For 20 years, Doctor of Chiropractic Catherine Gray has taken a whole-body approach to alleviating pain and helping each client find their physical potential. She leads a handpicked team of holistic health experts, including Doctor of Chiropractic Theresa Burns, who specializes in caring for athletes and children; personal trainer and medical exercise specialist Chris Chronister; and two licensed massage therapists. The doctor showcases her dedication to healing bodies in every facet of her career. In addition to owning and operating MorningStar Chiropractic, she runs a consulting company that helps students transition from chiropractic school to private practice, and is a quarter-time faculty member at Northwestern Health Sciences University. Jeff Zachman, L.Ac has also recently joined the team.
The team takes a multifaceted approach to chiropractic care, addressing damaging subluxations and their physical consequences with methods ranging from cervical traction to ultrasound physiotherapy. They also offer soothing reiki sessions to balance chakras impacted by stress or metaphorical meteors.
The beauty team at Villager Salon and Spa pampers and primps clients in a combined spa and salon setting. On the salon side of the facility, a small band of experienced hair stylists with years of experience bestows hair sculptures with a parade of high-end hair and beauty products by Paul Mitchell, Coppola, and Kenra. Villager's equally tight-knit spa technicians carry out their own collection of services, each with a diverse skill set that encompasses trigger-point massage techniques, waxing, and the use of hot stones for massages and extreme juggling.
The seven cosmetologists at JB Cavour Salon Spa wield more than a century's combined experience in the beauty business, as well as an arsenal of botanical Aveda products. Now in its second generation of family ownership, the recently renovated sanctuary keeps a healthy stream of ?ahhs? flowing out the big bay window with luxurious massage, skincare, and hair services.
The team of therapists at Tiny Apples Massage Therapy soothes tense muscles with modalities such as Swedish, pregnancy, sports, and therapeutic massage. These techniques can ease injured muscles, improve range of motion, and call lazy blood cells to action. During hot-stone massages, massage therapists use smooth stones to loosen curmudgeonly knots. They also use a Japanese technique known as reiki, which targets the body's life force energy through the laying on of hands. They can also enhance these bodywork techniques with aromatherapy and detoxifying foot soaks. The former adds invigorating scents to the session, and the latter expels impurities by putting each sullied foot through a trial by ordeal.
Ever since graduating from the massage therapy program at the Minnesota School of Business, Sherri Anderson has used her kneading know-how to relax countless achy muscles. Versed in myriad modalities, including Swedish, sports, and hot-stone massage, the certified massage therapist incorporates whatever techniques best treat each client's needs. Besides decreasing soreness, her massages help lower blood pressure, increase posture, and improve range of motion more effectively than transplanting your brain into Stretch Armstrong. Sherri works as part of The Circle of Healing Arts Co-op, a wellness cooperative whose other services run the gamut from life coaching to reiki.
Posh22 Salon and Spa may be owned by two master stylists, but this place is about much more than hair. That's largely because these stylists surround themselves with aestheticians and massage therapists who are also masters in their respective fields.
One trait the whole team shares is a passion for beauty, whether they're highlighting hair or brightening complexions with facials. Many of the treatments here go above and beyond what you might expect; aside from the traditional massage modalities, for example, there's a unique variety for expectant mothers that simulates the natural motions of labor.
