The trio of owners behind Pamper Me Massage & Day Spa each contribute something unique to their business: Gary Lindquist is the financial backer, Daniel Lindquist is the promoter and go-to guy, and Eva Fleck is the face of the company. Their team of skilled specialists comes in three parts as well, much like a short fantasy novel adapted into an extremely long film series. Their nail tech pampers hands and feet with mani-pedis, acrylic nails, and hand-painted nail art. The aesthetician purifies pores with facials, body wraps, and sauna sessions, and tints exteriors with airbrush tanning and prune unwanted fuzz with wax. For full-on relaxation, the massage therapist plies bodies with techniques such as Swedish, deep tissue, trigger point, hot stone, and prenatal.
The team of trainers and aestheticians at Vitality Wellness Center helps guests restore beauty both inside and out with an array of services tailored to fitness, skincare, and mental well-being. Zumba, yoga, and belly-dance workouts take place in an airy studio with wooden floors, colorful murals, and a smoothie bar, allowing students to replenish lost electrolytes and continue campaigns of eradication against perfidious fruit. An on-site infrared sauna revs metabolisms, and body wraps purge toxins by enveloping limbs in mud, aloe vera, and seaweed. Vitality Wellness Center's aestheticians further pursue the center’s relaxing mission by sloughing dead skin cells from faces and dusty masquerade disguises during skin-pampering facials.
When she isn't paddling a dragon boat down the Willamette River, licensed massage therapist Debra Oden helps her clients navigate the turbulent waters of stress, chronic pain, and injury toward relaxation. She customizes a fresh approach for every patient—drawing from more than 10 years of bodywork experience—whether visitors simply wish to relax or have recently injured themselves attempting to crab-walk up an escalator. To supplement her mastery of Swedish strokes and specialty styles such as pregnancy massage, she holds certifications in shiatsu, deep-tissue, and neuromuscular therapies. This leads to highly flexible wellness plans—guests might stop in for a one-time appointment or schedule recurring sessions that steadily unwind knots of tension. Regardless of the condition she treats, however, Debra's ultimate goal remains the same: to improve her clients’ quality of life.
As a former athlete, Dr. John-Paul D. Whitmire of Whitmire Chiropractic knows something about soreness. His early exposure to sports medicine primed his later chiropractic training, where he built on an already solid knowledge of functional movement. Today he draws on more than 19 years of experience to vanquish pain in children, adults, and athletes. In his rehab-equipped office, he deploys a variety of techniques, which are safe for every patient because they're noninvasive and free of drugs.
The skilled stylists at the full-service Haute Society Hair Studio shape new 'dos under the gleaming lights of a chic, modern studio. Stylists revamp locks with a fresh cut and blow-dry, leaving patrons with sleeker, healthier hair and a lighter head for less labored neck movement. Additionally, customers may further their fringe transformations with a coloring service, infusing looks with a new all-over hue. Hair services last an average of 90 minutes, and once they are through, customers can collect their discarded hair to knit into sweaters as keepsakes for friends and family.
Each of Hydro Zen’s heated Aqua Massage beds harnesses the power of the tides to relieve sore muscles, targeting areas of chronic tension with rolling waves and vibrating jet streams. Personalized controls allow each guest to dial up specialized sequences from 36 water jets that send ebbing and flowing currents of water pulsating across the full body. Unlike a traditional massage, the therapeutic aqua massage does not require clients to disrobe, sparing them the awkwardness of explaining away a past therapist’s tattooed signature.
