Flagler Beach, FL – It wasn’t the lure of free chair massages or a chance to let the kids play in the bounce house that drew several hundred well-wishers to the grand opening of the new location for Nirvana Wellness on February 7th, but the chance to congratulate Kat Jankowski on her business expansion into Flagler Beach.
Evolving into a successful licensed massage therapist and certified personal trainer after dealing with her own physical therapy treatment issues, Jankowski opened Nirvana Wellness in Palm Coast 10 years ago, before outgrowing the space.
“I’ve actually been in business for quite a long time but I just moved to this new location in Flagler Beach and wanted to get the community involved, let them know we’re here, what we do and how we can help the community,” said Jankowski, who includes massage, pre and post-surgical rehab, functional movement, rock taping, and compression.
Jankowski plans to start hosting free community education events including for children, focusing on health and wellness and exercise.
“As adults we grow up and have all these chronic pains, ailments and diseases so if I can help teach children how to maintain their health when they’re young, it will transition into adulthood.”
As the head instructor for the massage program at Daytona State College, her passion for wellness has inspired countless students and Yolanda Remy was among those out to congratulate her teacher.
“She was my instructor at Daytona State, and I’ve never had anybody go into as much detail as she does,” said Remy. “Everything I know now as a massage therapist, I know because of Kat. I want to cry because this is so amazing and she’s such a hard worker.”
While Nirvana Wellness specializes in massage therapy, sports medicine, and rehabilitation, also located within facility is Vitalift Infusion, overseen by board-certified nurse practitioner Orjanette Bryant, offering a healthy boost.
“Addressing autoimmune conditions, immune deficiencies, performance enhancement, weight management, dietary supplementation deficits, and vitamin deficiency post gastric procedures, antiaging, hangover and addiction care, the vitamins, minerals, and proteins are infused directly into your circulatory system or bloodstream, giving you the maximum absorption into the cell. The clinic also offers intramuscular injects also,” explained Bryant, while taking visitors through the center.
She was pleased by the community’s response to the open house.
“I was totally surprised at the outcome,” she said after the event wrapped up. “Over 200 people showed up for the grand opening and I was able to do multiple small session explanations of the benefits of vitamin boosting through injections or intravenous.”
Inviting other business owners to join the in the grand opening celebration, Jankowski said it’s an organic approach that’s helped her business grow and be successful over the past decade.
“It’s about small business and we’re all trying to make it, so if we can support each other, it’s well worth it,” said Jankowski.
