Ayurveda is a holistic medical system designed to balance the body and promote physical, spiritual, and emotional well-being. Sound Shore Ayurveda & Wellness center’s practitioner, Manjula Paul, comes from a family of vaidyas, or doctors, for the royal family of South India, and she began studying the family trade at the age of 17. Her ayurvedic treatments include chakra balancing and nasya, a natural reliever for congestion, allergies, and sore sinuses. To complement her traditional practice, Paul also offers facials, microdermabrasion, and massage therapy.

To restore balance to their clients' body and minds, the team at Parapsychology & Wellness Center draws on many disciplines, including reiki therapy, aura purification, and astrology. Staff members also perform many types of readings. For instance, they might use tarot cards to look 6–12 months into the future, draw on numerology to reveal lucky numbers, or administer a character reading to help clients learn more about themselves, like whether or not they can actually lick their elbow.
Soothing music and soft lights reveal The Yoga Sanctuary as just that—a safe and peaceful place where guests can cast stress aside. The studio's nationally registered instructors weave their global teaching experience into each asana as they strive for—and teach the importance of—inner peace and tranquility. They work individually with guests of all ages and fitness levels, unlike the NFL and most quilting circles. With this inclusive approach, the instructors help clients unite mind, body, and spirit in a wide selection of classes, strengthen cores with Pilates exercises, and also teach postures for beginner, intermediate, and experienced students. To further the restorative effects of yoga, the studio also hosts yoga therapy sessions to help alleviate such health issues as back pain and insomnia.
The Yoga Sanctuary's onsite massage therapist intuitively customizes her kneads and strokes to reduce stress and fatigue. This can also improve joint flexibility so that guests may easily slip into complex postures or cast-iron wetsuits.
