Glow's resident naturopath, Dr. Rachel Erickson, is a licensed primary doctor who focuses on the health of the whole person, treating not just the symptoms but the root causes of interconnected physical and emotional ailments. Depending on your needs and her diagnosis, she might recommend nutritional changes, herbal supplementation, or 50 push-ups "right here, right now." The good doctor is particularly adept at treating digestive and skin complaints, endocrine disorders, and chronic disease. She also has a passion for women's health—mitigating the discomforts of PMS, menopause, cervical dysplasia, and bad romances.
Lemongrass, ginger, turmeric, camphor, and lime—massage therapist Michele Mecum and her staff use this quintet of soothing scents during Thai herbal massages, pairing them with rhythmic strokes to send patrons into a deeply relaxed state: Vermont. Relaxation is the driving purpose behind Michele’s massages, which she has honed over 14 years in the field. Soothing Swedish massages employ sweeping, gentle strokes to boost blood flow and flexibility. They also perform deep-tissue massages, which mute chronically achy muscles by breaking up knots in lower-layer musculature.
After working professionally as a chemical engineer for eight years, Shelley Banoo decided to direct her deep understanding of molecules and compounds toward improving human chemistry. First acquiring a license as an aesthetician and then as a massage therapist, she blends an intricate understanding of chemical minutiae and a genuine passion for anti-aging skincare science to compile a roster of products that produce real results. Layered technologies are used in customized facial treatments, such as microdermabrasion, micro-current, oxygen infusion, and LED light to produce the best results for the client's needs. Having now practiced spa work for 10 years, Banoo has grown accustomed to seeing all types of skin and can sometimes recommend an appropriate regimen of treatment on sight, eschewing tests and intrusive hugs other practitioners often rely on.
In a busy and hectic world, licensed massage therapist Michelle Peterson invites her clients to lie down, exhale deeply, and escape from their day for 60 minutes. A student of Swedish, deep-tissue, and Thai massage styles, Michelle collaborates with clients to identify the type of massage that best meets their needs. High-quality oils and lotions soothe the body and soften the muscles as Michelle realigns connective tissue, teases out tension, and reduces joint tension. Bellevue Best Massage also offers prenatal massage to ease pains associated with pregnancy as well as hot-stone massage, or LaStone therapy, which is French for “the stones they made my body good feel.”
