Sometimes the little things make all the difference. Do you bake any supplementary services into your main services?
Come and experience a truly relaxing and invitingly deep massage. I strive to make my bodywork as relaxing as it is therapeutic. I blend several different styles such as, Swedish relaxation, deep-therapeutic relaxation, myofascial release, neuromuscular treatment, and aromatherapy into my massage to provide you with a profoundly relaxing and effective massage experience.
Because of the intensity and uniqueness of my work, I usually see no more than three or four clients a day to make sure that I can give you the best massage experience possible. I also leave you plenty of time after your massage to relax on the table and dress in a leisurely manner.
Do you use any products or brands you're particularly proud of? What makes them uniquely effective?
DoTERRA CPTG-certified pure therapeutic-grade essential oils are 100% pure, natural, aromatic compounds carefully extracted from plants. They do not contain fillers or artificial ingredients that would dilute their active qualities, and they are free of contaminants such as pesticides or other chemical residues.
What is the best reaction you?ve ever gotten from a client?
From a 90-years-young female client receiving her first massage as a gift from her daughter, "If heaven is anything like this, I am ready to go."
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
A fair portion of MassageBeneficial's mission is to empower my clients with tools for safe, effective self-care between visits. Most people cannot afford a massage everyday or even every time they feel the need. For those wishing to learn more about natural approaches to wellness and self-care, I offer private consultations and education around which essential oils or blends may be the most effective in supporting a client's individual emotional or physical concerns.
Dr. Daniel Hanson's career stemmed from a life-changing event?a propitious visit to a chiropractor. As a high-school student, he suffered from intense headaches that impeded his ability to play running back or even finesse the pirouette at the end of his touchdown dance. Medication proved ineffective, so he sought chiropractic treatment. With a few gentle spinal adjustments, Dr. Hanson was not only free of pain but in good enough condition to become the MVP of his school's football team. Nowadays, boasting his own chiropractic degree and clinic, Dr. Hanson devotes himself to the same approach that helped him in his youth, alleviating his patient's neck pain, migraines, and backaches with adjustments and decompression therapy.

These therapists can each render at least one of the center's reparative modalities, such as medical massage and sports conditioning.

The earth-toned lobby echoes the relaxing nature of the massage treatments, encouraging ease and calm right away.
