The team of holistic healers at G & L Acupuncture and Wellness Center manipulates the body’s healing energies from the inside out with combinations of acupuncture, massage, and Chinese herbs. Disharmonious meridians wreaking havoc in the form of chronic pain, digestive issues, or headaches come into alignment with acupuncture or Tuina massage. Chinese herbs combine the benefits of plant-based medications with the joy of swallowing pills to maintain the therapeutic momentum of acupuncture and Tuina massage.
Although they adhere to the same philosophy of holistic healing, each member of the team brings their own unique skill set and experiences to the practice. Two acupuncturists with backgrounds working in a 500-bed Chinese hospital join together with an acupuncturist who trained in physical therapy and one who trained in applied physics.
Heat permeates Bikram Yoga West Linn’s sprawling studios, whose circling ceiling fans symbolize the constantly flowing movement that takes place in classes below them. The 105-degree temperature loosens muscles and releases toxins, as students flow through Bikram’s 26 poses, taught by 16 instructors. In this setting, instructors helps students of all levels get the most out of Bikram yoga by building strength and developing the flexibility of an astronaut who can rap, cook, and touch her toes while freestyling about beef stroganoff. For 90 minutes, teachers help pupils control their breathing, resulting in more oxygenated blood.
With more than 10,000 eye exams under her belt and an arsenal of high-tech preventative care equipment at her fingertips, Dr. Ann Woods helps her patients protect their precious peepers.

An eco-friendly office, Modern Eyez opts to keep digital records instead of wasting paper and never makes lenses with the fruit of endangered monocle trees.
The mission of Body and Brain Yoga—alongside its affiliate yoga centers—is to make yoga accessible to everyone, everywhere. To this end, each team of instructors modulate movements based on Korean sun do to match each students’ needs. Classes emphasize aligning the body and mind equally through stretches, breathing exercises, and meditation, and each session is capped off by a 10-minute tea time, during which students and instructors can socialize or reenact Alice in Wonderland's interview with the Easter Bunny.
As a member of the Crown Council, Dr. Westover keeps his veteran staff on its toes with continued advanced training and arms it with the most starship-compatible teeth-cleaning technology available. During your exam ($66 value), Dr. Westover thoroughly inspects your mouth's pointy denizens while you lie back and daydream about what a phoenix tastes like. Next, a series of x-rays (depending on need, up to $115 value) scans your oral cavern's stalactites and stalagmites for undesirable enamel elements, such as the microscopic organized-crime syndicate known as The Cavity. Once they've successfully disengaged your mouth's various bear traps, Dr. Westover will move in to scrub and buff the pearliness back into your whites ($102 value)—sending your jerky-gnashers home with a clean bill of health. This deal also includes a fluoride treatment ($45 value).
As a pediatric dentist, Dr. Yip strives to get children involved and excited about their dental care while polishing their miniature pearls with state-of-the-art equipment in a vibrant, rainforest-themed office.

A fluoride treatment, either applied topically or ingested, helps make dental dandies look spick-and-span, and x-rays help identify young werewolves by exposing their buried fangs. If x-rays aren't needed during the initial appointment, this Groupon can be used over two appointments for x-rays needed in the future.
