Licensed massage therapist and founder Janine Cormier Fleming designed Holistic Massage Training Institute's 600-hour program in an effort to educate aspiring massage therapists. After 9 or 12 months, the program qualifies students to sit for certification exams, which can open the door to an occupation such as licensed massage therapist or registered massage practitioner. Supplementing the standard program, community seminars show pupils how to administer couples' massages along with specialized techniques such as acupressure and reflexology. Yoga classes unwind student tensions in unison, and continuing-education courses illustrate bodywork techniques from India, Thailand, Hawaii, and Narnia.

Even as an undergraduate student in exercise physiology, Stephanie Reid disagreed with the idea that bodily healing can be achieved only with pills, specialists, and invasive treatments. Holding a firm belief in the body’s ability to heal itself, she worked toward her certification in naturopathy and founded Your Healing Place. Today, she combines modern technology with a holistic approach to search for root causes behind maladies. In one-on-one visits with patients, she answers common questions and discusses symptoms before sharing recommended readings and evidence from similar cases. Inside Your Healing Space, smooth jazz meanders through the reception area, where a bubbling water fountain calms nerves with a sound like a scuba diver reading haiku. The smell of lavender wafts through each room, emanating from fresh plants picked in an outside garden. In a separate area for children, little noses press against a fish tank while patients walk into a treatment room filled with salt sculptures, carved onyx apples, semiprecious stones, and crawling vines. Stephanie’s team of therapists uses a battery of assessment tools to seek out tissue anomalies at the cellular level and target uncovered issues with ultraviolet light, homeopathic foods and supplements, and five massage modalities. Stephanie says that these treatments have gotten her calls from medical doctors, who were curious after witnessing their ability to improve well-being.

Pain and discomfort can manifest in many forms?migraines, stress and anxiety, irritated skin, fatigue, and more?which means that treatments need to be able to adapt to each person's particular needs. This is especially true at 28th Street Wellness, where Claire Pallandre and Liz Ulrich use acupuncture and massage therapy, respectively, to help clients find relief from the chronic pains that plague them. Regardless of the modality, each of the two approaches shares the common goal of treating visitors from a holistic perspective and strengthening mind-body connections while addressing specific symptoms. Claire's five-element acupuncture sessions help jump-start the flow of stagnant energies by using precisely placed needles to facilitate the body's natural healing capabilities. When it comes to massage, Liz draws from a range of modalities that includes everything from Swedish and deep-tissue techniques to myofascial work and activated stretching. Each of these modalities has a specific purpose, whether it involves soothing tightly knotted muscles near the surface or finally figuring out how to unfurl that bow tie from last year.
