For almost 10 years, licensed massage therapist Faith Yocom has used bodywork to relieve her clients' physical and mental pain. She's an expert at treating stress and helping manage pain, which she sees as deeply interrelated processes. One of her personal philosophies is "the body speaks the mind"—a principle that stems from her own experience practicing yoga, meditating, and receiving massages.
As such, her massages tend to be both relaxing and therapeutic. By mixing elements from various types of massage, she's better able to customize her treatments to target the causes of each individual's issues, alleviate anxiety, and help clients fill out their massage-technique bingo card.
Love Thyself Day Spa provides ample opportunities to care for one's health with massage services, skin care treatments, colon hydrotherapy and eastern therapies. The spa's owner strives to help others to rejuvenate their minds, bodies, and spirits through holistic care. Today, she guides her staff members as they administer treatments in one of six private rooms that offer a peaceful cloud-like environment enhanced by Far East decor and actual clouds that managed to skulk into the spa.
After practicing for 600 hours to earn her massage therapist's license, Monique Zamora wasted no time in starting her own massage business, Virt? Spa. She specializes in five distinct modalities, but might incorporate any or all of them into a single treatment, depending on a client's needs. She can relieve simple tension with the long, gentle surface strokes of Swedish massage, or delve deeper into the tissues to target trigger points?hyper-irritable spots associated with knots, taut bands of muscle fibers, and accidentally swallowed water pistols.
