Exercise therapy, therapeutic massages, and spinal adjustments are a few of the techniques the trio of chiropractors at Family Practice of Chiropractic perform to help patients achieve pain-free living. They blend these drug-free services into customized treatments designed to balance the body and vanquish pain without the use of medication or surgery. In addition to these direct techniques, the team also doles out advice on nutrition and herbal supplements.
Even when it starts to get chilly during the winter months, the treatment rooms at Professional Massage Therapy keep bodies warm and relaxed through heated tables, hot towels, and hot stones. Licensed massage therapist Amanda Kemmerlin administers Swedish massages, deep-tissue treatments, prenatal massages, and foot-reflexology work.
Sonya Heitmuller views spa services through a holistic lens. As a licensed aesthetician and owner of Simply Skin, she opts for all-natural skincare products during spa services such as microdermabrasions, facials, eyebrow waxing, and massage therapy. She also offers ear-candling treatments that can remove earwax and body-sugaring treatments that evict unwanted hair and house guests from skin's dermal cellars. Hand-poured candles and cosmetics from Jane Iredale line the spa’s shelves to render the atmosphere fully inviting.
Licensed massage therapist Amanda Kemmerlin has been uncoiling muscles and soothing aches for a decade. Having worked with some of the top educators in the Columbia-Lexington area, Amanda puts her wisdom to work during 30-, 60-, and 90-minute sessions at 14 Mile Massage. She adjusts to each client's needs by offering several modalities, including Swedish, deep tissue, and prenatal—a safe and relaxing massage for moms-in-the-making delivered during the second or third trimester.
Stacie's airbrush-tanning sessions are just one of the many beauty and spa services provided by Retreat Salon and Day Spa. The salon is helmed by Ched Spangler, a skilled colorist and stylist who has worked with Farouk Systems to expand its internationally renowned haircare business.
Locally, his custom-designed salon and spa employs skilled stylists who revamp 'dos with haircuts, full and partial color, and intensive deep-conditioning treatments. Clients can get pampered from top to toe with pedicures that include foot soaks, moisturizing masks, and a coat of vibrant OPI nail polish. Swedish massages, chemical peels, microdermabrasions, and men's facials round out the list of indulgent spa services.
Certified Rolfer Kimberly Richey eases bodies into balance during 75-minute Rolfing sessions. As opposed to massage therapists, who drive tension from muscles, or chiropractors, who realign spines by advising patients to sleep on a ruler, Richey’s practice focuses on the fascia, the soft tissue that surrounds muscles and connects organs to one another. Direct pressure coupled with guided movements work to release tightness within connective tissues, restoring proper movement to the body as a whole. Continued Rolfing sessions can result in improved posture and mobility, reduced pain and stiffness, and increased circulation.
