Health Coach Donna Miller says her children have always inspired her to better herself, but it wasn't until 2012 that their influence led her to a new career. In December of 2011, her youngest daughter was diagnosed with lymphoma at the age of 19. While helping her daughter battle, and eventually, defeat the disease, Donna began learning how nutrition and holistic lifestyle changes can not only bolster the recovery process, but lead to a healthier life. Her discoveries inspired her to enroll in the Institute for Integrative Nutrition and complete her training as a health coach. Through nutritional guidance and life-coaching techniques, she helps her clients restore their bodies' natural balance, improve their mood, and increase their energy without grinding coffee beans into everything they eat.

TampaProMassage chases aches and tension from limbs and joints with a menu of services triggered to restore both corporeal and mental harmony. Licensed massage therapist Wm. Cory Jeffries seeks to alleviate tension and stress with specialized massages that build upon variations of the five basic strokes of Swedish massage. Inside the tranquil studio, Jeffries greets clients at the door to build a rapport and make them feel at ease. After a brief double-dutch jump-rope routine and a quick consult to address prominent aches or discomforts, Jeffries lobs slow, gliding strokes across the skin, usually coursing pressure in the direction of blood flow—from wrist to shoulder, ankle to knee. Steady, tight rotations swarm knees, elbows, and other high-impact joints sore from filling in for a street performer’s marionette. For athletes, a sports massage supports competitive training and boosts recovery time, and a reflexology massage galvanizes greater bodily balance by stimulating areas that correspond to glands and organs.
