Absolute Wholeness Massage and Wellness owes its extensive repertoire of therapeutic techniques to the diverse backgrounds of its massage therapists. While the therapists might differ in their specializations, which include everything from sports massage to immune-boosting lymphatic-drainage techniques, the entire staff shares a common philosophy: to treat every client as a whole person with his or her own unique needs. To that end, the therapists forgo the one-massage-fits-all template and strive to customize every treatment, from relaxing Swedish massage to focused deep-tissue work to soothing hot-stone massage, to the client?s needs. Sometimes that means helping a client find solace from stress caused by a high-powered work schedule, or physical pain from the marble embedded in the seat of their office chair. This dedication has earned Absolute Wholeness Massage and Wellness reader's choice awards for their services from Style-El Dorado County Foothills magazine three-years running.

Since it opened for play in 1963, Camino Heights Golf Course has occupied the same 30-acre patch of land 3,000 feet above sea level. This elevated perch places the nine holes below the snows of nearby Apple Mountain but above the fog line, so golfers can play year-round without the fear of blind tee shots into a foggy abyss or abominable snowmen stealing their golf balls. Prior to embarking on the forest-shrouded fairways, players can limber up on the practice putting green or the hitting net.
Course at a Glance: * 9-hole, par 31 course * Total length of 1,932 yards from the back tees * Course rating of 60 from the back tees * Course slope of 99 from the back tees * Two sets of tees per hole
