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.

Like any practitioner worth his or her salt, the massage therapists at Restoration Massage draw up a plan of attack before they make a move. Every session kicks off with an assessment to outline the source of each client's tension and pain. From there, therapists perform either a relaxing Swedish massage or therapeutic deep-tissue massage, working out trouble spots. Their Swedish massages ease tension with long, flowing strokes, whereas their deep-tissue massages knead away pain and loosen muscles with targeted pressure.
To further put folks at ease, massages take place on a plush treatment table in a tranquil room with neutral tones, flickering candles, and singing candlesticks. Patrons can even lock down a membership to get one 60-minute massage per month at a reduced rate.
