Having the only board certified NUCCA doctor in the Bay Area, our mission is to assess your individual health needs and then make a proper and precise correction to the misalignment in your neck with no cracking or popping. Utilizing the NUCCA protocol, we understand that once the misalignment is corrected it allows your body to heal and function optimally.

Awareness & Grace — The Feldenkrais Method

80 Nordhoff Street
San Francisco, CA 94131

Carolyn Fleg—Alum Parent

The Feldenkrais Method improves physical and mental functioning by fostering awareness of what we do and how we do it. It is useful for anyone wanting to enhance their quality of daily life and activities as well as for people who are recovering from injuries or ailments. Feldenkrais is a mind-body approach to movement and learning. It is a somatic practice, which means the aspects of our human functioning relate in various ways to each other. No part is on its own. Through Feldenkrais, and cultivating awareness of what we do and how we do it, we learn about how we move and how we learn. Many people notice that the awareness and ease they discover through Feldenkrais classes and lessons often spreads to other areas of their lives.

Who can benefit from Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement® classes? Athletes, musicians, artists, actors, dancers, singers, martial artists, computer operators, students... and more. What can it help improve? Flexibility, strength, coordination, balance, efficiency, learning, breathing, speech, communication, self-image, injury prevention and recovery, pain management, recovery from surgery, stress and fatigue reduction, quality of life... and more. What happens in an Awareness Through Movement (ATM) class? A practitioner uses verbal instruction to guide you through movement sequences. Lessons are often done lying down on your back, side or stomach, or sitting. There are also lessons sitting in a chair and standing though these may appear more in workshops. What happens in a Functional Integration® (FI) lesson? Functional Integration is an individualized lesson between a practitioner and a student and includes a more hands-on approach. The practitioner touches, moves, and guides the student to investigate existing and new ways of moving. These are usually on a table. Students are fully clothed.

Homeopathy is a 200 year old system of healing that views health and disease in a holistic manner. A homeopath takes into consideration all aspects of a person’s health, including the emotional, mental and physical symptoms and strives to understand the particular and complete way in which a person is suffering, limited or not feeling well. The initial conversation between client and homeopath is the first step in selecting an appropriate remedy to begin the healing process. The remedies given are developed in homeopathic pharmacies. They are highly dilute natural substances, which work by gently stimulating the body’s capacity to heal itself.

I have a family practice in Noe Valley, and provide care for both chronic and acute conditions of many common childhood and adult ailments. I am fluent in Spanish and welcome working with people from the Spanish speaking community. Homeopathy is a safe, effective modality that works well on it's own or as a complement to most other health care modalities people are using. It has been an honor to follow and witness the process of healing with the individuals and families I am fortunate to work with.

If you have any questions about homeopathy or my practice, please contact me so we can discuss if working together feels right for you and/or your children.

Paula Mc Cabe—Alum Parent

Paula has been practicing Chinese medicine since 1997 when she became board certified in the state of California. She attended acupuncture school in San Francisco at the American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine where she graduated with a masters degree in Chinese medicine in 1996. Before that she worked as a certified massage therapist since 1986 and completed her training at the Amma Institute in San Francisco and the Acupressure Institute in Berkeley.

Paula has continued her study of Chinese medicine since graduating through working with renowned practitioner Bick Jane Tang who specialized in fertility issues. She has also studied with Susan Johnson L.Ac. since 1998 and continues to attend her classes to deepen her knowledge of Master Tongs acupuncture points and method. Supporting her patients through her deepening knowledge of acupuncture and helping them enrich their lives and health through holistic methods, diet and nutrition is Paula's ultimate goal. Paula grew up in Ireland with a father who was an engineer and a mother who was a teacher. This led her to be inquisitive and practical in her approach to life and has helped her in her work with patients to find a solution to issues they have to improve their health and quality of life. In her spare time Paula loves to hike, garden and cook as well as spend time with her two almost-grown-up children and her husband of almost 30 years. She lives in San Francisco and is one of the lucky people to live on the Napier Lane on Telegraph Hill on the last wooden walkway in the city surrounded by plants and the wild parrots of Telegraph Hill.
