At Shanti Wellness, their mission is to create a world where self care is non-negotiable. CEO and Founder Nicole Walcott started Shanti Wellness after suffering from chronic, debilitating pain for two years from a spinal cord injury she received while in the military. With no clear treatments other than opioids, Nicole looked to find safe, effective treatments to help treat her pain — and that’s when she found flotation therapy in 2016 that helped heal her chronic pain. This led her to open Shanti Wellness, determined to bring this life changing therapy to her adopted hometown in Fayetteville. The wellness center currently offers float therapy, massage therapy, and private yoga lessons as well as unique self care items, like tea and aromatherapy products.
