Certified massage therapist and healing artist Kerry Leigh traces her specialty in core synchronism back to the system’s developer, Robert Stevens, who first trained her to assist nature with techniques that promote inner-organism harmony. Kerry honed her massage skills as a backstage therapist at rock concerts, as the founder of the Odwalla Juice Company's on-site massage therapy program, and with the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health before starting her own practice at Actualize Your Health.

These days, Leigh and a team of therapists connect minds and bodies with cellular nutrition, aromatherapy with essential oils, and natural flower essences selected for their health-giving vibrational energy. Their background in athletics gives them a firsthand look at what hardworking muscles and spirits need to recover after grueling workouts or fisticuffs with inner demons.

For Christopher Hall, traditional medicine has its uses. But it also has its limitations. After Christopher watched his mother battle breast and ovarian cancer and overcome it through alternative forms of healing, he became determined to learn more, especially after he himself was diagnosed with testicular cancer. Along with his studies, his mother's tutelage helped him fight it without chemo or radiation treatments.

Natalie Hall also understands the limitations of Western medicine. When she was 18, she suffered from various health problems that no traditional treatment helped. She decided to turn to a kinesiologist, who recommended various supplements, and after two months, she saw her problems disappear.

The Halls have had so much success with natural healing that they opened Alternative Health Concepts in order to share their knowledge of herbology, kinesiology, and oxygen therapy with others. The kinesiologists and nutrition experts help heal bodies with a wide variety of therapies.

At Fountain of Health, massage therapist Rochelle Garcia approaches each client as though he or she was her first. That way, she's able to build a massage tailored to everybody's individual needs, enlisting techniques from eight different massage modalities. Swedish massage, for instance, resolves tension with mild, soothing strokes. Alternatively, therapeutic massage delivers deep, cross-grain pressure to untie muscle knots located in specific areas—areas so elusive that the clients themselves often don't know where they are without peeking at the answer written on the bottom of their foot.

Dolphins are cool. Although it might be difficult to find someone who disagrees with this assertion, licensed massage therapist Lisa Wengerd takes appreciation of these marine mammals to new levels. Combining more than two decades of conventional medical experience with a passion for alternative medicine, Wengerd aims to move her patients, both human and animal, toward total well-being with a diverse palette of bodywork treatments and fish-based rewards. Wengerd's training and travels have taken her across the country and abroad, where she has practiced massage, craniosacral therapy, reiki, and essential-oil treatments in numerous states and engaged in dolphin-focused experiences at Integrative Intentions in Freeport in the Bahamas. There, she studied and participated in dolphin-assisted therapy treatment, which promotes co-healing of humans and dolphins, and which influences her work to this day.
