TROY — When she was a competitive gymnast growing up, Kim Noll competed at the Rainbow Gymnastics Academy in Troy. Her final tournament as a gymnast was at Hobart Arena, so Troy has always held a place in her heart. Noll took her knowledge of treating ailments and injuries sustained in her gymnastics career and became a certified personal trainer and a licensed massage therapist. Now that career path has led her back to Troy, with the debut of Inspira Wellness II.
Troy’s newest business debuted over the weekend when Inspira Wellness II hosted a ribbon cutting with mayor Michael Beamish and the Troy Area Chamber of Commerce on Friday, and a grand opening celebration with demonstrations and prize giveaways on Saturday.
Located in a fully refurbished 1,800-square-foot center for fitness and health at 1471 S. Market St., Inspira Wellness II offers massage therapy, reflexology, yoga, PiYo, Zumba, and group fitness classes guided by certified instructors. Inspira Wellness will also offer Young Living Essential Oils classes and carry a full line of the products, host Movement and Stories classes for children, Spa Nights and other special events and educational programs.
Noll opened Inspira Wellness in Pleasant Hill in 2013. That location has thrived, and Noll is teaming with fellow Young Living enthusiast Cecelia Green to open Inspira Wellness II in Troy. Noll gained her personal training certification from the American College of Sports Medicine and her LMT designation after attending the renowned Lauterstein-Conway Massage School in Texas.
“Simply put, wellness is an active process of becoming aware of and making choices for a healthy and fulfilling life,” said Noll, who has practiced as an LMT since 2005. “We promote achieving wellness through integrating functional fitness concepts, structural bodywork, advanced massage therapy and Young Living Essential Oils.”
At the grand opening, Noll introduced her team of licenses massage therapists (which includes Miami-Jacobs Career College graduates Alechia Brown and Amber Kanet), certified reflexologist Carla Brogden and yoga instructors Kathi Kizirnis and Eva Maloney.
Inspira Wellness II will offer a variety of massage services, including Young Living’s proprietary Raindrop Technique®.
The Raindrop Technique combines targeted massage and energy approaches with pure, authentic essential oils. Developed by Young Living Founder and CEO D. Gary Young, the technique draws from his experience with Lakota wellness traditions and provides a revolutionary means of nurturing physical, mental and emotional harmony. Ten essential oils are dropped like rain six inches above spine, and the Vitalex technique on feet.
Inspira Wellness II’s menu of massage services includes Inspira’s “Signature” Massage, Deep Tissue, Sports Fitness, Swedish Massage, Hot Stone, and Pregnancy. Reflexology, Facial Reflexology, Ion Foot Spa treatments, and Level 1 Photonic Health (Red Light) treatments are available too. Fitness classes for beginning yoga, Urban Zen Integrative Therapy (UZIT) yoga, Movement and Stories for children, and Zumba will be offered. Monthly classes on Young Living and other holistic topics will be offered.
