WWR Article Summary (tl;dr) The “Urban’s Edge Holistic Wellness Studio” offers wellness products as well as sessions and workshops in yoga, Reiki, meditation, tarot and other spiritual healing practices.
Stacey Martin knew she had to expand her Urban’s Edge essential oil spray line when it remained as a top seller for 60 consecutive days.
“This was during November and December, my busiest season,” said Martin, owner of the Urban Post, a business on Market Street. “It sold over our handbags.”
As a result, she decided to open the Urban’s Edge Holistic Wellness Studio in the back portion of her store location.
The studio, which opened in March, offers wellness products as well as sessions and workshops in yoga, Reiki, meditation, tarot and other spiritual healing practices.
Amy Davis, of New Columbia, said she never considered holistic medicine until a friend recommended she explore Urban’s Edge. Now, she visits regularly.
“I found it to be very beneficial to me,” said Davis. She explained that the yoga and meditation classes helped ease her muscle spasms and stress levels.
Helping people with pain issues is fulfilling, Martin notes. She began using essential oils to manage the pain from her own chronic illness.
“It is wonderful when someone walks in with pain, tries on the spray in the dressing room and leaves without that pain,” she said.
Eileen Dgien works as a tarot practitoner at the Urban’s Edge and her own studio, Celestial Winds in Williamsport. While many people view tarot as learning about a fixed fate, Dgien said it actually works more as a form of counseling.
She said the cards respond to the energy surrounding the client’s question. If a Tower card comes up during a reading for a person thinking about moving, it could be read as advice to move due to a feeling of instability. The practice should focus on helping clients work through their feelings and options, said Dgien.
