Owners Heather Harris and Corey Kolln believe in their practice’s powerful benefits, so much so that they encourage regular visits from customers through a membership program that offers deep discounts. Amid their office’s tranquil environment, they administer signature massages that focus on each client's specific problem areas, incorporating hot stones, aromatherapy, and steamed towels for maximum tension and stress relief. As an extra defense against muscle soreness, they can place herbal analgesic patches on muscles, helping to ease pain for up to two days while increasing the likelihood that family members will ask if you've been rolling around in the herb garden again.
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.
The sizeable but close-knit staff of Artistik Edge Salon has served clients since 1999. With professional products by brands such as Redken and Wella, colorists render complete color treatments, highlights, lowlights, and gray coverage for men, women, and stressed-out toddlers. The hairstylists can also insert hair extensions, adding luxurious length to strands. Artistik Edge Salon also provides nail services, including long-lasting gel-polish applications, and aesthetic services such as facials and waxing.
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.
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. Mary Boyd found her passion for therapy working in behavioral management with at-risk youth. Though these two followed different paths to discover massage, their mission is the same: 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.
