A chiropractor, a doctor of naturopathic medicine, a doctor of herbal and integrative medicine, and a trio of massage therapists work at LifeSense Chiropractic + Wellness Studio. It is their home away from home, where they spend their days helping patients find relief from new and chronic pain.

Dr. Ronald Latch and the crew at Westmount Chiropractic and Massage Clinic have realigned clients’ inner frameworks for more than 20 years. Boasting hands that could tame a puma, Westmount’s registered massage therapists melt away tension with choice of multiple massage techniques, excluding hot stone massage. The therapeutic massage breaks up scarring and fibrosis in the myofascial layers, tending to generalized tissue adhesions or focusing on spots injured from playing sports or extreme backgammon. For comprehensive calming, therapists administer soothing strokes while singing whale songs during the relaxation massage. Alternative approaches include reflexology, which stimulates pressure points on the hands and feet that correspond to the rest of the body.
Registered Acupuncturist and Nutritionist Laurie Zinger began her journey as a healthcare professional in the early 1990s, when she began to study the effect of whole, natural foods on the body. This study led to her passion for healing through Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and to the founding of Nourish Life TCM. Through Nourish Life, Zinger targets specific ailments with the fine needles of acupuncture and other wellness services such as cupping, which uses gentle suction from glass cups to release muscular tension and extract built up apple juice from the skin. Detailed nutritional counseling helps clients adopt healthier lifestyles through numerous small changes in their diets. Zinger also treats chronic aches and pains with the firm kneads of deep tissue massage. Regardless of the service, each one takes place in Nourish Life's cozy environs. A fireplace roars in the treatment room, and hardwood floors run throughout.
Doctors Martin Wang and Dongying Xu help clients cope with the effects of bodily maladies both tangible and intangible with the power of ancient Chinese medicinal techniques. Acupuncture, herbal therapy, and therapeutic massage allay symptoms ranging from chronic pain and problems with smoking to psoriasis and arthritis. Should acupuncture’s hair-thin needles leave clients anxious, the doctors bring the full and similar power of acupressure to bear on the body, realigning and manipulating meridians to maximize the body’s ability to heal itself. In addition to their in-office treatments, the pair also store a library's worth of folk remedies on their website, helping readers combat common complaints ranging from seasonal sneezing to turning to stone.
By fine-tuning her clients' mind-body connections, certified and registered hypnotherapist Joan Parker helps people access their mental reserves to give willpower a fighting chance.
