenate muscles, and alleviate the lingering stiffness that comes from serving as the spring festival’s Maypole. Aside from their popular heated modalities, the team of male and female massage therapists treats clients to gentle relaxation massages and more focused deep-tissue work.
Chiropractic is based on holistic investigations into patients' heath, searching out underlying causes of sickness rather than simply treating symptoms. Doctor of Chiropractic Richard Hruby is a staunch advocate of this whole-body approach, bringing a range of therapeutic services to bear on patrons' health complaints. In addition to spine-adjusting treatments, the center also provides relaxing massage and acupuncture that realigns energy flow and punctures the tiny subdermal balloons that keep making you float.
Inside the private treatment rooms at Natural Therapeutics, Rachel Warnock spends her days energizing clients with holistic ayurvedic services. As a trained ayurvedic wellness consultant with a master's in vedic science, she is well equipped to design personalized treatment plans to address a variety of health concerns, from easing digestive pains to revving up metabolisms so they run faster than a G4 jet fueled by espresso. Depending on each client's issues, these treatment plans can include diet suggestions, cleansing detox teas, and herbal remedies, which Rachel retails at the center.

Leah's unique mother-to-be massages target areas of the body affected by pregnancy, and signature sessions allow her to collaborate with patients for 30–90 minutes of customized motion.
