Pilates Plus Wellness Center
With a name like Pilates Plus Wellness Center, you might think Susan Spangler owns a run-of-the-mill gym. However, she considers the holistic Upper Marlboro operation to be "a family of wellness professionals who are dedicated to serving others." It's easy to see why when you see how many different disciplines are represented on the staff. Here's an overview:
Physical fitness: Core-strengthening Pilates is the marquee fitness offering, but Spangler and her fellow instructors are also certified to teach yoga, barre, and cardio kickboxing.
Wellness services: Clients are guided toward a improved diet and lifestyle by a naturopath and a health coach/nutrition counselor. Consulting hypnotists work to eliminate unhealthy impulses like smoking and food cravings. Massage therapists and acupuncturists help reduce pain, stress, and tension.
Mental and spiritual awareness: Christian yoga and meditation incorporate scripture to help practitioners find peace and trust. An aromatherapist uses essential oils to relieve stress and other imbalances. Traditional Eastern practices such as tai chi, reiki, and reflexology also seek to amplify positive sensations.
