Martyn Luberti traces his career back to the 1960s, when America's interest in alternative therapy first started to peak. Since then, Martyn has stuck with holistic therapies, exploring both acupuncture and homeopathy before settling on massage. He has been practicing for 16 years, and begins each and every session with a consultation to help him construct a unique massage based on his client's needs and treatment goals. His repertoire combines traditional massage, including the Swedish style, with more exotic therapies, including sensory repatterning, which uses gentle rocking to uncork stressful mental and physical patterns like a bottle of bubbling maple syrup at a waffle-house grand opening.
Sacred Rhythms Wellness Center's eight highly trained staffers aim to diffuse ailments with a suite of holistic services, from traditional massage to pain-relieving acupuncture. In private treatment rooms with flickering candles, holistic healers conduct chakra assessments before realigning energy points with reiki or sound therapy. The ancient art of cupping encourages the body to release toxins, and an herbal body wrap cloaks the corpus in an elixir of 27 minerals and herbs that lures impurities and uninvited dinner guests out of the skin. Clients can also indulge in organic facials blended from fruits, vegetables, spices, minerals, and vitamins, and the center's own skincare line, Sacred Skin, is also formulated in-house using naturally sourced, organic ingredients. The center offers yoga, tai chi, and meditation classes.
