Dr. Curtis Hoyt and the team of licensed massage therapists at Troy Chiropractic Wellness & Massage Center ease uptight muscles with a selection of body-balancing services. Massage-seeking clients recline for a muscle kneading that proceeds with the long, gentle strokes of the relaxation method or the firmer pressure necessary for unfurling deep-tissue tangles. Chiropractic and decompression treatments unfurl corkscrewed spines and attempt to alleviate the chronic pains associated with degenerative disc disease. Specialized decompression tables send pulses through spines as a computer targets nerves pinched while exercising or discs scratched during overzealous DJ sets.
Gwendolyn Shafer, owner of Signature Day Spa, pampers skin with European-style treatments beneath the spa's hanging art and cascades of natural light. The multivitamin facial harnesses gentle Dermalogica products to tighten sagging epidermises, reduce hyperpigmentation, and help patrons win over stern canine officers. Dull facades bathe in a purifying cleanser before a multivitamin scrub exfoliates and nourishes skin. Aestheticians evict stubborn blackheads, oil, and dirt during the pore extraction process and soothe patrons with a gentle neck and shoulder pressure-point massage. Cleansed countenances retreat under the blanket of a multivitamin mask, emerging with improved levels of collagen and elasticity. Finally, the skin virtuoso applies a moisturizer that leaves faces beaming like a clown-college valedictorian.

Licensed massage therapist Michele Kerrigan unearths the silver linings in achy muscle clouds with her soothing bodywork.

Owner and massage therapist Kenyatta Bozeman understands that massage is a practical way to relieve chronic pain?she graduated from the Dayton School of Medical Massage?but she also believes it should be a memorable experience. That's why she enhances her treatments with hot-towel add-ons, nine essential oils including tea tree and ylang-ylang, and even time for an after-massage nap, which can last up to 30 minutes or until the client's REM cycle has finished downloading the latest edition of Netscape Navigator. These add-ons complete the eight styles of massage available, including deep-tissue, hot-stone, and prenatal.
Massage therapist Jennifer Myers?s fingers dance over knotted muscles with the smooth, gliding strokes of Swedish massage to soothe aches and dispel tension. She incorporates essential oils into her kneading for aromatherapeutic sessions that stimulate the senses of both touch and smell, much like a hug from a warthog. Myers can also tailor sessions by blending techniques for mothers to be, fathers of the bride, and future cartographers of America.
