Debbie and Richard Maranville have spent the last 10 years helping the people of Prescott find healing and nourishment, beginning with their own journey.
Richard was inspired to become a massage therapist some 20 years ago by the healing he experienced after being involved in a series of auto accidents, Debbie Maranville says. In February 2011 the couple opened The Natural Healing Garden Wellness Center in Prescott’s Hassayampa Village center.
“Richard has the philosophy of connecting people through massage, getting them back on the path to wellness and becoming a better golfer, or a better grandparent, or a better hiker, or a better swimmer,” Maranville says.
She and her husband have also had long careers in the food and beverage industries, so when they got the chance to move The Natural Healing Garden to a larger location at 119 Garden St. in Prescott in 2015 it made sense for Debbie to move back into that arena.
“We both had the experience, but I was the foodie. And so ‘Healthy Fusion’ is something that we created for our business. We created Goods from the Garden Catering and Events so we could focus on healthier food options, working with people for their special events,” Maranville says.
Goods from the Garden caters special events with a menu using all-fresh produce, meats and other proteins to nourish guests at weddings, meetings and other special events. The menu can be tailored to dietary needs including gluten-free and vegan.
The Natural Healing Garden today has multiple massage therapists and offers table massage, couples massage, facials and spa treatments such as heated rock massages and aromatherapy.
Goods from the Garden is now based in Suite 516 at Prescott Gateway Mall, 3250 E. Gateway Blvd., where it can host gatherings at its Garden Event Center or cater events for up to 400 people at locations in Greater Prescott, Cottonwood, Sedona and the Phoenix area.
The firm also provides institutional food service for West Yavapai Guidance Center and Sana Behavioral Hospital, both of which provide psychiatric services in Prescott.
“We have several different folks who have specific diets, and our licensed dietician Katy Kimball creates menus so we are helping people on their overall wellness,” Maranville says.
She adds that she and her staff, who often get help from her daughter Stephanie and entertainment from her two young grandsons, enjoy their jobs, whoever they’re preparing food for.
“Not only do we love food, but we serve food to people who are looking for their wellness every day, and that looks different for every body,” she says.
The team also is preparing to open the In Season Deli adjacent to its mall location this year.
