Natural techniques and products are the only things on the menu at Artisan Healing. Led by a talented and passionate team of massage therapists, Artisan Healing focuses its energies on healing through holistic massage, reiki, and skincare. The custom oils, lotions, and scrubs that the Artisan Healing team blends together contain only natural ingredients, such as shea butter, jojoba and essential oils. Mother Nature also provides the decor—earth tones shade two massage rooms, one with a shower, and natural sunlight illuminates the studio.
After injuring himself during a high-school soccer game, Shawn Pomeroy couldn't shake an aching head and neck. He eventually saw a chiropractor to treat the pain, and found that it subsided after regular adjustments. Now a chiropractor himself, Dr. Pomeroy hasn’t lacked for loyalty: he still sees the same doctor for his weekly appointment. His nearly 15 years of experience have only strengthened his belief in the power of spinal science, which he practices at two welcoming offices.
Pomeroy Chiropractic Wellness approaches back, neck, and head ailments from both preventive and rehabilitative angles. The staff scout for subluxations—misaligned bones putting pressure on nerves—with exams and x-rays, soothe muscular tension with massage, and educate patients on proper spinal care by demonstrating how to floss between vertebral disks. As for adjustments, Dr. Pomeroy can utilize his hands or a chiropractic instrument to try to correct backbone imbalances. His focus on family care means that both parents and children can benefit from his personalized, gentle treatments.
The therapists and aestheticians at Pure Escape Skin Care take a diversified approach to epidermal wellness, adjusting their techniques to meet the needs of each client. They specialize in pharmaceutical-grade anti-aging treatments but also perform skin treatments that use organic products from glo therapeutics and Éminence. In private treatment rooms, aestheticians soften and exfoliate faces using chocolate, blueberry, mud, acai, or lime, as well as slough off dead skin with chemical exfoliation treatments and microdermabrasion. They also oust lymphatic-system toxins and tone specific areas using the doctor-designed SmoothSculpt, which bombards surfaces with alternating pressure and suction, like a pogo champion vacuuming his apartment.
Located in the center of the Siena Plaza, All Body Spa welcomes clients into its restful confines so they can enjoy a range of beauty services. Aching backs and shoulders can unwind with a relaxing hot-stone massage, while skin soaks in vitamin C or pore-cleansing enzymes during customized facials. Aestheticians carefully wax away hair from the arms, legs, and bikini area, fill in sparse brows or lashes with tinting, and diminish fine lines and damage from sitting too close to backyard tire fires with microdermabrasion treatments.
The therapists at Great Escape Therapeutic Massage, LLC work to relieve discomfort from muscular pain, anxiety disorders, and sports injuries. The team specializes in five relaxation modalities, including deep-tissue massage, which delves deep into the layers of muscle tissue, and prenatal massage, which helps relieve muscular discomfort in mothers-to-be. The staff will also show new parents how to impart massage to their newborn child, which helps improve the symptoms of gas and constipation, increases sensory awareness, and fosters sleep so that the baby doesn’t stay up for late-night Law & Order marathons.
Slate Creek Center doesn't limit its attention to surface beauty. Although a team of aestheticians can add a smoldering flair to glances with pharmaceutical-grade Novalash extensions, or smooth skin with facials and scrubs, the rest of the staff delves much deeper. In keeping with Slate Creek Center's mission to instill a holistic sense of well-being, trainers condition muscles and melt away fat with fitness classes. Massage therapists wait in the wings to mollify overworked tendons. Traditional therapists are even available to focus on the mind, helping patrons talk through their worries or by employing techniques such as hypnosis.
The space itself further engenders a sense of whole-body calm. A gentle soundtrack of classical music and the scents of aromatherapy emanate throughout. An infrared sauna warms the body from its core out, relieving pain and melting undigested snow-cones. An on-site boutique lets outgoing guests carry this peace home with hand-picked cosmeceutical products by makers such as Eminence and Jane Iredale.
After pursuing several medical approaches, receiving chiropractic care was the only solution that worked for Dr. Greg Holmberg, a former young athlete who once faced the possibility that he'd never again compete because of chronic aches and numbness. He now aims to help others in the same fashion, helming a team of trained staffers to aid him in alleviating client problems without prescription drugs, surgery, or needles.
When he's not promoting health during community lectures, Dr. Holmberg treats client maladies such as arthritis, back tenderness, and headaches with 10 chiropractic adjustment techniques, and he incites weight loss with nutritional counseling. He also plucks from a bouquet of stress-slaying massage modalities including deep tissue and hot stone, working to help muscles to reestablish healthful habits and unknot themselves from swallowed Scrabble pieces.
