Jamie Damiani received her massage therapist’s license in 2006, fulfilling a dream that took hold when she was just 16 years old. What began as a childhood fascination with anatomy turned into a clear career path once Jamie realized how much she enjoyed helping others in need. Today, Jamie combines her passions for nurturing and science to break down bodily gridlock and get every client feeling loose, relaxed, and healthful. To accomplish this, she offers four distinct styles of massage. Swedish massages bring about relaxation and improved circulation; trigger-point massages combat pain and tension; and sports massages, designed for athletes, help increase flexibility and minimize injuries sustained on the court or during a celebratory postgame square dance. Jamie also offers prenatal massage to bring physical and emotional relief to expectant mothers, and helps partners relax and reconnect during couples massages.
The experts at Healing Laser Centers can ease pain without a single touch. That's because they harness the healing power of the cold laser, a device that sends low levels of energy deep into strained and injured muscles to jump-start the healing process. In each 5- to 20-minute treatment, staffers suffuse the body with this powerful light energy to relieve pain caused by work stresses, athletic endeavors, or attempts to give itself a back massage. Many patients feel nothing during the treatment and often feel progressively better for days afterward. To enhance the technology's muscle-mending capabilities, the center also keeps massage therapists on staff for hands-on tension relief.
Licensed aesthetician Yvonne Harper scrapes away blemishes using a mechanical exfoliation wand during a series of 45-minute microdermabrasion treatments. During the treatment, aluminum-oxide crystal particles burnish the face's surface to remove outer layers of skin and reveal the healthier, more active skin cells drinking whey protein underneath. A diamond-tip polish then regulates texture across the face, resulting in smoother, more luminous skin. The procedure stimulates the collagen and elastin production that can help minimize fine lines and wrinkles and firm up sagging skin around the jaw, eyes, and nose. As patients undergo their multi-session treatment courses, sun damage and blemishes gradually fade from view, revealing complexions as even as a pillow fight between two black belts. Yvonne recommends scheduling treatments once a week. Check the FAQ for information on preparation and post-treatment care.
