A graduate of Utah College of Massage Therapy, Shayna Dunn has spent the past four years quelling aches and tension with a host of massage modalities. During sessions held within Biofit Bootcamp, she might break up muscular knots with deep-tissue kneads or soothe regularly worked muscles to enhance athletic performance.

When working to get clients into a relaxed, meditative state of being, a good spa can’t just rely on one technique. That’s why the staffers at Therapeutix Mind & Body have gained national certifications and master-level achievements in a range of Eastern and Western relaxation techniques. They specialize in massages, incorporating reflexology, cold-stone migraine relief, and aromatherapy to tackle tension both externally and internally. They can add a range of relaxing treatments to their massages, including essential oils, hand and foot scrubs, and 3-D glasses. In addition to their massages, they offer body-contouring packages that use ultrasonic waves and a radio-frequency laser or detoxifying wraps to hone trouble areas.
At The Rejuvenation Center, Dr. Brad Miller's, D.C., mission to treat the body without drugs or surgery has culminated into a menu brimming with noninvasive health and beauty services.

Ultrasound fat-reduction treatments shrink fat cells without breaking the skin, and radio frequency caps off the slenderizing process by firming the skin around retreating waistlines. A staff of aestheticians rounds out beauty regimens with waxing, chemical peels, and facials.
