Doctor of Chiropractic Ryan Spicuzzo integrates acupuncture and nutrition into his practice at Deerfield Health and Wellness Center. Dr. Spicuzzo earned his degree at Life University in Marietta, Georgia, thereafter developing a treatment style that's nurturing and effective. Balancing a patient's diet and energy complements a traditional approach to pathology, in which palpation, x-rays, and biting criticism from the doctor's old football coach quickly reveal old wounds that may be healed with adjustments and massage therapy. He and his team use this system to alleviate symptoms and set up maintenance plans for long-term health. In addition to his focus on holistic care, Dr. Spicuzzo specializes in relieving injuries from car accidents and athletics.
Dr. Lenny Bloch welcomes patients to Boca Acupuncture with a client-centered, holistic approach to medicine that asserts that symptoms arise from larger patterns and require compassionate, whole-body attention. After studying his patients' medical charts, he culls from the myriad healing treatments that fall beneath the umbrella of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)—including acupuncture, massage, and herbal medicine—to help the body to find balance and relief from ailments such as women's reproductive issues, pain, and cigarette addiction. Dr. Bloch requests that new clients bring medical records or an intricately labeled Operation board game to give him a clear picture of the history and status of their health problems.
Dr. Bloch became a believer in acupuncture and TCM after suffering a debilitating spinal-cord injury that left him paralyzed from his rib cage down on his right side and complete numb from his rib cage down on his left side. For years, he dealt with traditional western-medicine doctors telling him that he would not regain feeling on his left side, but after turning to Chinese medicine, he was able to once again feel hot, cold, sharp, and dull sensations. He's quick to admit that he still has some sensory issues, but he believes that Chinese medicine pushed him beyond the limits of western medicine, and he wants everyone who walks into his office to have similar results.
