Fitness Adventure Retreat

Host: Danielle Fryer

“I attended Danielle’s wellness retreat at Nemacolin Woodlands Resort in February. It was awesome!! The exercise routines were healing and invigorating. Danielle was attentive and gently guided the class through each routine to ensure that there was gain, but no injury or lasting pain. I literally felt 10 years younger after a week (no kidding). With the nutrition component, Danielle demonstrated how to prepare foods that are satisfying and comforting, yet healthy. Following her guidance, I am more likely to make eating well a habit. There was an added bonus. Danielle is very personable and a lot of fun. There was genuine, hearty laughter throughout the week. That added to the feeling of well being.”

Alik Minikhanov

Holistic Treatments

Practitioner: Alik Minikhanov

I have recently been asked by friends what I am doing different with my self-care routine and have received compliments that I look younger and happier.

In July, I took a week-long vacation to Nemacolin Woodlands Resort. Through that incredible week, I was able to embark on a journey to wellness. I started running and exercising regularly and excluded certain things from my diet. Under the very close watch of Alik Minikhanov at the Holistic Healing Center at Nemacolin, I am feeling happier, younger, less stressed and full of life.

This new found happiness stems from physical wellbeing. I can spread my wings and fly! I invite you to check out the Holistic Healing Center at Nemacolin and the services they have to offer. Their knowledgeable staff will guide you in the right direction to total wellness.

In good health,
Ella Pritsker, Timonium, MD 


Wellness Retreat

Host: Kerissa Kuis

I had the pleasure of attending a retreat in January led by Kerissa Kuis. The day was filled with learning how to discover and confront your deepest fears, how to overcome them, how to turn all the negatives into positives, and how to manifest your dreams. As a result of what I learned during the retreat and continuing the lessons, I have learned to recognize and have already conquered many of my fears. My confidence has increased tremendously, and I now have more self-esteem than ever before. I was always so negative about everything, but now I am able to look at the events in my life with new insight and look at current situations with a positive attitude. I now have a more positive outlook regarding my future. I am so much happier, and there is so much to be grateful for when you change your thought patterns. It is amazing, even in the short time since the retreat, the wonderful things that have manifested in my life. I look forward to each new day to see what will happen, how I can help someone, and bring God’s love to everyone I meet. I highly recommend this retreat for everyone. With Kerissa’s help, taking you step by step, you will also become who you were meant to be and have the life you’ve always wanted and were created for. Thank you Kerissa for the fabulous work you are doing to help others live their lives in a positive light. God has truly blessed you with a beautiful gift.

So Wonderful, I went back the next day!!!

Practitioner: Alik Minikhanov

This was my first time visiting the Holistic Healing Center for an Acupuncture treatment. My husband had the Kila Massage treatment. This is a different type of a spa, as this is more specific for healing the body. Alik provided my acupuncture treatment, and massage therapy to compliment the acupuncture procedure, and was so thorough and knowledgeable. I thought I had a "catch" and Alik found that I had a deep muscle pull. He was so good and thorough, I made an appointment for the next day. They offer other types of services, Yoga and other classes including meditation held there (which I have not participated). It is a 2 hour drive one way for me to get there, but I plan to go back on my next getaway. In the afternoon, they offered a smoothie tasting, where I was able to watch them make fresh smoothies to order through a juicer.

Acu-Vitality Treatment

Practitioner: Alik Minikhanov

My philosophy is keep moving forward. There is always the "what is next." My mind moves forward every day, but my body was starting to stand still. This was just unacceptable. I had heard from the people at our spa about this thing called acupuncture where they put tiny little needles in you and I would feel like new again. So I thought, "‘why not – let’s give it a go." That was over 10 years ago. Alik works miracles. Twice a week I’m at the Holistic Healing Center for Alik’s acupuncture and massage treatments and I’m certain that they are the reason I’m still on the go. At 92 years old, it’s great to still have the ability to keep searching for what’s next. And my body is keeping up!
