MARLA SHUMAN | Wheaton Joyful Holistics
Marla is a Certified Natural Therapeutic Specialist, IL Licensed Massage Therapist, Yoga Instructor, F.I.R.E. Firewalking Instructor, Reiki Master and Teacher and believes in the philosophy of Natural Therapeutics, as well as Dr. Henry Lindlar words that “only God and Nature heal and we are able to bring our body, mind and spirit into balance through proper diet, exercise, massage and bodywork, herbal remedies, and fasting, ample rest.”
She has loved nature and natural remedies since she was a kid. She would make potions of shampoos and soaps and perfume into mixing bottles and spray them around the house or use them like lotions. As an adult, Marla applied this fascination at the New Mexico School of Natural Therapeutics and now makes remedies as a Natural Therapeutic Specialist.
Marla shares her passion through her business, Joyful Holistics in Wheaton. She wholly believes in living a holistic lifestyle and hasn’t had a prescription in over 13 years. Her favorite healthy snack is sprouted flax cracker pizza with fresh sprouts; and her guilty pleasure is organic vegan chocolate. To de-stress, she hits the yoga mat to instantly change her mindset and she is an example of health through her hobbies, displaying happiness through painting, singing, dancing, and meditation.
