When Jen Hibbard opened Sant? Massage in 2011, she saw it almost as a wellness studio?a place where clients could come to improve their overall health, not just as a place where massage was a luxury. The therapist, who often blogs about improving her own health, reduces chronic pain and tension with everything from deep-tissue and therapeutic massages to hot-stone and prenatal massages.
Jen learned her techniques at Heritage College, where she obtained an associate's degree in therapeutic massage and occupational studies. Jen emerged from the 1,200-hour state-accredited program with knowledge in a number of fields, including anatomy and physiology, Chinese medicine, and school-mascot massages.
John Moore has been a nationally certified massage therapist since 2003, and now lends his healing touch to the staff at Sunset Hills Massage. There he's found a home for his well-rounded approach to wellness, which uses multiple massage techniques and stretches tailored to each client's unique needs. In the comfort of his private studio, John relieves stubborn aches and pains with precise bodywork, promoting relaxation with flowing Swedish strokes or busting serious muscle aches with trigger point therapy or firm deep-tissue pressure.
The licensed massage therapists at Soul Shine Spa & Wellness mend muscles with flowing Swedish strokes, reflexology, and Thai stretch bodywork. Clients can also request indulgent add-ons such as hot stones and lavender aromatherapy. The environmentally-conscious spa uses petroleum-free eco-fin products and biodegradable plastics.
Therapeutic Solutions and Pain Management's staff comprises state and nationally certified massage therapists.
