Rise Yoga's soothing studio begins releasing students' tension with calming, contemporary trappings before they ever set foot in the stress-relieving, mixed-level yoga classes led by experienced and attentive teachers. All of the 60-to 90-minute yoga sessions incorporate gentle stretches and meditative practices, including the beginner-friendly Hatha yoga session, a slow-paced class incorporating long-held poses and calming deep breaths. Vinyasa classes increase heart rates with dynamic flowing movements, sun salutations, and traditional yogic spelling bees in which students bend their bodies into common yoga vocabulary. Yoga therapy works to help students to overcome chronic pain or injuries, and intensive yoga workshops introduce students to the ancient practice or strengthen their relationship to it.

Dr. Ronald T. Weiland doesn’t “believe in fad diets,” as he notes on his website. Rather, he trusts in simple mathematics: fewer ingested calories plus more burned calories equals weight loss. At Ameri-Cal Weight Clinic, he and his staff put this equation into practice during comprehensive weight-loss programs that rely on healthful foods, aerobic exercise, and prescribed appetite suppressants. This mix of support, services, and tools is readily available at eight clinic locations throughout the Bay Area and one that only appears on leap years.
Surrounded by a lush curtain of foliage, the Briggs Mansion evokes an unshakable sense of luxury to those who step inside the shadow of its beige façade. The mansion’s exterior, however, pales in comparison to what goes on inside. As the certified massage therapist behind Energy is Life Heal Thy Self Massage, Pamela Allen outdoes her luxurious surroundings with treatments that nurture sinews weakened by injury, stress, and toxins. In addition to Swedish, deep-tissue, and chair massages, she offers specialty modalities such as lymphatic massage, which supports the immune system by removing toxic blockages. Pamela's aromatherapy treatments also relieve stress by matching specific smells to emotions and memories: rosemary for contentment, lavender for motherhood, and peppermint for the time you walked in on Santa Claus doing his laundry at your house.
