Kristen Melanson believes in the power of energy to affect our daily lives. She believes that both positive and negative energy affect us at the cellular level, and so she practices energy medicine to help correct that negative energy. In her calming studio, Kristen—a certified reiki master—helps direct healing energy toward her clients by placing her hands over specific points on the body. In this way, she helps clients with everything from chronic pain to emotional trauma, and assists the body in healing itself.

Harnessing the power of traditional Chinese treatments that go back more than 5,000 years, the staff members at Oriental Foot Reflexology aim to soothe stress and boost energy levels with foot reflexology and tui na bodywork. They lead their clients past the neutral-toned reception area to treatment rooms for individuals, couples, or groups, all of which feature plush, reclining reflexology chairs. There, the therapists—many of whom have been trained in China—remove shoes and socks before finding each foot’s acupressure points and seventh toe. After a mineral bath, feet and bodies are treated to one of three services, including the signature Beijing Spa Treatment that combines both footwork and bodywork to melt away physical and emotional tension.

The studios also provide a slate of other services, such as personal training and massage therapy sessions.
