World travel and exploration led Leslie Huddart to where she is today—her own natural health clinic at Mountain Lake Wellness, where she is a licensed acupuncturist. The study of Asian bodywork in Japan introduced her to alternative forms of healing and a stint in a yoga ashram in India helped her embrace the connection between mind, body, and cricket bat. She found her calling restoring these connected human elements to full health with acupuncture and Oriental medicine in treatments that are often so relaxing the client falls asleep. She also performs needleless treatments using pulsed electromagnetic field therapy.
To understand Rolfing, it’s helpful to examine Ida P. Rolf’s founding philosophy on the subject: “As in all matter organized into biological units, there is a pattern, an order in human bodies. Rolfers make a life study of relating bodies and their fields to the earth and its gravity.” While certified Rolfer Michael Valenti holds this notion dear, his bodywork approach is more direct. By manually lengthening the connective tissue through kneading techniques, Michael hopes to ease his clients’ chronic tension, improve range of motion, and make them all tall enough to reach the cookie jar.

'We know that most people can improve their health by taking the right nutritional supplement. Since different supplements target different health concerns, it was clear to us that a product which incorporated several different groups of nutrients would be more effective in moving our bodies towards total wellness."
Among her clinic’s cottage-style furnishings and stained-glass windows, Summer Collier practices Kiiko-style acupuncture, which allows her to diagnose ailments through palpitation. Using palpitation, a style of Japanese acupuncture that is said to have been developed by a blind man, she gains information through touch. This approach can alleviate seemingly unrelated problems by correcting any disharmony in the body. Summer supplements acupuncture with additional holistic techniques, such as herbal medicine, gua sha, and japanese abdominal diagnosis.
Through her mobile service, Summer brings acupuncture to women in labor and clients recovering from car accidents. When she isn't treating patients, she shares her knowledge of holistic healthcare on her blog, discussing things such as how to clean your hair without using shampoo or running through a car wash.
Like many of the patients who first walk through her doors, Cayly Christensen was once a skeptic when it came to acupuncture. Just six months after her first treatment, however, she had already been won over. After spending more than five years learning all she could about traditional Chinese medicine, Cayly went on to start her own business, Organic Acupuncture, LLC.
Now that she’s a licensed acupuncturist, Cayly draws on methods from five distinctive schools of thought to arrive at her own style of acupuncture. Her wide base of knowledge allows her to customize a treatment plan for each individual. So far, she has successfully treated a diverse array of physical and spiritual conditions, including irritable bowel syndrome, depression, and migraines caused by trying too hard to focus on the tips of her tiny acupuncture needles.
