Dr. Mary Beth Luca’s skincare expertise has led to a career path that meanders between the clinical and academic worlds of dermatology. Though formerly an assistant professor of dermatology at The Ohio State University, the board-certified dermatologist now dedicates her full attention to patients at Dermatology and Cosmetic Surgery of Dublin, where she and her trained aestheticians help to keep skin healthy and youthful.
The dermatology practice—which specializes in treatments for malignant melanoma, skin-cancer surveillance, and connective-tissue diseases—carries the equipment necessary for advanced skincare treatments that target health and aesthetic concerns. Among these advanced products and devices are the body-slimming CoolSculpting system and skin-rejuvenating products from Obagi, Jane Iredale, and Clarisonic. Dr. Luca and her team also cleanse complexions with exfoliating microdermabrasion treatments that uproot spying devices implanted in pores.
The staff at Allvera Body Wrap & Wellness Center's Dublin location and recently opened location in Grandview is dedicated to balancing body and mind. To do this, aestheticians, acupuncturists, and massage therapists offer a slew of aesthetic and holistic services, including hot-stone therapy, acupuncture, facials, infrared sauna sessions, and signature herbal body wraps that are soaked and heated to 150 degrees. The center also pampers clients with its use of high-end products including bareMinerals and HydroPeptide skin care lines.
After graduating from Southwest Acupuncture College, board-certified acupuncturist Thomas E. Turpen, MS, R. Ac., continued his training through a World Health Organization program in Beijing. Those experiences inform his approach at Arlington Acupuncture Clinic, where he unburdens patients of pain and treats musculoskeletal disorders with acupuncture and oriental-medicine-based procedures. Along with traditional acupuncture techniques, Turpen practices styles such as Japanese, Chinese, and Korean acupuncture.
He also relieves guests of ailments through more holistic means, such as reiki, medical qi gong, and medical hypnosis, which can help patrons overcome allergies more effectively than swallowing a grain of pollen and making it a part of you. Joel Jones, a licensed therapist, further assists clients by soothing their muscles during massages.
Ahmed Edwards is an experienced healer who restores well-being with traditional acupuncture as well as needle-free laser acupuncture. When he's not teaching or lecturing on his area of expertise, Edwards specializes in treating auto and workplace injuries, promoting fertility, and treating addiction.
Acupuncture is an ancient discipline involving the insertion of ultra-thin, sterile needles in order to reduce pain and help the body heal itself. In addition to increasing circulation and reducing inflammation, these treatments promote holistic health by jump-starting the immune and lymphatic systems and by boosting serotonin levels throughout the body. The clinic's laser systems can also treat people during weight-loss and smoking-cessation laser therapy.
Urban Acupuncture Center grew out of the shared vision of three friends. Licensed acupuncturists Steve Drugan, Sue Bowlus, and Linda Chun were passionate about the ancient Chinese technique's potential to heal?especially after finding personal relief from conditions such as migraines and sciatica?and wanted to make it accessible to more people. After learning that clinics across the country were offering services on a sliding scale, the trio took a trip to Detroit to visit three community acupuncture centers. They saw people from all walks of life receiving acupuncture treatments together, and, recognizing the need for a similar establishment in Ohio, decided to found their own community-minded clinic.
Today, within the center's open, communal setting, patients relax in cushy leather recliners among Asian-inspired room dividers and multimedia works crafted by local artists while thin, sterile needles alleviate the stresses and imbalances that leave bodies low. Patients await treatment on the reception area?s pew-like bench beside a trickling fountain, where they can focus on centering their energies or finding the moisture needed to affix a temporary tattoo.
For more than a decade, the acupuncturists and health professionals at Acupuncture & NAET Clinic have used traditional Eastern medicine to help clients on their path to wellness. Their techniques and treatments aid patients as they work to quit smoking, lose weight, lessen pain, and eliminate allergies. Using techniques and treatments such as cupping, qi gong, and acupuncture, the staff redirects energy throughout the body without relying on cumbersome traffic cones.
