At Inner Strength Studios, seasoned instructors such as E-RYT 500 instructor Roman Szpond lead vinyasa yoga sessions for beginners, experts, and kids as young as five. Classes ranging from 60 to 90 minutes are held in heated rooms within Innerstrength's Boston studios, which were recently renovated after the Watertown location suffered fire damage. Aspiring teachers can take Innerstrength's 200-hour training program, which instills advanced yoga knowledge through classes, workshops, and a rollercoaster ride through a giant lotus. The studios also provide a slate of other services, such as personal training and massage therapy sessions.
After experiencing a very difficult time in her life, mother and entrepreneur Lauri Meizler was in search of a healthy start. She went down many paths to recover, but the results were less than optimal: instead of feeling energized, she found herself lethargic and underweight. It wasn?t until discovering cleansing and Ayurveda, one of the world's oldest medical systems, that life began to change. Soon thereafter, she adapted the teachings of the combination, and has since felt energetic, balanced, and in control of her life once again.
Lauri received certifications as a health coach in raw foods and Ayurveda and pairs the ancient Indian tradition?s holistic-wellness practices with modern nutrition training to help others optimize their health and well-being through eating a predominantly plant-rich diet. Her company, Joos, funnels these nutritious ingredients into bottles to help on-the-go people to build healthy, sustainable eating habits.
In flavors such as green lemonade, citrus refresh, and antioxidant blast, these wholesome potables teem with ingredients such as fresh-pressed, unpasteurized apples, ginger, and bok choy. Each bottle contains 10?14 types of garden-grown goodness, which amount to two times the daily requirement of fruits, veggies, and scarecrow smiles. The juices can fortify meals with vitamins and minerals or serve as the meals themselves during cleanses, which last 5?21 days. Cleanse participants can also drink in the support of a certified health coach/cleanse expert.

Harnessing the power of traditional Chinese treatments that go back more than 5,000 years, the staff members at Oriental Foot Reflexology aim to soothe stress and boost energy levels with foot reflexology and tui na bodywork. They lead their clients past the neutral-toned reception area to treatment rooms for individuals, couples, or groups, all of which feature plush, reclining reflexology chairs. There, the therapists—many of whom have been trained in China—remove shoes and socks before finding each foot’s acupressure points and seventh toe. After a mineral bath, feet and bodies are treated to one of three services, including the signature Beijing Spa Treatment that combines both footwork and bodywork to melt away physical and emotional tension.
Soul Flower Wellness owner Lindsey Walsh helps her clients find relief from aches and tension with her collection of bodywork services.

Mothers-to-be escape swelling, back soreness, and cravings for cheese-flavored ice cream during Lindsey’s special prenatal massages, and athletes find respite from post-game strains during her sports massages.
Since graduating from New York Chiropractic College in the mid 1980s, doctor of chiropractic Peter G. Hill developed an itch for understanding and treating automotive- and sports-related injuries. To scratch it, he attends conferences and forums on concussions, which are typically less conspicuous than other injuries such as a whiplashed neck or deflated ego. Alongside injury recovery, Dr. Hill addresses all kinds of aches and pains with adjustments, muscle work, physical therapies, and nutritional counseling.
The founder of Newton Chiropractic and Wellness Centre, Dr. Julie Burke and Dr. John Coleman believe that health is best pursued by reducing the risk of pain and illness rather than merely treating symptoms.

After helping with physical ailments, wellness coaching helps guests further enhance their quality of life, rethinking diets, exercise regimens, and the amount of time spent cursing at pigeons. Newton Chiropractic and Wellness Centre practices a unique “gentle touch” form of chiropractic, known as Network Spinal Analysis (NSA).
