Trained massage therapist Sharon Madison incorporates more than 20 years of experience—including time spent working for the University of Minnesota Athletic Division—into each treatment she performs at Heart and Soul Bodywork. Offering custom massage, energy-work, and spa-detox treatments, she is well versed in myofascial-release, trigger-point, and hot-stone therapies as well as acupressure and reflexology. Madison also brings bodies back into balance with the reinvigorating powers of reiki energy work, and sports massages reduce the pain and swelling athletes may experience after doing arm curls with the Stanley Cup.

Owner Chris Richmond had one goal: simple holistic health care. That's why he engineered Awaken For Wellness to have a diversity of holistic health offerings under a single roof. In the comfort of a private room, clients can find relief from body tension with chiropractic treatments, massage, or retreat into a private infrared sauna to promote detoxification and blood flow. Awaken also offers nutrition counseling and wellness coaching to answer those difficult questions, such as "am I hungry" or "am I bored?" and "what if my moustache wants to train for a marathon?”
Awaken for Wellness also offers massage therapy services and sauna services. These other offerings and services are through independent businesses located inside Awaken for Wellness.
Massage Xcape's massage therapists practice a variety of massage modalities: they're skilled at prenatal, deep-tissue, and shiatsu techniques, for example. But their main specialty is Swedish relaxation massages designed to put the body and mind at ease. Patrons can also add on pampering details such as hot towels or soothing aromatherapy scents, or unwind in the Lexington Avenue location's sauna. As an added convenience, the practice holds extended evening hours.
A background in dance gives nationally certified massage therapist Cade Holmseth in-depth knowledge of the human muscular system. This comes in handy during custom treatments, in which he uses a variety of techniques—including shiatsu therapy—to get to the root of clients' ailments and usher in long-term health and well-being. He also taps into his training as an aerialist to tailor exercise plans, and advises clients on which essential oils can bolster their health.
Board-certified dermatologist Dr. Crutchfield and his team of friendly, experienced technicians work to purge pudge with the CoolSculpting system, a noninvasive liposuction alternative designed to contour bodies. Exhausted exercisers vexed by their lingering back fat, love handles, bra-area bumps, or padded marsupial pouches can evict freeloading fat during the one- to two-hour sculpting session. A pop of intense cold from two cooling panels crystallizes fat cells so they can be naturally flushed from the body over the following two to four months. Patients can surf the office's WiFi or peruse a magazine during the procedure, which poses little to no downtime with results visible for most patients in as little as three weeks. The majority of patrons require only one treatment per area, and weight can be kept off long-term by eating right, exercising regularly, and avoiding funhouse mirrors. Some patients experience mild redness, tingling, or bruising posttreatment, which is temporary.
Certified hydrotherapist and Peaceful Waters owner Tammy Fischer is certified in a variety of natural therapies that can detoxify the body and lead to better overall health. She has handpicked the latest equipment and products to facilitate each client's visit, including the comfortably cushioned, gravity-fed Angel of Water colon-hydrotherapy system. Fischer applies nine different therapeutic-grade essential oils by Young Living during raindrop therapy, aiming to purge the spine and feet of bacteria and viruses. She employs a steam tent to draw out impurities from the skin and also uses the IonCleanse ionic bath, which is designed to detoxify the body via the feet. During the footbath, patrons relax in an iJoy robotic massage chair, which impersonates a human being and inspires joy just like Anderson Cooper.
