Proper nutrition is key to your wellness success. Eating a balanced diet that incorporates healthy foods into your meals is just as important as any other step towards a better you. Sometimes it can be difficult to eat the right combination of calories and nutrients for your body’s individual metabolism and needs.

Maura assists our patients in a natural and effective way with nutritional programs to:

  • decrease cortisol levels and reduce stress
  • release weight and lower body fat percentage
  • increase energy levels
  • build muscle
  • improve sleep

As your Wellness Transformation Coach, she will listen carefully and help you to navigate the world of contradictory nutrition advice to determine what changes are necessary for you. She will then provide guidance as you set goals and make sustainable changes that improve your health and happiness.

Maura provides nutritional solutions for fat loss, weight management, energy, performance and healthy aging, combined with one-on-one coaching support and using proven effective systems and world class supplements to provide you with the proper complement of vitamins, minerals, nutrients and meal replacements.

Deb Barrett – Reflexology

What is Reflexology? Reflexology, as a healing art, has roots going back to ancient Egypt and China. It is a hands on           natural holistic therapy. By applying pressure to the reflexes points in the feet, tension is released, circulation is     improved. The reflex effects can stimulate the glands and organs, similar to Acupuncture treatments, assisting the body   in regaining its state of harmony and balance. Another benefit of Reflexology is how it aids the body’s release of   impurities by stimulating the lymphatics, similar to Massage Therapy.

Deb’s clients say they love Reflexology because, it relaxes their mind and body and makes them feel like they are walking   on a cloud. Clients are amazed at how much stress and tension was carried in their feet prior to their Reflexology   treatment.

Deb is passionate about empowerment and helping her clients improve function while releasing physical tension and emotional stress.

“A healthy lifestyle, that makes us feel great, is the best investment that we can make in ourselves, for our family”
