Brenda Carbone and her two partners, Mark Stevens and Kristy Carbone chose to open o2 Wellness Center amidst a challenging economy because of the direct affect their integrative services had on their lives. Brenda, after living with severe arthritis and neck pain for several years, was forced with a decision: To have fusion surgery on her 3, 4 and 5 neck vertebrae to relieve her arthritis symptoms and pain, or to continue living with the aid of pharmaceutical drugs (pain pills, muscle relaxers, anti-inflammatory medications, sleeping pills, cortisone shots, etc.) as she had been doing for several years. Fortunately, the discovery of therapeutic whole body vibration gave her another option: To live pain free without surgery or medications. Brenda began consistently using the whole body vibration machine and within weeks, Brenda was off of her medications and feeling better than she had in years.
Not only was she pain free, but after consistent use for a longer period of time Brenda lost 30 pounds, toned her muscles, had more energy, slept better at night, reduced her stress level, and had an overall sense of well being. Seeing this transformation, Mark and Kristy decided to get involved in whole body vibration and started their sessions on the vibration machine. Almost immediately, they both lost inches and weight, increased lean muscle mass, and felt better than ever.
Together, they researched, studied and participated in learning more about taking charge of their own bodies and how to offer this to the public, so they too could obtain maximum results to a healthier and happier body; thus, began the creation of o2 Wellness.
