The treatments at Women's Center for Holistic Healing rely only upon the healer's hands and exhaustive knowledge of the body. For instance, craniosacral therapy eases tension, pain, and disease with precise hands-on manipulations. Similarly, holistic chiropractic treatments begin with spinal adjustments, but they also carry into a client's home life. The chiropractor prescribes meal plans and exercise regimes to augment in-office healing. In addition, the center offers testing for food sensitivities and intolerances.
Licensed massage therapist and skincare expert Irina Ionina had always dreamed of running her own spa where she can heal others while fostering relaxation and well-being. Having opened Ganesha Spa, she’s achieved that goal, and now spends her days practicing eight modalities of massage, such as shiatsu and hot stone, to relieve muscle tension and alleviate stress. She also rejuvenates skin with anti-aging treatments such as chemical peels, microdermabrasion, dermaplaning, micro-needling, and nonsurgical face-lifts, and hosts kundalini mediation classes each Monday from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Heather Soss isn't just licensed to massage—she also boasts national certification, fluency in reiki techniques, and a membership with the American Massage Therapy Association. With these tools in her belt, she mends muscles and fosters personal growth. Before Heather opened her own studio, she immersed herself in the spa industry and spent two years working at a massage school. With that experience under her belt, she founded Health & Harmony Massage and Wellness Center, a peaceful retreat surrounded by a bike-path-equipped patch of nature, where clients can relinquish anxiety and heal.
Her team of licensed and trained therapists continues their education to bolster their menu of techniques, which includes Swedish, deep-tissue, and prenatal massage. While their nimble fingers knead sinews with Somasilk massage cream, the therapists can cover clients' eyes with lavender-eucalyptus eye pillows. The team also furnishes table warmers and heating pads that help loosen gnarly tissues. In addition to releasing calming hormones, such as serotonin and dopamine, massage can reduce cortisol, the hormone responsible for stress and the birth of future terrible NFL Draft picks. Heather's team also offers acupuncture treatments and spa parties.
At Therapeutic Acupuncture Wellness, the group of licensed acupuncturists address ailments of every stripe with an array of ancient healing arts.
