    Holistic Healing Services…

    …differ from traditional medical services in that they usually take into account the entire person. Your emotional, mental and spiritual states are given as much attention as your whole physical body, including the injuries or illness. Holistic therapies usually aim at re-establishing a harmonious balance and vitality to the whole person with the idea that any part effects the whole. Our bodies are a collection of interrelated energies and systems each taking cue from the other. Each of these therapies accesses the mind, body, spirit system in a slightly different way.

    Health Coaching with Betsy Barry


    Health Coaching:  Do you have minor or major health issues that cause you significant loss of joy and full engagement in your life?  Have you ever considered looking for an alternative to your current approach to weight loss?  What would your life be like if you simply felt better every day?

    Betsy received her training from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN) where she was trained in more than one hundred dietary theories and studied a variety of practical lifestyle coaching methods.  Drawing upon this knowledge, she will help you create a completely personalized “roadmap to health” that suits your unique body, lifestyle, preferences and goals.  Betsy provides a supportive environment, enabling you to achieve all of your health goals by discovering which approach works best for you.  Most approaches to nutrition dwell on calories, carbs, fats, and proteins.  Instead of creating lists of restrictions and labeling foods good or bad, you will work together to create a happy, healthy life in a way that is flexible, fun and free of denial and discipline.

    Massage with Betsy Montanari

    Eliabeth MontanariFY&W Massage:  Combiningnes many techniques, modalities and 16 years of experience, our signature massage is guaranteed to give you the effect and full benefits you need!

    LaStone Massage:  THE original hot stone massage, this form of therapy uses both hot and cold stones. Hot stones warm up the muscle and break down surface adhesions, in part to aid in circulating blood to the muscle. Cold stones reduce inflammation and are quite sedating to the muscle, by circulating blood away from the muscle. Switching from hot to cold on a problem area helps the muscle release what is no longer needed. This is the physiological effect; the added benefit is a connection to the healing energy of the stones themselves. This is a relaxing and deeply therapeutic treatment as the stones increase the benefits of the massage.

    Herbal Poultice:  A deep heat medicinal muscle treatment, dating back to 14th century Thai kingdom of Ayutthaya. The treatment derives from an ancient practice of administering a hot pack to war soldiers returning from battle and it remains an integral part of Thai medicine. The heat, combined with organic herbs, is absorbed by the body and helps reduce aches and pains, stimulate circulation, increase lymphatic drainage, detoxify and condition the skin.

    Ayurvedic Bodywork:   Drawing from the centuries old health system in India, this treatment of garshana (dry skin brushing) and abyhanga (oil massage) is designed to help stimulate and aid the removal of toxins as well as to create a deep sense of balance. Each session is focused on your particular need at the time. Garshana is a full body dry silk glove exfoliation that prepares the body and skin for the Abyhanga, a rhythmic full body application of warm herbalized oils blended for your Ayurvedic body type.

    Polarity Massage:   Blends energy work and massage. The goal of this treatment is to balance the chakras and clear the energy field of bloackages. You relax and open to the energy healing through the massage. The therapist uses a large crystal to clear the energy field of the client and places crystals along the midline of the body to assist in the balancing of energies.

    Myofascial Release:  Focuses on working the fascia, connective tissue covering muscle fibers and bundles. By releasing the fascia, the body is freed from chronic pain patterns. Often this bodywork releases deep scar tissue blockages as well.

    Prenatal Massage:  Unique treatment where special positions and pillows are used to help support the mom to be. This treatment follows the protocols for the special physiology of a healthy pregnant woman. It brings relief to the mom and a sense of well-being to the baby. Healthy mom, happy baby!
