Owner Chris Richmond had one goal: simple holistic health care. That's why he engineered Awaken For Wellness to have a diversity of holistic health offerings under a single roof. In the comfort of a private room, clients can find relief from body tension with chiropractic treatments, massage, or retreat into a private infrared sauna to promote detoxification and blood flow. Awaken also offers nutrition counseling and wellness coaching to answer those difficult questions, such as "am I hungry" or "am I bored?" and "what if my moustache wants to train for a marathon?”
Awaken for Wellness also offers massage therapy services and sauna services. These other offerings and services are through independent businesses located inside Awaken for Wellness.
The bodywork experts at Serenity Massage pamper clients with an array of massage modalities that each have their own unique healing properties. Sports massage targets an athlete?s overused muscles or old jai alai injuries, whereas prenatal massage helps mothers-to-be find relief from their heavy load. Japanese shiatsu incorporates focused finger pressure to banish muscle knots, and Hawaiian lomilomi uses the therapist's hands, forearms, and even feet to facilitate healing. Traditional Swedish massage relaxes muscles with smooth, gliding strokes, and cranial-sacral therapy drives away stress by manipulating the bones in the head and spine.
As a registered nurse, Charolette Letourneau used to see the effects of stress and muscle tension firsthand, inspiring her to improve lives and pain in a holistic manner. Her career change proved somewhat prophetic, as the mainstream medical world has since come to embrace the benefits of massage as preventative healthcare.
Today, Heil draws on her own medical background to ease aches and chronic tension with various massage modalities. Inspired by ancient Japanese techniques, her shiatsu massage targets specific accupressure points to alleviate insomnia. Her Swedish massage, on the other hand, warms muscles with a combination of gentle strokes and hot meatballs.
At Body Kneads Massage, seasoned and certified therapist Tracy Filipa performs an array of massages, from soothing Swedish to intensive sports massages. She eases aching necks using time-honored Japanese shiatsu techniques, and works to prevent over-contraction in muscles with an innovative Kinesio taping treatment. Committed to fostering long-term health and wellness, Tracy provides her clients with exercises and tips for keeping away muscle aches and pains.
