Thrive Santa Fe
947 W. Alameda St., Southwest
There are plenty of alternative and niche yoga schools to try in Santa Fe, but when we're longing for a more familiar, Bikram-style class, we head to Thrive (which doubles as a spin studio), where you're all but guaranteed to meet friendly locals happy to share recommendations on the area's many health and wellness resources.
Hoshindo Healing Arts Institute
404 Brunn School Rd., Southwest
Voyce Durling-Jones Sensei was the first foreigner to pass national HoShin examinations and become certified to practice bee venom therapy in Japan, where the practice originated. She was also the first to bring the art, which uses bee venom to stimulate the immune system around areas of stress and illness, to the United States. Combining HoShin with her training as a reiki master, she takes on everything from tough cases of hard-to-treat conditions like Lyme to post-op inflammation treatment. If you can't get an appointment with Voyce Sensei herself, she has several qualified and highly trained practitioners on staff, all of whom have been through her rigorous apprenticeship program.
Eden Kark, D.O.M.
1500 5th St., Southwest
The old aphorism goes that Santa Fe has more acupuncturists per capita than any other city in the world, so to say that Eden Kark stands out from the pack isn't for nothing. He's a practitioner of many forms of Chinese medicine and a Ph.D. candidate in Integral and Transpersonal Psychology, which brings an entirely different perspective to his treatment methods.
Richard William Skurla, D.O.
1012 Marquez Pl., Southwest
Dr. Skurla is one of the area's best osteopaths, with experience handling all kinds of hard-to-treat conditions from Lyme disease to autism.
