Acupuncturist Jenni Lund backs up her skills with a lion's share of licenses and degrees, all of which she puts to use daily as the talent behind Red Lotus. But the story of how she got into acupuncture starts much earlier—and is rooted in her love of yoga. During her time studying yoga in Kathmandu, she learned the principles of Chinese medicine and knew she had found something she felt passionate about. After receiving her yoga teaching certificate, she returned to the US determined to earn a master's degree in acupuncture.
Always learning, Jenni continues to hone and add to her already expansive skill set. Under her care, clients can choose to add hot stone treatments to their acupuncture session for additional relaxation and her facial acupuncture treatments go the aesthetic route, helping to ease the signs of aging.
Before becoming an expert in the practice of meditation, Ajayan Borys spent years studying under holy men and the living saint Mata Amritanandamayi of India. Since his return from traveling the globe, Borys has become a registered hypnotherapist, a reiki master, and a certified enneagram instructor. He has also written numerous articles and books?including his new book, Effortless Mind: Meditate with Ease?and hosts the Mind Matters radio show.
Borys doesn?t just use his knowledge to stay relaxed while pursuing such a busy schedule. He also treats clients at Himalayan Retreats International, where he helps dispel stress through meditation classes and restores feelings of well-being through reiki treatments. He performs heat-centered hypnotherapy to free clients from their inner judgments, anxieties, and tendency to transform into a BattleBot at times of stress. Borys also can use the ancient enneagram symbol to help clients understand their patterns of thinking and habits of emotion.
Gig Harbor Chiropractic & Massage is helmed by husband-and-wife doctor duo Greg and Keri Messer, two graduates of Western States Chiropractic College who set out together to annihilate pain one spine at a time. One of the doctors or their skilled staff members will begin your exam with a conversation about your back bothers and health habits. Next, you'll receive a complete chiropractic examination that tests your reflexes, flexibility, posture, and more, followed by a computerized spinal assessment to discover if any disks are bulging, shoulders are slumping, or vertebrae have forgotten the state capitals. If a bit of extra dorsal detective work is required, you'll receive up to two x-rays before the doctor reports his or her findings and recommendations for any necessary treatment.
