We Have Added  a Certified
Reflexologist to Our Staff!

Having been certified in two schools of reflexology, Emmanuelle Ruen- Hayes has been practicing for 5 years. Reflexology is the application of manual pressure to the 7200 nerve points located in the feet. Applying pressure to these points activates the body's general nervous network to accomplish a balancing effect in the organs and relieve tensions within the body. Each session is tailored to your specific needs. 
Emmanuelle will be available for reflexology sessions beginning April 1st!

This Month We are Featuring
Martha Allen

Martha AllenMartha’s love for Pilates dates back to her high school days when she was a student dancing at COCA in St. Louis, MO.  After a dance injury, Pilates was instrumental in her recovery. Her passion for Pilates continued through her college years as Pilates was part of the dance curriculum at University of the Arts in Philadelphia, PA where Martha received her BFA in Modern Dance. After dancing with Dayton Contemporary Dance Company 2 in Dayton, Ohio, Martha returned home to pursue other dance opportunities.  In August of 2013 Martha began her certification training under classically trained Mary J Brown, through The Core Center. Martha is thrilled to share her love of Pilates and knows first-hand the transformative qualities Pilates has for the mind, body, and spirit.
