About Creative Wellness
For more than two decades Creative Wellness has provided a diverse selection of natural health services to the Greater Lansing community. The local East Lansing business opened its doors in 1990 and has since evolved from the largest Michigan massage center into the largest complementary health center in Michigan.

Creative Wellness originally opened in a 1,700-square-foot space close to the Michigan State University campus, but after a brief time it was evident that the space could no longer support its growing customer base. The business expanded to a new 4,000-square-foot space after only three short years and is now planning to expand again in 2011 to a new, freshly renovated 10,300-square-foot space in the same office park as its current East Lansing home

The business originally consisted of six practitioners who saw the need for a holistic health center in the Greater Lansing community. Today, it is co-directed by two of the original co-founders, Irene Savoyat and Christine Reay, and is staffed by 50 people, including service providers, class instructors and administrative employees. This number will soon grow to approximately 60 staff members within the next year.

Savoyat and Reay attribute Creative Wellness’ continued growth and success to the people they serve in the East Lansing community.

Creative Wellness & East Lansing
“East Lansing has been a great location for us,” said Savoyat. “We have a population here that truly understands holistic health and the importance of taking care of oneself.”

“Every time we have expanded we have tried to stay close to our previous location and have chosen to keep our roots in East Lansing,” Reay added. “We have chosen this community because of its close proximity to MSU and the diversity of people who live here. We have an extremely educated population in East Lansing who appreciates the quality and excellence of the goods and services we provide.”

Creative Wellness services include everything from chiropractic to acupuncture, hypnotherapy, Ayurveda, naturopathic healthcare, Reiki and more. The business also provides a variety of massage therapy, including oncology massage, pregnancy massage, sports massage, rehabilitation massage and more. In total, the business provides more than 20 services and an eclectic variety of classes in movement and well-being. Classes offered at the local business include yoga, Tai Chi, Pilates, Nia and more.

“We see people come through our doors for a number of reasons; some suffer from chronic or acute pain and others are just looking to de-stress,” said Savoyat. “Our clients range from babies to seniors and everyone in between.”

Awards
Creative Wellness was honored with the Lansing Regional Chamber of Commerce Outstanding Small Business Award in 2004 and received a City of East Lansing Crystal Award – high honors for individuals and business that have gone above and beyond to enhance East Lansing’s quality of life – in 2010.

“At the end of the day, our main goal at Creative Wellness is to provide quality services and excellence to both our new and loyal client base and encourage the continued learning of our staff so that they remain at the top of their field,” said Reay.
