Family Chiropractic Wellness Centre's Doctors of Chiropractic Jennifer Lovely and Sean Whittal met in chiropractic college, and now supplement spinal adjustments with other services such as acupuncture and exercise counseling in a newly constructed facility with comfortable surroundings. Eschewing the methods of quick-fix chiropractics, the thorough doctors advocate regular adjustments enhanced by the emerging wellness model and an arsenal of chiropractic techniques. The team also aims to prevent health issues before they start with such conscientious measures as bone-strengthening nutritional plans and prevention of slipped disks by keeping stray banana peels away from lumbar regions.
Located at Nguyen Chiropractic and Rehabilitation Centre, Med-Lazer beautifies physiques with noninvasive laser treatments. With IPL hair removal, powered by the elōs system, trained laser techs manipulate light and radio frequencies to permanently shut down unwanted follicle growth or use foto facials that draw on similar technology to fade age spots. Laser skin-tightening and cosmetic-acupuncture treatments lift sagging skin to lend faces a more youthful look without the hassle of surgery or the unlimited financial resources required to locate the fountain of youth.
Doctor of Chiropractic James Wawrow leads the skilled staff at Global Wellness Chiropractic and Laser Centre, which has tended to backs and bodies with wellness programs for two decades. The chiropractic caregivers and certified laser therapists treat each patient's body as a synchronized organism, rather than as a cluster of disparate systems held together with tape. Traditional chiropractic care, including exams and adjustments, can address concerns such as lower-back pain, headaches, and sciatica. But the practitioners also move clients toward optimal health with the aid of low-level lasers, which, when applied to acupuncture points, can channel the body's flow of energy to promote healing.
Acupuncturist Soya Lee totes an impressive resumé that includes a master's degree in traditional oriental medicine. This expertise helps her administer tailored homeopathic services that include—in addition to the 2,500-year-old art of acupuncture—moxibustion, cupping, and gua sha. Through Chinese herbs, acupressure points, or stream-of-consciousness poetry, Lee's holistic therapies treat and abate a range of mental and physical conditions.
Pistons player Tayshaun Prince may have a few feet on Dr. Shuyun Xu, but when it comes to treating pain and walking through doorways without ducking, she’s the star. A photo of the towering NBA player and Dr. Xu on her website shows the pair beaming after a session, speaking to the adeptness of her skills and the warmth of her personality. Both her talent and joy stem from a life spent helping others. Dr. Xu’s quest toward holistic healing began when she was 5 and started learning traditional Chinese techniques from her mother and grandmother. She went on to study at some of China’s leading universities and hospitals before importing her skills to Troy Acupuncture Center. Here, her patients reap the benefits of her learning through acupuncture, cupping, and moxibustion treatments.
All three traditional Chinese practices aim to unblock chi—energy that flows through the body along channels. Through the insertion of fine acupuncture needles, pressure from cupping, or the burning of moxibustion’s signature herb, Dr. Xu frees blocked chi and helps assuage a plethora of conditions ranging from insomnia and smoking addiction to infertility and hypertension.
The therapists at First Oriental Therapy Center help bodies and minds heal themselves with relaxing massage and acupuncture services. While they’re versed in traditional massage techniques—such as Swedish, deep tissue, and hot stone—therapists also reduce headaches with cranio-sacral therapy and release bad energy by caressing acupressure points. Likewise, their acupuncture treatments correct imbalanced pathways with thin needles placed at the body’s energy hotspot and birthmarks in the shape of I-75.
