Misty Moon Nickel opened Bria Pilates and Wellness Studio as a healing conduit for clients, leading them to new vitality through therapeutic movements. The studio's array of equipment includes the Reformer, Chair, Barrel and bosu balls, all of which augment posture and balance during Pilates classes. Both small group and private sessions are open to students of all fitness levels and stress proper form over displays of strength such as PowerPoint slides that track your six-pack's emergence. With five lesson tiers that vary based on experience levels, classes can hone sports performance, minimize chronic aches, or simply streamline physiques with a repertoire of core-toning moves.
Having been named Seattle's Best Pilates Instructor in 2008 by Seattle Metropolitan magazine, as well as Seattle's Best Massage Therapist in Allure, Misty remains devoted to staff quality: she and each of her instructors are certified through internationally recognized Pilates organizations. Their collective experience with rehabilitative work also strives to mend past injuries with modified workouts.
A licensed massage therapist for more than two decades, Audra Sanderhoff purges stress and anxiety from the body during even the most stressful times—including childbirth. As owner of Something Sacred Massage, Audra invites clients—male or female—to stop in for a soothing chair or table massage, during which she incorporates any 1 of her 15 massage techniques with anti-inflammatory lotions. However, Audra’s true gift lies with expectant mothers. Trained as a doula, Audra provides moms-to-be with emotional, physical, and informational support before, during, and after childbirth. She offers three doula packages, complete with birth-planning meetings, prenatal massages, breast-feeding fundamentals, and labor support. Clients can also visit Audra for à la carte services, including prenatal yoga classes designed to prepare the body for childbirth and postnatal follow-ups if the child turns out to be an alien.

Janine spent 16 years working as an executive assistant on Wall Street before abandoning the Charging Bull to study massage at the Swedish Institute in Manhattan. Now a licensed massage therapist, Janine combines her will to please and her newfound skills in therapeutic sessions that combine myofascial-release, deep-tissue, and lomi lomi techniques. While she works, she moves slowly, safely stretching limbs and joints without sudden movements and bringing harmony to the body's internal energies. In addition to her signature trio, her modalities also include hot-stone, shiatsu, Thai, and pregnancy massage.
It was scoliosis that drew Danielle Mellroth to massage therapy. Her chronic pain and tension were relieved by a licensed massage therapist, a feat that pushed Danielle to pay it forward. So she became a licensed massage therapist herself. In fact, she even went one step further by completing training in cupping with the International Cupping Society. Cupping involves the application of heated cups to a client’s skin to create a vacuum that relieves stress and detoxifies the body. Combined with custom massage, it aids in relaxation and alleviating pain.
