Do you agree with the phrase "beauty is on the inside?" Why or why not?
True beauty is the essence of who you are. It is the spirit behind all of you're actions. Do you give with a spirit of generosity? Are you patient, kind, truthful, and joyful? These qualities are the reality of a human being. The physical aspects of will ultimately fade, but one's inner qualities have the power to change lives.

The downtown-based Asian Therapeutics’ balancing acupuncture wellness treatment is the espresso of acupuncture, packing a hefty dose of therapeutic benefits into the tiny cup of your body. One of the licensed acupuncturists will isolate 11 acupuncture sites along your arms and legs and insert thin needles into these predetermined zones of mystical convergence, which is said to relieve tension, improve circulation, promote digestive health, and strengthen the immune system and lungs. Some people may feel a slight prick upon needle insertion and an ache when the needle is set to the correct depth; many people feel deep relaxation or energetic stimulation during the course of the treatment. There is no need to disrobe for the 30-minute treatment, as manipulation points are located primarily on the arms and lower legs.

Bob McCallister's teacher liked to compare a patient's symptom to the tip of a tree branch. Just as the branch can be traced back to its root, a symptom must be traced to its underlying cause?and only by treating the cause will symptoms disappear. Now a master of Oriental medicine, a certified medical qigong practitioner, and a licensed acupuncturist, Bob devotes himself to treating the root of patients? ailments with classic Chinese medicine.
Before administering a single healing technique, Bob examines each patient and draws up a personalized treatment plan. This could involve inserting hair-thin acupuncture needles at specific points of the body to adjust the flow of energy. Bob also prescribes custom herbal formulas to maintain the body?s energetic balance, and he performs medical qigong therapy to combat chronic pain and side effects from chemotherapy.

Gerner Chiropractic’s owner and namesake, Dr. Lynn Gerner, helms a team of three chiropractic doctors who take care to tailor their treatment plans to individual clients. It helps that each of the doctors brings a unique perspective to the practice. For example, Dr. Gerner's background in personal training and her current work as a birth coach account for her holistic approach and extensive anatomical knowledge. Dr. Bryon Cloyd, on the other hand, brings a worldly perspective, which he gained while volunteering his services to patients in Nicaragua and performing complimentary sports physicals for local students. Dr. Liliana Ulloa-Butler—a graduate of UC-Davis—specializes in treating new moms, infants, and children. She speaks fluent Spanish, which serves her well when adjusting the misaligned spines of Spanish-language textbooks.
Regardless of which doctor they visit, patients begin treatment with a consultation and a discussion about the nervous system's influence on physical and emotional health. Together, doctor and patient decide on a course of care that may include massage, spinal adjustments, craniosacral therapy, or passive-motion therapy.
