A Different Kind of Medicine.
Feel better, Live better.
Acupuncture is the art of rebalancing your body’s energetic network; guiding your body’s innate desire to heal. It is a method of encouraging your body to promote your vital force; your body’s innate desire to heal. Healing is promoted by improving overall function of the internal organs, circulatory, endocrine, and nervous systems.
Chinese Herbal Formulas
Chinese Herbal Formulas assist and restore the interactive function of the body. Formulas will perform up to 80% of the body’s tasks, requiring the body itself to fulfill 20% of the work.
Qi Gong is meditation in movement. It is a form of non-aggressive exercise. Qi Gong is the overlap of Chinese Healing and Martial Arts. Qi nourishes the blood with the breath. It improves microcirculation to the brain, vital organs, intestines, endocrine glands and moves blood to avenues of microcirculation.
Founded in 2010 by Danit Polunsky, Dragon’s Lair embodies a “feel better, live better” mindset, striving to create an environment that not only promotes physical healing, but also the restoration of balance in your life.
While waiting tables in the Florida Keys, Danit Polunsky decided to change the course of her life. After much thought and soul searching, an early exposure to alternative medicine thanks to her upbringing, and a large dash of fate, she chose to study Chinese Medicine.
Why Dragon’s Lair?
Dragon’s Lair came to Danit as a complete concept and goal. An environment based on the tenants of Chinese Medicine to practice and study, community and healing.
Danit was also born in the year of the Fire Dragon.
To create an environment for healing and care. The journey to healing is a true commitment. In an effort to go deep within one’s inner landscape, one must first be in a safe, defended space. At Dragon’s Lair, we work to create a space for internal journeying and healing – shielded from the influences of the greater world. It is within this protected space that we can work to bring our focus inward.
To create an environment of communal learning and practice. The practice of Chinese Medicine is an ancient art, crafted and adapted over time. Practitioners dedicate thousands of hours of study and practice to learn the fundamentals of competency. However, the learning process doesn’t stop there. Cultivation is driven by a lifetime of study, interaction, examination, and practice in the work towards mastery. Dragon’s Lair is an environment that houses the commitment to continuation and exploration in the journey towards mastery.
To create a business model enabling people to do what they love, and do it well. As both a Chinese Medicine Student, and now a practitioner, Danit was unprepared to own a small business. Initially, Danit wanted to apply the education received and to focus on healing and learning. Business is a whole different ball game. Dragon’s Lair has given Danit the opportunity and balance to practice in the community, focusing on the complexities of Chinese Medicine, without dividing attention towards all the details of owning a business.
