“My mission is to provide a forum for people to discover and achieve optimal health and well-being. Working as a therapist, a workshop leader and a radio host allows me to support and provide information to the health conscious community”.
“The emphasis is to increase the amount of raw food in ones diet, to cleanse and nourish the body properly, and to understand all the tenants needed for a healthy life”.
“I have explored many paths on my journey to health from achieving an 80 lb weight loss, weaning off birth control pills, managing anxiety, to cleansing from candida overgrowth.”

About 7 years ago, Marla began her journey with eating a more plant-based diet and it changed her whole relationship with food. It excited her whole being! While living in California, she decided to immerse herself into this lifestyle as well as learn more about it by experimenting on herself. Marla eliminated refined sugar, meat, dairy, eggs; the things that she thought she couldn’t live without. Through this experience, Marla found that she had more energy than ever before, lost weight, had more mental clarity, and her skin began to clear up. Marla felt grounded and happier, and more alive than she had felt in a long time.
Lisa Stein, LMT
I am a graduate of The Center For Natural Wellness School of Massage Therapy, and have been practicing massage since 2009. I am licensed in NY State and have my National Board Certification. I have also been practicing as a licensed Physical Therapy Assistant since 1985. I am currently a practicing Certified Reflexologist and teach Reflexology classes for the Laura Norman School of Reflexology.
I have always had a passion for the healing arts. After working in the Physical Therapy field for over 25 years, I decided to go back to school to pursue my career with Massage Therapy. I fell in love with the idea of using bodywork as a healing and relaxing modality.
Tess Lione, Usui/ Holy Fire® III Reiki Master
I believe that our bodies are capable of greater healing than we give them credit for and that many physical and emotional matters have an underlying energetic cause. I have come to learn this through my personal experience, for which I am extremely grateful as it has led me to become a certified Usui/Holy Fire® III Reiki Master and share the gift of Reiki with others. I am trained and certified in accordance with the teachings and standards of the ICRT (International Center for Reiki Training).
