Chiropractor Eric Wilson began honing his posture-tweaking prowess at Life University in Marietta, Georgia, which specializes in chiropractic medicine. Wilson also boasts certification in physiotherapy and he actively advances his education, most recently with studies in sports therapy. His private practice in Westminster offers individualized services to treat pain and foster holistic health. Wilson keeps patients informed and at ease, offering tips for a healthy lifestyle and explaining each procedure via fast-paced freestyle rapping. In addition to spinal adjustments, Wilson Chiropractic & Wellness LLC eases chronic pain with acupuncture, and the experienced massage therapists on staff also encourage healing inside and out with massage techniques ranging from Swedish to craniosacral therapies.
Dr. Katie Short teaches her patients how healing happens from within. But she does more than talk about it; she demonstrates the body’s ability to recover from a wide range of ailments by performing strictly noninvasive and drug-free techniques. After a thorough consultation and exam, she sets to work stimulating the body’s internal balancing mechanisms with manual spinal adjustments. To round out her services, she works elbow to elbow with licensed acupuncturist Jessie Maxwell. Jessie triggers some of the same healing energies as Dr. Short, but with hair-thin needles instead of adjustments.
The services at Westminster Community Acupuncture are all about letting the body heal itself. The team there helps patrons avoid invasive surgeries and drugs with side effects with simple procedures, many of them thousands of years old. Thin, single-use needles spur our natural self-healing powers during acupuncture sessions, which are intended to target energy centers and bolster immune response and improve cellular function. Massage, whether it is Swedish, pre-natal, or one of a range of other styles, uses pressure on the body to bring various parts into harmony. Cupping, on the other hand, uses a warm cup to apply suction to the body, making it in some ways the inverse of massage, though both techniques can treat a wide range of discomfort and ailments.
Located in Sears stores or at adjacent offices, Sears Optical's independent optometrists screen peepers to determine accurate prescriptions and diagnose any health problems. As doctors position a refractive device over the eyes, flipping through lenses of varying strengths, patients describe the level of clarity with which they can see the purple zebra dancing in the far corner. In addition to the prescriptive exam, doctors may use eye drops to dilate the pupil to scrutinize the retina.
Building on his experience as a chi gong practitioner and martial artist, R. Scott Malone began practicing acupuncture and herbal medicine in 1998. Since then, as a licensed acupuncturist and the owner of Dragon Turtle Acupuncture and Healing Arts, he's combined these experiences with a thorough knowledge of the human body to help clients heal. Using acupuncture needles or acupressure techniques, he taps into each client's meridian system to regulate their energy pathways. Both processes work to restore the body's internal energy flow, addressing issues ranging from migraines and illness to addiction and other mental disorders.
Lasers have long been employed to destroy unwanted hair and planets, but the technicians at Vitality Weight Loss & Wellness use them for therapeutic purposes. In fact, low-level, or cold laser therapy, can help assuage a wide range of health issues. Arthritis pain, spider veins, and even scars can begin to melt away as the laser light triggers a natural healing process within the body. Technicians can even target specific acupuncture points to jump start healing faster than traditional needles can.
But pain and blemishes aren't the technicians' only target. They also home in on unwanted habits, such as smoking. Acupuncture points still act as their road map as they aim their lasers at specific areas that may play a role in decreasing symptoms of nicotine withdrawal and cravings. A similar technique is used to spur weight loss, in which the techs aim instead at the acupuncture points that control the nervous system's hormonal balance.
