Cardinale Acupuncture is owned and operated by Chet Cardinale, a licensed acupuncturist with extensive training beneath his homeopathic belt. Sidle up to his perforation palace, prepared to explain your particular maladies and allow the treatment to be tailored to your individual needs. Acupuncture technique draws on the ancient concept of qi, the life force that flows through the body, and remains a vital part of health care in Japan, China, Vietnam, Korea, and other countries. It works by applying small, virtually painless needles to areas of the body where qi likes to hang out, stimulating proper energy flow and relieving impediments to good health. In 2003, the World Health Organization issued a review of clinical trials that suggested acupuncture may be an effective treatment for a range of conditions including headaches, nausea, sprains, and allergies.

Q&A with the Doctor Of Chiropractic

What is one of your signature services? How is it performed?
BodyLight consists of eight pads that are placed directly on the skin for 15 minutes. They emit a specific wavelength of light, mimicking the body's own natural fat loss process by opening a pore through which the fat empties. Each session is followed by 10 minutes of vibration therapy along with nutritional counseling.

What’s your favorite part about your job?
I have the opportunity to help others improve their quality of life by helping them achieve their health goals.

Knowledge is power, especially when it comes to physical health. Doctor of Chiropractic Christina Trzaska helps patients take control of their health by sharing her knowledge. She educates her clients while performing a variety of healing techniques, including drop-table adjustments, kinesiology taping, and Graston-technique massages, which incorporate smooth stainless-steel instruments to create a cross-friction movement across the soft tissues. Dr. Trzaska's practice also has elements of a spa; clients can relax in a Himalayan-salt infrared sauna, for example.

Patricia Mahone and Barbara Simpson, the healers at Gate of Life, treat patients holistically, employing a combination of modern Western medicine and traditional Eastern acupuncture and moxibustion. The duo use their years of experience and understanding of Five Element acupuncture to treat the root cause of patients' pain. Sessions commence with an initial assessment, during which therapists evaluate patients' medical history and determine that they are not evil twins. The therapist then gently inserts the thin needles along the body, targeting specific energy points to help to relieve aches, strengthen the immune system, increase energy levels, and, ultimately, free up stagnant chi. Gate of Life also provides moxibustion sessions⎯burning cones made of the Chinese plant moxa⎯along the acupuncture's injection sites to enhance the treatment's effects.

New Health Chiropractic & Vibration Studio's husband-and-wife team of experienced chiropractors work together to pinpoint the cause of chronic symptoms, marshaling holistic services to help the body heal itself. Chiropractic treatments aim to unblock frazzled nervous systems, improving holistic health and the ability to snake through rush-hour traffic. Other noninvasive therapies, including whole-body vibration and nutritional programs, can reduce cellulite and enhance weight-loss efforts by detoxifying cells and boosting metabolism. The studio's signature total health solution package combines all of the above for a powerful approach that is greater than the sum of its parts.
