At Utah Body Therapies, Inc., the massage therapists don’t just squirt out some oil and hastily get to work. First, they sit down with their clients and talk about their goals in undergoing massage therapy. Then, the bodywork specialists help clients ease pain and promote relaxation with a variety of massage modalities. Their sports-injury massages help deal with pain, inflammation, or numbness so clients quickly can get back to their sports routines or just bench-press the massage table right there on the spot. Hot-stone and relaxation techniques also help ease pain, but are better suited for those who prefer a lighter massage to deal with muscle tension.
Doctor of Chiropractic Edward Smith believes in treating the cause of bodily woes, not just the symptoms. After a car crash left him with debilitating headaches and medication provided only temporary relief, his pain ceased after seeing a chiropractor. This inspired him to become one himself, and he's earned a chiropractic degree and Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist certification. At Decker Lake Chiropractic, Smith takes the wellness approach with his patients, seeking to understand the cause of pain and problems. This manifests in services that include spinal adjustments, exercises to correct skeletal misalignments, massages, and body-contouring fat-reduction treatments as well as lifestyle and nutritional advice.
Licensed massage therapist Emily Sparks attended Eagle Gate College, where she perfected hands-on techniques such as Swedish massage, deep-tissue bodywork, and opening a pickle jar with one finger. Now in the comfort of her own Spark of Life massage suite, Emily can melt stress with a relaxation massage or apply firmer kneads to relieve muscle aches and spasms.
Elyse Ipsen understands firsthand how natural remedies can aid health. As a child, she suffered from allergies and eczema, but it wasn't until her mother taught her about holistic healing that she saw results. Inspired by her own experiences, Elyse began learning other healthful techniques and methods and became determined to share her knowledge with others.
Today, Elyse helps clients regain vigor at Wellness Within Me. Her services focus on promoting health by purging the body of toxins and unwanted substances, be it through cleansing colon hydrotherapy or the soothing soak of ionic footbaths. Elyse also hosts classes to encourage positive lifestyle changes, such as eating raw foods instead of dining on processed ingredients or grazing.
UpZen Health's highly trained team of chiropractors and massage therapists takes a holistic approach to wellness, soothing the body and mind with therapeutic massage. During the 90-minute relaxation massage, clients rest on a cushy table in a private room while a certified tension catcher gently kneads and strokes sore muscles and tense limbs, coaxing anxiety and stress from the body and trapping it in a mason jar. Offering benefits to all types of bodies, the calming massage can boost circulation, fight insomnia, hone foot-ear coordination, and promote a deep sense of wellbeing.
