Forest Acres Well Care: Breathing Wellness Into the Midlands

Health and wellness services in the Midlands have just experienced a tremendous upgrade in quality and care with the recent and much-anticipated opening of Forest Acres Well Care (FAWC), located at 5101 Forest Drive, in the heart of Forest Acres. Family-owned and operated by Pat Sumerell and Misty Clare-Sumerell, the newly renovated, beautiful facility features a wide range of services and amenities, including salt therapy (halotherapy) in a spacious and relaxing salt room; yoga classes, led by a certified instructor; chiropractic care; therapeutic massage; and pain-management care.

    Other wellness services include pulse electromagnetic field (PEMF) therapy; detox services, such as aqua chi foot detox; reiki sessions; and much more. According to Clare-Sumerell, the heartbeat and mission of Forest Acres Well Care is crystal clear: “We are absolutely committed to the wellness of our clients—bringing ultimate relaxation, healing, rejuvenation and pain relief to those in need of solutions that actually work. Our qualified professional staff will also educate and empower clients to live healthier and happier lives by implementing personalized wellness solutions, tailored to the uniqueness of each individual, such as results-oriented weight-loss strategies. Customer satisfaction is the name of the game.” The Sumerells’ professional team is laser focused on providing the best possible healthcare solutions with the family budget in mind.    

    Spring is here, signaling the beginning of pollen season. And as much as 20 percent of the U.S. population is negatively impacted by allergies due to pollen exposure. Studies show that halotherapy can be an effective, natural and safe treatment option for individuals suffering from mild to chronic breathing disorders—including those triggered by pollen. Other respiratory conditions effectively treated by halotherapy include asthma, bronchitis, hay fever, COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease), emphysema and more.

    FAWC’s halogen halotherapy salt system utilizes the most advanced technology available—incorporating sophisticated sensors that maintain and monitor the appropriate salt concentration in the room to ensure consistent optimal results. The ambient salt room has Himalayan sea salt on the wall and floors; and the halogen halotherapy salt system infuses clean, pharmaceutical-grade salt into the room—creating a rejuvenating therapeutic experience underscored by relaxation. The salt spa room at FAWC is truly a one-of-a-kind experience … and the word is getting around. States customer J. McMahon: “The salt room is very relaxing. I have chronic dry skin, a chronic pain condition, and mild asthma. My skin didn’t look dry at all the next day and my pain was nonexistent. It was wonderful breathing in the salt air. I’ll be back!”

    Salt particles are ground finer so the salt does not irritate the respiratory tract, allowing for a more pleasurable and relaxing session. FAWC’s halogenic breathing treatments are a holistic way to clear the respiratory system; boost the immune system; and effectively treat such problematic conditions as snoring, sleep apnea, cold and flu, eczema and psoriasis.

    “We offer very affordable salt spa package pricing. You can customize your own spa package with monthly packages starting at $99. Walk-ins are welcome, and weekend sessions are available by appointment,” adds Clare-Sumerell.

    Forest Acres Well Care is open and ready to serve you and your family. Stop by today and start (or restart) your journey toward optimal health; wellness; and healing of mind, body, soul and spirit, like customer C. Stewart did, who said this after her visit: “We are so lucky to have a salt room serving Forest Acres. It’s amazing!”
