Whether you like your yoga flowing, slowing, meditative, hip-hoppy, or performed by others while you sleep, today's Groupon will sate your yoga needs. For $32, you get a five-class pass to Kula Yoga, Austin's only family yoga center. Yoga traveled the world, teaching his invigorating fitness plan and reading minds. After a lifetime of deeply seeing into people’s inner thoughts began to leave him twisted and insane, Yoga gave up mind reading, saying, “The mind is a door locked for our own protection. I am hungry.” Today, the practice of yoga continues to be performed on yoga mats, though the true purpose of the mats—to induce clairvoyance—has largely been forgotten.
Today's Groupon gets you an exam, adjustment, and introduction to Pilates rehabilitation from Butera Chiropractic for $50 (a $150 value). Your spinal salvation will be tailored toward personal health woes including unhealable aches and past injuries, that is, injuries you will go back in time to receive, using the Pilates concepts of core strength.
Kirsch Method likely wasn?t voted Best Acupuncture Service of 2012 in Austin Fit Magazine solely because it can help treat digestive disorders, headaches, and spinal maladies. That?s what every acupuncture clinic should be able to do. What makes Kirsch Method different is that its therapist, Matthew Kirsch, is not interested in inserting needles and then leaving the patient alone for 90 minutes. He believes in fully treating a patient, which is why he stays in the room and performs craniosacral therapy while the needles work on realigning energies. This alleviates tension in the fascia surrounding spine.
Kirsch started performing the complementary treatments during the 1,000-hour clinic portion of his acupuncture training, part of the more than 3,000 hours he's spent earning his master?s degree in Oriental Medicine. He also learned to administer acupressure, a massage style that focuses on the same energy meridians as acupuncture but eschews needles, much like a porcupine who wants to soften his tough-guy image.
Licensed massage therapists, a health coach, an acupuncturist, a medical doctor, and a chiropractor comprise Longevity Wellness Group?s staff. Together, they provide patients with natural solutions to their chronic aches, including massage, acupuncture, gentle exercise, and spinal adjustment. Though many come in with similar pains, the staff tailors each treatment to the body?s unique needs, physical condition, and tendency to release a banshee scream whenever in child's pose.
Lucas Brown's dedication to ancient healing techniques has led him around the globe. After earning his master's degree in Oriental medicine, Brown traveled to Chengdu, China, where he worked elbow-to-elbow with experts who helped refined his healing skills, specifically his technique with Tui Na, a type of medical massage. Now, back in the states, he puts those lessons to use at Aculete, where he helps athletes overcome pain and the general public recover from stress, digestive disorders, and other ailments. To resolve conditions, he might combine acupuncture with tui na massage, cupping, and scraping, in order to build a custom treatment that treats symptoms, but also addresses problems at their root source. Brown is also an herbalist, using both internal and topical Chinese herbal formulas for healing and wellness.
