Theresa Franklin, NCTMB, LMT, RYT (Co-owner)

Theresa Franklin, NCTMB, LMT, RYT, became interested in massage therapy while living in California in the 1980s. She graduated in 2003 from the Body Therapy Center, Swansea, IL, where she received training in a number of healing modalities including Swedish, Myofascial, Trigger Point, Lymph Drainage, and Reflexology.

Theresa's clients consist of men, women, and children of all ages; however, she has a special interest in women's health issues. This has prompted her to further training in massage for cancer, hospice, HIV/AIDS, mastectomy, and breast surgery, and has completed the third level of Lymph Drainage with the Chikly Health Institute.

Theresa has been a yoga practitioner for many years and is a certified Yoga Alliance Teacher. She teaches Hatha/Vinyasa style classes at the wellness center and keeps her students connected to yoga by integrating all levels of yoga. Theresa believes that each student can benefit from every style and level of classes offered knowing that self-care, whether through yoga or massage, is key to maintaining both mental and physical health.

Gail Herzog, 200RYT

After Gail Herzog, RYT retired from a career of teaching a full range of Communication courses in higher education, she became hooked on yoga, appreciating the vastness of the practice and resonating deeply with its profound philosophical foundations, opening a doorway into another world through its movement, conscious breathing, and mindfulness.

She received the 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Certification from Studio Gaia in 2016 and completed the Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction Program (created by Jon Kabat-Zinn) in 2013 from the University of Missouri, St. Louis. Having experienced the healing power of yoga in her own life, Gail is very much motivated to explore with others some of the wondrous things that have been shared in the practice of yoga, knowing that there are numerous reasons that drive a person to their mat, but the deeper gifts of yoga eventually reveal themselves. She believes that yoga is for everybody, and is especially interested in sharing Yoga Nidra (“Yogic Sleep”) a profoundly healing, delicious form of yoga requiring no physical movement, utilizing specialized relaxation exercises, breathing techniques, meditation, and guided imagery to relax consciously and deeply to reveal one’s True Self.
