In 1997, Elizabeth Hotard experienced a life-threatening allergic reaction that changed her perspective on health and healing. At the time, she was a practical nurse, so she took pharmaceuticals and steroids to recover. But the meds yielded disappointing results, so she left them behind and started living a healthier life. By adding whole foods, raw vegetables, supplements, juices, and herbs to her diet, she began to feel better than she did in her twenties. Her positive experience with natural remedies led her to a career in alternative health care. Elizabeth presently holds licenses and certifications as a practical nurse, a massage therapist, and a natural-health practitioner. Her menu of naturopathic treatments consists of massage therapy, detoxification, and wellness services such as nutritional counseling. In accordance with Integrated Wellness' mission to help people "achieve optimal health and potential to enjoy life to the fullest," she excludes inessential drugs, surgeries, or knock-knock jokes when suggesting treatments.
While following Wellness in Motion Chiropractic's mission to help people achieve better health and wellness, Doctors of Chiropractic Lorenz Hamburger and Erica Manger work with a handpicked crew of massage therapists. The doctors team up with the therapists to select and customize a massage for each client, addressing individual needs, goals, and knots. Clients can choose either a male or female member of the massage team, all of whom utilize therapeutic deep-tissue and Swedish massage techniques, as well as massages geared toward expecting mothers, athletes, and models who have spent the past month posing for a marble sculpture. In addition to chiropractic care and massages, Wellness in Motion Chiropractic helps guide patients toward better health with exercise, nutrition, and motivational coaching.

AVIVA is owned and operated by Linda Strickland, a nationally certified massage therapist dedicated to de-stressing her home state's citizens. At AVIVA, customers are viewed as individuals, not bioengineered clones with exponentially crumbling genomes. This is why your hour-long massage will not consist of prepackaged muscle swabbing but rather a careful treatment tailored to your body's personal needs. Techniques may include the gentle Swedish, therapeutic deep tissue, neuromuscular plumbing, connective tissue-focused aid, or some combination of assorted traditions. All sessions include indulgent hot towels, tranquil music, and a nasal massage in the form of essential-oil aromatherapy.

Further slip into a state of bliss by taking deep breaths of slippery serenity aromatherapy oils during 60 minutes of gentle Swedish massage ($100). Choose a different essential oil to envelop your senses during a snuggle in the steam spa, which will cleanse your pores while eliminating wrinkles from permanent argyle socks ($40).
