New Moon Salon & Spa?a full-service day spa?lives up to its name with relaxing nail, massage, and skincare services that rejuvenate bodies and minds. Nail techs keep hands and feet chip-free for up to two weeks with CND Shellac, or hydrate digits with nourishing almond oil during traditional mani-pedis. More than 10 massage modalities call on hot towels and stones to help loosen tight muscles, as essential oils infused with the scent of cedarwood, wild thyme, or eucalyptus instill a sense of calm. The staff also dolls up faces with permanent-makeup applications and uses wax to subtract unwanted hairs and solve tricky arithmetic tattoos.
The health practitioners at Louisville Wellness Center work with one unified purpose: to heal, inspire, and connect with the greater Louisville community. They do this through health and wellness services that range from massage therapy to naturopathic medicine and psychotherapy. Through nutrition coaching, they help clients effectively address digestion issues and stabilize energy levels to avoid afternoon face-plants into computer keyboards. The knowledgeable staff also educates the community throughout the year with monthly wellness talks, women’s mindfulness groups, and training sessions.
Embodywork is a private practice offering safe, nurturing, and inspired care to those challenged with chronic or acute pain. The head therapist is trained in a variety of massage and bodywork specialties which she uses to facilitate overall health for clients in addition to relieving stress and supporting injury rehabilitation.
At heart, Doctor of Chiropractic Randall B. Moore of Moore-Life Chiropractic Wellness Center is a family man and a humanitarian. His work reflects his role as a father: after the birth of his daughter, Dr. Moore decided to train in the Webster technique so that he could help expectant mothers. He is also currently studying toward a diplomate in pediatric-chiropractic care. This compassion extends beyond his flesh and blood, too. He hosts an annual food drive and has designated the first Wednesday of each month as Donation Day, in which clients make a payment of their choice, and the doctor donates the proceeds to local charities and patients who cannot afford treatment.
In addition to specializing in pregnancy and infant care, Dr. Moore has extensive training in treating extremity and sports injuries. He and his team enhance the benefits of chiropractic adjustments with services such as massage therapy, acupuncture, and low-level laser therapy, which is designed to accelerate the body's healing process and enable patients to scan grocery barcodes with their fingers.
Nava Massage And Healing Arts culls massage techniques from locales such as Europe, India, Scandinavia, Asia, and Thailand. The skilled team of therapists tailors these modalities to each individual client, using Swedish when guests want to relax or Thai yoga massage when clients need to have muscles stretched and stimulated at deeper levels. It's this blend of Eastern and Western bodywork traditions that distinguishes the business, like an auto shop that replaces old Ford truck antennas with bamboo stalks.
Theresa discovered the benefits of massage when she was only three months old, needing the gentle kneads and strokes to relieve pains that traditional medicine couldn't help. Rob lived a spiritual life before realizing that his focus on the mind and soul had caused him to overlook the third part of that equation: the body. While these two massage therapists took different paths to their current profession, they both ended up at Beyond BodyWork.
Their clients are nothing less than thrilled about this turn of events. It means that they can indulge in the therapeutic benefits of Swedish, deep-tissue, and prenatal massages that Theresa and Rob sometimes enhance with fragrant oils. But massage isn't the pair's only realm of expertise. They also restore health and balance with full-spectrum infrared sauna sessions and Japanese-inspired reiki energy work.
