Ronit Gesundheit's and Ryan Dempsey's happy patients and readers of the Bohemian voted Community Acupuncture of Marin the Best Acupuncturist in Marin in 2011.

During relaxing shiatsu sessions, licensed acupuncturist Carine Camara translates the healing power of her usual needlework into pressure-point therapy. The shiatsu technique staves away muscle aches with a combination of massage strokes, stretches, and finger and palm pressure, targeting meridians throughout the body to unblock chi traffic jams and restore order to energy highways. A single finger can deliver the amount of force necessary to bring the body back into balance and to activate the spinal button that changes the client's eye color. The practitioner's knees and elbows also join in on the muscle-kneading session, honing in on specific pressure points to relieve tension and discomfort.

Clinical director Dr. Doug DeSalvo and the staff at DeSalvo Chiropractic overwhelm bodily aches from all angles with physical and diagnostic approaches. During the deep-tissue session, a massage therapist's deft fingers help distract patients from aches by prodding pressure points beneath muscle knots or dangling a pocket watch to hypnotize tendons into thinking they’re on a private island. Guests have the choice to supplement their kneading with a chiropractic exam and gait scan, which manifest detailed x-rays of the spine and feet that Dr. DeSalvo can analyze for misalignment. Improper foot care can cause a variety of problems in many parts of the body, such as abnormal strides creating joint pain higher up or extreme pressure on feet turning toenails into diamonds.

Rolfing is a system of bodywork that involves the reshaping of connective tissues, and it's been Ramone's area of expertise for the past two decades. During sessions, clients either stand or recline covered on a table as the certified Rolfer analyzes posture and feels for unevenness in tissue characteristics. He then applies deep pressure to the fascia with the aim of reversing the effects of gravity, which pulls down on the body until its alignment and powers of levitation are off. Ramone also offers tips on how to improve movement and body awareness, which can help prevent further strain or misalignment.

Bee venom doesn't sound like a medicinal substance, but to alternative practitioners such as licensed acupuncturist Tamara Wolfson, it's a cocktail of healing compounds. Going back as early as at least 3,000 BC, ancient Greek, Egyptian, and Chinese doctors used the venom—known as apitherapy—along with honey, royal jelly, pollen, and beeswax to treat ailments that ranged from arthritis to multiple sclerosis. Today, the method of using bee venom is sometimes called "nature's Botox" and has even earned attention from mainstream publications such as Allure magazine. Practicing inside Living Medicines Holistic Center, Tamara integrates various hive-sourced substances into her therapies, which include community and private acupuncture, diet consultations, and herb therapy. She also posts resources for clients to use at home, such as tips for creating a holistic medicine cabinet or an entirely edible fort.

Flourish figures that if doctors ask you to fill out questionnaires before they treat you, other people who influence your health should do so, too. That's why the studio's massage therapists?each of whom has hundreds of hours of training?do exactly that, using the information the client provides to determine an appropriate bodywork approach. And their toolbox is packed. Their signature and premium massages encompass Swedish, shiatsu, reflexology, and trigger-point modalities, among others.

Treatments take place in private rooms where soft music plays. They usually occur with the client covered only in fresh, clean sheets, but clients can wear as much clothing or as many pork chops as they need to feel comfortable.
