The team at Lumina Sanare Healing Center relieves stress and spurs the body's healing processes with holistic therapies inside a spacious, wood-floored center.

TMJ treatments relieve tender jaws, and respiratory steams coax congestion and unwholesome daydreams from sinus cavities.

Across three locations, the opticians at Cunningham Vision Centers help customers select from a variety of designer frames and fit them with high-quality lenses. In the show room, experts help match frames with customers' individual face shapes. Cunningham Vision Centers then forges any existing prescription into accurate single-vision or progressive lenses before fitting the lenses into the frames. Lens prices vary based on the patient's prescription, and lens materials range from standard plastic to polycarbonate to the thinner and lighter high index. Clients have the option to add additional lens treatments, such as anti-glare treatments, ultraviolet protection, or a scratch-resistant coating that protects spectacles from grizzly bears demanding to try them on just once.
For eye exams, available by appointment, Dr. Thomas Cunningham channels more than a quarter-century of experience when regaling patients about the ‘80s invention of indoor sunglasses or assessing ocular health.

Pistons player Tayshaun Prince may have a few feet on Dr. Shuyun Xu, but when it comes to treating pain and walking through doorways without ducking, she’s the star. A photo of the towering NBA player and Dr. Xu on her website shows the pair beaming after a session, speaking to the adeptness of her skills and the warmth of her personality. Both her talent and joy stem from a life spent helping others. Dr. Xu’s quest toward holistic healing began when she was 5 and started learning traditional Chinese techniques from her mother and grandmother. She went on to study at some of China’s leading universities and hospitals before importing her skills to Troy Acupuncture Center. Here, her patients reap the benefits of her learning through acupuncture, cupping, and moxibustion treatments.
All three traditional Chinese practices aim to unblock chi—energy that flows through the body along channels. Through the insertion of fine acupuncture needles, pressure from cupping, or the burning of moxibustion’s signature herb, Dr. Xu frees blocked chi and helps assuage a plethora of conditions ranging from insomnia and smoking addiction to infertility and hypertension.
