Since 2006, licensed massage therapist Mary Edwards has practiced massage therapy with a focus on women's health. She incorporates hot stones into all of her treatments, augmenting deep-tissue kneads or gentle pressure with relaxing warmth.
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
We offer acupuncture and massage, and our practitioner makes us stand out amongst the rest.
She is a licensed Acupuncturist and also received her MD in China. She has successfully treated thousands of patients and has developed additional expertise with infertility and reproductive issues.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Her passion and drive to help people be their best, and feel their best.
What do you love most about your job?
When I'm with a fertility patient from start to finish; Speaking with her for the first time about her body and goals, then hearing good news about a positive pregnancy test, and treating her throughout her pregnancy. Then finally, the day when she comes back to visit with her beautiful child.
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer?
I suppose anytime a patient and I are laughing about something is the best 'reaction'. Most people come in for medical issues, and our office can be quite serious at times, so anytime we get to talking and laughing means we have gotten close. We like to say, "Come as patients, leave as friends".
Licensed massage therapist Lindsay Keener has always wanted to help heal people in pain. That's just what she does these days in her studio inside the Sweat Box personal training gym, where Swedish, deep tissue, warm bamboo, Thai, and sports massage are a few of her specialties. One popular modality is her
myofascial release massage, which incorporates sustained pressure on connective tissue and muscles to relieve chronic pain and tension. Her prenatal massage combines well with a reflexology foot treatment to help clients achieve deep relaxation. Lindsay is also constantly learning new techniques to bring to the table, which she adds to her repertoire of
time-honored healing methods.
For a golfer, stiff muscles can mean the difference between an under-par round and an over-par round. Licensed massage therapist Michelle Turner ensures athletes are limber enough to hold the proper stance through her golfer-specific massages, one of several specialty modalities she offers at A Body True. She also soothes the aches and pains of expectant mothers, the elderly, and injured clients via specialized strokes, in addition to traditional Swedish massage and trigger-point therapy.
The stylists at Kenneth's Academy Hair Salon take a lot of pride in their work. And why wouldn't they? The company—which has 11 salons and three dedicated day spas in the Columbus area—is entirely employee owned, meaning the salon professionals have added incentive to ensure every cut, color, manicure, facial, and massage is performed flawlessly. Perhaps that's why the company has racked up numerous awards from both local and national publications.
Candace Lee-Staples dedicates her studio to the holistic practice of massage, embracing its therapeutic and relaxation-inducing benefits by offering an assortment of modalities. She and her team of therapists host consultations with each client beforehand, gathering details to plan personalized sessions. With the Swedish modality, they'll gently relieve pent-up stress and induce an inexplicable fondness for lingonberries, while targeting chronic back pains during deep-tissue and myofascial massages. They also offer sole-soothing reflexology treatments designed to cultivate total-body wellness.
