A white mansion rises from a patch of lush green trees and flowering bushes. Inside, potted reeds and vines guide visitors toward rooms painted with petal-like pinks and oranges. This isn't a greenhouse or a nursery but a sanctuary for cultivating mind-body wellness. Here, holistic medicine experts blend Eastern and Western healing traditions to prevent disease and promote vitality. Studio founder Kim Fong, a licensed physical therapist and nationally certified acupuncturist, blends acupuncture with physical therapy to address physical and emotional symptoms without drugs, surgery, or gratuitous noogies. During acupuncture sessions, she and fellow acupuncturist Gregory Carey clear chi blockages by placing fine, sterile needles at specific points along the body's energy pathways. This treatment can be used to address the pain associated with fibromyalgia, migraine headaches, osteoarthritis, and many other ailments.

It took a trip to Sedona, Arizona, to rekindle Kathy Zagorski’s passion for Japanese reiki treatments. Inspired by the natural beauty and energies of the high desert, Kathy decided to rededicate her life to helping clients overcome everything from stress to chronic pains through the use of reiki. Kathy asks her clients to lie on a massage table—still fully clothed or clad in chainmail—and concentrate on their breathing. She then proceeds to place her hands on various points of the body, searching for signs of blocked or restricted energetic flow. By redirecting the body’s natural energies and helping clear these blockages, Kathy restores a sense of balance between the mind, the body, and the spirit. This sense of balance can help alleviate the physical and emotional symptoms of conditions such as anxiety, depression, and grief.
