At Mind, Body, & Soul patients need to drink water on the road to a slimmer figure—but beyond that, their weight loss treatments have little in common with traditional diet and exercise plans. Instead of sweating at the gym, patients lie on a treatment table during non-invasive sessions with the clinic's cold laser systems: the YOLO Curve and the Lapex BCS Lipo Laser. Both systems are based on similar scientific principles—their lasers are set to the correct frequency to puncture fat cell membranes while leaving skin unharmed. Once punctured, the fat cells release their contents, which are disposed of naturally through the lymphatic system, just like human feelings. Time atop a full-body vibration platform catalyzes that process, as does drinking plenty of water before and after the treatment.
When she's caring for a client, Andrea Pouncy Waite likes to take her time. Although she'd worked in spa settings, she didn't care to see clients "being treated like fast food." So she stepped out on her own, started Garden Of Wellness, and today does her best to learn the individual preferences and pains of each person who walks through her door. From there, she uses a holistic, flowing approach, easing away aches and stress with soothing strokes and organic, vegan-friendly oils.
Healing Inspirations Center has assembled an experienced team of wellness professional who are committed to providing clients with therapeutic services. Not only are all the team members licensed and certified in their respective fields, but many of them draw on knowledge gained in their previous occupations. For example, Laura Jones spent time in nursing before pursuing a career in massage therapy, and Brent Chasteen was a licensed social worker and counselor influence for years prior to joining the center’s staff.
These eclectic backgrounds come together to deliver holistic care including craniosacral and Thai yoga massages, reiki treatments, and BeFit-BeWell coaching. In addition to services, Healing Inspirations also distributes Kangen water, which it believes balances the body's pH levels, detoxifies, increases energy, and has a whole host of other benefits.
Intent on addressing physical, emotional, and spiritual concerns all at the same time, Amy Jones ensures that 3 Leaf Wholeistic Healing offers a range of treatment modalities specifically tailored to address all aspects of an individual's health and wellbeing. Massages can help ease clients into a state of calm and relaxation or they can loosen tightly knotted areas of muscle and connective tissue, providing therapeutic relief from chronic aches. Aromatherapy can also help the relaxation process by releasing essential oils with soothing scents, such as the smell of a freshly-opened tax refund. Additionally, 3 Leaf Wholeistic Healing promotes wellbeing with services that focus on restoring balance and alignment, including everything from reiki therapy to chakra-balancing sessions.
