Bee venom doesn't sound like a medicinal substance, but to alternative practitioners such as licensed acupuncturist Tamara Wolfson, it's a cocktail of healing compounds. Going back as early as at least 3,000 BC, ancient Greek, Egyptian, and Chinese doctors used the venom—known as apitherapy—along with honey, royal jelly, pollen, and beeswax to treat ailments that ranged from arthritis to multiple sclerosis. Today, the method of using bee venom is sometimes called "nature's Botox" and has even earned attention from mainstream publications such as Allure magazine. Practicing inside Living Medicines Holistic Center, Tamara integrates various hive-sourced substances into her therapies, which include community and private acupuncture, diet consultations, and herb therapy. She also posts resources for clients to use at home, such as tips for creating a holistic medicine cabinet or an entirely edible fort.
Flourish figures that if doctors ask you to fill out questionnaires before they treat you, other people who influence your health should do so, too. That's why the studio's massage therapists—each of whom has hundreds of hours of training—do exactly that, using the information the client provides to determine an appropriate bodywork approach. And their toolbox is packed. Their signature and premium massages encompass Swedish, shiatsu, reflexology, and trigger-point modalities, among others.
Treatments take place in private rooms where soft music plays. They usually occur with the client covered only in fresh, clean sheets, but clients can wear as much clothing or as many pork chops as they need to feel comfortable.

As a second-generation chiropractor who grew up exposed to chiropractic techniques, Doctor of Chiropractic Adam Cantor practices what he preaches. Personally, he has never taken a medication nor received a vaccine. Instead of shriveling up and blowing away, Dr. Cantor stays healthy and active, demonstrating the power of chiropractic medicine during hands-on exams and adjustments. After hunting down subluxations in the spine—areas where the nerve is being pinched by a slipped disk or the nerve’s grandmother—he shifts around internal components to take pressure off the nerve and allow it to continue relaying information to the body. His job completed, Dr. Cantor also finds time to give back to his community, hosting teacher-appreciation days and supporting local golf tournaments.
When they moved to California from England, mother and daughter Linda and Amber Scriven brought their talents for alternative medicine along with them. Linda had practiced homeopathy for years and operated her own practice. She had passed that passion for Chinese and holistic medicine down to her daughter, who followed in the family footsteps by becoming an acupuncturist and herbalist herself.
Today, the pair shares its expertise through services including cupping, homeopathy, and qi gong, which are performed individually or as part of larger treatment plans.
