Visitors to Grassroots Wellness Co-op can start a journey toward health with help from an on-staff aromatherapist, sport specialist, advanced therapies specialist, spa specialist, and certified nutritionist. Oils, lotions, sprays, solid perfumes, and bath products are custom-made for clients, and can be added to massages for extra tension relief.
Owners Andrea Brown and Jael Cox helm a team of certified and licensed massage therapists, aestheticians, and nail technicians who balance bodies and promote wellness with holistic spa services. The skilled professionals tailor each skincare, nail, or body treatment to the client's needs and the demands of their overprotective invisible friends. Clients nestle into private treatment rooms decked out in olive-tinged modern country décor, with rustic hardwood floors, antique wooden cabinets, and walls swathed in contrasting floral, striped, and paisley-patterned wallpaper.
Products from the boutique such as dermalogica products, bath and beauty products, massage oil candles, and handmade jewelry keep bodies intact at home, which augments its cottage-like aesthetics with local art.
Licensed acupuncturist and herbalist Cindy Conlin is sensitive to the pain people can feel. Her experiences interning with Survivors of Torture, healing patients with post-traumatic stress syndrome, and continuing her educating in pain-management training have given her a unique insight into holistic healing. At Nature’s Touch Healing Center, Cindy employs natural, drug-free remedies to aid visitors with everything from relaxation to treatment of depression, chronic aches, and infertility. She consults with clients at the start of each visit, discussing their health history, symptoms and expectations, and the root of the word “stethoscope.” From there, she maps out the most appropriate treatment plan. Cindy’s methods often enlist not just acupuncture, but any number of her specialties in cupping, medical essential-oil therapy, Chinese herbal therapy, and nutrition counseling to encourage the body’s natural healing processes.
At Sorelle Spa Salon, custom facials infused with botanically derived Aveda and Bumble and bumble products target everything from blemishes to aging skin. Nail technicians, meanwhile, glaze fingertips with OPI or Shellac polish after dipping hands and feet in paraffin and exfoliating them with a gentle scrub. Sorelle Spa Salon's massage therapists prefer to relax tense back muscles with hot stones, a safe alternative to hot coffee mugs.
Driven by an innate desire to help heal those in pain and to educate, licensed massage therapist Sarah Taylor committed herself to the bodywork field. At Taylor Made Energetics, Sarah uses many different bodywork techniques to relieve a number of symptoms ranging from headaches to diminished joint range of motion and mobility.
Sarah relaxes clients as she floods bodies with warmth during hot-stone massages, which she only offers during colder months. In a tranquil setting of candles, soft lighting, and soothing music, Sarah performs the hot-stone massages with skill and dexterity, allowing clients to fully relax and enjoy the experience.
