When a year of physical therapy failed to heal the neck injury Jonathan Mates sustained during a rugby match, he turned to acupuncture. Like 2,500 years worth of patients before him, Mates found that acupuncture swiftly relieved his symptoms.
Inspired, he enrolled at Five Branches University, an academy of Chinese medicine where he specialized in pain management and sports medicine. Even after graduating at the top of his class, however, Mates didn’t feel his education was complete. So he built a raft out of acupuncture needles and sailed to China, where he studied with acupuncturists and physicians. Upon returning to the United States, Mates spent more than 300 hours in orthopedics training at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.
Today, Mates' specialties also include rotator-cuff injuries, neck injuries, and sciatica pain. These are part of a wide breadth of clinic services, including holistic-healing treatments such as cupping, herbal medicine, and massage.
At Zen Massage Place, the massage therapists erase stress with soothing massage treatments. Herbs, sea salt, or flowers enhance foot soaks before foot reflexology treatments; likewise, thai hot herbal balls or hot stones are employed during full-body massages. Other options include deep-tissue, Shiatsu, or Swedish massage techniques, as well as relaxing treatments that include a rain shower and body scrub for soft skin.
