Seeing firsthand the positive effects that chiropractic medicine has had on his clients keeps Dr. Wayne Hansen passionate about his profession. At Solutions Clinic, he delivers these inspiring results by selecting the most suitable treatment plan from a list of specialties that includes traditional adjustments, ice and heat therapy, and the application of kinesio tape to support weak muscles or conceal them with wrapping paper. He can tailor his services to treat a specific condition, too, be it upper back pain, tennis elbow, or carpal tunnel. Solutions Clinic also employs a massage therapist and a dietician is available at all clinics to draw up healthy meal plans and show clients the proper way to dead lift a 5-pound bag of apples.
Doctor of Chiropractic Malka Carlucci believes in old-school bedside manner—she personally sees every patient who comes into her office and never hurries them through their appointments. Instead, she discusses their symptoms and history in detail before conducting chiropractic exams. When paired with adjustments, these visits strive to address both chronic and acute pain stemming from a wide range of conditions.
Dr. Carlucci treats injuries and whiplash with the same meticulous care as she does headaches, joint soreness, and carpal-tunnel syndrome, as well as long-term back and neck pain. Her services also include therapeutic exercises and medical massage, which can steadily repair and soothe muscles. Lifestyle and nutrition advice complete many of her holistic treatment programs.
While earning her master's degree in Traditional Oriental Medicine, Stephanie Gross worked with college athletes to help them heal more quickly from injuries. She also spent time at hospitals in Beijing and time in San Diego working with HIV patients, using acupuncture treatments to help them find relief from medication side effects. Now at the helm of her own clinic, S. Gross Acupuncture & Chinese Medicine, the licensed acupuncturist treats clients suffering from chronic pain, allergies, depression, digestive issues, and sleep disorders. These varied health complaints are tended to with a custom treatment plan for each patient.
Dr. Blake Butler works to bring body, mind, and spirit in harmony through traditional Chinese medicine. He frequently treats chronic pain, fatigue, allergies, vertigo, knee problems, headaches, and carpal tunnel syndrome. In addition to acupuncture treatments, Dr. Butler incorporates chiropractic adjustments and nutritional counseling into his treatment plans.
Andrea, the holistic therapist behind Blissful Being Massage & Bodywork, brings bodies back into balance. She draws on nearly two decades of experience to perform specialized techniques, such as targeted injury massages and deep-tissue massages, which work out chronic aches and pains. Additional treatments with clay masks, warm stones, and hot towels leave clients feeling relaxed and pampered.
Drawing from his experience helping professional athletes get in the zone, hypnotist and author Jake Shannon uses his craft to aid clients in achieving peak mental performance so they can effectively discard unwanted dependencies. During hypnotherapy sessions, Shannon speaks to subjects using encouraging language, giving them what he refers to as a "massage of the mind." Through one or multiple sessions, clients learn to relax, meditate, and use positive reinforcement to reverse behavior that can exacerbate smoking habits, weight problems, or excessive anxiety.
