You may visit Holistic House because of a sore back, a migraine, or a sleep disorder, but you won’t be defined by what ails you. Abiding by the principles of integrative medicine, the staff here sees every client as a whole person, a network of physical, mental, and spiritual elements that require equal amounts of focus and care.
The staff practices five categories of alternative medicine to help foster this balance. One example is a mind-body intervention, which includes yoga and meditation. Another, the body-based method, uses massage therapy and chiropractic care to ease muscle soreness and funny bone nihilism. In addition to life-coaching, dietary interventions, and homeopathic medicine, Holistic House also offers deep cleansing facials and full-body waxing.
Charmaine, who worked as a registered nurse for more than 10 years, is a licensed massage therapist and owner of Gold Standard Massage Clinic. Her clinic specializes in therapeutic massage that targets specific muscles and joints for injury prevention and pain management. She relieves tension with a variety of techniques, including Swedish and deep-tissue massage, trigger-point therapy, and hot-stone therapy with warm basalt stones. During sessions, clients can request silence or soothing music.
Though there are only a handful of services on the menu at Diann La Spa LLC, each treatment promises a slightly different experience. Relaxing strokes characterize the standard spa massage, whereas intense kneading marks the deep-tissue massage. For better circulation, hot stones soothe the back along with massage, and to engage senses other than touch, aromatherapeutic oils do the trick.
The slate-blue walls in the studio of Massage by Peggy recall the tranquility of the ocean, which helps to ease clients into a state of relaxation. Aromatherapy scents permeate the candlelit room, while a heated table helps clients unwind better than riding a merry-go-round backwards. Certified massage therapist Peggy eases knots from muscles in modalities including Swedish, sports, and geriatric.
