James Hopgood knows that not everybody requires the same type of massage. That’s why the licensed massage therapist draws upon myriad modalities—from slower Swedish strokes to intensive trigger-point release—to craft custom sessions at Kneading Ways Massage. Inside his space at Nature's Haven Wellness Center & Spa, James diligently relieves his clients of chronic pain and anxiety, while simultaneously strengthening their immune systems and improving circulation. He even conducts sports massages, which ready athletes of all ages for the big game or help baseball players recover from particularly strenuous bunts.
Sun seekers have options when they walk through the doors at Star Tans. Their skin gets steeped in bronzer shades in the spray tanning booth, while the tanning solution from the airbrush imparts a tan-colored mist to pale skin. Both of these work without light to give skin a sun-kissed glow without the risks involved with sunbathing outdoors, such as hornets building a nest under your knees. The lamps in the UV bed mimic the sun rays, which coax melanin toward the skin surface for a natural glow.

With a menu of massage modalities and cupping techniques, clients have many options to choose from, such as the Soul massage, which incorporates reiki into soothing strokes and carefully applied pressure. To ensure clients also feel better on the outside, the staff performs aesthetic services including facials and nail services.
