Chiropractors at Specific Chiropractic Centers coast to coast get their clients walking tall with advanced spine-straightening technology. They pinpoint spinal abnormalities with an advanced thermographic scan that sends heat cascading through problem areas, allowing the professionals to make an informed diagnosis. From there, they deploy their chiropractic method to fix upper-cervical kinks and restore neural functionality. The goal is to perform as few adjustments as possible both to respect clients' schedules and to carve out more time for practitioners to work on their puppeteer careers.
Operating out of Curl Up and Dye, stylist Taylor Doyon offers a respite from bad hair days with a repertoire of face-flattering cut and coloring services. Taylor utilizes product brands, such as Paul Mitchell, Redken, and Matrix, to cultivate subtle or bold highlights. Or, she can help clients get ready for a special occasion with updo hairstyles and shellac manicures that imbue long-lasting color and shine. Clients are also free to explore the salon's other specialties, which include waxing, Eurobronze tanning, or feather hair extensions, which are a growing trend amongst bald eagles.
Licensed massage therapist Laura Holt relieves stress and muscle kinks with 30- and 60-minute massages. During a Swedish massage, Laura bathes backs in nourishing oils before employing techniques such as rolling, kneading, and effleurage, a circular stroke made with the palm, in an effort to relieve pain, decrease stress, and enhance the flexibility of phantom limbs. Laura's fingers dive deeper into musculature layers during a deep-tissue massage, which aims to release built-up toxins as well as to relieve tension caused by misalignment, lingering injuries, and taxing repetitive motions. Like challenging an elephant to a game of Twister, the deep-tissue session commonly results in soreness, and Laura suggests drinking plenty of water after the treatments to flush out toxins. Groupon clients may upgrade from a 60-minute massage to a 90-minute massage for an extra $30.
After performing therapeutic bodywork treatments for five years, certified massage therapist Rachel Larrivee felt inspired to create an upscale alternative to massages at day spas and chiropractic offices. That inspiration grew into a setting stocked with innovative equipment, premium skincare products, and upscale linens. Within the studio, Rachel kneads away tension with Swedish, deep-tissue, and stone treatments, while making expectant mothers more comfortable with body pillows and prenatal techniques. She also lends her services to corporate or private settings with chair massages and softly whistled lullabies.
The professionals at A New Leaf Salon & Spa provide beauty and massage services in a peaceful surrounding. As natural light pours into the large windows, stylists remove split ends and add vibrant color to hair. Nail technicians meticulously groom fingers and toes, and skincare specialists cleanse pores and remove dead cells to reveal glowing skin. After clients enjoy a glass of wine or warm cup of tea, massage therapists and reiki practitioners diffuse tension and improve range of motion with reiki sessions, deep-tissue work, or heated-stone massages.
As a doula and a massage therapist, Rebecca C. Goodwin is in a unique position to soothe the aches associated with carrying a little one. She helps to oust the muscle pains of pregnant women with prenatal massages and consults with expectant mothers to address concerns and offer birthing guidance. Once babies are born, she administers calming infant massages that ease the rigors of infancy, such as colic and having to learn the difference between a dog and a donkey dressed up as a dog. Rebecca's repertoire includes several other modalities. Her sports and deep-tissue massages target chronic aches, and her reflexology treatments manipulate pressure points on the feet to alleviate tension in other body parts. She has also mastered acupressure, myofascial release, and neuromuscular and reiki therapies.
