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.
Glow's resident naturopath, Dr. Rachel Erickson, is a licensed primary doctor who focuses on the health of the whole person, treating not just the symptoms but the root causes of interconnected physical and emotional ailments. Depending on your needs and her diagnosis, she might recommend nutritional changes, herbal supplementation, or 50 push-ups "right here, right now." The good doctor is particularly adept at treating digestive and skin complaints, endocrine disorders, and chronic disease. She also has a passion for women's health—mitigating the discomforts of PMS, menopause, cervical dysplasia, and bad romances.
Lemongrass, ginger, turmeric, camphor, and lime—massage therapist Michele Mecum and her staff use this quintet of soothing scents during Thai herbal massages, pairing them with rhythmic strokes to send patrons into a deeply relaxed state: Vermont. Relaxation is the driving purpose behind Michele’s massages, which she has honed over 14 years in the field. Soothing Swedish massages employ sweeping, gentle strokes to boost blood flow and flexibility. They also perform deep-tissue massages, which mute chronically achy muscles by breaking up knots in lower-layer musculature.
The featured panelists use traditional and non-traditional marketing day in and day out to get new customers and build brand awareness-- and Groupon is bringing them together to answer questions and discuss best practices. This session will break down tactics, costs, and the opportunity costs of using vs. not using different mediums. We'll also cover how Groupon works as a marketing super-tool and will demonstrate how some of our small business tools work. Space for this event is limited, so RSVP before it fills up. Hope to see you there!
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.”
