In both fitness and health care, there’s never just one answer to ‘How do I make this better?’ We’re mental, emotional, and spiritual beings, and the solution almost never boils down to ‘Take this pill,’ or ‘Do these three exercises.’ Whether the problem is physical or mental, treating both the branch and the root of the problem may well involve acupuncture, herbal medicine, and curative bodywork including exercise, stretching, and soft tissue remodeling.
Body Architects was founded as a place where you could get as many answers as possible, under one roof. For example, a patient with a sprained ankle will require first medicinal massage on the joint and surrounding area with a penetrating herbal liniment, and then electro-acupuncture combined with heat treatment (no ice!), followed by mobility ‘homework’ with one of our specialized bands.
For fitness, you need strength, but just weights aren’t enough. You need endurance, but humdrum treadmill workouts will both bore you to tears, and not have much carry-over to the real world. How should you breathe? When should you stretch? And even though you can bench press a ton, why does helping your pal move furniture (to the third floor, with the elevator out) still make you feel like you’re going to die?
Health has many facets. We have them here at Body Architects.
