Massage by Galen's licensed therapists tailor each massage to their client's needs. This might mean more focus on the back, neck, or legs if that's where the issues lie, or a blending of different massage styles in order to address multiple concerns at once. The staff here is well-versed in multiple styles of bodywork: Swedish for stress, hot stone for tension, and sports massage for injuries. Other treatments include Thai massage and reflexology, as well as portable chair massages, which the staff can bring to treat sore backs at any workplace, festival, shopping mall, or limbo tournament.
The practitioners at Shiatsu Reflex Spa, now under new ownership, know moves from so many different massage modalities, you'd swear they had different sets of hands for each one. Depending on your consultation, therapists might recommend a shiatsu session, which activates and relieves points of extreme tension with pressure from the fingertips. They might also go with ashiatsu, the "barefoot" technique that finds therapists actually walking on clients' backs. Those in need of simple relaxation would benefit from aromatherapy or Swedish massage, which was the only form of medical treatment covered under the Vikings' insurance plan.

Linda Evans wields the scissors behind Sassy Shears at The Salons at Bella Suites, continuing the work has occupied her hands for more than 30 years. Although she snips away anywhere from 1 to 15 inches of hair on any given day—leaving clients lighter and more stylish—her signature service is color. She prefers Paul Mitchell color products for their thorough coverage, and they pair nicely with her preferred moisturizing conditioner from It's A 10. While she works, she provides clients with complimentary beverages to sip on, as well as the occasional bit of sample product to take home and experiment with by making one's pet shih tzu resemble Johnny Depp as closely as possible.
