Dr. Corey Carwile of Tidewater Wellness Centers recognizes that not everyone is an athlete—though Dr. Carwile did play soccer in college— the licensed chiropractor takes the time to customize treatments to fit the needs and health goals of each client. The doctor alleviates headaches, muscle soreness, and body aches with traditional adjustment techniques as well as with computerized instruments from Pulstar and Impulse iQ that chart progress digitally. The office also offers massage from a licensed therapist, exercise instruction, Lipo-Light treatments, and better lifestyle guidance than a Magic 8-Ball inside a fortune cookie.

Driven by an interest in helping people to heal without the use of medicine, Taehee Cho became a licensed acupuncturist in 2008 and opened NUGA Acupuncture Clinic in March 2011. Each acupuncture session begins with a short consultation, in which Taehee evaluates the body's flow of energy as a whole before adjusting it with acupuncture needles. His acupuncture treatments aim to relieve both the underlying causes and the symptoms of diverse ailments, including musculoskeletal pain, migraines, gastrointestinal problems, and bones that swap places in the night. Other services include cosmetic acupuncture and the herb rejuvenation peel, which resurfaces facial skin without harsh chemicals, and the skin-smoothing DermaPen, which uses micro-needles to smooth fine lines and stretch marks while minimizing pores and scars.
