Three Trees Yoga's RYT-certified instructors enlighten new and seasoned stretchers with a variety of yoga styles in an effort to foster a community of mental and physical health. The serene studio's schedule is filled with a range of classes devised to relieve stress, increase strength, improve circulation and weight management, and honor the sun with a 21-watergun salute. Beginner Yoga: Level I unveils correct breathing methods, physical alignment, and classic asanas (postures). The gentle yoga class encourages a calmer form of fitness, emphasizing balance and deliberate lung maneuvers that can later be applied to blowing up balloons in the shape of Harrison Ford. Beginners and intermediates can sweat side by side in the mixed-level yoga class, which introduces exercise modifications to yogis seeking more or less challenge.
Before he was an acupuncturist, Dr. Kay Kim was a soldier in the US Army. While he was serving, he underwent back surgery and experienced a speedy and complete recovery that he attributes to acupuncture. The experience piqued his interest in the craft, and when he left the military, he studied acupuncture at LA's Dong Guk University. Nowadays, at Northwest Wellness and Covington Family Wellness, he specializes in acupuncture without needles as well as classic physical acupuncture with hair-thin needles.
Eastern-medicine practitioner Dr. Kim works to alleviate patients’ pain, most notably sufferers of cancer, stroke, digestive problems, insomnia, and anxiety. He inserts hair-thin acupuncture needles into the skin to redistribute the body’s energy, applies cups to the skin to suck out blood stagnation, and mixes medical herbs that can be ingested.
Acupuncture Associates offers a wide range of holistic services designed to help manage pain and stress. Acupuncture sessions are performed by the skilled and certified hands of Vincent Valeriano and customized to suit each patient's needs, lasting up to 45 minutes depending on the amount of treatment required. Using a series of tiny needles, acupuncturists promote blood flow to key areas of the body, which can help relieve pain and tension. The expert manipulation and placement of these needles may alleviate back and neck pain, migraine headaches, arthritis, tendonitis, and can aid in belly-button lint removal.
The spine has a big job: it's the scaffolding for the spinal cord, the framework for the torso, and the sole moderator of any bending or twisting the body requires. Unsurprisingly, back pain is a common complaint, and the experts at Rainer Sports & Spinal Rehab Clinic know that it can have a number of causes. Whether it's heating pads for tiny ligament tears or more dramatic treatments for conditions such as osteoporosis or disc degeneration, the team possesses the skills and knowhow necessary to treat pain where it starts. For athletes suffering from injury or chronic pain, sports rehabilitation may be the cure. The physician leads sports-rehab patients through gentle stretches and exercises to remedy any muscular imbalances, a common cause of pain in athletes. Whatever the ailment, the clinic's range of specialized services are designed to promote healing and improve their patients' quality of life.
In addition to traditional chiropractic and physical therapy treatments, clients can receive massage therapy, personal training, yoga, and acupuncture with a licensed acupuncturist. These services are designed to complement the center's rehabilitative spinal adjustments, forging a more holistic approach to wellness that doesn't neglect any treatment approach and helps the body to heal itself.
Peter Shin might have had an upper hand on his classmates when he went for his master's of science in acupuncture and Eastern medicine: as a third-generation acupuncturist, he spent his life in an holistically minded household. At Rainier Acupuncture Clinic, he doles out this gentle, pain-reducing treatment. A 20-minute session has a wealth of health benefits: it can relieve headaches, osteoarthritis, pain in the lower back, or hubris in overconfident pincushions.
