The licensed and insured massage therapists at My Magic Hands vanquish tension and soreness from bodies of virtually every age, from infants to seniors. Before kneading out localized knots with focal-point therapy or ranging over the entire back with long Swedish strokes, the staff listens carefully as clients describe their particular issues or how they fell asleep on a pineapple. Unlike many massage offices, My Magic Hands accommodates parties of six people or more for actual parties, be they bachelorette celebrations or birthday fetes, during which the staff massages each guest.
With two separate studios—one equipped with nine poles for exotic dance classes and one reserved for fitness classes—Pulse Dance & Fitness Studio facilitates an atmosphere of ease, enjoyment, and confidence. In the pole studio, instructors lead women through the basics of pole dancing during the introductory class, and ramp up the raciness in French Kiss Chair Strip Tease classes. Abs N Bootie and Hip Hop Cardio classes in the dance studio turn fitness into a fun and rhythmic dance romp. And before or after classes, students can spend some time socializing in the Pulse Ultra Lounge, cooling down with a smoothie or perusing the in-house lingerie store.
Despite what his official title may indicate, Dr. Thomas Stetson does a whole lot more than tend to achy spines. In addition to traditional chiropractic care, Stetson’s practice, Columbia Family Chiropractic, runs a maximized-living clinic that educates patients on achieving overall wellness. The practice’s manual adjustments offer immediate relief from chronic woes, and at-home exercises aim to swiftly tame pain like a lion trainer who gives good hugs. Taking care one step further, Dr. Stetson also helps his patients augment their diets to regulate their systems and decrease the chances of encountering repeat issues.
The mechanics at Cycle Center outfit bike enthusiasts with custom equipment fittings, expert tune-ups, and a rolling stock of more than 500 bicycles dispersed between the company's two locations. In the interest of both safety and performance, the team makes sure all bikes are carefully assembled and tuned up before the rubber meets the road. They also stock an impressive lineup of apparel and gear, from air pumps that keep tires aptly inflated to helmets that keep heads more protected than a presidential motorcade covered in mosquito netting. In-stock brands include Fuji, Cannondale, and Dahon, a manufacturer renowned for its revolutionary folding bikes.
Certified Rolfer Kimberly Richey eases bodies into balance during 75-minute Rolfing sessions. As opposed to massage therapists, who drive tension from muscles, or chiropractors, who realign spines by advising patients to sleep on a ruler, Richey’s practice focuses on the fascia, the soft tissue that surrounds muscles and connects organs to one another. Direct pressure coupled with guided movements work to release tightness within connective tissues, restoring proper movement to the body as a whole. Continued Rolfing sessions can result in improved posture and mobility, reduced pain and stiffness, and increased circulation.
New Life Fitness World motivates calories crusaders with personal trainers and more than 140 hours of group classes. Launch fitness plans in a one-on-one training session before bounding into any of the four locations' exercise courses, such as cycling, Zumba, and Piyo, a combination of yoga, Pilates, and trick yo-yoing. After land-based laps around the indoor tracks, or the aquatic equivalent in the indoor heated pools, fit fiddles can indulge in a sauna steam, a hot-tub soak, or a tanning session. Towel service and locker rooms facilitate transitions out of the gym, while childcare frees parents from the stress of pushing strollers while jogging on the treadmill.
