Private ShenJing acupressure sessions couple massage with an exploration of internal conflicts, which can translate into chronic pain and fatigue. During treatments, clients lie atop biomats, whose warming infrared rays, negative ions, and amethyst channels can speed healing by stimulating cell regeneration.
The 2.5-hour acupressure facelift course teaches participants to use massage techniques to tone their faces and boost circulation, offsetting signs of aging. For class times, see the beauty class page.
Core Health Institute
Esther McCormick is a licensed acupuncturist, but she also displays a broader familiarity with Traditional Chinese Medicine—and its mutually supportive interactions with Western medicine—at her clinic, Core Health Clinic. McCormick and her team don’t restrict their work to treating clients, however; they also emphasize preventative treatments clients can perform on themselves. Beauty classes teach students to interpret the ingredients of their skincare products or to craft toxin-free products of their own, ranging from body butter to deodorant. An ear acupressure course, meanwhile, teaches participants to relieve their own stresses without rolling down a gravel road to approximate hot-stone massage. Even the clinic’s private acupressure treatments split time between the therapeutic massage and instruction on self-healing techniques that clients can use at home.
