Body Wellness Inc.

Co-owners: Donna McGriff and Terri Thomas Address: 11323 Arcade Drive, Suite D, Little Rock, 72212, 221-2243 Start-up date: Feb. 1

Donna McGriff says she and her partner, Terri Thomas, are creating a new image for therapeutic massage with their clinic, Body Wellness Inc.

"We wanted to offer a different atmosphere, a more professional atmosphere," McGriff says.

McGriff says Body Wellness is not the typical massage parlor that existed at one time.

"We stress the whole body wellness concept," McGriff says. "Exercise and diet are important. Therapeutic massage is only a part of that total wellness program."

The five therapists on staff at Body Wellness consult health-care professionals, and the clinic regularly receives referrals from medical doctors, cardiologists and chiropractors.

McGriff hopes this referral system will boost the clinic's image.

Body Wellness is licensed by the state. It offers services ranging from a 30-minute spot massage to a one-hour, full-body massage.

The clinic also offers an on-site service, which McGriff says is particularly beneficial to shut-ins and professionals under stress at work.

"A 15-minute massage during the workday can help reduce stress, rejuvenate the body and increase productivity," McGriff says.

Appointments may be made Monday through Saturday from 8 a.m. until 8 p.m. On Sunday, Body Wellness takes appointments from 1 p.m. until 6 p.m.
