An almost-40,000-square-foot indoor soccer complex, Salmon Creek Indoor Sports Arena facilitates heel-based competition with its year-round lineup of soccer leagues, skill-development programs, and open-field pickup games for all ages. Part-time Pelés can sign up for a yearly membership ($15) and receive an ID card with their picture on it that allows them to register for activities and prevents retired World Cup mascots from stealing their identity. Individuals can mix it up with different teams randomly assembled by arena staff during the weekly open-play sessions for coed adults ($5), youths ($5), and women ($8).

The professionals at Elements Therapeutic Massage Salmon Creek approach each massage differently. They understand that each body functions?and malfunctions?in its own way, so each session with a new client begins with a brief chat about his or her health concerns, treatment goals, and general preferences.

Massage benefits can include relaxation, pain relief, and increased flexibility.
