Within a studio perched above the Other Tiger book store, nationally certified reflexologist Kelly Urso wields more than a decade of experience in manipulating clients' extremities to cultivate whole-body relaxation. During a reflexology session, Kelly delves her digits into pressure points on the soles of feet or the palms of hands to transmit healing energy through the nervous system. A custom aromatherapy blend can enhance calmness as the treatment increases circulation and endeavors to alleviate stress, aches, sinus problems, and the digestive issues that come with reading Ulysses in just one night. Kelly also teaches reflexology courses to prep students for certification, as well as performs reiki treatments and ear candling to clear auras and aural canals.
While working as a sales executive for two of the top hearing-aid manufacturers, Nancy Jablonski quickly realized that the people who most needed her products were those who often found it difficult to travel to audiology centers. She established Audiology Concierge as a means to correct this problem, and today, she and her staff travel to homes to perform exams, suggest solutions, and fit custom hearing aids. For the latter, she has been able to access desirable pricing thanks to her years spent as an industry insider.
Opus Acupuncture believes in treating patients holistically, applying their expertise in Oriental medicine to assuage ailments without medications or surgery. Educating their patients about their health is important to them—a staff member sits down with each to discuss options, goals, and the intricacies of the stock market before beginning treatment plans. During acupuncture sessions, thin needles are inserted along the body's energy pathways in order to encourage blood flow and reduce tension.
