The family-run operation offers a wide range of services in a warm, nurturing environment, and stands out for its extensive approaches to massage therapy.

They can definitely help their customers with the latter of these components. The staff helps locate the perfect vitamins, nutritional supplements, or protein shakes to meet specific health goals.

H3 Therapy's specialized hyperbaric treatment may be based on a complex scientific principle, but its main ingredient is simple: oxygen. First, the inflating chamber is infused with filtered air that pressurizes the immediate atmosphere. As the pressure increases, oxygen gently pushes its way into the client's bloodstream. According to the system's technicians, this oxygen boost helps the body heal and may even ease symptoms associated with autism, multiple sclerosis, and sports injuries. The chamber can be depressurized and opened from within, and it features a buzzer that occupants can push for help at any time. With these two exceptions, hyperbaric therapy is completely hands-free, so clients can spend the session winding down with a book or trying to connect with their spirit animal.
Over the past 15 years, licensed massage therapist Erin Childs has facilitated healing in clinical, spa, and private-practice settings.

Described by clients as having a strong, intuitive touch, Erin can calm muscles with long, flowing Swedish strokes, can access persistent pains with deep-tissue pressure, or can guide clients' limbs through yoga-like stretching and Thai acupressure techniques. And because she uses only vegan oils and creams, clients rarely leave the studio smelling of bacon.
