The staff at Healing Arts Institute instructs aspiring therapists in body work that aims to eliminate pain from the center of the body. Anatomy and physiology classes, classrooms with full-length mirrors, and more than 1,600 square feet of space help interns learn body mechanics. A vast understanding of the body?s inner workings help them as they move from classroom study to the school?s onsite spa, where clients can schedule massages with them or with the school?s experts. Student interns complete over 200 hours of training, and while beginning interns perform gentle Swedish-style massages, more advanced practitioners can quell injuries with their handiwork. Regardless of style, all of Healing Arts Institute?s clients depart from the massage clinic feeling more relaxed than a sloth traveling through a speed trap.
Healing Arts Institute also has a community-acupuncture clinic where a licensed acupuncturist, not a student, inserts needles into several clients at once. Clients lie back in recliners and rest while the needles go to work. Because the acupuncturist can treat multiple people at a time and no private treatment rooms are used, community acupuncture costs less than private acupuncture. It is also the type of acupuncture commonly used in Asia.

At Healing Arts Massage Clinic, the study of massage therapy goes far beyond simple classroom work and hands-on practice. Here, instructors train the next generation of therapists using a multi-point mission statement, which lists goals including technological advancement, personal growth, and empathetic intuition alongside traditional lessons. Whether they're studying sports and rehab techniques, Eastern modalities, or traditional spa massages, students emerge well-rounded and ready to treat any client's concerns. This multifaceted training regimen also shines through in the clinic's massages; performed by the students themselves, each bodywork session soothes aching muscles while simultaneously helping aspiring therapists hone their craft
When she's trying to make someone relax, massage therapist Jenny Henderson doesn't stop at a simple Swedish, sports, or hot-stone massage. She supplements most of these treatments with sweet-smelling aromatherapy, plus optional add-ons. Two of these—a scented foot bath and reflexology treatments—pamper the feet. The remaining treatment, cupping, can stimulate circulation and the flow of lymph fluid using suction. For clients who prefer a less firm sports massage, Jenny also leads stretching-only sessions, which help them to become flexible enough to snap a football to themselves.
In her years as a massage therapist, 23rd and J owner Teresa Vega has not only perfected her technique, but she's honed her own signature massage style. She puts an extra-relaxing spin on modalities such as reflexology, hot-stone, Thai, and deep-tissue massage—Teresa complements every session with a bubbly footbath, a salt scrub, and hot towels. Outside of her massage offerings, Teresa also uses tattoo ink and a steady, artful hand to apply permanent eyeliner, lip liner, lipstick, and brow makeup. She'll even add a sassy beauty mark, or draw a pair of glasses so clients always look smart.
