The entire staff at Zen Wellness Studio is focused on overall wellness, uniting mind and body in a search from peace. Lead massage therapist, Dr. Amy Emme, smoothes tension from muscles with a variety of massage modalities, including Swedish, deep-tissue, reflexology, and medical massage. Massages are designed to soothe aching muscles, as well as promote restful sleep, reduce stress-inducing cortisol, and decrease pain. Also at the center are certified hypnotists, reiki masters, and a health coach who advises clients on attaining healthy lifestyles and which color M&M has the least calories.
Integrative Medicine Center's Drs. A. Hanna and Lidia Okonski welcome clients in for a combination of spa services and holistic medicine. Dr. A. Hanna is board certified by NCCAOM in acupuncture and oriental medicine, and Dr. Lidia Okonski, who does not perform acupuncture treatments, is a board-certified psychiatrist. Focused on improving personal well-being and health, they center the center's holistic-medicine approach on acupuncture, homeopathy, and nutritional medicine, such as corrective diets focused on vitamins and not eating grapes realistically painted onto drywall. Their spa services, meanwhile, emphasize the external—the menu includes body wraps, facials, waxing, and aromatherapy.
Katie Romano Griffin began her health career as a nurse. After observing the powerful effects of hypnotherapy at the integrative medicine practice she ran, she believed she could make more of a difference in people's lives through working with the subconscious mind. Griffin embarked on a two-year study of hypnotherapy. She integrated her findings into a broader life coaching methodology designed to treat issues ranging from paralytic social anxiety to a fear of bridges.
During her healing sessions, Katie combines the breadth of life coaching with the depth of hypnosis. She examines the patient's life from infancy to adulthood with questions and mental exercises, while delving into the subconscious with the help of relaxation techniques that the patient can repeat at home. Through these methods, Griffin has successfully treated smoking addictions, issues with overeating, and stress. “It is amazing to see someone light up,” she says of her newly liberated patients.
In addition to helping people through one-on-one sessions, the Griffin reaches a wider audience as an inspirational speaker and an author.
