Doctors of Chiropractic Trevor Wagner and Julie Owen-Wagner—West Omaha Chiropractic's husband-and-wife duo—team up with Doctor of Chiropractic Ron Evans to help patients realize their health and wellness goals. In addition, Gina Brollier, LMT works to relieve muscle stresses and improve circulatory response. Dr. Owen-Wagner began professionally practicing acupuncture after receiving her fellowship in 1998. Together, the staff of professionals at West Omaha Chiropractic, a 2013 Best of Omaha Winner's Circle recipient, are dedicated to wellness inside the center's spacious private rooms, customizing their treatments to help alleviate clients' pains from daily stresses, while also trying to improve structural balances.
The mastermind behind Hidden Tranquility is Lynnette Wilson, who is licensed to practice both massage therapy and skincare. Her massages whisk bodies and minds away from discomfort with Swedish, hot-stone, and prenatal bodywork techniques. She also consoles blemished skin with custom facials and peels, glosses nails with CND polish, and waxes lips, legs, and bowling alleys to render them sleek and smooth.
Ashley Lynn’s Massage offers a range of salon, tanning, and massage treatments to make clients feel relaxed and beautiful. Licensed therapists work out kinks with customized massages, which can include therapeutic add-ons such as hot stones, reflexology, and isolated active stretching that detangles muscle knots. The salon also keeps a full line of tanning equipment onsite, with four levels of UV beds and automated VersaSpa spray-tanning booths that ensure clients attain the desired shade of bronze without having to get in a Jacuzzi tub with a sack full of pennies.
At On The Spot Massage Therapy, five massage therapists work to pamper clients with 10 styles and an array of treatment add-ons. Stuffed-up sinuses can find relief as therapists utilize cold, handcrafted marble stones to gently ease away inflammation and pressure caused by migraine headaches. Massages range from traditional Swedish and pregnancy modalities to a Sticks & Stones massage that uses warm bamboo and smooth basalt rocks.
Brittany Harris always has her patients? backs. In a private treatment room, the licensed therapist treats clients to 60- and 90-minute massages that feature Swedish, deep-tissue, and hot-stone techniques, as well as chair massages to address the sadness caused by being picked last for jury duty.
Though amateur feline massage practitioners may knead with gusto, their lack of stroke variety and occasional clawing make them no match for the certified human massage therapists at Sol System. In their capable hands, a soothing 60-minute Swedish massage sends achy muscles to an ethereal plane of total body relaxation. The technique employs long, gliding strokes that follow the natural blood highways of the body, coaxing circulation back toward the heart. Sol System's friendly massage technicians act as gentle traffic cops, guiding the little red, oxygen-hauling trucks that perpetually tour your body. Enhanced circulation helps stimulate your whole body, making everyday tasks less taxing and increasing your chances of hitting the lotto. Other massage patterns used in the Swedish technique include circular motion, pressure, firm kneading, tapping, range-of-motion manipulation, and shadow puppets. The therapy reduces pain and joint stiffness and can improve function in people suffering from osteoarthritis.
