Dawn Roth, owner of Head to Toe Bodyworks Massage and Esthetics works on client Bekki Mangum at her new location inside the Milmore Building.
BLACKFOOT â€” Dawn Roth at Head to Toe Bodyworks Massage and Esthetics is taking her business to a whole new level, literally.
She is moving uptown from 1265 Parkway to 45 North Broadway up the wide stairs of the eclectic old Milmore Building into a room with brick walls and exposed wooden beams. The environment is calming as the smell of essential oils and sounds of soothing music prepare you for a relaxation. Bekki Mangum has been a client since Roth became certified. Mangum said of the new location, "I am excited to help revitalize downtown Blackfoot."
As a Nationally Certified Massage Therapist, Reiki Practitioner and Esthetician, Roth is able to provide the entire "spa experience" many of her clientele desire. From head to toe - inside and out -Roth's training can adjust energy, eliminate stress and give skin a youthful glow.
"Some people think of massage as pampering and can't justify the cost or time. Massage is more for healing and total body wellness." Roth said of why massage is important in health maintenance. Experts estimate that upwards of 90 percent of disease is stress-related.
"Massage is a tool used to manage stress which leads to less anxiety, more energy and better circulation." said Roth. Many of Roth's clients come to her seeking pain relief from arthritis and fibromylagia.
Roth recently became certified in esthetics, adding skin care to her regime. "Women love their face. It is a huge opportunity to provide that service." said Roth "With the sun and skin cancer you have to take care of yourself."
Being central to downtown Blackfoot, Roth encourages local business men and women to take advantage of the location. "A full massage only takes an hour." she said. For people more on the go, Roth provides a massage chair to work the head, neck and back. That can be done in as little as 10 minutes.
Roth offers full body waxing, facials, hot stone therapy, aroma touch, reflexology, medical massage, mud wraps and so much more.
"I trust her." said Mangum "In massage that is important and she's fabulous!"
Beyond the exceptional quality of Roth's work the prices for services are also reasonable. "If I can't afford to pay itâ€¦ I can't expect other people to." said Roth.
