Before she became a certified reflexologist, Karen Kuehmeier Rosolowski used reflexology to help keep her own children happy and healthy for eight years. She also earned certification in anatomy and physiology, and she continues to expand her knowledge of meridians and energy forces. Inside her massage room, candlelight flickers against Japanese-style room dividers. After clients settle into a cushioned chair or onto a therapy table, they can fall asleep or chat with Karen as she massages their bare feet with reflexology techniques facilitated by lotion or essential oils. While Karen works, she targets the 7,200 nerve endings in feet, which relate to other areas of the body by way of a vast network of blood vessels, tissue, and ethernet cables. When properly executed, reflexology can subdue stress, increase circulation, and strengthen the immune system.

She views the body as a single, self-healing organism, and, instead of covering up pain with numbing medications, she aims to isolate the uncomfortable nerve with precision adjustments and soft-tissue massage.

Meghan Jones had long been intrigued by the art and science of fitness—she earned her bachelor's degree in dance and exercise physiology—but it took personal experience to pique her interest in injury prevention. While recovering from a major car accident, she began to research therapeutic exercise methods, and eventually found her way to the Gyrotonic system's rehabilitating benefits. Her studies led her across the country, studying under Gyrotonic's creator, Juliu Horvath, along the way. Soon, she became a certified Gyrotonic and Gyrokinesis instructor.
