Nourish Healing Collective — billed as place “for women, by women” — has reopened to offer holistic and alternative services.

Amazing and powerful females have come together to create the space, according to owner Jennifer Gwin.

“It is here for women to come together and get support for healing all aspects of themselves,” Gwin said.

The center is located at 221 W. Rhapsody Drive, Suite 101, and held a grand opening in January. It reopened on July 1 after being closed due to the pandemic. Social-distancing rules are in effect and cleansing is frequent and thorough.

Though it is a women-focused business, services are open to all.

Gwin has practiced acupuncture for 20 years. Nourish grew from her first concept, Sanctuary Community Acupuncture.

A San Antonio native, Gwin has also lived in Costa Rica, New York City, China and Austin. She found acupuncture while pursuing modern dance.

“Western medicine just doesn’t quite have the toolbox that a lot of people need,” Gwin said. “Alternative medicine has a lot to provide people in healing pain and just any imbalance, really.”

Services include IV drip therapy, nutritional guidance, functional and vibrational medicine, crystal bowl sound baths, life coaching, acupuncture, holistic gynecology and more.

“When they walk in the door, it’s about how to make them more whole,” Gwin said.

Topics for classes range from medication and mudras to dance, private yoga and other movement workshops. Some are virtual due to the pandemic.

“I just want everyone to know that they are worth it. Everyone is worth being able to feel good and find the healing they need,” the owner said.

Hours are 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday, closed Sunday.
