Craig Holliday and Don Lewis, owners's of Amaya, building a businessAmaya Natural Therapeutics was built on the vision of Don Lewis, a natural therapeutic specialist who found inspiration in the holistic spa movement that he saw in both Europe and Japan.  Seeing a simple opportunity present itself in the location at 230 E. College, he found support and encouragement to realize this dream from his friend Craig Holliday.  Both Don and Craig had spent years meditating in a small spiritual community together, and with Amaya (named after Craig's daughter) they found an opportunity to go forward as business partners.  Additional support came from Don's father Bill, who became involved in coaching them on the financial aspects of running a business, while also backing the funding necessary to go forward. Completely renovating the building with their own hands, including the installation of the deck, tubs, sauna, changing rooms with tiled showers, landscaping, etc. both Don and Craig now enjoy the growth of their private practices within a setting that nourishes themselves and the community.  In addition to their work at Amaya, they both also split their time between raising children (Don has a son Cyrus and Craig cares for his children, Noah and Amaya), tending to their personal relationships, enjoying a wonderful community, and furthering their spiritual pursuits through a daily practice especially focused upon meditation.
