Franklin, MA, July 24, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- A brand new, comprehensive wellness studio. Now open in Franklin, MA.
Duality Fitness and Massage is a brand new wellness studio offering the unique blend of One-On-One Certified Personal Training and M.A. Psy. Weight Loss Counseling along with Licensed Massage Therapy and Infrared Sauna.
Most valuable to this one-of-a-kind studio is the M.A. Psy. Weight Loss Counseling service provided by co-owner Scott Souza, also an ACE-Certified Personal Trainer.
Explains Scott, "I've served as a professional counselor for over seven years before becoming a Personal Trainer and it's that experience merged with my fitness knowledge and expertise that's going to finally make the difference in your life. Four psychiatric hospitals, two home-based counseling firms, a community clinic and a university counseling center have all shaped me into being an attentive and ethical support for people in need of a little direction in their weight loss efforts. The average trainer available for hire has minimal education and ability to address the psychological aspects of a serious weight loss effort. They'll show you what to do in the gym, they might talk about what to do in the kitchen, but the bag of tricks ends there. They won't know how to really address social support, cognitive distortions, self-efficacy, or emotional eating. I am professionally and academically qualified to complete the package on lasting weight loss and lifestyle change."
In addition to Scott’s dual services necessary to achieve lasting health changes for his clients, Duality Fitness and Massage also offers licensed Massage Therapy, also by a Certified Personal Trainer and Yoga Instructor, and co-owner Laura Pillarella, LMT, also a Certified Personal Trainer.
While Scott is credentialed and experienced to affect the mind/ body components of wellness change, Laura’s approach is to affect a physical change in her client’s anatomy that will allow for a comfortable, pain-free existence through overuse syndromes caused by work, sports injuries or aging.
Explains Laura, “I offer Massage Therapy and specialized Certified Personal Training. I also have successfully operated a Massage Therapy office in Upton, MA since 2009.
“My Massage Therapy services are Therapeutic Swedish and Deep Tissue styles.
“My Personal Training focus is to improve physique and facilitating wellness. I offer Personal Training for general fitness improvement; core strengthening; flexibility training; stress reduction; and non-medical anatomical correction."
Duality Fitness and Massage also houses a Licensed Massage Therapist, Shawn Stimson, who offers all styles of Massage Therapy and also Spa Services.
The studio contains an Infrared Sauna, a bonus for clients who wish to profoundly improve their overall well-being or just to relax before or after a session.
