Owner and manager, Karl Alderink, stands at the counter of the new Luminaria holistic health store in Whitehall. On the wall behind him is a display of herbs and baskets sold at the store.
Luminaria is the latest addition to this area’s growing natural and holistic health-oriented businesses.
Located at 116 W. Colby in the Century Building, Luminaria offers many resources for body, mind, and spirit from basic staples (organic herbs/spices, essential oils, books, music, and beautiful gemstone jewelry) to unique and hard to find items such as synergistic herbal and aromatherapy blends, flower/gem essences, gem/mineral specimens, and tools for energy and vibrational healing.
The store’s mission is to provide resources, education and holistic health services for people who are interested in taking more personal responsibility for their health and well-being. Its motto is “ancient wisdom for modern health.”
In addition to its retail store, Luminaria offers many options for holistic health services, including massage, acupuncture, energy work, and holistic counseling and therapy.
Store hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 11 to 6, and Sunday 11 to 4. Services are by appointment.
