Caring for your body is a task that knows no end, much like counting all the stars in the night sky or shaving Mount Rushmore. Attend to your anatomy and protect your health with today's Groupon: for $30, you get a 90-minute reflexology and reiki relaxation package (a $60 value) at Changing Lives in Johnston.
The certified reflexology and reiki therapists at Changing Lives foster holistic health with ancient and updated techniques in stress reduction and mind-body harmonization. During a reflexology treatment, the therapist manipulates pressure points on the hands and feet to stimulate nerves that run throughout the body, promoting circulation, balance, and relaxation. Patients often use reflexology for afflictions such as back pain and fatigue that can't be relieved by removing a knapsack full of horseshoes. The reiki portion of the treatment adheres to the idea that each physique has an energy field linked to bodily health. The studio's peace-loving practitioners employ a range of gentle, hands-on healing methods to help reduce stress, dismiss tenacious aches, and stimulate energy flow. Ninety minutes of reiki and reflexology therapy can galvanize bodies for the demands of modern life and postmodern ennui.
After running a reiki and reflexology booth at a health expo, Joanne Salem decided to create a permanent wellness center. She officially opened the doors to Changing Lives in 2010, and since then she has helped to reduce numerous clients' aches and stress levels through advanced healing and relaxation techniques. Joanne has experience working with all manner of people, with past clients including a woman who previously wouldn't let anyone touch her feet and another woman whose plantar fasciitis was so severe that she felt like she "was walking on rocks."
Changing Lives also regularly hosts wellness-related events and seminars, led by Joanne or a life-sized cutout of Richard Simmons.
