During a 30-minute session, the acupuncturist inserts hair-thin, sterile needles at strategic points across the body to block and redirect the body's flow of energy. This process is designed to help foster recovery from a range of ailments, from chronic pain and headache to digestive issues and asthma.
Peninsula Pain & Rehabilitation Center
Dr. Michael Cook sees a person's health directly correlating with the condition of their nervous system. Following this logic, virtually every illness and ailment can be traced to the spinal cord, which transmits electric signals between the brain and the body's complex system of blinking traffic lights. Though skilled in such far-reaching, drug-free techniques as acupuncture and Gua Sha, Dr. Cook and his team primarily focus on chronic pain in the neck and lower back. Dr. Cook thoroughly examines spines to assuage soreness, hunting for herniated discs with hands and x-rays before nudging them into place with adjustments or taking pressure off with gentle, FDA-cleared lumbar decompression techniques. Dry hydrotherapy beds augment pain relief by massaging muscles from behind a waterproof barrier with a series of warm-water jets, which knead away tension and boost circulation as they rove over the back.
