Kasandra Lambert and Kei Huynh, the husband-and-wife team behind Live Well(ness) LLC, make their living with their hands. They're both trained massage therapists, and chronic pain stands little chance against their various techniques.
Kasandra specializes in deep-tissue and prenatal massage, easing away tension and helping expectant mothers cope with the physical demands of pregnancy. Kei, on the other hand, is a master of the assisted, yoga-like stretches of Thai massage. Though their techniques differ, the couple shares a common goal. "We see a lot of relief around here," says Kasandra. "People ... come in and seem very negative, but leave positive and refreshed."
