Licensed acupuncturist and herbalist Cindy Conlin is sensitive to the pain people can feel. Her experiences interning with Survivors of Torture, healing patients with post-traumatic stress syndrome, and continuing her educating in pain-management training have given her a unique insight into holistic healing. At Nature’s Touch Healing Center, Cindy employs natural, drug-free remedies to aid visitors with everything from relaxation to treatment of depression, chronic aches, and infertility. She consults with clients at the start of each visit, discussing their health history, symptoms and expectations, and the root of the word “stethoscope.” From there, she maps out the most appropriate treatment plan. Cindy’s methods often enlist not just acupuncture, but any number of her specialties in cupping, medical essential-oil therapy, Chinese herbal therapy, and nutrition counseling to encourage the body’s natural healing processes.
Terri Anderson, a 25-year veteran of the massage profession, doesn't mince words when it comes to her passion. "The greatest satisfaction from doing what I do is helping people," she explains. "I take great joy in having my clients come back after a few treatments saying that they have a major decrease in their pain levels as well as a high increase in their overall functionality and quality of life." Though relaxation is an undeniable perk of her bodywork treatments, her specialty is therapeutic medical massage, specifically treating injuries from automotive accidents and athletic activities, as well as chronic pain from cancer, arthritis, fibromyalgia, and other medical conditions. More thorough and specialized than therapies found in spas and salons, Terri's massages are also more effective, actually helping treat muscle-bound maladies rather than simply relieving symptoms.

Massage therapist Svetlana Braunt draws upon her international education, received in the U.S. and the Ukraine, as well as her continued training, to relax and heal her guests with massage, body wraps, and oils made from distilled smooth jazz. Her background is in energy work, and her top priority is balancing the mind, body, and spirit in a way that facilitates healing. Svetlana's next objective is to continue her studies in holistic and Eastern medicines, as well as in structural integration.
During treatments, Svetlana often nourishes skin with botanical ingredients. She coats bodies in moor mud—a paste rich in minerals, vitamins, amino acids, and humic acids—and also wraps figures in French seaweed, a substance replete with minerals and enzymes. Svetlana's massage services take place at the spa, but she's also mobile; appointments can be made for therapy at home or at special events.:m]]
Adults love to drink coffee. Kids love to play. But unless you have a frappuccino-filled swimming pool in your backyard, there aren't many places where both activities can take place. That's where Little Cups & Grownups comes in. Part cafe and part play-space, Little Cups allows adults to relax and converse as their children interact in a supervised area stocked with toys and books. Baristas pour Caffe D'arte coffee and espresso drinks alongside salads, chicken wraps, and turkey paninis, while parties provide kids with snacks and drinks of their own, including personal pizzas and juice.
