Though they specialize in diverse fields—Rolfing, massage therapy, and acupuncture, to name a few—the team members at Kinetikos Bodywork Therapy work together to balance the body’s internal systems and eliminate roadblocks on the pathway to physical and mental well being. The center’s certified Rolfers work to improve skeletal alignment through holistic fascial-manipulation techniques that approach the body as an integrated structure. In the same spirit, craniosacral therapists work with the bones of the skull to manipulate the central nervous system, and acupuncturists tap into the body’s regenerative abilities with strategically placed needles. Not to be outdone, the center’s massage experts also draw in clients thanks to their diversified skills, which encompass deep-tissue pressure and sports techniques designed to assuage muscles injured while sprinting across fields or walking through batting cages.

Salon 708's team of professionals promotes beauty, health, and relaxation with a menu of salon and spa services. To transform or maintain the hairdo, a stylist cuts, colors, and textures coifs into the individual's desired look. For relaxation, a massage therapist eases muscles with the soothing strokes of sundry modalities, such as Swedish, shiatsu, and hot stone. The salon's waxing specialist, meanwhile, applies Nufree Nudesse, a soy-based, all-natural product, to erase unwanted hairs without irritating sensitive skin. Salon 708’s interior houses sleek hardwood floors, cool blue and light brown walls with a hint of exposed brick, and yellow lights that hang down from the ceiling like Spider-Man or Man-Whose-Feet-Got-Tied-to-the-Rafters.
When chronically pained Charles Hung finally arrived at rolfing, it was as a last resort. The aches induced by a childhood injury had yet to dissipate, and physical therapy, massage, and other traditional treatments had little effect. But after just one round of the connective-tissue manipulation technique, Charles felt some relief. After a few more rounds, he found his usually stiff lower back, neck, and shoulders to be flexible and relaxed. He attained certification and now uses rolfing on clients suffering from chronic pain, poor posture, or other types of discomfort.
