For licensed massage therapist Victoria Hanhart of Hanhart Advanced Medical Massage, massages are more than just a luxurious way to relax. They can also help manage pain from injuries or medical issues, such as cancer.
Although she specializes in more than eight modalities, Victoria doesn't stick to a template. Instead, she borrows elements from each of them, tailoring sessions to address clients' specific needs.
Sarah Hicks, owner of The Owl Massage & Spa LLC, helms a staff of skilled therapists who uncoil tense sinews with massages that incorporate techniques from around the world. When they aren’t alleviating stress or mending injuries with Swedish, hot-stone, and deep-tissue massages, Sarah and her fellow specialists tend to bodies with the ashiatsu method, a Japanese technique remarkable for its reliance on bare feet rather than hands. When employing this technique—which feels somewhat like a much deeper Swedish massage—the therapists balance themselves on clients' backs by grasping an overhead ceiling bar before carefully walking across sore muscles. Aside from these private massage sessions, The Owl's therapists teach massage techniques to couples and host game-day parties for University of Oregon football fans tense from watching third-down conversions or hoisting sports-drink coolers to pour on the fans seated in front of them.
Led by naturopathic physician Dr. Justin Morse, Absolute Health Medical Center's team of massage therapists, a colon hydrotherapist an aesthetician, and a dental hygienist work together to create integrated, naturopathic and mainstream care plans for each patient. Through this approach, he and his staff members provide both primary medical and dental care. They assist clients through specialty services as well, from weight loss through HCG dieting to detoxification through colon hydrotherapy and infrared-sauna therapy. They also offer aesthetic services, such as organic skincare microdermabrasion, and chemical peels.
Eugene Wellness Center is a place for healing. The studio is home to any number of holistic therapies, including chiropractic treatments, massages, whole-body vibration, and aromatherapy. Complementing all of these is a team of experts eager to teach about the nutritional supplements that support healthy living. Drop by for a detoxifying infrared sauna session, which assists with weight loss and boosts metabolism, or try a deep-tissue massage designed to relieve chronic aches.
Leaving something behind can be an unsettling experience, unless that something is stress. Licensed massage therapist Jennifer Locke brings about this happy occurrence with her roster of massages, Reiki sessions, and ionic foot baths. She also hosts classes for couple?s massage and aromatherapy, which uses nine different essential oils to help detoxify the body.

What are some of your most popular services? What do you think clients love them so much?
The Beauty Room's most popular services are my micro-peel facials, Brazilians, and spray tans. My clients love these services because they are all results-based services using high-quality products. Client's come in, relax, and get to feel instantly more beautiful and spoiled.
A micro peel is a facial that includes microdermabrasion plus a chemical peel, so you get ultimate exfoliation both mechanically and chemically for amazing results. Diamond-tip microdermabrasion mechanically exfoliates your skin, preparing it for a custom chemical peel that includes a cocktail of perfecting ingredients for you specific skin's needs. Your skin will immediately glow, but over the course of a week continue to shine. Four to six treatments are recommended for best results.
Brazilians are performed with advanced waxing techniques and high-quality gentle products. If you are looking for a safe and gentle waxing experience, I'm the right aesthetician for you.
My spray tan technique and solution has been perfected to ensure a natural, even brown tan every time. The Beauty Room spray tan uses the best sunless tanning products in the industry to ensure that your tan looks natural and lasts as long as possible. My products are safe, organic, paraben-free, non-sticky and odorless. Unlike Mystic Tans, I combine natural ingredients and the latest technology to provide you with a streak-free, natural-looking tan that will never leave you looking orange.
Do you use any products or brands you're particularly proud of? What makes them uniquely effective?
RAYA is a European quality skincare line that is affordable yet yields good results. [We also use] PCA (Physicians Care Alliance) Skin. They set the bar high when it comes to innovative skin care, being acknowledged in prominent medical textbooks as the originator of advanced blended chemical peel formulations. I want to build a successful practice and achieve the most effective results using PCA Skin and RAYA daily-care products and professional treatments.
What's the most common beauty mistake you see people make? What would you recommend they do instead?
The two most common beauty mistakes I see potential clients making are not using high-quality, results-based products at home and not seeing a properly educated aesthetician. Just like you brush and floss your teeth twice a day between dental visits, you need to have quality home care for your skin twice a day. Sun protection and gentle exfoliation are the two most important things you can do for your skin on a daily basis. I'm also a firm believer in masking twice a week and at-home facial massages once a week with nourishing oils. Along with monthly aesthetic, work clients need to be taking care of their skin at home. I encourage everyone to come in and get educated about their skin. I'm full of knowledge and willing to share it with you.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
Aesthetics is what I?m truly passionate about, and it shows with each and every client I serve. I take pride in all the services I perform and I love to spoil and make every client feel special. I?m genuinely interested in product knowledge and chemistry, which is proven with my bachelor of science in biology and continuing education. I love to serve others and I?m thrilled to perform result-based services. Through research, trial and error, years of experimenting, and working closely with a chemical engineer, I have found the highest quality products and services to offer. I value the opportunity to share my knowledge and experience with you.
