The licensed massage therapists at Light Hands Therapeutic Massage East focus on medical massages to help prevent injury and foster the muscular foundation for healthier, more pliable backs. The staff's gliding effleurage and smooth strokes supplement traditional medical treatments to flush the bloodstream and muscles of toxins, tension, and miniaturized submarines manned by overly ambitious research scientists. Therapists analyze clients' everyday habits for signs of trending problems and then proceed to address individual areas of tension to boost spirits and overall range of motion.
A tranquil blue hue blankets the walls inside Malama Massage Center. In private rooms, massage therapists dispense Swedish and deep-tissue massages for individuals, couples, or singing quartets. The therapists also take care of the UK football, track and field, and men’s basketball teams.
At Everlasting Beauty Med Spa, skilled aestheticians wield Theraderm, Dermalogica, and BareMinerals products to refine pores, firm up skin, and help enhance beauty. In addition to five kinds of massage, they also perform FDA-approved VelaShape body-contouring treatments, which target cellulite with noninvasive infrared-light energy. VelaShape is said to diminish waistlines and slim thighs without the aid of a concave mirror.
Licensed massage therapist Todd Hiett, a graduate of the Lexington Healing Arts Academy, loosens the muscles surrounding shoulders, necks, and spinal cords with a relaxing spread of massage modalities. Target tension embedded far below surface-level sinews with a deep-tissue massage or select a therapeutic massage to treat specific concerns such as stiffness of the neck or lingering spelling-bee injuries. Guests can rest as Swedish massage therapy loosens backs with long strokes and kneading that gently evicts delinquent tension. Those who choose the hot-stone massage can revel in the pleasant warmth of smooth, hot stones that reduce muscular inflammation and leave clients calmer than a cucumber trained in tricking lie-detector tests.
Bright Life Massage Therapy offers many options to suit your body's needs. Massage can help reduce common discomforts such as back pain, headache, neck and shoulder pain, and general stress. Choose from Swedish, deep tissue, sports, and prenatal massage. Each massage is tailored to your individual needs and wishes.
As licensed massage therapists and veterans of the U.S. military, Kris Lane and Colleen Hall decided to open a massage business that would have a positive impact on their community. Lane's massage-therapy journey began after leaving the Air Force, earning her massage-therapy diploma, and performing an internship with ob-gyn doctors in which she served women experiencing high-risk pregnancies. She also became certified as an equine sports massage therapist, which inspired her to relocate from Omaha to Louisville. Not long after moving to Kentucky, Lane was in a major car accident that led to reconstructive surgeries, a barrage of physical therapy, and three years of being unable to work. Though the accident left her with permanent nerve damage that threatened to end her career, Lane refused to let pain and numbness steal her opportunity to help others. She has worked with dancers from the Louisville ballet, Broadway performers, and athletes and uses her training and personal experiences to address discomfort caused by acute injury or sleepwalking in pointe shoes.
Lane currently passes on her knowledge as an instructor at Daymar College, where Colleen Hall—A+ Massage Pros co-owner, fellow massage therapist, and veteran of the Kentucky Air National Guard—completed her training. Lane and Hall go above and beyond alleviating physical pain with therapeutic massages. They created a Pay It Forward Program that not only helps local veterans, but also allows patrons to provide for someone in need. The caring duo reduces a participant's regular massage rate by $10 and reserves it for active-duty military personnel, disabled veterans, or any veteran who requires medical massage therapy but cannot afford treatment.
