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.
Calming feng-shui design envelops Health in Motion's yoga classrooms, where experienced instructors impart ancient poses to students of all ages, including children, teens, and moms-to-be. In addition to promoting relaxation, the poses build strength, balance, and flexibility. To complement his acupuncture services, Gregory also offers qi-gong classes, whose deep breaths and gentle movements help correct energy imbalances and metaphysical geometry quizzes.
