REAL RELIEF FROM CHRONIC PAIN.
I began going to Blue Sky with a Groupon for a massage. The massage was very nice but it was just the tip of the iceberg for my life-altering experiences at Blue Sky Wellness.
My daughter was diagnosed with ADD and has an obsessive disorder as well. I decided to stop the madness with Kaiser (insert heavy cursing) and took her into Blue Sky to see a natural path. He changed our lives! We followed his advice and both my husband and I dropped over 50lbs over the last six months. My daughter also started doing much better in school and there has been some headway with her other issues as well. We are some of the healthiest people I know and it is all thanks to the caring people at Blue Sky Wellness.
Now you might think that's all very nice (you can do it too!) but let me tell you this next part is really the kicker. I am a dental hygienist and so I suffer from carpal tunnel, tendinitis, and seriously chronic shoulder and back pain. My pain was almost debilitating. One day I decided to try Acupuncture for the pain in my hands and arms. I swear I did not think it would work.. I was a complete skeptic. I left there and the next day I was completely pain free in my hands and forearms. You can get a hold of me on Yelp if you want.. I am happy to tell you, it is the truth. I am still in shock to this day that it could change my life so dramatically.
I don't understand acupuncture yet.... but I do understand and KNOW that I am not in pain because of whatever it is that Bridget does with those needles and I feel like the luckiest person because of it.
Yes, losing 50 lbs (and holding!) was and is simply amazing (Thank you Dr Shannon) but getting out of chronic pain (Thanks Bridget!) is something I really never thought could ever happen and it did. I am so thankful to have stumbled upon this place. It has changed my life.
If you are somebody who is sick and tired of suffering then I beg you to give Blue Sky Wellness a chance.
Professional and Great Service.
I have been going to Blue Sky Wellness Studio since August 2010 and seeing Bridget Danner, Licensed Acupuncturist. Bridget is a great acupuncturist and is very thorough. She may perform three treatments within the one hour session, such electrical stimulation, applying the needles and burning moxa stick on the affected area. If Bridget is unsure of something, she will even go the extra mile to do research and look it up. She may recommend herbal supplements too. I have mostly been seeing her for chronic left hip bursitis; however, she also treats other things concurrently, such as PMS, constipation, etc. Initially, I was seeing her on a weekly basis; however, I am improved and see her twice a month now and I even look forward to my treatments. I highly recommend Bridget Danner, Licensed Acupuncturist.
Blue Sky Wellness Studio also offers treatments, such as massage and naturopathic treatments. I have received two 90 minute massage treatments and they were great!
Feeling better than ever. Very pleasant experience. I have had chronic back and neck pain for most of my life. Prior to being introduced to Blue Sky, I had tried physical therapy and chiropractic treatment without success. I have now had several massage and accupuncture treatments at Blue Sky Wellness Studio and for the first time in years, I am feeling prolonged relief from pain. I highly recommend Blue Sky Wellness.
Small, friendly, and relaxed. After a knee injury a few months ago I realized I needed a gentle way to start being active again. Talking with Sylvia (one of the instructors), she recommended the Yin Yoga class as a great way to get moving again. Not only is it a great way to stretch out, but on Sunday nights it helps me mentally prepare for the workweek ahead. Sylvia?s expert instruction is both physically challenging and mentally calming- without being intimidating for a first-timer. I don?t really have much else to compare to, but the environment is peaceful, the instruction is professional, and the people are friendly. All required materials are provided, and all I needed to do was show up with an open mind- I can?t think of better place to get into doing yoga.
Welcoming environment, great staff!.
As a complete yoga beginner, the FUNdamentals class at Blue Sky was my first structured exposure to yoga. It's been a great class and I've made it a part of my weekly routine. The studio provides all required materials (mats, blocks, bolsters, straps etc.) which makes it that much more approachable for a beginner. Of course, you're welcome to bring your own mat if you prefer, but as a novice to any new activity, the initial investment in new equipment can be very daunting. Blue Sky keeps that fear to an absolute minimum. All I had to purchase was a new pair of stretchy pants. Plus, the FUNdamentals class is only $8 a session. Very affordable.
Syvlia, the instructor, is patient, aware and genuinely interested in the students' progress. I have very limited comparison to other instructors, but I can't imagine a better instructor for a beginners' class. While I'm not anywhere close to jumping up to a more advanced class any time soon, I feel confident I'm learning the proper fundamentals that will serve me well once I am balancing on my hands with my feet behind my ears.
Best treatment ever!.
I have recently received, at Blue Sky Wellness Center, a series of acupuncture treatments for stress, body pains and overall lack of energy. Each session was better than the one before, and I finished my whole treatment much quicker than predicted. I have had, obviously, acupuncture before, but I felt that the practitioners at Blue Sky much more understanding and versatile.
The atmosphere is excellent and the staff very helpful.
And everything so affordable!
I can't wait to start some classes!
Best Naturopathic Dr.. I highly recommend Dr. Rian Hersher for Naturopathic care. Having personally worked with her as a colleague in the clinical setting I saw that she was bright and talented in many ways. I appreciated her patient education tools as a source of empowerment for those seeking a road to wellness. I am confident that she can help any person who seeks an expert in the art and science of healing.
Great movement classes, great prices, great everything!. I recently discovered Blue Sky Wellness after a long search for just the right yoga studio. I was instantly impressed with the cool atmosphere of the place. It's in a great location, right in the middle of the Mississippi Arts District, The decorum inside is beautiful and tranquil, but also fun and upbeat. The staff are very helpful and friendly, and the instuctors are amazing. Okay, so, so far we've got a great location, great interior design, great staff, great instructors. The most amazing thing about this place is that they offer a wonderful, wide range of classes, everything from yoga, to pilaties, to Qi Gong, at a very reasonable price. I just bought a one month unlimmited movement class card for only $65! That's half what I would pay at other studios. And don't think that you're getting suckered out of anything here. The classes are terrific! So, go, go, go! I'm telling all my friends, this place is super!
a healing oasis and sactuary.
The minute you walk through the door you feel like you've left the rest of the world behind.
Everyone at Blue Sky is warm and kind, whenever I stop in for a class or acupuncture session, someone gently offers hot herbal tea or a glass of water. Just being there reminds me to slow down and focus on health and my well being.
I work downtown and needed a place to unwind and heal near my NE neighborhood...the Yoga classes are excellent, acupuncture and massage therapy soothe me and with the VERY reasonable "Charter Membership" you can have unlimited yoga, 1 massage and 1 acupuncture treatment for a great monthly package price. They offer almost every kind of yoga at times that fit my work and weekend schedule, classes on weeknights about health and wellness, acupuncture and other alternative therapies.
The best part for me is it is an escape from downtown...calmer, more grounded, comfortable and soothing than any other studio/spa I've visited.
I'm in love with it.
