At Luminary Wellness, it’s their mission to leave you feeling grounded, relaxed, refreshed and radiating in newly restored energy through float, halotherapy, and infrared heat therapies. Owner Kari Jo Green is extremely passionate about her work, and helps us understand why everyone should consider a holistic approach to their overall wellness.
What brought you to wellness work?
After an injury, I didn't find a good balance until I combined alternative modalities with conventional medicine. I had wanted more options available to me so I thought why not bring some new whole-person services to my community and empower people to create their own wellness path? I’m grateful for my life-changing injury, for without that experience, I wouldn’t have had the passion, courage or ambition to start The Luminary.
How can float, halotherapy, and infrared heat help people on their wellness journey?
Halotherapy is great for lung and skin health. It's natural antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory and super absorptive properties open up airways, relieving congestion as well as skin concerns like acne and psoriasis. I have a salt booth which was specifically made to deliver the same 45 minute treatment you get in a salt room with a group of people in just 10 minutes in a private setting.
Infrared sauna is great for an immune boost, as well as arthritis or joint-related pain, and overall detox. Our sauna uses near, mid, and far infrared technologies which all bring unique benefits. Every session is also customizable with music or binaural beats and medical grade chromotherapy.
Floating has a myriad of benefits ranging from physical & psychological (anxiety, depression, ADHD, PTSD. etc) to personal and spiritual growth. It aids muscle recovery, performance optimization, and neuro processing disorders. Floating meets people wherever they are in their journey!
It’s also important to note we’ve been taking COVID precautions seriously, from providing services that don’t require any direct contact to installing NASA created air purification systems & sanitation stations throughout the building.
How have these therapies helped you on your wellness journey?
Halotherapy maintains my respiratory hygiene, especially during times like these, which is why for a limited time I'm offering unlimited halotherapy for $99 a month (cost equivalent to 3 sessions). Sauna helps to detox and with overall immunity, as well as a relief for overall discomfort. Floating helps me reprioritize, work through problems, abs obtain a break from chronic pain. It also helps lower blood pressure and anxiety by activating the parasympathetic system and alpha brainwaves.
What's one thing you would tell someone who is considering adding these therapies into their wellness routine?
You never know what these therapies can do for you until you've tried them. Most people need more than one session to discover the full benefit. Just like a prescription from your doctor, you will achieve the highest benefit from a series of sessions which will help you find what works best for your specific needs.
Every decision Kari Jo makes is rooted in the question: How will it make a person feel? In anticipating people’s needs, she’s created a space where you feel uplifted upon entering. So, let The Luminary light YOUR path to wellness!
