Even if they both suffer from a sore back, no two patients are treated the same way at Pinecrest Wellness Center. Clinic director Dr. Ronald Weinstein sees every person as a fresh case, and strives not only to counteract symptoms, but to trace them back to their source in order to prevent them from returning. He and his team combine several disciplines—including chiropractic care, physiotherapy, and acupuncture from Bill Reddy—to reach this goal. A course of treatment might cover rehabilitative exercises, spinal adjustments, or even relaxing massages from Linda Lee, whose experience as an international massage therapist has led her to clients such as Lady Gaga and Gavin Rossdale. And, to ensure patients are really on the road to recovery, the staff also takes the time to discuss nutrition and suggest healthier habits, such as making s'mores with cardboard instead of graham crackers.
At first glance, Good Day Total Health Clinic seems more like an opulent spa than a wellness center. Past the rich marble and plush furnishings in the lobby, vividly painted treatment rooms are interspersed with a serene fish pond and murals depicting cherry trees ironically holding apples. The varied, welcoming decor reflects the multidisciplinary approach to health provided by the doctors, specialists, and technicians who practice here. The team offers state of the art treatments for both wellness and beauty, from chiropractic care and acupuncture to rejuvenating massages and teeth-whitening treatments.
Since graduating from Kyung Hee University, East Asia's prestigious school for traditional medicine, in 1986, Sang Cho has brought his refined eastern practices to the west through For Your Pains Acupuncture. The licensed and certified acupuncturist specializes in the ancient treatment, which potentially help accelerate the body's healing process by stimulating specific areas with fine needles. True to his clinic's name, Sang uses acupuncture to relieve patients of all types of discomforts, from back pains and headaches to tennis elbow, which afflicts players who use their elbows as rackets. Besides treating clients with acupuncture, Sang, also a licensed and certified herbalist, prescribes herbs that fight cold symptoms and boost cardiovascular energy.

Doctor of Chiropractic Richard Piorkowski and his staff at Evergreen Chiropractic Center practice all types of treatment, both traditional and modern. Their chiropractic services range from x-ray-based spinal screenings to corrective exercises that patients can perform at home.
