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!
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Professional sessions will be customized to your needs using modalities such as Deep Tissue Sculpting, Sports, and Swedish; as well as Prenatal massage, if applicable. Clients will direct conversation level and aside from checking in on pressure and comfort, the sessions may be quiet and relaxing.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Courtney received her Bachelor's degree with a focus in Health and Fitness from Purdue University prior to attending school for bodywork training. Over four years of certified experience in luxury fitness resort as well as chiropractic clinic settings ensure effectiveness and care.
What do you love most about your job?
Courtney has had a genuine passion for wellness, massage therapy, and making others feel better from a young age. It's incredible that 60 minutes is all you may need for reduced tension, pain, and stress. It's an honor to be trusted as a provider of physical and emotional healing.
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer?
Many clients requesting bodywork have been held back by physical tension and/or stress. It is deeply rewarding, within an hour of meeting a new client, to receive feedback that he or she has reduced pain and stress, as well as increased flexibility and a relaxed, calm state of mind.

Q&A with Anna Diaz, Proprietor and Massage Therapist
Besides making clients happy, what do you like most about your job?
Our company motto is, "Put your mind and body at ease." I love having a client-centered practice and not a menu-driven company. Each session puts the client front and center. From the arsenal of my education, I am able to best serve the client with clinical work, energy work, guided meditation, and massage.
What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a client?
At the end of a massage, I always see if my clients are "fluffy," [which is] when the skin is glowing, and it looks like blood is flowing back into their face. I guess the best reaction I've ever gotten is that dazed look and a "Wow."
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
The body cannot relax if the mind is preoccupied by the day's events. We specialize in soul, jazz, and Brazilian playlists, and a customer can create their own playlist on 8tracks.com.

It took seven years of living with the chronic aches of an old sports injury before Dr. Sean Miller agreed to visit a chiropractor. This experience exposed him to an entirely new approach to health care and he was inspired by the way in which chiropractic aids the body's natural healing capabilities instead of relying on prescription medications and invasive procedures. After that initial appointment, it only took six months before Dr. Miller enrolled in a chiropractic college.
Dr. Miller now shares his passion at Go Chiropractic, using modern diagnostic technology—including digital x-rays—and his extensive training to help others. Treatments focus on the structure and alignment of the spinal column, and aim to locate wayward vertebrae that may be interfering with the healthy function of the central nervous system. Hands-on adjustments then shift these vertebrae back into position and alleviate any strain that this imbalance may have placed on the spinal joints. In addition to helping improve mobility, chiropractic care restores healthy communication from head to toe, which allows the body to more efficiently recover from the pains caused by injuries, stress.
Additionally, Go Chiropractic features a team of massage therapists and nutritional counselors. By working directly with Dr. Miller, these practitioners are better able to help clients find relief through key lifestyle changes.
