Growing up in Hangzhou, Jin Fang spent much of her time in her parents' hospital pharmacy. She watched, entranced, as her mother blended skin creams, and perched on a tall stool as her father mixed a rainbow of colored formulas into new medicines. That fascination stayed with Jin throughout her life. In 1995, she rekindled a partnership with former classmate and Shanghai native John Shang, who was also raised by medical practitioners and had pursued a career in orthopedic surgery for 13 years in China. They married, and together brought their passion for herbal medicine and traditional Chinese healing practices to upstate New York. Today, they blend more than 30 years each of acupuncture experience and Chinese and Western healing methods to ease clients' pain, depression, and anxiety. They release endorphins and balance energy during acupuncture treatments, massage tense muscles using tui na Chinese massage, and open pores and miniature gardens during sessions of herbal facial steaming. Jin, John, and their staff also provide nutritional counseling and yoga instruction for patients looking to reverse infertility. Their treatments complement a range of herbal medications, many of which Jin formulated after first encountering depression, anxiety, and insomnia among Cornell University and Ithaca College students. Her roster of herbal formulas includes Happy Mood, which treats depression, Baby Boom, which addresses infertility, and Grow Taller, which aims to stimulate bone growth in children and enable adults to clean the gutters with ease.

Parker Chiropractic's licensed massage therapist, Rhonda Shute, kneads worries into thin air with treatments designed to promote relaxation and relieve muscle tension. Anxiety-ridden areas are smoothed into submission for one hour, loosening knots and revealing inter-organ chatter about the appendix. A 30-minute performance evaluation, patterned after those utilized in professional sports medicine, is designed to diagnose potential soft-tissue problems. The staff devises a treatment plan for each patient, which may include boosting tissue strength through conditioning or removing hefty backpacks full of bowling-ball catalogs. Doctor of Chiropractic Parker is an American Chiropractic Association member with a specialization in rehabilitating painful work injuries and acute or chronic athletic injuries.
The masterful practitioners at Acupuncture Community Clinic treat New World stresses with a variety of Old World de-stressers. Acupuncture offers an alternative healing outlet for those suffering from both everyday and atypical ailments. After a consultation that determines problem areas, an acupuncturist pokes the skin with narrow needles in zones known to emanate a ripple effect of relief. Similar to acupuncture, cupping corrects bodily complications such as sluggish blood flow, muscle spasms, and toxin buildup by hiring glass or plastic cups to apply suction to your back. Finally, the one-hour reiki session can combat brain blight and remove energy congestion throughout the body, restoring life force to its full capacity.
Before Jonathan Dehors received his doctor of chiropractic degree from New York Chiropractic College, he received his bachelor of science from Syracuse University.

Dr. Dehors specializes in treating soft-tissue and sports-related injuries, and he even has a patent pending for a tool to treat soft-tissue problems, which has nothing to do with dipping kleenexes in wet cement.
