To fulfill her mission of physically and spiritually transforming the individuals in her community, licensed massage therapist Sarah Cheiky transformed a high-ceilinged warehouse space into a health-and-wellness oasis. She and her staff splashed the rooms with sunny shades of yellow and orange, hung artwork from local artists on the walls, and warmed the floors with intricate rugs, successfully creating the holistic haven known as The Studio. Within this cozy domain, the team leads a variety of restorative sessions that focus on whole-body wellness, including yoga classes taught by certified instructors, massage sessions performed by licensed therapists, and traditional energy work to keep chi in check and life force from accidentally turning into magnetic force. Clients put aside the dowsing rod to seek their center during guided meditation classes, and footbaths and infrared saunas draw out toxins from all areas of the body. After emerging from private treatment rooms, clients can refresh themselves in the showers and don superhero costumes in the changing rooms before returning to the real world.
The staff and partners of Emerald Development and Economic Network (EDEN), Inc. believe that all people need a home. As part of this mission, they maintain a collection of more than 90 properties, group homes, and affordable permanent-housing units across Cuyahoga County for more than 3,500 people with low incomes, a history of homelessness, and qualifying disabilities. In each property, residents maintain the freedom and independence necessary for them to be a part of the greater community, while still receiving access to support services within their building. EDEN property managers regularly work with partner agencies, such as Veteran’s Administration and AIDS Taskforce of Greater Cleveland and Mental Health Services (MHS). In time, tenants can take strength from their newfound stability to get a full-time job, reconnect with family, overcome addictions, or stay off the street.
