Travis Garza became a fitness operative at the same time that he officially became an adult, commencing his personal-training career at age 18. As the now-48-year-old progressed to earn his NASM certification and direct multiple training centers, he was constantly mounting a counteroffensive to "fitness fraud" and common gym stressors. Eventually, he created his own workout plans to help to reshape his clients' physiques, taking on the title of "The Master of Body Transformation." His methods have since been featured on KOCO, FOX 25, and KTOK talk radio for their slimming, confidence-building results.
Whether he is leading a fat-loss boot camp or personal-training session, Travis strives to be a steadfast source of support to his students?he always responds to email, telephone, or post-its stuck to lobbed medicine balls. His programs take the holistic route to health by emphasizing nutrition in addition to exercise, providing consultations and take-home resources for clients.
Licensed massage therapist Debra Fazio adds a caring touch to each massage, facial, chemical peel, and body treatment she performs at BodyBliss Time Massage. As she deploys her shiatsu, hot-stone, and deep-tissue massage handiwork, patients relax in a treatment room that reverberates with the sounds of nature, such as birdsong, ocean waves, and conch shells doing vocal warm-ups. Facial clients kick back in similar relaxation as warm steam gently opens their pores to prepare for deep cleansing and exfoliation with the help of customized serums. Debra also mixes organic sugars, salts, and sands to forge body and foot scrubs that evoke the calming feeling of crab-walking along the beach.
The C in CJ's Therapeutic Touch is state-certified massage therapist Cecil E. Benson, who found a perfect business partner––and second consonant––in certified aesthetician Jeannie L. Benson. Together, the duo ushers in total-body relaxation and well-being by inviting clients to leave their electronics and air horns at the door before stepping into a sanctuary filled with soft music, soothing lighting, and treatment rooms lined with lush drapes. There, Cecil combines his astute knowledge of Swedish, deep-tissue, and hot-stone massages to deliver a wholly custom road to stress relief, and Jeannie enhances the exteriors of both men and women with services ranging from mineral-rich body wraps and full-body waxing to collagen-boosting face masks and glow-inducing sea-salt scrubs.
Although nutritional supplements and eating plans are the most common prescriptions at Inspire Health and Wellness, you won't get them from massage therapist Myra Williams. Instead, she doles out massage kneads, including long, flowing Swedish strokes that can help alleviate stress and increase blood flow.
At Dream Bodies/ Renewal Salon & Spa, a licensed aesthetician and certified massage therapist comprise a body-bettering duo that draws from more than 11 years of experience to create experiences that rejuvenate body and mind. To the pair, each treatment is highly individual and completely soothing, much like a marriage proposal. Such service is exemplified in facials, which aim to fix flaws yet impart solace when paired with add-ons such as a mini massage. A bit of luxury comes in the form of spa treatments, hot-towel sessions, and hot-stone massages, along with glasses of wine or homemade hot chocolate. The pair chooses to work with products that often include natural aromatic elements, such as a body wrap infused with aloe vera, herbs, and fruits, to provide clients with a healthy experience.
