Karen Kraft has been a practicing reiki master for more than a decade, but the discipline's holistic view of bodily energy has been helping people for generations. Karen's bouts with cancer and 12-year experience working in the disability field have bolstered her innate sense of empathy for her patrons' own ailments. As the owner of ACC Natural Healing & Wellness, she translates this dedication into her therapeutic treatments. Rather than simply quieting symptoms, she prefers to relax the mind as well as the muscles, tailoring her treatments to address the needs of each client. Karen's treatments address numerous everyday health issues, battling the pain and discomfort of everything from anxiety and depression to chronic pain. More than anything, though, her intuition and experience help her ease knotted muscles and connective tissues imbuing clients with a sense of whole-body well-being.
Erin Beatty studied at the Lauterstein-Conway Massage School in Austin, Texas, where she fine-tuned such techniques as Swedish and prenatal massage, hydrotherapy, and advanced physiology. Her bodywork pilgrimage then brought her to Kailua, Hawaii, where she rounded out her expertise with lomi lomi and chi nei tsang, ideal for opening up tense muscles and under-ripe pineapples. These techniques also taught her to present a clear space for clients to release stress and negative energy, helping to unwind and heal the mind and body.

New Life Fitness World motivates calories crusaders with personal trainers and more than 140 hours of group classes. Launch fitness plans in a one-on-one training session before bounding into any of the four locations' exercise courses, such as cycling, Zumba, and Piyo, a combination of yoga, Pilates, and trick yo-yoing. After land-based laps around the indoor tracks, or the aquatic equivalent in the indoor heated pools, fit fiddles can indulge in a sauna steam, a hot-tub soak, or a tanning session. Towel service and locker rooms facilitate transitions out of the gym, while childcare frees parents from the stress of pushing strollers while jogging on the treadmill.
