At Jax Acupuncture, the hands of a skilled acupuncturist, massage therapist, and hypnotherapist combine, using the principles of Chinese medicine to help allay chronic pain disorders and boost bodies to tiptop shape. Complementing a roster of deep-tissue, neuromuscular, and shiatsu massage with herbal therapy, cupping, energy healing, and moxibustion, the holistic professionals can target ailments beyond pain, too, including chronic fatigue, infertility, and autoimmune disorders. Together, their services can restore balance to the body without a trip to a shady back-alley healer.
At Blue Lotus Acupuncture, practitioners Patti Menefee and Chris Rohman stem pain and discomfort by unblocking the body's energy pathways, or meridians. Grounding their practice in the tenets of ancient Chinese medicine, Patti and Chris free obstructions in chi through acupuncture, traditional Chinese herbs, moxibustion, and cupping. The center also offers tuina, a massage technique that integrates acupoints as well as shoni shin.
For Sarah Wilde, therapy is both a passion and a pursuit. Her journey of healing began when she was a student at the Art Institute of Chicago and found her paintings to be a form of personal therapy. She splashed acrylics onto canvas and mixed them with bits of sand and leaves, creating swirling gases in the cosmos as a way of connecting her inner life with the outside world.
Once Sarah’s studies came to an end, she directed her passion into massage therapy to help people to achieve the same wellness she felt while painting. She explored a variety of Eastern medicine techniques, including acupuncture, reiki, and energy medicine treatments, and she founded Dancing Phoenix Wellness, named for a mythical bird that, according to a Chinese proverb, ushers in peace and tranquility when it dances and does the Worm. Patrons sip complimentary tea while they wait for treatments in a room bathed in the soft glow of tea lights and filled with the scent of eucalyptus and lavender aromatherapy oils.
Licensed chiropractic physicians Dr. Kelly Huber and Dr. Lee Ann Fowler take the helm of Chiropractic Plus's spine-soothing staff, who cosset and correct corporeal aches with chiropractic treatments, therapeutic massages, and customized wellness regimens. The team members join forces to cultivate a full roster of pain-relieving services, such as acupuncture, neuromuscular massages, and detoxifying ionic footbaths. They bolster the tried-and-true treatments with an arsenal of state-of-the-art gadgetry—including on-site x-ray equipment and laser chiropractic tools—and contemporary modalities, such as the Graston technique, a system that utilizes six stainless steel instruments to soothe away chronic inflammation in the soft tissues. To fortify overall health, the staff can even devise personalized physical therapy and nutrition plans.
