Today is the official opening of Chambers’ Wellness Center, located on the second floor of Chambers’ Apothecary in downtown Chambersburg! With the completion of our upstairs renovations, Chambers’ Wellness Center is a complimentary facility to Chambers’ Apothecary, and it is a logical step towards bringing patients to optimal health using natural and holistic approaches.
We previously opened our Salt Cave to the public as part of a “soft” opening throughout the month of September, and we have gradually expanded our offerings as the construction was completed. Our services now include Ionic Footbaths, an Infrared Sauna, Massage Therapy, a Himalayan Salt Cave and a variety of Wellness Consultation Packages.
Let me give you a quick tour of what you will find when you schedule an appointment with Chambers’ Wellness Center.
1. Ionic Footbaths
Inside the first door on your right is our Ionic Footbath room. During a footbath session, an electrical current will pass through a set of plates in the bath emitting positive and negative ions to re-energize and detoxify the body. The water in the baths contains a special sea salt and has the mineral concentration of ocean water.
You will immediately experience the relaxation of the footbath, but it will continue detoxifying the body for up three days after the session. The footbath package can be enhanced to include a foot massage and essential oils.
2. Infrared Sauna
Our Infrared Sauna uses Near, Mid and Far Infrared wavelengths to penetrate deep into body tissues maximizing your detox session. While the process does use heat to trigger sweating (your body’s safe and natural detox method), it is a gentle, soothing heat that promotes relaxation.
In addition to being a soothing way to detox, Infrared Saunas offer other benefits including lower blood pressure, skin rejuvenation, cell health, weight loss, pain relief, improved circulation and wound healing. Sessions are either 30 or 60 minutes, and we offer light and sound therapy as an added option.
3. Massage Therapy
Across the hallway, we offer a variety of Massage Therapies including Lymphatic Massage and AromaTouch® Technique. Massage Therapy is a relaxing experience, but you might not be aware that it is also very beneficial for detoxifying the body, and it can help to relieve symptoms such as headaches, myalgia and fatigue.
Sessions can either be 30 or 60 minutes, and the Lymphatic Massage and AromaTouch Technique can be administered separately or in conjunction. Additionally, hot stones can be added on to complete the experience.
4. Himalayan Salt Cave
At the end of the hall is our Himalayan Salt Cave. Salt Caves are a powerful therapeutic healing health remedy for guests of all ages, and it is the equivalent of spending a day at the ocean breathing in the fresh air. Our Salt Cave experience includes 17,000 pounds of Himalayan salt, twinkling lights, soothing music and a radiant heat floor to help guests get the most of their experience. You can learn more about our Salt Cave and see more pictures here.
We offer a variety of Salt Cave experiences including Yoga, Mommy & Me, Children’s Sessions, Massage Therapy and Guided Meditation Sessions. Sessions are 45 minutes long, and when the session is complete, guests can exit the cave and go about their day feeling refreshed, rejuvenated and relaxed.
One of the overriding missions of both Chambers’ Wellness Center and Chambers’ Apothecary is to educate the community so they can make their own health-based decisions. To achieve this requires us to develop our patients’ general wellness knowledge while providing them with a clear picture of their own health.
An Educational Consultation includes a general overview of nutrition, supplements and essential oils. An Advanced Consultation uses a detailed history to develop a program using nutrition, pH testing, Bach Flower remedies and essential oils. I also provide Lyme Disease and Chronic Illness Consultations that include an education on the specific illness and a plan of action including nutrition, pH testing and nutraceuticals.
Appointments and Packages
We encourage guests of Chambers’ Wellness Center – whether they are individuals or a group – to contact us to schedule their appointments in advance for as many of our services as they wish. We offer packages that are contoured to our customers’ needs and specifications.
