Spokesman Bicycles' mechanics obviously ride their bikes to work, but that's not the only thing they do to reduce their impact on the environment. They also donate used tubes and tires to Totally Tubular Bags, use a biodegradable fluid in their parts cleaning machine, and ride whales to work only on special occasions.
But they didn't get into biking just to help the environment?they love everything about the sport, and many of them have been seriously cycling and fixing up bikes since the '70s. At their shop, the mechanics build road and mountain bikes, as well as work with fitters who adjust each bike to fit the needs of the rider. To keep clients safe and happy, they pass on their expertise to riders during free maintenance classes every month.
The accommodating staff at Bike Dojo, a cycling gym founded by Rob Mylls, keeps the community active with two-wheeled activities ranging from indoor spin classes and kid-based ride programs. Schwinn indoor recreational bikes perch inside the studio space, beckoning exercisers of all levels to pedal their way through energetic classes that boost cardiovascular health and finally put Tour de France commemorative bike shorts to use. Bike Dojo memberships grants full access to the facility and every new member joining Bike Dojo contributes to a child in the community through Dojo's program, Project B.I.K.E., which donates a bike to a child for every new membership.

What is one of your signature services? How is it performed?
Acupuncture and herbal formulas are the cornerstone of my practice. I employ bio-communication tools to better understand one's unique constitution. A report is generated that benefits both myself and the client, with charts and graphs detailing organ and vertebral function. Using Shiatsu, Tui na, and Thai massage techniques enhances circulation, which is extremely effective in relieving pain and promoting relaxation.
Out of your entire repertoire, which is your favorite service to perform and why?
I offer a 90-minute traditional Shiatsu floor massage that is preformed on a thick mat. The entire routine is so relaxing?a head-to-toe massage with passive stretching, such as hip mobilization, neck traction, and achilles stretching. It's not difficult to see why most [clients] are snoring in 20 minutes. It makes me happy to give individuals the space they need to just relax.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
In addition to traditional Chinese medicine, I employ techniques to help individuals evaluate their constitution through questions regarding nutrition, cravings, weight gain, problem areas, etc. This will define an individual's "body type" through an assessment of dominant gland function. With this knowledge, miraculous and enduring body transformations occur.
Caitlin Elfving, Debbie McMenemy, and Kim Pfister call their acupuncture practice a lounge for good reason. Upon entering the Flux Acupuncture Lounge?s treatment room, one typically sees a group of relaxed guests sinking into recliners. Patients are encouraged to stay as long as they wish to better absorb the benefits of meticulously placed needles.
Caitlin has a master's in Oriental medicine and uses acupuncture as a noninvasive solution to nagging ailments. Debbie, who also has a master?s in traditional Chinese medicine, focuses on treating pain with acupuncture. She traveled to China frequently during her studies and saw just how effective community acupuncture can be. In practice for more than a decade, Kim is a grad of Five Branches University in Santa Cruz and remains active in the goings ons of the school.
