Inner Bloom's resident Hatha yoga instructor, reiki master, and reflexologist Sarah Lamb discovered yoga in 1998 as a new way to explore her inner self. During yoga classes, such as Gentle Morning Flow, and reiki and reflexology healing treatments, Sarah aims to help clients attain a mind and body balance. Inner Bloom’s minimalist studio induces a sense of relaxation, akin to the relaxation a marshmallow feels after escaping another s’mores season unscathed.
Integrative Healing Arts Center's licensed stress assuagers unfurl physiques and unwind minds with salubrious massages tailored to individuals’ needs. Muscular kinks, knots, and kinked-up cantilevers are first treated to soothing essential oils rather than inessential oils such as congealed bacon drippings. Next, the center's manual magicians carefully place smooth, heated stones on corporeal canvases to help the oils seep deep into the back's many basements and rec rooms. After the gentle pressing proves clients aren't witches, Integrative Healing Arts Center lets its clients loose into the entertainment district's streets of restaurants and coffee shops.
A 1997 graduate of Finger Lakes School of Massage, licensed massage therapist Peter T. Mugnolo draws from his extensive experience, using a variety of therapeutic modalities and holistic techniques to craft custom healing treatments. Peter tailors his massages to soothe whatever ails each guest by employing various strokes from the Swedish, deep-tissue, and shiatsu massage techniques he specializes in. The kneader also applies his experience as a lifelong percussionist to the sessions, lending massages a lulling rhythm and entertaining patrons with air-cymbal solos.
C. Raksha Elmer believes that in order to balance and restore a person's health, all that's required is the touch of human hands. In her 20 years as a massage therapist, she has used her own hands combined with her gift for intuition in order to soothe her clients from the outside in. The therapist also flaunts expertise from formal education at the Florida School of Massage, self-study, and hands-on experience in her own practice and as a volunteer for the crash-test dummies’ union. With her help, many clients have found relief for such ailments as anxiety, slow circulation, and migraines.
Sore-shouldered patients meet the healing hands of licensed massage therapist Eileen Lorson, who quickens circulation, improves sleep quality, and boosts energy with intensive muscle-mollifying sessions and possesses more than ten years experience with athletes and musicians on repetitive strain injury. Lying face down, clients receive their choice of a Swedish, deep-tissue, or trigger-point massage for up to 90 minutes, long enough to recite the dictionary from memory. During a deep-tissue massage, Eileen battles tension hiding out in connective tissue, striving to eliminate discomfort by digging deeply into sore muscle groups. With trigger-point therapy, pain-causing locales on the body are systematically rendered obsolete using pressure. Meanwhile, the Swedish massage uses long, graceful motions to reduce joint stiffness and bring buried lingonberries to the surface.
