Whether you’re looking for a relaxing massage or are finally ready to get that permanent makeup treatment, Callahan Wellness is ready to cater to your health and beauty needs.
While the business only opened in February 2022, Founder Mackenzie Callahan is no stranger to the world of massage therapy.
“When I first went to massage school seven years ago, I really had one goal, and that was to help people with pain or stress through positive touch,” Callahan says. “That has been the biggest honor of my life.”
Callahan Wellness is a one-woman show with Callahan taking on roles from massage therapist and service provider to accountant and janitor. There’s one additional role she takes on that is a key component of the business: teacher.
“Education is absolutely essential for the work that I do. I want to make sure that I am providing the best service, always growing and adapting to best meet the needs of my clients,” Callahan says. “There are so many different medications or conditions that could be contraindicated when working in the skin, and I want to make sure I can advise my clients of the best treatment course for their specific needs.”
In order to cater to client needs, every initial appointment at Callahan Wellness starts with a complimentary consultation to identify key wellness goals. Whether a client is dealing with injury or anxiety and depression, specific massages can help tremendously.
Sessions range from 60 minutes ($90) to 120 minutes ($180). Techniques include cupping therapy, Swedish massage, clinical deep tissue, LomiLomi, and Gua Sha. Following the massage, clients can end their session with a paraffin hand treatment and a cold-pressed juice shot of ginger and turmeric.
Brows That Say “Wow!”
After deciding to get her eyebrows microbladed, the resulting confidence boost inspired Callahan to take on an apprenticeship for cosmetic tattooing, eventually adding it to her offered services at Callahan Wellness.
Brow treatments include Fusion Brows, Microblading, and Powder Brows ($400). Touch-up appointments are also available from two to 24 months after your initial appointment. These permanent cosmetic treatments can be preserved longer with proper aftercare.
All treatments are carefully curated by Callahan, and there are even more on the horizon. She looks forward to including CBD-infused massages as well as new cosmetic tattoo procedures in the future.
“My favorite thing about Callahan Wellness is my clients! I would not be here without them and I really can’t say how much I love learning all their unique stories,” Callahan says. “Some of them I have been treating for almost seven years, which is so wild to me.”
