Mara Concordia, the owner of Peaceful Spirit, was raised by a very progressive mom named Shirley. Shirley and Mara would regularly do yoga on the living room floor to help Shirley's back, so as to avoid surgery. Mom relied heavily on garlic, onions, broccoli, hearty bone soups and fresh fruits to keep her family healthy. Through a strange turn of events Mara's entrepreneurial mother opened Concordia Chiropractic Clinic with a local doctor during Mara's teen years. From that time on, chiropractors were their primary care physicians!
Despite all the healthy upbringing Mara, during her wild and crazy late teens to early 20's, managed to start smoking, get married and become quite obese. At 21 years of age, she weighed over 210 lbs!!! This is where Mara's "real learning" began. She spent years learning about diet, nutrition, exercise, emotional healing and so much more. Driven by her inherited entrepreneurial spirit Mara was determined to open a wellness center to share her knowledge to help other people live healthier and happier lives. The dream came true in 1996 when Peaceful Spirit opened its doors.
Peaceful Spirit's Story
The Peaceful Spirit founders embodying the vision of a true "wellness center" introduced their clientele to the benefits of therapeutic massage and bodywork. Over the years we grew to 5 locations and employ over 22 people. This enables us to be available when you need us without having to wait weeks to get an appointment.
The talented and gifted practitioners today still believe that through a balanced use of massage & bodywork, chiropractic care, acupuncture, healthy lifestyle, GREAT food and Pure water people will restore their health. While the results are different for everyone, most clients experience profound personal change over time. As muscles, connective tissues and stress release and an ease of movement and better alignment is restored a greater sense of well being is achieved! At this point many clients become ready to take the next step. For some that could mean improving work situations, adding long over due hobbies and fun time to tackling issues through personal coaching to release patterns that no longer serve them. This is the journey we want to be part of with you. We want to help the world become an even better place by having happier and healthier people on the planet!
