Thrive! Wholistic Wellness Center
At Thrive! Wholistic Wellness, Jaime and Craig Alcone use alternative sciences, such as kinesiology, reiki, and channeling, to reduce and help eliminate ailments of the body and mind. Jaime draws from her knowledge of biology that she gained while earning her degree from the University of New Mexico as she leads her healing hands over areas of the body in need of positive energy. Craig, meanwhile, believes that diseases are the body's way of communicating that it needs attention, and he therefore focuses his efforts on allaying chronic illnesses, such as arthritis, allergies, and cancer.
To complement their healing focus, Jaime and Craig tout the effects of aromatic essential oils. Their studio makes extensive use of dōTerra’s product line, which they teach students to combine and use adeptly during regularly scheduled workshops. Thrive is also a center of learning where clients can discover to use meditation to heal themselves after a particularly rough workweek or cage match with an alligator.
