For 25 years, Ringolevio Salon?s stylists, aestheticians, and massage therapists have been reviving appearances and recharging spirits inside a clean and modern studio space. While stylists combine their creativity and skill to craft haircuts that range from classic to cutting-edge, colorists design brilliant new hair hues using all-vegan Pureology products. Aestheticians combat blemishes, acne, and age spots with classic European facials, oxygen-therapy facials, and glycolic-acid treatments, and even offer teeth whitening to ensure newly even complexions aren't diminished by yellowed grins. As for the massage therapists, they pander to tight muscles and tense minds with a host of modalities that includes hot stone and reflexology and will gladly customize an aromatherapy treatment based on the client's favorite scents and number of noses.
At Zazen, students relax their bodies and focus their minds during sessions of Zen Buddhist seated meditation, the soothing practice for which the center is named. But both Zazen locations work to cultivate calm with other services as well. Sensory-deprivation tanks block out distracting external stimuli as guests float in 10 inches of warm saltwater, a practice many say helps them grow their awareness of the present moment. Massage sessions focus on freeing the body from tension, so it can be experienced as spaciousness rather than constraint. Yoga classes also help guests become mindful, filling hearts and limbs with enough calm energy to quiet a bawling infant with a single, whispered "shhh."
Dr. Morello first experienced chiropractic care as a patient. During an early sports career that sequenced seasons of soccer, baseball, and basketball, he became accustomed to relying on chiropractors for relief from the resultant pains and musculoskeletal injuries. Inspired by these treatments and his love for sports and sports medicine, Dr. Morello earned an undergraduate degree in biology and eventually graduated from Palmer West Chiropractic.
Today, sports are no longer Dr. Morello's sole driving force. Over time, he learned how chiropractic care?when coupled with proper nutrition and bionic limb replacement?can contribute to holistic well-being. He now shares this with patients while helping relieve joint pain and muscular stress with chiropractic adjustments and therapeutic massages.
Body Techniques' more than 20 therapists, trainers, acupuncturists, and aestheticians work together to create a unique facility that's part spa, part fitness studio.
They tone bodies with a combination of yoga, Zumba, and boot camps that focus on strength and stretch.
They relieve the resulting soreness, along with general tension or chronic pain, with 18 different massage modalities and acupuncture. They round out the selection of services with skin treatments ranging from organic facials and oxygen facelifts to waxing treatments to remove unwanted hair, allowing guests to perfectly emulate their own wax sculpture.
After 30 years in the corporate world of investment banking, Roy Bergmann needed a change. He decided to ditch conference rooms in favor of studio space, and founded The Mindful Body to explore his passion for yoga, massage, and wellness. He gathered a team of like-minded individuals with the goal of providing a healing and nurturing center.
Today, they employ more than 20 yoga teachers who conduct a suite of more than 60 classes per week, including such styles as the mind-body-synchronizing Ashtanga, the classic-asana-focused Hatha, and nurturing restorative and prenatal yoga for moms to be. Also on board are more than 45 massage therapists trained in everything from Swedish and deep tissue to the Chinese practice of organ massage to neuromuscular therapy, a system designed to make muscles smarter.
Dinair Pinheiro Sisson studied massage in Brazil before moving to America. In addition to her license to knead, she also holds certifications that grant her the title of "Advanced Practitioner" and "Supreme Massage Potentate." A deep-tissue specialist, she also offers modalities ranging from lymphatic drainage to aesthetic massage. The latter bridges the gap between her massage practice and her beauty treatments, which she performs as a licensed aesthetician thanks to her studies at the San Francisco School of Cosmetology.
As a practicing certified massage therapist for over two years, Jessica Gedrocz's core belief is that the power of touch can revitalize all parts of the body and mind. Using a variety of modalities such as Swedish, deep tissue, myofacial release, trigger point therapy, Ortho-Bionomy, advanced neck work, and advanced massage, Jessica helps her clients receive a consortium of benefits, such as a decrease in anxiety, an improvement in concentration, and an increase in muscle flexibility.
When it comes to educating people about natural health, Doctor of Chiropractic John Erdmann isn’t content to just share his knowledge across Natural Health Family Center’s two locations. Rather, he brings his expertise to the masses with seminars on diet, exercise, and emotional freedom, as well as by packing his website with useful information. But trips to the office are necessary for his gentle adjustments and holistic specialty—applied kinesiology—a method that combines manual muscle testing with diagnostic tests to help increase the body’s potential.

His genuine passion for helping others compels him to take regular trips to other countries, where he plies his healing trade to orphans, people with disabilities, monks, and government officials.
Before Aaron Harris ever rescued a sore back with massage, he dashed to the aid of others as a paramedic. Today, he applies his knowledge of kinesiology and physiology with a backdrop of soothing sounds rather than sirens to help his clients recover from injuries and battle chronic pain. To ensure top-notch treatments, he staffs his office with current students and alumni of the National Holistic Institute who also studied kinesiology, anatomy, and physiology. These trained therapists are skilled in massage modalities such as Swedish, deep tissue, zen shiatsu, and Thai. And when they aren't kneading sinews, they perform holistic techniques such as energy work, aromatherapy, crystal healing, and reiki. They can also leave their office to mend muscles and mobilize joints on-location at events, such as a tin-man convention.
Chronic body ache can feel like a daily battle, and perhaps no one understands battling like Nate Torra. In addition to being a licensed massage therapist, Nate is a certified judo instructor and a two-time senior nation champion in the martial art. This mingling of bodywork and athleticism gives Nate a leg-up when tailoring massage techniques to the individual's needs. Clients can focus on an individual area with firm deep-tissue pressure, or aim for full-body relaxation with flowing Swedish strokes.
Massage therapist Evelyn is a muscle whisperer. She calms tense muscles using nothing more than her two trained hands. Depending on her clients? ailments, Evelyn glides her hands along the back, pushes her thumbs into pressure points, deeply kneads dermal canvases, or gently rocks the body to sleep while dispensing a lullaby. Her sessions are customized for each individual, covering their scalp, neck, shoulder, and upper back in 15 minutes to traversing the entire body in a 90-minute period.

Back in Action Massage owner Chris Barnes and his staff of therapists know a thing or two about relaxation. When he wasn’t spending blissful afternoons lounging on the deck of his sailboat, Barnes logged 900 hours in National Holistic Institute's core program. In the process, he achieved the highest levels of massage mastery available. An expert in Swedish, shiatsu, Thai, and deep tissue massage, he also uses his adroit hands to relieve stress by performing myofacial therapy or opening really stubborn cream cheese packets for clients during big meetings.
