Angela Gorman has amassed a formidable list of certifications in the holistic-health industry after 14 years. She has been trained to soothe physiques with 28 different bodywork modalities, aided by her experience as a personal trainer and an anatomy and physiology instructor at Florida Metropolitan University, now known as Everest University. With such a broad wellness background, Angela was in prime position to develop Sacred Body's credo of customer care, which focuses a menu of treatments on restoring each individual's mental and physical balance.
Angela's team of massage therapists, yoga instructors, and life coaches subdue stressors by customizing their services to accommodate every client. The massage menu splits its offerings into corporal treatments—such as deep-tissue work—and energy therapy, such as reiki or kneadings with hot batteries. Faith in organic health has inspired the center's signature facial, which combines honey and fruits with herbal infusions brewed onsite to bring out the skin's radiance.
