At 16, Jenna Syverson could barely lift a glass of water. Her hopes for a collegiate swimming career were also dimming, all because of a shoulder injury that caused intense pain. Her physical therapist, chiropractor, and massage therapist were all flummoxed, but after one session of Rolfing, she was back in the pool with no pain. She continued treatment, swam through her degree in exercise science at the University of New Mexico, and wasted no time enrolling at the Rolf Institute of Structural Integration just two weeks after graduation. Today, she helps others shuffle off pain with Rolfing, a massage modality that focuses on restoring alignment. During first sessions, she assesses each clients? past and present health, as well as their goals. Patients perform simple balance tests that involve standing, sitting, and dancing the charleston on a treadmill so she can observes patterns of movement that reveal inner misalignments. This guides her bodywork, which focuses on manipulating the fascia to ease nerve inflammation, free restricted tissues, and encourage unimpeded movement.

Jill Kismet sees the body as an ecosystem. When consulting with patients, the licensed acupuncturist applies principles of pattern recognition developed during her 10-year career as an ecologist. She looks to each patient's medical history, lifestyle, and consumption of charcoal for anything that might disturb the body's delicate equilibrium. Working with acupuncture and herbal remedies, she applies her whole-body approach to the treatment of anxiety, depression, and chronic stress. She also relaxes and rejuvenates the face with a cosmetic acupuncture modality called mei zen. At Bodhi Tree Acupuncture, Kismet cultivates a calming environment. She uses sterilized, single-use needles for all treatments, planting them along the skin as ambient music plays. Herbal eye pads soothe eyes tired from watching the sky for killer birds, and a selection of artisanal green teas from Teance awaits clients after each session.
