Founded by acclaimed self-healer Meir Schneider, PhD, LMT, and approved by the American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA), the School for Self-Healing welcomes students searching for the secrets of holistic health and rehabilitative practices. At the all-day regenerative massage workshop, students learn how to maximize the effectiveness of self-delivered therapies to help bone health and nerve regeneration while avoiding occupational hazards common to massage therapists. Instructors work with 22 students in a small-group setting, leading lessons on assuaging muscular pain and fatigue while sharing industry tips on how to prevent repetitive strain injury or calm massage chairs that have suddenly gained self-awareness. Workshops run from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m., with one hour reserved for lunch and contemplative rumination.
Pilates has done well as an exercise modality, offering participants the opportunity to stretch and sweat, without needing the range of motion or Zen-like focus of yoga. As if to prove the point, Core Pilates and Physical Therapy on 17th is always bustling with nearby locals looking to work through the typical Pilates routine. Of course, the busy look might stem from the diminutive class sizes (ten or fewer students per session) held inside this 2,000 square foot studio space. Spare and simply laid out, the healing vibe radiates throughout even the most basic cardio regimen, thanks in part to other options like restorative techniques and relaxing massage therapy.

They treat ailments such as eczema, sinusitis, and bloating, but for safety's sake, will not address substances that have been diagnosed as causing an anaphylactic reaction.
