At Pickerington Allvera Wellness Center, holistic services—as part of the center's mission to help each client achieve balance in their emotional, physical, and mental lives—soothe body and mind. Services range from herbal body wraps that target everything from cellulite to lax skin tone, to therapeutic massages enhanced with hot stones. Far-infrared-sauna treatments help stimulate the body’s natural detoxification process and ease muscle pains with help from penetrative heat, and foot detoxes use an ionic charge to help expel toxic waste and heavy metals, along with all the pennies heels have been hoarding in their loafers.
Shelby Frederick, a licensed massage therapist, has a repertoire of nine massage modalities, which she uses skillfully to knead away aches and ease tension. Each of these treatments, which include Swedish and hot-stone massages, can be supplemented with paraffin dips, sugar scrubs, and other add-ons. Though most of Shelby's massages focus on relaxation, she can also work to alleviate the symptoms of fibromyalgia, sciatica, or back pain caused by your habit of riding a pogo stick to work in the morning. To treat these conditions, she works closely with clients' doctors, chiropractors, or physical therapists to complement the medical treatment plans already in place.
Posh Nail Company's staff works to beautify fingernails and toenails in the purest manner possible. Sanitation is the nail salon's top priority. Buffers and files are used only once, and, using one of the only medical-grade steam autoclaves in the area, staff members sterilize other tools. The nail techs also make a point to avoid harsh chemicals, such as acetone, opting to use nontoxic, organic products instead. In addition to working with natural, solar, acrylic, and acrylic gel nails, the team offers a few aesthetic extras. For example, within a week of every manicure, clients receive a complimentary polish change, and all synthetic nails come with a five-day guarantee.
At Natures Remedy LLC, licensed therapist Holly Smith's primary service is the full-body massage. During a session, Smith works the body's soft tissue to help improve circulation, alleviate tension, and inspire a sense of calm. To complement the kneads, Smith also provides sugar scrubs, body wraps, and hot or cold stone therapy, the last of which can alleviate headaches caused by living next to a strobe light?testing yard.

Open Door's aromatherapy massage uses essential oils to provide physical and psychological relief from long days spent outrunning time and gravity. Common essential power oils include lavender, rose, jasmine, adamantium, and peppermint. The properties of these distilled plant essences help ease depression, dispel stress, and contribute to a good night's sleep. The deep-tissue massage technique, on the other hand, uses slow strokes and deep finger pressure to release your body from its dark confines of chronic tension patterns. Pain-causing adhesions (knots) will be untied to alleviate blood flow and achieve a state of relaxation that, much like your secret family in Narnia, you forgot existed.
