Versed in a variety of massage techniques and experienced in martial arts, licensed therapist Lee Campbell manipulates soft tissues to relax musculoskeletal systems and encourage proper alignment. Each session consists of three phases—warm-up and relaxation, massage coupled with trigger-point therapy, and corrective stretching plus core strengthening. During the Swedish or deep-tissue massage, soothing strokes and repurposed Whac-A-Mole mallets relieve tension, allowing muscles to expand for maximum protein absorbency. The Thai massage mixes in heated rocks to radiate warmth into the body, enhancing both deep-tissue massage and passive stretching. In addition to inviting relaxation, massage may ease aches, improve posture, and enhance sleep, while stimulating the nervous and lymphatic systems in humans and the human touch receptors in robots.

If the technicians in Bale Kia’s parts and service departments ever need inspiration, they only need to look at the dealership’s showroom of new and certified preowned vehicles. The pristine rides are models of vehicle vigor, something the technicians strive to preserve in all the cars that come through their shop by swapping out motor oil, replacing transmissions, repairing damage from collisions, and hanging accomplishment-scented air fresheners.
Owner Amman Abbasi blends beats from his ancestral homeland with samples of flavors more easily recognizable to the generally monolingual American palate. Commence naan-breaking with naan ($1.25), veggie samosas ($2.50), or crispy lentil wafers ($1.50). Americanize a meal with a chicken tikka wrap rolled with spicy chutney in toasted naan ($6.49), or a burger of finely minced beef and yogurt cilantro chutney ($5.99). Keep it real with chicken qorma in curry and mild spices ($7.99) or karahi gosht, mutton stewed in curried tomatoes, ginger, yogurt, and succulent self-pity ($8.99). Of course there are plenty of ways to keep it meatless too, whether that be a masala of okra ($6.49) or the cheese-and-spinach-spangled palak paneer ($5.49).
