Gloria Ross' life changed in 1984. She had dabbled in herbs and fasting regimens as means of detoxifying her body, but it was 28 years ago that she experienced her first colonic. This fateful cleansing treatment led to her to a career in colon hydrotherapy. She opened Eterna Holistic Therapies and now shares this drug-free practice with others, alongside a staff of fellow I-ACT-certified practitioners.

Q&A with Ciana Hilton-Farmer, Owner, Licensed Massage Practitioner, and Aromatherapist

Sometimes the little things make all the difference. Do you bake any supplementary services into your main services?
All massages have complimentary aromatherapy added, if desired, customized to [the client]. All massages are 60 minutes of actual bodywork (assuming client is about 5–10 minutes early), [and] have a neck and scalp massage included. Organic oils or crèmes are used. [The] use of an eye pillow for all clients (either a scented or unscented) during the supine massage position is offered to soothe the eyes.

What are some of your most popular services? What do you think clients love them so much?
Deep tissue, because it is focused on an area of the body where the client is experiencing tight muscles or pain. Hot-stone massage, because it brings the client to a more grounded and deeper level while relaxing them holistically. Pregnancy and postnatal massage, as it's vital to the mother's wellbeing both during and after pregnancy.

How did you get started in the beauty industry? Did you have an "ah-ha" moment in life?
I used to massage my mother as a little girl because I enjoyed it. She used to say that I should go into massage therapy when I grow up because I just seemed to 'know' where to focus my massage application. Ten years ago, I had that ah-ha moment when I gave her a massage again, realizing that my path was always right in front of me.

Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
Massage at Renton Massage Studio is all based on intentional touch. I massage the areas that show me, with palpation, where there is a stopped flow, or a knot; then I work on that area to release it. I always set an intention with each new client before each treatment, so that I am, in a sense, connected to a higher source, which assists me in giving every person, the most custom and beneficial massage.

Before becoming an expert in the practice of meditation, Ajayan Borys spent years studying under holy men and the living saint Mata Amritanandamayi of India. Since his return from traveling the globe, Borys has become a registered hypnotherapist, a reiki master, and a certified enneagram instructor. He has also written numerous articles and books—including his new book, Effortless Mind: Meditate with Ease—and hosts the Mind Matters radio show.

Borys doesn’t just use his knowledge to stay relaxed while pursuing such a busy schedule. He also treats clients at Himalayan Retreats International, where he helps dispel stress through meditation classes and restores feelings of well-being through reiki treatments. He performs heat-centered hypnotherapy to free clients from their inner judgments, anxieties, and tendency to transform into a BattleBot at times of stress. Borys also can use the ancient enneagram symbol to help clients understand their patterns of thinking and habits of emotion.

Bellevue Center for Health’s massive staff of chiropractic doctors, licensed acupuncturists, and male and female licensed massage practitioners offers an equally sprawling list of services. A waiting room equipped with leather couches and chairs greets guests before treatments such as acupuncture or naturopathy. The professionals search for natural cures to ailments such as fatigue and stress, and chiropractic care and massage therapy can iron out cramped muscles and aching backs, which are commonly caused by craning one’s head to see the massage therapist. Other services include allergy testing and orthotics.

Philip Faler is a naturopathic doctor because he likes people. He enjoys spending time with his patients, and he enjoys helping them feel their best with holistic approaches to health care. His approach has always been one of integrative or "whole-person" medicine. After spending six years as a family clinician, he shifted his focus to anti-aging therapies. Today, at Wholey Healing, Dr. Faler and his staff use hormone-replacement therapy, naturopathy, and bodywork techniques such as reiki to restore the spring back into patients' steps.

Q&A with Rebecca Lavin, Owner, Lmp

Sometimes the little things make all the difference. Do you bake any supplementary services into your main services?
Come and experience a truly relaxing and invitingly deep massage. I strive to make my bodywork as relaxing as it is therapeutic. I blend several different styles such as, Swedish relaxation, deep-therapeutic relaxation, myofascial release, neuromuscular treatment, and aromatherapy into my massage to provide you with a profoundly relaxing and effective massage experience.

Because of the intensity and uniqueness of my work, I usually see no more than three or four clients a day to make sure that I can give you the best massage experience possible. I also leave you plenty of time after your massage to relax on the table and dress in a leisurely manner.

Do you use any products or brands you're particularly proud of? What makes them uniquely effective?
DoTERRA CPTG-certified pure therapeutic-grade essential oils are 100% pure, natural, aromatic compounds carefully extracted from plants. They do not contain fillers or artificial ingredients that would dilute their active qualities, and they are free of contaminants such as pesticides or other chemical residues.

What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a client?
From a 90-years-young female client receiving her first massage as a gift from her daughter, "If heaven is anything like this, I am ready to go."

Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
A fair portion of MassageBeneficial's mission is to empower my clients with tools for safe, effective self-care between visits. Most people cannot afford a massage everyday or even every time they feel the need. For those wishing to learn more about natural approaches to wellness and self-care, I offer private consultations and education around which essential oils or blends may be the most effective in supporting a client's individual emotional or physical concerns.
