Karynn MacKinnon has worked as a student athletic trainer for the Detroit Lions and both the US and Canadian national cycling teams. Now, after a 20-year stint managing special events, she's returned to her first love by becoming a licensed massage therapist and second-degree reiki practitioner. In the comfort of her own private studio, Karynn can unblock energy channels with a reiki healing session or temper chronic pain with deep-tissue pressure or the flowing stokes of Swedish bodywork.
Amanda Barber, the licensed massage therapist at Elite Mind and Body, offers relaxation and deep-tissue massage. But regardless of the modality, she’s happy to customize each treatment to meet her clients’ specific needs and comfort levels. Furthermore, she offers an aromatherapy option, as well as her signature AromaTouch massage, which entails eight essential oils applied to the back and feet to counter stress, toxins, and inflammation.
Not only is Samira Alemana a Reiki master teacher and practitioner, she's an expert in so many energy healing techniques that she could power a large city. Clients can solicit her intuitive abilities for an in-depth tarot reading or request Goddess Mentor life coaching for advice on work, love, or finances. Energy healing sessions may be performed at her office or remotely via Skype.
"Integrated" is the operative word in Quantum Integrated Health, where chiropractors, weight-loss specialists, nutritionists, and massage therapists join forces to help their clients live better, more fulfilling lives. In addition to custom medical fat-loss programs, they administer postural screenings and treat auto or workplace injuries.
Bohemian Massage & Bodywork's featured massage therapist, Valerie Kelly, honed her craft at chiropractic offices, spas, and sports-treatment facilities for years. This diversity has helped Valerie develop a signature massage style that fuses therapeutic care with spa-like pampering. Her roster includes clinical treatments, such as therapeutic massages to help rehabilitate after auto accidents and sports-related barroom brawls. She can also perform lavish seaweed wraps and sugar and salt body scrubs. As a trained doula, she has the know-how to help ease pregnancy woes with labor and birth massages or memorialize the experience with plaster belly casts of expectant mothers.
Dr. Troy Dreiling has taken his passion for chiropractic outside the usual places. In the past 18 years, he's opened clinics in Romania, served on Panamanian missions, raised money for charity, and hosted a family-friendly radio show that discusses healthy choices.
Dr. Dreiling hasn't neglected his office, however. At Zenaptic Chiropractic, he strives to alleviate all types of corporeal discomfort with a combination of traditional and high-tech treatments: adjustments and massages work alongside heated hydro-massages and traction treatments. A firm believer in "Dr. You," Dr. Dreiling also empowers patients by teaching them self-care techniques, such as stretches, nutrition tips, and ways to distinguish a safe motorcycle jump from a risky one.
