After graduating from Fort Wayne’s own Center for Vital Living, Vicki Salzbrun opened her massage-therapy practice at the stunning Lotus Yoga, Wellness, & Gallery. With her 800 hours of massage study and 200 hours of training as a yoga instructor, Vicki fit right in with the center’s cooperative of wellness professionals, all of whom specialize in fields such as personal training, chiropractic care, yoga, and massage.
The huge, airy studio—whose walls hold numerous pieces of eclectic contemporary art—continues to serve as the home of Vicki’s massage-therapy business, Full Circle Wellness. Balancing this business with full-time studies at IPFW has taught her to attend to her own wellness as she shoos away stressors that arise from work and school. She imparts these stress-management skills to clients in wellness assessments that analyze the body and mind to help develop achievable lifestyle goals. To further demonstrate her breadth of knowledge, Vicki also heals energies with Japanese reiki therapy, guides students down meditative pathways during private yoga sessions, and periodically challenges her fellow yogis to interminable games of Twister.
