Inspired by the tenets of traditional Chinese medicine, Acupuncture Center’s David and Kim Yoo strive to create balance and harmony in the body through non-Western medical techniques. Their hair-thin acupuncture needles unblock energy flow along the body's 71 meridians, and cupping sessions draw stagnant qi out from its nap on the soul’s couch. The doctors Yoo also employ moxibustion, a 3,000-year old practice of applying a stick of burning mugwort over an acupuncture point to stimulate and strengthen the blood and life energy. Acupuncture Center works in conjunction with primary-care physicians, often receiving referrals from MDs and augmenting traditional treatments of maladies such as lower back pain, arthritis, migraines, and sleep disorders.
Monica Foster, the owner and operator of Massage Associates, runs her full-time therapeutic practice with a crew of highly trained licensed massage therapists. Together, they work to restore range of motion to struggling muscles and purge stress and pain from overtaxed bodies. As a state-approved educator and licensed therapist herself, Foster knows the value of a variety of massage modalities, including hot-stone or deep-tissue bodywork, which can access aches and pains in lower-layer muscles. The practice’s specialty is structural-integration massage, which can unwind long-held patterns of strain with deep, slow myofascial manipulations and education about how to care for sore, stressed muscles. After luxuriating with a custom massage, clients are also free to browse retail products such as Biofreeze, flaxseed heat packs, and tiny cats bred as portable massage therapists.
