The technicians at Holistic Vibrations believe healing begins at the cellular level, so they employ pulsated electromagnetic-field therapy that helps naturally raise cell vibration, increasing immune function, tissue healing, and balancing of the sympathetic nervous system and the body's biorhythms. And they aren't the only ones. Electromagnetic-field therapy has been written about in thousands of scientific publications and was featured on The Dr. Oz Show. The therapy uses magnetic-resonance stimulation to encourage cells' health, which relieves pain and injury throughout the body.
Smoke and fierce heat rise from a battalion of Weber gas grills and Big Green Egg smokers as barbecue docents line up in front of them, ready to wrangle rafts of raw meat into expertly grilled, smoked, and sauced feasts. In classes that range from three to seven hours, Phoenix BBQ and Grilling School's instructors impart their knowledge of sauces and marinades. They also teach students how to brine, smoke, and grill ingredients such as ribs, turkeys, chickens, peppers, pork, and veggies, all of which are provided. The three dudes in charge have been leading classes since 1998. Head honcho Stu McMullen draws upon myriad cooking classes and international travels to develop exciting recipes, while "sauce king" Eric Viken introduces sauces that can enchant palates and save accidentally overcooked meats. The barbecue experts hold classes onsite or in private backyards, enabling the family cat to finally learn to do something productive with its hunting gifts.
At Serenity Wellness and Nails, the staff works under the philosophy that the state of one's exterior and interior are closely intertwined. So, they offer multiple types of manicures and pedicures to help their client's feel confident about their appearance, which, in turn, often has a positive effect on their general wellbeing. The staff is also very health conscious, believing that good health translates into a glowing exterior. Therefore, they specialize in health-related treatments such as diabetic foot care, use disposable liners in their pedicure tubs, and greet each customer with a preventative "gesundheit!"
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.
Bohemian Massage & Bodywork's featured massage therapist, Valerie Kelly, honed her craft at chiropractic offices, spas, and sports-treatment facilities for years. This diversity has helped Valerie develop a signature massage style that fuses therapeutic care with spa-like pampering. Her roster includes clinical treatments, such as therapeutic massages to help rehabilitate after auto accidents and sports-related barroom brawls. She can also perform lavish seaweed wraps and sugar and salt body scrubs. As a trained doula, she has the know-how to help ease pregnancy woes with labor and birth massages or memorialize the experience with plaster belly casts of expectant mothers.
