What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
MamaLacho's specializes in Neuromuscular Therapy, an amazing technique that helps to relieve pain as well as stress and tension. MamaLacho's also has an in-room play area for kids - for those times when you really need a massage but don't have anybody to watch your kids.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
My inspiration for
MamaLacho's is my kids. I needed a massage for an upper back spasm,
that was causing my eye to
twitch. But I couldn't get a massage appointment when I had childcare. I asked myself, " Why isn't there an appropriate place where I can take my kid and get the massage that I need?"
What do you love most about your job?
I love talking to people, hearing their stories, educating them on how their bodies work and how everything is connected. I love making a difference in peoples lives and helping them to live healthier more balanced lives.

Q&A with Ashley, Owner Holistic Health Practitioner
What’s your favorite part about your job?
I'm grateful to work closely with families and to see their progression and transition throughout the entire spectrum of preconception, pregnancy, labor preparation, and parenting experience. One of my favorite parts of my practice is the couples massage workshops I offer, especially the comfort massage for pregnancy & labor class. This class is a wonderful addition to the childbirth education or hospital classes that clients might already be taking. This 2 hour interactive workshop is a great way for couples to connect before the baby arrives, while learning creative ways to support their overall birth experience.
What steps do you take to make your clients feel at ease?
Every client enters our relaxing waiting lounge and receives an initial intake form and consultation before we begin. This allows them to provide helpful information to make their session as effective and enjoyable as possible. During the massage, there are special pillows set up for optimal positioning and comfort and I offer tips, stretches, and ideas to support the day to day pregnancy experience. I also encourage clients to communicate their specific needs, and to ask as many questions as they want. I'm happy to offer resources and referrals!
What else should I know about prenatal massage?
Prenatal Massage is offered throughout all stages of pregnancy, however style of treatments will vary based on how far along you are and your specific, individual needs. To accommodate clients coming in for labor preparation, initial prenatal massage sessions are usually scheduled before 36 weeks and often booked a week to two weeks in advance. Prenatal massage blends therapeutic and soothing massage techniques for overall relaxation and rejuvenation during this special time. Studies indicate that massage during pregnancy may reduce anxiety, relieve muscle and joint discomfort, and even improve and support more positive birth experiences. Many people describe feeling very connected to their changing body, growing baby, and a sense of overall well being when receiving consistent and therapeutic massage during the transitional time of pregnancy. As you move closer to full term (usually the two weeks before or after your estimated due date) we offer our signature treatment called The Labor Prep Acu/Massage. This treatment gently supports and encourages the process that is naturally occurring in the body as it prepares for labor and birth. Visit our website to learn more!

Age Spots: Shade from the Sun
Some facials can help fade age spots. Learn more about how those spots appear with Groupon's examination.
Sun spots. Liver spots. Solar lentigines. No matter what you call them, those flat gray, brown, and black spots on the skin come from the same place: space. Specifically, the sun. All skin color is the result of a pigment called melanin produced in the epidermis. Each person's skin produces melanin at certain rate, but ultraviolet rays from the sun accelerate that process, which creates a darker, tanned appearance. Over years, melanin can become particularly concentrated in one area and clump together to form age spots, typically on the hands, face, shoulders, and other areas regularly exposed to sunlight. (Freckles are produced through a similar process, but their formation is much more strongly predicted by genetics and by whether you're dressing up as Raggedy Ann for Halloween this year.)
Age spots are ultimately harmless, but there are many ways to treat their appearance. Prescription-strength and over-the-counter creams use retinol or hydroquinone to make the spots gradually fade over time. Laser treatments target melanin-producing cells directly, and microdermabrasion and chemical peels remove the top layer of skin altogether, taking discoloration with it. People also seek out cryotherapy to freeze the offending areas, destroying the excess pigment as the skin heals.
The meteoric growth of Massage Envy has led to more than 800 spa locations and a healthy share of limelight from printed media buzz to promotions on
The Ellen DeGeneres Show and
The Doctors . Its experts have kneaded more than 50 million backs using modalities that range from the gliding strokes of Swedish massage to the targeted pressure of deep-tissue massage. Although the spa treats a wealth of clients, each Massage Envy session is personalized to individual needs. While indulging in prenatal, hot-stone, or trigger-point-therapy massages, clients can also request the soothing mint and rosemary essential oils of aromatherapy or the addition of warming and cooling products that help decrease inflammation and ease pain.
In addition to staffing massage therapists, the spas employ skincare experts who wield Murad products for four kinds of facials. Clients can treat sensitive skin to mild exfoliation or opt for anti-aging facials with glycolic acid before attempting to order off the kids’ menu at a diner.
