Euphoria Nails & Spa's technicians maintain immaculate service stations, creating a welcoming yet pervasively clean environment.

While protecting the beauty of their clients, Spa Willamina also protects their skin and the environment by using pure, plant-based, natural products. Willow Light, the owner, puts her 20 years of healing experience to work in the spa, which features towering plants, an exposed-brick fireplace, and hardwood floors that can be pried up and thrown into the fireplace if necessary. Willow?s staff is a small army of aestheticians and massage therapists who have skills as diverse as certified diet counseling and herbalism. Inside various tranquil spaces?including a shower room, foot-soaking room, and nap room?they work to exfoliate body surfaces, knead out tension, and remove unwanted hair with soft strip and Cirepil Blue hard wax.
Licensed massage therapist Sarah Kittleson wrings every drop of tension from achy muscles, boosting relaxation and decreasing anxiety with a number of massage modalities tailored to each client. Guests can choose from Sarah’s repertoire of one-hour strategic massages, including Swedish and deep-tissue options, where her deft hands reverse the ravages caused by stress, strain, and brick-filled backpacks atop a comfortable heated table. Structural Relief Therapy (SRT) helps assuage pain, correct posture, and restore joint function by tapping into the neurological system, restoring faulty landline connections between the brain and its muscle minions. A biodynamic massage directs deep-tissue and cranial manipulation toward muscles and fascia for a meditative experience that spreads stress release throughout the fluid and spatial systems of the body. Craniosacral Therapy (CST) gently probes the membranes and fluids surrounding the spine and skull, kick-starting the central nervous system and killing headaches and chronic pain with kindness. Prenatal massage addresses the pain of towing a growing fetal kickboxer with an endorphin-releasing massage that relieves the back, neck, abs, and shoulders of pickle-hoarding life givers.
Michele Stokes is in constant pursuit of health and wellness. This lifelong interest has taken her down many paths: she studied dance at the University of Oregon; taught Pilates and yoga exercise classes; and worked as both an aesthetician and massage therapist. As the owner of Gyre Bodyworks, she combines these skills, providing her clients with natural facials, brow waxes, and therapeutic yoga and Pilates sessions along with massage therapy services. Tailoring each massage to meet the individual?s needs, she draws from a variety of modalities such as deep tissue, trigger point, and Swedish, never forgetting to smile benevolently at overly stressed muscles.
