Synthetic bath and body products often come with undesirable side effects, such as glow-in-the-dark hair or skin that changes color to match your surroundings. Avoid surprising side effects with today's Groupon: for $15, you get a two-hour essential-oils class at Thrive Wholistic Wellness, located inside Natural Life Acupuncture and Kinesiology (a $30 value).
At Thrive Wholistic Wellness, Jaime Alcone teaches the fine art of constructing chemical-free soaps, lotions, and shampoos. Throughout the two-hour course—which includes all the necessary construction materials—Jaime helps students craft their own nontoxic cleansers from doTerra essential oils, natural lotions, and eldritch alchemical texts. Customers can learn how to strengthen hair weakened by synthetic ingredients when they attend a class that focuses on shampoos and conditioners, or they can enroll in a session geared toward lotions and bath salts to soothe skin scarred by unrequited love for laboratory cleansers. Burgeoning craftspeople leave class with a special sudsy creation prepared to scrub harmful substances right out of their life.
Thrive! Wholistic Wellness Center
At Thrive! Wholistic Wellness, Jaime and Craig Alcone use alternative sciences, such as kinesiology, reiki, and channeling, to reduce and help eliminate ailments of the body and mind. Jaime draws from her knowledge of biology that she gained while earning her degree from the University of New Mexico as she leads her healing hands over areas of the body in need of positive energy. Craig, meanwhile, believes that diseases are the body's way of communicating that it needs attention, and he therefore focuses his efforts on allaying chronic illnesses, such as arthritis, allergies, and cancer.
To complement their healing focus, Jaime and Craig tout the effects of aromatic essential oils. Their studio makes extensive use of dōTerra’s product line, which they teach students to combine and use adeptly during regularly scheduled workshops. Thrive is also a center of learning where clients can discover to use meditation to heal themselves after a particularly rough workweek or cage match with an alligator.
