Their overall goal is to promote wellness and help clients achieve healthier lifestyles through the power of touch and holistic approaches.
Though many clients visit Medicine River Center for a massage that will treat tight muscles or back pain, many others visit for metaphysical reasons as opposed to just physical ones. That's because the staff is stocked with astrologists, psychics, and mediums. Each practitioner's services vary, depending on their area of expertise, but all offer alternative solutions that can help customers deal with stress, navigate personal crises, and find their life path.
Techniques from myriad cultures converge at Massage by Sarai—from the rhythmic, flowing strokes of the ancient Polynesian lomilomi modality to the gentle pressure of the japanese toning facial massage. But whether they’re designed to induce relaxation or rejuvenate the skin, all treatments can be luxurious. Clients need only opt for one of the multitude of add-ons, such as roman dry brushing, aromatherapy, paraffin dips, and peppermint foot scrubs.
Meghan's Hair Design is owned and operated by Meghan Stauffer, a licensed stylist who delights in making her clients look and feel spectacular. In her styling chair located inside New Appearances Salon, clients settle in for chic haircuts and rich color services, including sun-kissed highlights and specialty treatments. They relax as Meghan trims locks into a new 'do, adds luxurious length with extensions, or shapes eyebrows using wax and a human-evolution textbook as a guide to unchecked body hair. Patrons can head into the rest of New Appearances for an indulgent makeup application or a soothing massage.
In a busy and hectic world, licensed massage therapist Michelle Peterson invites her clients to lie down, exhale deeply, and escape from their day for 60 minutes. A student of Swedish, deep-tissue, and Thai massage styles, Michelle collaborates with clients to identify the type of massage that best meets their needs. High-quality oils and lotions soothe the body and soften the muscles as Michelle realigns connective tissue, teases out tension, and reduces joint tension. Bellevue Best Massage also offers prenatal massage to ease pains associated with pregnancy as well as hot-stone massage, or LaStone therapy, which is French for “the stones they made my body good feel.”
Founded by two students of the Brenneke School of Massage, Essential Life Therapy pampers its clients with the devoted attention of a cupboard genie. A team of trained practitioners relax tight muscles and clear corpuses of long-standing political tension using a variety of different massage services (all $70; $65 for reiki). Clients can relax under the classic Swedish, push out persistent pains and imbedded javelins with a deep-tissue massage, or try something new with a reflexology or Reiki—a Japanese form that employs gentle touches to heal the body physically, emotionally, and spiritually. All massages begin with a foot-calming bath that doesn’t count as a single minute in your full hour of manual bliss.
