Tell us about your business.
The intention of my work is to follow the recipe of Ida Rolf, who is the founder of Structural Integration/Rolfing. The goal of SI is to align the body into vertical and horizontal planes by slowly manipulating the fascia layer.
What sets your business apart?
There are many different modalities within the massage profession and in my personal experience working with the fascia creates the greatest overall, long-lasting change. It is a slow body stretch in which no lotions or oils are used.
What inspired you to start or run this business?
I have been blessed with the hands and spirit of a healer and by giving the gift of this type of massage, I can give of myself for the greatest good!
What is your most popular offering?
Connective Tissue Massage (CTM) in which I work on the most superficial layer of the fascia as I move broader bands of that fascia. This is a great place to start for the client because it introduces the SI work more gradually, but I would always recommend the client evolve to the SI ten series.
What kind of training/expertise do you have?
After massage school four years ago I had 600 hours. Then, I went on to train in Miami for two years running and I have accumulated 1,030 hours with my sole intent being the study of SI. My heart is truly wrapped around this study. It is a magnificent modality and I'm quite proud to be in the lineage of Ida P. Rolf.
Tidal waves of soothing music and aromatherapy scents wash over private rooms lined with cream and tan hues, wherein The Awakening's staff helps clients to detoxify with colon hydrotherapy, a cleansing tradition that has been in use since the days of ancient Egypt. The treatment's warm, gentle infusion of water into the lower intestines flushes out everyday toxins, such as pesticides, carcinogens, and ingested pencil shavings, and it may result in improved health and increased energy.
Salon Luxe is a fashion-forward hair salon staffed by a team of hair whisperers who are committed to leaving clients happier than the day they were hatched. Each haircut (a $40+ value) begins with a thorough consultation where hair owner and hair cutter can braid their respective visions into a sleek, intertwined concept. The collaboration results in a pleasing new 'do that is further enhanced with a partial highlight (a $75+ value) or full color (a $55+ value) using natural, 99% plant-derived Aveda products. To complete the look, a deep-conditioning treatment (a $25 value) is richly applied to nourish and moisturize stiff head bristles, leaving them as peppy and bouncy as a cheerleader wearing flubber shoes. The trio of services is performed in the salon's aesthetically pleasing, turquoise-tinted interior that features comfy chairs sprouting from clean wood floors.
