Nestled in Green Gables Farm, Whole Body Studio and Spa nurtures holistic wellness with relaxing yoga classes and supportive personal-training sessions in a tranquil spa setting. Within the serene yoga studio, pupils fluidly glide into seated, reclined, and standing postures during stress-melting Hatha yoga as soft lighting radiates from sloped ceilings and wooden pillars maintain stoic tree poses. Students may also contact Whole Body Studio and Spa to enroll in specialized classes, such as therapeutic prenatal yoga or the Mom and Baby Yoga class, which whimsically whisks new mothers and infants through rejuvenating asanas.
Lorraine, a certified reflexologist since 2007, approaches healthcare from the ground up, focusing on the soles of the feet to treat a range of chronic health conditions. Under the premise that nerve endings on the foot correspond to every organ and gland in the body, Lorraine applies strategic pressures to heels, toes, and arches to relieve conditions, such as stress, arthritis, and plantar fasciitis. At the start of treatment, clients sink into a zero-gravity chair while Lorraine massages the feet. Then, using her thumbs in a rapid inchworm motion, she “thumb walks” up and down the foot, clearing away toxins and painful memories of stepping on pies.
