Licensed massage therapist Debbie. Q. Allen’s menu of 10 modalities reflects her encyclopedic knowledge of her craft. She could tell you, for example, how Swedish massage’s roots lie with a Dutch therapist who named each of the basic strokes after French words. Of course, she’d only go into that if it helped a client relax. Otherwise, she’s content to do the listening, letting clients’ muscles show her the origin of every ache. She then draws upon specialized techniques—such as deep-tissue and trigger-point therapies—in order to ease muscles bound into Celtic love knots.
In addition to helping guests attain relaxation, her massages may impart other benefits such as accelerating healing, improving range of motion, and boosting feel-good neurotransmitters such as dopamine and serotonin.
As the name implies, Beyond Basic Massage offers more than just typical, by-the-book massage treatments. Massage therapist Rory Adams strives to exceed even the highest of expectations while doling out full 60- and 90-minute massages. After clients slip into a relaxed state, Rory goes to work kneading and treating backs. His Swedish massage focuses on stress relief, and deep-tissue treatments zero in on hard-to-reach muscle aches. Rory is also proficient in sports massage, a technique that tackles stiff musculature, and injury massage for those who want to target painful muscle groups after recklessly attempting to put stockings on a horse.
For Doctor of Chiropractic Sophie Jacob, chiropractic medicine goes beyond the bones—it’s in her blood. Jacob grew up watching her father care for patients in the field for 30 years, deciding early on to follow in his footsteps and become a second-generation chiropractor. She originally helmed two practices in her hometown of Quebec City, Canada, before moving to sunny Arizona, where she performs treatments ranging from adjustments and custom orthotics to a variety of detoxification services.
Perhaps her most important mission, however, is assisting patients with their weight-loss and fitness goals. During an interview on KGUN 9's The Morning Blend, Dr. Jacob admitted to struggling with her own weight as a child, exemplifying empathy with regards to the physical and emotional impact of excess poundage. She has designed an alkaline-food-based weight-loss program to restore bodily balance via detoxifying protocols, supplements, and hormone testing. Dr. Jacob has also treated professional athletes and has competed in several athletic events, including triathlons, swimming matches, and marathons to the moon and back.
The talented massage therapists at Zen Beauty Spa help frazzled muscles relax and rejuvenate from deltoid to tendon. Appropriate for active athletes, the sports massage heals and prevents future injuries by targeting problem areas, such as tennis elbow and pickle-ball knee, with stimulating strokes that encourage blood and lymph circulation. Stress melts away like a snowman on a spit with the Swedish massage, complete with smooth gliding strokes, kneading, friction, and stretching. During the deep-tissue massage, a muscle mediator unties knots and dissolves tension with strokes similar to Swedish techniques, but with more intense pressure. Neuromuscular therapy calms spasming muscles, while a lymphatic massage boosts the immune system by ridding the body of harmful toxins and ghosts of Columbus Days past. By flooding nostrils with the scents of essential oils, the aromatherapy massage sends subliminal messages to the limbic system such as "relax" and "snap, crackle, pop."
