Doctor of Chiropractic Jennifer Lynne and her staff help clients to achieve wellness by using alternative methods to reduce the risk of pain and illness. Dr. Lynne prioritizes her chiropractic sessions by first treating any immediate pain, then offering corrective care with spinal adjustments, and finally developing wellness plans that may prevent problems in the future. In private treatment rooms, the staff also soothes muscles with massage therapy, brings bodies into balance with acupuncture, and helps to restore patients' movement with physical therapy.
The clinic is nestled up against a charming gift boutique. Once visitors finish their appointments with Dr. Lynne or a therapist, they can browse through the boutique's selection of quirky decorations, handbags, scented candles, and motivational plaques written by happy backs.
The specialists at Advanced Health Professionals address their clients' ailments with an approach they've dubbed "dynamic rehabilitation." This method marries techniques from both physical therapy and chiropractic care with the hope of delivering speedier recoveries and more balanced bodies. Custom exercises, stretches, and extra algebra homework are often prescribed to help clients continue their healing between appointments.
After a year of living in the corporate-communications world, Sabita knew she needed to change paths. Like a baseball player who runs to first every time he swings, she felt herself becoming too aggressive. In order to reconnect with her inner empathy and sense of place in the world, she decided to commit herself to taking care of others. With that desire in mind, she became a massage therapist and holistic-health counselor and opened the Sabita Holistic Center in 2003 to surround herself with like-minded professionals.
Celebrating their 10th year of business, Sabita and her staff heal guests of all ages and needs with holistic techniques, such as guided meditation, massages specifically tailored to elderly guests, and self-esteem workshops. In addition to leading the classes and workshops, doctors meet with guests to prescribe holistic treatment plans that incorporate Western and Eastern methods. The center even purveys its own beverage: Sabita Tea. It's a kosher-certified organic line that comes in varieties such as peppermint white tea, nutmeg white, and anise—which comes from the eponymous seed-producing plant.
Just as peanut butter teams up with jelly, traditional Western medicines team up with alternative approaches at iMedCenter, in the pursuit of overall wellness. A dedicated staff of medical physicians, therapists, and chiropractic doctors treats patients afflicted with everything from sports injuries to diabetes. They mitigate these ailments through individualized treatment plans designed to efficiently expedite recovery. Their services include therapeutic massages, physical therapy, nutritional counseling, and acupuncture.
The staff strengthens its program of personalized health plans with an abundant use of technology, which iMedCenter’s website claims garnered them a Healthcare Heroes Award for Innovation in 2011 from the Governor.
Knowledge and techniques from medical traditions ranging from east to west—including Ayurvedic, traditional Chinese, modern, and naturopathic medicine—come together at Integrated Health Center. Dr. K. Pramila Vishvanath, N.D., active in her communities both stateside and overseas, directs the center. Dr. Pram and her staff target the entire body as opposed to individual symptoms, embracing naturopathic medicine to address conditions such as chronic pain, weight loss, and allergies. Integrated Health Center combines analysis with uniquely tailored solutions for each patient, and the staff conducts healing sessions via Skype if a patient's car catches a case of agoraphobia.
As a registered nurse and energy healer, Maryann Barrett's methods bridge the divide between Western and holistic medicine. She addresses what aspirin and chicken-noodle footbaths can't seem to fix, unblocking energy and shooing away stressors through cranial-temple activation and chakra balancing. She completed her training at the Barbara Brennan School of Healing, an institution whose motto is "Hands of Light Healing Around the World," and is currently working toward a master's degree in integrative health and healing.
