Acupuncture Associates offers a wide range of holistic services designed to help manage pain and stress. Acupuncture sessions are performed by the skilled and certified hands of Vincent Valeriano and customized to suit each patient's needs, lasting up to 45 minutes depending on the amount of treatment required. Using a series of tiny needles, acupuncturists promote blood flow to key areas of the body, which can help relieve pain and tension. The expert manipulation and placement of these needles may alleviate back and neck pain, migraine headaches, arthritis, tendonitis, and can aid in belly-button lint removal.
Get Zen Hot Yoga's team of over ten skilled instructors help share the benefits of yoga at their hardwood studio lined with mirrors and an enormous electric fireplace. Inside the spacious workout room decorated with rich velvet curtains, instructors lead yoga classes. Each class has something different to offer, ranging from power yoga, to body sculpt, to booty bar—a limb-lengthening class that employs a ballet bar to strengthen cores and glutes. The studio’s focus, however, is Hatha and Vinyasa yoga, which relies on temperatures ranging from 98–105 degrees to keep sinews limber while students twist into labyrinthine poses. Classes offer such benefits as weight loss, stress reduction, and detoxification.
Doctor of Chiropractic Steven Kaplan doesn't deal in the symptoms of ailments; he deals with the ailments themselves. He employs x-rays, thorough examinations, and nearly three decades of experience to track down pain at its source, which much of the time is the back or neck. It's here where he hunts for impinged nerves in the spinal column that can disrupt the communication between the brain and body, leading not only to sore backs and stiff necks but also, possibly, to trouble sleeping and poor digestion. Once located, he administers such drug-free, noninvasive techniques as adjustment or spinal decompression.
No matter the source of your discomfort, Origin Holistic aims to relieve it through naturopathic medicine and holistic health care. The services here treat the whole person, focusing on overall wellness rather than targeting specific ailments. The practitioners care for the body without drugs or surgery, instead working on prevention through nutrition, exercise, detoxification treatments, and homeopathic medicine. Hormone-balancing treatments keep the body in tune to prevent fatigue, weight gain, and headaches, whereas prolotherapy and mesotherapy injection techniques treat both joint pain and skin deterioration.
Upon earning a bachelor’s degree in computer science, Christopher Slycord feared he might feel unfulfilled working with machines and not people.

At his practice, he supplements his traditional acupuncture sessions with cupping and Chinese herb regimens, using individualized treatment plans to tackle ailments that range from anxiety and headaches to chronic arthritis and pants-fall-down-a-lot syndrome.
Tami Jones was a dancer since she was 2 years old, but an injury in college prevented her from pursuing it as a career.

Now, she and her fellow instructors teach yoga, Pilates, and barre classes to students of all experience levels.
