Led by chiropractors Dr. Charles R. Lane and Dr. Cameron Laboret, Central Health and Wellness works to assist patients in shedding stress, relieving tension, and healing the spine. Upon arrival at Central Health and Wellness, skeletal sufferers will receive an in-depth consultation addressing their present ailments, whether those be deeply felt chronic aches or structural issues from sleeping in kitchen cabinets (a $90 value). During the exam (a $120 value) a spinal specialist will locate the source of pain or discomfort using x-rays for detailed body blueprints (a $90 value). After a thorough review, the posterior professional determines the appropriate course of action before calming interior tensions with a 30-minute massage (a $35 value), a spinal adjustment (a $60 value), and soothing knock-knock jokes.
After practicing for 600 hours to earn her massage therapist's license, Monique Zamora wasted no time in starting her own massage business, Virtú 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.

At A Heavenly Body Massage, licensed massage therapist Cherie Rhodes Robinson and her team pamper patrons with massage and other whole-body therapies designed to leave them feeling healthy, strong, and stress-free. Massage-therapy services include everything from deep-tissue and prenatal styles to a hydro-face-toning massage that employs steamy hot towels to clean the skin and a face massage to reverse stress caused by daily challenges to a duel. Herbal body wraps boast a wide range of benefits for clients in search of cellulite reduction, pain relief, or general relaxation, and all treatments can get added doses of relaxation through service add-ons such as aromatherapy or soothing foot soaks.
Though she's always up for a pampering session, where licensed massage therapist Christine Smith really excels is in therapeutic massages designed to correct a nagging problem. Sometimes, that problem is a functional imbalance that's causing chronic pain; other times it might be an issue with balance and stability or range of motion. She particularly prides herself on the relief she's brought to her senior-citizen patients, many of whom have tried a retinue of other techniques to fix their problems before discovering the power of her treatments. From a tranquil, private room, Christine aims to ease pain and tension in muscles and joints through deep tissue, Swedish, and reflexology techniques.
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.
