Minal has travelled far and wide to strengthen her skills as an acupuncturist and herbalist. In her quest to obtain a Master of Science in Oriental Medicine, she not only traversed California to attend two different universities, but also ventured to Tokyo. While there, she dove into the wealth of knowledge found in the Traditional Japanese Medicine Seminar of Acupuncture & Moxibustion. She also studied with expert acupuncturists, earning a Certificate of Completion from the President of the International Society of Traditional Japanese Medicine, as well as a Certificate of Recognition from the President of Goto College of Medical Arts and Sciences. Today, Minal applies her international education to ease her patients’ discomfort from addictions, allergies, asthma, hypertension, or their fear of embroidery.

Harmony Massage and Acupuncture's staff members avoid all distractions when banishing clients' stress and discomfort. All of their treatments take place in minimalistic rooms painted in soothing green tones free of excessive decor, freeing customers from the worry that the surrounding pottery might contain snakes. The staff's acupuncture treatments target muscle knots and body tension by stimulating pressure points hidden throughout the body with thin, sterilized needles. During Swedish, deep-tissue, and couples massages, staff therapists spend careful consideration to address clients' pained areas, such as stiff backs and overworked shoulders.
Hot Box Yoga's cadre of yogis, some of whom have earned their 200-hour certification or spent time learning the art in Asia, helps students foster emotional poise and physical strength. Instructors guide their charges through a schedule packed with yoga styles, including core-forging Ashtanga and time-tested Hatha. Within the studio's 2,200 square feet of stretching space, hot yoga sessions usher toxins out of the body by harnessing the flexibility-boosting powers of warmth in the sun-soaked studio. Those gestating tiny humans can build strength, flexibility, and bottle-juggling skills through gentle prenatal yoga classes.
Marie Lehn, RN, CAP specializes in pain management and stress reduction by using acupressure and massage. These techniques help to promote health and well being and aid in increasing energy of the mind, body, and spirit. Since 1974, she has broadened her expertise and education in the medical and holistic fields. It wasn't until 1984, however, that she chose to narrow her focus to those two distinct specialties: pain management and stress reduction. Since then, she's honed her talents in these areas, cultivating skills sought after by Kaiser Hospital, the Arthritis Foundation of San Francisco, and the Muscular Dystrophy Association of Sacramento. Marie is most at home, however, at the treatment bed of Relaxation Connection. Within a tranquil environment, Marie performs Reiki, acupressure, and other therapies to keep patients feeling their best.
