Circle of Life Holistic Health Services

Circle of Life is exemplifying the integration of massage therapy and holistic healing into the conventional healthcare model, and provides the largest range and highest quality holistic health services to the Altoona and central Pennsylvania region. Our office has many up-to-date amenities and is conveniently located in the Greenwood area.

Our therapists utilize an array of Eastern and Western techniques to manage our clients' health concerns. Circle of Life's massage therapy is based on models of function, disability, health, and wellness.

All our massage and physical therapy work is guided by the concept of intelligent touch, which classifies our techniques based on the tissue layer treated and outcomes achieved. We use a systematic clinical decision-making process for identifying treatment options to ensure clients get specific treatments geared for their personal outcomes. There are no one-size-fits-all measures at Circle of Life. Everything we do is based on practical skills, thorough assessment, and client’s input in treatment plan.

Our center is also the region's leader in energy medicine, acupressure, reflexology, craniosacral therapy, and detoxification. Our combined clinical therapy experience and revolutionary, integrative approach to energy work creates a one-of-a-kind treatment center for central Pennsylvania.

Massage Techniques

By using massage techniques which achieve specific treatment outcomes, our therapists are able to distinguish between useful, safe practices and those that might be harmful to clients. We use evidence-based techniques to help foster public acceptance of massage and other complementary healthcare techniques, and provide a common language that facilitates communication about various massage techniques.

Beyond Bodywork

Besides our revolutionary body work and physical therapy, the center is a hub of other services. We offer a wide range of counseling opportunities from vetted practitioners in the business; nutrition counseling and weight loss support from a certified nutritionist, fitness training, mental health and substance abuse counseling, and many other specific modalities.
