Badger Health Center’s trained instructors help practitioners find their footing with a healthy schedule of yoga, Zumba, tai chi, and qi-gong ball classes. After checking that they’ve donned tops and bottoms, guests locate their centers at Iyengar yoga classes, which focus the mind with deep breathing and build strength with lengthy poses. Unlike a nougat-filled river, Vinyasa yoga’s low-impact, balance-bolstering poses flow, and Zumba's cardio dance party blitzes stress and calories to the beat of lively Latin rhythms. Slow, meditative tai-chi movements and qi-gong ball exercises aim to tone muscles and balance the chi, an energy thought to course through all living things and talking lava lamps.
Licensed massage therapist Kelle Staszak understands that muscles are like tiger stripes: no two sets are the same. That's why she tailors relaxation, deep-tissue, and lymphatic massage to each client's need—whether they're looking to sooth a sore spot or just lie around with their shirt off for a while. During 30-, 60-, or 90-minute sessions, she keeps lines of communication open, adjusting and modifying techniques to locate muscle knots and stay well within clients' pain threshold.
The aim of the practitioners at Acupuncture & Chinese Medical Center is to better the health of their clients. They use acupuncture and massage therapy to halt muscles spasms, renew energy levels, and heal injuries. And though acupuncture and massage instill a sense of relaxation on their own, the practitioners add to the tranquility with soft music playing in the room or seashells to hold up to your ear.
