Taronda Harrison had a rough go––a slipped and bulging lumbar disc, a dislocated hip, and a pinched sciatic nerve. Pain was her way of life for more than a decade. Then she met Dr. Johnson. With the help of his staff of licensed massage therapists, he was able to return Taronda from crutches to a normal existence. In the time since she's made it her mission to be that bright light for others. The name Yahriel is the female derivative of the 'Uriel'––a virtuous warrior who fights with a fiery sword. It's also a throwback to her first time massaging a client. As if the ceiling opened up with light, she knew this was her true calling. Operating out of her own Solera Spa suite, Taronda can improve range of motion in struggling limbs with flowing Swedish strokes, or improve range of emotion in struggling actors with reflexology or deep-tissue bodywork.
Relinquish Holistic Spa tackles maladies of all stripes with a team made up of an energy healer, a licensed massage therapist, and a reiki master. The cadre of helping hands employs a variety of massage styles that range from deep-tissue massage, heated-stone work, and crystal healing that aims to bring harmony to bodies more effectively than transplanting the vocal chords from an entire barbershop quartet. During chakra-balancing bodywork, the staff guides clients through meditation and breath work paired with more concrete massage. For more modern treatments, the licensed estheticians trot out infrared body wraps and lipo-cavitation to reduce cellulite and eradicate excess pounds.
Certified massage therapists slather skin in organic products made with fruits and vegetables, working the botanical elements into the skin with gentle hand movements or massage tools. The staff also possesses mastery with Bongers? therapeutic instruments that mimic the impact of a child's fist. Aside from paddling taut muscles or snare drums, therapists arrange heated stones on sore muscles, apply a gentle touch to expectant mothers, and knead overused tissues on athletes. Each massage is tailored to the client's specific needs, and will restore bodies to a state of relaxed joyousness unlike any they?ve experienced since they got their braces removed.
