Back pain may be common, but as the chiropractors at Copiague Chiropractic see it, that's no reason for anyone to live with it. They look for the deep causes of discomfort in spinal alignment and nerve function. Then, they devise a treatment plan. They have a lot of strategies at their disposal: manual adjustments are a common way to free pinched nerves and restore range of motion, but the chiropractors also use innovations such as ultrasound therapy, traction tables, and special adjustment instruments to make precise changes in the body. But patients don't need to study up on all the different techniques—chiropractors, who speak both Spanish and Polish, spend lots of time explaining both their findings and the recommended treatments.
Joseph D'Antona, The Balance Health & Wellness Center's managing director, heads a practice that won Long Island Press's Best Acupuncturist and Best Massage awards for 2013. He uses his advanced certifications in NAET allergy elimination to naturally ride allergies through acupuncture. Collaborating with this expert team of therapists, D'Antona offers services to reduce pain, eliminate stress, and remove toxins. Sessions in the far-infrared sauna and water-fueled colon-hydrotherapy sessions promote wellness and are just two of the center's 25 salutary treatments. Spa procedures, such as cleansing, exfoliating facials, soothing hot-stone massages, and acoustic-wave cellulite-reduction therapy beautify bodies and promote a sense of deep relaxation. D'Antona takes a holistic approach to improving the health of clients, and he and the staff make communication a priority throughout each guest's treatment experience.
For Anti-Aging & Cosmetic Recovery Centers, Inc. owner and founder Dr. Philip Muench, a patients' experience of health and wellness should go beyond taking deep breaths for stethoscope ears and kicking uncontrollably during reflex tests. His broader interpretation of health combines practices such as exercise, nutrition, weight loss, and microcurrent aesthetic treatments to cover patients inside and out.
Along with his team and a fleet of technologically enhanced aesthetic tools, the doctor fights aging to restore his clients' youthful glow and their ability to jump on a trampoline without breaking anything. Anti-aging treatments include a nonsurgical face-lift that uses electrical current to firm skin, enhance blood circulation, and improve lymphatic drainage.
At Angel Touch Laser, Noelle, a spa technician, uses advanced technology to help clients attain younger-looking physiques and heightened self-confidence. Her signature treatment, laser hair removal, uses heat sent from a laser device to remove hair and discourage future growth. Noelle applies the treatment to many areas of the body, including the face, legs, arms, and Brazilian zone. Through wrinkle-reduction procedures, photo-rejuvenation, and UV teeth-whitening treatments, she further keeps clients looking young and beautiful.
Alleviating painful or otherwise disruptive symptoms only accounts for half of the treatment philosophy at Think Acupuncture. With an appreciation for traditional methods as well as modern medical knowledge, the practice's licensed acupuncturists also look to strengthen the body's self-healing capabilities. To accomplish this, the therapists can use precisely placed acupuncture needles, aromatic moxibustion treatments, or Chinese herbal medicine, aiming to restore a balanced flow of the chi?the body's natural energy. When internal harmony is regained, organ systems are better able to function and interact as they collectively address the underlying conditions that may ultimately be responsible for clients' aches and pains. The holistic focus of these approaches promotes a sense of well-being that takes physical, mental, and emotional health into equal consideration.
Dr. Richard Lambertson and Dr. Steven Gervasio along with their team of chiropractors, massage therapists, and fitness trainers aim to educate and empower their clients in ways they can live healthier lives. In addition to treating pain and soreness that already exists, they take preventative measures during their 8 Weeks to Wellness program as well as lifestyle-modification, functional fitness training, and nutritional-counseling services. Chiropractic treatments can involve the Active Release and Graston Techniques, which can help erase pain from clients of all ages and activity levels.
