Dara Van Deusen has been in the massage-therapy game for 10 years—plenty of time to master seven different massage styles. Her specialties range from gentle Swedish massage to intense deep-tissue massage, and they even include pregnancy massage, a style which soothes the aches of carrying a baby or a prairie dog shaved to look like a baby all day long.
Since earning her cosmetology license in 1991, Amy Pinios has pampered clients with a variety of skincare services in her upscale salon.

As someone who grew up playing competitive sports, Michelle Gaine always understood the importance of therapeutic massage and proper physical training when striving to achieve peak performance and overall fitness. This fundamental understanding sank in even deeper after she was involved in a life-changing car accident. Over the course of 12 difficult months, a number of therapists helped her regain control over her body, ultimately inspiring her decision to spend the rest of her life assisting others in the same fashion. In 2000, she graduated from a clinical massage program, achieved an NC LMBT license, and became nationally certified in the art of massage therapy.
Rather than offering standardized treatments, Gaine draws from nine modalities to formulate custom massages. She eschews the one-size-fits-all philosophy found in some studios, pricing the use of any of her techniques based solely on the length of the session. This allows her to treat each patient in a manner that will reap the most benefits and address specific problems, such as chronic pain or a dray of back-burrowing squirrels. Yoga and qi gong instructors also help further Gaine's mission of restoration and healing with breath training, stretching, and meditative philosophies designed to help bodies align themselves from the inside out.
Massage is more than just time for ourselves. It should be an important part of our daily lives to relieve stress and to help heal. Stress is an extremely unhealthy aspect of our lives, but we can combat it with healthy living and massage therapy. Massage can help heal the body and the mind.
