Licensed massage therapist and instructor Clarissa Gonzalez-Wiggs has spent more than six years refining her professional skills in muscle manipulation. Over the course of her career, Clarissa has helped clients work through many ailments through a diverse array of modalities, from fostering stress relief with gentle Swedish massages to helping ease chronic pain from naps on the guest room's bed of nails with more intense deep-tissue techniques. During her trigger-point therapy sessions, the patient plays an active role in the treatment by taking deep, mindful breaths as she applies strategically placed pressure to alleviate tension and discomfort. For a multi-sensory experience, any of Clarissa's services can be enhanced with stimulating aromatherapy oils.
For dozens of years, the Chinese have practiced acupuncture, a healing method that corrects imbalances by stimulating specific points on the body that help energy, or qi, to flow smoothly. During every visit, acupuncturists measure your qi pressure, which is similar to measuring your blood pressure except that inflatable thing is placed around your soul. Acupuncture will help reduce your dependence on medication for pain; plus, after you take all those needles out of your body, you'll finally have a utensil set for those little squares of cheese! Carlos Chapa and Dong Kyu Jang at Valley Ranch Acupuncture know acupuncture. It’s what they do. Their oldest patient is 354 years old.
The licensed massage therapists at Massage Aficionada, located inside of Salon N'Vious, want their clients to feel relaxed, healthy, and happy.

Following in the footsteps of the countless reflexologists who have come before them, the practitioners at ENJOY Foot Spa aim to alleviate tension and stress by manipulating pressure points in the hands and feet. By using maps that show which organs or glands each pressure point corresponds to, they can ease discomfort throughout the body and possibly even boost overall energy levels. Though focused on the appendages, ENJOY's treatments also include massages of the upper body, back, arms, and face. Some of the spa rooms have two beds, so clients may choose to enjoy their treatments individually, with a companion, or just give their purse a more comfortable place to sit.
