Massage 4 Wellness’s founder worked as a massage therapist for 19 years—many of them in physical-therapy and chiropractic offices. The rest of the staff of female and male therapists also boasts extensive massage experience, and two staffers are also certified fitness trainers who have worked in physical rehabilitation.
All of this experience under one roof guarantees that clients' issues— such as a sore back, strained shoulders, or frayed nerves—will be remedied by professional hands well-versed in treating the body. During treatments, therapists soothe tension, tightness, and chronic pain by utilizing a variety of massage modalities such as deep-tissue and sports massage. Therapists also offer Swedish and hot-stone treatments for those looking for a relaxation-focused experience, and they give expectant mothers a break from singing lullabies about building a successful stock portfolio with prenatal massage. The facility also includes a newly remodeled gym where clients can participate in personal-fitness-training sessions.
Licensed acupuncturist and massage therapist Ariana Geoffrey Stahlka strives to restore the body's balance and harmony with alternative-medicine techniques. Stahlka earned a MS in Oriental medicine and a BS in nutrition at Midwest College of Oriental Medicine, one of the first colleges of acupuncture and Oriental medicine in the United States. She works along the body's energy meridians as outlined in traditional Chinese medicine, using acupuncture to alleviate chronic pain, fatigue, depression, and even aesthetic concerns. She navigates those same meridians during Krashada acupressure-therapy sessions, which uses pressure from hands to help enhance energy flow and release blockages that may cause physical pain, mental discomfort, or poor decision-making during Final Jeopardy!
Along with classic massage techniques, Stahlka utilizes craniosacral and multibody-release therapies to enhance motor function. Her background in nutrition allows her to address physical ailments with the complex art of Chinese herbology.
Knockouts Haircuts for Men amps up the classic barbershop experience with a lavish, sports-themed approach to men's styling that has been featured on Today and CNBC's The Big Idea with Donny Deutsch. At a still-growing number of locations throughout the country, the company's all-female staff of stylists quarterbacks a full playbook of services ranging from bare-essential to spa-worthy. First and foremost, they clip shaggy locks, but they also administer facials, manicures, massages, and waxes. Complimentary beverages are included with every visit, giving patrons something to sip on while watching a sports game on TV or contemplating how they would fend off a lion using just a comb.
Licensed massage therapist Christina Pocharasang at Natural Art of Massage relieves clenched muscles and tense minds with a retinue of modalities. With the aid of all-natural creams and oils, her sweeping strokes spell out Swedish and deep-tissue movements that dispel stress and unravel knots in backs, shoulders, and limbs. The bodywork specialist also treats skin to natural facials and harnesses the penetrating heat of warm river stones to release knots without touching them, much like a Boy Scout with telekinesis.

People go to spas to forget about the outside world. How does your decor help create an atmosphere where visitors can unwind?
Each massage takes place inside a private studio with soft lighting and relaxing music.
Do you agree with the phrase "beauty is on the inside?" Why or why not?*
Yes. No matter what happens in your life, or what surrounds you, joy and beauty flows within you.
What's the most common beauty mistake you see people make? What would you recommend they do instead?
Being hard on themselves and not taking time out of their lives to relax and let their minds recuperate.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
It all starts with making that first step.
