Deanna Kayyali helps patients find relief from pain by using a combination of the five branches of Oriental Medicine: Acupuncture and adjunct therapies; Chinese herbal remedies; diet and lifestyle analysis; bodywork; and meditation, self-awareness, and spiritual connection.

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.
Most of the staff members at Heritage Health share one major similarity: they aim to heal. But depending on which treatment you choose, they attack health problems from completely different angles. When Western medicine needs an extra boost, the acupuncturist steps in to soothe pain and stave off illness with the traditional Chinese treatment. 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.
As a naturopathic doctor, Tom Demaro combines natural treatments and advanced technology to spark dramatic change in the body. Infra-Slim may be the most notable result of this innovative approach: Demaro fused the idea of pressure therapy, which has long been used to help patients suffering from circulatory problems, with infrared heat, which natural healing experts often call on for its detoxifying powers. The treatment is based on the idea that when fat cells heat up, they expand; add pressure to the mix, and the cell walls will burst, flushing their contents out through the body's lymphatic system. Infra-Slim is said to trim up to five inches from the waistline in as little as three sessions, a claim the center backs up on its website.
Integrated Health Center's Dr. Kenneth Szarka––chiropractor, nutrition guru, and performance coach for the Colorado Mammoth lacrosse team––leads a staff of licensed practitioners whose holistic treatments meld Eastern and Western medical practices. Within private rooms wrapped in hues of cream and taupe, staffers ease out illness with services that include nutritional counseling, chiropractic adjustments, and acupuncture. Dr. Szarka and his crew also empower clients to find their own voice for self-advocacy by teaching them to sing their medical history to the tune of their choice of top 40 hits.
The Doctors at Maximized Health take a methodical approach to chiropractic care. Before administering any of his signature adjustments, he establishes what the patient's spine should look like. This technique, called clinical biomechanics of posture, helps him pinpoint any abnormalities in the discs that can lead to headaches, dizziness, and back pain. They then tailors a treatment to gently nudge the discs into healthier positions, and helps manage pain with medical-grade massage.
