Jasmin King considers massage a higher calling, and her devotion to the art of healing is evident in both her practiced hands and her spirited personality. For further proof of how seriously she takes her craft, take note of her fluency in modalities that range from the gentle strokes of Swedish massage to the targeted pressure of deep-tissue and sports massage. Her knowledge extends even to specialty modalities such as Hawaiian lomilomi, which ties together flowing, graceful strokes with a meditative focus.
King’s healing abilities don’t stop at massage. Her spa treatments include facial massage and body wraps, the latter of which cocoon clients in scented fabrics that release toxins and promote the growth of nascent butterfly wings.
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.
At Turtle Dragon Health Services, four licensed practitioners apply their healing hands to guests while administering traditional Chinese medicine. In addition to providing acupuncture, the clinic also sells tea, feng shui supplies, and Asian antiquities. Turtle Dragon also stocks a veritable bounty of Chinese medicine, such as 600 types of raw herbs, 300 kinds of patented herbal formulas, and three boxes full of the sound of one hand clapping.
An individualized hand-tenderizing session from one of Sullivan's certified massage therapists targets whatever's paining you, reducing both the suffering of chronic conditions, such as arthritis and back ache, as well as undoing sports-induced injuries and boosting flexibility. Additionally, a massage's constant, gentle pressing and pushing can finally convince long-encamped stress-knots and perennial muscle cramps that this cohabitation is so over, and that they should just take their things and leave. Sullivan has special massage tables designed to accommodate pregnant women and men who accidentally inhaled a 10-pound ham.
