After a major car accident left her stiff and sore, licensed occupational therapist Jody Turner turned to massage therapy to restore her range of motion. The techniques not only worked, but they inspired Jody to pursue massage-therapy studies and eventually open her own studio, Noblesville Massage Therapy. Today, she helps liberate others from aches and pain using deep-tissue, trigger-point, and myofascial-release techniques.
After developing 2,100 barren square feet into a fully custom, comfort-minded space, Dream Weaver Salon & Day Spa opened its doors on August 15, 1999, with a small staff of five pulchritude purveyors. Later expanding to 3,500 square feet and broadening its staff to nine stylists, three nail technicians, three massage therapists, three aestheticians, and three disoriented musketeers, Dream Weaver blossomed into the vast full-service salon and spa flower it is today. A dramatic rounded arch separates the waiting area from the rest of the space, where the certified staff perform a range of beautifying services, including coif coloring, haircuts, mani-pedis, facials, and anxiety-slaying massages.
Heather Hasty defines the word anature as meaning from the earth, a concept she tries to uphold in each of her massage and bodywork services. The owner and head therapist at Anature Massage & Wellness, which is located inside Sola Salon, incorporates organic creams and lotions into each of her treatments, which focus on natural and alternative methods of pain relief such as stretching, reflexology, and distracting the pained muscles with a muscle-size Rubik's cube. After more than 700 credit hours, Heather earned her massage-therapy certification in 1995, but she didn’t stop there. Instead, she continues to upgrade her repertoire with new massage techniques including trigger point, Asian reflexology, and Pfrimmer Deep Muscle Therapy, which concentrates on restoring circulation to deep muscles with blocked blood or lymphatic flow.
Jemea Kim Deeter believes in the power of touch to facilitate inner and outer healing. The licensed massage therapist has witnessed firsthand massage's benefits—most notably while pregnant with her two sons—and today she spreads the power of massage with her own practice. At Mea Massage Therapy, she performs Swedish and deep-tissue massages for anybody struggling with muscle tension, pain, or lingering injury. She also specializes in prenatal massage to help expecting mothers deal with the physical demands of pregnancy. Jemea also confers her knowledge to new parents during private Baby's First Massage lessons, which cover safe massage techniques to calm newborns or stoke precociousness in calculus or horticulture.
After graduating from Iowa’s Body Wisdom Massage Therapy School, Carey Gaw further honed her kneading skills at Indianapolis spas and in-home appointments. These days, however, the licensed massage therapist calls the shots at Escape Massage Therapy LLC, her very own studio housed inside the Fall Creek Vision Center. Of course, Carey’s customers are really the ones in charge, alerting her to whatever aches they’re experiencing, from lower-back pain to aches caused by pregnancy. With that info, Carey conducts 30-to 120-minute massages that incorporate modalities such as gentle Swedish strokes, deep-tissue techniques, or soothing hot stones.
A spacious oasis of calm awaits you at Woodhouse Day Spa. Slough off your outermost facial layer like a snake shedding last year's tired fashions with a 50-minute organic-peel facial. The invigorating treatment includes three rounds of gentle exfoliation, removing dull dermis to uncover natural radiance and make your skin more receptive to moisturizers and praise on public transportation. If pelt polishing isn't your cup of sports drink, opt for a 50-minute soothing facial with a moisturizing mask that restores balance and protects against free radical damage. This option also includes an eyebrow wax treatment. If your face is fine but your back is in agony, put an end to its screaming with an 80-minute Swedish massage, a full-body experience that utilizes long, flowing strokes to reduce muscular tension and gently encourage apathetic circulation into caring once more.
