Although becoming a doctor is a good way to make any family proud, the family of Dr. Zhizhong Nan—of Nan's Acupuncture and Wellness Clinic—were especially delighted upon his graduation. That's because by going into acupuncture, Dr. Nan became the third generation of his family to practice this ancient art. Now, more than than 20 years later, he uses his experience in traditional Chinese medicine to heal patients for a range of maladies. Using tiny needles, he can harness the body's chi and natural energy to heal itself, whether he's calming down kids with ADHD or helping insomniacs get to sleep at night. His treatments can also be used for more debilitating illnesses, from pain to asthma to TMJ. Rather than just alleviating symptoms by prescribing numbing medication or giving patients more and more candy until they feel better, acupuncture helps Dr. Nan resolve the core issue behind illnesses.

Additionally, Doctors of Chiropractic Timothy Nelson and Paul Marmalick both trust adjustments to assuage sore or aching bodies, and a physical therapist will team up with the chiropractors to help rehabilitate clients after injuries.

At Adjustments & Acupuncture, Doctor of Chiropractic Deb Hirabai uses more than 14 years of acupuncture experience to guide her patients toward active lifestyles.
