Jade Lutes believes that the best treatment requires a skilled hand, as well as undivided attention to the client's needs??a term she calls ?mindful wellness.? She cultivated this ideology as a student at Universal College of Healing Arts in Omaha, NE, where she learned to traverse achy musculature with flowing Swedish bodywork, flexibility-increasing thai, reiki energy healing, and deep-tissue techniques. Now, in the comfort of her cozy Djedu Massage studio, Jade can ease tension with these healing modalities, or her signature myofascial release method, which uses firm pressure to alleviate tension in lower-layer muscles, and photos of puppies wearing puppy costumes to blow minds.
Sharon Maricle knows that good massage should never hurt. In her 20 years of providing bodywork therapy, the licensed massage therapist has come to believe that pure, complete relief can be attained without the deep-pressure, painful massage styles adopted by many therapists. Of course, Sharon understands that everybody has a different pressure threshold, and she adjusts her technique to suit her client, ensuring everyone can enjoy a deep, therapeutic massage. Instead of using one-size-fits-all massage strokes, Sharon attends to her clients' specific concerns, including soreness and tension, with everything from light, relaxing strokes to deeper and more focused pressure. She augments traditional Swedish massage with specialty techniques including Chinese cupping and color puncture, which uses colored lights instead of acupuncture needles to stimulate the body's meridian points and demonstrate the potential of black-and-white tattoos.
At Revitalize Massage + Spa, soft lighting sets the tone in private treatment rooms, where attentive therapists address clients’ aches, pains, and aesthetic concerns with custom-tailored body services, including massage therapy, exfoliation, and body wraps. Each therapist and aesthetician takes time to listen to clients’ concerns, which can range from stress or muscle pain to dry or sensitive skin.
Depending on the clients’ desired results, the staff can perform a slew of treatments, such as dry brushing to remove dead skin cells and leave the whole body buttery soft. Massage therapists can tackle old sports’ injuries or everyday tension with a massage selection that includes Swedish, deep tissue, hot stone, and aromatherapy. Additionally, the spa offers mobile massage services, where a therapist travels with a specialty chair to sites where massages are needed most, such as offices or the parents’ sections at youth soccer games.
After a hard hit during college football, Doctor of Chiropractic Travis Bangert thought his season was over. But then he saw the team chiropractor and, to his astonishment, he was back on the field and 100% better by the next game. It was at that moment that he knew he would become a chiropractor to help others achieve the same results.
Dr. Bangert’s colleague at Advanced Chiropractic Solutions, Doctor of Chiropractic Jessica Fleming, also found her passion for chiropractic treatments through a sports injury. She was 10 years old and competing in gymnastics tournaments nearly every weekend. Traditional medical doctors told her rest would heal her back; it did not. So she saw a chiropractor, and within weeks, she was back to her normal sports routine.
Both doctors’ backgrounds help them truly understand what their patients are going through when they come in for help. The chiropractors dispense manual adjustments and massages to alleviate everything from migraines to back injuries caused by patients trying to manually adjust their own spines.
Even though the number 10 is in its name, Good Life Fitness and N-10sive Boot Camps runs more than ten boot camps and group fitness sessions per week; rather, the facility hosts hundreds. Their namesake boot-camp workouts trim physiques through burpees, pushups, squats, and other calorie-torching calisthenics. Blast X classes empower abs to deflect tickles with warning growls, and Synergy X yoga lengthens limbs and improves balance. Additional services such as personal training and nutritional counseling complement group classes with a more personalized approach to achieving a healthy lifestyle.
Dr. Greg Mongeon refuses to confine his chiropractic expertise to the office; he has taken his know-how on the road and served high-school sports teams, mountain-bike racers, and even a rodeo circuit. In the same convivial spirit, he occasionally hosts complimentary banquet dinners to chat with past and prospective clients.
The doctor channels more than a decade of experience to correct spinal misalignments through a combination of hands-on adjustments, preventative tips, and rehabilitative services. With a constantly updated supply of vitamin and mineral supplements, he works to ensure that vertebrae stay strong in the face of rapidly changing trends regarding where it is cool to keep one’s piano. Licensed massage therapists on staff also help to alleviate aches and pains with adept kneads.
