The vehicular gurus at Hookset Automotive keep road trips and morning commutes safe and devoid of breakdowns with maintenance and repair services for mechanical chariots. Alongside oil changes and tire rotations, the team's service center supplies 12-month or 12,000-mile warranties on all its work, including brake fixes, electrical overhauls, transmission flushes, and heating- and AC-system repairs. Engine-focused services such as tune-ups flip the hood to scope out spark plugs and fluid levels, and a carbon clean works to improve gas mileage without rigging a sail mast onto the roof.

As the name suggests, the doctors and aestheticians at Skin Body Soul nurture a balance between outer beauty and inner peace. Aiming to restore the body's nutrients while drawing out its toxins, treatments such as Herbalogica body wraps use niacin and soy oil to stimulate collagen production and firm up skin. Nonsurgical lipo treatments and infrared sauna sessions similarly aim to contour the body through the use of ultrasound and dry infrared heat, respectively.
Several of the spa's other offerings, including microcurrent treatments, glycolic peels, and Norvell sunless tanning, restore a youthful glow to skin. But the staff's expertise doesn't stop at the service menu. They keep a blog updated with recipes, nutrition tips, and YouTube videos of the latest dance craze the Protein Shake.
At Common Ground Wellness Center's two locations, diverse patrons seek health through holistic body treatments including therapeutic massage and acupuncture, and soak up relaxation in a bathhouse with an outdoor whirlpool and cedar sauna. The center's co-op location invites visitors of all genders to soak in the facility's swimsuit-optional spa throughout open sessions or during hours designated for male, female, or trans and genderqueer persons. Visitors who regularly use alternative transportation—including their bike, feet, or polar bear—can claim a complimentary soak or sauna on their 11th trip. An eclectic roster of 30 bodywork practitioners practices at both the co-op and 106 year-old Flanders House venues, healing clients' minds and bodies with hands-on massage and chiropractic therapies alongside naturopathic guidance and emotional counseling.
Emily Taylor grew up giving back rubs to tense family members. Her penchant for easing pain blossomed into a career after she earned a degree from East West College and obtained a massage-therapy license. In a treatment room, Emily puts that knowledge to use as she examines posture to target pain at its source. She employs slow, continuous, and flowing strokes during Swedish sessions and opts for firmer pressure while using deep-tissue techniques. Emily is also certified in medical massage, which she uses to heal injuries after visits to the National Museum of Ball Bearings and Stairs.
At City Of Roses Hypnosis, Kimball Ralphs CHt, certified by the National Guild of Hypnotherapists and a member of the Oregon Hypnotherapy Association, has the transformative power of suggestion on his side. Before hypnosis sessions take place, the certified hypnotherapist takes time to answer any questions his patients might have. Once patients feel comfortable, he coaxes them into a relaxing, hypnotic state before intoning a series of positive suggestions during their sessions, throughout which patients retain a sense of control. Ideally, the suggestions burrow into the subconscious mind, where they reinforce patients’ personal goals—which could include losing weight, quitting smoking, curbing addictive habits, or landing a job as the manager of a boy band.
