During the MSA food allergy test, patients cradle energy-measuring weights in each palm, analyzing meridians, or channels of energy, that pulse through the hands’ acupressure points as well as spark dead car batteries.

While working in the medical field for 13 years, Jamie VanDam discovered alternative healing techniques that she found less aggressive than traditional Western methods. Her fascination with balancing chakras and unblocking meridians to soothe both the body and mind led her to pursue level-three status as a reiki master. With a blend of reiki and cranio-sacral therapy, she flushes out bodily toxins and alleviates back pain, headaches, and stress by applying gentle pressure to troubled regions. She also helps clients find inner and outer peace with raindrop therapy, essential oils, and ear candling. When she isn't remedying discomfort, Jamie is teaching classes in the healing arts and donating her time as a Hospice volunteer.

Sheila Laing believes that spa services should support her clients' whole-body health. To bring this belief into fruition, she takes a holistic approach to her aesthetic and massage-therapy services and employs organic or all-natural products. She also enriches her practice with a background in herbology and postgrad education in aesthetics. Each of Ms. Laing's facials is customized in order to take into account changes in weather, stress, diet, or skin cells' favorite death-metal band. Every facial incorporates a cleansing, exfoliation, and mask, but also may include skin polishing or extractions. In a low-lit, off-white room, clients can also stretch out on a cushioned massage table, where their muscles unwind beneath the touch of hot stones and targeted therapy.
