Licensed massage therapist Trisha Clark opened Life Happenings Massage Therapy because she was unsatisfied with the revolving door feeling of larger massage practices. Her nearly two decades of experience has taught her that massages should be one-on-one, with the therapist devoting his or her full attention to each client and taking time to customize Swedish, deep tissue, and other modalities to suit their unique needs. Her one-room studio exemplifies this philosophy with a single massage table and a streamlined set-up designed expressly to focus on a single client. As a result, Trisha never gets distracted by long lines of clients or stressed dads who need help unknotting holiday lights.
In high school, a football injury ravaged Cary Holl's lower back, causing him severe pain that no treatment seemed able to remedy. He turned to a local chiropractor for help—and the relief was almost immediate. Inspired by the immense weight lifted off his weary shoulders, Cary attended Palmer College of Chiropractic and devoted himself to helping others reach similar epiphanies in chiropractic. Now known as Dr. Holl, Cary works with his staff to carry out services to treat a variety of maladies such as general back pain, whiplash, or tennis elbow—the number-one injury of professional curling.
Despite the breaking of clocks and the plotting of super villains, the world continues to turn, days and then years pass, and skin gathers wrinkles and begins to sag. At Lynn Klein Massage & Skincare, skilled aesthetician Janet (Lynn) Klein fights these signs of aging with cutting-edge facials that incorporate galvanic currents, Nu Skin products, and microdermabrasion, aiming to firm up slack skin and banish wrinkles left from frowning at disappointingly slow-growing house plants. Klein also draws on her 16 years of experience in the beauty and health industry while incorporating massage techniques to soothe away stress. At her side, massage therapist and certified personal trainer Shane Kinnison joins in kneading away aches, letting clients choose from modalities that range from Swedish to deep tissue. The spa also evicts excess wax and hidden telegraph messages from ears with candling.
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.
To further indulge clients, clay-based masks, regenerating tonics, peptide complexes, and skin-firming serums help refresh visages.
While Dr. Patricia Ryan, who is board certified in both Family Practice and Anti-aging medicine, was busy with her family practice, she began to notice a problem.

After discovering the root cause of her clients' ailments, Dr. Ryan and her team perform services such as anti-aging and hormone replacement, nutritional consultation and support, and IV therapy. Esthetic services include botox, microneedling, facials, peels, and microdermabrasions.
