After years of soothing stiffened muscles in her native Alaska, licensed massage therapist Efrosinya Z. Vshivkoff brings her talents and nimble fingers to Natural Remedy Massage to help others achieve higher states of health and well-being. Efrosinya customizes each of her five massage modalities to address individual aches and pains. Yoga joint-movement techniques stroke away the rust in arthritic knees and elbows, deep-tissue pressures squeeze away toxins and adhesion, and baby massages relax infants stressed from sitting in stroller traffic jams. After each treatment, Efrosinya takes the time to discuss diets, stretches, and at-home exercises that clients can practice on their own to further decrease physical pains—her website is filled with helpful lifestyle tips on the topic.
At Tan Republic, the staff doesn't just sit by while you tan—they advocate for responsible tanning. They carefully oversee the use of the Mystic Tan and VersaSpa spray-tanning booths as well as the high-pressure tanning beds, controlling clients' exposure to UV rays and cosmetic tanning compounds. They also ensure that every tanner uses FDA-compliant protective eyewear, and prevent any one visitor from wearing multiple pairs and making everyone else feel uncool. They even enhance their clients' tans with six varieties of lotion, each designed to produce a different intensity of bronze.
