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.

Sydney Shaffer LMT
Sydney Shaffer's diplomas and certifications hang on the wall, but make no mistake; her studio is all about the client. In a private treatment room surrounded by long drapes and dim lighting, visitors stretch out on a soft, padded bed and relax as Sydney kneads away their muscle tension and tests the karate-chop-action button on their back. Throughout the visit, she knows exactly where to apply strokes and pressure thanks to a pre-session consultation, during which she discusses specific problem areas.
