Lilac Healing Center is staffed by a diverse group of trained therapists who improve their clients’ physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being. Founded by licensed massage therapist Kathryn McDaniel, Lilac Healing Center slowly grew out of a series of other businesses—what began simply in 2002 as a place where people went to get a massage became a destination for all kinds of healing services. Today, the staffers not only perform bodywork and therapeutic yodeling, but they also provide acupuncture, energy work, and custom vitamin programs. In addition, the center hosts a multitude of both private and group yoga, Pilates, and meditation classes.
Dr. Christopher Clarke and Dr. Jerry Lo have something in common that they use to identify with their patients: they both played multiple sports. Each doctor appreciates an active if not athletic lifestyle, and they use their chiropractic skills—along with educations in kinesiology—to help their clients achieve just such a lifestyle. By taking a “whole-person approach,” the duo seeks out any underlying causes of pain or other problems. Then, they happily tackle those issues with manual chiropractic adjustments, massage therapy, and therapeutic exercises. Dr. Clarke also creates custom foot orthotics that help alleviate knee and back pain—often the result of playing sports or trying to knee yourself in the back.
At Tennessee Massage Therapy, a massage is rarely just a massage. It's often accompanied by heated stones, hot towels, or aromatherapy scents designed to melt tension and anxiety. And muscles don't get all the attention; scrubs crafted from salt, sugar, or coffee slough away dead cells to promote soft and healthy skin.
