Many people associate chiropractic care with sore backs. Jeremy Bernath, a doctor of chiropractic, ends up working with a much broader group of patients, though. At HealthStrong Chiropractic and Rehabilitation, he oversees a team working to treat carpal tunnel, headaches, and a range of other issues. Because the back is connected to so many other systems, simple adjustments to the spine or changes in posture can help. The crew also relies on a range of high-tech equipment, x-ray machines, and computers that aren't grossed out by the human body.
At Pacific Empire Chiropractic, Doctor of Chiropractic Gary L Sannes and his staff strive to foster overall health. In order to do that, they perform an array of services, which range from chiropractic treatments, such as adjustments, to holistic therapies, such as massages. To top things off, they offer nutritional counseling, helping clients reduce their weight, control their blood pressure, and join the cholesterol honor roll.
It was inside his grandfather's herbal pharmacy in Taiwan that Shawn Tseng realized his passion for ancient acupuncture and oriental medicine. After beholding the renewed vigor and celebratory slam dunks displayed by patient after patient, Shawn hit the books in America before returning to his homeland for a hands-on externship at the Chang Gung Memorial Hospital. Now, the acupuncturist surrounds himself with a passionate staff whose journeys are every bit as personal as his own. Just ask them and they'll attest to the positive changes they've seen in their own lives thanks to the healing properties of oriental medicine and mind-body restoration.
Trained to treat everything from arthritis and asthma to joint pain and sciatica, Shawn's crew cycles between traditional and electro-acupuncture and massage therapy, tailoring treatments to clients’ individual conditions and desires. In a comfy, half-open setting, patients rest on recliners or treatment tables as staffers restore mind-body balance via acupressure points, meridian lines, and cooperative spirit animals.
As a board-certified acupuncturist and herbalist, Abraham Lim specializes in relieving chronic pain and helping his clients overcome ailments such as insomnia and depression. He accomplishes this by adopting a holistic and naturalistic approach that's based on the millennia-old teachings of traditional Chinese medicine.
Lim’s acupuncture treatments mainly help clients find relief by correcting energetic imbalances and reenergizing the body’s natural healing capabilities, but he can also use his ultra-thin needles for cosmetic purposes. Such procedures stimulate collagen production throughout the face to dramatically improve skin tone and texture without resorting to surgical facelifts or Botox injections. Herbal remedies similarly restore a sense of balance to the body as organic medicines derived from roots, bark, seeds, flowers, and leaves help alleviate symptoms caused by everything from allergies to fatigue.
At The Body Center, a staff of physical therapists works with Pilates instructors to mend injured bodies while strengthening clients’ defenses against future discomfort. Individualized treatment plans help clients overcome the effects of auto accidents or sporting mishaps, such as trying to swim laps in an ice rink. The fleet of Stott-certified Pilates instructors take participants to the next fitness level by guiding them through a series of intricate moves on specialized equipment. Before stopping by for an appointment, consider loading the car with any unwanted backpacks, clothing, or baby supplies, as The Body Center serves as a collection site for local charities.
