For the past four years, Dr. Mindy Brown has helped patients conquer back pain at Innate Family Chiropractic, a practice located inside in an 18th-century Victorian-style house. She reveals imbalances in the feet or stress points on the back with computerized screenings, and realigns vertebrae with spinal adjustments. Licensed massage therapist Eva Perkins tackles tension with her bare hands, kneading the deep tissues of muscles and soothing them with hot stones. Clients also learn corrective exercises to do at home or during boring work meetings, maintaining results long after appointments.
When Jen Hibbard opened Sant? Massage in 2011, she saw it almost as a wellness studio?a place where clients could come to improve their overall health, not just as a place where massage was a luxury. The therapist, who often blogs about improving her own health, reduces chronic pain and tension with everything from deep-tissue and therapeutic massages to hot-stone and prenatal massages.
Jen learned her techniques at Heritage College, where she obtained an associate's degree in therapeutic massage and occupational studies. Jen emerged from the 1,200-hour state-accredited program with knowledge in a number of fields, including anatomy and physiology, Chinese medicine, and school-mascot massages.
In a way, the ability to heal people is in Simeon Neely's blood. Her great-great-grandmother, great-grandmother, and mother all dedicated their lives to being healers. When her mother passed on the ancient knowledge to Simeon, she continued to develop her healing skills and discovered that massage therapy was her true calling. Now a nationally certified massage therapist and member of the Associated Bodywork & Massage Professionals organization, Simeon is skilled in some 10 types of massage modalities, yet somehow has never been asked to perform all of them at once.

Nationally certified massage therapist Kendra Wright leads clients onto a higher plane of inner peace with full-body Swedish, hot-stone, and therapeutic massages. Her treatments focus exclusively on the back, neck, and shoulders so she can eliminate pain caused by bad posture or pet monkeys that insist on being given piggyback rides. She customizes massages, adjusting from firm to deep-pressure kneading to treat client-specific issues and helping clients sink into more tranquil trances with aromatherapy. When not untying muscular knots, the therapist uses her hands for another hobby that promulgates peace?making scented soy candles.
