Skeletons never get a day off. As the framework of the body, they're responsible for keeping us upright and mobile. Sometimes, that responsibility comes at a cost. Enter the chiropractic experts of the Chrio-Network. Using their extensive knowledge of the skeletal system and the nuanced adjustments required to keep it up and running, they help clients manage everything from chronic pain and mobility problems to sleep problems and migraines.
It's not a magic trick—at least not in the way TV and movies have portrayed it for years. But for certified hypnotist Maureen V. Meehan, the mind is surprisingly capable of pulling off all-manner of physiological and psychological magic once its in a deep state of relaxation. It's at that time when she can help clients stop smoking, lose weight, or sleep better—and that's just the start of the habits, phobias, and issues she helps clients overcome.
After easing clients into a state of hypnosis—something she says the mind does on its own at least twice a day—she begins to help her clients discover their motivations and the triggers for unwanted behaviors. Together, and usually over the course of about five sessions, she and her clients overcome the obstacles standing in the way of changing those behaviors. As a licensed health care professional, her only goal is to enhance well-being. To ensure that her clients receive only the best care, she re-certifies annually through The National Guild of Hypnotists.
You might not be able to hear them, but the sound waves produced by Benevolent Resonance's vibro-acoustic massage table can be more relaxing than any jazz album. The low-frequency waves target the body––rather than the ears––vibrating the contents of cells to create a soothing massage that can lower blood pressure, alleviate tension, melt away stress, and help to ease pain. To complement the vibro-acoustic table, Benevolent Resonance's massage therapist kneads muscles using integrated massage techniques. Combined, the two modalities relieve tension from head to toe.
A trained and licensed acupuncturist, Marina Gan seeks to share the same ancient Chinese medicine that has so deeply affected her own life. Marina approaches acupuncture as a partnership between herself and her patients—a collaborative relationship founded with the common goal of identifying and counteracting troublesome imbalances in the client’s body or teetering Jenga tower. After such imbalances have been discovered, Gan goes to work on the grounds of the Ruscombe Mansion Community Health Center, a palatial country home built on the estate of the famous Quaker abolitionist James W. Tyson.
There?s something about Dr. Angel Purdy that inspires confidence in her clients. Perhaps it?s the fact that she?s a native of Baltimore, but it more likely has to do with the professional Obagi, Arbonne, and Kinerase products she uses to treat skin during her chemical peels and microdermabrasion treatments. Dr. Purdy also wants her clients to have confidence in themselves, so she helps them feel comfortable in their own skin with laser hair-removal treatments and injectables that smooth away wrinkles. She also performs cosmetic and reconstructive surgery to reduce the appearance of scars, tighten and lift skin, and remove phantom tails that make it painful to sit down.
Licensed acupuncturist Karen S. Oliva embraces toyo hari acupuncture, first developed by blind practitioners in the 1930s. Nicknamed gentle acupuncture, toyo hari employs very subtle palpations to release blockages in the chi—the body's vital energy—that can lead to pain, disease, and March Madness. Karen believes in supplementing acupuncture with holistic therapies such as herbs and facial rejuvenation therapy, which boosts collagen and elasticity in worn-out mugs.
