Licensed massage therapist Kimberly Collier channels more than 800 hours of training into kneading out bothersome knots. After she studied holistic-healing techniques at the Healing Arts Center, she opened Intuitive Healing Arts to bring harmony to minds, bodies, and spirits.
She helps bodies tap into their innate healing abilities through soothing modalities that range from Swedish to deep-touch and myofascial release massage to Reiki and transformational breath work. The latter uses breathing techniques to stimulate circulation and improve well-being.
The licensed massage therapists at Studio E Massage use the healing powers of bodywork to untie tight muscular knots and sideline tension. Guests can request a soothing Swedish massage to promote relaxation or a firmer deep-tissue massage to dismantle lower-layer aches and stubborn land-mine tattoos. Specialty massages for expecting mothers are also available.
Dr. Tobin Lingafelter treats back and neck pain with a strategic combination of chiropractic care and detoxification services. With the Solo dome system, clients can detoxify and be relieved from pain using safe, far-infrared heat. Radiant heat penetrates the skin during each 30-minute session, leaving clients with a natural warmth akin to sunbathing or being under a pile of polar bears.
The name Spoil Yourself, Inc, is more than just a suggestion—the staff here considers it good advice. Here, the massage therapists also count massage instructors among their ranks, making the team able to give clients just the customized and relaxing kneads they came for. Body wraps are another specialty here, helping people hydrate, relax, and not have to buy a separate mummy costume for Halloween.
A diagnosis of chronic migranes in 1985 began Elaine Moranville’s search for a way to transcend the limitations of traditional medicine and trigger inner healing with a pill-free approach. Her investigation led her to reflexology, a foot-massage technique that relieves tension and clears blockages throughout the body by stimulating the 7,200 sensory receptors in the nerve endings of the feet. Now a graduate of the Healing Arts Center School of Massage, Elaine maps out the pathways to self-healing with targeted foot treatments, including energy-balancing reiki sessions, and Kansa Vatki, an ancient Indian technique that harnesses ghee’s heat-storing power. Elaine also mends stressed muscles with traditional massages, which incorporate Swedish, deep-tissue, and hot-stone techniques to ease soreness and heat bowls of posttreatment mulligatawny.
Each massage therapist at Massage Works averages more than seven years of experience, which they draw upon to assuage muscles, knead away tension, and lower blood pressure. Massage styles range from hot-stone massage, which uses warm basaltic river rocks to soothe aching joins and induce relaxation, to sports massage, which helps athletes recover from injuries, hard workouts, and long periods spent sitting perfectly still on cereal boxes. Other wellness services include paraffin hand treatments and myofascial release, each aimed at helping bodies feel healthy, happy, and free of stress.
