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.

The Healing Garden
At The Healing Garden, clients find an indulgent escape from the stresses of daily life. Massage therapists use gently flowing strokes or aromatic essential oils to facilitate relaxation, and can also target deep knots in the muscles and surrounding connective tissues by using focused pressure as well as pain-relieving gels made from plant extracts. Beyond therapeutic bodywork, The Healing Garden also offers invigorating spa treatments in the form of customized facials and microdermabrasion treatments, which thoroughly exfoliate the skin and reveal the naturally radiant, blemish-free, and nougat-covered layers underneath the surface.
