  • Golden Wellness Center
    Though Alex Tuggle had been receiving alternative healing treatments such as acupuncture and qi gong from his mother since early childhood, he had no idea how drastically those techniques would later change his life. At the age of 12, Tuggle was hit by a car while rollerblading without a protective helmet. He was unconscious as medical personnel rushed him to the UCLA emergency room with a serious head injury and a broken left ankle. After days in intensive care, Tuggle went home wearing a cast stretching from his hip to his foot. In the years that followed, he began to feel intense pressure in his head and stiffness in his neck; a chiropractor told him that his hips were completely out of alignment and that he had severe scoliosis. He tried chiropractic treatment, acupuncture, and biofeedback therapy without noticeable results. But after continuously practicing qi-gong exercises and getting regular acupuncture treatments and deep-tissue shiatsu massages, Tuggle's muscles began to loosen. He also made dietary changes, avoiding sugar and alcohol and nourishing his body with Chinese herbs. Eventually, his mind and nervous system recovered from the trauma caused by the accident. Tuggle harnessed the lessons learned during his dramatic recovery and decided to share them with others. He went on to become a licensed acupuncturist and earned his master of science degree in traditional Chinese medicine from Yo San University in Los Angeles. At Golden Wellness Center, he helps heal patients with the same holistic processes that gave him his life back. Together with massage therapist April Hairell, Tuggle addresses chronic pain and adrenal fatigue with hands-on and energy-based massage modalities such as shiatsu and medical qi gong. In addition to acupuncture and herbal therapy, Tuggle offers hair-analysis services to determine a person's heavy-metal toxicity or likelihood of winning a Shirley Temple look-alike contest.

  • California Transplant Donor Network
    The stakes are undoubtedly high. At the current rate of donation, more than 30% of people on the National Organ Transplant Waiting List will never get the organs they need. California Transplant Donor Network aims to change that by educating people and raising awareness. They also put boots on the ground, facilitating organ and tissue donation by offering assistance to 175 hospitals in California and Nevada. In addition to their donation work, the network holds events such as 5Ks to raise funds and invites families of donors to contribute memories to the Donor Memorial Quilt Project.

  • Angel Feet Reflexology
    As their name implies, at Angel Feet Reflexology, they specialize in one thing: reflexology. Their specialty treatment is a foot reflexology session that includes a complementary massage of the rest of the body. The treatment begins as clients dip their feet in a Japanese foot bath before a therapist begins to focus on the upper body including the head, face, and neck. They then turn their attention to the feet and legs, using the ancient art of reflexology to stimulate self-healing and energy flow. Sessions finish by focusing on the back, waist, and shoulders with acupressure massage or with a deep tissue treatment on a massage table.
