Michelle is a licensed massage therapist, licensed holistic practitioner, personal trainer, and graduate of the school of ministry. Michelle, the woman behind Strong Hands Massage Therapy, truly does have strong hands: they’re the same hands she used block, jab, and swing her way to a fourth-degree black belt in karate. At her Ramsey massage studio, however, she uses her strength for healing rather than combat.
Before starting any massage, Michelle consults with each client to determine their individual needs and goals. Then she soothes muscles and connective tissues with custom-tailored kneads and gliding strokes. The treatments can relieve not only pain and tension, but issues such as high blood pressure, depression, and anxiety caused by listening to the Jeopardy! theme song on repeat too many times. Clients can also opt for pampering details such as hot stones or aromatherapy.
Each Body By Laser clinic pairs cold-laser technology with holistic health practices to help patients lose inches and keep them off. The treatment gets its magic from cold lipolasers, which are designed to gently shrink fat cells by dislodging their contents so that they can be fully discarded through the body's natural metabolic process and series of tiny secondhand stores. Each one-hour treatment series wraps up with a consultation on diet and exercise, along with a quick session atop a whole-body-vibration platform engineered to burn even more calories.
Like art-house films and fish-flavored popsicles, these procedures are not intended for everyone; females who are pregnant or nursing should not undertake the treatment, nor should patients with active forms of cancer. Should any complications be discovered during Body By Laser's initial screening, the company will issue a refund.
The certified stylists at Lashful frame eyes with mink lashes to achieve looks ranging from elegant to seductive. Their uncanny attention to detail comes in handy during extension applications, when they meticulously attach each artificial lash to a real one to achieve the most natural look possible. Sensitive eyes need not wince in fear, as the adhesive material with which they apply lashes is specially formulated to not perturb the eye with harsh irritants or teasing optical illusions. The stylists also dip natural lashes in a semipermanent tint that—much like the extensions—gives eyes the glamorous look of freshly applied mascara.
