Massage by Dawn

When life gets stressful, Dawn Hooper is ready to make sure things don’t “rub you the wrong way.” A licensed massage therapist, she is marking the first anniversary of her spa Sept. 20.

Hooper, who has 11 years of experience, offers a variety of treatments and massage styles at her spa, including Swedish, deep tissue, hot stone and Himalayan salt stone massages.

Another type she offers is Thai massage, which she compares to assisted yoga, allowing her clients to obtain deeper stretches by holding positions longer.

Other services at the spa include cupping therapy, cranial-sacral therapy, detox slim wrap, lymphatic drainage and ear candling.

“Ear candling is thousands of years old, and the benefits are amazing, especially with allergy season, she said.

She also offers sugar scrub body polish and organic bronzing services.

Hooper said she is always looking for new treatments and products to provide her clients with fresh experiences. Among her newest offerings is a sacred Sedona clay wrap, which features clay mud applications over the entire body, a heated wrap and scalp treatment, with oil applied afterwards for rehydration.

Hooper came to Boulder City three years ago, moving from North Las Vegas. She said she fell in love with the community while driving through it to get to Lake Mead.

The first year anniversary celebration is planned from 5 to 7 p.m. at the spa, 1400 Colorado St., Suite B.

For more information, call or text Hooper at 702-570-1399 or visit her website at www.bcmassagebydawn.com.
