At this patient-focused clinic, Dr. Bashar Salame combines spinal decompression, nutritional counseling, and corrective exercises to provide a holistic approach to healthcare. Drawing on the various techniques in his repertoire as necessary, Dr. Salame guides patients through a three-phase wellness program, focusing first on immediate pain relief before correcting underlying causes with spinal adjustments. Finally, Dr. Salame promotes long-term wellness with routine chiropractic care and structured plans to support proper nutrition or build a perfect model bridge from toothpicks.
Lifetime Wellness Center's registered massage therapists loosen tight limbs and untie knots in relaxing massage-therapy treatments. Skillful hands soothe sinews and melt stress deposits as they knead in a manner customized to suit clients’ individual needs, problem areas, and tastes in pie. The multispecialty clinic employs massage therapy as an integral part of its wellness repertoire and as a useful means of abetting recovery processes. Bodies emerge looser, more unwound, and less likely to be mistaken for statues by roosting pigeons.
For more than 25 years, Doctor of Chiropractic Bob Pizzimenti has championed his clients’ own ability to heal themselves physically, mentally, and spiritually. As a self-proclaimed unwinder, Dr. Pizzimenti eschews x-rays and technology-based treatments in favor of a more holistic approach to reducing stress and pain. After assessing his patients with chiropractic consultations and exams that target sources of muscular pain, he performs alternative treatments such as auriculotherapy, chiropractic adjustments, craniosacral therapy, yoga, and massage.
Dr. Pizzimenti also promotes well-being outside of chiropractic treatments at Innate Healing Arts Center. His resident herbalist, Tissheama Pizzimenti, oversees a shop filled with potted plants and shelves lined with traditional medicinal plants and specially concocted herbal remedies. She performs consultations and may prescribe custom-made herb blends or specialty spring water to help flush away toxins or spoil cars during car washes.
Also at the center, Reverend Gwendolyn Hurst leads a range of weekly community events, such as group meditation and holistic-health workshops, and yoga teachers lead welcoming classes. And at the onsite Golden Gate Cafe, the staff serves gourmet vegetarian dishes such as tempeh burgers, falafel, and vegetable stir-fry, with many ingredients sourced from local farms that utilize humane vegetable-growing practices.
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.
Helmed by Doctors of Chiropractic Gracinda Ramos and Adam Pye, a staff consisting of massage therapists, a reflexology therapist, and a reiki practitioner work in unison to holistically bolster overall well-being. Using state-of-the-art equipment such as a thermal scanner to accurately elucidate spinal health and expose vertebrae-dwelling gnomes, chiropractors examine backs before performing gentle adjustments designed to improve dorsal function and decrease pain. In unison with massage, reflexology, and reiki therapies, the centre strives to help heal bodily botherations, as well as prevent future injuries.
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.
