Q&A with Shali Sanders, Owner
Sometimes the little things make all the difference. Do you bake any supplementary services into your main services?
The owners of NELO are both medical professionals who understand the body inside and out. They address each person's questions and concerns with knowledge and compassion.
Everyone is treated with respect and sensitivity regarding the procedures they are most interested in purchasing.
Do you agree with the phrase "beauty is on the inside?" Why or why not?
Absolutely. Beauty is on the outside too. Beauty is every one's unique vision. NELO strives to address the personal needs and choices an individual wishes to make to enhance a sense of self-esteem and self-empowerment.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
Most individuals looking to have cosmetic procedures done have a level of uncertainty and vulnerability. The owners of NELO understand this and strive to engage each client in an atmosphere of trust and reliability.
Licensed massage therapist Phutsog Wangamo has spent more than 25 years practicing traditional Tibetan medicine, an art that first appeared millennia ago and later assimilated elements from the Greek, Ayurvedic, and Chinese healing traditions. Along with graduates of the Shang Shung Institute School of Tibetan Medicine, Wangamo founded a healing center where she could share this ancient healing art with others.
Today, Shang Shung Tibetan Healing Center continues to earn new converts with a holistic approach that focuses on balancing the mind and body. The center’s wellness professionals address problems that range from stress and insomnia to the aches of old age. A personalized health consultation benefits first-time patients, recommending dietary and lifestyle changes based on individual factors. The wellness expert might also suggest kunye massage, a Tibetan healing art that incorporates medicinal oils, hot stones, pressure-point therapy, and assisted stretching. For a more general overview of holistic health, sit in on one of the center’s monthly public talks. These informal gatherings center on topics such as pediatrics in Tibetan medicine and how to prevent aging without freezing oneself in carbonite.
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
In my practice, I provide clients with a professional and positive healing environment. My goal is to ensure every client leaves feeling comfortable and relaxed. The body is able to heal itself in astonishing ways. I am simply a vessel to help the body along on its healing journey.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I was in a minor car accident and had received treatments, including some massage modalities, which sparked my interest. During these sessions I had the benefit of pain relief and increased range of motion. Massage improved my wellbeing, I was immediately inspired to provide the same gift to others.
What do you love most about your job?
I love being able to provide people with an outlet to alleviate their pain and tension and to reduce stress.
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer?
"The best massage I have ever had!" -Betty P. "I have never felt so relaxed!" -Teresa S.
The roster of modalities that Ted Schiff leads in his massage workshops casts a wide net, much like he has done with his career. He possesses multiple certifications in specialties that include Thai yoga massage and reflexology, a modality that he's also taught to aspiring therapists. He's also experienced in medical massage, helping alleviate chronic pain and provide relaxation to oncology and hematology patients. Ted calls upon this varied experience when working with his clients at Valley Massage Therapy. He tailors each session to his client's needs, whether they're just looking for an hour to relax, want to find relief from knotted muscles, or need inspiration for an onstage role as a wad of bread dough.
