Licensed massage therapist Katie Rhyme offers more than just your typical spa massage experience. Her therapeutic bodywork is grounded in the trigger-point technique—a deep-tissue modality that increases oxygen flow through focused kneading of the body's pressure points. The results are many, ranging from improved range of motion and circulation to a deep state of relaxation. Clients may also solicit the facility's other holistic services such as acupuncture and expert chiropractic care.
Karla Hermann, a professional hypnotist who uses hypnotherapy as a safe and natural method to effectively help you quit smoking, leads the seminar. Although smokers have different levels of addiction, this hypnosis program applies to any smoker by using the mind-body approach to take you back to when you started smoking and disconnect the wires of your addiction. The system is designed to delve into the emotional triggers of what caused the addiction, and once your subconscious is desensitized, it's forced into a state of reorganization. This seminar can help you gradually taper off to become a non-smoker. The seminar will also include weight-control suggestions.
After studying chiropractic at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and the Palmer College of Chiropractic in Iowa, Doctor of Chiropractic Brian W. Kurth took over a thriving clinic, then parlayed his success there into his own practice. Now at Kurth Chiropractic, he uses state-of-the-art technology to diagnose spines and help put them aright. Dr. Kurth scans patients' spines for muscle tension, misalignment, and vertebrae playing musical chairs before he develops a custom chiropractic plan. He then enlists massage therapists to ease away patients' pain and discomfort. Their strokes boost circulation and cause muscles to slowly uncoil.
The Chinese medicine experts at Acupuncture & Holistic Health Associates have treated more than 30,000 patients since their clinic opened its doors in 1998. Within the comfortable, feng shui-correct treatment rooms, licensed acupuncturists on staff target chronic and acute ailments with fine, sterile needles. Needles aim to restore the flow of energy, or qi, along its designated pathways, carrying away physical, chemical, and emotional stressors in its currents. Common problems treated at the clinic include headaches and back pain, fatigue and depression, or the constant fear that you'll fall through a manhole and be adopted by Ninja Turtles.
The chi master at the Apex Acupuncture & natural Health Clinic seamlessly weaves Chinese medicine stretching back 3,000 years with modern medicine's focus on disease and pathology. At the clinic, third-generation acupuncturist Nancy Yuan Luan adds express lanes to the body's energy highways through the shallow insertion of pre-sterilized, disposable needles at precise points. In addition to her mastery of ancient Chinese techniques, Yuan Luan's expertise led her to cofound the AcuBeauty anti-aging system, the AcuFit weight-loss system, and the AcuRelief pain-management system, which all blend acupuncture methods with specially selected herbal remedies. A pivotal component of the AcuBeauty system, the microcurrent Acu-FaceLift treatment gently transmits electrical impulses and AM radio signals into facial cells to help increase the production of elastin and collagen to combat signs of aging.
