About Well Spa & Fitness

The Well of Life Center is blessed by the opportunity to offer our clients, and our community, a place to find solitude and healing. Founded on the purpose that the body has the ability to heal itself, the Well of Life has strived to offer modalities that support this process.

One of those modalities is massage, something near and dear to my heart. Having been a licensed massage therapist and esthetician I have personally experienced and seen the benefits these modalities can provide. The International Spa Association defines a spa as “a place devoted to enhancing overall well-being through a variety of professional services that encourage the renewal of mind, body, and spirit.”

In keeping with these principles, Well Spa & Fitness provides services that are intended to be restorative, relaxing, and, most importantly, therapeutic. In this way, we continue to support and develop the intention behind our nutritional and chiropractic departments: to assist and support our clients with long-standing structural, physiological and emotional dis-ease. In so doing, we strive to help calm the senses and establish a new level of health and wellness.

I hope you find your time at Well Spa & Fitness to be fruitful. We are looking forward to being part of your journey, as you discover a renewed sense of being in your journey to overall health.

Jonathan Weimar

Massage Therapist

Jonathan started working at the Well of Life Center in October of 2016.  He brings over 18 years of experience and thousands of massages to improve the quality of life of those he serves.

“My massage style combines various modalities to tailor a massage to meet the specific needs of my clients. I would describe my approach as both analytical, where I am continually assessing what I feel and how to address it, and artistic, where, through my flow and intention, I desire to create an experience for the recipient. Upon completion of the massage, the client should feel that someone cares about them, that their concerns were effectively addressed, and that their health and well-being moved in a positive direction.

I look forward to joining a team of holistic professionals who effectively identify and address the needs of the greater community.”

Tara Topakbashian

Fitness Instructor

Tara came to the Well of Life Center in November of 2013 after battling with irregular menstrual cycles, digestive distress, and weight gain. After only a year, she was on the fast track to healing, and joined the team as a Fitness Instructor in 2014, coupling her passion for physical fitness with her desire to help others achieve such success and healing.

“I have always been active, but it was only a few years ago that I really found my passion for physical fitness. I believe my struggle that led me to the Well was of divine intervention to direct me to help others achieve their optimal healing.”

Barbi Fury

Pilates Instructor

Barbi loves working with clients at all levels, from beginner through advanced, but her specialty is working with the injured client, whether that client is dealing with a chronic physical condition or more recent acute injury. She enjoys the challenge of evaluating the physical body when it is not working in an efficient and balanced fashion, and then devising a plan that will help to stabilize, strengthen, and regain healthy functional movement to the injured area and balance to the whole body.

Barbi Fury was trained and fully certified through the Kane School of Core Integration in New York City and holds additional certifications in Prenatal Pilates, Pilates and Osteoporosis, and Post-Surgical Breast Cancer Pilates. Class sizes are kept small to allow for more personal experience and a deeper connection to the body and the core principles of the Pilates method. Her understanding of anatomy, biomechanics, and common injuries will make even the most hesitant client feel confident that they can have a safe movement experience while building strength, balance, coordination, and body awareness during a class or private session.

“I love being able to witness the profound changes that happen with a consistent Pilates practice, both physically and emotionally, as clients begin to realize the beautiful strength and balance that they possess within.”
