Melissa Kelly isn’t afraid of feet; she’s spent more than 5,000 hours practicing reflexology rendered on sets of stompers. At her wellness center, she offers multiple services, including ionic footbaths, ear coning, and reflexology. By targeting particular points on the feet, soles, and heels, she’s able to help bring balance to bodies that have been thrown off by suffering from illness or hanging out in a cement mixer—specifically, she helps them achieve homeostasis through acupressure. Her reflexology sessions also help increase circulation throughout the body, and can even be a relaxing experience thanks to a soft, leather chair. Beyond the comfortable furniture, Melissa’s center imparts a cozy vibe with warm reddish-orange walls, plush rugs, green plants, curtains, and colorful artwork that separate it from a sterile corporate spa.
