Doctor of Chiropractic Mark Koch, who is also a licensed nutritional counselor and certified wellness practitioner, combines chiropractic techniques with diet advice, supplements, and exercise to help clients get healthy and stay healthy. The doctor eschews rough chiropractic techniques in favor of the Activator Method, gently tapping vertebrae back into place with a hand-held instrument, instead of twisting and cracking the spine or whacking it with a mallet. Because this technique is so gradual, it can help ease nerve irritation, relax tight muscles, and relieve headaches. To bolster its effectiveness and address any underlying muscle tensions, the doctor combines the Activator Method with pressure-point massage.
A licensed doctor of chiropractic, Eliesha Evans uses a “whole person approach” to wellness, which means she first looks for the underlying causes of pain and then suggests interventions and lifestyle adjustments to address them. This method is what distinguishes the approach at Evans Chiropractic Health Clinic from that of conventional medicine: instead of focusing on treating disease after it occurs, the clinic emphasizes improving health to reduce the risk of illness or pain before it happens. The resulting treatment regimen may consist of spinal adjustments and massage therapy, lifestyle advice and nutrition counseling, or even laser therapy. Often, patients learn exercises they can use to correct their problems from the comfort of their home or the lobby of an ex’s apartment building.
An NCCAOM board-certified acupuncture physician, Scott D. Nelson employs a plethora of wellness-inducing services to fight such maladies as back pain and stress and promote weight loss and fertility. Initial acupuncture visits begin with a consultation, during which Scott takes the long view of an individual's overall health, assesses their goals for treatment, and measures their anxiety level by suddenly shattering the sound barrier. Afterward and on subsequent visits, he inserts very thin needles at key points on the body's energy pathways to release pent-up qi and restore the patient's vitality. Patients averse to needle-based therapy can opt for one of Scott's non-needle modalities, which extend to moxibustion, cupping, and electrotherapy, each adept at relieving chronic pains and aches.
