Though it happened under unfortunate circumstances, Dr. Tara Urschel discovered chiropractic care at a very young age. At 12, Tara sought treatment due to injuries she received as a competitive figure skater. As she rebounded, Tara realized the benefits of chiropractic, and later, after teaching international athletes under the supervision of Olympic medalist Sergei Chetverukhin, she decided she wanted to help others achieve wellness in the same way. While training at New York Chiropractic College, she met her husband, Dr. Michael Urschel. Together, at Ashburn Medical Spa & Wellness Center, they help clients achieve optimal health through chiropractic care, neurological consultations, herbal medicine, and nutrition counseling.

Seasoned vascular surgeons Dr. Garth Rosenberg and Dr. Paul McNeill lead a knowledgeable staff in de-cluttering capillary-laced calves with contemporary sclerotherapy treatments at Capitol Vein and Laser Center. Experts destroy spider veins' superficial matrices of red, blue, and purple across legs by injecting slender microneedles under the skin to rapidly dispense a potent medication. The minimally painful sessions last 10–30 minutes depending on the number of areas treated and length of time needed for legs to achieve closure with their departing blemishes. Patients require zero downtime after the treatment and can promptly ditch the earplugs they used to keep legs' choruses of “The Itsy Bitsy Spider” from keeping them up at night. In out-of-office hours, Dr. Rosenberg and Dr. McNeill indulge an altruistic streak with a community scholarship fund and overseas pro bono medical care.
