Though clients flock to licensed massage therapist Dana Randall to experience the soothing effects of her hands, they soon come to realize that her eyes have the same calming powers. Before asking them to recline on the plush massage bed, Randall gets to know her clients face-to-face. Through these informal chats, she comes to identify which modalities might best help them shake off soreness and anxiety from trudging through long workdays or arm-wrestling boogie monsters nightly.
Randall’s breadth of knowledge is as extensive as the range of ailments she can treat: during each massage, she may draw on techniques that span Swedish, deep-tissue, trigger-point, sports, and prenatal modalities. Through this integrative process, she zeroes in on trouble spots and endows physical and psychological benefits that range from easing lower-back pain to promoting an overall sense of calm. When she isn’t soothing muscles with her nimble fingers, Randall draws out built-up wax and other impurities from the ears with gentle ear-candling therapy.
When Lisa Muehlenbein moved from Ohio to Spartanburg in 2007, she couldn't find a suitable outlet for her yoga practice. So, as she told Belle magazine in January 2012, she decided to open her own studio. A registered yoga teacher with nearly 2,000 hours of training, Lisa oversees a squad of registered teachers leading more than 25 classes per week. In an eco-friendly studio designed with sustainably harvested hardwood flooring and mats of renewable rubber, students of all levels stretch zen-wards during classes such as YogaWall, Zen Men yoga, and Zen Kids yoga. After class, students can sustain their relaxed states with massage, acupuncture, and reiki sessions or cups of organic, fair-trade Keurig coffee and Numi tea. The Zen Garden Eco-Chic Boutique stocks a selection of brand-name clothing and accessories made with sustainable materials such as organic cotton and the hair from Tom Jones's chest.
