D's Yoga Home's certified instructors and holistic healers foster a community of mind-and-body wellness with eclectic yoga classes. Like Baldwin brothers, the schedule boasts diversity and features varying levels of difficulty, including introductory classes designed to acquaint fledgling flexers with the basic poses, proper alignment, and breathing techniques. Mixed-level classes hone strength and endurance with Vinyasa-inspired flowing poses, whereas restorative practices utilize supportive props to nurture the body during hip openers and back bends.
Todd Beckman founded MassageLuXe with the notion that five-star service should not be limited to pricey hotels. Today, the spa's team of qualified massage therapists and aestheticians continues to realize and build upon Todd's initial aspirations. A spa day at MassageLuXe includes all the perks one might expect from a vacation resort, from facials and massages to full-body waxing and baths in warm, effervescent champagne. The company's services tend to exceed expectations in other ways, too; along with standard massages such as Swedish and deep tissue, therapists are proficient in specialty modalities such as hot stone, reflexology, and aromatherapy.
Licensed massage therapists are fluent in an array of kneading modalities, allowing them to cater each table session to address each client's specific concerns. Among their repertoire of specialized treatments, the myofascial-release massage focuses relief on the body's connective tissues to improve flexibility and circulation. Alternatively, Swedish effleurage uses light to medium pressure applied in long, even strokes to melt away mind and muscle tension, and sports massages help runners, cyclists, and rodeo clowns enhance their overall performance.
At A Healing Place Massage for Wellness, there's a special focus on the lymphatic system. Using standard modalities such as Swedish and deep tissue, the staff takes care of clients with relaxing techniques that calm the body. Therapists can also loosen tissue and relieve pain by practicing myofascial-release therapy, a blend of massage and stretching. Inspired by the lavender fields of France, the soothing scent of the flower permeates the air to relax clients, and everything from the walls to the products are splashed with a lavender hue.
