Family Practitioners Unite at Shamrock Wellness
For years, they had all dreamed of integrating yoga and massage into the practice of medicine. Just recently, that vision—shared by yoga instructor Eric Banter, his wife and family physician Dr. Amy Banter, and his mother and massage therapist/yoga instructor Linda Banter—came to fruition as they opened Shamrock Wellness at Riverview Hospital’s Health and Fitness Center, in Carmel.
All three practice here, along with additional instructors and therapists. “We’re passionate about finding ways to integrate yoga and massage into the practice of medicine. I don’t know of any other place in the state that’s doing this,” says Eric Banter, who previously worked at Pathways To Wellness, in Noblesville, which he co-founded with his mother.
Along with traditional medical services, Shamrock Wellness offers 10 separate yoga and Pilates classes each week (including a Yoga For Kids), private fitness sessions and a 200-hour training program for yoga teachers. Massage services include both therapeutic and deep tissue.
