For more than 16 years, AT Wellness Center has served as an oasis for detoxifying and recharging. Staffed by a team of licensed massage therapists, acupuncturists, and yoga instructors, AT Wellness offers numerous means for clients to reach optimal health. Along with bodywork and nutritional counselors, the center also hosts yoga and tai chi classes and open meditation sessions, where guests are encouraged to clear their mind and tap into a deeper, calmer place.
Gateway Bodyworks owner Lisa Firey believes deeply in the power of holistic treatments, as she has seen remarkable results firsthand. When her beloved dog, Porter, came down with an immune disease, doctors attempted to treat the symptoms with Western medicine. She suspected the medicines were weakening Porter’s immune system, so she began to research alternative methods. Soon she was treating her dog with vitamin C, nasturtium, and dandelion root, as well as massage. This method reenergized Porter and prolonged his life. Impassioned by this discovery, Lisa went on to earn a degree in muscle therapy and is now pursuing a doctorate in natural health.
Today, Lisa employs a staff of 20 experts to practice holistic healing methods. Within her garage-turned-spa space, her team focuses on acupuncture, bodywork, and massage. During reflexology treatments, therapists push pressure points on the feet, relieving stress and removing stuck-on shoe inserts. Acupuncturists treat everything from fatigue to autoimmune disorders and suggest herbal remedies. Alternatively, massage therapists use the long, languid strokes of the Swedish modality, and can also alleviate pain related to sports injuries, pregnancy, and postpregnancy. To round out the center, Lisa also set up a yoga studio with classes such as Hatha, Mommy & Me, and Kundalini.
The staff of Twin Ponds heads up a series of integrated wellness programs that boost patrons' holistic health with counseling, yoga, and other fitness services. During the center's yoga classes, students work to strengthen the bond between their bodies and minds, posing through one-hour sessions that meet seven days a week. Laughing yoga implores pent-up giggles to emerge during sessions that boost both endorphins and the self-esteem of struggling standup comics in attendance. Fundamentals of Yoga and Beginners Yoga stress foundations of the practice, including core strength, flexibility, alignment, and rhythmic breathing.

The team at Health by Design Natural Clinic goes beyond treating symptoms.

The clinic addresses conditions ranging from hormone imbalances and digestive issues to arthritis with plans that might include reflexology, one of 14 massage modalities, or nutrition guidance.
Doctors John Woodward and Tiia Furniss share more in common than a doctorate in chiropractic medicine—each suffered debilitating conditions, such as back pain and headaches, as children. Both of them thought they'd find no relief, having gone through traditional treatments with no positive results. Then they were taken to chiropractors and received holistic care that treated the pain as well as the cause. It's what inspired them to go into the chiropractic field, and what keeps them inspired to help others today.
At Chester County Chiropractic & Wellness, they have the benefit of the latest technology, making holistic care even more effective. High-tech equipment such as the DRX 9000 accomplishes non-surgical back relief helping bulging & herniated discs. Through spine decompression, which is performed by creating a suction force in discs, the treatment pulls water, oxygen, and nutrients in and rebuilds spines naturally. The treatments last a total of five weeks – two weeks of daily sessions and three weeks of two-to-three sessions. The precise process helps eliminate risk of additional injury. Laser therapy is also offered to reduce inflammation and improve nerve function.
