When you enter Samantha Manka-Segal’s office in the heart of the Palisades in Los Angeles, California, you are greeted by the soft noise of bells jingling from the doorknob, a warm cup of tea, and positive energy that radiates from Manka-Segal herself. Her intentionally designed space beams with natural light and plants and could make anyone forget about the stress of the outside world.
Manka-Segal is a health and wellness expert and the founder of Aqu, an acupuncture wellness studio. As Aqu says in their mission statement, they believe that the way the body feels influences a person's mental and physical health and happiness.
