During A Touch Above Massage's Aroma Touch massage, the massage therapist uses eight different fragrant oils. These oils work in tandem to relieve the body's tension. In the quiet, dimly lit treatment room, the therapist coaxes muscles into relaxing, not by chanting in whale song, but with the determined strokes of Swedish and deep-tissue massage.

People go to spas to forget about the outside world. How does your decor help create an atmosphere where visitors can unwind?
We are located inside Broadway Therapeutic. The decor is very clean and clinical ... comfortable leather chairs create a professional appearance. Low lighting creates a comfortable atmosphere before and after the massage.
What is one fun, unusual fact about your business?
We offer a wide variety of therapeutic massage treatments such as sports, deep-tissue, trigger-point, advanced stretching, and active- and passive-release techniques.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
We strive for the best in what we do. Whether you're a professional athlete or you just have an active lifestyle, don't live with the aches and pains life throws at us. Do something about it and start your path to a new healthy, pain-free lifestyle.

Energy healing sessions may be performed at her office or remotely via Skype.
Karynn MacKinnon has worked as a student athletic trainer for the Detroit Lions and both the US and Canadian national cycling teams. Now, after a 20-year stint managing special events, she's returned to her first love by becoming a licensed massage therapist and second-degree reiki practitioner. In the comfort of her own private studio, Karynn can unblock energy channels with a reiki healing session or temper chronic pain with deep-tissue pressure or the flowing stokes of Swedish bodywork.
At Serenity Wellness and Nails, the staff works under the philosophy that the state of one's exterior and interior are closely intertwined. So, they offer multiple types of manicures and pedicures to help their client's feel confident about their appearance, which, in turn, often has a positive effect on their general wellbeing. The staff is also very health conscious, believing that good health translates into a glowing exterior. Therefore, they specialize in health-related treatments such as diabetic foot care, use disposable liners in their pedicure tubs, and greet each customer with a preventative "gesundheit!"
At a very young age, there was only one thing Mikayla Guerin wanted to be when she grew up: a massage therapist. She started working toward her dream right after high school, when she moved to Portland, Oregon, to attend East West College of the Healing Arts. There, she learned that massage brings clients much more than tension relief. It can also aid in digestion, eliminate chronic pain, and strengthen the immune system enough to protect against kryptonite.
As MG Massage, she utilizes her learned skills with deep-tissue, hot-stone, and ashiatsu massages. She also offers upgrades that include soothing lavender lotion, heated eye pillows, and a hand and nail treatment that uses organic cream.
