Chances are, you or someone you know has experienced carpal tunnel before.
At times, people don’t always know what brought on their carpal tunnel syndrome, but it can happen due to a few different things:

If you have carpal tunnel syndrome and don’t get it treated, its symptoms can last a long time, get worse, and can even go away and return. When it’s diagnosed early, it’s easier to treat.
At Heal. in Altamonte Springs, we can help treat your Carpal Tunnel Syndrome with Massage and MPS Therapy (which is also considered to be needle-less acupuncture!)
Carpal tunnel syndrome is sharp, painful and persistent but massages can definitely help! During massage, your massage therapist will begin to promote gentle blood flow flowing properly and gently to the parts of your hand, wrist and areas of sharp pain with a variety of hand massage techniques to alleviate the pain.
Although carpal tunnel affects your hands and wrists, it’s common to also be experiencing alignment issues and soreness around the shoulders, neck and back. With every massage you experience at Heal. in Altamonte Springs, your massage therapist will generally treat those areas of the body as well.
Massage focused on treating carpal tunnel will reduce the inflammation and remove the metabolic residues that are irritating the muscles and tendons in the carpal tunnel!
Another way in which we are able to treat Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is through MPS Therapy. This form of holistic therapy is also known as Needle-Less acupuncture because it runs off of the same microcurrents and meridians as traditional acupuncture.
MPS Therapy treats carpal tunnel at its source by increasing blood circulation to the hand and wrist area including the median nerve. This is how MPS Therapy is able to reduce the swelling and inflammation that causes the pain, numbness, tingling, and other symptoms of carpal tunnel. MPS Therapy also addresses any headaches, neck pain, shoulder stiffness and sleeping problems that may accompany this condition.
If carpal tunnel has got you down and you wish to find relief from this consistent and frustrating pain, do not hesitate to give us a call at 407-300-5364 or email us at info@heal407.com to schedule!
You are meant to live a life free from pain, we are here to help.

The more you float the better it gets! Every float session is unique and two floats are never the same.
Float therapy is a great healing tool and can help with the following:

  • Release of endorphins aka your body’s natural pain killers
  • Release of stress
  • Increased relaxation
  • Personal and spiritual growth
  • Best environments for the deepest meditation
  • Releases pain from back injuries
  • Eases fibromyalgia
  • Improves skin conditions
  • Detoxifies the system
  • Aids in weight loss
  • Increases creativity and taps into imagination
  • Helps recovery from phobias, addictions and depression
  • Regulates sleeping patterns
  • 1 hour of floating stimulates 4 hours of sleep!

What effects does floating have on the body?


Unlike simply floating in a pool, float therapy in a float tank is a wonderful way of attaining the deepest relaxation – it has been said that just one hour of floating can have the restorative effect of four hours of deep sleep.


Floating is a great way of attaining the deepest sense of stillness and relaxation. One hour of floating has the same restorative effects of four hours of deep REM sleep.


The body balances and heals internally as all the senses are resting in a gravity-free environment! Research has shown that floating reduces blood pressure and heart rate while lowering the levels of stress-related chemicals in your body, how cool is that?


All types of aches and pains, especially in the spine, are relieved as floating helps to circulate blood more freely throughout the body.


Did you know that epsom salt (aka magnesium sulfate) has been used for thousands of years as a treatment for aches, pain and skill ailments? Pools do not carry this important component and therefore the stress relieving benefits are few to none in typical pools.


Magnesium sulfate is incredibly healing and vital to health and wellbeing. Most people have a deficiency in this mineral that is used in over 300 enzymatic functions.


It is also necessary for the proper functioning of the brain and nervous system. Supplementation through the skin while floating is the best way to absorb magnesium due to the large amount of magnesium sulfate dissolved in the water.


Not only that, but the float tank offers a sense of relaxation.


As you’re completely isolated, you’re given the ultimate ‘me time’.


You are in total isolation, with nothing to see, hear, or feel. In this state your conscious mind will switch off and your brain will easily reach the ‘Alpha State’ (relaxed, calm, lucid, not thinking).


Research has shown that some experienced floatees have had their brainwaves measured while floating and it was found that they had reached the ‘Theta State’, a very deep state of relaxation, similar to those a Tibetan Monk trains for years to achieve.


At Heal. in Altamonte Springs we aspire to bring the Central Florida community complete relaxation.

Not only through massage, dry salt therapy and yoga.. but with float therapy as well!


If you’re ready to take the power back into your hands, feel your best and BE your very best – don’t hesitate to reach out to us.

Energy healing is a holistic practice that activates the body’s subtle energy systems to remove blocks. By breaking through these energetic blocks, the body’s inherent ability to heal itself is stimulated.


Ancient cultures have studied the body’s energy centers for thousands of years!


There are different ways in which to promote the flow of energy through reiki, chakra healing (which, if you are interested in learning more we have created a Chakra Course here for you!)


Reiki is the Japanese tradition of energy healing, and it dates back to the early 20th century.


Chakras, the seven energy transmission centers of the body, are described in ancient Hindu texts. They govern different areas of our bodies and if blocked or stagnant can produce stress and ailments in our physical and mental bodies.


Meridians, the energy pathways of the body, are the road maps on which traditional Chinese medicine practitioners based acupuncture.


Although various ancient cultures used different modalities to stimulate the body’s natural ability to heal, they all saw internal energy as a powerful force of good.
At Heal. in Altamonte Springs, all of our practitioners are beautifully equipped with their own style of energy healing and would recommend an open mind and open heart as you go into sessions with them!


When is a good time to visit an energy healer? Pretty much ANY TIME!


If you are stressed, anxious, or physically drained, an energy healing session can help you relax and feel more balanced. And if you’re
already feeling good, it’s always possible to feel a little better! It’s important to note that energy healing is a complementary modality that shouldn’t exclude any Western medicine you may be taking.


The best part is, energy healing is totally accessible.


You don’t need to be spiritual to receive energy healing. The power of intention causes energy to flow to where it’s most needed.


Dr. Joshua Jackson is our wonderful Acupuncturist that can help provide pain relief.This modality stimulates the flow of chi to rebalance the body.
Reflexology is another modality that frees up blocked energy and promotes healing by stimulating the meridians, organs, and systems through points on the feet, hands, and ears.


Lastly, massage is a great energy healing practice, for it releases tension in the muscles, encourages the flow of lymph, and allows for deep relaxation.
If you’re ready to try out an energy healing session, give us a call at 407-300-5364 or email us at info@heal407.com to schedule your session!

Needleless acupuncture is used to create balance within the patterns of energy in the human body.


When there is a disruption, certain vital organs and systems receive too much energy, while others do not get enough.


This imbalance can cause different health issues and conditions and that is why modern medicine is looking at acupuncture as a reliable form of treatment.
Acupuncture restores balance to the body, enabling it to heal itself and function as it should. It builds resistance to illness and diseases in the body, and provides a higher state of health and well-being.

MPS Therapy uses devices called the Dolphin that uses micro currents in the body to promote the nervous system to tap into the parasympathetic state, the state in which your body is able to rest and digest! This current is also recognizable by our body allowing the system to work at a cellular level helping to heal and repair scar tissue, nerve interference and stagnant Qi .


Here are some of the many benefits of MPS Therapy (Aka needless acupuncture which is a service provided at Heal. in Altamonte Springs):

  • Relief from insomnia or sleep disturbances caused by mental health issues or medication
  • Clearing of scar tissue aiding in better mobility throughout the body
  • Great for muscular and neurological disorders such as headaches, chest pain, facial tics, neck pain, frozen shoulder, tendinitis, tennis elbow, lower back pain, osteoarthritis, sciatica, and more
  • Relief from digestive disorders such as hyper-acidity, constipation, spastic colon, diarrhea, gastritis, etc.
  • Treatment for disorders of the respiratory system including sinusitis, bronchitis, asthma, sore throat, recurrent chest infections
  • Treatment for urinary, menstrual, and reproductive issues
  • Better concentration, short-term memory retention, and decisiveness
  • Reduced headaches and ringing in the ears
  • Reduced pain in the face, ears, and jaw when yawning or chewing

This therapy is safe to use on all ages, body types and provide relief to where you need it in the body. Excited to try this out for yourself? Give us a call at 407-300-5364 to get more information or to schedule your first MPS Therapy session with us at Heal. in Altamonte Springs!

It’s almost as if the benefits of Dry Salt Therapy are endless!

Dry Salt Therapy goes farther than just improving and treating your respiratory system – it plays a huge role in improving other conditions in your body as well!
Ever noticed how nice a space feels when you add a Himalayan salt lamp into the mix? It’s because the salt helps balance out the positive and negative ions in the room! Just like the Himalayan salt lamp takes care of the air in the room, a dry salt therapy booth also takes care of YOU in the same way.


In a dry salt therapy booth, the pharmaceutical grade salt takes care of balancing the positive and negative ions within your body in which helps you do better adapt to stressors and promotes a sense of overall contentment and increased well being! Dry Salt Therapy promotes better physical and MENTAL health!

The dry salt particles in a dry salt therapy booth act as the “bronchial brush” which help to clear out the micro-organisms from the bronchi. The sodium ions are anti-inflammatory in habit, helping to clear various inflammation and diseased conditions including asthma, bronchitis, frequent colds, season dust, allergies and also sinus problems.


At Heal. in Altamonte Springs, we pride ourselves in being Central Florida’s only all emcompassing physical, emotional and mental wellness reset facility. Taking care of YOU from the inside out.


In regards to mental well-being, salt therapy is known to improve mental health in humans. Salt naturally produces negative ions, which are known to have a “clarity effect” on the mind. Therefore, dry salt therapy helps to treat various issues like stress, anxiety, fatigue, headaches, lethargy and even depression symptoms.


It’s no wonder you feel your very best and relaxed after a session in our dry salt therapy booth! It allows you to feel good about yourself and gives you a chance to appreciate yourself – completely whole and perfect exactly as you are.


Relaxation is the best medicine for your well-being. Take a moment for yourself and step into our dry salt booth for a feel good salty session.

Recent studies show that America is sleep-deprived, to say the least! Around 40 million people per year suffer from chronic, long-term sleep disorders and an additional 20 million experience occasional sleep issues.

Poor sleeping habits lead to mental health problems such as depression and anxiety, memory loss, reduced immune system functionality and even weight gain. Not to mention, reduced sense of overall well-being and even loss of productivity.

Why is Rapid Eye Movement (REM) sleep so important?

REM fosters positive emotions.

A 2009 study reported that taking a nap that includes a period of rapid eye movement (REM) sleep refreshes the brain’s ability and sensitivity to process human emotions by decreasing a negative outlook to occurring emotions while amplifying the recognition of positive emotions. 

The researchers believe that the importance of rapid eye movement sleep is part of a process that increases positive emotions while maintaining high levels of social and professional mental health.

A 2011 study from University of California, Berkeley found that time spent in rapid eye movement (REM) sleep can help people with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) minimize painful memories. Researches found that during REM sleep, stress chemistry shuts down and the brain processes emotional experiences in a way that can take the edge off painful memories.

Sleep deprivation also impairs our ability to think clearly!

REM (rapid eye movement) is the deepest stage of the sleep cycle that stimulates the brain regions used in learning. So many studies have been done on REM! When sleep is disrupted it literally wreaks havoc in the nervous system and inhibits our ability to receive clarity.

Sleep concerns may be more likely to affect those with existing mental health conditions!

Once upon a time, sleep problems were thought of as just symptoms of mental health conditions, but now research tells us they may contribute to or even be a cause of them. This also means that treating the sleep disorder may help alleviate the symptoms associated with a mental health condition and vice versa.

Scientists still don’t know why dream activity is so critical to healthy brains, but they do agree that having adequate amounts of REM is vital.

REM is the sleep stage associated with the feeling of refreshment the moment you wake up after a good night’s sleep. But it’s more than that: when sleep stages are interrupted, REM sleep is often sacrificed, as it is the last sleep in the cycle to occur before the sleep cycle repeats itself. From there on out you can see how disrupted REM sleep can literally cause just a myriad of health issues both physically and mentally.

Some tips to combat poor sleep are:

-De-stress! Following a regular bedtime routine and wake up time is essential in building consistency in the body’s sleep cycles

-Say NO to caffeine, alcohol and nicotine close to bedtime

-Exercise or move your body any which way during the day. Could be yoga, pilates, gym or even just light stretching before bed.

-Get adequate sunlight if you can during the day. The more exposure to natural light the better!

-Meditate! That’s right, whip out your INSIGHT timer App and meditate away. Slow down those brain waves with Yoga Nidra at Heal. in Altamonte Springs every Monday night from 7:30pm-8:30pm.

-Put away the electronics an hour before bed. No phone, no tv, just you and your breath.

-Adapt a routine using the LAXMAN light and sound therapy machine at Heal. in Altamonte Springs. LAXMAN light and sound machine uses gentle chromatic lights in goggles that stimulate spontaneous bursts of meditation as well as Rapid Eye Movement… all of this synced to Binaural Beats to help the body relax and the mind settle into stillness.

Until next time,

Peace and Wellness.

We all experience anxiety, there’s no doubt about that. At some point in life there comes a time where stress grows, life happens and our self-maintenance takes the back seat.

Anxiety can creep up on you without a warning and today we would like to share with you 3 ways in which you can naturally treat anxiety whenever it does arise.

Yoga, meditation and gut health.

They all play a powerful role in helping to ease the intensity of stress, anxiety, doubt, fear, restless, etc.

Yoga is a gentle practice of being able to press pause and let go of what no longer serves you. At Heal. in Altamonte Springs all of the yoga that is offered here consists of mindful movement, breath work and meditation.

If you or somebody you know experience high stress levels, trying out a yin yoga class for stress relief is exactly what you need to counter balance being in a constant fight or flight mode throughout the majority of your day.

Yoga uses the breath and specific movements throughout the body to open, release and let go of stored stagnant energy. When energy cannot flow freely through the body it is when we are likely to experience a deeper resistance. With this resistance comes the inability to recharge, renew and restore the body… mind and soul!

Going with the practice of yoga, meditation also plays a big part in reducing stress and anxiety symptoms. So many studies have shown how meditation literally turns off the part of your brain that is always scanning for threats in it’s environment and with gentle awareness, so can you enjoy the benefits of meditation.

Meditation opens the gateway to higher resolve where you not only connect to your best, loving self – you also gain the ability to connect to others on a greater, higher level! Meditation practice should be considered to be just as important as flossing your teeth, but through meditation you floss the conscious and subconscious mind.

At Heal. in Altamonte Springs we offer Yoga Nidra every Monday from 730-830pm. Yoga Nidra is also translated to be called yogic sleep. In the practice of Yoga Nidra, the intention is to slow down the brain waves so much that you are in a deeply meditative yet aware state of being where true deep change and healing can occur.

The benefits of this practice are endless. Increased wellbeing, decreased anxiety, better sleep and overall an improvement in VIGOR! You receive the same benefits of an 8 hour sleep in this 1 hour class.

Last but not least, gut health plays a direct role in our mental wellbeing. What you put into your body, whether it’s food, thoughts, substances etc all create an effect within the gut. Studies show that maintaining a healthy gut through probiotics, stress reduction and through eating whole foods can signficantly decrease anxiety and dperession symptoms.

At Heal., we have found that specific probiotic strains through Amare supplements is key in targeting the specific neuropathways and vagus nerve that connects gut to brain. Not only do our thoughts and emotions and feelings live in the brain space, but also in the gut! No wonder they call our gut the second brain, science has proved that there is a strong connection between the two.

If you are interested in learning more about Amare, we have monthly Heal Your Gut Improve Your Mental Health classes at Heal. for you to learn more information. Sometimes all we need to do to heal is try out new things. Some might work better for you than others but the end result is all the same – a sense of coming back home to who you truly are, without the layers of stress, worry, doubt, fear…etc…

We hope this article has helped you out today in thinking about how you can maintain your anxiety levels to a minimum through the practice of yoga, meditation and through gut healing.

Let us know if you have any questions at all.

Your mood can be affected by a variety of factors, including thought patterns, chemical imbalances, and sleep quality. But what about your gut?

Research has shown that our gut literally functions as our second brain. Since 2013, the US National Institute of Mental Health has funded several studies to better understand how the gut microbiome (made up of bacteria, fungi, viruses) influences your thoughts and feelings.

It’s well known that stress can influence mood, and that may be partly due to the role stress plays in gut function. According to an article published in Harvard Health Publications, psycho social factors such as stress can directly influence your gut’s physiology, affecting the balance of bacteria and thereby impacting your immune system and mood. If you want the gut and brain working together in favor of more positive emotions (in addition to overall health), it’s vital that you keep your stress levels in check.

Thankfully, lifestyle changes can be made to help bring gut bacteria closer towards homeostasis, which will then influence your emotional health. Following these four tips may help restore your gut health: 


1. Take a probiotic.

At Heal. in Altamonte Springs, we carry a specific probiotic gut-brain axis supplement line called Amare. Amare means “to love”. Amare has created the first award winning gut-brain axis system. The specific strains of probiotics in their supplements play a huge role in improving overall physical vigor as well as mental health! Click here to learn more about them. Most probiotics you receive off of the counter do not hold the required amount needed to target the gut in a way that helps to increase the good bacteria in the gut microbiome. With Amare, studies have shown that depression and anxiety symptoms significantly decrease within 30 days of consistently taking the Fundamentals Pack of probiotics and other Ayurvedic supplements paired together in a cohesive pack.

2. Eat Whole Foods

Whole foods provide us with the needed nutrients that our bodies best thrive off of. Nutrient dense foods are key in helping us to feel better not only physically but mentally and emotionally as well. The quote that states “eat the rainbow” is one to live by! The more colors in our diet, the better the variety of whole foods we are allowing our bodies to enjoy. Whole foods not only provide nourishment to the body, but they can also help maintain a healthy balance of bacteria in the gut. Try replacing processed foods with foods that benefit the gut, such as asparagus, broccoli, carrots and more.

3. Stress Less!

Stress plays a big role in gut health as it has the power to actually change the gut balance of bacteria. Reduce your body’s stress levels by practicing relaxation techniques such as gentle yoga for stress relief, relaxation massages, guided meditations, float therapy and more!

At Heal. in Altamonte Springs we are the only center in Central Florida that is a one stop shop for all that you may need to de-stress! Come check us out off of 436 for a quick tour or consultation to better reduce pain and stress in your life. We have everything that you could possibly need, all in one place!

4. Be mindful of sugar intake.

High consumption of sugar can also lead to an imbalance of gut bacteria, affecting your gut and immune system. Try to limit your intake of refined sugar and instead stick with natural sources of sugar found in organic fruits or raw organic honey.

And that’s all folks!

While there are many habits that can negatively impact your emotions and moods, there are many ways to positively impact your emotional and mental states as well. Take these healthy eating habits and steps that are well within your control to further increase your overall wellness and happiness.

Give us a call at 407-300-5364 for more information about Amare or to schedule a stress management consultation to compose a plan targeted towards your specific mood balancing needs.

Chances are if you are reading this there are areas in your body in which feel like they could use a massage. Poor posture from sitting in chairs at work all week, long commutes on I-4, sleeping incorrectly, slouching while walking around in the hot Florida sun and even hooking your purse or backpack on your shoulder improperly can all cause the muscles to become tense and sore. Not to mention the effects stress has on the body too!

One study found that people who received massage every other week, and especially weekly, all had less stiffness and increased mobility! Bi-weekly massage can help with releasing tension that can make your body ache and it allows better freedom of movement throughout daily tasks and function.

Although massage can sometimes be seen as a luxury, the matter of fact is that massage is actually a powerful form of bodywork therapy that releases toxicity from the body. Think about it, on a daily basis your body comes into contact with so many different chemicals, toxins and stressors that all play a part in seeping into your muscles that result in cramping and stiffness.

Seeing a massage therapist bi-weekly can help to remove these impurities from the muscles to flush them out through bodily waste! TMI… I know, but it’s the truth. The key is to hydrate properly before and after massages.

Another great benefit to bi-weekly massages is that long after stressful situations have passed, our bodies will still hold on to the emotions and trauma. Specific massage techniques can help to relieve these heavier and denser energies, especially paired with aromatherapy or energy work.

At Heal. in Altamonte Springs all of our massage therapists can provide you with the specified massage session for you, tailored to what your body AND mind need for that specific day.

Not to mention, when the body is relaxed the mind can therefore be still. Gaining clarity and calming the nervous system is another great benefit from bi-weekly massages. Massage therapy is a great way to maintain overall wellbeing and mental health!

You’ll notice at times during your massage that your mind drifts away into a gentle meditative state and this very sense of ease and relaxation that you are in during the massage can help usher in more peace and tranquility off “the table” in your day to day life.

Know that you can literally dump the garbage and debris of emotional, physical, mental and even spiritual clutter in the massage room and then leave it there… for good!

We are here to help you relax completely. The better we can treat ourselves… the better we can show up for the world around us.

What are you waiting for? Time to set up your bi-weekly massages that are not only stress and pain relieving but also affordable and can be easily maintained with a consistent schedule.

Life happens, we get it, but if you don’t put your health first… no one will.

Time to take the power back into your own hands.

Peace & Wellness.

In this day in age with the access we have to all platforms of Social Media, it’s easy to come across yoga influencers/students/teachers in vibrant yoga pants contouring their bodies in ways that aren’t necessary to receive the healing benefits of yoga.


Try this out, if you are on Instagram search “yoga” or “daily yoga” in the search bar and what do you see? People doing handstands, putting their feet behind their head, and more.

We aren’t here to say that that is wrong or incorrect, but more so that no matter what, it’s going to give off the vibe that in order to be a practitioner of yoga you must be able to meet these standards.

We are here to tell you, that is completely false.

You see, yoga in itself is derived from the Eastern world where the literal meaning behind yoga is “union”. Union of what? Of mind, body and soul.

The intention behind coming to your yoga mat is to shift. Whether you are coming to your yoga mat with previous stress or anxiousness from the day, perhaps you are looking to build strength and endurance not only physically but also mentally – you arrive to the mat with the expectation that you will shift… from one state of being to another.

Yoga is meant to be practiced by everyone. Every body type, every human has the right and ability to practice yoga safely.

At Heal. in Altamonte Springs we only offer accessible yoga to the students that walk through our doors. We won’t turn you away if you’ve never stepped foot into a yoga class, in fact, we will invite you with open arms.

We provide you a safe place to explore your body, tune in to your feelings and with the help and guidance of your yoga teacher – stress and pain relief will also follow.

So the next time that you come across a famous yoga teacher or influencer on social media, do not assume that that is all there is to yoga!

Let go of the expectations you might already have put on yourself… minimize the negative self talk or doubt that “yoga is too hard” “I’m not flexible enough” “my mind never stops working” “I don’t know if I am ready for yoga” so on and so forth, and begin to replace all of those internal sentences with the words “I am enough.”, “I am complete.”, “I am perfect as I am.” because this is the truth.

If you are ready to incorporate compassionate, accepting, accessible yoga into your life… you have come to the right place.

Check out our website to learn more about the different, gentle and restorative yoga options that we offer! We have everything ranging from Gentle Yoga to Yoga Basics for Beginners, Yin Yoga for Stress Relief and even Yoga Nidra (aka yogic sleep!).

You never regret taking a yoga class, for it is on your mat that you can learn how to integrate all of the lessons into your daily life through breathwork, meditation and mindfulness.

We hope to see you here at Heal. in Altamonte Springs for your first yoga class!

The light in us sees, loves and supports that light you have within you.

Namaste!
