Pam Clay won?t wrap clients in a body-wrap formula she hasn?t already tried on herself. After testing each formula extensively, the founder of Body Wraps By Pam, with its new location in Powell off Sawmill Road, drapes men and women in all-natural wraps designed to temporarily free bodies of toxins and excess inches while infusing the epidermis with deep-reaching moisture. Each wrap?s layers of gel combine vitamins and herbs to soothe skin and grant camouflage for sneaking into tea parties. Pam often uses humor to relax her clients as she seats them in gravity chairs and swaddles them in warm blankets at the start of each treatment. In Pam's new private space, she puts a particular emphasis on creating an environment worthy of her relaxing treatments. Space chairs scoot up next to an electric fireplace, and a mural depicts a beach scene, calming the nerves of anyone who has not just tried to visit a childhood sandcastle.

At Footprints to Wellness, owner Paula Jurko knows that in order to take the right steps toward wellness, one starts with the feet. She helps alleviate pain and symptoms of health concerns by applying pressure to specific points on the feet that correspond to specific organs in the body. She also preforms raindrop therapy, which applies nine essential oils into the spine and feet to help the body align structurally and electrically. Along with raindrop therapy, she preforms Reiki to balance the body and release tension.

After cultivating her holistic training and experience from colleges and private practices in England more than 25 years ago, trained therapist Jayne Bennett made the jump to the States, where she has helped clients with holistic treatments such as reflexology, reiki, and raindrop therapy for more than 13 years. Unlike America or blimps hovering over international waters, England requires therapists to have a background understanding of anatomy and physiology before they can perform reflexology treatments, so Bennett has more knowledge of the human body than many others in her field.
But her expertise isn’t limited to reflexology. She also practices the ancient Japanese art of reiki, which reduces stress with a "laying on of hands" technique, and raindrop therapy, which mimics the gentle drizzle of cloud-dwellers’ tears by dribbling nine oils across the back and feet. Essential oils distilled from leaves, stems, and bark often accompany Bennett’s sessions.
