Karen Gray, an extensively trained and nationally certified massage therapist, kneads tense muscles with a variety of massage techniques that reduce discomfort and relieve stress. Before undergoing 60-minute sessions, twined torsos sit down and speak with Karen to discuss any persisting aches, daily stresses, previous injuries, and conspiracy theories. With her breadth of personal knowledge, Karen crafts a customized massage to address her customers' concerns and give them a soothing massage session. Depending on the results of the consultation and the pull of the moon on the tides, locked muscles may receive a traditional, relaxing Swedish massage, a thorough deep-tissue hand pressing, an energy balancing via gentle reiki hand placements, or a combination of these and other massage methods.

After Shannon Anderson graduated from Davenport University with her massage therapy certification, she went on to receive certification in cancer care at the Ben Benjamin Institute. Armed with this knowledge—along with seven years of experience—she kneads muscles with therapeutic, sports, and pregnancy massage, as well as trigger-point therapy.
At Peace Body Therapy, certified massage therapists consult with clients in order to learn which muscles hurt and what the clients wish to get out of the session before they customize the massage. They use manual palpation to evaluate stress and misalignment in the muscular structure of the body and encourage clients to vocalize when the pressure is too intense or too light. Their specialty massages improve health in several ways at once, increasing flexibility, releasing chronic stress, and facilitating unhindered blood flow.
Whether recovering from an injury or simply maintaining good health, patients can rely on Thatcher Chiropractic Clinic, PC to help restore bodily balance.

Cheveux Hair Salon's nail-detailing doyen, Melissa Goepfrich, pampers and revitalizes fingers and toes with a six-part spa mani-pedi. The process begins with an aromatherapy soak, which soothes nails' nightmares of being nibbled and supplants fears with dreams of looking lacquered. Then a cuticle conditioning and exfoliating scrub evicts impurities and buffs finger and toe façades to a dazzling sparkle. Hot towels envelope extremities in a terry-cloth embrace, releasing them just in time for a deep massage to ease away the daily stresses of work and high-pressure thumb wars. Finally, Goepfrich will awaken brush from bottle and grant nails three wishes in the form of an OPI base, color, and topcoat.
