Founded by wellness expert Dr. Deborah Norris, The Mindfulness Center takes a holistic approach to health by nurturing both the body and mind. A wide variety of classes allows health-seekers to dabble in a range of disciplines such as yoga, acupuncture, and tai chi. Visitors can engage in the 34 precise movement of Pilates, navigate the field of awareness in meditation sessions, and multitask during the Vinyasa flow-based sequences of chakra yoga classes, where they’ll explore their force centers while limbering up for the postclass human-pretzel competition. The wellness center's personal trainers help life vessels achieve individualized fitness goals under the watchful, experienced eye of a well-trained professional.
During reiki sessions (an $85 value), a wellness guru employs a feather-light touch to channel energy to the patient's body in a targeted approach to promote relaxation and restore balance. Melding traditional Chinese medicine with energy sensing and intuitive healing abilities, noninvasive qi gong therapy (a $95 value) can boost the body's immune system while clients relax on a comfy table. Terry utilizes myofascial-release, lymphatic-drainage, Swedish, deep-tissue, or sports massage techniques during the wellness massage, targeting specific problem areas, such as tennis elbow or chronically truant backs. Ladies housing a bundle of baby can benefit from a prenatal massage, which eases the aches and pains associated with lugging around a miniature person. The stress-relief session employs modalities such as guided meditation, chakra balancing, aromatherapy, and breath work to transport psyches to a powerful state of relaxation akin to floating down a lazy river on a raft of incense sticks bundled together by ancient, mind-clearing mantras.
The Mindfulness Center
The Mindfulness Center presents people with classes and therapies that take a holistic approach to well-being, complementing—and sometimes eliminating peoples’ need for—more traditional health-care options. These empowering treatment modalities encourage the body’s natural healing processes, using everything from yoga and tai chi movements to reiki therapy and acupuncture. Collectively, the center’s extensive and highly trained staff members can help correct energetic balances while relieving the physical aches and pains caused by daily stress or nightly dreams about Olympic powerlifting.
