As a teenage survivor of Hodgkin's lymphoma, owner and licensed aesthetician Amber Henson believes that a healthy skincare regime is just as important as a healthy diet and exercise. To that end, she provides complimentary makeup lessons to any clients undergoing chemotherapy or radiation and addresses her customers' skin concerns with organic and clinical treatments. Her facials can alleviate the signs of aging and acne, and her peels with organic fruit and microscopic subscription cards increase cell renewal. Amber’s care for skin starts from the follicle up, as she also offers waxing services for men and women.
At a very young age, there was only one thing Mikayla Guerin wanted to be when she grew up: a massage therapist. She started working toward her dream right after high school, when she moved to Portland, Oregon, to attend East West College of the Healing Arts. There, she learned that massage brings clients much more than tension relief. It can also aid in digestion, eliminate chronic pain, and strengthen the immune system enough to protect against kryptonite.
As MG Massage, she utilizes her learned skills with deep-tissue, hot-stone, and ashiatsu massages. She also offers upgrades that include soothing lavender lotion, heated eye pillows, and a hand and nail treatment that uses organic cream.
Over the course of 11 years, licensed massage practitioner Amber Ham has been fine tuning her soothing techniques that eliminate aches, pains, and tension. Combining just the right amount of pressure with soothing strokes, Ham helps boost circulation, inspire calm, and relieve pain and stiffness throughout the body. When not using her healing hands to boost flexibility and release stress in her patients, Ham spends her time studying alternative healthcare, hiking, raising chickens, keeping beehives, and unplugging cell-phone chargers when not in use.
Karynn MacKinnon has worked as a student athletic trainer for the Detroit Lions and both the US and Canadian national cycling teams. Now, after a 20-year stint managing special events, she's returned to her first love by becoming a licensed massage therapist and second-degree reiki practitioner. In the comfort of her own private studio, Karynn can unblock energy channels with a reiki healing session or temper chronic pain with deep-tissue pressure or the flowing stokes of Swedish bodywork.
