Licensed massage therapist Michelle Dusek helps clients of all shapes and sizes overcome the stresses of modern life. Michelle believes that because all bodies are built slightly differently, massages need to be fluid. For this reason, she conforms to an infinite number of body shapes like somebody who makes coffins for snowflakes.
Michelle works equally hard to keep clients comfortable throughout each session. During deep-tissue, trigger-point, or stretching sessions, clients relax on a thickly padded massage bed surrounded with glowing lanterns and potted plants. A large window admits cascades of natural light, letting clients' half-open lids keep tabs on the outside world.
At Nadya Massages, licensed massage therapist Nadya Kielhorn has dedicated the past nine years to delivering bodies from stress. Well versed in multiple modalities of massage, she specializes in styles that assist with chronic pain, postural problems, and past injuries. Her practice shares space with other professionals dedicated to total-body health, including a chiropractor, an acupuncturist, a naturopathic physician, and a professional hugger, making the office a one-stop shop for all manner of medical and holistic therapies.
At Flow Natural Health Care, Dr. Marsha Hamilton mixes the healing principals of natural medicine with the sciences of modern medical treatments, including Arvigo techniques for Maya abdominal therapy. During each 60-minute Maya abdominal-therapy-massage treatment, a licensed practitioner gently rubs and applies pressure to abdominal and pelvic regions to improve circulatory flow and reduce internal constriction. Men benefit from pressure point therapy on bladders and surrounding nether regions, while gastrointestinal highways are noninvasively relieved of traffic bottlenecks. Through a series of repositioning tactics, women's ornery uteruses get equally assuaged, relieving pain related to monthly cycles, endometriosis, and menopausal-related perils.
Licensed massage therapist Genevieve Carey graduated from the East-West College of the Healing Arts, where she studied anatomy, pathology, and kinesiology. Today she draws on an array of modalities, such as Swedish and deep-tissue massage as she tailors her sessions to each client's needs. Genevieve is a member of the Associated Bodywork & Massage Professionals, and she also specializes in orthopedic and medical massage. The latter approach soothes injuries and chronic conditions such as hip, back, and neck problems, often accompanying conventional treatments for trauma, fibromyalgia, and lower back pain. Orthopedic massages aim to shorten recovery time while retraining tension patterns developed in daily life.
Tucked away inside the Warrior Room exercise facility, Jax Body Shop conducts repairs on the most important vehicle of all: the human body. The shop and its primary massage therapist, Jaclyn McNeill, meld Eastern and Western massage techniques when performing more than 15 modalities, from cranial sacral and lymphatic to trigger point and Thai. Adding convenience to the massage-going experience, the adjacent Little Warrior Room functions as a daycare so that parents don't have to find a babysitter or an extremely attentive border collie.
Amanda Ruley was inspired to help heal others through massage therapy by her mother, who struggled every day with multiple sclerosis and found respite in massage and acupuncture. At Ama Massage Therapy, the mission is simple: to soothe body, mind, and spirit with the therapeutic benefits of physical contact. Each massage is customized to the client?s individual needs, incorporating Swedish and deep-tissue techniques to boost circulation and sports bodywork to improve range of motion in muscles or remove stubborn foam fingers.
