Point Del Mar Acupuncture founder and owner Valerie Beckwith graduated with a master’s degree in acupuncture and oriental medicine, but she didn't stop there. Since then, she's performed extensive clinical research, studied at a university in Hangzhou, China, and apprenticed under a master acupuncturist. Each day she brings this experience to her practice, a clinic where she's teamed up with Dwayne Lee, a health practitioner who is also board certified in both acupuncture and Chinese herbology. Both are adept at treating a bevy of different conditions, having had success in the past reducing general pain, dealing with respiratory disorders, and helping their clients overcome addictions. In order to maintain the highest of sanitation standards, Point Del Mar uses only stainless-steel needles that are used only one time before being thrown away—like the motorcycles of rich men.
Acuheart takes a three-tiered approach to well-being that combines blood-chemistry testing, acupuncture, and nutritional supplements. Blood testing may reveal organ function, allergies, hormone levels, and maple syrup content. The results of such testing inform the acupuncture methods, herbs, and diet strategies used to remedy health concerns from lower-back pain to depression and the effects of strokes. Owner Patricia Blake's experience in the field of medicine has taken her from Hong Kong, where she studied at the elbow of a Chinese medicine master, to Sri Lanka, where she employed acupuncture to help relieve the symptoms of HIV-positive children. Building on these experiences, Patricia attends yearly and monthly continuing-education courses. Through these, she amasses information on such topics as respiratory health and how Chinese medicine stacks up against pharmaceutical drugs.
A quaint, seaside spa, Spa Namara houses five poolside pamper rooms where visitors find full-body relaxation and face-saving facials. First, a dexterous flesh fixer will review your skin and design a treatment for your prized frontispiece. As gentle ocean breezes fill the warm room with salty scents, the aesthetician applies the facial to exfoliate and hydrate thirsty skin cells. When overworked muscles threaten to strike, patrons can ask a trained muscle-kneader to prepare a custom massage suited to their sinews and sore spots. Working with soft to moderate pressure, the therapist pinpoints problem areas, leaving muscles relaxed and loose enough to finally break the ice with the circulatory system. As a bonus, Namara's clients can also go stand around for a while in the pool courtyard's calming oasis.
