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.

Kristen Lamb, LMT
Licensed massage therapist Kristen Lamb studied an array of bodywork techniques at the Institute for Therapeutic Massage, including Swedish and deep-tissue massage, reflexology, and myofascial release. Unsurprisingly, she offers those same techniques as well as relaxing add-ons such as aromatherapy and salt scrubs at her massage studio. Benefits of the services can include everything from reduced anxiety to increased circulation of fun cells.
