On the surface, asthma, low libido, migraines, and indigestion all seem very different. But they do share a common thread: they’re all conditions that Dr. Samuel Y. Kim treats with acupuncture. The proud owner of a PhD and a license to perform acupuncture, Dr. Kim uses his expertise during sessions of eight-bodily-constitution acupuncture. This specialized discipline emphasizes treating the root cause of an ailment as opposed to its symptoms. It also incorporates a broader way to help prevent disease, which is why Dr. Kim also offers consultations on optimizing diets to establish and maintain good health.
Drs. Carmelo and Aracely Plateroti channel nearly two decades of holistic medical care when helping promote natural healing within their patients’ bodies. Many of their treatments blend Eastern and Western practices, such as the Meridian Stress Assessment—which uses a combination of acupuncture and modern diagnostic tools to locate the body’s weaknesses. Acupuncture points are also used during Acugems Facial Rejuve, a treatment designed by the doctors to help renew and tighten complexions.
With 45 years of chiropractic experience between them, Drs. Steven and Sharon Lark holistically help patients of all ages overcome aches and illness through spinal adjustments.

Backworks' Doctor of Chiropractic David Markovich, who has treated aches and pains for more than 20 years, prides himself on having the knowledge and experience to help those who haven't found previous therapies to be successful. But he also knows that some people need something different than his care, and he only accepts patients who he thinks he can actually help.
By performing exams, analyzing postures, taking x-rays, and constructing detailed family trees, he ferrets out the ways injuries and soreness manifest in different bodies. After that, Dr. Markovich constructs an individualized course of treatment for his patients.
He conducts the treatments in a setting that he describes as relaxed and informal, "so it does not feel like a sterile medical environment." Assisting him is Marta Pena, a certified massage therapist who supplements chiropractic treatments with massage modalities such as deep tissue and sports therapy.
Dr. Stone Beck is not only a licensed chiropractor and wellness consultant; he also is an avid athlete. Because he participates in competitive cycling and a variety of local sports, he is familiar with what it takes to keep a high-performance body healthy. The English- and Spanish-speaking doctor shares his passion for vitality through speaking engagements and as a member of the nonprofit group Wellness Professionals, where he emphasizes preventive-care strategies such as stress management and not throwing surprise parties for bears.
That balance between preventive care and focused treatments informs Tower Chiropractic and Wellness's holistic approach, which blends spinal adjustments and corrective exercise regimens with sound lifestyle advice and nutritional tips. Patients can zero in on acute nerve and muscle pain with cold laser therapy, but they can also consult the website for recommendations on healthy cooking oils or the importance of probiotics. The result is healthier bodies, but also healthier outlooks freed from common misconceptions about obesity and myths about chiropractic care.
