Though their specialties may differ, team members at Intuitive Healing LLC share one important trait: they understand that each human body is a complex organism and that no two are quite alike. This common understanding leads them to reject a one-size-fits-all approach to health and rely instead on custom detoxification and wellness programs.
This clinic’s certified acupuncturists tailor treatment plans that draw on the holistic mindset of traditional Chinese medicine to promote their clients’ overall health. Sessions may combine procedures including cupping and tui na massage with herbal products to address the bodily imbalances that contribute to disease. During acupuncture treatments, the specialists place sterilized, single-use needles on specific anatomical areas, working to correct issues such as arthritis, stress, and headaches caused by wearing ice-cream hats.
After an unfortunate car accident, Michael Vlahoulis suffered a debilitating spinal injury. Though he benefitted some from physical therapy, he noticed the most significant healing came from massage. As soon as his recovery was complete, he attended the Lakeside School of Massage Therapy. Today, this American Massage Therapy Association member massages muscles into relaxed states. Michael received training in craniosacral therapy and skillfully blends an array of modalities such as connective-tissue release and trigger-point therapy. He uses these techniques to soothe carpal-tunnel syndrome, loosen frozen shoulders, and relieve the pain resultant from hunching over a typewriter all day.
