Every local community has a story, a history, and a unique personality that cannot be replicated. This is often thanks to specialized, small-scale businesses, like this one, which contribute to a neighborhood’s distinctive character and promote a thriving ecosystem in their community. Small, independent businesses offer diverse products and services, fostering economic resilience by removing the local economy’s dependence on a single industry. When you buy local, you build local, and deepen your connection to your own community.
As a result, patronizing a local business like this is an act of community building. Check out their website to learn more about the local experience you can discover today.

Signature Massage Therapy
Soft lighting and soothing music set the stage for a relaxing massage at Signature Massage Therapy. Massage therapist Ann works oil or lotion into skin using a variety of techniques. Flowing strokes calm tense muscles in the back and legs, whereas more localized kneading tends to stubborn knots. Her massages—including deep tissue, therapeutic, and hot stone—work to help clients suffering from lack of energy, poor circulation, anxiety, and sleep issues. Ann also offers a special prenatal massage that relieves back and hip pain in expectant mothers.
