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.

After graduating from Iowa’s Body Wisdom Massage Therapy School, Carey Gaw further honed her kneading skills at Indianapolis spas and in-home appointments. These days, however, the licensed massage therapist calls the shots at Escape Massage Therapy LLC, her very own studio housed inside of New You Skincare and Massage. Of course, Carey’s customers are really the ones in charge, alerting her to whatever aches they’re experiencing, from lower-back pain to aches caused by pregnancy. With that info, Carey conducts 30-to 120-minute massages that incorporate modalities such as gentle Swedish strokes, deep-tissue techniques, or soothing hot stones.
