Instead, she views each treatment as an opportunity to promote natural, holistic healing for the mind, body, and spirit. During her career, she's had the opportunity to collaborate with physicians and chiropractors, and now she welcomes clients to her practice at Bella Bodywork, offering massages that help alleviate pent-up tension while gentle music plays in the background.
Swedish techniques increase circulation and soothe aches near the surface, and deep-tissue pressure focuses on the knots caused by injury or chronic stress. Additionally, Susan can accentuate the therapeutic benefits of these massages by offering add-on treatments such as organic sugar and sea salt body scrubs or by incorporating aromatherapy oils in scents like tea tree and mint or lavender and cedar.

Gary Hopkins can divide his mid-20s in two parts: the time before he discovered self-healing, and the time after he discovered self-healing. Before, overwhelming stress and overworking caused him to suffer from anxiety, insomnia, spinal misalignments, and gout. Then, he started meditating, practicing tai chi and energy healing, and taking natural supplements. Not only did these practices help remedy his ailments, but they also led him to a new career as an intuitive healer. Continuing these studies into his 30s, he added such holistic healing methods as Thai massage and reflexology to his regimen.
For more than 10 years, he’s shared his knowledge through a private practice and at Light Path Discovery Center. He is dedicated to helping others conquer physical, psychological, and emotional issues with carefully honed skills and several bodywork methods he developed on his own. For those unable to visit him personally, Gary has penned two books— The Master Within and Axiatonal Integration —that guide readers as they attempt to unlock their happiness, which is usually kept in a safe and buried under their childhood home.

When his painful plantar fasciitis made surgery an almost certain necessity, Doctor of Chiropractic Carl Rafey sought help from a chiropractor.
