Physical. Social. Intellectual. Recreational. Individual. Financial. Vocational. These are the seven elements of The Seven Club Health & Wellness Spa, a health and wellness spa dedicated to balanced living. The staff, which includes aestheticians, massage therapists, a nutritionist, and a nail technician, helps its clients achieve this balance through services that address these areas, such as massage, fitness training, and life coaching.
Licensed massage therapist; certified personal trainer; yoga teacher. Dallin S. Larsen wears more hats than a milliner who wants to keep his hands free. He's trained all over the world, from the Renaissance College of Massage in Utah to the Yoga Vidya Gurukul ashram in India. And though this training casts a wide net, Dallin's mission can be distilled into a single goal: to help make people happy. He achieves this through a menu of services that address both the mind and the body. He can massage away aches and pains, guide clients on their path to weight loss, or even help calm minds with private yoga classes in a client's own home.
Whispering Waters takes a cue from the wooded trails just minutes from its enclave. Its second-story oasis draws on time-tested techniques of natural healing throughout its treatments, though they combine these holistic practices with modern advances in skincare and beauty. For instance, their aromastone therapy treatment pampers backs with exfoliation and a warm river-stone massage and also incorporates ancient meridian balancing techniques. Their facial treatments rely on NouVara HD10’s natural skincare system, whose 10 active ingredients oxygenate faces and promote younger-looking skin without harsh chemicals or individual fake IDs for each skin cell.
Massage therapist Amy Middleton blends Eastern and Western modalities to help ease clients' tension while discovering, and eliminating, their underlying sources of pain. Drawing from her education in holistic healing and energy work at the Renaissance School of Therapeutic Massage, she applies precise pressure during shiatsu massages and reflexology treatments, and roots out tension and pain with Swedish and deep-tissue techniques. During custom massage sessions, she uses essential oils for aromatherapy benefits and will play soothing music—or the client's school fight song—for optimum relaxation.
In the human body, issues such as pain and limited mobility rarely stem from a single cause. That's why the Padgen Institute fused four massage styles into a signature method, instead of sticking to one approach. More than 20 years of practice provide the basis for the Padgen Method, which calls on both elements of structural integration to align the joints and lengthen fascia and craniosacral therapy to jump-start the body's own healing mechanisms. At the same time, Swedish and Esalen massage techniques ease tension lurking just beneath the surface. At his eponymous Padgen Institute of Healing Arts, Steven personally instructs each therapist in the ways of his signature technique to ensure that he or she can ease pain and help realign energy pathways.
As a mother of two children and a licensed massage therapist, Rebecca Overson believes that "pregnancy can be enjoyed, not just endured." While pregnant with her first child, Rebecca had a hard time finding a bodywork specialist with the skill, sensitivity, and expertise required to meet her changing body's needs. It was this struggle that inspired her to open Salt Lake Prenatal Massage, a place that would provide expert support to other women during and after pregnancy.
Holding certifications in prenatal and postpartum massage, as well as a BA in spiritual psychology, Rebecca uses her personal and professional know-how to guide a staff of other licensed therapists and a pregnancy fitness specialist.
