The California Health & Longevity Institute eases Golden State bodies and minds with a comprehensive approach to wellness, integrating five disciplines of care. Licensed professionals perform a soothing array of complementary alternative services that combine Eastern and Western medicines and omit the works of prime-meridian snake-oil surgeons. Acupuncture painlessly engages innate healing responses with hair-thin needles, and acupressure treatments mimic the therapeutic effect with manual pressure instead of slender pins. Energy healing employs touch to influence internal systems and balance physical, emotional, and spiritual scales. Medical-hypnotherapy sessions use clinical techniques that reinforce subconscious signals to achieve deep relaxation and defeat old habits such as chewing other people's fingernails.

Doctor of Chiropractic Dana Zappala believes that the body's well-being is based on the summation of its experiences. At L.A Chiro Spa Malibu, her neuro emotional technique dives into the stresses and traumas of the past that may still be lingering, and by working to resolve these, works to bring the body and mind back into balance. But this is just one facet of the healing approach she and her team operates by. Emotions aside, they also work to ease the physical pain and disruption caused by years of poor posture or one carefree day of somersaulting down the sidewalk. They adjust spines and massage muscles to ease back pain, craft custom meal plans to help relieve digestive problems, and draw from Eastern healing techniques such as acupuncture to guide the body's energy flow.
