You're a busy person. You have a job, you have a life, you have kids maybe, a partner maybe, or maybe you don't have any of those things but still like feeling pretty great.
So what do you do?
You go to Target and you get a cheap face mask and a bottle of wine and you try to relax but then the kids are still there and the face mask actually burns a little bit and makes no real difference and you convince yourself you feel better.
But what if you could ACTUALLY feel better? What if there was a way to take care of your body, mind, and soul?
Well strap in, babies. Because I'm about to change everything for you. (I accept thank yous in the form of flowers and/or monetary gifts).
There is! There IS a place that can actually help you heal and blossom into the calm, peaceful, well-balanced individual we would all like to be. And I'm not talking like... Kate Hudson well balanced either. I mean like... Ghandi well balanced.
What am I talking about? Who is this person that will change my life?
Grow Wellness. Even the NAME of the business explains exactly what they stand for. Grow Wellness is a therapy center that is owned and operated by Kathleen Jaramillo Kweskin, a licensed massage therapist, reiki practitioner, yoga instructor, and wellness product designer living in Danbury, Connecticut. She also has a double Bachelor's Degree in International Studies and Positive Psychology.
Basically what I'm saying is she's super rad. And she knows what she's doing.
Not only does Kathleen hold a ridiculous number of degrees and certificates, she's also traveled extensively to study the practices of other cultures when it comes to holistic healing, rather than simply reading about it. Kathleen traveled to an orphanage in Peru where she learned local traditions. She studied aromatherapy in Indonesia, yoga in the mountains of India, and massage in Thailand before returning home to the United States and starting a practice of her own.
You've heard of the bee's knees. But have you ever actually SEEN the bee's knees? Cuz YOU'RE ABOUT TO.
What makes Grow Wellness different from other massage therapist experiences?
So glad you asked, dear reader, because I was gunna tell you anyway.
Grow Wellness offers the whole kit and caboodle.
Kathleen uses a variety of massage techniques to release tension and balance your body, and each session comes with aromatherapy with the option for hot stone massage.
For those looking for something a little bit different, Kathleen also offers cupping therapy. You remember the Summer Olympics where the American swim team had what looked like big ole octopus hickeys all over their backs? That was from cupping. But don't worry, the cupping Kathleen does isn't quite as intense, and so shouldn't leave you looking like you have a Hickey from Kenickie. (Extra points if you got that Grease reference. I also googled his name so nobody would come for me for misspelling it.)
She also does this rosemary head and neck massage which is amazing (I can personally attest to that.... actually I can attest to all of this. It's all amazing), as well as a rose and lavender facial and reiki.
And for those who are interested, Kathleen even has a tailored massage using CBD hemp oil!
And of course, every week, Kathleen holds at least two shanti yoga classes, but be sure to reserve your spot online ASAP, as they fill up pretty quickly.
P.S. For all you moms and dads out there, Grow Wellness also partners with a babysitting service on site so you can drop your wee ones off to play while you do your thang.
So in the coming weeks, what can you expect from the Grow Wellness blog?
Every week, expect some kind of post regarding a more in depth look at specific types of therapy and a discussion of what they might be good for. Also, periodically, Kathleen will be posting videos of her yoga moves for those who want to follow along at home!
