Patricia Scheierman

New stylist at Studio B

Studio B recently added another stylist to its line of hairdressers.

Elaina Kimbrell transferred to the Paul Mitchell focus salon, at 706 N. Beeline Highway, at the beginning of October, rounding out a group of four stylists/colorists.

Kimbrell attended beauty school in the Valley three years ago and has worked at salons around Rim Country.

Originally, from San Diego, Kimbrell moved to the Valley where she lived for 10 years. Looking for a change of pace and scenery, Kimbrell moved to the Payson area two years ago.

Kimbrell said she was inspired to begin beauty school after her own hairdresser encouraged her to.

“I always asked her questions (when she did my hair) and she suggested it,” she said.

Being a stylist has been the perfect fit for Kimbrell, who loves being creative and working with people.

“Every day is different. There is never the same person or hair.”

She said she works hard to give people what they want so when they leave the salon they have exactly what they asked for.

“It is all part of good communication.”

Massage therapist brings skills to Payson

From firefighters to office workers, anyone with aches, pains or knots can benefit from the healing properties of therapeutic massage.

For licensed massage therapist Patricia Scheierman, helping others heal and improve their overall well-being is a life-long passion.

After working in the medical field for the last 22 years in the Valley, Scheierman understands how the body works and how various conditions and diseases affect it.

Scheierman recently started working at A Simple Touch, 407 W. Frontier St., with owner Lori Vario. Scheierman is available for appointments early evenings Monday through Friday and all day on the weekends.

Being licensed in several modalities, Scheierman offers acupressure, reflexology, myofascial, cranio/sacrial, trigger point, deep tissue, lymphatic drainage, shiatsu, Thai, and sports massage, to name a few.

“You can get pain relief, improved circulation flow, de-stressed and re-energized (with massage),” she said.

You may have already seen Scheierman around town, as she provided chair massages at the Payson Farmers Market at the Community Presbyterian Church over the summer. To schedule an appointment, call (602) 330-4926.
