Mercedez Lucke-Benedict LMT
Mercedez is a graduate of Apollo College in Tucson, AZ and offers a full scope of “hands on” manual medicine techniques. After establishing herself in the traditional massage world, Mercedez elected to expand her services, and become educated on the understanding of the fascial system and “body unwinding” through Cranial Sacral techniques with Dr. Maureen Schueer and Dr. Swidler. Utilizing her well rounded scope of therapies, Mercedez continued her training by working with Dr. Swidler’s invention, the Percussion Table. Mercedez has become quite effective with sustained body release. Dr. Swidler says, “Mercedez is a very intuitive practitioner and does a great job at connecting the dots when it comes to structural alignment.” As Mercedez continues to expand her collective knowledge, she has established herself as a valuable member to the Holistic Integrative team at Medicine Wheel Dental and Wellness Center.
Selina Harris RYT
Selina has been practicing yoga for approximately 20 years.
It was a dream of mine to go through Yoga Teacher Training for many years. Finally, able to leap in, I completed training in 2018. I am so excited to share my love for yoga with you. From 30-minute classes to 90 minute classes, I thoroughly enjoy planning and leading each one. It wasn’t until I was able to teach on my own that I truly understood just how much I enjoy this important life practice. When my first client said “life changing” and others told me how much better they felt, I knew this would be my future. There is nothing better than helping guide someone in to feeling better in their body.
Selina teaches our Gentle “flow” Vinyassa Yoga class. Please click here for details about our Yoga Classes.
