Grace, the licensed massage therapist behind Hands of Grace Massage, kneads away tension and pain in a studio located within a grand white house in Winston-Salem’s historic West End neighborhood. She also pampers clients with spa treatments such as skin-softening paraffin baths for the hands and feet, and sells organic bath and body products such as whipped body butter infused with coconut oil.
At Liringis Chiropractic’s two locations, Drs. Steve Liringis and LaTanya Bowman nudge pained physiques closer to ache-free existence with general chiropractic care, corrective exercises, lifestyle advice, and nutritional counseling. Dr. Liringis's first taste of chiropractic care came after he suffered a neck injury playing touch football and one of his teammates remedied the soreness with an adjustment. His continued fascination with the medicinal field led him to graduate from Logan College of Chiropractic in 1979 and found Liringis Chiropractic in 1980. Joining Dr. Liringis in his fight against chronic pain, Dr. Bowman calls upon her experience in sports medicine to help patients achieve optimal health without having to swallow pills, eat a bushel of apples daily, or devour an entire treadmill.
Aestheticians, stylists, and nail technicians all work together to beautify their clients’ bodies at Silk Road Salon & Spa. The stylists wield their shears to send locks of hair to the floor; below the hairline, aestheticians perform facials and peels that exfoliate the skin and erase traces of age lines or sun damage. With makeup application and eyelash extensions, the staff makes expressions shine as elegantly as Audrey Hepburn in her famed glow stick necklace phase. Massage therapists knead tension from muscles, and different body wraps further pamper patrons by moisturizing the skin.
Though challenged by his corporate job in payroll services, Doctor of Chiropractic John Stoetzel never felt passionate about it. But since attending the Palmer College of Chiropractic and opening his own chiropractic office, Dr. Stoetzel has hit his stride as he faces each day excited to treat his patients with treatments from spinal adjustments to traction to hydromassages.
Christina Barrett can do a lot of things, but there's one thing you'll never catch her doing: sitting still. Since her childhood days on the island of Nantucket, she has spent the vast majority of her time running, jumping, swimming, stretching, and training to keep her body in peak form. When she's not qualifying for the Boston Marathon or setting records in endurance races along the coastline of Nantucket, Christina draws on her vast knowledge to help other athletes—and nonathletes—stay in shape. Her signature training program is CoreAlign, which blends a variety of exercises to teach the body how to move correctly. With this in mind, it's fortuitous that Christina found Gray Chiropractic & Sports Associates. The health-and-chiropractic center provides her with all the resources she needs to heal muscles strained while jumping over hurdles or running into a wall painted to resemble a finish line.

Licensed therapist Autumn Pinnix believes that massages shouldn't be limited to times of great pain or stress. Even when you're at your best, she contends, a massage can help you stay at peak health. And not just any type of massage; Autumn's skills extend beyond the typical Swedish and deep-tissue techniques to include therapeutic modalities such as acupressure and myofascial release. To make each session as relaxing as possible, she personally blends all of her aromatherapy lotions by hand, making sure to leave out any chemicals that might make you grow a third shoulder blade.
