In Tibet, the word "bardos" means "an interval between two things," an escape from external pressures. Certified massage therapist Jamie LaNeave helps clients suspend day-to-day cares through relaxing, holistic hands-on therapies. Before she became a massage therapist, LaNeave learned the strengths and limitations of the body's muscles and tendons during 25 years as a professional dancer. Armed with this understanding, she sees massage therapy as a way to help the body overcome chronic pain through physical manipulation of soft tissue. All of the practitioners are also trained in neuromuscular therapy and and MediCupping, which can help ease chronic back pain. Most importantly, LaNeave identifies each patient's issues early on and helps build a plan to help them with whatever treatments are necessary. Bardos Massage and Wellness also offers a variety of detox treatments, like far-infrared sauna therapy, as well as raw food nutrition counseling, targeting symptoms depression and chronic pain disorders.
You can opt for a traditional massage at CMG Wellness if you'd like, but first take a look at the service menu. It might just convince you that hot lava shells are good for what ails. The shells, heated and filled with herbs, and supplemented by the guided pressure of a massage therapist's hands, help coax tightness from the muscles and ease pain associated with tension or injury. Or perhaps the bamboo stalks will tempt you with their stress-deflating strength. Therapists trade in their hands for firm bamboo stalks whose firmness is utilized to ease knots from the muscles and get clients feeling as loose as a prizefighter's tooth after the final round.

Chanti became licensed and now offers a slate of traditional and exotic treatments all designed to bolster well-being and help clients overcome physical and emotional stress.
