Licensed massage therapist John Slipke helps allay aches with neuromuscular therapy, a medical-massage technique that aims to ease muscle pain, bursitis, and injury-related discomfort. At the start of each appointment, Slipke chats with the client to pinpoint probable causes of tenderness, which may include sciatica, plantar fasciitis, or repeatedly watching Old Yeller. He may also identify pain triggers by analyzing the body's posture. Throughout the session, the client shares feedback, noting when pressure alleviates aches and crackling when attached to a guitar amplifier. After the kneading massage, Slipke crafts a custom wellness plan-including a pain-prevention regimen-with the clinic's internist or chiropractor. Robledo Medical & Wellness Center does not offer prenatal massages.
Village Hair Design first opened its doors in 1958. This old-fashioned barbershop was a haven for men in need of a classic cut-and-shave at a time when it was unseemly to discuss haircuts in public. In 1977, Mike Blaa became an employee and purchased the shop five years later. This licensed barber—alongside his wife Sherry, a licensed cosmetologist, and licensed aestheticians Geenah and Martha—draws on nearly two decades of experience.
Together, they offer an ecclectic mix of services ranging from clipper cuts and classic shaves to perms, mani-pedis, facials, chemical peels, body wraps, and full-body waxing. They also use their skills to serve their community. Since 1981, Mike has helped the men at a Lakeshore nursing home look their best; Sherry spent more than seven years snipping tresses at Misericordia Homes.
