People from 40 states and 12 countries have come to Tenpenny Integrative Medical Center for treatment. Though the holistic facility offers a range of traditional and alternative medical services, more than 8,000 patients from across the globe have arrived at its door with the specific goal of experiencing the Tenpenny Sensitivity Reduction Technique—T-SRT—an anti-allergy methodology developed by founder Sherri Tenpenny, DO, in 1997. The technique combines three complementary practices—kinesiology, homeopathy, and acupressure—to evaluate and redirect bodily energy. The treatment requires patients to be in contact with the allergen while the practitioner activates a series of acupressure points on the spine, arms, and legs, and it can provide relief from common irritants such as ragweed, food allergens, and infomercials.
The caring, multidisciplinary staff also provides nonpharmaceutical solutions to family health issues. Pediatrician and homeopathic physician Janet Levatin, MD, keeps kids healthy, and Doctor of Chiropractic Matt Grant helps patients manage their chronic pain. Licensed acupuncturist Linda Corlett treats issues from insomnia to weight gain with traditional and needle-free treatments, and holistic gynecologist Dr. Cindy Fraed keeps women healthy with infusions of bio-identical hormones. The center also features breast thermography, a radiation-free detection system that can identify areas of concern up seven years before the abnormality could be detected by traditional mammography.
Tucked inside of a full-service medical clinic, Premier Laser Care administers cosmetic and aesthetic treatments with the assistance of FDA-approved equipment and the supervision of board-certified doctor Carmen Popa. To reinstate youthful full-body beauty, Dr. Popa and her staff utilize ClearScan laser technology to vanquish unwanted hair and vascular issues such as spider veins or broken capillaries; broadband light therapy allows them to pulse away sun spots, age spots, redness, and other issues caused by aging, sun exposure, or a public reading of your fifth-grade diary. Lax skin around the eyes or on the body can be re-tightened with fractional resurfacing or SkinTyte II infrared energy, respectively, and finer lines and wrinkles find themselves swiftly smoothed out after injections of Botox or cosmetic dermal fillers.
