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 bio-mat, reflexology, and aromatherapy.
Licensed therapist and founder of Eye Intuitive Cheyenne Mcquilkin applies her deft hands and 14 years of experience to assuage achy muscles and joints with a vast array of massage modalities. During Swedish massages, Cheyenne delivers long, gliding strokes of medium pressure to ease muscles into a state of relaxation similar to stretching out in a recliner on a bunk bed. Deep-tissue massage incorporates similar strokes to those of the Swedish modality, but delves deeper into soft tissue, introducing cross-grain pressures to extract embedded muscle knots and break apart adhesions.
“Forget about a chiropractor already … you need a real doctor.” Jon Schaier knows his patients are often told this by concerned friends and family. In fact, he himself was told this by his family when he herniated a disc in his lower back and felt pain so excruciating that everyone advised him to go in for surgery immediately. But he followed his instincts and saw a chiropractor, who managed to completely erase his pain without performing surgery, prescribing drugs, or forcing him to be carried everywhere on a litter.
That’s why Schaier believes in the healing powers of chiropractic so strongly. In 1992, the doors opened to Western Branch Family Chiropractic Center, a place where he could prove to his patients that chiropractic can effectively relieve pain. There, Schaier and his team educate patients about inflammation—the main culprit for back and arthritis pain—its causes, and its damaging effects on the body. Treatments such as cold-laser therapy and massage sessions target the spinal column, back, and neck and pair with diet and nutrition counseling to prevent future debilitating pain, whether a result of aging, sports injuries, or furious games of slapjack.
The 60-minute Royal East West massage uses herbal compresses imported from Thailand to soothe sore muscles, relieve physical tension, and melt stress into a puddle of biodegradable papier-mâché. One of Touch of Asia's licensed, certified therapists will apply the steamy compresses directly to your skin, warming your postureplace while arresting delinquent muscles in rundown parts of town. Stressed backs will swoon in euphoric bliss as knots, spine tangles, and pains melt like Frosted Flakes drowned in milk.
