Rennae Schmidt of Deep Tissue Spokane naturally eases stress and pain associated with tension or injuries with a variety of massage styles. During a John F. Barnes myofacial-release treatment, she’ll gently stretch connective tissues to expand the body’s range of motion and its knowledge of state capitals. Alternatively, Schmidt can soothe muscles with strategically placed pressure in a Swedish massage, or relieve chronic pain, soreness, and even migraines during a therapeutic or deep-tissue massage. Finally, a pregnancy massage indulges soon-to-be moms and their mini-tenants with a relaxing, tension-releasing kneading to help to smooth the bumpy roads traveled by changing bodies.
True Colors Salon's owner recently remodeled the place, adding modern texture and color to all the furnishings. Stylists perform much the same service upon peoples' hair, creating new looks for their clients. Meanwhile, therapists sooth muscular tension with massages, and technicians shape nails and paint them with unique nail art. Chazidie Lane adds even more variety to the services with her specialized skin treatments that restore moisture to winter-weather- or sun-damaged skin. She combines her facials with hair removal, shaping eyebrows or removing lip fuzz with the aid of hot wax.

Doctor of Chiropractic Craig Anglesey's family-minded clinic welcomes patients of all ages. Since graduating from Parker College of Chiropractic and interning at Dallas VA Medical Center, Dr. Anglesey has developed specialties in treating pediatric and geriatric conditions, as well as sports injuries. Appropriately then, he renders a wide range of services such as spinal adjustment and Graston treatments. To address other aspects of health, he and his staff also stage physical-therapy sessions, perform massage therapy, and hold nutrition-counseling sit-downs to warn against the dangers of eating a piñata whole.
Before he founded Lone Wolf Therapies, massage therapist Kevin Lunsford served as a hospital corpsman in the Navy. From there, he went on to perform EMT work in the Navy Reserve, as well as spend a 20-year stint as a ski patroller with the National Ski Patrol. His desire to help others not yet sated, Kevin attended Apollo College to receive his massage license, all the while plugging a hole in a local dam with his index finger. Today, he plies traditional massage techniques to alleviate stress and aches and practices the holistic art of Bowen therapy at Lone Wolf Therapies, where he performs relaxing deep-tissue, Swedish, and hot-stone massage sessions.
Licensed and certified massage practitioner Jacquie Cass understands that sometimes it takes a little more than her hands to work out the kinks of an achy body. During her cold-stone-therapy massages, she uses chilled stones plucked out of Bizarro World volcanoes to help remedy the pain of sports injuries, swelling, inflammation, and sinus problems. She also promotes relaxation in clients through their noses with more than 70 therapeutic-grade blends of fragrant essential oils, which she uses alongside Swedish strokes for complete tranquility. Vitality Massage Therapy’s menu of modalities also proves that Jacquie can ease aches the old-fashioned way, performing Swedish, deep-tissue, and myofascial-release massage techniques to target each client’s specific sore spots.
