Bel Air small retail business offers various health and wellness therapies

During the holiday season, most shoppers overuse the idea of "retail therapy." However, at Barely Used Consignments on Main Street, owner Tianna VanSpriell urges you to explore the many health and wellness therapies her business has to offer the community.

VanSpriell, president of the Bel Air Downtown Alliance, is proud to promote that her business is not just another consignment shop full of clothes and furniture. Her other concentration at her shop is reaching out to the Harford county community by offering dozens of health and wellness classes in the shop's "gathering place gallery" in the back open space of her store.

This unique idea came to VanSpriell during her days in massage therapy school in 2005 when she envisioned having a place that highlighted non-profits in the area and her belief that "healing and therapy comes in all forms."

Barely Used offers the typical health and wellness classes such a massage and yoga, but also on the calendar is events such as "Lego Club," "Explore Art," and "Belly Dancing with Amartia," to name a few.

VanSpriell knows that classes with those titles may not seem like a therapy, or apply to health and wellness, but she feels passionate that "any form of interaction is the key to good health," and wants to offer a positive and happy environment for all age groups.

VanSpriell is quick to point out the economic advantage of taking part in the classes Barely Used has to offer. While some of these classes may be offered elsewhere in the Baltimore-Harford area, they are often expensive and require a long-term commitment. All of the classes offered at her shop have none of those requirements; some of her classes are free of charge.

So the next time you're perusing Bel Air, stop in for a "Wednesday massage" at Barely Used Consignments on Main Street where the special is 15 minutes for $15 between 12 p.m. and 2 p.m..

Or drop by to sign up for the "Holiday Restore and Renew Class" that is scheduled on the next two Tuesday evenings in December for $10 a class; it includes yoga in the form of restorative stretching, deep relaxation, and discussions of pampering yourself to relieve that holiday stress.

Barely Used Consignments on Main Street is open Monday through Wednesday and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Thursday and Friday from 10 a.m. through 8 p.m., and Sundays from 12 p.m. through 4 p.m. VanSpriell is readily available during all of those times, and welcomes new instructors and classes at any time; her only requirements are a nominal fee and certification in your field of expertise.
