Licensed massage therapists and technicians at The Gentle Dragon shepherd clients toward holistic health with knot-defying massage and an on-site apothecary stocked with botanical products. During the integrated holistic massage, therapists address individual muscle aches with a combination of flowing effleurage strokes, deep-tissue techniques, and stress eviction notices tapped in Morse code. Strong hands glide over tense areas on a wave of aromatic essential oils, stimulating circulation and kneading toxins from their muscular hideouts. Then therapists wind an herbal poultice around clients’ necks before picking out reflex points on the hands, feet, and ears with gentle squeezes and a swinging searchlight. Each reflex point corresponds to a specific organ function or muscle, triggering full-body relaxation and greater overall health.

Licensed doctor of naturopathic medicine Judy Hinojosa-Sinks begins each treatment at Vitality Natural Health Care the same way: with research. Before drafting a wellness plan, she may check for food allergies, analyze body-composition statistics, view hormone and toxicity levels, or all of the above. This commitment to sound research not only warms the hearts of bibliographers but also helps engender correct diagnoses for ailments ranging from irritable bowel syndrome to anxiety. Dr. Hinojosa-Sinks and her certified assistants then combat these conditions with treatments such as acupuncture, hydrotherapy, and herbal medicine.
