After Kim Russom graduated from the Capri College of Massage Therapy and received her state licensure and national certification in 2007, she began working professionally as a Licensed Massage Therapist (LMT), ultimately establishing her own practice inside the quaint brick walls of The Chiropractic Well Being Center in 2011. Now, she and her team focuses on problematic pain areas inside a pacific blue treatment room reminiscent of a soothing night sky. Kim and fellow LMT Sheela Hart specialize in deep-tissue massage, and often target specific ailments—such as headaches and chronic pain—with a customized mixture of deep pressure, trigger-point therapy, scalp massages, and stretches. They'll soon be joined by a third LMT, whose own expertise and extra pair of hands will help them heal as many clients as possible. In addition to delivering massages, the team also provides clients with helpful information on how to best treat muscles, including assigning specific stretching exercises and posture-creating routines that can enhance the power of a massage.
In 2000, licensed aesthetician Jennifer Friess graduated from the Douglas J. Aveda Institute, a beauty academy that served as her introduction to the wide world of spa treatments. She spent the next decade honing her skills in salons and spas, and her love for the profession grew in tandem with her profile. As Jennifer’s reputation continued to expand, it began to make sense for her to open her own studio space—a luxury that would allow her a measure of the freedom she was unable to enjoy while working for others.
Jennifer has achieved that freedom at Simply Bliss Spa and Esthetique, where she lavishes her regular clients with the kind of personal attention they deserve. Jennifer's spa services tend to focus on the skin, so waxing, facials, and Halloween mask removal are featured prominently on her spa’s menu. In addition to these treatments, she has been known to untie muscle knots with relaxation and deep-tissue massages.
Owner Janae Frantz founded her pedicure studio on the belief that “individual and community healing can be achieved simultaneously." In private pedicure rooms, she uses eco-friendly materials and vegan, organic SpaRitual products, which help make her environmental footprints smaller than a moccasin-clad hummingbird’s. She spreads these same conscientious business practices to people in her community by donating 10% of her spa’s proceeds to a different charity each month.
Massage and relaxation form the axis of Janae’s pedicures, and she folds her formal reflexology training into each session. Stringent sanitation practices are a hallmark of her treatments, with disposable foot files, nail files, and bowl liners bidding adieu after only one use.
The team at European Spa Boutique administers a thoughtful blend of naturally derived and technologically advanced treatments. A less-irritating, antiseptic wax made from soybeans is used for hair removal, and heated lava stones warm achy muscles during body treatments. For the extensive selection of facials, aestheticians call upon both methods of treatment: botanical extracts calm acned skin, chemical peels are harvested from chocolate and berries, and microcurrent and LED-light therapies are designed to increase collagen production and dissipate fine lines.
