Holistic health specialist Laurie Vella imparts her training in a host of healing methods to promote patients' overall health and prevent future problems. After a 15-minute pretreatment consultation, clients embark on one of many nourishing services, such as acupuncture ($40 for 30 minutes), Reiki ($50 for one hour), or an aromatherapy massage ($40 for 30 minutes). Reward hands and feet for not switching places while you sleep with a reflexology treatment ($45 for feet, $35 for hands), or reset energy centres unsettled after a pogo-stick tournament with chakra balancing ($50 for one hour). Healing Hands Kingston also offers yoga, meditation, and life coaching, and consults with patients on healthy nutrition, beneficial herbs, and proper care of the funny bone.
Candles, plants, and flowing curtains channel a warm, relaxing vibe in Samatva Yoga's custom-built studios, where students of all skill levels practice ancient poses with a modern twist. To expose pupils to a range of yogic styles, more than a dozen seasoned instructors build an interdisciplinary class lineup that fosters experimentation and self-growth. The studio's signature classes stem from classical traditions such as Hatha and Ashtanga, whose poses and breathing exercises cultivate strength, flexibility, and focus. Many sessions take place in muscle-loosening 105-degree temperatures, which help pores eject body-bound impurities and books on tape lodged in the subconscious. In addition to teaching backbends and arm stands to groups, staffers guide individuals through assisted poses during Thai massages and dissolve energy blockages with reiki treatments. At the downtown Kingston location, a sauna invites students to unwind and detoxify after they stretch and balance in classes and workshops.
