Like children for the four hours after a cupcake binge, muscles don’t behave properly when they are wound up. Put muscles in time out with today’s Groupon to Washington Institute of Natural Medicine. Choose between the following options:

Dr. Victoria Goldsten leads a team of licensed and certified natural-medicine practitioners in healing patients’ ills with natural health care and bodywork. During acupressure, a skilled bodywork therapist applies light to moderate pressure to specific points on the body using the thumb, fingers, elbows, or whatever the hokey pokey commands. This kind of treatment helps to promote a feeling of relaxation and balance throughout the body.
During reflexology, the practitioner presses on regions of the feet in accordance with reflexology principles. Each area of the foot corresponds with a specific organ in the body, and stimulating that part of the foot can help organ systems to function more smoothly and positively affect overall well-being. This technique can produce a state of whole-body relaxation to rival that of a wet noodle in a massage chair.

Instead of relying on a few professionals to oversee a large number of cases, Dr. Victoria Goldsten distributes responsibility among a large team of specialists. When clients need help losing weight, Dr. Goldsten pairs them with a nutritional consultant or body-wrap technician. Those seeking an energy-based approach to healing can meet with a doctor of naturopathology, an acupuncturist, or a reiki healer. The diverse team of specialists is bound together by the eclectic experience of Dr. Goldsten, whose title bears more acronyms than a government phone directory.
