Bohemian Massage & Bodywork's featured massage therapist, Valerie Kelly, honed her craft at chiropractic offices, spas, and sports-treatment facilities for years. This diversity has helped Valerie develop a signature massage style that fuses therapeutic care with spa-like pampering. Her roster includes clinical treatments, such as therapeutic massages to help rehabilitate after auto accidents and sports-related barroom brawls. She can also perform lavish seaweed wraps and sugar and salt body scrubs. As a trained doula, she has the know-how to help ease pregnancy woes with labor and birth massages or memorialize the experience with plaster belly casts of expectant mothers.
Dr. Troy Dreiling has taken his passion for chiropractic outside the usual places. In the past 18 years, he's opened clinics in Romania, served on Panamanian missions, raised money for charity, and hosted a family-friendly radio show that discusses healthy choices.
Dr. Dreiling hasn't neglected his office, however. At Zenaptic Chiropractic, he strives to alleviate all types of corporeal discomfort with a combination of traditional and high-tech treatments: adjustments and massages work alongside heated hydro-massages and traction treatments. A firm believer in "Dr. You," Dr. Dreiling also empowers patients by teaching them self-care techniques, such as stretches, nutrition tips, and ways to distinguish a safe motorcycle jump from a risky one.
Adults love to drink coffee. Kids love to play. But unless you have a frappuccino-filled swimming pool in your backyard, there aren't many places where both activities can take place. That's where Little Cups & Grownups comes in. Part cafe and part play-space, Little Cups allows adults to relax and converse as their children interact in a supervised area stocked with toys and books. Baristas pour Caffe D'arte coffee and espresso drinks alongside salads, chicken wraps, and turkey paninis, while parties provide kids with snacks and drinks of their own, including personal pizzas and juice.
The technicians at Holistic Vibrations believe healing begins at the cellular level, so they employ pulsated electromagnetic-field therapy that helps naturally raise cell vibration, increasing immune function, tissue healing, and balancing of the sympathetic nervous system and the body's biorhythms. And they aren't the only ones. Electromagnetic-field therapy has been written about in thousands of scientific publications and was featured on The Dr. Oz Show. The therapy uses magnetic-resonance stimulation to encourage cells' health, which relieves pain and injury throughout the body.

Brian Soderholm went through periods of ill health as a child, but that didn’t stop him from playing sports. He loved the freedom of expression he found in physical movement. This love led him to the European Rolfing Association, where he found a personal connection to Dr. Ida Rolf's effective bodywork technique, which uses firm pressure to vertically realign the body. Today, clients may solicit Brian's healing techniques in the comfort of his renovated Vancouver studio, a historic building with roots dating back to the 1800s.
