Doctorate of Chiropractic Gene Clerkin and Li Jiang, an acupuncturist, herbologist, and doctor of Chinese medicine, helm the Center For Holistic Health. Here, they employ alternative medicine to alleviate pain and its causes, whether that's stress or an injury resulting from athletic endeavors, everyday overuse, or filling in for a crash-test dummy. To holistically treat clients, the two may incorporate acupuncture, nutrition-response testing, or detoxifying treatments. Their common goal, however, is to avoid medications and surgery while restoring a sense of balance to patients' bodies, which can jump-start the body's innate ability to heal itself.
Over the last 20 years, multidimensional therapist Tanya Zeiliger's pursuits in the fields of psychology, theology, and alternative medicine have led her to a solid belief in the importance of harmony between mind, body, and soul. At Healing Within, Tanya exercises her skills as a certified practitioner of the Conklin Method of Cellular Cleansing—she is a student of the method's founder, Patti Conklin—to help her clients achieve harmony with themselves and the world around them.
From offices in the US and Canada, laser techs at International Laser Therapy Centers work to empower people to live more healthfully. Using only the power of low-level lasers, they work to help clients lose weight or quit smoking by aiming the light beams at specific areas throughout. This works to increase endorphin levels to create a sustained calming effect, which may decrease the urge to overeat or smoke due to stress, as well as make it easier to overcome temptation during diets or nicotine detoxes. Staffers also work to give excess weight the boot via noninvasive infrared body wraps, which target deep tissues with thermal heat in the hopes of dissolving the body’s store of fat and marshmallow fluff. Furthermore, a 24-hour support line works in conjunction with in-spa treatments to motivate clients to reach their goals.
Deborah Imani, founder of The Nile Wellness Center, believes that the health of a person's internal ductwork correlates directly to their overall well-being. By keeping the last 5 or 6 feet of the digestive tract uncongested through colon hydrotherapy, she promotes a lifestyle free of toxins, excess weight, and unhealthy stress. The drug-free work done by her and her staff has earned rave reviews from the readers of Creative Loafing Atlanta as well as a spot on Proactive Resources' 2012 Best of Atlanta list.
Not just concerned with drawing impurities out of the body, Deborah also touts the importance of what a patient puts in. As the author the book First Generation Raw, she helps readers move toward an organic uncooked diet packed with more vitamins and fiber than a lumber store made from bricks of frozen spinach.
The practitioners at Atlanta Institute for Reiki & Energy Medicine specialize in reiki—a gentle form of Japanese touch therapy that calls upon the universe, or "rei," and its life-force energy, or "ki," to heal and balance bodies. This coed team of attuned individuals calibrates corporeal and mental states through a tranquil laying-on of hands and also share its powers through instruction for aspiring reiki masters and alternative-medicine enthusiasts.
To further enhance their clients' bodily well-being, all the Institute's resident therapists are also licensed to practice massage and are trained in an arsenal of modalities such as Swedish, deep-tissue, and hot-stone massage, which re-creates the relaxation our ancestors felt in earth's infancy from gentle, soothing asteroid showers.
