Candace and Marc Beringer, L.M.T. have opened Northern Arizona Therapeutic Massage Center in Cornville. The business is located at 10990 Cornville Road in the Thistle & Thorn Plaza.
"We're both trained in medical message therapy," Candace said. She has 25 years experience, and Marc has 10 years. They offer massage for therapy or simply for relaxation.
"We do some rehabilitation work," Marc said.
Candace said that includes pain and injury rehab and also sports injuries.
Some of their specialties include medical myofascial release, stress and pain relief, hot and cold hydrotherapies, aromatherapy, lymphatic drainage, hiatal hernia relief and TMJ.
They also offer relaxation massage treatments for individuals or couples. "We do couples side by side," Marc said.
Candace and Marc also teach massage techniques. "We do teaching classes to teach couples how to massage each other," Marc said. "We really like to pamper our clients."
They also are set up for "out call" therapy for patients who cannot get to the center. "I have several patients who are non-ambulatory," Candace said. "I've been going to their homes for years."
The couple has been in practice in Sedona and the Verde Valley for 18 years.
"We offer 20-minute (no-charge) initial interviews so people can meet us, see our facility and, most of all, see how we can help them," Candace said. "We can do full evaluations, and we can give reports to doctors' offices."
Marc said they do not accept insurance. "So we work on a sliding scale for people who are on a fixed income."
With Candace and Marc both having some special areas of expertise, they can cross reference their clients to each other.
Although Candace and Marc can accept walk-in clients, they prefer to work by appointment.
"We're here 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.," Candace said.
