Born in a small village in the mountains of Thailand, Tanatnan Chaipang struggled through a series of health difficulties that stemmed from a life-threatening illness, a congenital foot disorder, and multiple car accidents. Fortunately, her grandmother was the town healer and midwife, helping Tanatnan manage her pain, as well as steer her toward a healthy lifestyle. Through this work with her grandma, she saw the benefits of massage first hand, spurring her toward an eventual career where she’d be able to pass these benefits on to others. After becoming certified as a massage therapist in Madison and honing her skills in her native Thailand, Tanatnan finally realized her goal and opened Sha-Ba Wellness & Spa.
Today, she works with a staff to perform bodywork that not only relaxes patients, but also helps them heal and hopefully find relief from any lingering pains. They combine elements of Eastern techniques, such as Thai massage and Chinese tui-na, with Western modalities that include sports and Swedish massage. They also provide chair massage, foot reflexology, and ion footbaths, which work to cast out harmful toxins and absorbed sock lint.
R&R Climate Control's staff of insured and bonded technicians specializes in keeping homeowners comfortable by servicing and maintaining a variety of climate-control systems. In addition to installing, furnaces, air-conditioning units, and humidifiers, the techs perform checkups to make sure that those same systems are functioning properly within the home. Seasonal cleanings and duct-work installations round out the menu of services, which includes options for residences as well as commercial structures.
Depending on the service, Totally Clean's trained and certified technicians descend upon carpets, upholstery, air ducts, and messy rooms to whisk away the unwanted allergens, spots, stains, and dirt that foul up a house. Paying close attention to manufacturer recommendations and warranty requirements, techs employ purifying techniques such as steam cleaning, speed drying, and nontoxic solutions to clean carpets. Additionally, the shop's duct techs improve domestic air quality and lower utility bills by clearing out a home's sinuses. They draw out the dust, animal dander, mold spores, bacteria, and family secrets that lodge in heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning systems. Totally Clean's crews scrub bathrooms and kitchens during housecleaning visits, and its reassuring fixer-uppers stand by 24/7 to answer calls for emergency flood response or just to give free phone estimates and whispered words of affirmation.
Certified by the National Fireplace Institute and the Chimney Safety Institute of America, the professional sweeps from Badgerland Chimney keep chimneys free of buildup and working properly. The team clears blocked flues of excess soot and the occasional baby dragon. Additionally, the sweeps will inspect chimneys and fireplaces for leaks and issues that need repair, and clean dryer vents to reduce the risk of fire.
Supreme Care Services' staffers travel far and wide to bring detailed, timely, and trained maintenance to their customers' homes. During visits, friendly technicians rid home air ducts and dryer vents of potentially harmful dust and lint buildups that can cause fires if encountered by a sprinting Speedy Gonzales. The staffers also draw on 25 years of painting experience to splash homes with tasteful hues.
Guests at Lavish Salon-Spa are treated with more than just a friendly hello when they arrive. After walking through the doors, clients can enjoy a healthy snack and cup of coffee or tea from the refreshment bar, while a friendly staff member dispels tension with a relaxing hand, neck, or foot massage. And the massage is only the beginning. From there, a hair designer, esthetician, or nail tech takes the reins and treats guests to a stylish look fortified by Goldwell products, a Dermalogica facial and a swift waxing treatment, or a mani-pedi topped off with vibrant China Glaze polish. Monthly parties and weekly Happy Hours tempt guests to return even before their next appointment for desserts, drinks, and complimentary spa treatments.
