When she was still learning the nuances of her craft in massage school, Rhonda Lakip-Ochoa wasted no time sharing her newfound powers with those who needed them most. After classes ended, she?d practice what she?d learned that day on her mother, who had cancer, and the seniors under her charge during a day job as a caregiver. Now, as the principle practitioner at A Healing Touch Massage Therapy/Spa LLC, Rhonda draws upon these formative experiences to soothe clients from all walks of life. During in-office sessions, she unknots kinked muscles with bodywork drawn from massage traditions including deep tissue and hot stone. Rhonda and her team of certified massage therapists also schedule in-home appointments, arriving at area doorsteps bearing massage tables, lotions, and calming music.
Although she?s now a full-fledged massage therapist, Rhonda never forgot her commitment to bringing peace to the infirm. Today, she still caters to clients with Alzheimer's and dementia, easing their ills with strokes that are lighter, slower than usual. She also massages individuals undergoing cancer treatments, MS, and other illnesses at her non-profit facility, A Healing Garden.

Little Lotus Wellness Studio is a wellness center for the 21st century. For proof, head to the studio's YouTube channel, affectionately known as the "Meditation Station." There, clients can watch guided meditations, yoga demos, yoga-themed soap operas, and other clips that can help them sustain their healthy lifestyle between visits.
Don't let the team's savvy use of the internet fool you, though. Staff members are as hip to the past as they are to the present, and they prove it by highlighting ancient healing practices. Yoga, for instance, is the studio's primary focus. Classes especially emphasize Hatha, a style that blends flexibility-enhancing poses with conscious breathing. Other styles include Mixed Yoga, which incorporates aspects of ashtanga and kundalini yoga, and Lean & Lovely, which blends yoga poses with Pilates, light weight lifting, and aerobics. To complement the workouts, the team hosts weekly meditation sessions, too, and a house massage therapist is on hand to soothe aches and pains and relax the mind.
Aromatherapy oils and hot stones are the tools of relaxation at New Beginnings Massage Studio. If desired, the licensed massage therapists will use these in tandem with any classic European or deep-tissue massage, which both can loosen tense muscles and relax clients from head to toe. You can also opt to stay dressed and dry with a chair massage.
