Todd Beckman founded MassageLuXe with the notion that five-star service should not be limited to pricey hotels. Today, the spa's team of massage therapists and aestheticians continues to realize and build upon Todd's initial aspirations. A spa day at MassageLuXe includes all the perks one might expect from a vacation resort, from facials and massages to full-body waxing and baths in warm, effervescent champagne. The company's services tend to exceed expectations in other ways, too; along with standard massages such as Swedish and deep tissue, therapists are proficient in specialty modalities such as bio-mat, reflexology, and aromatherapy.
By addressing the whole body rather than just a tense back, a stiff elbow, or a super bratty shoulder blade, Holistic Healthcare Choices owner and licensed massage therapist Drew Clark can tackle a plethora of corporeal issues at their bodily roots. Natural light floods into his minimalist studio, where he performs a repertoire of rejuvenating massage modalities.
The licensed massage therapists at Soul Shine Spa & Wellness mend muscles with flowing Swedish strokes, reflexology, and Thai stretch bodywork. Clients can also request indulgent add-ons such as hot stones and lavender aromatherapy. The environmentally-conscious spa uses petroleum-free eco-fin products and biodegradable plastics.
Venus Ugolini opened the doors of Twisted Hair Salon in July 2011, offering hair, skin, and nail services to men and women alike. A graduate of Paul Mitchell cosmetology school, she combines her professional experience with that of a team of skilled stylists, colorists, and makeup artists. That team joins forces to offer a comprehensive list of services, including updos, eyelash extensions, and facials. Committed to taking a personal interest in their clients’ style even outside the salon’s walls, staffers can also provide helpful tips for maintaining results at home.
Upon graduating from the Professional Massage Training Center with a license to knead, Donny Bryant joined forces with personal trainer Tammy Eaton, owner of Git Fit Headquarters. After a season of soothing Git Fit clients, Donny’s skillful hands now provide relief during clinic hours at Strong Gym. When he isn’t working on his own turf, he brings his massage techniques to homes, hotels, offices, and heated conversations. He also travels with the Missouri Sports Massage Team, helping athletes prepare for and recover from marathons, triathlons, and bike races with compression and cross-fiber techniques. In an effort to support the community, Donny offers his services to local and statewide nonprofit agencies.
