The aim of the practitioners at Acupuncture & Chinese Medical Center is to better the health of their clients. They use acupuncture and massage therapy to halt muscles spasms, renew energy levels, and heal injuries. And though acupuncture and massage instill a sense of relaxation on their own, the practitioners add to the tranquility with soft music playing in the room or seashells to hold up to your ear.
Clients reign supreme at Elements Therapeutic Massage. A massage at this studio becomes a custom sojourn through relief and relaxation, spurred on by a unique level system that ensures every sore back and tight shoulder receives the care it needs.
During a consultation with their therapist, clients choose from four levels of massage, beginning at Level 1, which is a light, relaxing treatment, and going up to Level 4, a deep massage designed to undo knots and kinks. Once clients have decided on a level suitable to their needs, therapists blend techniques drawn from modalities such as deep-tissue and Swedish into a revitalizing massage that could calm a jack-in-the-box.
Since each therapist's specialties are different, clients are paired with the practitioner whose specialties meet their needs. Prenatal, hot-stone, and sports massage are a few examples of specialty massages offered by the versatile and experienced bodyworkers.
Licensed massage therapist Kelle Staszak understands that muscles are like tiger stripes: no two sets are the same. That's why she tailors relaxation, deep-tissue, and lymphatic massage to each client's need—whether they're looking to sooth a sore spot or just lie around with their shirt off for a while. During 30-, 60-, or 90-minute sessions, she keeps lines of communication open, adjusting and modifying techniques to locate muscle knots and stay well within clients' pain threshold.
With haircare products by the likes of Goldwell Color and Color Glow, the team at Steven Edwards Color Group aims to erase all bad hair days on clients’ calendars. Whether delivering a quick trim, a drastic makeover, or a pink ombre, each stylist nurtures locks with the same passion and professionalism as the CEO of Hugging Puppies Without Smiling, Inc. They can even repopulate strands on barren scalps with noninvasive, virtually painless laser hair therapy treatments. Though their main focus is hair, the beauticians also perform relaxing massages, doll up nails, and refresh skin with facials powered by Glo Therapeutics products.
Inside the private treatment rooms at Natural Therapeutics, Rachel Warnock spends her days energizing clients with holistic ayurvedic services. As a trained ayurvedic wellness consultant with a master's in vedic science, she is well equipped to design personalized treatment plans to address a variety of health concerns, from easing digestive pains to revving up metabolisms so they run faster than a G4 jet fueled by espresso. Depending on each client's issues, these treatment plans can include diet suggestions, cleansing detox teas, and herbal remedies, which Rachel retails at the center.
At RAIN Massage and Wellness, licensed therapist Leah gives clients her specialty deep-tissue massages. The customized technique can help loosen muscles that have been pulled, strained, or knotted from a Twister tournament. Leah also uses trigger-point and myofascial-release methods, and clients can get extra soothed with hot-towel add-ons.
