About The Studio

The Well Healing Studio at the Historical Emanuel Alston House

  

The Well Healing Studio operates from the historical Emanuel Alston House built ca 1915 in the heart of the Gullah community on Saint Helena Island just minutes from Downtown Beaufort and on the way to Hunting Island State Park and Beach between Dawtaw and Fripp Islands. The property is spacious and surrounded by trees backing into the woods. Mother Nature is all around in abundance. While sitting on the front porch, families of red birds, turkey hens and deer can often be spotted roaming around while you listen to the whispers of the winds through the trees. Even on the hottest summer days there’s an intoxicating coastal breeze. The house is quiet, quaint and filled with quirky character on the inside where the energy is always warm welcoming and very comfortable. Laid-back low-country style at its finest!  

All services include the amazing Amethyst Crystal Bio-Mat.

  4. Hydrate! Hydrate! Hydrate! Please drink extra plain water prior to your appointment (as well as after.) As well, it’s best to limit your intake of caffeine, soda, and alcohol a few days prior to your appointment.  Especially during warmer temperatures our bodies need extra water to keep us moving.  Hydrate! Hydrate! Hydrate!    
  5. Boost your immune system with extra fruits and vegetables in the days prior to (and after) your appointment.   Please refrain from eating a full meal before a session.  Don’t starve yourself prior to a session; eat light and avoid heavy breads, dairy, and fried foods. Please avoid taking pain medications/relievers and muscle relaxers prior to your session.

  7. Communication is the key to an amazing experience! Before the session, please give accurate health history information and include your treatment goals. It’s important to note any previous falls, accidents, and surgeries.  During the session, please report any discomfort or sensations you might experience and ask questions as needed.  Don’t be afraid to discuss any apprehensions or concerns.

  8. Hydrate! Hydrate! Hydrate! After your session it’s import to drink extra water to flush the stored up toxins in the body out of your system.  Water helps reduce residual soreness.
