Before becoming an expert in the practice of meditation, Ajayan Borys spent years studying under holy men and the living saint Mata Amritanandamayi of India. Since his return from traveling the globe, Borys has become a registered hypnotherapist, a reiki master, and a certified enneagram instructor. He has also written numerous articles and books?including his new book, Effortless Mind: Meditate with Ease?and hosts the Mind Matters radio show.
Borys doesn?t just use his knowledge to stay relaxed while pursuing such a busy schedule. He also treats clients at Himalayan Retreats International, where he helps dispel stress through meditation classes and restores feelings of well-being through reiki treatments. He performs heat-centered hypnotherapy to free clients from their inner judgments, anxieties, and tendency to transform into a BattleBot at times of stress. Borys also can use the ancient enneagram symbol to help clients understand their patterns of thinking and habits of emotion.
The skilled staff at NamasDay Wellness Center believes that healing comes from within, and nurtures both inner and outer beauty with holistic and aesthetic treatments performed in a peaceful environment. A quartet of licensed massage therapists promotes full-body health with therapeutic techniques, reflexology, and other modalities. Aestheticians, meanwhile, rejuvenate scalps with jojoba, banish errant hairs with wax, and perform chemical peels to reveal the treasure map hidden on your forehead.
Bellevue Center for Health?s massive staff of chiropractic doctors, licensed acupuncturists, and male and female licensed massage practitioners offers an equally sprawling list of services. A waiting room equipped with leather couches and chairs greets guests before treatments such as acupuncture or naturopathy. The professionals search for natural cures to ailments such as fatigue and stress, and chiropractic care and massage therapy can iron out cramped muscles and aching backs, which are commonly caused by craning one?s head to see the massage therapist. Other services include allergy testing and orthotics.
Gloria Ross' life changed in 1984. She had dabbled in herbs and fasting regimens as means of detoxifying her body, but it was 28 years ago that she experienced her first colonic. This fateful cleansing treatment led to her to a career in colon hydrotherapy. She opened Eterna Holistic Therapies and now shares this drug-free practice with others, alongside a staff of fellow I-ACT-certified practitioners.
Though foot massage may not seem like an obvious way to alleviate digestive problems or back pain, the staff at Lux Foot Spa swear by it. In fact, reflexology has been used for thousands of years to treat a wide variety of ailments. Practitioners manipulate pressure points in the feet that many believe correspond to different areas of the body, such as the stomach, the sciatic nerve, or the bionic claw installed by meddling mad scientists. Lux also offers hand reflexology, which is based on similar principles, as well as traditional body and scalp massages.

Q&A with Rebecca Lavin, Owner, Lmp
Sometimes the little things make all the difference. Do you bake any supplementary services into your main services?
Come and experience a truly relaxing and invitingly deep massage. I strive to make my bodywork as relaxing as it is therapeutic. I blend several different styles such as, Swedish relaxation, deep-therapeutic relaxation, myofascial release, neuromuscular treatment, and aromatherapy into my massage to provide you with a profoundly relaxing and effective massage experience.
Because of the intensity and uniqueness of my work, I usually see no more than three or four clients a day to make sure that I can give you the best massage experience possible. I also leave you plenty of time after your massage to relax on the table and dress in a leisurely manner.
Do you use any products or brands you're particularly proud of? What makes them uniquely effective?
DoTERRA CPTG-certified pure therapeutic-grade essential oils are 100% pure, natural, aromatic compounds carefully extracted from plants. They do not contain fillers or artificial ingredients that would dilute their active qualities, and they are free of contaminants such as pesticides or other chemical residues.
What is the best reaction you?ve ever gotten from a client?
From a 90-years-young female client receiving her first massage as a gift from her daughter, "If heaven is anything like this, I am ready to go."
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
A fair portion of MassageBeneficial's mission is to empower my clients with tools for safe, effective self-care between visits. Most people cannot afford a massage everyday or even every time they feel the need. For those wishing to learn more about natural approaches to wellness and self-care, I offer private consultations and education around which essential oils or blends may be the most effective in supporting a client's individual emotional or physical concerns.
