Licensed massage therapist Nicole Crane of Therapeutic Resolutions specializes in myoskeletal alignment, which is a technique that helps align the skeletal system in order to relieve pain. Crane customizes each massage to her client's needs whether they include deep-tissue techniques or soothing Swedish strokes.
When she isn't paddling a dragon boat down the Willamette River, licensed massage therapist Debra Oden helps her clients navigate the turbulent waters of stress, chronic pain, and injury toward relaxation. She customizes a fresh approach for every patient—drawing from more than 10 years of bodywork experience—whether visitors simply wish to relax or have recently injured themselves attempting to crab-walk up an escalator. To supplement her mastery of Swedish strokes and specialty styles such as pregnancy massage, she holds certifications in shiatsu, deep-tissue, and neuromuscular therapies. This leads to highly flexible wellness plans—guests might stop in for a one-time appointment or schedule recurring sessions that steadily unwind knots of tension. Regardless of the condition she treats, however, Debra's ultimate goal remains the same: to improve her clients’ quality of life.

Aaron Meiggs grew up on a farm outside Independence, Oregon, where he had ample opportunity to work with his hands, an opportunity he loved. Then one day, a severe car accident left his lifestyle in ruin. On good days, Aaron was uncomfortable; the bad days were excruciating. It was only through a therapeutic process called Rolfing structural integration that Aaron's functionality was restored. Rolfing mitigates trauma in connective tissues to help align the body and ease chronic tension. Now Aaron has found a new use for his hands, healing others out of his own Rolfing studio.
The trio of owners behind Pamper Me Massage & Day Spa each contribute something unique to their business: Gary Lindquist is the financial backer, Daniel Lindquist is the promoter and go-to guy, and Eva Fleck is the face of the company. Their team of skilled specialists comes in three parts as well, much like a short fantasy novel adapted into an extremely long film series. Their nail tech pampers hands and feet with mani-pedis, acrylic nails, and hand-painted nail art. The aesthetician purifies pores with facials, body wraps, and sauna sessions, and tints exteriors with airbrush tanning and prune unwanted fuzz with wax. For full-on relaxation, the massage therapist plies bodies with techniques such as Swedish, deep tissue, trigger point, hot stone, and prenatal.
The team of trainers and aestheticians at Vitality Wellness Center helps guests restore beauty both inside and out with an array of services tailored to fitness, skincare, and mental well-being. Zumba, yoga, and belly-dance workouts take place in an airy studio with wooden floors, colorful murals, and a smoothie bar, allowing students to replenish lost electrolytes and continue campaigns of eradication against perfidious fruit. An on-site infrared sauna revs metabolisms, and body wraps purge toxins by enveloping limbs in mud, aloe vera, and seaweed. Vitality Wellness Center's aestheticians further pursue the center’s relaxing mission by sloughing dead skin cells from faces and dusty masquerade disguises during skin-pampering facials.
