The skillful staff at Advanced Acupuncture combines Chinese tui na massage techniques with traditional acupuncture practice to alleviate maladies such as physical pain, depression, and stress. After a 15-minute consultation answers clients' questions about the treatment, licensed acupuncturist Chung Jen Tsai pokes tiny, sterile needles into the skin at precise points along the body's energy pathways, called meridians, during a half-hour acupuncture session. A mildly stimulating electric current enhances the treatment and recharges the body's battery-powered life-support systems. Finally, a 10-minute traditional Chinese massage de-kinks remaining muscle knots.
The staff of Thrive Wellness Center takes a holistic approach to health, blending ancient techniques with modern technologies. The center offers acupuncture, yoga, and massage to treat myriad maladies, from aches and pains to fertility issues.
Coming from a family tree that had been sprouting medical practitioners for three centuries, Dr. Lev Sudakov has other people’s well-being in his blood. He founded Ocean Drive Chiropractic and Wellness Center in 2008 with the goal of helping his clients "get their lives back" through chiropractic care's potential to soothe chronic pain and other maladies. Drawing inspiration from his ancestors' tradition for patient-focused care, Dr. Sudakov harnesses the newest of technologies, such as Class IV K-Laser therapy, ultrasounds, and electrical muscle stimulation to treat his clients.
Dr. Sudakov uses massage therapy to banish stress, amplify the effects of chiropractic treatments, or soothe muscles sore from giving piggyback rides to Abraham Lincoln’s statue. His bilingual staff also offers nutritional counseling, helping everyone supplement the office's wellness-boosting treatments.
Specializing in neuro-musculoskeletal rehabilitation—the treatment of injured nerves, muscles, and bones—Dr. Quoc Nguyen and his spine-savvy staff perfect postures and alleviate bodily discomfort with a vast array of hands-on treatments. After discussing concerns and treatment options during the consultation, Dr. Nguyen thoroughly surveys spinal regions, testing reflexes and flexibility while removing marionette strings. Patients may then opt for their choice of treatments, such as a spinal adjustment or soft-tissue manipulation, before soothing muscle miscreants with a relaxing 15-minute hydromassage. Alternately, the neuromuscular massage sends a certified therapist's hands into the body’s deepest contours and subterranean tissue, delivering deliberate strokes to roll out chronic pain due to injuries, repetitive stress, and carrying your car to work that morning.
At Broward Acupuncture and Holistic Medicine, Johanna Nazzar bridges Eastern and Western medicine to forge a holistic health plan catered to each patient. Nazzar draws on the physiological, environmental, and psychosocial components of each patient’s health before prescribing acupuncture, Chinese herbs, or auricular therapy to help restore balance. Physicians also employ detailed diagnostic tools to evaluate the body, including hair-tissue analysis, food sensitivity tests, and biophotonic scanners that evaluate antioxidant levels.
The expert laser technicians at Pines Total Health Center evict unwelcome body fur with the help of noninvasive laser light pulses. Hair-removal treatments begin with an assessment, during which a depilation specialist determines which level of laser light to use based on the client's chosen target areas, the skin's condition, and its taste in pop music. Fuzz fighters looking to deforest small areas, such as upper lips (a $675 value), chins (a $799 value), or underarms (a $900 value), relax as concentrated light beams ease across target areas, safely penetrating skin to target strands at the root.
